Making Another Run Disney Costume: Show Your Disney Side

Since the WDW Marathon is this weekend, it finally hit me that I better get my butt in gear and start working on my costumes/outfits for the Princess Half Marathon weekend.   That weekend will be here before we know it!
 
 
And so since we will not be participating in the WDW marathon this year ( but you can read about our time at the 2013 WDW Marathon HERE) I thought it was a perfect time to get started with my sewing ( not too mention the weather has been very conducive to staying indoors lately).
 
This is what I have come up with so far.
If you remembered my race costume from Wicked this past year, you may remember some of these pieces. Yup, I recycled them. The "Cinderella" is actually a patch. This way I can take it off and use the shirt over again for another costume.  And I was please with the skirt that I made for Mickey's Jingle Jungle 5k race, so I made this one in blue the same way. I thought about getting a tiara to wear, but then thought I would wear my blue Run Disney Sweaty band instead, since I hadn't wore that in a race yet!  I'll be wearing this outfit for the Royal Family 5k race!
 
I'll be running in Pink for the Enchanted 10K.
 
This outfit is a work in progress. I suppose it might end up being a Sleeping Beauty costume, what do you think?  I need to find a different top to go with it though. I also have a pink running outfit planned for the half marathon on Sunday, so I'm not quite sure which pieces I will use for the 10k and which I will use for the Half.

So there you have. This is my progress so far. Lacey is working on a pretty cute costume as well, and I think my mom is working on one too, so I'll have more pictures to post as the month goes on!

What projects are you currently working on?

    1. I think that's what it will eventually become. I just need to find the right top to embelish. I don't think this one is the right one!

  10. I love them! Love the pink costume... pink is my favorite color (as I'm sure you could tell from all the pink on my blog). I'm not sure I'm running in costume. I'll probably pick a little mermaid theme again this year and just wear the color scheme of the little mermaid. Last year, I wore a purple tank and green shorts. Not creative, but I was comfy!
