I made out costumes run-able, so we both started with our running circle skirts and tank tops. Then, of course, I had to make everything princess-like.
I have to say I'm really proud of Kris's Snow White top. My first addition was the pouf-y sleeves. I made the red parts of the sleeves and attached them first, then attached the sleeves to the top. I was kinda shocked that it worked on the first try. Then I added a gold strip down the front and, you can't see it too well, but there was a white collar and a red cape. Now, I know Edna Mode has issues with capes, but Kris told me she needed one, and I was happy to ablige.
Add the red headband and she was one cute Snow White.
Then came my Cinderella outfit. This, I have to say was a total winging-it type situation, which if you know me is my nightmare. I somehow managed to make the skirt overlays and then attach the sleeves to the tank too, after 3 tries. Now I have to admit that this didn't look like anything as crazy good as Kris's outfit when I was done, but it was late and the race was almost here, so I figured it would work.
Now this costume really came together with the accessories. I added a headband, a black velvet choker and the crowning touch was a sock bun. I just added some big ball earrings and I really started to feel like Cinderella.
I gotta admit that making the costumes is half the fun of these races. And I just love making the costumes for me and Kris. We have tons more costume ideas, so I guess that means we have to keep doing these RunDisney races. And the other part of the fun is running with my best friend! Can't beat that.
