Lol, don't worry about it. The more people know about Disneybounding, the more "costumes" we can see in the parks! Now, the reason why I put costumes in quotations is because you're right, they don't scream HEY LOOK I'M DRESSED UP AS A CHARACTER!! Disneybounders dress up with the knowledge that what they're wearing can kind of be construed as some sort of character. They take elements from a character and try to emulate that.

It's also possible to dress up as a land or attraction. For example, if I wanted to dress up as Walt Disney's Enchanted Tiki Room, I would probably wear something with birds and plants on it.

If you look at the DisneyBound tumblr, you'll see more examples of other interpretations. I started this thread for DISers who DisneyBound, and I'm hoping that it doesn't end up as a thread where people just paste pictures from that tumblr. As Astylla said, there really are no rules to it . Some people just choose more costumey elements than others!

Think of it more as a tribute to or in honor of than a costume. Her original Nemo shirt had tiny white sequins in stripes across her shirt and she wore her black belt over the shirt- so orange, white and black stripes. Unfortunately it was long sleeves and it turned very warm that day- luckily we had been checking the forecast so she had a backup- short sleeved orange shirt- not as Nemo-ish but she wore black shorts and a white tank, dolphin necklace and her sparkly sequiny blue shoes (to represent water). The idea isn't to make a costume, but to see what street clothes you have or could easily buy that you would still wear other times that would represent the character or movie. Maybe no one got the reference- maybe someone did while we were walking around- but it was still very fun knowing that you had this little secret and to see who gets it

We are the kind of family who loves spirit days at the schools, or dresses in support of the sports teams we go to- so this is just like that in a way...

Oh I am too, do what makes you happy, I guess some of the outfits I've seen I wouldn't assume were even modeled after a character.

Ok so that sounds like disneybounding, if I saw you dressed like that I would "get it" and say "she's Ursula". lol Cinderella, cute light blue skirt or dress with mouse jewelry. A cute brown dress with an apron and a broom applique.

Ok, I get it then. It was what I thought, I guess I'd just "kick it up a notch" and be more "costumey". LOL I do love the photos everyone has posted, there are some cute outfits being shared.

I agree, there are many outfit ideas on the disneybounding site that I would never guess even if I saw them in the park.

Some of the outfits I have planned are:
-red polka dot dress with yellow belt and black shoes
-yellow skirt with blue shirt and red headband
-some sort of blue and white outfit

I'm going to wear them on the same days that my DD3 wears her play dresses. If I'm going to go to the effort I want people to notice.

Pinup, where is that picture of Walt? Dana, I especially like the Jane outfit. The jaguar bracelet is a great touch.
The picture of Walt in Pinup's post is in front of the Walt Disney Theater on Disney Cruise Line.

The two shirts I ordered from ChicByAmber on Etsy arrived today!







Going to have to fix up the Tink one a bit, though, because the tule wings go right into my airpits, and the light green tule on the front at the top will drive me nuts. I might even take the wings off completely, to make the shirt a little more subtle.

I *may* have put together these outfits already.

I'm still looking for just the right blue dress to be Cinderella, Alice or Belle.

Very cute --- I love the Snow White outfit. I disneybounded as Alice in early march, and had a hard time finding a dress in the right shade of blue. I gave up and just got a blue dress (the shade was close) and called it a day.

I did it without thinking today. I only realized how villainous I looked when I was all ready!



OP, I love your mardi gras/Tiana and Naveen outfits.

Gals you look amazing!! I have thoroughly enjoyed looking at all of Disneybound's ideas on Pinterest. And I think the idea is genius! Make a fashion statement, imitate a character but with the intent on not looking costumey is the point. I see it as "this is not a blatant attempt but a street clothes interpretation of, say, Minnie or Tink." Can't wait for my next trip to get in on the action and will be sure to post!

This concept is so fun! I had NEVER heard of this term until the first post of this thread. We were people watching at Disneyland a few weeks ago, and an older teen girl walked by us. We did a double take as she was dressed in Snow White colors--bright yellow skinnies, layered navy tee and royal blue tank, red flats and red headband, and bright red lipstick. She looked adorable and was drawing many eyes after her. We didn't know the term, but knew right off she was paying homage to Snow White!
