I was a member of the D23 community for a few years when it first began in 2009. I hung on but soon it just became an expense I couldn’t justify at the level I was buying into. I did enjoy the printed magazines and of course, the wonderful perks that came with each new year’s membership!
In 2011, I received this membership document featuring none other than Donald Duck in full Cosplay:
Mr. Iger and Mickey Mouse himself welcomed me to the club. As we take a look at each costume that Donald is wearing, let’s note whether he is pleased or peeved:
It’s a no brainer that he wouldn’t like having to dress as his archrival (and best friend) Mickey Mouse! But who knew that the duck was such a sci-fi fan?
Sometimes he looks neither pleased nor peeved, but rather a bit bewildered! But he’s back to his hap hap happy self for the rest of his fashion show:
But perhaps he’s just a little too happy to be cavorting around as Peter Pan?
I didn’t keep this document because it will ever be worth anything. But the artwork is so precious and funny it’ll have a place in my collection for years to come!
