So this was possibly the coldest outfit shoot of my life, it was about -3C out and I had to take my coat and hat off and get these photos taken as quickly as possible haha!
The Hunchback of Notre Dame was one of my favourite Disney films as a child, and probably still is. I loved Esmeralda, and I remember having a doll and a full playset which I adored, and something that upsets me a little is how forgotten this film is, and especially how it isn’t featured in Disneyland Paris, despite Paris being the setting of the movie.
So I decided to honour one of my favourite characters in the form of a Disneybound. It was a spontaneous sewing project that turned into an outfit – a half-circle skirt, with the addition of a tie-round sash, and I had to hand sew the yellow trim which was a nightmare, but I’m so happy with the results, and despite spending the whole day with my coat done up firmly so no one else could appreciate my efforts, at least I’ve got it to wear again now!
Are you a Hunchback fan?

Nice idea ! The outfit turned out really cute, well done 😊
I had an Esmerelda doll too and I dressed up as her for Halloween one year. I did own the film but I stopped watching it because it made me cry too much when he got pelted with tomatoes. Such a softie. Love your outfit! 🙂 x
Yeah I used to get a little bit upset as a kid, but I still love it!
Love this post! The outfit is perfect, and the I love all of the little details you added. The Hunchback of Notre Dame is one of my favourites too, and I love Esmeralda, she’s amazing, and so brave! You look amazing. – Tasha
