Mayumi and Mayhem Take Over the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort

posted on June 7th, 2012 by Michelle Harker, Manager, Merchandise Marketing & Communications, Disneyland Resort


If you are looking to add a lot of “shiawase” (“happiness”) and a bit of “mayhem” to your life this summer, then make plans now to visit the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort and you will be able to do just that.

“Mayumi•Gumi “Mayumi•Gumi

First up on June 16, from 4 – 6 p.m., is the launch of Mayumi•Gumi from Canadian pop-artist Sean D’Anconia at Disney Vault 28. Not knowing a lot about Mayumi, I needed a crash course from Sean, who shared some of his inspirations and thoughts. “Mayumi is all about the celebration of a wildly irreverent, bubble-gum pink sparkling disco-ball inferno of cosplay kawaii culture,” says Sean. For those not in the know, “kawaii” means “cute” in Japanese. D’Anconia adds his own dynamic pop-fusion spin on this endearing sub-culture, which originally grew out of Tokyo’s Harajuku district. D’Anconia’s collection will include mixed-media original art, t-shirts, retro airline-style bags, and iPhone and iPad cases.
“Mavericks

Next to debut is Mavericks of Mayhem by Noah. A few months back we premiered the art right here on the Disney Parks Blog, but today I have your first official look at the new line including some of the tees, skate decks and more. Designed by Noah and presented by Disney Consumer Products, this edgy new lifestyle apparel line depicts some of our classic heroes, like Donald Duck, who’s looking fierce as he and Goofy prepare to go head to head against Disney’s official bad boys.

So if you’re looking for trouble, wreak havoc with Noah and the Mavericks of Mayhem, July 7 from 3 – 6 p.m. at D Street.

Hi! I LOVE Sean D’Anconia’s art; will some pieces be available at WDW in Orlando too? We’ll be there in August and would love to be able to purchase some…
