Disney Fashion on the High Street!

Being a fan of Disney might not be something that most people consider to be necessarily geeky, however, in my experience being a fan of Disney fashion tends to be quite a geeky trait. I love Disney and would quite happily show off my Disney pride in any way I can. Unlike other franchises, Disney is pretty popular in UK high street stores as it’s consider to be something that most (if not all) women like so there was plenty to choose from. A lot of the time though it was sleepwear or underwear though; a not so subtle suggestion that women don’t want to wear these sorts of things? 😛 You’ll also notice a reoccurring theme or lack of theme, namely what retailers think are the most popular Disney characters so lots of the Mouses and Princes. I did managed to dig out a few other items and they are here in this post, so enjoy!

Check out the rest of the board below for more items!

 

 

Primark

Nightdresses

As I said, sleepwear was a common theme and despite the connotation that women only want to be seen in Disney clothes in their bedroom, some of them are downright cute. Primark have finally updated their website (hurray!) to actually show products which means I can bring you these goodies. There’s the beautiful Aladdin Nightdress in a deep burgundy, followed by some pure cattitude from the Aristocats Marie Nightshirt, and finally this fantastic ‘I speak fluent Disney’ nightdress (it’s listed as a pajama top, it looks way too long to be a top to me) which I would LOVE as t-shirt.

 

 

Pyjamas

Primark also have some really cute Pyjama sets in right now, and I loved the fact that they had a variety of characters as well! First up are a personal favourite of mine; Chip ‘n’ Dale. I used to love Rescue Rangers when I was a kid so every time I see anything with these guys on I’m super happy.  Next is an awesome set of Aladdin PJs featuring the genie, and then there’s a cute pair set of Thumper Pyjamas.

 

 

Socks

We’re finally getting to something you can show off in the day time 😉 Primark have some fabulous Disney socks right now including the ones featured here: Little Mermaid, Mrs Potts & Chip, Stitch and Disney Team.

 

Miscellaneous

Here are a few more ‘outgoing’ *wink* Disney items I found while exploring the Primark website. They have a nice range of caps, including these two; a Minnie Mouse cap complete with ears and a bow and a plainer Mickey Mouse one. This Mickey Mouse hoodie was one of the few non-sleepwear items I could find. And yes, I am aware that a cushion is not a fashion item – but this Lion King Hakuna Matata cushion is just so awesome! I had to include it and I want one so badly!

 


 

Sports Direct

 

Sports Direct still has some good stuff on offer, including some great Disney swimwear which considering the weather in the UK right now is right on point! Their Disney range includes these two great items which aren’t your usual run of the mill Disney. The Disney Princess swimwear set is dark and gothic, and the Swimming Costume features the often overlooked villains. There aren’t many t-shirts listed and this Disney Princess Rose T-Shirt (also available in pink) and Minnie and Mickey arguing T-Shirt were the only ones available.

 

 

Uniqlo

 

Personally I’m not a big fan of Uniqlo as I find that their women’s t-shirts tend to be terribly unisex, however, they are the only UK high street store that goes out of it’s way to collaborate with geeky franchises. They did so with Disney and you view the whole collaboration here. I’ve chosen a few of my favourite pieces to show you here; Jasmine t-Shirt, The Little Mermaid t-shirt, Minnie and Daisy BFFs t-shirt,   Minnie and the sun t-shirt,   Mickey and the Sun shorts, and Mickey sweat long sleeve dress.

 

 

TK Maxx

 

I found some great T-Shirts over at TK Maxx including these Snow White and Cinderella ones which appear to be part of a series so check out the pinterest board for the others. It was great to see a Tinkerbell and Bambi t-shirt too instead of sleepwear for a change 😉

 

 

George at Asda

 

 

Last of all I bring you my best finds. George at Asda had some great Disney stuff and here are my favourites. I am absolutely in love with this Beauty and the Beast Squad Goals T-shirt! The colours and design of this Aladdin pyjama set is gorgeous, and then there’s two unique mouse designs; a red Minnie top and an ice cream Mickey t-shirt.

