Would You Want A Disney Themed Prom Outfit?

disneybound

The site Disneybound is really going to help you transition gently into adulthood…

… by suggesting Disney themed prom ensembles. So, not really transitioning you into adulthood at all. This is a little odd because the main purpose of a prom seems to be “giving you a preview of what it will be like when you have to attend black tie weddings or pancreatic cancer benefits”. That is to say, they teach you that there will be cold, slightly dry chicken served at all of them, and you will make uncomfortable conversation about seeing The Hunger Games with whoever is seated on your left. (I fondly recall spending my entire prom talking to my date about Opus Dei, so it was actualy very successful in that regard.)

Disney outfits seem like the antithesis of “becoming an adult now, maybe.”

Look, let me just wave my arms around and screech ugh, ugh, ugh, women-children for a second. Now that I’ve done that – the outfits are pretty cute.

Now I need to go investigate who this Dr. Facilier is, because I am old.

    Dr. Facilier is the villain from Princess and the Frog.

    When Disneybound wants to give us access to a replica of the ACTUAL necklace Ariel wore in The Little Mermaid (yes, I’ve twice spent approximately 20 minutes Googling it and, no, the handmade Etsy ones are not good enough), I will pay attention.

    Maybe I’m just bitter.

    Opus Dei? Yeah, I had to look it up. Come on, you’re making that up. What did you really do on your prom night? :) Does it count when your anti-Establishment, and your friend’s sister invites you? I still remember this was the best slow-dance of the evening. A Live Springsteen song.

    If this were a mermaid dress, it’d be cooler.
