Bing Bong Header

 

Inside Out was one of the top kids movies of the year. Unlike Minions, which set box office records for animated movies, Inside Out was universally enjoyed by people of all ages. Everyone loved following the story of Riley and the five emotions that live inside her head controlling her: Anger, Fear, Disgust, Sadness, and Joy. However, there was one character who stole the show and his name is Bing Bong! Here's how to complete out your Inside Out group this year, with a do-it-yourself style Bing Bong costume!

Minnie-Mouse-Header.jpg

 

Minnie Mouse, lesser known as Minerva Mouse, has been on the Disney scene since 1928. Walt Disney and Ub lwerks needed a replacement for Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and their new star Mickey Mouse wasn’t enough to fill that void all by himself, so it was determined he needed a love interest. It is never clear whether Mickey and Minnie are dating, married, or if he is just trying to win her affection, but their relationship changed throughout the decades. Her role opposite Mickey has also wavered from an independent woman, to a damsel in distress, and back to a stronger female character in later years as she became increasingly popular.

 

Early on, Minnie was designed like a typical 1920s fashionista. She had her flapper dress, patched knickers, black stockings, and her over-sized heels. We can’t forget her iconic bowler hat with the flower! Minnie doesn’t quite look like that today, and she has had an assortment of physical changes to accompany the changing styles. In fact, since Minnie has been drawn in comics, appears in animated shorts, television shows, and so much more, she has been estimated to have over a hundred outfits! That’s every girl’s dream! You can see the most major changes below, in our style evolution infographic of Miss Minnie Mouse!

Kylo Ren Header

 

We are just a few months away from the highly anticipated release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There was initially some skepticism amongst Star Wars fans when news broke that LucasFilm and the entirety of the Star Wars universe was sold to the Walt Disney Company. How would the notoriously kid-friendly company handle the more mature subject matter (ignoring the Ewoks) of Star Wars? Would they dilute the franchise and create a tame, new, PG-leaning trilogy? It’s safe to say any doubts super fans may have had were laid to rest  in the last few months.

After the teaser trailers were released online and the behind the scenes featurette was shown at San Diego Comic Con, the fandom hype reached a fever pitch. No small part of that excitement is due to director J.J. Abrams' secrecy regarding the plot and many of the important characters. One of those key characters is Kylo Ren, who looks to be the main villain of the film. We are going to break down everything official we know so far about Ren. We will not be covering any of the rumors or spoilers, just information that has come directly from Disney, J.J. Abrams...
