Divas Event Merchandise
The Fabulous Disney Babe has already received her Divas Event Packet, detailing all of the fun and frolic that awaits those of us who were lucky enough to get tickets. If you're going, or if you want to know what you'll be missing, you should read her full report.
Michelle was kind enough to forward me all of the Merchandise Info for the event, and I am really excited to see some of the pieces. While I was disappointed that there were no photos of the High End stuff, I was thrilled to see the selection of the lower priced items.
MouseShoppe will be offering a selection of the Event Merchandise to MousePlanet readers who can't attend the event. The links below will take you to the appropriate MouseShoppe page. Be sure to check out our Event Information page for all of the details before you order! If you would like to order an item that is not listed below, please e-mail me here for assistance.
If you're a Pin Collector, this event is a dream come true! There will be SEVEN different pins available at this event. There will be pins featuring both the Divas Logo and the Villains Logo. Plus there is a set of Lenticular Pins, each featuring a different Diva. Maleficent, The Evil Queen, Ursula, Cruella DeVil and the Queen of Hearts each get a chance to show you her "good" and "bad" sides.
You won't have a hard time finding something to wear after this event. Three shirts are being offered, as well as a lower - priced jacket. The Villains Logo will be featured on a Polo Shirt as well as a T-Shirt and a baseball cap. The Divas Logo will be shown on a T-Shirt as well as a Black SATIN Bomber Jacket. This jacket is a great alternative to the $500 coats often offered at these events, and SATIN? Purrr.....
Finally, there will be a few trinkets to take home. The Evil Queen is the subject of a Limited Edition watch, which is presented in a great box - take a look at it! There will also be an Event Coin, featuring the Divas Logo on one side and the Villains / Chernobog Logo on the other.
With all this great stuff, what more could we ask for? Well, actually... I would have liked to see a Villains CD. Start with Night on Bald Mountain and go from there! Every modern Diva has her "I'm so rotten" song - so there's a collection! Given the continued popularity of the prior two Event CDs, this seems like an obvious product. I would also have liked to see more Character Specific merchandise for this event. While Maleficent may already be the Character of the Month, much of her merchandise is already sold out. And, my final plea - would it KILL you guys to make a denim shirt every once in a while? ;o)
I realize it's a tough call, and this is a very limited audience With only 500 people to shop for, you can't go too crazy with the selection. I think the buyers have done a great job, and I can't wait to see everything in person.
Actually, some of the items MUST be seen in person. They are making "reservations" to view the higher end pieces. It's a good compromise. It won't be a free for all, and there won't be a huge line. Some of the items sound really interesting. I'm not sure where I'd use a Divas Charger Plate, but I'm dying to see it!
All in all, I am pretty happy with what I've seen. It looks like a lot of thought went into the planning of the merchandise and it's distribution. Only 16 more days until the event! And now, I'm going to go sit patiently on the porch and wait for the FedEx lady to bring me my package...
Oh - one more, totally off topic item here: There is a national Blood Shortage right now. I'm on the "Don't Call Me Unless You Really REALLY Need Me" list of blood donors - and they called me last week. I made my "Appointment with the Vampire" and went in today. In the spirit of the Halloween Season, please take the time to give blood. The Vampires at the Red Cross will be happy, (probably not that I'm calling them names!), and you'll help to make sure that someone lives to see the holidays.
