harajuku fashion meets disneyland, magic ensues.
is anyone still looking for a halloween costume? well, if money is no object why don’t you pop over to tokyo disneyland and see if you can borrow one of these wonders for halloween? i was pretty impressed by the costumes in the parades there – they were just that extra bit crazy in the best way!
can’t pick a favorite disney princess? why not dress up as an entire ‘land’? top left: main street & fantasyland, tomorrow land, toon town and frontier land.
we visited tokyo disneyland in just. late june. but this is an easter parade. just go with it… there’s harlequin checked tights!!
and there was buzz lightyear girls!! by the way these photos are from two separate parades. things were crazy, but not THAT crazy. it wasn’t easter meets toy story or something. one was a celebration of disney, one was a celebration of easter.
if anyone knows how i can get to be a costumer at tokyo disneland.. call me! dream job, right?
in amongst all the shopping and eating we found ourselves with a ‘spare’ day towards the end of our trip – and disneyland just a short train ride away. what to do? we went to disneyland of course!! we got rained on, we queued for ages, we walked our feet to the bone (no seriously, i got the worst mega-blister ever – i think i could see bone).
i was interested to compare tokyo disneyland to the original disneyland in california, and it was largely the same – but different. it was bizarro world disneyland, where just about everything has a slight twist (the haunted mansion takes on a whole new threatening tone when the voice over is in intelligible japanese)! one of the best ‘twists’ though was the ‘small world’ ride. the ride itself was the same, but the exterior and the ‘load in’ were different – might i go so far as to say… better? take a virtual tour through the queuing area and admire the mary blair-inspired murals that set the tone for ‘the happiest cruise’ that ever sailed…
