Let's Get Gifting: The latest & greatest costumes are just in time for Christmas
How Time Flies!Can you believe it’s time for Christmas shopping again? This year has really flown by! With the immense volumes our parcel carriers are processing at the moment, it would be a great idea to get in early for your Christmas presents!
Speaking of time flying – the first Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, is celebrating its 20-year anniversary this month! Way to make us feel really old… The stories have become timeless classics, reaching across different generations of fans. And guess what? We’ve got costumes to suit all different types of Hogwarts aficionados! Whether you’re buying for a Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw, Gryffindor or Slytherin (or even a Death Eater!), you’ll find something to tickle their fancy in our webstore.
Moana is celebrating an anniversary as well, with the film turning five this month. With so much to enjoy, from the gorgeous beach location to Tamatoa the crab’s incredible David Bowie-esque song Shiny (which was written by none other than Hamilton creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda!), The Rock’s performance as Maui to the beauty of How Far I’ll Go, it’s well worth a revisit.
While we’re celebrating anniversaries, we must wish the amazing Wonder Woman a happy 80th anniversary! She has been a true feme-force since her DC Comic debut in 1941. We’re loving her latest incarnation with Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984 (and the gorgeous costume options it gave us!). Watch closely for the next instalment, which was greenlit within days of the release of the last movie.
If you’re buying a gift for a little princess, make sure you check out our Disney Ultimate Princess collection. Featuring the cutest little purses, wands, shoes, and tiaras, they’re the perfect addition to any princess’ wardrobe! With Beauty & the Beast turning 30, it’s the perfect opportunity to ‘bling it up’ and celebrate a Tale As Old As Time!
There are some great new releases to celebrate too! We’ve just seen the release of Marvel’s Eternals starring Angelina Jolie and Selma Hayek. It’s an epic tale about the Eternals, an alien race who have been hiding on Earth for thousands of years and have now come forward to save our planet from The Deviants. It has some pretty spectacular visual effects, a diverse cast, and the first openly gay movie superhero.
The newest adventure in the Spider-Man saga, No Way Home, is also about to drop. The trailer broke all records for views in the first 24 hours, and it looks goooood! Spidey is struggling, now that he is no longer anonymous and seeks out the help of Doctor Strange to help him to change the past, and of course, chaos ensues! It’s a great excuse to update your Spidey gear, with new Spiderman and Iron Spider costumes now available!
If you’re an incy wincey Spidey-fan, we’ve also got great new Spidey costumes for you, with the release of Spidey and His Amazing Friends on Disney+. It’s an adorable animated series teaching the littlies about how these young superheroes work together and save the day. To get in on the fun, we’ve got the cutest toddler costumes so your little one can be Spidey, Hulk, Black Panther, Miles Morales or Ghost Spider!
Disney also has a gorgeous new film coming soon – Encanto is an adorable tale of a non-magical girl in a family (& house!) full of magic and wonder. When the magic starts to fail, who must save the day but ‘not special’ Mirabel! Your little one can embrace the magic inside when she dresses up as non-magical Mirabel or Senorita Perfecta, Isabela! (link to Encanto).
We hope you’re all able to find the magic this November. As the world is starting to get back to normal, we want to thank everyone who has been patient during the last tumultuous 18 months. We’re glad we could add some fun and colour to your lockdown and we look forward to enjoying bigger events and celebrations in the years to come!
