Thrift Bound

I LOVE to thrift bound!! For those of you who don't know what bounding is..bounding is basically low key cosplay/ costumes. Bounding started as a way to wear outfits at Disney World since adults can't wear costumes to the park.

And thus, a movement was born. It's not just relegated to Disney. You can Harry Potter Bound, Star Wars Bound, Marvel Bound, DC Bound, Carrie Bradshaw Bound and on and on and on. The only limit is your own creativity!

I started a series on my other blog: Nerd in the City called Thrift Store Cosplay. I would go to the thrift store and find outfits for different characters. And it was right at the beginning of changing my entire wardrobe over to only thrifted, vintage, consignment, recycled, reused and resale pieces.

I gave myself a 30 day challenge. 30 days, 30 characters, 30 new outfits to populate my wardrobe! It was a great way to make the switch to a fully recycled wardrobe, with the whimsy of character driven pieces.

With Halloween approaching and Dapper Day just around the corner, I thought I'd bring back my first run at thrift bounding. Many of the pieces are in the shop and can be found in the "Thrift Bound" collection.
