Attention! What I am about to present to you may change the way that you visit Disneyland forever! Be prepared (yes, that is a Lion King reference).
Before my family took our trip to Disneyland, my mom introduced me to a concept called Disneybound. Trust me, if you look up Disneybound on Pinterest, you will find hundreds of ideas. But before you go and look at Pinterest, finish reading this blog post so you know what you are getting yourself into.
Disneybound is the basically where Disney and fashion collide. It is where you can dress in your own clothes to look like a Disney character. You can dress as whoever you would like and dress how you would like.
So…let me give you an idea of what we did on our trip to Disneyland!
So, this is what we wore when we went to California Adventures. Haley was Hades from Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mom and Dad were Sally and Lightning McQueen from Cars, and I was Kuzco from The Emperor’s New Groove. So I will use my outfit as an example and show you what Disneybound is about.
Here is Emperor Kuzco from The Emperor’s New Groove. Notice that he is wearing a red “dress”, black sandals, blue earrings, and a gold crown. Now go back to my picture and look at what I am wearing. A red jacket, black sandals, blue earrings, and a gold headband. I also threw in a gold llama necklace since Kuzco turns into a llama in the movie. I also put my hair in a fan bun so that it looked more like his crown in the movie.
See? Simple as that!
Now here are our Disneyland pictures.
So in Disneyland, mom was Lady from Lady and the Tramp, dad was Chewbacca from Star Wars, Haley was Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, and I was Snow White. So, we still had a lot of fun when we were dressed up! A cast member even “recognized” me as Snow White.
So how easy it is to Disneybound? Anyone can do it! All you need is a character who you like and you think would be fun to be. We picked characters who we like from the movies and who we thought would be easy.
Here are some other characters that I dressed up as for the sake of the blog.
Jessie from Toy Story 2
And Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. PS, I wore heels just for the picture. I don’t recommend going to Disneyland in heels.
This is my take on Ursula, from Little Mermaid.
We had a lot of fun trying out different outfits. If we had pieces we needed, we went shopping at thrift stores for them. Have you heard of Disneybound or have you tried it? I would love to hear about your experience!
