We've written once already on couples-themed Disneybound outfits (you can see our first post here!), but this time around, we wanted to put a little twist on the idea. We took five male characters from Disney films and created female outfits for them! These gender bender styles were super fun to create, and we're excited to share them with you. For those of you who aren't familar with the term Disneybound, it's the name for outfits inspired by characters. Disneybounding isn't quite as elaborate as full cosplay, but a step up from just jeans and a t-shirt with Mickey Mouse on it, you know? Just search Pinterest, you'll understand!
1. Hades from Hercules
One of the most amazing villains in the Disney universe HAS to be Hades from the 1997 movie Hercules. James Woods voiced the ruler of the Underworld and was perfectly sarcastic as the mile-a-minute, fast-talking villain. Our lady-Hades (has a ring to it) looks stunningly evil in this styled blue wig. We DIY-ed her top by chopping up two t-shirts: one grey, to match the character's charcoal robes, and one light blue, to match his ghastly skin. The mint one was left a little longer so you could see it layered underneath the two. The top one was cut to a point in the front (pointing down to the belly button), and then split a few inches up the middle. Then you have two little ends to tie together in a knot for a halter look!
How sentimental. You know, I haven't been this choked up since I got a hunk of moussaka caught in my throat.

2. Fix-It Felix from Wreck-It Ralph
Fix-It Felix is the star of the arcade video game of the same name and is also a main character in Wreck-It Ralph, released in 2012. Felix is cheerful, honest, and brave, and he spends much of the movie searching for his co-star, Ralph, and ALL of the movie wearing this denim-heavy outfit. Our Fix-It Felicia couldn't help but partake in the Canadian tuxedo style, but with a cute denim mini-skirt and chambray top instead. If you're Disneybounding as Felix, a can-do attitude is a must have, and a gold, spray-painted hammer doesn't hurt either.
"I can fix it!"

3. Gaston from Beauty and the Beast
Oh, Gaston. The Disney villain girls love to hate. And look at. And fawn over. We mean, as far as cartoon characters go, Gaston is like, really cute, right? (That's not weird, right? If so, we were kidding. Duh.) This genderswapped Gaston outfit is a little lumberjack-inspired, but with the right amount of confidence (erm, ego), Gaston will shine through. Dark red and mustard are the two stand-out colors of this costume, so feel free to accessorize as you see fit! Beauty and the Beast came out in 1991, but we still somehow have "No one hits like Gaston, matches wits with Gaston..." stuck in our heads.

4. Jafar from Aladdin
This Disneybound of Jafar from 1992's Aladdin can be as costume-y or fashion-y as you like, it just depends on the accessories. If you want to go to dinner, maybe skip the Ankh walking stick. If you're going to a convention, it's fine! Regardless, at its base, this outfit is chic and easy to pull together. We took a plain black t-shirt and cut the sleeeves off, as well as the collar. We tucked the shirt into a high-waisted maxi skirt, tied a red scarf around her waist as a belt, and paired the look with some gladiator sandals. Black cat-eye eyeliner, though, is SO needed to complete this look. We're also pretty fond of the model's beehive-as-turban hairstyle.

5. Baymax from Big Hero 6
Big Hero 6 is an incredibly cute movie released just last year and is responsible for introducing us all to Baymax, an inflatable, medical assistant robot, who was the cutest part of the flick. We have to admit, this Disneybound was the most fun to create. Think fluffy, think white, think adorable.
We also took the extra step to craft a bow for this Disneybound of Baymax. We used some t-shirt fabric, hot glue, and black felt to mimic the robot's eye shape. Everything else, well...we just tried to get as BIG as possible. A big skirt, big hair! Even platform sneakers! (Plus, a cherry red lollipop.)
"Hello, I am Baymax, your personal healthcare companion."

While these Disney gender bender outfits were SO fun to make, it just fanned the flame of us wanting to create more, more, more! What other characters would you like to see? More genderbent Disneybounds? Or maybe a whole theme of Disney Princesses! Anything we would pick would be fun to create.
