Clothing for bounding, cosplay and costumes - for ALL sizes. Who do you want to be today?

NerdBound was born out of a desire to make clothing for people who want to create outfits emulating their favorite characters. Whether it be for Halloween, a trip to Disney or other theme park, Comic-Con or just because, lots of people enjoy adding a little fun to their wardrobe!

Let's face it though, how often do you see a Snow White yellow skirt for sale? So that's where NerdBound comes in. We create and sell clothing in comfortable designs and materials meant to be worn all day at the theme park or wherever you go, in colors common in the fandom world, but maybe not so common in stores.

Character Bounding and Theme Park Rules

We do our best to provide functional clothing which remains within the character bounding and costume rules of theme parks (especially Disney parks). Everyone on our team is a former Disneyland or Walt Disney World Cast Member. We take the safety of current cast members- and you- very seriously.

We will occasionally make clothing a shade or two off and there are limitations on how close we are willing to go in reproducing cast member costumes for attractions, face characters and entertainment.

We want everyone to have fun and for bounding to be a fun and acceptable way to enjoy our favorite characters for a long time to come!
