Disney Days 2

Since I missed Movie Quote Monday this week, I had a hankering for some lovely Disney pictures.  And what better place to go for those than to my Photographer Friend!

Trust in me...
Trust in me…
...too much trust.
…too much trust.
I was there the day this was taken! I was not brave enough to climb up to the cave, though. It was high, and I was getting married in three days, so I was avoiding injury.

My Photographer also has some non-Disney photos… I know, not exactly “Disney housewife-y,” but trust me, you’ll like these.

Fantasy Friday

Fantasy Friday: Pirate Night!

Disney boasts one of the best fireworks shows… while out in the middle of the ocean.  It is so cool!  On our cruise, the fireworks show was on Pirate Night, which ended up being one of my favorite events.

What is Pirate Night, you ask?  Well, it’s the one night that the cruise ship is taken over by PIRATES!  (Don’t worry, the ship completely stays on course, the Captain is still the captain, no one mutinies… for long.)

Luckily, all the pirates really want is the ship… And to find Jack Sparrow!

Er, right.  *Captain* Jack Sparrow.
Er, sorry. *Captain* Jack Sparrow.

On pirate night, you are allowed, nay, encouraged to dress as a pirate, which pleased my little wannabe-cosplayer-at-heart so much.  Luckily, my husband and I knew about Pirate Night ahead of time, and we were prepared with old Halloween costumes.

Husband loves being on a boat. He could be barefoot (almost) everywhere!

Though the pirate night events began with dinner, with a special menu and the servers all decked out in their pirate duds.  We also pirated up before dinner, of course.

After dinner, we waited on deck for the Pirates on the Caribbean show to begin! (When the above feet photo was taken.)  A bunch of cast members pirates were around to entertain all of us cruisers while we waited for the show to begin. Continue reading “Fantasy Friday: Pirate Night!”

Humanized Disney Animal Characters

As I was perusing the internet for pictures of my favorite Disney characters for the 30 day challenge, I came across some impressive Disney drawings that portray classic animated Disney characters as humans.  The artist is known as Chaico, and has an amazing gallery on Deviant Art of both Disney and non-Disney characters.  Here are some of my favorites, categorized by their movies.

Aladdin

The facial expressions and characteristics carry over perfectly.

The personalities are still intact, as are a lot of the facial features.

Disney Days

I have a friend who not only is a fantastic photographer, but is also an amazing photo-editor. Some of her coolest work, and my personal favorites, are what she calls “Disney Days.”

I am happy to say that she has given me permission to share her pictures on my blog!

Apparently, Bambi & friends are in the local woods!

Click me! Bigger & Better resolution.
Is that a bread-and-butterfly?

Points for cuteness, good models, and phenomenal editing.

My personal opinion is that her pictures are better than the magic Disney Photopass pictures, where Disney guests get pictures with characters.

Don’t get me wrong, I really like Disney’s magical photos!  I have one somewhere of a hitchhiking ghost.

But My Photographer gives so much love and time to each picture to make it look just so.

She comes up with some pretty clever shots.

“When we’re human…”
“We already ARE!”

Sometimes, I get to model, too!

Best. Day. Ever!

And sometimes, she shares the camera with her models and ends up on the lens side of the camera.

Aww, they color coordinated!
They color coordinated! So sassy.

Not only is there more Disney, there’s also some Dreamworks, some video games, and just some really cool photos and photo edits.  Enjoy!
