I’m obsessed with Disney, but then again who isn’t? Disney is one of the most popular companies that exists right now and has one of the largest fanbases of all time. Obviously, their characters are some of the most iconic ever and at some point, everyone has wanted to be one. If you haven’t, well then, you’re just lying to yourself. So when I stumbled on DisneyBounding, it was as if my Disney dreams had come true and immediately, there were questions like “What the heck is DisneyBounding?”
To make it as simple as possible, DisneyBounding is dressing up like a Disney character but with normal clothes which are basically like a DIY costume. If you want a more in-depth answer on what DisneyBounding is, I refer you to a video by Youtuber, imSarahSnitch. If you’re interested in her, she produces a lot of Disney related content on her channel.
The video cleared up a lot of my questions about what DisneyBounding is, who can DisneyBound and why it’s so popular. DisneyBounding is literally for any Disney fan there is… no matter what age you are, I’m sure you have something in your closet you can use for it.
In my research on the parks, I found out that if you are over 14, Disney prohibits wearing costumes for obvious reasons which are why I believe DisneyBounding is so popular. It’s basically like wearing a costume without wearing a costume, you know? In the video, she also mentions a site called “disneybound’ which is a DisneyBounder’s dream.
The site uses Polyvore to design outfits inspired by characters to help the disneybounder. The theme for this week was Disney Channel Original Movies since there was a Memorial Day marathon. For example, one of most interesting ones was a Zenon DisneyBound from the movie Zenon: Girl Of the 21st Century. The site features a ton of different characters, modern and classic such as characters from Zootopia, Big Hero 6 and Frozen along with Pinocchio, Dumbo and The Jungle Book. You can check out the website for more.
Another aspect I find interesting about DisneyBounding is how open it can be. There are so many characters to choose from and an endless amount of clothing options. It could be done by just one person, a couple, a group of friends or even an entire family.
Personally, I believe that DisneyBounding is pretty cool and something I’d like to try at least once. What do you think about DisneyBounding? Would you give a try?
