Another Disney post again and this week I want to talk about how I planned my Disney-bounds and where I bought different bits and pieces.
My first suggestion is to think about which characters you would like to bound as and then shop around/see what sort of items you already have that you can use and see which ones are most realistic. I really wanted to bound as my favourite princess but I couldn’t find anything suitable and didn’t want to just wear any old thing for the sake of it. Also look online there is loads of inspiration but I found it difficult to find ideas for winter bounds. In the end, I decided I wanted to bound just for the three full days that I’m in the parks and settled on Rapunzel, Minnie Mouse and Winnie-the-Pooh. This is what I came up with.
Jeans: Pennys- €8
Jumper: Pennys-€5 in the sales
You can’t see it in the photo but I’m also wearing pink runners from Pennys that I already had, I also bought a purple cardigan that I might bring with me just to throw over myself in the evenings, I brought that from Pennys as well for €16. I’ve ordered a sun necklace online off Aliexpress as well for 62 cents but it hasn’t arrived yet. I think I might try to attach a little pascal teddy I have to my jumper also.
My amazing ears are from Custom Handmade Disney Mickey Mouse Inspired Ears
I ordered two sets off of Tracey who is just so lovely to deal with and they came so quickly. I love them! If I’m ever lucky enough to go back to Disneyland again I will 100 percent be ordering from Tracey again, the ears are fantastic quality, reasonably priced and super comfortable to wear. I was stupid enough to snap one side of my Rapunzel ears but luckily they do still sit securely on my head I cannot wait to wear these ears to Disneyland!
I love this outfit!
The jeans are from a place in Cork called Vows which is actually a Wedding Shop but has a warehouse of old stock from the moderne (another Cork shop) so these cost me €10 and are very comfy and soft, The red top and cardigan are from Pennys it cost me €3.50 for the top and €16 for the cardigan.
Again you can’t see my shoes but I just bought a pair of red runners from Pennys for €13.
I made my own ears (Badly) and I’d say they cost me just over a fiver to make, no they aren’t amazing but I think they’re cute so I’m going to wear them anyways and hopefully I’ll get better at making them someday.
I didn’t actually buy much for this bound I already owned the top and the cardigan both from Pennys again, I’m planning on using the same shoes as the Winnie-the-Pooh bound. I also had the ears from a trip to the Disney Cafe in London a few years ago.
I bought the skirt of Aliexpress for €8 and then I decided to get it altered, it didn’t really need it but I just wanted it taken in slightly to fit better around my waist so I paid €15 for that, I also bought these chokers from the children’s section of Pennys for €3.50.
And that’s it, they are my Disney-Bounds for my upcoming trip, I am so excited so this blog will more than likely very Disney orientated over the next month or so but I’m enjoying it and I hope you are too.
Thank you so much for reading!
