This dress came from a bride on the Blog Offbeat Bride, who was a fan of video games. It's got enough of an edge for Cimorene I think, without messing up her ability to cook for the dragons.
Pippi Longstocking, I also
remember as a rebel. With her trademark crazy braids and striped socks, she'd probably draw attention to her hair and turn the socks into a classy statement.
This ensemble is from Canada.
Nancy Drew was too busy solving crimes to bother with a wedding dress. I would imagine her forgoing shopping altogether and showing up in her usual getup. Then when someone gets murdered at her reception, she'll be all set for crime detection.
Perhaps I'm being influenced by the wedding drama... but thinking about this is refreshing. After awhile, a lot of the dresses in the store start to look the same. So perhaps I just need a headband and some striped socks to spice up the ole wedding outfit. (Hopefully, my sister is not reading this.) I did actually end up buying a dress, but that is top secret at the moment. :)
