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?

A few of my favourite things … 2

Dedicated to DLP


Dedicated to DLP comes in 3 different formats, there is a blog , a You Tube channel and a Podcast all run by the lovely Steve, with a little help from his friends!

As well as all those resources? You can also find them on Twitter and Facebook as Dedicated to Disneyland Paris. These are the places where you can get involved with the blog/you tube and podcast and share your opinions.  

The blog is a wonderful resource for all DLP related news. Steve updates press releases, rumours, trip reports, reviews, pin releases and basically everything that you could wish for that is DLP related. If your aren’t already then you really should subscribe to this blog if you are a DLP fan! 


An offshoot of the blog is the Dedicated to DLP You Tube Channel. Here, Steve uploads weekly news update videos as well as occasional collaborations with other DLP you tubers. I know that Steve took some vlog footage on his Xmas trip to DLP so as well as the usual trip report updates, I think we will be getting some vlogging coming in the near future. 

Steve has a very positive demeanour, he is very personable and easy to watch so I really enjoy the You Tube element of Dedicated to DLP. He also takes a very honest approach to his reporting and will share rumours, but always makes it clear that they are not official in any way to avoid disappointment.

The final part of dedicated to DLP is the amazing podcast. This is how I found Steve and Mark and continues to be my favourite recorded podcast to listen to. Steve is joined by Mark (@fusemp on Twitter) for most of these podcasts which are a fun and lively chat about the latest DLP news, changes, rumours, updates and anything else DLP related.


If you want to know more about the podcast hosts, this About page is quite informative … 


The interaction between the hosts is amusing as they often disagree on topics. The podcast relies heavily on input from the social media followers too, Steve will often as for feedback/questions/suggestions for shows and they always credit the people who have contacted them. It’s lovely to have a podcast that is so involved in the DLP online community. 

All in all, if you haven’t had a chance to check out dedicated to DLP on any of its platforms, you are missing out. 

Go have a read/watch/listen and let me know what you think!

Lots of Love

2017

Hi!

I’ve not been about for a while, I know that last year I had intentions of blogging more and it didn’t happen .. I think I might have even said it the year before as well but life has always got in the way! 

2016 was a pretty shitty year for me in general. I started the year with Barry the Bloodclot in my leg, a potentially life threatening illness which fortunately has now cleared but wasn’t a fun time for anyone while he was with us. sadly towards the end of last year and at the start of this year, I lost some family members who were very dear to me. The past few months have been a dark time because frankly, I’m not someone that deals with death well. 

That combined with work issues and a business which spiralled out of my control for a while made for a pretty hectic year. 

The best thing to come out of 2016 was my wonderful relationship with my amazing Mark. I’m a very lucky girl and can’t wait to see what the future holds for us. 

Moving forward with the year ahead, I have lots of content ideas for my blog so I’m going to ressurect her from the ashes, blow off the dust and start sharing content again. 

 I am passionate about plus size fashion, Disney bounding and cosplay so I’m super excited to start sharing some of my latest finds, ideas on upcycling clothes into Disney fashion, how I outfit plan for trips, some of my fave custom made dress sellers and there may even be a sneaky little collaboration in the works! 

Let me know if you want to see more Disney inspired make up looks … I know I only shared a couple but I do have plenty of ideas for more if that’s something you might want to see? 

I will also have a big post on my Halloween soirée costume as becoming Ursula was a pretty spectacular achievement for me and I had the most incredible night. 

I also have some posts coming up on Disney DIYs, painting projects I’m working on, my ever growing Alice in Wonderland collection and lots more … 

So hopefully you’ll want to stick around and read some of them!

Lots of Love

Disneyland Paris Fatshion

I have mentioned previously that my trip to Disneyland Paris this year was one of the best and most inspiration trips of my life thus far. I genuinely had the most amazing time and got to hang out with some of the loveliest people while I was there – which was a huge bonus too!

Before I went, I spent hours online searching for the perfect outfits to wear in the park. I’d been warned that I would need comfortable footwear (advice I chose to ignore and regretted doing so – Disney feet are evil. Fact.) and that I should bring jeans (again, advice I ignored but I didn’t regret this choice!) and comfy clothing. Now, I’m not really a comfy clothing kind of girl. I understand that for many people clothes are just something that have to be worn, they choose not to put much thought into them and good for them if that’s their choice. This fat girl however, likes to look good and so clothes are a very important part of my life.

