Disney Bounding As Ursula At Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

My hubby and I were lucky enough to snag a reservation the opening month for Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge at Disneyland. I like Star Wars, but my hubby really, really loves Star Wars and had been anxiously awaiting the opening of Galaxy’s Edge since it was announced years ago. But honestly, I’d say he was waiting for something like this since he was ten years old. Being able to go on its opening month was very exciting.

Well, I could just go in plain-old clothes. As I mentioned in a previous post, I wanted to go in a Bounding outfit. For this trip, it would have to be my Ursula themed clothes. My Ariel crochet outfit wasn’t ready yet, but I thought I could whip up some quick Ursula ears and I did!

Unfortunately, they flopped-over a little. It wasn’t bad, but I  knew I’d be trying to flop them back up all night. The choice was to leave them at home or try to do a quick fix to stiffen them up. In my infinite wisdom, I decided to stiffen them with glue water…the day of! Needless to say, they didn’t dry before we had to leave. Hubby thought we should take them anyway and see if they dried up on the way. They didn’t.

They almost did, but they flopped even more from the heaviness of the water, even though they were almost dry. Almost wasn’t going to be good enough. We left them in the car. Oh well, I was still happy with my outfit. And we had a really good time. The ears were perfect once they dried and are ready for the next trip. 🙂

As you can imagine, we took a ton of pictures to mark such a momentous occasion. I wanted to share all of them but I didn’t think anybody would thank me for that! I narrowed it down to my favorites.

Disney Mickey Mouse Ears Crochet Ideas

Sometimes (always) I can become a little (a lot) focused (obsessed) about certain projects. We all remember the sweaters/coats I made. I just wanted to make one and ended up making three because I kept thinking the next one would be better. As it turns out, the first one is my favorite.

Then there was my Minecraft phase where it was all about Minecraft. That rolled into my Pokemon phase where I was making all kinds of Pokeballs. Oh, and the puppet phase. There are plenty of other phases I’ve gone through and right now I’m in the middle of my ‘Disney Mickey Mouse Ears’ stage. I have mouse ears coming out of my ears!

Let’s start at the beginning of the first ‘Ears’ phase. Awhile back, I crocheted my own hats to wear at Disneyland because we had passes. I wanted something unique and I made two for me and one for my hubby.

The first hat I made. This one was for me of course. 🙂

This one came second. The bow helped the ears stand upright.

This one was for hubby. He got many compliments whenever he wore it.
