Disney Villains – The Horoscope Collection

Hi Friends,

I have been thinking for some time about making a collection of artwork based around a theme. Villains are obviously my favourite of all Disney characters and with it coming up to Halloween the majority of my inspiration ideas centred around villains.

After much deliberation and doodling I decided to do a series of Disney Villains as Horoscopes, not only did I want to depict them in the specific style of the Horoscope signs but I also wanted the ‘negative’ traits of that sign to be representative of the villain that I chose … quite the task I set myself!

The idea behind this Collection is that all of the designs will eventually be added together to create a fabric that will be used to make bespoke border skirts with the entire Horoscope represented and obviously 12 villainous favourites. I will be releasing a character per month in line with the star signs changing, which means that the final design will be August – September 2019 just in time for me to get the fabric made for next Halloween! (didn’t I plan that well)

So, who is the first design you my be asking?

September 23 – October 22 = Libra

Libra negative traits include; Impatient, indecisive, insensitive, complainer, manipulative, Co-dependent, self-indulgent, Gossipy, Fragile, Selfish and Sulky

To me, these traits perfectly represent Yzma

Yzma is shown with her arms in a scale like position to represent the Libra scales with Kronk’s good and bad conscious on each hand for balance.

I have made this design available on my Redbubble on a variety of items, I will shortly have prints available too.

This particular design works well as a standalone and during consultation a lot of non-Libyans asked for me to make it available on its own without the Horoscope so you can purchase Yzma without her Horoscope branding on products here and she looks like this

The next design will be released mid October, I really hope you like this idea and enjoy this series, I have put a lot of heart into this.

Thanks in advance for being supportive as always

With love

Plus size Disney – All my outfits from my last trip.

Hello Friends!

I am often asked about my outfits both when and I am in the parks and when I get back and post photos. So, I thought it might be a good idea to share my Disney trip wardrobe rundowns in a blog when I get back. (Sorry this one is excessively late)

We arrived on the Friday lunchtime and didn’t actually go into the parks until the evening event. The event we were attending was the Hollywood Tower of Terror 10th anniversary party which was specifically for Annual Passholders. When it was announced that we could attend in 1930s fancy dress, I couldn’t resist! I made myself an off the shoulder floor length navy sequin gown and Mark wore a dinner suit with a mickey bow tie and cummerbund. (A full review of the night is in an earlier blog post)

Saturday was my Pirates day! I knew that the Pirates and Princess season was starting this weekend and decided to support the pirates team with my outfit this day! I made this dress and ears with pirate themed fabric I purchased on eBay

With my pirate (close up of ears)

Easter Sunday is always my fave Disney day of the year, For as long as I can remember Easter Sunday brunch is Alice in Wonderland themed! This means all my fave characters and usually my Cheshire Cat makes an appearance too 😍

This year I decided to wear my Queen if Hearts themed dress from Be Ba Go the interaction from characters was amazing. I had the best day!

Finally on the Monday Mark and I decided to wear our Muppets outfits. My dress and Mark’s shirt were made by the lovely Kaz at Frockasaurus and I made the ears to match myself

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what I wore on my latest trip! What was your fave one?

I will be back tomorrow with part 2 of my Plus Size at DLP blog.

Thanks for Stopping by!

Etsy Store Update! 

As you probably know by now, I have an Etsy store which you can find here

I’ve started adding some more items to my store including custom Disney ears, hand painted shoes, cushion covers and scarves. 

The newest editions are the custom Disney ears and they’ve proved to be pretty popular so far which is super exciting! I have videos of both my Sleeping Beauty and Snow White bespoke ears available to view – just click the name you want to see!   

To order your own pair you just need to buy using the custom design listing on my Etsy (this secures your place in the queue of orders) then I will contact you to get to work on your design. 

I also have two options for painted shoes! For custom painted children’s shoes, select the children’s option. For adult custom painted shoes, select the adult option. Again, purchasing secures your place in the queue, once you have paid I will contact you with design ideas! 

   
I also have some super sparkly custom crystal shoes! I wore mine at DLP and they got a lot of attention as they are so glittery!! You can buy yours here – this price includes the shoes!! 

  
That’s a quick look around what’s available on my Etsy store! I hope you see something you like 

Lots of love

Brand Spotlight – Black Heart Creatives

I love jewellery. I especially love jewellery that can be customised to my exact needs or wants and Black Heart Creatives are a wonderful brand that can do just that!!

The company is the brainchild of the adorable Charlotte. I have had the pleasure of meeting Charlotte at an event we exhibited at together and can say that she is a total sweetheart.

The website has a large collection of designs available to buy ‘off the shelf’ and the collections change fairly regularly. My favourites at the moment are

The most amazing thing about BHC for me though is the wonderful bespoke service that Charlotte offers. The website has a gallery of bespoke designs here. If there is something you want made, you just have to drop an email to Charlotte via the website and she’ll work with you to create the item of your dreams!!

I’ve had a few items made myself and plan on having a lot more in the future! My latest necklace is this stunning design which I think I’m going to be wearing A LOT!
