Walt Disney World is one of my favourite places on the planet. If I could, I would be there every weekend. However, finances and distance prevent that, so I need to find other ways to feed my Disney passion from home. My newest Disney obsession is DisneyBounding.
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 have put together some Disney Bounding ideas and will be sharing them with you every Friday. To kick things off, I’m starting with one of my favourite Disney Princesses.
I combined the colours of Merida’s hair and dress with some Celtic jewelry and some gorgeous boots to bring in her Irish, horseback riding roots. Would you recognize this outfit as a Merida representation?
