I’ve been trying to plan at least one Disney Bound for my trips to the theme park. It’s fun to dress as a Disney character without actually wearing a costume, and Disney World is the perfect background for Disney Bounding photos! I love that my friends are getting into it too. A group of us decided to do villains Disney Bounds for our last trip.
If you’re not familiar, Disney Bounding is a super fun way to show a little of your Disney passion without being over the top obvious about it. Basically, Disney Bounding is when you dress in the colors or style of a certain character, but you use your every day clothes instead of a costume. I’ve done a number of Disney bounds you can take a look at:
Out of all the villains I decided to do Cruella deVil because she has a fun look and I already had some pieces in my closet that would work. There are a couple of different ways you could do a Cruella outfit. Instead of doing a white sweater or long coat, I went with something a little more Florida-friendly.
Although technically the skirt I had was a white leopard print and not dalmatian print, I think it still does a good job at evoking the character. Mine is actually a LulaRoe skirt, and if you’re familiar with them you’ll know that you can’t usually find a specific pattern very easily. But I found this really cute white leopard print skirt on Amazon!
I paired this with a solid black top. You could use anything black you might have in your closet.
For an accent piece I used a long lace vest (or whatever you call this sort of style). I had red, which I think works because it’s the inside of Cruella’s coat, plus her accent colors, like gloves and shoes. You could also do this look with a white vest. Mine is lace but I couldn’t find anything super similar online. You can find some affordable red ones on Amazon though.
And that’s your basic outfit, so then it’s time for accessories! I wear flip flops when I’m walking around Disney, but if you really want to pull off the Cruella look you’ll want some red shoes. And Cruella has another signature piece you might not expect – she has teal earrings! I unfortunately can’t wear earrings, but if you do then try these.
How do you like my Cruella DeVil Disney Bound? Which villain would you choose?
