In my opinion, the most intriguing character in The Force Awakens is Maz Kanata. She is unique, intuitive and very mysterious. A look at her sense of style would leave most of us a little confused, but it is perfect for her. As a Disney bound, it was difficult.
What is Disney Bounding?
Disney Bounding is the act of dressing to represent a Disney character. It is not wearing costumes, but putting together an outfit that would be perceived as a regular outfit, but could also be identified as being reminiscent of a Disney character.
Disneyland and Walt Disney World both prohibit adults from entering the parks wearing costumes. This ensures that children do not confuse regular park goers with Disney characters. Disney Bounding began when a Disney enthusiast wanted to show her love of Disney characters, without breaking the dress code rules of the Disney Parks.
I really struggled to find something that was stylish enough that someone would actually wear, but still represent Maz Kanata. I found all of the pieces, but I’m still not 100% certain that I’ve captured Maz herself. What would you do differently to capture her style and spirit?
