Spring Dapper Day 2018 at Disneyland - 2 Days of Pixar Dapper Bounding


So while Spring Dapper Day at Disneyland was on Sunday, Charlotte and I celebrated the entire weekend with two additional Pixar inspired Dapper Bounds! The best part is that we had planned these way before they announced Pixar Fest so it was meant to be!


Charlotte found this amazing lime green fabric filled and decorated with luxo lamps that she made into a dress for herself and a matching camp shirt for me! It made for a perfect 1950s inspired Pixar bound! Charlotte hand painted her parsol, made her ears and added a working mini luxo lamp on my straw fedora.


Our 1950s inspired Pixar bounds fit in perfectly with Lightning McQueen in Cars Land!


The next Pixar bound was Charlotte who made a custom dress to look like Andy's room from Toy Story. She hand painted the fabric and handmade all of the Toy Story characters on her dress. Her purse is the toy box. I was a Dapper Buzz Lightyear with a clear umbrella to look like Buzz's helmet and Charlotte created a custom band for my fedora to show off all of Buzz's buttons that are on his chest.


We had to pay a visit to Buzz and Woody and they loved our outfits! I love all the photos we took with them!



Perhaps my favorite photo with both Buzz and Woody is this random photo that looks like it was staged!


Over at Disneyland they had a lot of fun props to take photos with!


Such a fun couple of days with Charlotte and also thankful for all the love we both received on our outfits! Hope you enjoyed out photos from Spring Dapper Day Weekend 2018 at The Disneyland Resort!

Alaska Airlines gets ‘animated’ with newly themed plane featuring artwork from Disney•Pixar’s INCREDIBLES 2


Ahead of the highly-anticipated release of Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2 on June 15, Alaska Airlines unveiled a special-edition plane today, featuring moviegoers’ favorite family of “Supers.” The Incredibles 2-themed plane, Alaska’s first Disney•Pixar film livery, was unveiled to a crowd of more than 2,000 cheering students during Aviation Day at the airlines’ Seattle hangar. The Incredibles 2-themed plane, tail number N519AS, begins flying throughout Alaska’s route network Sunday.


SEATTLE — Ahead of the highly-anticipated release of DisneyPixar’s Incredibles 2 on June 15, Alaska Airlines unveiled a special-edition plane today, featuring moviegoers’ favorite family of “Supers.” The Incredibles 2-themed plane, Alaska’s first DisneyPixar film livery, was unveiled to a crowd of more than 2,000 cheering students during Aviation Day at the airlines’ Seattle hangar.

Watch the Incredibles 2-themed plane come to life at http://bit.ly/2juU1TU.

“This plane will delight guests of all ages from San Francisco to New York and beyond,” said Natalie Bowman, Alaska Airlines’ managing director of brand marketing and advertising. “Like all of us at Alaska Airlines, many of our guests have anxiously awaited Incredibles 2. We’re honored to take this incredible family to new heights and share the imagery with travelers across our expansive route network.”

Decked out in their Incredible super suits, the Parr family—Bob, Helen, Violet, Dash and baby Jack-Jack—spans the fuselage. Guests boarding the Incredibles 2plane will see a logo when they board. An image of the raccoon from the film, Jack-Jack’s nemesis, will delight guests seated over the wings.

“These characters are among the most celebrated characters in the Pixar family,” said Incredibles 2 producers Nicole Grindle and John Walker. “After waiting 14 years to see them on the big screen again, fans will love seeing them on their Alaska Airlines plane, too.”

The unique design is a collaboration between Disney•Pixar and Alaska Airlines. The Incredibles 2-themed 737-800, tail number N519AS, begins flying throughout Alaska’s route network Sunday. With a cruising speed of 530 mph and sporting larger-than-life images of the “Supers,” the plane will visit fans throughout the country via transcontinental routes and flights to Hawaii.
Disney fans can follow @AlaskaAir on Twitter and facebook.com/alaskaairlines to learn about promotional activities leading up to the June 15 release of Incredibles 2.

Alaska's Disneyland Resort-themed planes include the "Spirit of Disneyland II," launched in 2009; and the “Adventure of Disneyland Resort” Cars Land at Disney California Adventure plane, which made its debut in 2013.

