Haunted Mansion Handbag

September 5th, 2013 by Cobwebs

HandbagI have never been particularly interested in high-end handbags, instead preferring cheap satchels I’m not afraid of scuffing. But this…this is tempting.

The Disney Parks blog just announced the release of a new Haunted Mansion-inspired handbag by Dooney & Bourke. The company worked with Disney artists to design the bag, which includes a grey-and-black exterior palette, a striking red interior, the iconic wallpaper pattern, and a hang tag featuring the attraction logo. The result has a marvelously spooky vibe, but it’s subtle enough that it wouldn’t raise eyebrows in more mundane settings.

The bag retails for $330 and will be available at locations in Disneyland and Walt Disney World on September 13. The announcement doesn’t indicate whether it will also be sold in non-US Disney parks, but apparently it will be available online “later this fall.”
