Disney Store to the Rescue for Last-Minute Halloween Costumes!

By Official Disney Store Blogger, Oct 29, 2012 9:00 AM

All month long we've been giving you tips and tricks on this year's hottest Disney Halloween costumes, but we have a feeling some of you haven't still haven't gotten around to deciding who you'll be. Luckily, if you're short on time and ideas, we have a few quick fixes that will get you outfitted for a Disney Halloween before you can say "bibbidi, bobbidy boo!"

Minnie Mouse headbandIf you don't have time to put together an entire costume, wear your best polka dotted dress with a cute Minnie Mouse headband, and you'll be just as adorable as Minnie herself.

Perry tee for boysIf you want to have a Phineas and Ferb-inspired Halloween, pair your favorite Perry tee shirt with a fedora, and you'll be solving mysteries like Agent P in no time.

Fuzzy Jack Skellington HatTo make a quick and classy Jack Skellington costume, add this fuzzy hat to a fitted black suit, and don't forget your spider bow tie! For bonus points, have another family member don a raggedy dress and be Sally Stitches.

Cruella De Vil tee for womenIf your style if more villain than princess, this Cruella De Vil tee would look wickedly wonderful with some spotted leggings and a pair of fabulous red heels.

Winne the Booh Cuddly Bodysuit
If you have a little one that is still too fussy (and small) for a full-blown halloween costume, a Disney Babby cuddly bodysuit will keep him comfortable and in the Halloween spirit.

We've given you all the tools you need to put together a great last-minute Halloween costume using what you already have in your closet and a little help from Disney Store

Happy haunting!

Flashback Friday: Tim Burton and Disney

By Official Disney Store Blogger, Oct 26, 2012 9:00 AM

What better time could there be to remember filmmaker Tim Burton's career with Disney than Halloween? His movies always have a creepy exterior with a wonderful heart underneath, so today we're taking you all the way back to the beginning of Tim's time with Disney.

In 1979, Tim was first hired to work for Disney as an animator and concept artist, where he worked on films such as The Black Cauldron.

After five years at Disney, he left the company and created some of his most notable live-action films, but in 1993, we worked with the company again on one of his most treasured films, The Nightmare Before Christmas.

In 1996, he returned to stop-motion animation with James and the Giant Peach.

Most recently, he put a new twist on the Disney classic, Alice in Wonderland.

Today, you can head to theaters to see his latest creation, Frankenweenie!

Happy Friday, Buzz readers. We hope you have a wonderfully weird pre-Halloween weekend that's worthy of a Tim Burton film!
