Disneyland comes to Sherman Oaks with “That’s from Disneyland”

 

 

IMG_8669That’s from Disneyland is an amazing FREE pop exhibit by the Van Eaton Galleries open to the public featuring treasures and artifacts for all around the lands and hotel of Disneyland. The amazing memorabilia collection from Richard Kraft will be up for auction August 25 and 26, 2018. Yes, you can own a piece of Disneyland history for the right price, hope you’ve saved up your Disney Dollars. Of course even if you aren’t planning on purchasing anything you can still check out this amazing exhibit. Disclaimer you will have tons of photo opportunities so be prepared. I Disneybounded as a 50s Wendy Darling with a skirt I made and accessorized with a ballon pop corn bucket for a purse.

The Gallery is divided into lands just like Disneyland. Main Street U.S.A, Frontierland, Adventureland, Tomorrowland, New Orleans Square, and Fantasyland.

Mains Street, USA still has small town charm with old maps, window displays, and even a vehicle that once rode down the boulevard of the magic place.

Cruise on over to AdventureLands where you will find tropical shirts, Jungle Cruise Posters, and a singing Tiki Bird

 

Tame the west including some critters in Frontierland. canoes, posters, and some signs from Country Bear Playhouse can be seen.

 

 

Glide on over to New Orleans Square for some haunting and pirating. You’ll die over the photo ops there. Take some photos with the stretching portraits in the grave yards.

 

Blast off into Tomorowland with Rockets, People Mover, and fun memorabilia from the world of Tomorrow.

 

And if the future doesn’t look too bright, escape to Fanstasyland where elephants and ships Fly, the children of the world sing one song that means friendship, and everyone lives happily ever after.

 

And last but not least take some silly pictures with a sea creature before you head to check out the gift shop.

Vintage Minnie Disneybound

I recently bought the most darling Fascinator from Hat and mouse, it’s Vintage Minnie inspired. I thought it would go perfect with a Blue and white polka dot dress I bought years ago. It would make the most perfect bound. I paired it up with yellow heels. Note when wearing heels at Disney take some fast flats with you. I bought a pair at the Target. They are foldable ballet like slippers and are a lifesaver when wearing heels or breaking in new shoes. 

  
I spent my time Disneybounding in California Adventure. I went to the Mad T party. Which is a must to see. 

   

  

  

 

I even got to hangout with some new friends.  

 

I even got a picture with Mickey at the end of the night. 

  
It was a great day and I received so many compliments on my Minnie bound. Hope this inspires you to bound yourself or if not definitely check out the Mad T party. Have a magical day. Thanks for reading. 

Belle goes to Be Our Guest and France 

On my last day at Disney World I went Disney Bouding as Belle. I bounded as village Belle on my last trip. I wrote a blog post on that bound. This time I was going as ballroom Belle. I found a cute yellow dress at Forever 21 and gold flats at Steve Madden and a Belle bow I got at a craft fair. 

I was very happy I snagged a lunch reservation for Be Our Guest restaurant! I’ve eaten there once before for lunch and the food is delicious and fairly reasonably priced for the quantity.  The only bad thing, getting reservations is difficult, try getting them several months before you go. 

at the entrance to Be our guest

There are three dinning rooms to choose from  

the grand ballroom

  

the west wing
 

and the gallery room

I picked the West Wing this time. It’s small, but dark and mysterious. During the time there you can hear and see a lighting storm. 

The food was delicious I got the tuna salad and my mom got the quiche and French onion soup. Of course we also ordered the master cup cake, with the grey stuff. It’s delicious.
   
    

Try the grey stuff , it’s delicoius
 

leaving Be our Guest

Now to meet Gaston. Always try to line up 30 mins to 45 mins before Gaston comes out to insure you get a photo with him.  

  

  

Had a lovely time at the Magic Kingdom now on to EPCOT specifically France, home to Belle. In EPCOT they have Village Belle, which I love.  

   

Belle and Belle

After France I went to the UK and hung out with Alice  

 

She loved my dress and asked if I was going to a tea party? 

It was a fun day at Disney World and I miss it already. Have you ever Disneybounded before? And if you have or haven’t what character do you want to bound as next?  Thanks for reading! Have a magical day! 

Pinup style meets geek chic -Her Universe at Hot Topic

I am a proud geek. Love shows like Arrow, Daredevil, and Agent Carter. I grew up watching Batman the animated series and X Men the animated series too and let’s not forget all the great Comic Book movies in the last couple years. At the same time as well as being a geek I’m a girly girl too. I love dresses and heels and having my hair all curled, so you can only imagine my excitement when I heard about the new Marvel line by Her Universe at Hot Topic.

It has a great pinup style look to all the pieces and a retro glam vibe.

I rushed to the store the minute it came on sale. The online store is sadly sold out. I ended up getting the Loki dress, Captain America dress, and Black Widow jacket. The detail is amazing.

My favorite has to be the Loki dress. I love the detail of the head pieces around the edge. It’s very geeky, but subtle. You can dress it up with heels like I’ve done or down with flip flops and a denim jacket. As for dress sizing I’m usually a size 8 and found the medium in the Loki and Captain dress worked well. Unfortunately the Black Widow jacket I had to size up to a large since It was too tight to wear over a sweater. If I was wearing the jacket over a thinner top the medium would have worked. I didn’t get the other three pieces in the collection. The Thor sailor dress is darling though and so is the Tony Stark bomber jacket. The Black Widow dress is 60s mod chic, but not my style.

I highly recommend checking out the collection in stores and if you are a geeky gal or have a geeky gal in your life definitely get a piece or two from the collection. Thanks for reading and have a Geektasic day!