Geek on the High Street [Geek on the High Street]

Sharing Saturday: Geek on the High Street

It’s that time again! The aim of Geek on the High Street is to find and highlight geeky products that can be found in normal high street stores. Unfortunately a lot of women’s clothes stores and department stores like Debenhams & M&S consider geeky stuff to be for men or children. So Geek on the High Street was born to shine a light on some of the hidden geeky treasures for geek girls. I’ll be mainly focusing on women’s fashion since mostly women read my blog, but if anyone is interested in a male version please let me know in the comments!You can check out round 1 here and round 2 here 🙂

Like last time you can find a few of my favourites featured in this post while the pinterest board has everything! 🙂


 
 

 

Dorothy Perkins

Not much over at Dorothy Perkins as usual, however, there were a few cute and quirky items such as these racoon slippers, retro top and unicorn socks.

 

George at Asda

This time around George at Asda was quite a let down. A few socks, a Minnie and Mickey top and a few unicorn themed items were the highlights.

 

 

Evans

 

 

First timers on Geek on the High Street, Evans don’t have much in the way of geeky but I did manage to spot these quirky tops and some fab items in their nightwear section. Namely some awesome animal pyjama and night mask sets and animal themed dressing gowns.

 

H & M

H & M have an eclectic selection right now, including some DC underwear, this fabulous dragon onesie and some Disney and Star wars goodies.

 

New Look

Sorry unicorn fans, it seems that New Look has ditched their fascination with unicorns. Instead there’s some grungy gothic items and some cutie pie socks to satisfy your geeky needs!

 

Next

Next had a surprising amount of bits that caught my eye, including items from Disney, some rock band tees, these snazzy Star Wars PJs and just look at those awesome swan slippers!

 

Matalan

Another newcomer, Matalan seems to keep their geeky and quirky items for places that can’t be seen in public. Namely, sleeping, shoes and socks. If you’re partial to quirky socks then this is a place for you to check out.

 

River Island

 

River Island is mainly focused on dark, rock and grunge items, although there’s a few quirky items such as this science planet t-shirt that I spotted.

 

Select

First time here for Select, and and as you can see they don’t really cater much to the alternative and geeky crowd. I did find these two items though, and loving the #witchplease top.

 

Sports Direct

Sports Direct are once again the winner in all round awesomeness for alternative, quirky and geeky items with a tonne of well known fandoms and names covered. Like always you can view all the items I found on the Geek on the High Street pinterest board, but here are a few I had to share with you!

 

Sports Direct – Dresses

Wait.. Sports Direct have a new shop? ‘Fraid not folks. There were just that many absolutely awesome geeky dresses and skirts that I had to give them their own section, and even then this was me ‘narrowing it down to a select few’. Yep, you need to check them out on the pinterest board pronto!

 

TK Maxx

Ok, I may just be a little bit obsessed with the TK Maxx cat hoodie and t-shirt featured above. There’s not really any fandoms over there and the only geeky brands are band related. There’s some fun quirky and fantasy stuff though, like the dinosaur top and the wolf eyes t-shirt.

 

Topshop

Topshop’s geeky game is a bit all over the place this time around to be honest. There’s not really any fandoms, other than the Disney PJs seen here. However, if you’re looking for weird, whimsical, whacky and quirky then Topshop has you covered. As you can see from the selection here there’s some science stuff, zodiac, a few unicorns, some nifty slogans and those damn awesome snake jeans.

 

Uniqlo

Sadly Uniqlo’s collaboration with Disney is over, as is their Star Wars one that featured in December (although, to be fair you didn’t miss much as most of it catered to men or unisex). There’s still some Minnie and Mickey items about, as well as a bunch of Peanuts stuff and some awesome Marvel comic t-shirts too.

 

Have you spotted some geeky items around your local high street? Anything I’ve missed? Let me know, and don’t forget to follow the Pinterest board for future updates!

Incredible Disney Fanart You Need To See

Sharing Saturday: Disney Fan Art

 

This week Sharing Saturday is a special edition. Earlier this week we laid to rest my nan, the woman who introduced me to the magic of Disney. She was a huge fan of Disney and so it seems only right to dedicate this week to her love. So here is a selection of my favourite Disney fanart on Deviant Art.

