A look at how I put together my Wall-E Disneybound:
If you know me, you know I can’t resist a good disneybound! So when my travel companion last month, Jenn from Fairest Run of All, was up for coordinating one I was all in. She threw out Wall-E and Eve as a possibility and I loved it and requested Wall-E because I cannot be trusted to wear white.
Surprisingly this was actually my first real “couple” or coordinated disneybound! I had done my Cruella DeVil disneybound with a few friends who all did villains but I’d never done one where we were two characters who typically go together or are from the same movie.
If you’re not familiar with what Disney Bounding is, you can read about it here. Some people go all out and some people keep it very simple. For me, a major concern when bounding for Disney World is comfort! For example, would boots have been a “better” look for Wall-E? Sure. Was I wearing clunky boots walking around the theme park in May? No thank you. For theme park bounding I like to keep it comfortable and light, since it’s usually hot.

Basics for a Wall-E Disneybound
You have a good bit of freedom when it comes to picking an outfit for Wall-E. He has a few different colors combined and given that he’s a robot and doesn’t actually have legs or wear pants or anything you can really choose which clothing items feature each color. I try to start with a color palette so I have an idea of what I’m working with. Wall-e’s main colors are a goldish yellow, browns and grays, and a little pop of red. He’s also got an interesting black and white stripe pattern on his arms.
Skirts or pants for a Wall-E disneybound
I already had a gold colored skirt that I figured would work perfectly for this (I used it for my Winnie the Pooh disneybound as well!), so I started there. Wall-e’s main body color was covered. You could easily do any sort of shorts, leggings, or pants too but I like skirts and I already had this one.
Top for a Wall-E disneybound
I really liked the black and white stripes so I wanted to incorporate that somehow – for me a good disneybound is all about the smaller details, and the stripes are much more distinctive than just doing an all gold or brown outfit. If I was doing some sort of disneybound in cooler weather I’d probably look at black and white striped sweaters since the stripes are on his arms, but that wasn’t happening in 90 degrees! I did look at some headbands as well before deciding to just do some sort of tank top of t-shirt.
I looked at a bunch of different styles of tops before finally deciding that just a basic tank top would probably work best with the skirt I had. But there were some cute t-shirts, crop tops, and tie-front shirts as well.
Finally I wanted another layer to make it a bit more interesting and add another color, but I was very aware of the heat. I’d purchased a very sheer black shrug/cardigan when I went on my cruise and wanted something light and cute to cover up a little but not be hot. So I hit Amazon again and while they didn’t make the exact one I already have in brown, I found a bunch of others and was very happy with the one I purchased.
A few accessories make all the difference, I always say! And the best ones came from Jenn, who purchased these adorable matching buttons for us to wear. They fit the characters perfectly since they each have that respective logo or symbol on them at some point in the film. She got the 3 inch buttons and I think that was the best choice since you can see them much better than smaller ones.
I’m a big fan of trying to use what you already own for disneybounding and I happened to have a belt that was the right color for this outfit. I also think a belt can really bring together a skirt and top so I was pleased that this all worked so well.
One other little touch was wearing a necklace with a leaf on it. I know the necklace is a bit hard to see from the photos but it’s pretty simple. Since Wall-E has that little plant for so much of the film it seemed like a good touch!
You don’t see them in most of these pictures since we could take masks off for photos while we were there, but we did have Wall-E and Eve face masks to wear as well. I actually made these myself using my Cricut machine. I’ve been having a lot of fun with it and thought it was a cute little extra we could throw in! I don’t know how much longer we’ll be wearing masks but maybe I’ll switch to shirts or headbands and eventually put them in my Etsy shop if there’s any interest…
Tips for the perfect Wall-E Disneybound
- Try to use what you have – a Disneybound doesn’t have to be a perfect replica, so if you have anything that’s gold/yellow, brown, or gray, pull it out of the closet and see what you can make work!
- It’s all about the details – the pins were really what makes these disneybounds recognizable and they were a cheap and fun addition.
- Watch the movie again or look at different photos – depending on the angle and the shot you can sometimes see other details. For example, in some photos from the front you can’t even see Wall-e’s black and white striped arms. I created that little collage for myself while I was working on this outfit.