About Incredibles 2
In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose super powers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.

Written and directed by Brad Bird (“Iron Giant,” “The Incredibles,” “Ratatouille”) and produced by John Walker (“The Incredibles,” “Tomorrowland”) and Nicole Grindle (“Sanjay’s Super Team” short, “Toy Story 3” associate producer), Disney•Pixar’s “Incredibles 2” busts into theaters on June 15, 2018.

Vehicle Review: 2018 Toyota Corolla SE - Dapper Day at Disneyland and Avengers: Infinity War World Premiere


It is time for another vehicle review and this time it is for the 2018 Toyota Corolla SE. This sporty vehicle was going to be my ride for the week of Dapper Day Weekend in Disneyland and my transportation to the Avengers: Infinity War World Premiere in Hollywood!

The stunning good looks of this car is what you will notice first. The headlamps are multi-LED projectors with LED accent lights. And the wheels are large 17-inch alloy wheels.


All of the seats are super comfortable and easily adjustable. There is also a huge amount of legroom for the rear passengers,


The cockpit is spacious with plenty of leg room. All of the instrumentation is easy to reach and to adjust if need be. The large 7-inch touchscreen is part of the SE Premium Package and brings SiriusXM and a navigation app.


For our first day of Dapper Bounding, we had to go to Cars Land and meet Lightning McQueen! Charlotte made a 1950s style dress for herself and a matching camp shirt for me in a fabric print only meant for a Pixar Bound. The lime green material is filled with luxo lamps, one of the iconic symbols of the Pixar Animation Studios. We choose to do a Pixar Bound since it was Pixar Fest at The Disneyland Resort with all sorts of fun Pixar related food and entertainment offerings! Pixar Fest lasts until September 3rd, 2018!

For those of you unfamiliar with Disney Bounding, it is just using color combinations and accessories to emulate a particular character. Cosplay on the other hand is trying to completely copy the characters costume. Dapper Day is a huge unofficial event that happens in the Spring and the Fall at Disneyland, Walt Disney World and Disneyland Paris. The idea was to create a feeling of the early days of Disneyland in the 1950s when people wore nicer clothing to the parks. Dapper Bounding is emulating Disney characters with a Dapper flair. Hope that all makes sense. I live for Dapper Day and cannot wait for the Fall Event!

Black Panther: The Women of Wakanda


THE WOMEN OF WAKANDA

The in-home release of Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is packed with bonus material including deleted scenes, outtakes and never-before-seen featurettes. The highly-celebrated story of a young African prince named T’Challa (played by Chadwick Boseman) has thrilled and inspired generations of moviegoers around the world, and dominated box office charts. Thankfully, the exhilarating adventure will be available Digitally in HD, 4K Ultra HD™ and Movies Anywhere on May 8 and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and On-Demand on May 15.

To celebrate the in-home launch of the mighty Marvel movie, we chat to the cast and crew about the women of Wakanda, which is the subject of one of the exclusive bonus features: The Warriors Within. Look no further if you want to get to know Wakanda’s women and the amazing actors who portray them…



LUPITA NYONG’O [NAKIA]
“I love the way Black Panther represents women. Each and every one of us [in the movie] is an individual. We all have our own sense of power and we hold our own space without being pitted against each other. I think that’s a very, very powerful message to send to children – both male and female.

“In Black Panther, we see women going about their business and supporting each other. They argue with each other and have different points of view, but they are not pitted against each other and I think that’s extremely important. In doing this, audiences can get a sense of the fabric of Wakanda as a nation, where we see women alongside men and we see how much more effective a society can be if they allow women to explore their full potential.

“Cinema has the potential to show us who we’ve been, who we are, and who we could be – and Wakanda is an example of who we could be. This is a nation that has been allowed to self-determine because it has avoided the interruption that colonialism was; that assault on a culture and the imposition of a new culture on another. It has figured out how to develop on its own terms. And with that development, it seems they have figured out how to allow their citizens to realize their fullest potential, which means that women can hold their power and not compromise or jeopardize the man’s power. In Wakanda, a woman can assume her own power – but she can also stand with and in support of the man at her side.

