May the 4th is Star Wars day. It is a day when Star Wars fan celebrate the Star Wars films and culture. This day falls on May the 4th because of it’s pun resemblance to the famous film line – “May the force be with you”. Apparently though, Star Wars fans were not the first to pen the pun. In 1979 when Margaret Thatcher was elected Britain’s first female Prime Minister on May 4 her party placed an advertisement in The London Evening News that said “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations.” Either way, I have but one thing to say to you all on the day:
May the fourth be with you.

For the final day of Disney week I have decided to end off with a bang and take on my favourite Disney film of all time – The Little Mermaid. Many people have requested separate to Disney week that I dress as Ariel, so essentially I have hit two birds with one stone.

To even out Disney Week some more, today I bring you a villain – Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians. It took me YEARS to figure out her name meant cruel devil, but once I did, it was like MIND.BLOWN.
Please note this is my natural curly hair that I only had to tease the tiniest of bits to turn it into this madness. Also, to achieve the half white hair look, I just covered half of my hair in baby powder.
When I went to Disneyland, all over every store was Tinkerbell. And I mean EVERYWHERE. Personally I didn’t get it, but then again, I’m not a 5 year old girl anymore (no matter how much I love fairy bread). To me she was a minor character from Peter Pan and Hook, but to anyone under 10 she is the newest Disney princess. So to the new generation of Disney lovers I give you, Tinkerbell.
