Spooky Days are fun days at WDW

Spooky Days are coming to Walt Disney World this September!  Spooky Empire, the same company behind Orlando’s semi-annual horror conventions, has announced Spooky Days in the Parks as a two-day meet up event “for fans that have a ‘villainous’ side.”  This first time event will take place on September 22-23.  Come play in the parks dressed in your most frightful Disney Bound.

Need some inspiration?  You could check out Pinterest for some “spooky” ideas.  Or you can keep reading for visual inspiration from Kawaiian Pizza Apparel.

Kawaiian Pizza Apparel designs casual cosplay apparel for all your Disney Bounding needs.  This Etsy shop offers Disney inspired leggings, shirts, tank tops, dresses, skirts, and so much more for Disney fans of all ages.   All items are hand screened by two curious sisters with a big heart for Disney and style.

Pictured above is the Haunted Mansion Inspired Skater Dress, Kid’s Jack Skellington Nightmare Before Christmas Inspired Disneybound Shirt, and Maleficent Inspired Skater Dress.  Other designs are available and customized apparel is offered upon request.

Will we be at Spooky Days? YES!

What are we wearing?  Great question!  I am still conjuring up the perfect Disney Bound for my son and I.   My daughter selected a dress from Kawaiian Pizza Apparel’s Ready to Ship section.  She will Disney Bound as Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas.

 

Designed to mirror the intricate details of our favorite ragdoll.   This Disney Bound is brightly colored,  lightweight, and breathable; making it a great wear for the Florida heat.  Slip on a pair of running shorts or leggings and transform this Disney Bound into the perfect run costume.

Kawaiian Pizza Apparel  makes it so easy to Disney Bound in the parks.  Thank you to Alec Dale for sending us this beautiful Sally inspired dress.  I’m thinking I need to snag the Jack Skellington inspired shirt for my son.  OHHHH My Disney and a Zero dress for me!!!

Sleeping Beauty’s Regal Crown

dscn7736It all started “once upon a dream,” where Briar Rose first met her true love.  He was a man with no name that shared a loving gleam  too familiar to her heart.  Little did she know that he would be her hero and her happily ever after.  After falling under the sleeping curse that was so belligerently cast by the mistress of evil 16 years prior, she would only be awaken by true love’s kiss.  So the story goes, and her handsome prince breaks the spell.  The kingdom had finally defeated Maleficent’s  curse and to celebrate King Stefan and Queen Leah held a special coronation ball.  It was time to crown the Princess!  Queen Leah had waited for this moment for what seemed like eternity.  She kept Aurora’s crown behind a glass encasement.  The golden crown was gifted to Aurora at her christening by the Wire Princess so many years ago.

dscn7734The Wire Princess is from Canada, a faraway kingdom where magic is plentiful.  She intricately handcrafts whimsical crowns from silver or gold wire.  Aurora’s crown  is made of wire, golden like the sun intertwined with glass beads that sparkle and shimmer.  Designed with elegance and comfort; the crown sits securely upon the princesses head as light as a feather with just a few hair pins.

As the Monarch crowned Princess Aurora, Prince Phillip took her by the hand and announced their engagement and affirmed his undying affection.  They were to live happily ever after and reign in the heart of two kingdoms.

Laurel, The Wire Princess also handcrafts wands, flower crowns, and fairy ears.

View her portfolio on Etsy and Instagram.  Stay tuned for my future post featuring Laurel’s fairy ears!  Coming soon!

Lost in Neverland with Tootles- Halloween Costume Idea!

Second star to the right and straight on til morning. Before you know it you are in Neverland soaring above the clouds with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell and fighting pirates like that old codfish Captain Hook.  Oh, what fun imagination can be!  Halloween is a great time for families to dress up and take on a whole new character.  This is the time of year in which my children dress up in a different costume every weekend as they enjoy the season’s greatest festivities.  One of our themes this year was The Neverland Crew in which my son played the part as Tootles (Skunk) the Lostboy.

In the animated film: Peter Pan, Tootles wears a skunk costume.  Our version replicates the ensemble with denim overalls, a black shirt (with white felt along the belly and a white stripe along the back,) an adorable skunk tail, and a Davy Crockett style skunk cap.   The overalls and black shirt came straight out of my boy’s closet.  I purchased the white felt from a craft store.  Using fabric glue I glued a round patch for the belly and a stripe along the back.  The skunk tail is from Sweet 16 in Stitches and is made with felt and stuffed with a polyester filling for the perfect finished look.  It easily attaches to any material with a silver clip.  Also available from Sweet 16 in Stitches: fox tail, racoon tail, and a cow tail! Tails that are perfect for pretend play and the creation of a new Lostboy costume.  The skunk cap is made of acrylic and is very soft to the touch.   My son enjoyed wearing this cap at the parks, even in the sunny Florida weather.   It is absolutely prefect hat for outdoor activities and is compliments of Crooket Coon Caps.  Other styles: coon cap, fox cap, and a Alaskan wolf cap are available on their Etsy shop.  Complete this look with black freckles and a pinch of pixie dust!

Tootles may have lost his marbles, but he still has his adventurous charm and this costume represents it well.  Complete with skunk cap and tail this Lostboy is ready to jump in line for following the leader at the sound of Pan’s crow and so will yours!

 

Trekking through Africa in style

photopass_visiting_ak_7829551592_edited.jpgJambo, friends!  I am so excited to share the wildest Minnie ears this side of the safari by Faffybelle Creations.  Inspired by Africa’s most astounding creatures the giraffe and the cheetah.  Be fabulous in the sparkle reticulated giraffe pattern or fierce in the rainbow cheetah print.  No matter what you chose you will stand out from the crowd at Animal Kingdom.

Faffybelle Creations uses high quality fabric with the most unique print  that can’t be found anywhere else.  Ears are designed firm and lightweight and easily slide on to any hairstyle with a matching headband.  The giraffe inspired Minnie ears are one of the most popular sellers from this Etsy boutique.  They feature a miniature giraffe head at the center of a sparkly gold bow and are encrusted with a beaded trim.  The cheetah inspired Minnie ears are a new design and feature a rainbow cheetah print with a pastel pink bow attached to a hot pink headband.

Faffybelle’s Minnie ears are so eloquently crafted, as the designer pays attention to every detail.  I could not find a single flaw in these ears.  I consider them high end quality and when compared to that of ears purchased from the park; more for your money.  If you are looking for character inspired ears or holiday ears you can find them on Faffybelle Creations  Etsy storefront and listed on her Instagram.
