DIY Costumes that Shined: Rocking #Disneyside at #Disney24

Thanks to Disneyland Parks for inviting me to cover #Disney24 — All opinions are my own. 


Last weekend kicked off the summer season at Disney Parks and I was thrilled to catch the scene at the Disneyland Resort. It was my second time attending #Disney24 — a special event where the parks stay open a full 24 hours. This is a big deal for fans, many of whom travel great distances to meet up at the park. Celebrities were on hand doing interviews and special food treats, activities, and photo ops were scattered throughout the parks throughout the day. But what made #Disney24 most special for us were the DIY Disney costumes. We were nothing short of delighted just seeing what people came up with!

This year fans were invited to “Rock your #DisneySide” at the event and dress up as their favorite Disney characters. So many fans rose to the occasion, showing off amazing, creative and elaborate costumes — many of which were handmade. The costumes were an homage to favorite films and characters alike.

We caught photos of some of the amazing creativity displayed by Disney fans in attendance and I even captured a short tutorial for @Disneyfluentials, on how this handsome Chimney Sweep made his signature sweeper. It would be a great project to try at home!

From hand-painted shoes to handmade Maleficent horns and a full-on Jack Skellington suit, when it comes to costumes, Disney fans are the best!

Special thanks to my daughters and their friend Clarissa who dressed up for the occasion, interviewed park reps and fans, and assisted on scouting photo ops. They also managed to stay awake in the parks for the full 24 hours and interview a resident Disneyland goat at Thunder Mountain Ranch, for whom #Disney24 is just another regular day at work.
