Happy Haunts!

Hi Friends!

The spookiest time of year is just around the corner! The smell of pumpkin spice is in the air and we are all digging out our snuggly jumpers and coats!

Halloween sees the release of lots of awesome accessory, clothing and homewear collections so I’m helping you guys out with a round up of some of my faves from this year!

Black Heart Creatives

It’s no secret that this is one of my favourite jewellery brands. This year Charlotte has truly outdone herself with her amazing Halloween collection! I had to stop myself from buying everything!!

Here are a few of my faves from the collection that dropped today

You can buy this collection here but be quick as I expect this will sell out very quickly!!

ASOS Curve

ASOS Curve release a few Halloween items each year, this year the pickings are slim at the moment but hopefully more will be released in the coming weeks!

So far you can buy the following

ASOS Curve items are available here and again, I don’t think they have unlimited stock so it may be worth looking as soon as you can!

Shop Disney UK

I love this time of year at Disney as the villains get their chance to shine! Shop Disney has plenty of Halloween Merch this year, I have picked just a few of my fave things

You can find all the shop Disney Halloween goodies here – my selection has only scraped the surface of what they have on sale l, go check it out for yourself!

EMP

A quick search for ‘Villains’ or ‘Halloween’ will find you some awesome bits on EMP although I’m not entirely sure it’s only limited to this time of year. I thought I’d include a few of my fave bits anyway!!

I hope you like the items that I have found for the spooky season!

What’s your fave Halloween find this year?

Lots of love

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

Disney Loungefly @ Zavvi

Hello Friends!!

Being a plus sized lady, I can’t often buy Disney clothing ☹️ This means that the easiest way for me to show my Disney side on a daily basis is via accessories, more specially bags.

I am an obsession Disney bag collector, I probably have over 50 Disney bags and the majority of my collection come from Loungefly.

Loungefly is a brand that, until recently, was only really stocked on Amazon (at extortionate prices) or in boutique shops that had imported from America (at extortionate prices).

I know that since Shop Disney launched in the U.K. they have some Loungefly bags available but Zavvi have launched their Loungefly collection in the past couple of weeks and have by far the biggest online collection at reasonable prices!

Here’s a selection of some of my fave designs!

Minnie Backpack

Seven Dwarves Pencil Case/makeup Bag

Mickey Crossbody Park Bag

Disney Villains Backpack

Mickey Backpack

Belle Embossed Handbag

Have you had a chance to look at the Loungefly collection? What are your favourite pieces?

Have a lovely day!

Cath Kidston X Snow White Collection – Sneak Peek!

A sneak peek of the AMAZING new Snow White collection by Cath Kidston has just dropped into my mailbox and all I can say is WOW!

You all know I’m a HUGE fan of all the collaborations that Cath Kidston have done with Disney. I own pretty much all of the Alice Collection (even as far as buying clothing items that didn’t go up to my size that I amended to suit!) which was, by far my favourite collaboration. However, the designs coming out for the original OG Princess Snow White are really something special!

I thought I’d share some of my faves from the items that I’ve seen so far.

The scattered blossom and singing birds collections are by far my favourite

There are also some lovely clothing items and pyjamas that caught my eye

The whole feel to the items that feature Snow is very simplistic and feminine staying true to Cath Kidston Style.

This bag is by far my favourite item of the collection and I may not be able to resist treating myself …

The collection drops onto the Cath Kidston website and in stores on Thursday the 20th September, be sure to be quick as the popular items can sell quite quickly!

Which items are your faves?

Who would you like to see a collection for next?

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 GaΓ«tane’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

A Plus Size Perspective – Disneyland Paris Resort. Part Three

Hellooo Friends!

Welcome back and thanks for sticking with me through this series! This is my final post at the moment, but as I’m sure you know there are a lot of changes ahead at Disneyland Paris so I’ll be updating you all as they happen!

