My Disney.

Sorry some of the pictures are a little blurry but I was taking them as I went.

This is my Singing Ariel doll from the Disney Store bought in August 2013. She stands 16” tall and comes with two outfits (as you can see in the picture). As well as the outfits, she comes with purple and blue hair accessories, a jewelled purple hair brush and little figures of Sebastian and Flounder.

I love her as when you touch her left hand she sings parts of 'Part Of Your World'I was pleasantly surprised about this as the sound quality is actually really good. Every singing doll I had as a child sounded like they had recorded it off of a VHS of the film from across the room. But this is actually very good! She has brilliantly poseable hair (as weird as that sounds!) and the dress (which is the one she is wearing as she walks out of the ocean at the end of the film) is my favourite outfit of hers as she looks so stunning and grown up ^_^ 

There are a few things I don’t like about this dolls. She has the exact same face mould as the special edition Ariel (see earlier post) but with a little less paint. It’s wonderfully painted but it seems a little lazy since she cost nearly a 1/4 of the special edition doll. Having said that, the face is lovely, so I don’t really mind. Another thing is that she has very little articulation in her arms. She has joints at the shoulders so you can move them up and down as normal. Yet at the elbows you can only bend them in or out a little so you can’t really pose her in a normal position. 

All in all, she is really lovely doll and I’m really glad I decided to get her! Both outfits are lovely, the accessories are fun, and a little thing that I love is that she hasn’t got any shoes included (every doll has shoes even when they don’t wear them, like Rapunzel and Pocahontas) which is a lovely attention to detail. 

Our fish Harvey was treated to a new tank yesterday! These decorations obviously had to come too!

Some of my favourite Christmas decorations! (A bit late but ah well!)

These are all from Florida in the USA bought in 2012 , most fromThe Magic Kingdom. There is the most adorable Christmas shop there and we go in every time we are there! It’s an all-year-round deal so winner! We easily spent over $100 in there but it was totally worth it! Rapunzel and Jaq and Gus in the glass slipper were from a HUGE mall (I can’t remember the name :/) but the Disney Store there was amazing!

I wish I could hang them up somewhere all year round, they mean a lot to me……and also..Gremlin.

I’m sorry :(

Hey, I’m very sorry about the lack of posts. I’m going through a busy and stressful time at the moment and unfortunately I haven’t had the money to expand my collection much. 

So I’m going to do my best to get back in the flow!

Frozen!

Hey guys, I’m doing a little research here. I want to know what you thought of Frozen!

Did you think it was an ok Disney movie. Did you think it was the best thing Disney has ever made or did you rather dislike it? Let me know!!

I’ll post what I’m doing very soon :)

Thanks!

Yeesh it’s been ages since I’ve posted anything! And for that I am sorry. But I’ve had a lot to do and worry about, but a good way to get the grief out is to be creative. Making things is so relaxing to me and I was so excited to get going with these.
I love Disney silhouettes, they are so classy and beautiful and so I wanted to put them on bags!! These are just the test ones but I don’t think they’re too bad. Hand drawn, hand painting and Ariel’s lips will be fixed hah.
Ariel
Mickey
Tinkerbell
Alice Cooper (because I love him also)
I hope you like them!!

Loki <3

Ok so as I said before, it was my 23rd Birthday last Wednesday. As well as some beautiful jewellery, my boyfriend bought me a puppy!!! He is absolutley gorgeous but, as his name would suggest, he’s a little terror! 

He’s a two month old golden Cocker Spaniel, with a white belly :)

What disappointed you about Frozen? Awesome blog btw :)

Well thank you ^_^ I hope you still think so after this!

There were quite a few things that bothered me. For one, the character development was very weak, the ‘death of parents’ has been used too much lately and it was pretty much brushed over anyway. Anna is cute yes, Elsa is cold (ha), Olaf is unnecessary and Kristoff is…..well…I don’t remember.

  The story its self was not very interesting and there was no proper villain which is such a shame because I don’t know about you, but I think Disney create the best bad guys! And also, I didn’t see the connection Anna and Kristoff had. It happened so quickly and there seemed to be a lack of build up to it which sucks because a well as good villains, Disney create the greatest love stories.

The songs lacked heart to me and were very forgetful (all accept Let It Go, which is amazing I’ll admit). They sounded too ‘poppy’ and didn’t really expand the story. Olaf’s was the worst as I still really don’t understand the significance of summer to a snowman, it was too random.

 I did, however love the design of the film. It was absolutely stunning, the scenes, the characters, the costumes. Beautiful! I really love Elsa’s look post-transformation 

I was so disappointed and I kinda feel bad because everybody loves it, and I think it’s one of the weakest they’ve ever done. 

What generation gap?

