Vala - Jack Sparrow is sort of a villain. He's a bad boy. A drunk. He isn't evil like some are but he is sneaky and deceitful and greedy. In any case, I was just counting him among the characters in general that were at the TOTP. I know that after the 2008 TOTP, he was removed from appearing at DL as a regular character (for reasons that made no sense), but he was brought back for the TOTP in 2009, so that alone kind of gives him a 'villain' status! Of course, Jack is an endearing, amusing, appealing villain-type!!

I still wish that stupid Maleficent hadn't walked away while we were waiting in line for our Villain photo ops by IASW! Grrrr......

I don't know, maybe I just like my villains too evil.

I would have given body parts to at least see her. *sighs*

Anyway, on to some more pic spam.

The candy corn ears and some assorted Halloween pins from last year:











EDIT: Forgot one - Holiday Vinylmation Figure with tin.

Thanks so much for posting those, Vala (and for taking the time to photograph the items - I know it is not a quick process, as you have to find a good location to set them up and then you have to make sure the pictures come out clearly, then load them on the computer, then load them to Photobucket or wherever, and then post them here!)!!

I remember seeing that Halloween Vinylmation. I love the candy corn tin it comes in!! And those candy corn ears are so cute - much cuter than the pumpkin ears, I think!! I love the pins, too - I didn't realize they had separate pins for Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) - that's cool!

I remembered last minute this morning that I had promised, so I took the time. Took me long enough. I ended up using my drawing table... perfect morning light. Those are my attempts at drawing Winnie the Pooh in the background of the ears picture.

Yes, I like those ears better than the pumpkin ones too.

The Dia De Los Muertos pin was surprisingly hard to find last year. They always have exactly one pin dedicated to Dia De Los Muertos.

The pin with the cauldron with the bubbles and the one with the nephews aren't park pins, these we got at the "Disney Employee Center" in Burbank. Other collectors told me you can buy pins there even if you don't work for Disney, so I begged my friends if we could go there. Let's just say my credit card did not approve.

The three pins in the last row on the last pin picture are from a Mystery Set that Disneyshopping did.

Those scented ears are crazy! I hadn't heard of them yet either (I have not been keeping up with Mice Chat and I missed out on seeing those photos), but, you're right, iKristin - the possibilities for parlaying this 'scented ears' idea into Halloween OR Christmas merchandise are obvious. I bet that the merchandising folks are already brainstorming on the Halloween scented ears and the Christmas scented ears (which could involve peppermint, cinnamon, gingerbread, pine, etc.), trying to get the scents and the designs of the ears just right before they have them made and ready for sale in 6 months or so.

What an odd idea, the scented ears. To me, it would make little sense to scratch and sniff while you are at DLR. The only sense I could possibly see it making would be to scratch and sniff after you got home to remind you of the popcorn and ice cream smells of DLR. Or maybe you would give them to someone as a gift so they could 'smell' a little bit of Disneyland even if they don't go to the park. But I wouldn't want to scratch and sniff and wear them around the parks while I was there, when I could smell the real popcorn and ice cream, etc.

Hmmm...do I sense a set of Churro scented ears coming soon as well? That would make one crazy looking hat!!

I like the ice cream one but I can't see wearing a hat with a thing of popcorn sticking up in the middle. I would get it if it didn't have the popcorn bucket stuck to the top

LOL, I saw those ice cream and popcorn ears last trip and thought, "Man, they've got a Mickey ear design for EVERYTHING these days!" They're cute, but I can't help but think the Mickey bar ears would have looked much better with a "bite" taken out of one ear and a bit of ice cream dripping out, rather than two complete ears oozing excessive amounts of melted ice cream, which doesn't really make much sense because if there's no bite, how is the ice cream coming out? Haha, oh well...maybe I'm over thinking it.

Good observation about this year's holiday ears possibly being scented. That would definitely explain why the Character Warehouse is really trying to get rid of all the old Halloween and Christmas ears.

I like the way you overthink.

I don't like how there's an ice cream stick sticking up from one's HEAD. I mean....ew?

Molly! Just the person we need in this thread! You have a picture of that adorable pumpkin muffin with the Mickey pumpkin head stuck in the top of it, right? We need to see a picture of that - someone's picture, anybody's picture - in this thread! So far, we don't have it, and it is a vital part of Halloweentime at DLR!! If you have time at any point, could you post it here for us?

That was exactly my first thought!

"How long will it take them before they come up with Churro scented ears?"

Good grief, Charlie Brown! This thread slipped all the way to Page 4! Not Page 1. Not Page 2. Page 4!!! How did we let that happen? People have Halloweentime trips to plan and they need to see the wonderful photos in this thread!

So consider this a good ol' fashoned BUMP!

Courtesy bump for Sherry!

Anyone have more pictures? I know it's Eastertime, but that means October is only six months away!

Side note: Do you realize people going WDW have to make their dinner reservations NOW for October? That's one really nice thing about DLR -- you don't have to plan a whole year ahead to get into nice restaurants or events!
