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 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

Disneyland Paris Inaugural FANDAZE – Character Madness Exclusive package review

Hello Friends!

Thanks for joining me again to hear my thoughts on the inaugural Fandaze Party and the packages offered as part of it at Disneyland Paris.

In this review, I am going to do a full review of the Character Madness Exclusive Package and what was included in the cost.

The Character Madness Exclusive Package was advertised as

Can you imagine our excitement when we managed to secure one of those coveted 16 places? We were over the moon, as was the lovely lady who booked our package as she couldn’t quite believe we had managed to bag 3 of the places either!

When we asked we were told that the 16 packages were individuals, so our group would only have 13 more people in it to give us the maximum experience possible in our package … but more about that later.

Mark and I decided to allow the other member of our party to enjoy the Santa Fe room we booked as part of the package and we booked a room in the DLH separately on the buy 2 nights get 2 nights free offer which worked out a really good deal.

Checking in

We had a booking for a party of 3 staying at the Santa Fe as part of our package. Early on Saturday morning (pre 7am) one member of our party was able to check us all in and receive the packs for our Fandaze package.

Inside this pack were 3 tickets to collect our package from the dome and 3 tickets to collect our Fandaze photopass from any of the shop locations listed.

This was all very straightforward and hassle free for us.

Collecting our Package

While one member of our party checked in, the rest of us waited in queue early for the 8am opening of the dome to collect our package information. We arrived at just gone 7am and were the first in line, other guests started arriving around 7:20am and a queue formed behind us very quickly after that. The doors didn’t open until around 8:10am and we were then held in a queue inside for a further 15 minutes before we were seen as they were still not ready.

Once inside, only the lead name was required to show ID despite being told the entire party would need to be present. The initial desk we were sent to weren’t aware of our package, we were then sent to a second desk area where we collected our package.

Inside this package was a party map, our lanyard, pin and a card detailing our package meet and greet times and our weekend schedule.

The organisation of the collection of this information was OK, but realistically could have been done at check in at the hotels for people with packages. It wasn’t convenient to take time away from our park enjoyment, or in our case sleep enjoyment as we decided to go early, when all of the information they needed is already provided to check into the hotels.

So, to improve this process next year, I would highly recommend that stand alone tickets are collected from the dome. However, anyone that has spent the extra money on a package should have the convenience of being able to collect their pack at check in.

Fandaze Party Night

The queue system outside the park was good, as Package holders we were given priority entrance … sadly this was entirely pointless! See my previous blog for details.

This was the extent of perks for people with packages on the night aside from our exclusive meet and play that I will come on to shortly. We did not get fast passed any queues or allowed through first because we had packages despite anything that has been reported on social media. We waited in line like everyone else, the entire duration of the party.

Meet and play pre-farewell parade with Disney Fandaze VIP characters

This was at 1am and had a 30 minute time slot, we were so excited! 16 people meant we would have at least a couple of minutes each to get photos and group shots and actually have time to ‘play’ with the characters.

This is where we discovered that it was not 16 people. It was 16 groups, so our expectations of a cozy meet up was actually 37 people scrambling to take photos.

The characters were initially in couples having photos taken, Mark and I didn’t manage to get photos with all the pairs and I shouldn’t imagine all the group did. We did get a couple though.

As the meet was nearing the end they realised they needed to bring all the VIPs together to enable everyone to get a photo with them all. This should have been done from the start and any time left over once everyone had a group shot should have been allocated do individual and couple shots. I do hope that everyone managed to get a group shot like we did

This meet was poorly organised and could have been managed much better. Having said that, I got the shots I wanted and have them to treasure forever so It was a success for me, I just felt like I had to push my way through to get it.

This was the end of our package experience for the actual Fandaze Party, our remaining perks were scheduled for the next day.

Sunday 3rd June 2018

Character encounters with Mickey and Minnie

We had been allocated a 10:30am time slot for this meet, which was a bit of a struggle to get up for after a 3:30am bedtime! We met at the Disney jnr ride and were pleased to see it was a far smaller group this morning.

Once inside we were greeted by the happiest and most enthusiastic group of cast members and photopass photographers, it was amazing!!! We went through and had photos individually and then hung back while everyone else had there’s .. and then left. There was still 15mins left of the set & we were told we could have as many photos as we wanted! So we had group shots and couples and some funny shots and generally just had fun with the main mice!

This encounter was excellent, I really enjoyed it. It was definitely a highlight of the package.

Sunday Brunch with 8 VIPs in exclusive outfits.

Now we love a brunch, if our trip falls over a Sunday we will always do the brunch and have even been known to do a one night stop over for a theme we like. We usually spend the entire 3 hours allowed for brunch at our table to enable maximum engagement with the characters and a leisurely un-rushed meal.

When we saw that we only had a 2 hour allocation for brunch before our next meeting we had concerns as that really only left us 1 hour and 45 mins to get everything done.

Brunch for the event was in the California Grill. We were sat in wine room at the top, right next to the doors through to inventions. There were 4 tables in our room.

Fortunately we were a group of 3 so were allocated a table for 4. If you were a table for 2, you were paired up with strangers for your meal as there weren’t enough 2 person tables. This wouldn’t bother me, but other guests were voicing that it made them uncomfortable.

