FALSE

ORIGIN

A video purportedly showing a woman wearing a color changing dress at Tokyo Disneyland has been circulating online since at least June 2016, when it was posted to the Instagram account of @in_motion_lulu. The Instagram user did not provide any information about the dress, other than stating that the video showed “fairy magic” at Tokyo Disneyland.

This particular Instagram user posts nothing but videos from Disneyland, and on 26 August 2016 she posted a second video of the dress appearing to change color on a whim:

One reason to be skeptical of this video is that it didn’t originate with an official Disney source. Also, there is only one source for videos of the color-changing dress. If it truly existed, there would be multiple videos of it circulating on social media from various Disney fans. Yet all of the videos we’ve encountered can be traced back to the same source: @in_motion_lulu on Instagram.

The real proof that this dress at Tokyo Disneyland is not real comes from a third video posted by the same Instagram user, which shows the true (and static) color of this dress:

The same women in the same dress can be seen on the float in the video displayed above, yet her dress does not change color. It appears that the “fairy magic” that was captured at Disneyland Tokyo was the result of nothing more than creative digital editing.
