- John and I have discovered Veronica Mars on Amazon Prime, and it is glorious. If you haven't seen the show, Veronica is kind of like Buffy, if Buffy were a P.I. and didn't have to slay anyone. Only cooler than that. Also, I am very bad at describing shows.
- We met up with some readers from Australia last week at Downtown Disney, where I spotted this adorable Olaf candy apple:
I would make a joke about a warm hug in my mouth, but, ew.
Speaking of which: I also finally - FINALLY - saw Frozen, and I loved it and need to see it a few more times immediately. I'm not sure it topped Tangled, though - even if the visuals were prettier - so I think I need both on Blu-Ray to compare. You know, for SCIENCE.
- One more for my fellow Dizgeeks: Some of the best store displays at Downtown Disney are in Tren-D, and I spotted a funny new addition way up high:
No, not the creepy witch hands - the title of one of those books. See it? :D I still can't quite decipher the blue book, though. "Conju?" Think someone started to write "conjuring" but stopped midway for a lunch break?
- Another fun find, this time at Target: I think it's an Easter basket?
- Oh! Semi-big news - for me, at least: Some of our new friends from MegaCon convinced John and me to try our first Disney Bounding tomorrow! (And by "convinced" I mean "invited.")
Disney Bounding is a form of closet cosplay (or "closet play") that folks wear to the parks; you use regular everyday clothes to make a subtle version of a character costume. It was popularized by the blog Disney Bound, and has really taken off in California - plus we're seeing more of it here in Orlando.
Of course, most 'bounding is so subtle you wouldn't recognize it until compared side-by-side with the character - but coming from a cosplay frame of mind, I had to struggle with the "subtle" part. And given my history, I'm pretty sure you can guess my character:
It was a happy coincidence that the couple we're going with had already chosen to dress as a gender-swapped Alice & Mad Hatter. John will wear his Cheshire shirt & vest, so once again we will clash spectacularly and be extremely easy to spot if you're at Epcot tomorrow night. ;)
Oh! And tomorrow is Table Top Day, so we're going to learn to play Ticket To Ride there at the park. John and I are quite deficient in table top gaming friends IRL, so I'm psyched!
Happy Weekend, everyone!