The brunch was for both exclusive and premium character madness packages. Everyone was seated at the same time, despite the fact that the exclusive packages had to leave before the end to get to their next appointment. Exclusive packages should have been priority seating to allow enough time to meet all the characters and eat enough food.

The food was not to the usual standard I expect at inventions brunch. It was being carried through from the normal restaurant and was at most warm when we got to it. The selection wasn’t as wide as the counter space was far smaller and in all was just a disappointment. It’s the first time I’ve come out of a brunch feeling like I hadn’t had enough to eat due to the lack of time and selection.

During the first 40 minutes we didn’t see a single character, after speaking to an ACC it turned out that they didn’t know that there were guests in the room we were in. This meant that we started to get them coming to us, sometimes in quick succession so we got some combination photos.

Sadly Mickey didn’t make it to us before we had to leave, so this was the best photo I could get of him.

Considering the amount we paid for our package, it shouldn’t have been like this. The characters should have been easily accessible to us all during the brunch, especially considering the limited time we had allocated to meet them all before our next appointment.

Private encounter with 2 special VIP characters

We ran over from inventions to studios for our next meet. We entered the room to be greeted by the same photo pass photographer and ACC group we had in the morning meet and that made it even better!! We had SO much fun!

The same as the morning meet, people were coming in, having photos and leaving, so we hung around until the end again to get lots and lots of amazing shots!!

This encounter was really amazing. Meeting Ortensia in her first ever park appearance and Oswald who has only been to DLP a handful of times was truly special. So thank you to Fandaze for giving us that privilege.

I loved everything that we got to do as part of our package and do think it was worth the money. There are things I would change and improvements that could have been made, but I will talk about that more in a future blog.

Would I do Fandaze again? Yes, I’m a heartbeat. Would I do the same package again? That very much depends on whether changes are made. If Characters Fandaze outfits remain the same and if the brunch isn’t extended then possibly not, but I’d have to look into it when the information is released.

My next blog will be my thoughts on how Disneyland Paris could improve Fandaze and what I would do differently.

Lots of Love

‪Hollywood Tower of Terror 10th Anniversary AP Event – Review

I’ve seen lots of negative posts about the event so thought I’d share my feelings on the night.

Positives

* The light show on the building was amazing, I understand that people were disappointed that it wasn’t a new projection, but from what I understand that one was only previously seen live at a press event, so was new for me. Yes, the tech was a bit dated, but for me, that added to the fact that we were celebrating something that’s been in the parks for ten years.

* The Goodie Bag. We were all given a printed tote bag, a beautiful leather key ring and a programme of the night which I thought was a lovely touch .

* My fellow attendees. Wow! What an amazing turnout of people. Pretty much everyone had made an effort to dress in theme. It was fabulous to see and everyone looked spectacular!

* The actors. Throughout the entire event there were actors walking around. It was sometimes tricky to tell the actors from guests as everyone had made such effort but they were really interactive and fun. All through the queue for the ride you had actors being really earie and creepy, then outside the actors were joining in the dance party and getting everyone going, it was an amazing addition to the fun of the night.

*Photo Location. I was so glad to see a photopass location for the night, a really cool backdrop and actors to pose with as well. This had a short queue for most of the evening. Our photos turned out really well as a fab memento of the event.

* Dance Party. This was a strange one, the music was perfectly fine, a broad range that would suit most people that wanted a dance, but the party was for such a small amount of people that when it kicked off everyone was either waiting to get the LE merch or on the rides. It was lovely to have music playing in the park as we walked around, just a shame it didn’t really work as a ‘dance party’. It may have been more effective if the party had gone on a bit later.

*Rides. I’ll be honest, I only rode ToT. We were able to walk through without queueing, the actors inside were AMAZING and the ride itself was fab as always. If I were a more ride orientated person then I’m sure I’d have taken the opportunity to ride crush a few times without the crazy daytime queues but, I’m not a ride person – so I didn’t 😂

Negatives

* The key debacle. The programme said that a limited edition item was available for sale in the gift shop once the projection finished. Seemed everyone decided to go get that immediately and the shop was MADNESS. It took well over a hour for them to get security in an sort out the mess, by which time there had been much shouting and fighting in the queue. What made matters worse was that we were limited to one per person on the night so you had to go buy them individually. Turns out though that they made more than people attending, so everyone could buy the key from the next day anyway 🙄 This part was incredibly poorly organised and disappointing.

*Food and Drink. The restaurant in Studio One was open for burgers and nuggets etc but that was all. It would have been nice to have had some pop up booths with special snacks/drinks for the night.

*Characters. This was the biggest disappointment for me. I expected to at least see bellhop Goofy at the event if not all the VIPs, but sadly there wasn’t a single character at the event. This was a shame.

Overall, I really enjoyed the event. I don’t think that €38 was too much to pay for it as I had an amazing experience. I have heard a lot of people complain about the price, but honestly, I am unsure what more they could have wanted than what I’ve mentioned above.

If circumstances allow then I will definitely be looking to attend the next AP event mentioned in the email following from this one and I encourage any AP holders to do the same!

Did you go? What did you think?

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?

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
