Plus Size Disney – All my outfits on my last trip

Hello Friends!

This is a little late but things have been crazy busy since I got back from my last DLP trip!

The last time I was at Disneyland Paris was for the Fandaze event so the clothes that I wore were mostly designed for the occasion!

The first night we went for a fabulous meal at Inventions restaurant in the Disneyland Hotel for our friend Gaëtane’s birthday. I wore a dress I had made myself …

This is a Princess vs Villains dress which I made from an old Primark duvet set! One single sized duvet cover made this entire dress which I was most impressed with!

I teamed it with a black cardigan from Yours clothing which is seasons old and a set of hand made Ariel vs Ursula crystal ears that I made myself.

I love this dress and can’t wait to wear it again on the cruise I have coming up!

The following day was Fandaze!!

For this momentous occasion I designed my own fabric and made myself a dress with it! My fabric had all my fave Saturday afternoons characters on it, you can see it up close in the photo below …

I do wish I had worn a belt with this dress on the night as it did look a bit shapeless as the design is so fussy, I did get lots of lovely compliments though and it was nice and cool in the heat.

I made myself matching crystal ears featuring the characters on my dress.

The following day we had further Fandaze events as part of our package and I had another bespoke dress to wear to this too! This time Mark had designed the fabric, sadly after making his shirt there wasn’t enough for me to have a full dress but this was the compromise

I really liked this dress and although I wish I’d added some detail to the skirt it is really flattering to wear and got me so many compliments on the day! I used the last bits of fabric to make myself matching ears!

The final day I went to visit my good friends Captain Hook and Mr Smee. I was wearing my Donald Duck dress, once again I made this for the trip!

I had purchased this amazing Daisy AP holder from Tokyo and wanted a Donald fabric dress to wear with it! I decided the fabric was a bit too fussy for an all over dress so made a bodice and border skirt dress. I should have made it a bit shorter though!

I also made matching ears to this too 😊

Which is your fave outfit from my trip?

Lots of Love

Plus Size Disney Wish List 

The availability of Plus Sized Disney clothing is pretty crappy in the UK. This means that I end up spending hours lusting over American sites which have extortionate shipping fees and then on top of that customs fees when the items finally arrive. That being said, it doesn’t stop me doing it and I thought I’d share some of my fave items online at the moment 

Starting with Torrid 


Jack Skellington Dress – Torrid 


Coco Kimono – Torrid


Mickey Raincoat – Torrid


Mickey Leggings – Torrid


Scar T Shirt – Torrid

We had some good news in the UK when EMP UK opened here. This is an app which brings clothing from American stores to the U.K. so we can get clothing from Torrid and Hot Topic without the shipping fees. The prices tend to be higher as a result but that’s to be expected. Unfortunately at the moment the plus size availability is limited so I have only included items that I enjoy which come in a size 26/28 and above – so would fit me! 


Lilo & Stitch Dress – EMP UK


Cinderella Dress – EMP UK


Aladdin Dress – EMP UK

Yours clothing usually have some Disney design Jammies available for the plus size market so that’s nice. Right now I’m loving this cute night dress


Minnie Nightie – Yours Clothing

Etsy has a plethora of amazing companies that make bespoke Disney designs, including t shirts, dresses, cosplays etc … 

I’ve included a few of my faves right now 


 Peter Pan Mermaid Tee – Etsy 


Figment Tee – Etsy


Cheshire Cat Skirt – Etsy

 

Hocus Pocus Tee – Etsy

This little lot would cost me a small fortune to buy … a girl can dream though can’t she?  😂

What are you eyeing up online at the moment?

Plus Size 25th Outfits – Part 2 

Carrying on with the theme of Disneybounds based on the merchandise released for the DLP 25th anniversary, I’ve taken a more casual approach to the blue and silver theme today! 

I hope you like what I’ve chosen! 


Silver bomber Jacket – Simply Be 

Cobalt Blue body Top – Simply Be 

Boyfriend Jeans – Simply Be 

Silver Iron on Star patches for Jeans – 99p each EBay

Silver Sequin Ears – available in Park. 

Sliver Sequin Converse – Schuh

This involves a bit of DIY ironing the patches on to the jeans but overall I think this would be an amazing casual park day look for the 25th anniversary! 

What do you think?

Disney Plus Size Wish List – USA edition 

Plus Size Disney clothing in the U.K. Is near impossible to find (unless you want Jammies – but who wants to wear Jammies in public?!) so I am addicted to window shopping the US sites. Forever hoping to catch the 50% off international shipping days!

I thought that you might like to see the items I am lusting after at the moment, let’s start with Torrid.


Minnie Mouse bikini top – Torrid 

Minnie Mouse bikini bottoms – Torrid 


Ariel Dress – Torrid 


Snow White Dress – Torrid 


Miss Piggy Tee – Torrid 


Wicked Sweater – Torrid 


💜 Ursula Dress 💜 – Torrid 


OUAT Regina Dress – Torrid 

Now let’s move on to Hot Topic … 


Lilo Dress – Hot Topic 


Baymax Vest Top – Hot Topic 


Belle Rose Dress – Hot Topic 


Cheshire Cat Dress – Hot Topic 


Villains dress – Hot Topic 


Storm Trooper Dress – Hot Topic 

I think that’s more than enough to give you an idea of what’s available!

Both websites offer 50% off international shipping occasionally, if you are signed up to their mailing list then you will be informed when that offer comes around. Please do be aware that you are likely to be hit with customs charges though – which can be just as much as the 50% you saved on shipping! 

What clothing collections are you loving that are available at the moment? 

Lots of Love
