Sadness is the most lovable Disney character ever! She has a deep empathy that no one else seems to understand, and maybe she doesn’t even get it. She was cast so well and really made the movie (Inside Out, if you live under a rock and didn’t know). I think I found the best way to capture her in the outfit below.

SADNESS_Fullbody_RenderWhat is Disney Bounding?

Disney Bounding is the act of dressing to represent a Disney character. It is not wearing costumes, but putting together an outfit that would be perceived as a regular outfit, but could also be identified as being reminiscent of a Disney character.

Disneyland and Walt Disney World both prohibit adults from entering the parks wearing costumes. This ensures that children do not confuse regular park goers with Disney characters. Disney Bounding began when a Disney enthusiast wanted to show her love of Disney characters, without breaking the dress code rules of the Disney Parks.


I adored Sadness, and I feel like I found pieces that emulate her. The slouchy hat and oversized sweater really say “Sadness” to me, and of course the bobbles fit with the whole story of Inside Out. If you haven’t seen it yet, you simply must!

See you next week for another Disney Bounding outfit from Inside Out. Check back every Friday, and you may enjoy this Rey Disney Bound from Star Wars too!
