Woman dresses up as Disney character everyday using clothes she already hasApril 16, 2020
A wannabe princess is making lockdown much more fun by dressing up as a different Disney character each day, using just the clothes she already has in her house. Isabel Burrows, is proving that Disney dress-up needn’t be expensive or complicated. And she is fashioning outfits to match her favourite characters by raising her wardrobes. The 22-year-old has been a hardcore Disney fan since she was a little girl, and now she’s using lockdown as an opportunity to become as many of her favourite characters as possible. So far, Isabel has embodied Mary Poppins, Cruella, Ariel and Smee, with clever costumes.
She has also donned outfits for Peter Pan and John Darling, Alice in Wonderland’s Alice, The Princess and the Frog’s Tiana, and Beauty and the Beast’s Belle. ‘I have been obsessed with Disney for as long as I can remember, she says. ‘I thought – “I’m going to challenge myself to come up with these looks.”
‘Now Disney Plus has come out, I have been watching 24/7. I wanted to do something fun to keep busy.’ Isabel already had Ariel and Belle costumes at home before lockdown began, and she has been to one Comicon event, but the rest were made from what she could find around the house. But this primary school teacher is used to being creative and said she has collected various costume items from school dressing up days.