Shows and Parades

As shows have been changing quite a lot at DLP recently, I thought it best to review them by venue/area instead of by show πŸ˜‚

Videopolis

This theatre has bench style seating and is very comfortable, I fit fine and really enjoy this theatre as a venue – not turnstiles either! πŸ˜‚ Wheelchair accessible with and without transfer, hearing induction loop. Venue is quite dark.

The Chapperal Theatre

Currently closed for refurbishment. Was bench style seating and although a bit chilly in the less warm months is a really comfy and nice theatre. Wheelchair accessible with and without transfer and has a hearing loop.

Animagique Theatre

Mickey and the Magician is currently residing in this theatre. The seating is snug but fine for me, the chairs have arm rests so make it a bit of a squeeze getting in and out. This theatre is wheelchair accessible with and without transfer and some shows have a sign language interpreter.

Studio Theatre

The new Marvel show will be in this theatre, I have not been inside since the refurbishment but If the seating is the same as before then the fit is very much the same as the Animagique theatre.

Production Courtyard

The Guardians Of the Galaxy dance off and the Stark expo will be held on this stage. The area is large and flat. Towards the back there are some benches which you would have limited view from and to the left there is a green/orange passholders area where you are able to watch the shows separately if you have a pas.

Stars on Parade

You are able to select your own viewing spot along the entire parade route, I would advise arriving at least an hour before the parade start time to get a front row view. You are able to sit on the floor along many parts of the route (this is more difficult on Main Street due to the busy route) it is definitely worth choosing your parade spot early for ease of access and is a great opportunity to rest weary feet! There is a sectioned off parade viewing area for green/orange passholders as well as for infinity Annual Passholders should They wish to use them.

** during other seasons the parade route is utilised for seasonal shows and parades. It is always worth getting a place early to avoid disappointment

Castle Stage

This season sees the return of the princess waltz to this stage. There are plenty of concrete stalls in this area as seating which you may still be able to see the stage from if other guests have remained seated and/or planned and not arrived last minute. If you so have a green/orange pass then you are able to use the cordoned off area. It is always worth arriving early for shows to get the best spot possible.

Merchandise and Clothing

I am sad to say that this is an area that for the plus sized community is a HUGE fail on Disneyland Paris’ part.

The largest size offered is a men’s xxl, this however comes up to the equivalent of around a standard XL in the U.K. and probably a standard Large in the US.

The ladies clothing comes up extremely small and I think this may be something to do with European sizing. A good friend of mine is a size 10 top and had to purchase a ladies Large at DLP for it to fit, that’s really not sending out a very positive message.

I long ago started buying custom Disney clothing and have recently started making my own from Fabrics that I have purchased online. If you would like more info on who I recommend for Disney clothes then please leave a comment and I will do a blog post about it.

General note …

I hate to have to add this as a warning but it has happened to me on every single trip I have been on to Disneyland Paris so I feel I owe it to my fellow Plus Size community to share it.

Unfortunately fat shaming from fellow guests is rife within the park. I have had photos taken of me without consent, filmed without consent, been shouted at, surrounded by groups of teenagers filming me and laughing, mocked in queue lines, stared at, laughed at and treated like a piece of shit. I would say, it is rarely British guests that do this, but on occasion it has been. Obviously this is a small minority of narrow minded guests, but I did feel I needed to address it as it has happen at least once on every trip.

Now, I do dress up for the parks, I always wear full makeup and Disney inspired clothing, so I can stand out and for that I guess I should expect it to a degree, but I do still find it hard.

An example of one of my many fabulous outfits

I have received nothing but positivity, love and respect from the cast members at Disneyland Paris. I cannot praise them enough for always being kind, friendly and polite. I just wish that magic rubbed off on some of the guests πŸ˜‚

That being said, it doesn’t stop me going to Disneyland Paris and it doesn’t stop me loving it there. I’m lucky to have the most supportive group of friends who always help to make me feel better if I’m impacted by fools on our trips 😊

I do hope that this series has helped you if you are planning a trip and are Plus sized. If you have any questions at all do not hesitate to ask me.

Thank you for your time

With Love

Alyssa xx
