Darla- Finding Nemo DIY

Here is a fun DIY costume that is super easy to throw together (((last minute even))) and perfect for Halloween!

darlaIt’s Darla that scary girl who unintentionally kills FISH!  She is the first female Pixar villain and so underrated that we thought we would shine the spotlight on her this ghoulish season.

Everything you need for this costume can be found around the house.

Materials needed:

*purple shirt *blue, pink, and gold glitter *fabric glue *Elmer’s glue

*plaid skirt or denim shorts (we improvised and used denim shorts)

*print out of “Rock n Roll Girl” graphic on cardstock

*brown metallic eyeliner *gray or white pipe cleaner

*two pigtail holders * two bobby pins *knee high socks *plastic fish

*Ziploc bags *clear hair gel and water *scissors

First things first:

Rock-n-Roll-Girl-Darla-ShermanThe shirt:  Cut out the Rock n Roll Girl print following the black bold lines to keep the shape of the graphic.  Glue glitter with the Elmer’s glue onto the letters for that added sparkle.  Blue glitter on Rock and Roll, pink glitter on the letter n and Girl, and gold glitter on the star.  When this dries glue the graphic onto the shirt using the fabric glue.  Make sure to place a piece of cardboard inside the shirt to keep from gluing the fabric together.  Place a heavy book over the graphic to keep it flat while drying.

The fish in the bag:  Drop your plastic fishy into the Ziploc bag.  Fill a quarter of the bag with hair gel and top off with tap water.  Just a little over a quarter, not too much water because you will need to tie the bag shut.  The hair gel makes the water look under the sea bubbly.

The hair and makeup:  Darla hair is easy.  Make two pigtails and secure.  Darla is a young girl and she doesn’t wear makeup; use the metallic brown eyeliner to add freckles on your nose and just under the eyes.  She has lots of freckles!  Shape the pipe cleaner and position around the mouth like headgear.  Tuck the ends of the pipe cleaner behind ears and secure with bobby pins.

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!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Disney Bounding- Sadness

sadnesssmiles

Smile Pretties! It is Friday and I am feeling fabulous and wish you love and happiness for your weekend adventures!  If you are in the Orlando area you may want to find Adventure at Disney Springs for the Road to the Races tour where you can see Lightning McQueen and other Cars 3 stars.  This event is scheduled through Sunday.  Don’t worry if you are not able to attend you can still enjoy the event!!! I will go live on my Instagram this weekend while attending the event found on the Marketplace side.  If you are following me on Instagram  you will receive a notification when I go live and if you are not following me @forkandspoonley you really should hit that follow button.  I will try to do more live feeds from the parks and when we are out and about as much as I can.  If you would like more information about the Road to the Races tour you can find it here:  Cars3tour.  The tour is kicking off here in Orlando and making it’s way around the USA!

So, today I wanted to share with you a Disney Bounding look I put together for one of my favorite characters from Pixar’s movie INSIDE OUT.  There is just so much to love about her.   I just want to hug her and turn her blue into a new hue.  SADNESS!

So here I am with @JulietTheFirst as “Joy and Sadness” as we took over headquarters.  This was truly an emotional day.

sadness3

Disney Bounding is tons of fun and acquires a lot of attention from cast members, characters, and other guests.  Overall it adds to the magic of the day!  So to complete this look you will need a blue wig, large-black circle glasses, blue dress with Peter Pan collar, nude colored flats, and blue lace peek a boo socks.

You can find the wig and dress on Amazon.  To keep within the Disney Guidlines for dressing up in the park I chose to wear the dress vs the sweater and pants look that Sadness rocks so well.  Simply because the wig and glasses really made the look.

 

Do you Disney Bound?  Share your Dressed in Disney looks below!!!  I would love some new inspiration.  Also, if you would like to see me Disney Bound as a specific character around the parks post your suggestion in the comments.

Looking Chic on the Savanna

 

According to Vogue magazine, animal print is a powerful fashion trend this winter. Leopard, Cheetah, Zebra, Tiger, Spotted Hyena, Striped Hyena, African Wild Dog, Giraffe, and Monkey are fashion’s greatest inspiration this season.  As a Disney fanatic I couldn’t possibly think of any better way to show off the hottest fashion trend but with a magical pair of Animal Print Minnie Ears!!!