“We can see that with the character of Black Panther, who is this all-powerful, vibranium-wearing guy who has Okoye [played by Danai Gurira] by his side. He also has a confidant in my character, Nakia. She’s someone that he can listen to and consider on a level plain. I think that’s really cool to see. I love the way that you get to see it unapologetic and unexplained; it’s just the way it is in a country you’ve never visited before. I feel like this gives you a glimpse as to what is possible in the real world.”

STAR WARS' CHEWBACCA CHALLENGES FANS TO 'ROAR FOR CHANGE'


STAR WARS’ CHEWBACCA CHALLENGES FANS TO ‘ROAR FOR CHANGE’
Star Wars: Force for Change to Donate Up To $1 Million to Support UNICEF
Disney store Offers ‘Roar in Store’ Discount on all Star Wars Products to Celebrate Star Wars Day

LOS ANGELES (May 3, 2018) —Lucasfilm and Star Wars: Force for Change today announced Roar For Change, a global challenge in support of UNICEF. The initiative invites fans and families to share their own version of Chewbacca’s iconic roar. For each public post, like, or share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that includes #RoarForChange between May 3 - 25, 2018Star Wars: Force for Change U.S. will donate $1 to UNICEF USA, up to $1 million. Funds will be used to support UNICEF’s lifesaving work for children around the world.

“Every year, May 4th has seen fans across the globe become Forces for Change and rally around good causes,” says Paul Gainer, Head of Disney Consumer Products Commercialization. “This year, as part of the countdown to the launch of Solo: A Star Wars Story, we’re giving them a fun way to support UNICEF while celebrating Han’s legendary sidekick Chewbacca, and his iconic roar, which is almost as recognizable as the Wookiee warrior himself.”

Fans can share their best Chewbacca impersonation, don Hasbro’s Electronic Chewbacca mask, or create a Dubsmash using one of Chewbacca’s best-known roars from the Star Wars saga, which will be hosted on the app’s homepage for the duration of the campaign.

The initiative kicked off with a video featuring the cast of Solo: A Star Wars Story, revealing Chewbacca’s diva behavior on the set of the new movie, which hits theaters on May 25.

“Chewbacca may not always have the best temperament but beneath the gruff exterior is a heart of gold,” says director Ron Howard in the launch video. “That’s why he’s challenging you to Roar for Change.”

Fans and families attending Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite on May 3rd will also be invited to join the celebration during the park-wide exclusive event. Additionally, on May 4th, guests at the Disney store in San Francisco will have the chance to meet Chewbacca and roar alongside the legend himself, and from May 4 - 6, fans that roar and post on social media in Disney store locations nationwide using #RoarForChange will receive 10% off their Star Wars purchase.[1]

Partners from across the Star Wars galaxy have joined forces to celebrate the initiative. LEGO is taking to the streets of New York with the first-ever Brick Millennium Falcon pedicab to promote Roar for Change and give fans the chance to roar alongside Chewbacca himself in Bryant Park on May 4. Hasbro and Funko each met the challenge to Roar for Change and created celebratory videos to help unlock the donation to UNICEF.

Star Wars: Force for Change, a charitable initiative from Lucasfilm and Disney, harnesses the strength of Star Wars to empower and improve the lives of children around the world. Since 2014 when it was inspired by Star Wars fans, Star Wars: Force for Change has raised over $16 million to date for charitable causes around the world. 

Nearly one in four children worldwide are severely malnourished. UNICEF is working in 190 countries and territories to defend children’s rights and, among other issues, help address malnutrition. On behalf of Star Wars: Force for Change, funds unlocked through this campaign will help UNICEF to provide Ready-to-Use-Therapeutic Food packets to children suffering from malnutrition, helping them to have a chance at a brighter future.

“We are thrilled to team up with Star Wars: Force for Change and Chewbacca to help improve the lives of malnourished children around the world.  It’s incredible to see Star Wars fans rally around the spirit of Chewbacca and UNICEF’s lifesaving mission. Together, we can protect all that is good in a galaxy not so far away,” said Rajesh Anandan, Senior Vice President of UNICEF Ventures, UNICEF USA.
