Bubble Gum Magic
Updated: Jan 5
Walt Disney World parks have become the ultimate destination for finding the most instagramable walls and locations. One of Disney's most famous walls and my second personal favorite wall, is the Bubble gum wall. I found this wall about a year ago. This wall has apparently been at the parks for quiet some time, however, it was not until recently that I finally found it! I knew I had to make a outfit inspired from it! I normally go to the Walt Disney Parks in a outfit that does not have Mickey Mouse or anything character related, this was probably my first time playing around with the actual leader of the club and being very honest, I loved it!
I normally do not dress with Mickey on my outfit while I am at Walt Disney World, however, when I decided to create a look for the bubblegum wall, I knew I wanted it to have a retro chic vibe. While searching for the latest trends that the Walt Disney World company was coming out with I came across their latest collection with Opening Ceremony. I went ahead and purchased their light retro pink skirt and retro white shirt. To pair it up, I found the pink sunglasses from Rite Lane Vintage and used my typical pink Mickey Ears to complete the look.
Since there is a lot going on in the actual picture. We have the pinks, blue, and yellow all causing a lot of commotion, for that reason, I did not want to do such distracting poses, but rather make the Mickeys stand out. I used the pockets on the skirt to my advantage. I made sure to angle my arms backwards to create even more attention on the actual look.
This shoot is located at a very famous wall at Epcot located at Walt Disney World. The entire outfit was based around the actual wall. It is very bright and and under rather great lighting. The time I took it at was early in the morning. This helps avoid the shadows created by the harsh, bright sun at Orlando. It also helps to avoid so much crowds and other people rushing to exit the ride where this wall is found.
Due to the timing of the picture, I did not edit so much for it. I added very little brightness to take off so so much pink and added vibrance and color to make the colors pop. I also made sure to add some contrast between the colors to balance off the actual picture.
This project was made possible in collaboration with Jorge Martinez who was the photographer for this shoot.
The media is found on @madeinwdw on Instagram, where the base for my project can be found.
