My sister is one of the biggest Disney nerds that I know. I'd noticed a few years ago when we went to DisneyWorld that she had some Disney inspired outfits that she wore. These weren't costumes, but normal clothes - perhaps in a particular character's color scheme - like a green skirt and purple top to be Ariel inspired. At the time, I didn't know there was a name for wearing Disney character inspired street clothes but now I do: this phenomenon is called DisneyBounding.
Once I learned this was a thing - a really, really cool thing, I told my four year old and HE agreed it was the coolest thing ever. Together we decided on three different DisneyBounding themes for our recent trip to Disney World and it was so much fun!
Mom's Inspiration Board:
Captain America Day
Our first DisneyBound day was as Captain America. The board I created above was my inspiration. Here is what it looked like when I actually did it with clothes I already had in my closet (except the ears - I got those from Sparkle Ears):
Captain America mouse ears: Sparkle Ears (you can request a custom order if she is out of stock)
White necklace: Stock necklace from craft store (can't remember brand)
Blue ruffle top: Old Navy
Red belt: Target
Jeans (not pictured): Old Navy
Shoes (not pictured): Ziera Women's Gummibear in red
See the tutorial for how we made a Captain America MagicBand here.