These wonderful people are my Grandparents. It was my 23rd Birthday yesterday and they came to visit at our new house. As they were leaving, my Grandad noticed our Woody and Buzz toys in the living room and thought they were amazing….and then my Grandma couldn’t stop laughing. My Grandad is in his 80’s and my Grandma in her late 70’s. They are the most perfect example of never growing up.And thank Batman this runs in the family.image

These are my Deagostini dolls. They are from a collection of Disney magazines released in 2004. Every 2 weeks,a character specific issue and a 15 cm tall porcelain doll would be sent, but that is not how I came across them.

I go to The London Film and Comic Con every year, and there is always a stall that sells interesting or rare dolls, and there I saw Belle in her blue dress just peeking through a pile of Batman figures. After 2 hours of me telling myself I didn’t need them, I caved and bought Adam and Belle in the Blue dress. Belle came with no magazine but had a little cape (which is lost among our moving boxes). Adam also didn’t come with a magazine but he also didn’t come with the attachable Beast head which is a little disappointing. Belle in her ball gown and in her Enchanted Christmas dress were from eBay. Ain’t they beautiful? 

Frozen.

Wow. Frozen, I can’t even….. Definitely the most disappointing film this year. It’s made me sad :(

Happy Birthday Walt &lt;3 

Happy Birthday Walt <3 

My Beauty and the Beast dolls.

Belle is form The Disney Store in London’s Westfield shopping centre. The hair is a little long and I’m not sure about the little bun on top of her head. The dress is simple but a cute and simple take on the costume. The rest of her is very good however, she came with two other costumes as well as a minature Mrs Potts and Lumiar. The other dresses were her town dress and the green dress she wears in the library (this one is my favourite!) She had little golden heels as well, but as with most dolls in the history of dolls, they have gone missing. 

The Beast however is from a different set bought in Walt Disney World in what was still called MGM Studios. It was bought by my parents in the shop just next to where they perform the story on stage ^_^

He is a brilliant doll as he is the Beast but you can remove the torso and the legs and he becomes the handsome Adam! Both dolls are so detailed and it is obvious so much love and perfection went into making these dolls. It’s a real shame they don’t make them like this anymore! the Belle was a little funny looking in the set so to display them, I just swapped them round. She does however have a much more detailed dress, it looks just like a miniture version from the film. I will be putting that dress on my current Belle. 

I will show off Beast/Adam on another post as part of a Prince collection. Stay tuned!

So tonight, we went to watch Saving Mr Banks. I&#8217;m not going to lie, I had a little cry (oh rhyming!). I loved it and now a couple of hours after, I still can&#8217;t find fault with it. Here&#8217;s a short tale as to why. MILD SPOILER ALERT!!
When you&#8217;re little, everyone has a film they MUST watch every day or the world will surely end. My sister&#8217;s was The Wizard Of Oz, my partners was Gremlins. Mine was Mary Poppins. To me, the film really was practically prefect in every way. The songs are enchanting, the characters are engaging and I loved it so much Dick Van Dyke&#8217;s accent didn&#8217;t faze me&#8230;..too much. Julie Andrews is in my opinion, one of the best actress&#8217;s to have graced this earth, and her voice will set your senses and imagination alight. Heck, my nick name is Lucy Poppins! Also, on my 18th birthday, instead of doing the typical going out and getting blind drunk with my friends, my parents took me to see Mary Poppins live on stage in Manchester! It was really sweet actually. They gave me the plush doll of Mary Poppins, and in her bad was the dvd and five tickets to the performance. Example 32184903243 as to why my parents are amazing.
Seeing that this film was being made, I had my worries. Firstly, I wasn&#8217;t the biggest fan of Tom Hanks, though I can assure you that that opinion has been changed thanks to the recent release of Captain Philips. And the thought of him playing our precious Walt seemed unnatural. For this reason I didn&#8217;t look too much into the film, in-case I was severely disappointed. I knew I would love Emma Thompson though as I haven&#8217;t seen anything in which she wasn&#8217;t amazing. I have to say, I needn’t have worried. This film is so emotive and heart warming, it needs to be seen to be believed.
Seeing Travers being so protective over the story that was initially her life was strange at first (don&#8217;t tell me you didn&#8217;t think she was being a bitch in the beginning!) but you warm to her and release this is the world she has been living in for her whole life. Wanting to change what happened to her father and prove to herself that her he was a good man. The Kite scene was what got me. Seeing her tap her feet the way Mary does for Step in Time (sorry, it&#8217;s never Mary without Poppins) was just perfect. Seeing this was the proof she needed and her smile lighting up the whole room.  
Hanks was adorable as Walt! Not only was he the imaginative, child-like man we all see and hear about, he was the father, the boss and the son that made him into the man we love. Hanks nailed in quite frankly! He could honestly read me the phone book and I would be enthralled! Though I must say, seeing him being performed so well made me a little sad that I will never have the opportunity to meet my hero. 
This has got to be one of my top five favourite films of this year, it is a must see film. For me, a must see at least twice!!!
