What does it mean to DISNEYBOUND? DisneyBounding is a way to pay tribute to your favorite Disney movies and favorite character in regular clothes during visits to the Disney parks or elsewhere. A way to dress up without wearing a “costume”. If you visit a Disney Park, look around….you'll see guests DisneyBounding everywhere (mostly because adults aren't allowed to wear costumes inside the parks unless it's a Halloween party or special event that allows costumes inside a Disney theme park).
A few of our favorite Princess DisneyBound Outfits
Disney Fan homework assignment? If you haven't planned any Disneybound outfits…..this is your time. It's so much fun to pay homage to your favorites, and I promise, it's a LOT easier than you think. You can easily plan outfits around your favorite classic Disney character with items in your closet or inexpensively with pieces from your local thrift store. I have one blue dress that I've used over and over for different Disneybound outfits….so you definitely don't need to start from scratch each time! If you live far away from your favorite happy place, and theme parks visits are few and far between, this is such a fun way to bring a little pixie dust into your day to day life.
Belle Disneybound – Beauty and the Beast
For this Beauty and the Beast DisneyBound……we focused on the colors of Belle's dress in the famous ballroom scene. Bright yellow dresses were SUPER easy to find…..and that red rose headband for Lydia? Was the perfect final touch. I can't believe how long ago I put these adorable outfits together, these were one of our first Disneybound outfits ever.
This Moana DisneyBound look was another one of our firsts. We actually released these pictures BEFORE Moana came out…..and people could not figure out who we were. Can you see it? I'm pretty sure we all can NOW. Lydia dressed as the ocean, and I channeled Moana with a simple red top and light color bottoms.
This Snow White DisneyBound was one of my favorites. I found the perfect pieces for Lydia to wear…..I love how perfect the colors in her outfit are! The best part? She wore each item a million other times. For Snow White? You need a nice bright blue, yellow and pops of bright red. And my graphic t-shirt was the perfect fun way to compliment her outfit!
Our Frozen Disney Bound is the latest in our series….and one Lydia's current favorite things. Did you see the recent tutorial I posted to make her Elsa dress? It was way easier than you'd expect (thank you iron on decals). And all the pieces in my outfit? Separates I ordered from Amazon to make this Disneybound look as easy as can be!
My biggest tips for a great Disney Bound? The colors. If you can get the colors in your outfits to be accurate……everyone will know exactly who you are! Use your own personal style, there is no right or wrong way to do this. And I highly suggest following the amazing Disneybound community founded and run by blogger Leslie Kay (she even has a whole book sharing how she founded and developed this beloved community). It's a wonderful, inclusive and encouraging place for finding fun new friends as well as Disneybounding ideas!
Now, weigh in. Which Disney Princess should we DisneyBound next? Maybe a Fairy Godmother and Cinderella Disneybound? Or Little Mermaid?
