Loungefly closes out a year of seriously awesome bags with a few different styles for both Lilo and Stitch and Beauty And The Beast that fall firmly into the “GIVE IT TO ME NOW” category.

The Stitch bags come in messenger, coin, crossbody, and tote bag styles, while the Beauty And The Beast design comes in a wallet and duffle bag style.

They also added new Marvel, Pokemon, and Hello Kitty bags, so there’s a lot of goodness to be found. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Paralympian Josh Sundquist lost his leg to cancer when he was a child, but it never stopped him from doing what he wanted to do, especially when it came to sports. Still, he says he used to feel “social discomfort” due to his disability, and one of the ways he battled that was coming up with fun Halloween costumes that really, really worked with his one leg.

We’ve featured him on the blog before, so you may have seen some of his costumes in years past. He started in 2010 with the unfortunate one-legged gingerbread man from Shrek and that gave way to awesome ideas like a flamingo, the leg lamp from A Christmas Story, and even a foosball man.

This year, he’s wearing gold as Lumiere the candelabra from Beauty and the Beast. We think it’s his best costume yet. Compare for yourself with the following images of his previous costumes… [click to continue…]

Cosplayer Casey Renee loves both Disney and the study of history, which is why she describes her Rococo Belle cosplay as “a dream project”. She writes:

Back in February I finished a dream project of mine. Rococo Belle is a historically accurate version of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. I narrowed the time period down to the 1750s in France and used popular silhouettes such as the boufant wig and the watteau train to construct this beast of a project. It took over 300 hours to make the 9 garments (including socks and shoes) complete with over 2000 beads and pearls. The entire garment weighs 22 pounds with 30 yards of fabric and a wig that Cogsworth (which I also constructed) sits upon.

She says the costume allows her to share her love for Disney and history with children who tend to follow her around.

I can see why! Check out more pics of the costume below. [click to continue…]
