Time for another great bit of Disney fan art. This time round it’s Captain Hook who’s getting the treatment. To be honest I’ve never really looked on him as a crook precisely, though he is clearly a villain. But that’s just me and its beside the point. This artwork by ReddyArts gives us Captain Hook in a real swashbuckling … Continue reading Disney Fan Art — Hook, The World’s Most Famous Crook
So… Frozen. It’s a movie. You may have heard of it. Disney… musical? Nothing? Well for the sake of the three people who have managed to completely culturally isolate themselves let me explain that there’s a snowman in it by the name of Olaf. And if you’d like to be able to build that LEGO snowman… well … Continue reading Do You Want To Build A LEGO Snowman?
This image amuses me, mainly because I know there’s going to be a reaction to it. Mashing up Moulin Rouge and Disney in the form of Mickey and Minnie Mouse is a bizarre sort of thing to do, but it’s been very nicely executed by Mario Oscar Gabrielle.

So today is the day that The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train officially opens in the Magic Kingdom. A cause for great excitement amongst Disney Theme Park fans and marking the final completion of the New Fantasyland project after approximately 1 billion years (it’s possible I’m exaggerating slightly). All of which is pretty cool in itself. But if, … Continue reading Looking At The Design And Technology Of The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
This version of Disney’s Pocahontas plays up the warrior aspects of the character. This is not a person you would like to meet alone in the woods… See more photos at the link.

This cosplay of Belle and Beast (in his princely form) is pretty much pitch perfect. Amazing costuming, great bit of photography.

What do you mean you haven’t been waiting for it? Oh quit fussing, at least it’s not yet another Let It Go parody! Is it just me or is Disney’s Frozen generating mashups and parodies and an exceptionally high rate anyway? This time round we get to see Anna, Elsa and co dance to Michael Jackson’s … Continue reading The Frozen / Thriller Mashup You’ve Been Waiting For!
So Disney’s movie Maleficent, which is supposed to give a bit of a Wicked spin on the Sleeping Beauty villain isn’t even out yet, but I guess those photos of Angelina Jolie have made an impression, because there is cosplay! And excellent work it is too, both in costuming and photography. Source: L.A. JAZE Cosplay Eoghann Irving Overly … Continue reading Disney’s Maleficent Cosplay
Okay here’s a clever build that hits both my LEGO and Disney geek spots. It’s Rafiki from Disney’s The Lion King. And while the body is (as the builder acknowledges) a little minimalist the detail on the head is just perfect. I like the meditation pose that the character has been put in and once again LEGO’s … Continue reading LEGO Disney — Rafiki
Artist Sakimi chan has produced a series of images that reimagine classic Disney characters as the opposite gender (and sexed up a bit too in most cases). Male Pocahontas and female Hades are pretty awesome but I think my vote goes for the male Cruella Deville as the winner. Which is your favorite? Check out the Facebook page … Continue reading Disney Fan Art: Gender Switching
It shouldn’t be much longer now until the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney Wold opens and completes the New Fantasyland expansion. They haven’t officially announced a date, but some time in May is what everyone seems to be expecting. We’ve see plenty of shots of the outside and some concept … Continue reading Seven Dwarfs Mine Train — A First Look At Some Of The Animatronics
Artist Mike V has produced a series of pixel art designs for Disney characters as they would appear in a Street Fighter style game. And as the selection here shows, they’re brilliant. Check out his web page for more. Source: #Mikevdesign Eoghann Irving Overly opinionated owner and author of eoghann.com.

The big new thing at Walt Disney World this year is the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train which is the final element of New Fantasyland (the rest of which opened some time ago). By the standards of modern coasters this is a tame ride. It’s intended for families and aimed somewhere between the Barnstormer “kiddie” coaster and Big … Continue reading Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Photos
Here’s a wonderful cosplay by LadyGiselle. Not only does she capture the look of Disney’s Cinderella all dressed up for the ball, but the photograph is staged to show her rapid exit from that ball and of course there’s the shoe on the stairs.

I’ve been covering the Festival of Fantasy Parade that Disney has been working on for a few months and everything about it promised to be something special. Well it’s here and if these photos by Disney Photography Blog are anything to go by, it really is something else. These floats are huge. Far bigger than anything we’ve … Continue reading The Festival of Fantasy Parade At The Magic Kingdom
