Costume Construction: An Introduction

Running at Disney and running in costume are almost synonymous!  I've worn some sort of costume for pretty much every Disney race, so I thought it would be fun to share some tips!  Enter a new series on Disney Runs in the Family: Costume Construction!

Disclaimer--I am NOT a seamstress in any way!  I don't even own a sewing machine.  All of my costumes are more crafty and I really try to keep it simple and cheap.  I stress cheap because you are going to be running and sweating in these costumes!  Often, at least a few pieces get thrown away right after the race.  Sometimes, I've even thrown pieces away on the course if they start to bother me. 

Now, on the other hand, my mom DOES sew, so I've begged (more than) a few times for race costumes (often at the last minute), and she comes through with some great costumes!  She'll be contributing as well, so I guess you can decide which ones fit your ability (hmmmm...should I have asked her first?  I'm sure she'll share, right?).  Oh, and of course Chris and Katie have done some super cute couples costumes.  (This counts as asking them too, right?)

Stay tuned!  I'll be digging through the closet for my favorites.  Hope it inspires you to go all out for your next Disney (or non-Disney) race!
