Aloha my wonderful merfolk!
This week is Sleeping Beauty week, which means it would be incredibly rude of me not to dedicate one day to my favourite Disney villain ever; Maleficent!
When it comes to spending money on clothing, I’m always wary. I lust over really expensive alternative clothing but know at the same time I can create a wonderful wardrobe with very little money. I don’t buy myself clothing very often either. So, giving that I’m rather a scrooge when it comes to parting with my money over clothing, lets do a Maleficent Disneybound on a budget!
All items in this Disneybound will be under £20 each and found on Amazon.
Firstly, let’s have a look at the Mistress of all Evil!
Now, lets have a look at the Disneybound!
This plain black maxi dress is £7.41 for a size 12/14. This is another Amazon product that changes price depending on the size that you order. Next up is this dark purple cardigan which is only £4.30. Absolute bargain. A lot of the cardigans I found were bright purple and they didn’t really match the purple of Maleficents cape. The final basic element of the Disneybound are these lace up, stiletto boots. These are the most expensive part of the disneybound at £19.95 but I think they give a more witchy vibe to the Disneybound.
Jewellery is always a big thing when it comes to Disneybounding. It can mean the difference between people recognising the character or simply looking past you. I decided to go along the lines of the crow. Whenever I typed in crow for jewellery, more raven items came up. So we’ll just close our eyes and pretend they’re crows okay? The first crow is a choker and this costs £5.99. When searching for Maleficent jewellery on Amazon, there zilch however, I did find this brooch based on the Maleficent from the live action remake. This is priced at £8.04. The final item is some ‘crow’ earrings for £6.99.
Overall, this entire Disneybound costs approximately £52.68 (depending on the price Amazon charges you. Doesn’t include postage). Of course, Disneybounding is jus for fun and you don’t need to buy new items for every character you want to ‘bound as. Recycle and upcycle old items. Go to charity/thrift shops. Look on eBay/Depop/Vinted for cheap, second hand items of clothes.
All Disneybounding takes is some imagination and some fun!
