I’ve been a fan of Trolls since I first got a sneak peek at the movie during CinemaCon, so I was really looking forward to last month’s trip to the DreamWorks Animation Campus to preview the upcoming Netflix Original Series Trolls: The Beat Goes On!, which follows the continuing adventures of Poppy, Branch and friends. And from the moment I arrived at DreamWorks, I was greeted by a scene as colorful and fun as the world of the Trolls!
We were treated to a dessert spread that truly made us feel like kids in a candy store!
Now, if you’ve known me for very long, then you know that I love color, so the theme delighted me! I arrived at the event in my usual professional attire, but I suspected that a Trolls event would probably be bright and cheerful, so I actually packed a backup “Fun” dress in my bag, just in case. And when I was handed a pink trolls wig to wear, I knew that my other dress would be entirely appropriate, so I actually ducked into the ladies’ room and made a quick change into this:
This doughnut dress is actually the same dress my bridesmaids wore at my wedding!
After making some fun new friends, I had the chance to try my hand at a little cupcake decorating and made my own Poppy cupcake!
Side note: I naively attempted to pack this cupcake into my suitcase for the trip home, and realized my mistake when I found smashed pink icing inside my suitcase at LAX. Only I would end up with a conservative business suit covered in pink frosting! 😆
There was even a cotton candy machine on site that spun it into shapes ranging from hearts to Troll hair!
But this was just the beginning of my journey into the glittery world of the Trolls – during my time at DreamWorks, I had an opportunity to interview the voice cast, go behind-the-scenes with the animators and music composers, and even try my hand in the recording booth doing a voice for Poppy! I’ll be sharing all of the fun with you here on MomStart, so stay tuned for more of my Troll-tastic adventures!
Trolls: The Beat Goes On! premieres on Netflix on January 19th!
