I have been a fan of Del Sol products since I bought one of their color-changing tees on my trip to Alaska. It was the first time I had seen anything from their company, but after that I actively sought out products from them. So, I was happy when Del Sol offered me a chance to share their Disney and Marvel lines with you.
If you’re not yet familiar with Del Sol, their products… everything from nail polish and jewelry to hats and apparel… have an element that changes color when it comes in contact with sunlight. No matter what your age, there’s just something really fun about watching a design come to life before your eyes or seeing the looks you get when your sunglasses change color in the sun. It’s just a really fun line of products!
They are now offering Disney and Marvel products. I received a kid’s Mickey tee for my son Xander and an Avengers tee for my husband Ross. Xander got to wear his Captain Mickey shirt to school for his birthday party. All of the other kids were so excited by his really cool shirt. Ross’ reactions are a little more low-key, but he also loved the design of his shirt. It’s not too over-the-top, but it still draws attention when it changes color.
The color change is definitely more striking in the Captain Mickey shirt. It was the first time I have seen one of Del Sol’s shirts change completely on the front. It’s more often a smaller element of the design. The color change here was also much darker than the Marvel Avengers tee. In the photos I shared here, both tees were out in the same sunlight for the same amount of time. I was a little disappointed with how subtle the color change was in the Marvel tee. In my experience, the color changes are usually more noticeable and it appeared that way in Del Sol’s product shots. The color effect fades in about 10 minutes once removed from sunlight.
The shirt quality is top-notch. The Mickey Mouse tee felt quite a bit thicker than the Marvel Avengers tee…. probably because the whole front has a color change element. Both tees are very soft and comfortable to wear. Both washed well. Washing instructions are pretty simple… cold wash, dry on low, and no iron. I recommend turning it inside out (as with any tee that has a design on it) to make the design last longer.
Pros: Fun color-changing effect. Great designs including well-known Disney and Marvel characters. Quality-made tees.
Cons: Wish the colors were consistently as distinct as in product shots.
