The Art of Playing Dress Up

I truly believe that every little girl loves to dress up and pretend to be a princess. Some adults do, too! Sophie Arroyo is one of the luckiest girls in the world.  Sophie’s Grandmother and a friend of the family make the most exquisite child-size replica costumes of all the Disney characters for her to wear to the parks. Sophie’s closet looks like a magical dressing room fit for a princess! How lucky is she? Most adults don’t even have a closet as amazing as Sophie’s.

Sophie’s mom, Vel, is a fellow Disney addict. As premier Disney passholders, Vel and her family visit both Disney parks as much as possible. Vel was born and raised in Southern California and living only 20 minutes away from Disneyland, she visited all the time growing up. Vel continues that tradition with her husband and children, visiting at least three times a week. I can’t help but be extremely envious about that!

Sunday’s are their favorite day to visit Disneyland. Sophie, or Mary Poppins as she likes to call herself, is always dressed in costume and  gets tons of compliments and attention – as every little princess deserves. A few weeks ago, Sophie was dressed as the Candy Bakers from the Disneyland Fantasy Christmas parade and her own meet and greet with them. Vel’s husband and son sometimes join in on the action and dress up along with Sophie, but most of the time the focus is on adorable Sophie and her amazing costumes.

I know I will be contacting Sophie’s grandmother on her Facebook page to have some dresses made for CJ when we go back to Disneyland for the diamond anniversary!  Vel also recommended her friend’s Sharan’s Etsy shop for costumes and I KNOW which one we are getting for Halloween this year. Hopefully, CJ can amass a closet like Sophie’s.
