Video: making of a runDisney race costume

One of the things we love most about runDisney events is the costumes.  A big portion of the participants run in all sorts of spandex and wicking fabric, designed to look like a Disney character.  And half the fun of dressing up is the costume development process.  I've already shared with you my inclination towards less common characters so the decision-making process is typically lengthy for me.  In this video, we'll share the key steps of costume development and our outfits for the Disneyland Half Marathon!


What are your thoughts on running in costume?

  4. I know I told you on twitter already, but love these, they look so great! My sister and I were actually going to do the Tweedles until our group began to expand...then we needed a bigger group costume idea!

    I've never run in costume before, but I'm really excited for it!

  6. I love those costumes--I don't think costumes should be optional at Disney. It's so much more fun that way.

  13. So adorable!

    I love the idea of costumes, but I think I'd get so annoyed and end up ripping everything off.

    1. We always plan our costumes so that they are not a problem. However, we are both carrying headbands just in case the visors drive us crazy!