 

Disclaimer: The work here is displayed only out of admiration and credit is given for every image (I use the ’embed’ code directly from dA). If you are the artist and want your work removed please leave me a comment. If you like some of the art here please take the time to visit the artist’s DeviantArt and/or leave a comment to let them know. This is probably obvious, but: this post is very image heavy.

Geek on the High Street

Sharing Saturday: Geek on the High Street

Now that it’s autumn and there’s new clothing lines in, it’s time for round 2 of Geek on the High Street! The aim of Geek on the High Street is to find and highlight geeky products that can be found in normal high street stores. Unfortunately a lot of womens clothes stores and department stores like Debenhams & M&S consider geeky stuff to be for men or children. So Geek on the High Street was born to shine a light on some of the hidden geeky treasures for geek girls. I’ll be mainly focusing on women’s fashion since mostly women read my blog, but if anyone is interested in a male version please let me know in the comments! You can check out round 1 here 🙂

This time I decided to create a pinterest board as well, and have pinned everything I’ve found on that board. This post only features a few of my favourites while the pinterest board has everything! 🙂
 
 


 
 

Please note – To view an item closer please click the image to see a bigger size.
 

New Look

New Look are continuing their love for unicorns in a range of products including these awesome t-shirts that I thought were fantastic! There’s also an umbrella and some lovely purses with cats and unicorns too.

 

 

Sports Direct

Sports Direct remains the ruler of Geek on the High Street by far and right now a bunch of awesome stuff is on sale with ‘MUST GO’ tags. So go go go! There’s t-shirts, leggings, dresses, swim wear… really so much and all pinned on the pinterest board!

 

   George (Asda)

 

Sadly, George at Asda doesn’t have any geeky t-shirts or main clothing products but they do have a whole bunch of wonderful underwear and sleeping wear. How awesome are those Teenage Ninja Turtle briefs?!

 

Dorothy Perkings

Dorothy Perkings is sadly not very geek girl friendly, but I did find these cute quirky socks that I thought would appeal to come geeky girls.

 

 

H & M

H & M has a range of Disney and Band/Rock products to choose from. Here’s some of my favourites, and also a random esoteric/alchemy tote bag that I came across (and may have fell in love with…. 😉 ).

 

Miss Selfridge

Carrying on the popular trend of Minnie and Mickey is Miss Selfridge and here’s a selection of some of their products featuring Disney’s infamous couple.

 

Next

Another store that seems to think geeky stuff belongs firmly in the men or kids section is Next, however, I did find these few items that are a bit on the geeky side. Personally I love the Mouse socks, I think they’re so cute and elegant and a touch subtle.

 

River Island

Found these few gems in River Island; that cat t-shirt screams geek to me!

 

Tesco/Tesco Direct

I know Tesco has its own clothing range, however, the website is for Tesco Direct which doesn’t really tell me whether these can be found in store. On the website there is a load of geeky stuff, however, this is Geek on the High Street not Geek on the web. I wanted to include a few of the goodies I found there because there is some seriously awesome stuff and if you have a Tesco near you, take a look sometime and see! More on the pinterest board if you want to see what else I found.

 

 

TK Maxx

TK Maxx is more about brand names at affordable prices so they don’t tend to have much geeky stuff, occasionally you’ll find a few and these are what I found. A random Superpowers top which comes in a range of colours and this Art Loves unite which I thought might appeal to some artistis/art geeks 🙂

 

Top Shop

 

Top Shop had a reputation to keep up with after my surprise finds last time and it didn’t disappoint! There’s a range of Disney stuff, some random geeky things like the NASA and Dinosaur tops featured above, band/rock t-shirts and some Snoopy thrown in there too. Like before, everything I found is on the pinterest board.

 

Uniqlo

 

So it turns out that Uniquo have an arrangement with Disney and these are just some of the wonderful results. As you can see there’s still some Minnie & Mickey, but a load of other Disney characters too! I am so excited to see the chipmunks (!!) and love the Tangled and Belle t-shirts. Be sure to check out the whole range on the pinterest board.

 

 

I hope you enjoyed this round of Geek on the High Street! Is there anything that caught your eye? Anything I’ve missed? Let me know!
