In Which Jenn Saw Those Yellow Minnie Ears Coming

Hey, guys, I’m psychic! That’s right – I asked the universe for yellow ears and BAM! Two weeks later, Disney serves ’em up. Clearly I am a person of taste with my finger on the pulse of fashion trends. Disney Dandy powers, arise! Anyway, there’s a new pair of ears I want. Initially I was disappointed by the lack of sequins, but I’m really coming around on the velvet. Hmmm. Let’s see if I can pull this off again, shall we? What’ll be the next color trends to emerge from the hit-and-miss minds of Disney merchandising execs? Let’s do a trifecta...

In Which Jenn’s Disney Wardrobe Will Work Out Fine

I was all worked up about my Disney wardrobe for my upcoming trip – and it turns out the weather is going to be pretty Florida-y after all! Despite the extremely variable climate of Florida in January, it looks like it’s going to be in the high 70s and low 80s while I’m there (which could be interesting for my race costumes, but we’ll get to that tomorrow…). I have knee socks and extra layers, but I probably won’t need them. Instead: – I’m excited to debut my Oswald dress! (I didn’t wind up wearing at at Universal because it...

In Which Jenn May Have A Minor Minnie Ears Obsession

Sooooo I seem to have developed a Minnie Ears problem. It all started innocently enough. All I did was wander into Epcot’s Mouse Gears gift shop to pick up an ear hat for Pat’s niece. After some deliberation, I selected the pink version with Minnie Mouse in the patch, and had her name embroidered on the back. All according to plan. While I was waiting for the embroidery to finish, though, I was drawn by a siren’s song to the rack of ear headbands. This was still back in the day when Minnie ears were in their nascent stages, and I...

In Which Jenn Lets The People Dress Her For WDW

Well, I asked, and you answered: what should I wear? One Twitter poll later, I am proud to announce my 2019 WDW Marathon Weekend wardrobe! First, my race outfit for the marathon. I toyed with the idea of building a new one, but in the interest of saving money I decided to reuse last year’s Figment ensemble. I don’t think anything in this outfit is currently purchasable, unfortunately, but you could probably find the ears on eBay for those exorbitant eBay prices. The tank and pants were both from Target, C9 and JoyLab respectively. (I snapped those pants up...

In Which Jenn Earns Her Minnie Ears

Since I spent most of this WDW trip in a conference, I won’t be doing a traditional trip report, but I definitely still have a lot of stuff to tell you about that will be loosely collected under the July 2018 trip keyword. Read on!  I don’t usually put post-WDW trip haul posts – not because I don’t think they’re interesting, but rather because I rarely get enough to warrant the dedicated word count. I just don’t generally buy more than a souvenir at a time lest the percentage of my salary I give to Disney yearly dips from...

In Which Jenn Assembles Her Next WDW Trip Wardrobe

Hey, remember how I have turned into a WDW dandy and like to ramble on about all my Disney clothes and how Hot Topic is Disney mecca so goth kids step aside? Anyway, here’s my planned wardrobe for my holiday trip (which begins NEXT WEEK, guys! EEE!!!!). The red polka dot dress is something I picked up from Delia’s 6 or 7 years ago, when I, y’know, still shopped at Delia’s. It’s not technically Disney, of course, but I think it’s extremely evocative of Minnie Mouse. Paired with my sequined Minnie ears, it’s a Disneybounding slam dunk.  The Figment t-shirt is vintage...

In Which Jenn Gets By With A Little Help From Her WDW Friends

From the moment I laid eyes on it, I knew the limited edition Epcot Food & Wine Festival ears needed to be mine. Only one problem: I’m not going to the festival this year. No problem, though! Lately Disney’s been putting 95% of parks merchandise on the Shop Disney Parks app. There isn’t much that can’t be had through the app, and the initial blog post revealing the merch promised most of it would be available. So you can imagine my chagrin when I searched for the ears and saw this:    LAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME. Of course there’s always eBay and such,...
