Maleficent: Product Line

Traveling to LA for press trips as much as I do, I am often asked if it ever gets old doing the same thing each time?  That is such an odd question to me for it’s never the same trip twice.  Each experience is unique for several reasons.  Many times there are still firsts, meaning even going out several times a year, I still do things I’ve never done.  This is a perfect example.

Disney’s Glendale Creative Campus is a little different than other Disney campuses.   It’s pretty cool to be right where most of the product line magic happens.  They even have this amazing library filled with tons of information for the product developers.  They are held to researching the products that they are making and the on campus library offers everything to help in the process including the toys, books, clothes and more.  One thing that Disney is huge on is doing the research.

Of course it’s all things Disney, but it has a very contemporary feel.  It was a perfect spot to learn all the very cool product line that has been released for All things Maleficent.

 Maleficent:  Product Line

Let’s first take a look at some of the goodies I got as a gift from Disney.

Aurora Costume – Your princess will awaken as if from a fairytale when wearing this Aurora Deluxe Costume for Girls. Inspired by the designs in Disney’s live-action film Maleficent, this elegantly detailed outfit will bring the story to life.

One thing I love is that Disney is so good to think of all the things you could possibly ever want to buy and pretty much makes it be.  But one thing I hadn’t ever thought of is the time and energy that goes into the process.  It’s a treat to get to meet the person that sees thousands of little girls wearing her princess dress designs.  Ariella Seltzer is the Associate Designer for Disney Store North America.  She talked about how when she starts a project she goes for the best of everything for her prototype and then makes it work within budget by the time the product hits the line.

Maleficent is not only going to be the most popular costume this Halloween for girls, but everything Maleficent will continue to reign cool for quite a while for everyone.  There are also a ton of clothes coming your way that are inspired by the film.  Stella McCarthy has an amazing clothes line, you just need to see for yourself!

Disney Maleficent and Dragon Mug – Finally, my favorite Maleficent product!  I LOVE my mug!

Usually with these films some beauty brand jumps on board, and when you think of dramatic makeup and Maleficent, it’s almost a given that you will next see MAC.  What an awesome line!

  1. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  2. Hello this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  3. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

  4. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and video clips, this site could undeniably be one of the most beneficial in its field. Good blog!

  5. Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for beginner blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.
