Disney Capsule Wardrobe: Halloween Edition

It’s Halloween month!

I’ll admit, I’ve never been one for Halloween costumes – not the scary ones at least. In fact, the very first costume I remember picking out for myself was Pocahontas (comment below if that’s something you want to see lol) I always went for the Princess gowns and Elven dresses growing up. And a witch’s costume for me only meant one thing: Hogwarts robes.

So it comes as no surprise that I couldn’t really come up with a true Halloween Capsule Wardrobe for you. Not in the orange and black, skeletons and bats, spiderwebs and skulls sort of way at least. But in the Disneybounds sort of way instead.

What is Disneybounding?
If you’ve missed my last blogs and still don’t know what that means, it’s creating character looks by using elements like colors/placement of colors and accessories without actually wearing the character’s costume.

So if you’re the type of person who:

  1. Doesn’t want to wear a full costume for Halloween but wants to come as a Disney character,
  2. Wants to keep things both affordable and comfortable,
  3. Has a ton of Halloween parties coming up but doesn’t want to spend too much time planning/prepping for them

Read on.

Since the whole idea behind my Disney Capsule Wardrobe (DCW) series is using things you may already have in your own closet, these Disneybounds are very, very simple. There are a bunch of Disneybounds out there that are much more detailed and complicated (in fact I’ve done quite a few of them myself and will do more in the future *wink*), but that isn’t what we’re trying to accomplish here. This is more to show you how easy it is to put a Disneybound together from what you already own, and how to use those pieces for more than just one bound.

For my other DCW blogs, I would style 10 pieces to make 20 Disney outfits. But for this one, I did something a little different. I chose 5 core pieces that I thought I could use for several characters, and created 15 Disneybounds around them.

You will also come to find that most of the pieces I used to pair these with are used for more than just one bound.

Kicking this off with:

RED TEE

Just used a plain shirt with different bottoms for Moana, Lilo, and Pooh. This can always be stepped up a notch with accessories like the heart of Te Fiti for Moana or leaves in Lilo’s hair.

“The ocean is a friend of mine.

Lilo

“It’s fish! If I gave Pudge tuna, I’d be an abomination!”

 

Pooh

“I wonder how many wishes a star can give.”

YELLOW SKIRT

Carrying over the yellow skirt I used for Pooh for the next 3 bounds. My favorites are Snow White and Mulan, because all I really did was change up the accessories and add a jacket.

“Come on, perk up. Won’t you smile for me?”

 

Mulan

“You said you trust Ping. Why is Mulan any different?”

 

Tiana

“Im gonna do my best to take my place in the sun.

 

BLUE OVERALL DRESS

For this next set, accessories and hairstyles are key. Also, this is probably my 20th Belle Disneybound to date, but I love how easy it is to Disneybound your favorite characters in different ways.

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

 

Cinderella

“Be kind, have courage and always believe in a little magic.”

 

Belle

“Well, some people use their imagination.”

 

WHITE TOP

Carrying over both white tops from the previous set this time to do Marie, Mary Poppins, and Esmeralda. If there’s anything this DCW blog has taught me, it’s that white tops are the easiest to use for bounds.

Marie

“Because I’m a lady. That’s why.”

 

Mary Poppins

“First of all, I would like to make one thing clear: I never explain anything.”

 

Esmeralda

Are you always this charming, or am I just lucky?”

 

BLACK TUBE TOP

I love that Ariel and Aurora both wear the black tube top over a blouse and skirt combo. They’re so similar yet to different! And didn’t I tell you? White tops are the best – it makes another appearance here.

Aurora

“Why we’ve met before… Once upon a dream.”

 

Ariel

“Flounder, don’t be such a guppy.”

 

Minnie

“This is the kind of day that puts a smile on everyone’s face!”

 

Ending it with a classic.

That’s 15 bounds! And I hope it helps you guys find a few ideas for the season.

So open that closet, and see what you’ve got. Because you can do magic, believe it or not!  Who needs a fairy godmother when you’ve got, well… you.

all you’ve got to do is want something and then let yourself have it.”