I already had some Disney park ears that I had either brought online or had brought for me as gifts (I really do have the best friends a girl could wish for) and decided that I would co-ordinate what I was going to wear with them.

I arrived quite late in the day to the park so didn’t have long to explore before dinner on the first day, this meant that I didn’t change out of my travelling clothes – so no ears were worn on the first day! I did however wear a gorgeous dress from Yours Clothing (sadly, no longer available) which is covered in teeny tiny multi-coloured hearts. Turns out this was the perfect choice as I wandered around the Alice in Wonderland maze and had my photo taken with the queen of hearts!

20140713-194755-71275091.jpg

20140713-194754-71274657.jpg
I knew that I was wearing red and black the next day and didn’t have ears to match that outfit, so on the way back to the hotel I brought myself some lush black and red sequinned Minnie ears so I was co-ordinated to the max!

20140713-194954-71394989.jpg
The dress that I wore was from ASOS Curve (sadly, no longer available either) and I teamed it with TU leggings and my red leopard print converse hi tops that I brought in Office – ok, I did take one pair of sensible shoes.

20140713-194952-71392439.jpg
I had such a fun day, met loads of characters and even bumped into the Tweedles which was A-MA-ZING! I kind of regret wearing this top as the shapelessness of it makes me look way more massive than I actually am, but I was comfortable all day and co-ordinated so I can’t complain too much.

20140713-194955-71395951.jpg
My outfits got progressively more ridiculous from this point. I was visiting the studios on the 3rd day and decided that was when I was going to smash out the Ursula Ears …. Can we just take a moment to admire how amazing they are ….

20140713-195338-71618082.jpg
*Sigh* So in love with these ears.

Now, obviously if you’re rocking out some villain ears you can’t be wearing a pretty floaty summer dress, you need to make some impact and judging by some of the strange looks I got walking around that day, I think that my pleather dress and studded boots combination did just that.

20140713-195532-71732660.jpg
The dress was from AX Paris at Simply Be (no longer available) the shrug is from Yours Clothing, the leggings are from TU, the boots are Joe Browns at Simply be and my bag is from Zatchels.

20140713-195532-71732028.jpg
This was by far my favourite day. Once again, that is controversial to say as I spent the majority of it in the studios and I know that not everyone likes them but I really enjoyed everything there. The stars in cars parade with the impromptu meet and greet afterwards was awesome – here I met Ariel, Elvis Stitch and I hula danced with Lilo … how blooming amazing is that?

20140713-195735-71855634.jpg
I loved the Animagique show, the live art section where you can join in and learn to draw characters, the storyboard of the development of Ursula, the toy story area and peering over the wall at the Ratatouille area being built!! SO much excitement!

Day Four brought my most ridiculous outfit of the trip with it, I had brought some leopard print Animal Kingdom ears online and decided to go all out leopard for my final whole day in the park. The dress is from Yours Clothing (no longer available) and is the love of my life. The fit and design of this dress is amazing, it makes me so happy I could burst. I teamed it with a black Tutu underskirt from Domino Dollhouse, Tu Leggings (do you get the feeling I only buy leggings from one place?) and my oxblood red studded boots from Simply Be.

20140713-195853-71933669.jpg
This is the day that I met the most adorable princess stalkers in the queue for tickets to meet a princess. Although I was disappointed that I met Ariel again, especially as Tiana was in the other room! I also watched the Spring Fever parade for the zillionth time in 3 days and danced and sang along with everyone in the sunshine.

20140713-200014-72014931.jpg

20140713-200015-72015452.jpg
My entire stay was magical, and made me a very happy girl. The Dreams show every night was an emotional and dramatic end to a day of wonder, happiness and excitement before traipsing off back to my hotel and collapsing into my big comfy bed!

One of the most surprisingly excellent aspects of my DLP experience was the food, I ate in the most incredible places and was taken by surprise by how amazing the dining is. I will do a separate post about this on it’s own though as I have waffled enough for now!

Have you been to DLP?

Did you love it as much as I did?

What did you wear?
