1 Woman Made Custom Outfits For Her Family’s Disney Vacation — and They Blow T-Shirts Out of the Water

1 Woman Made Custom Outfits For Her Family’s Disney Vacation — and They Blow T-Shirts Out of the Water

Sheridan O’Hea, a 20-year-old fashion student from New Jersey, sure knows how to put her sewing talents to good use. In a now-viral Reddit thread, she shared a few photos of matching outfits she handcrafted for her family’s annual trip to Disney World, and holy sh*t are they good! Sheridan first became interested in fashion when her grandpa taught her to sew at 8 or 9 years old, and while she admits she didn’t do much of it outside of the classroom, she felt inspired thinking about her upcoming family vacation.

“By the end of July I realized that my Disney vacation was coming up soon and my mom was nagging me to get us matching T-shirts like we do every year,” Sheridan told POPSUGAR. “I decided that this year would be different. I didn’t want to be like any other family with obnoxious T-shirts. I wanted obnoxious outfits. Handmade obnoxious outfits.”

She swung by her local craft store to pick up some supplies, and she admits that she already had a few ideas in mind.

“I went to JOANN Fabric and went straight to the Disney section,” she said. “I picked out this fabric specifically because I loved the old movie poster design and I thought it was definitely one of the more eye-catching fabrics, which is exactly what I needed. I had a couple ideas of what to make for my family, but I knew that my boyfriend and brother would love their own button-down shirts.”

Sheridan wanted the outfits to come out perfectly. She dedicated all the time she wasn’t at work to her ambitious project for a solid week — and despite the time crunch, her effort paid off in spades. Judging by the photos, her family clearly loved her designs.

“I’m so thankful of all of the love I got from my family,” she said. “No way was I expecting such feedback for my designs. They are truly my biggest supporters. My mom has always begged me to make her something and I finally did. I was hesitant to make anything for anyone else because I was always so hard on myself about whether or not they would like or wear it.”

Scroll through to get a peek at her incredible matching outfits, and keep an eye out for Sheridan’s very own Etsy shop down the line.

Alicia Silverstone says she took home costumes from ‘Clueless’

Alicia Silverstone says she took home costumes from ‘Clueless’

As if Alicia Silverstone was going to let Cher Horowitz’s wardrobe go to waste.

Appearing on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” the 41-year-old actress revealed she took home costumes from 1995’s “Clueless,” while discussing her role as a ’70s housewife on Paramount Network’s freshman series “American Woman.”

 

“Judy Gelman is our costume designer and she is brilliant. I wear a dress that [model] Twiggy wore, which is very exciting,” Silverstone gushed. “Judy and I would look through the wardrobe, and I was like, ‘Can I have that one?’ And I took it home, and sure enough, there’s no way I can wear it in real life, and I did this on ‘Clueless,’ I took so many costumes home. But you know, the knee-highs with the Mary Jane in normal world doesn’t really work.”

Though Silverstone didn’t divulge which costumes she grabbed, Silverstone did learn a thing or two from fellow fashionista and “American Woman” co-producer, Kyle Richards, namely her gender.

“I went to my meeting with the producers and the director and the [show’s] creator, John Riggi,” she said. “And I’m sitting in the room going, where’s that guy, Kyle? I know I’m supposed to meet a producer named Kyle, and he’s a guy, right? Kyle’s a guy name, so that’s what I thought. And then I soon realized that Kyle was not a man, that Kyle was Kyle Richards, as she was talking.”

She continued, “I don’t know how it was revealed to me, but it became clear that she was the one.”

“American Woman” is inspired by the childhood of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star.

Over the rainbow: Costume contest a hit

Over the rainbow: Costume contest a hit

Sleepy commuters on their way to work Monday morning were treated to sights on Main Street sure to wake them up: a black-clad, green-faced Wicked Witch of the West, Glinda the Good Witch in shimmering pink, and Dorothy in her ruby red shoes carrying Toto in a basket.

They were headed toward Wilton Town Hall for a Wizard of Oz costume contest, part of a 10 a.m. showing of the classic 1939 movie.

One hundred twenty-five children and adults saw the film for free on the big screen of the Town Hall Theatre, many of them for the first time, as part of the Mont Vernon Daland Memorial Library’s summer reading program.

“When they opened the curtain to start the movie, it was magical!” said library Director Bonnie Angulas, texting from her seta in the theater.

The library paid for the movie showing with a surprise grant from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and the Amherst Label-Calvetti Family Fund.

“One day I opened the mailbox and there was $500,” said the library’s children’s program director JoAnn Kitchel, who was dressed as Good Witch Glinda.

Daland’s summer programs had already been scheduled, so the library rented the larger of the theater’s two screening rooms and had enough money left over to give the first 100 ticket holders free popcorn and a drink and to buy prizes for the costume contest winners.

The theater, which dates back to the late 19th century, is owned and managed by Dennis Markaverich. Manning the concession stand, he noted that he is rarely there so early in the morning.
