D23 Expo: Day 1 recap and photo album

Day one of the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA was a lot of fun. I went there without a plan. Armed with only my HTC One phone, I decided to take a few laps around the first floor and just enjoy all the Disneyness.

I ran into some interesting characters outfitted in homemade costumes.

Bid on some authentic Haunted Mansion props. Same pictures, different angle.

Enjoyed the art and creativity in pieces like this one.

And saw some D23 exclusive items, like this larger-than-normal Iron Man RC Extreme Hero. It’s a protype. Sorry! Not for sale.

And FINALLY had the opportunity to see the beloved Marc Jacobs Mickey Mouse sweater that I had been drooling over a while ago.

and check out these über-cute Minnie Mouse outfits!

I also found my new favorite dress – from the Forever 21 “Comics Universe” collection!

Tomorrow I’m hoping to purchase “Ariel” makeup from Sephora.

I couldn’t get enough of the seatbelt bags designed by Harvey’s – so I took a 15 second video to share with you.

My first day at this year’s D23 Expo was fun and in my book, a success. Can’t wait to see what day two brings.

This is not a sponsored post. I received a press pass to this event. Pictures taken using my HTC One cellphone sponsored by Sprint. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.
