S/O: Fantasy You Challenge!

I loved Una's Fantasy You thread and really loved seeing everyone's fantasy inspirations:

Now I challenge you all to translate your Fantasy You into reality and bring out your inner (UWP, badass, princess, rock star, Parisian, Hepburn, fill in the blanks). I think we all could use more touches of fantasy in our real lives!

I love playing dress up and creating different style personas for the day, so this is right up my alley! 

In my fantasy life I am a pregnant Russian spy:
Or Trinity from the Matrix, secretly working as a secretary:
Or a saloon girl:
Or any of the characters from the Picture Perfect Movie Challenge (Indiana Jones, Princess Leia, Holly Golightly, '20's flapper, Madeleine/Judy:
This is just to get you all started. I'll try to come up with a new outfit for this challenge too!

Post your inspiration photo and your fantasy-inspired outfit. No need to go out and buy costumes (unless you're shopping early for Halloween!), just get creative with what you have! Have fun!

    This is fun!! I could try ... But I would need some time. I am in :)

    Your outfits are fantastic and absolutely true to your fantasy life ^_^

    LOL  Nicely done Natalie.  Your halloween outfits with DH are fab.

    I was thinking the same thing when I read through Una's thread.  I realized I didn't need much to make a few of the ones I posted.  I need to find a few pieces and then make the outfits.  Its a bit ironic that I don't have the loose chambray shirt for one of them but do have the cap.

    Wow! Awesome outfits.

  • replied 7 years ago

    Ha! You are still as fun as I remember. My fave is definitely #3, but they are all amazing and goldenpig-fun! So nice to "see" you. I hope all is well.

    You had me at Pregnant Russian Spy. It's the perfect cover, lol! 

  • jackiec replied 7 years ago

    So fun Natalie! I haven't even been able to load a photo for Una's thread so am a bit behind here...if I can get it together I'll join as well. You are SO good at this :)

    Okay, I give - what is S/O??  http://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/S%2FO

  • goldenpig replied 7 years ago

    It means spinoff. On another board we use it when we're starting another thread based on a previous thread.

  • Parsley replied 7 years ago

    Oh my goodness, these are over the top FABULOUS FUN with FANTASY, Natalie!

    I'm in love with your version of Holly Golightly, but every single one is amazing.  I love your creativity and wonderful imagination!

    Alassë, you look like a young maiden from a fairy tale!

  • goldenpig replied 7 years ago

    Thanks everyone for the compliments, and I hope you all join in the fun too!
    Neel, Dianthus and Jackie, can't wait to see your versions!
    Zap, I haven't been around and posting as much lately because I've been super busy, but I hope you are doing well too!
    Dianthus, these aren't even our Halloween costumes--the saloon girl was for a Wild West holiday party at the office and the gangster/flapper was for a 1920's theme fundraiser at DD's school. This was our Halloween costume from last year--we usually try to dress up in a family theme so DH made his own astronaut costume. This year we're going as the Incredibles.
    Alasse, your gown is spectacular! You look like a gorgeous maiden!
    Can't wait to see what everyone else has in store! Let's play dress up!

  • shedev replied 7 years ago

    I'm in. Will post my pic later.

  • Mary Beth (formerly LBD) replied 7 years ago

    Natalie, this is so much fun!!! And your real life takes on Trinity, the Bond girl, and Vertigo were sooooo perfect!

    This is great inspiration, and I think I will take a whack at this idea tomorrow.

  • rabbit replied 7 years ago

    Your outfits are awesome!!!   I will get back to this, might take a bit...but so fun!

  • Cerinda replied 7 years ago

    Grrr.  Camera in for repairs.  LOVE this thread; can't wait to see more!

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    So much fun, Natalie! I remember those costumes from your early days on the forum. Your kids must adore playing dress up with you. 

    I will try to come up with something. It will be lame, since I haven't even managed to post on Una's thread yet. 

  • Emily replied 7 years ago

    Natalie, your family absolutely wins at costumes.  And your fantasy outfits are amazing - I love the range of looks from your wardrobe.  Indiana Jones is my favourite!

    Here's my version of my fantasy bond-girl self from last year... expect a re-do in the near future! :D

    What an incredibly fun post.  

  • Elizabeth P replied 7 years ago

    I totally missed this thread, but posted something today that Suz said I should toddle over here and post here as well.  Now I see why!
