Snow White's 80th Patterns

As I was out looking for patterns to make my Halloween costume (is it just me, or does it get earlier every year?) I happened upon some fabulous adult patterns that featured Snow White!
This traditional costume is just what every girl needs for Halloween.  Pattern was 9.99 at Walmart, craft stores are more expensive but look for a sale.

This pattern is the one I was thrilled to find.  Isn't this outfit adorable?  I think it would be great to wear at a D23 Expo! A period inspired Snow White!

Of course, the little ones weren't left out.  Note there isn't a logo for the 80th anniversary on this pattern.

Typo Celebrates Snow White's 80th

I went in my first Typo store in the Spectrum Center in Irvine, California and I fell in love!  At the time, they had an adorable Mickey Mouse line and the To-Do list pad I bought is still a staple at work for me.

Dark Fairy Tale

There have been so many designers who have teamed up with Disney in the last few years.  Coach has done a few Mickey and Minnie themed lines and has now released a line called "A Dark Fairy Tale."  The line features iconic images from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs like the posion apple:

DISNEY X COACH POISON APPLE TOTE

However the line also features a less iconic imagine: what Coach is calling "Spooky Eyes."  These eyes show up as Snow White is fleeing from the forest.

It turns out that these eyes are really just the forest animals checking out the frightened Snow White, but they sure do look spooky!

The line also features this image:

The wood grain print that mimics the dwarfs cottage is an amazing touch.

Even the tissue paper has the seven dwarfs on it!

The Return of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

I recently received a beautiful hard cover book that I had been looking forward to for some time.  The cover features Snow White and the six dwarfs. 

The back is where you will find Dopey running away terrified of the evil queen.  Read the back cover...

It all sounds interesting, doesn't it?  An eighth dwarf?  I can assure you that you aren't prepared for the craziness featured in these pages.

This is the English-language debut of Romano Scarpa's Snow White tales for Disney Comics written throughout the 30s and 40s.  It features the return of the Queen (named Grimhilde), new witches, a Three-Caballeros inspired character, and much more zany antics.  You get the sense that story continuity was not important.

I read the first of the four series right away, and it does not disappoint.  It is absolutely crazy and leaves you thinking, who approved this anyway?

All I can say is enjoy!
