Welcome to yet another post about our Disneybound fashions during our recent trip to Disneyworld! If you haven’t seen any of our other days yet, you can check out the Princess edition, the Mermaid edition, the Wonderland edition, or even the Harry Potter edition… and the best part is that we still have even more to come.
Don’t know what Disneybounding is? Check out Kris’s definition from an earlier post here:
Well reader, Disneybound is a popular trend started by blogger Leslie Kay. It’s well known that, while children could dress up as any character they chose, adults are not allowed to enter Disney theme parks in costume. It’s understandable. What if you’re a cosplay master & your costume is so good that visitors mistake you for a Disney Cast Member (aka employee)? And then you do something rude, inappropriate or uncouth? That would reflect poorly on the park…and Disney is all about their image! Kay found a fun way to follow the rules but still get in the Disney spirit; she created outfits made from everyday clothes but were inspired by Disney characters. Instead of making Cinderella’s dress you just pull something pretty & blue out of your closet & go! It allows you to channel the spirit of your favourite princess/hero/villain/sidekick/etc while still dressed in something that is comfortable, flattering & in your style. It’s basically closet cosplay but Disney-fied!
Now, on to discussing the day we were Disneybounding as Frozen characters. Fittingly, this was the coldest day of our trip to Florida. Kris and I were excited to pull together our Elsa and Anna outfits for this day, and everything just fell into place perfectly when Justine figured out who her style’s Frozen spirit animal was.
People definitely looked at us in these outfits. Our colours were obvious, and my sparkly skirt a little over the top. Not everyone recognized Justine, but when they did, they thought it was hilarious.
KG as Elsa
I absolutely love channelling Elsa. She is just so much fun. She’s badass and, you know, magical! I had this “Let It Go” shirt made for my Halloween costume last October – I was Hipster Elsa, obvi. I am lucky that Justine is a seamstress, so she actually made this skirt for me out of some fabric that was given to me by a friend. I plan on working this skirt into my everyday wardrobe wherever I can. I finished this outfit off with some snowflake earrings and an Elsa hair bow (to go on the end of the necessary Elsa braid, obviously). Since it was a cold day I threw on some leggings underneath and a denim shirt overtop to keep warm. Despite the fact that I was dressed as Elsa, I must admit that the cold did, in fact, bother me.
Kris as Anna
Obviously I needed an Anna to my Elsa. Kris was more than happy to oblige as she loves playing crazy redheads! Luckily I owned this awesome sweater that is pretty much exactly the colour of Anna’s cape, which I was happy to lend to her for the day. She put the rest of the outfit together out of her closet, and I thought it was fabulously done. In the end, she was totally channelling Anna, but in her own style. And we are all super obsessed with our styles right now, as you may know if you are a regular follower on this blog.
Justine as Prince Hans
The moment that Justine realized she could be Prince Hans was pretty much the best. This outfit was largely borrowed from Kris and I, but also very much in her style. The dress is mine and shall now forever be known as my “Hans dress”. Kris provided the perfect white blazer, and many of the accessories were mine. Justine wore her own boots, which will now be known as her “Hans boots”, at least in my head.
These two goofballs posed for way too many hilarious pictures together. Among the poses was making a heart around their faces, and finishing eat other’s sandwiches.
We had such a blast traipsing around Hollywood Studios dressed as Frozen characters. Frozen-looking locations for photo shoots were few and far between at this park, but we managed to find a few good spots.
