Cosplay Corner: Disneybounding Rapunzel

You know how I said that I was done talking about the Disney trip? I LIED! No, honestly, I just forgot this was a post I wanted to do. And since it’s Halloween, it’s actually a very good day to do this one, where I break down the Rapunzel Disneybound I put together.


Rapunzel is my second favorite princess, after Cinderella. And I’m saving a Cinderella Disneybound for something special. (It involves mash ups…and other people. And the phrase Work!)

Rapunzel, however, can be on her own, or in combination with other people, so, here she is.

The decision to do Rapunzel came first, and then came the ears.

They came from an Etsy store called Cantina Traders, and I love them so much. They also got so many compliments, especially from cast members. (There’s a special point of pride for me when Cast Members compliment specific parts of my outfits.)


The tee shirt was another Etsy purchase, and the shorts came off of Amazon. (They are HUE brand. I’m a big fan of HUE, they have the best black tights, and I’ve found their leggings great too in the past. These shorts really worked out perfectly.)

I’m planning on wearing this one again while Juli, Dom and I are down there.

But I did do a fun Photopass shoot in this while we were leaving Animal Kingdom, so I thought I’d share those!


All Hallows

Sorry I’ve been away folks! It was kind of a crazy week/weekend! But I’m back now and I’m here to talk about Halloween.

I know that it’s only August, but you have to understand that Halloween is my favorite Holiday and making plans for it begins for me usually around November 5. (My birthday is November 2 and my father’s is November 4…it’s always a good week. That might be why I love Halloween).

Anyway, I thought I’d landed this year on exactly what I wanted to do. Thanks to a wonderful/awful/hilarious/ridiculous TV show that really deserves it’s own “Lies Musical Theatre Told Me” Post.

Let Me Be Your Star!

Because of Smash and my giant girl crush on Megan Hilty (or maybe just Ivy Lynne…) I was sure that I was going finally dress up as Marilyn Monroe for Halloween, something that I’d been saying I’d do for years but always backed off on…

I’ve always been an Audrey Hepburn/Grace Kelly girl in real life, but it’s fun for Halloween!

I have a few dresses that would be great, and a good friend of my mother’s is a wigmaster on Broadway, and hooked us up with his distributor so I’d be getting a really good Marilyn wig, not something cheap that we found at Party City (my mom has always insisted that we have the best costumes. She rocks that way.)

But then well…I mean I spent a week talking about it. This exists:

Seriously, this is a thing!

While I’d probably stay away from The Dark Knight Rises version and go with the classic 60’s Catwoman, it’s a good year for either of these costumes.

What’s a fangirl to do? This is hard for me!
