Who said that dressing up in costumes is only for the young? Brazil-based mom, Solange Amorim, or Tia sol, has taken dress-up to another level. She enjoys attending local cosplay events and blowing everyone away with her amazing get-ups of various cartoon characters.
This creative mother knows how to dress exactly like the character she wants. Tia sol also crafts each eccentric ensemble herself using separate articles purchased online. She then pieces them together into amazingly accurate get-ups.
With a preference for cartoon cosplay, she cleverly chooses characters not often represented by younger costume enthusiasts.
She has dressed as Muriel from Courage The Cowardly Dog, Yubaba from Spirited Away, and the fairy godmother from Cinderella.
Even though her love of costumes is somewhat new, Tia sol hasn't missed a single costume gathering in her city. Before she started doing it herself, she used to accompany her daughter to the costume events. Before discovering her love for costumes, she was first dared by a friend to participate.
"A friend said that I wouldn't have the guts. I chose a character and had the costume made without saying another word. It was Tweety Bird's granny. I didn't know that I wouldn't be able to stop myself from going to the events!"
Tia hasn't just pulled off some of the best female characters. She has also dabbled in some of the costumes of male characters. Here are some more photos of her amazing unique get-ups.
