You’d be hard pressed to find a living person in the western world who hasn’t heard of Disney. The movies and theme parks have become an essential part of growing up for many boys and girls. How many little girls were fascinated by Disney princesses and dreamed (however delusional) about their prince charming and glass slippers? How many little boys longed to fly like Peter Pan, or even better, sail away like Captain Hook? If you’re like most kids, you probably spent a lot of time imagining you were a Disney character when you were small. Who says you have to give that up when you grow up? (ignore previous statement if currently under doctor’s orders) Dangerous psychological issues aside, Disney fancy dress is a fun way to recapture your youth, not to mention release the pressure of some of the adult responsibilities that your 6 year old self could have never imagined.
What’s the best Disney fancy dress for you?? Think back to your childhood self and what your favorites were then. If you were a Snow White fan, there’s no reason why you can’t live out your fantasy with an adult sized costume. Once bedecked in the raven wig and princess dress, you may find another, decidedly more adult fantasy comes to mind! If this is the case, racier versions of these costumes are available to add a little drama to your love life.
Speaking of adult fantasies, is there any reason why Buzz Lightyear couldn’t bump into Snow White some night? Who’s to say they wouldn’t somehow end up in the same bedroom in the same suburban house some night say…when the kids were asleep?? Just an idea…
What if your childhood fantasies were focused more on the villains?
Many people had secret affinities with the villains of classic Disney flicks and now that you’re an adult, well…it’s time to embrace your dark side. Cruella deVille is a popular choice for those women who secretly put a higher value on a fabulous fur coat and lipstick than a litter of pups. Don’t be ashamed…celebrate this side of yourself at your next fancydress party. Jack Sparrow is another popular anti-hero costume and in all honesty, it’s been the most popular costume recently for a reason. There are few women alive who don’t lust after this character and if you perfect your slur and swagger, she may start to think you’re Johnny Depp – particularly if she’s been drinking.
Being a grown-up has a lot to do with being mature enough to accept all the different aspects of yourself. Hiding the fact that you’ve always wanted to be Tinkerbell, whether your male or female, is only going to bite you in the end. Suppressing the desire to spend time in Disney Fancy Dress will only turn you into the kind of person who gets overly intense about ordering coffee or re-parks their car multiple times. You’ve been warned.
