Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party kicked off in Florida this week – and we are so jealous not to be there this year! The Simon Says crew were lucky enough to attend the best Halloween party in the world – ever, last year and we really recommend this special annual event.
Between September 11th and November 2nd on selected nights the Magic Kingdom opens until Midnight for a Halloween spectacular featuring the fabulous ‘Boo-To-You’ parade with a host of Disney characters in themed costumes. The Disney film villains also make a special appearance in a musical showcase, along with a Halloween inspired fireworks display.
The best thing about this amazing event is that guests are encouraged to dress in Halloween Fancy Dress Costumes – and the vast majority of people do – making this one huuuge Halloween party, hosted by THE magic makers themselves! A great little extra is the trick-or-treat posts around the park – where free candy is dished out to everyone by the bucket load. If you are lucky enough to have tickets this year – have an amazing time – we know you will – and we wish we were there with you! xx
Straight in from our sexy fancy dress costumes collection is the super cute Leg Avenue Sweet Miss Mischief Costume. Today’s inspiration for all things fancy dress is ideal for a famous couples themed party or the popular animal/wild life theme for 2012. The bold red and white polka dot mini dress and matching ear headband is an unmistakable tribute to the queen of Disney, and Mickey Mouse‘s other half. Pair with the white cropped gloves and convince your partner to dress as the most famous Mouse in the world for an effective entrance to any event.
A US Teenager was refused entry to Disney’s Animal Kingdom this week as she was dressed in a Tinkerbell Costume. The 15 year old turned up to the park dressed as Disney’s signature fairy character and was seen posing for pictures with other guests. The security staff promptly provided clothes for her and her boyfriend (who was dressed as Peter Pan) to wear before re-admitting them to the theme park – as well as dozens of fast pass tickets enabling her to skip the queues! We think this is pretty sweet of Disney and typical of their unsurpassed customer service. April Spielman moaned that she was ‘heartbroken’ at having to cover up her costume that had taken her hours to make. Hmm, Disney’s website clearly states that costumes representing Disney characters are not allowed within their resorts and surely it’s just a matter of common sense? A big draw of the famous theme parks, especially for younger visitors, is the ability to meet, photograph and even dine with the Disney characters who mill around the parks all day. Of course the magic makers don’t want their customers confused with guests arriving in similar costumes!
Leg Avenue Snow Princess Costume: We have to confess to being a little obsessed with Disney, here at Simon Says Dress Up, and Snow White is definitely one of our favourite Princess characters. To celebrate the magical ‘Snow White’s Scary Adventures’ ride at the World Resort, which is closing this year (to make way for a new 2012 Seven Dwarves indoor roller coaster) we present our favourite Snow White costume at half the price. This particularly pretty ensemble includes a fitted mini dress with two-tone exaggerated puff sleeves, red satin bows, romantic ruffle and apple applique. The matching red hair band with oversized bow completes the delightful look.
Delightful Minnie Mouse inspired creation features polka dot mini dress with eyelet trim, satin bow accents and puff sleeves plus matching fascinator headpiece with Disney style ears and matching bow. An ideal choice for any Disney themed party for those divas wishing to stay stylish and fashionable. Find the über cute Leg Avenue Sweet Miss Mischief Costume in our sexy fancy dress collection.

The three piece ensemble includes off the shoulder top with ruche detail, coin trim and jewel applique, matching harem pants with built in panties and gold trim plus co-ordinating headband.
