    Hong Kong Disney's Costumes

    I didn't see a topic go up for it yet (Though, DuffyD mentioned moving it to a topic of it's own), but a picture was put up on Hong Kong Disney's website so...


    It's definitely similar to the Tokyo Disney costumes (looks a lot more plush than the US one) with a few differences. Most notably the hat (It looks more like the US, but with the puffiness of the Tokyo costumes) and the collar looks bigger. It doesn't look like it has pants, but it could have bottoms similar to the 2009 costume.

    Cute. THAT is what we should have got in the US instead of yet another 12" pre-dressed bear. Disney again missed the boat. My Halloween costume money is going to Build A Bear.

    Thanks for making the topic, Wondering. I got asked away and by the time I came back I'd completely forgotten it.

    I just don't understand why the US isn't getting this. The Tokyo costumes and merchandise are designed by an in-house creative team. Disney would probably have to pay the Oriental Land Company to have access to those designs. But this is obviously based on the US 12" design, so it's already part of Disney Parks. With so many US fans clamoring for costumes, I can't see why they'd produce this yet hold off on releasing it in their own backyard.

    Someone I know who works for Disney once told me this "If it doesn't make sense, then you know it's Disney!" Never have those words been so right! On so many levels! LOL

    Disney's loss is Build A Bear's gain... for me at least.

    We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

    Re: Hong Kong Disney's Costumes

    Still not feeling 100%, but I'm on the way to find out what Cannery Clothing Company is all about. It occurs to me that no one has confirmed that Hong Kong actually had a 17" Halloween costume release. Looking at the photo, I think that could be the 12" plush. Can someone confirm that an original separate costume was actually released? Thanks in advance!^^

    Re: Hong Kong Disney's Costumes

    Yes, I can confirm it. I've seen one on Ebay.

    eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

    It's cute, but not quite as nice as the TDS version, as expected. Still, it's very puzzling why this was not made for sale at the US parks...

To my knowledge, no. With American Duffy fans constantly saying they'd like more costumes for the bear, even on the Facebook page, and after making such a big deal out of Duffy's Pumpkin Patch in California, plus the fact that America is the place on Earth where Halloween is actually celebrated the most, you'd think they'd have seized the synergy here. Idongetit.

    PS: updebrooke, I'm so sorry I neglected to THANK YOU for posting this originally

    Its cute. I too don't know why the states didn't get that costume. I think that one would sell. It looks like a better quailty then the christmas one that is out. So sad to see Duffy not get what he needs to go far in the states. Its nice to know he has a shot in HK.

    Re: Hong Kong Disney's Costumes

    Even though I bought the US Christmas costume (it really does look better in person), I'm going to improve it in my own way with accessories from BAB and stuff my aunt can make. The t-shirt with the outfit is actually too big, so I'm going to try a plain white shirt from BAB and if that doesn't work I'll figure something out. I have black boots from BAB that look good with the outfit and the red scarf that came with the Snoopy flying ace costume looks decent with it as well. For now, this is a work in progress.
