Creative Costuming: Frontierland!

I've been trying to push this set off for awhile, because I wasn't looking forward to it. At all.

Unlike the other lands, this one doesn't have much iconography to it. Splash Mountain is probably the most notable attraction in this area, but I didn't want to theme any costumes around one particular ride. The Fantasyland set is the only exception to this because I don't consider the carousel a big-ticket ride.

So when I usually think of this land, I immediately think of cowboys and parlour girls.

The parlour girl concept I dropped because I felt it wouldn't mesh as nicely with the cowboy. Fabric clashing, mainly, as most parlour girl outfits are satin-y and of course cowboys are donned in cottons.

I drew some inspiration from the Hoop Dee Doo costumes, admittedly, along with the Frontierland traveling hoedown.

This wraps it up for the Magic Kingdom sets!

Next up are the Epcot sets, which are my favorites!

Costume Count: 8/32
