Making Costumes

Running in style is of the utmost importance. Oh sure, you can go run in regular clothes but that’s what you did for the 100 miles you ran leading up to the race. Maybe add a flashy pink or a serene shade of blue but come on, you’ve got to at least wear something stylish and there are many races out there where you can get yourself into something fun.

Sparkle Skirts – There are two different Sparkles in the realm of the running skirt. One is Team Sparkle the other is Sparkle Skirts (you may know Leah Powell from there). Their skirts differ. I have one from here that I LOVE (Yes it’s the Minnie Sparkle Tech) and wear everyday to run.

  1. It’s always interesting to see what people come up with for costumes and part of what makes runDisney races so fun. I love your Haunted Mansion costume and the way you brought in the Ghost Host’s tag line to tie it in. I always love to see the creativity people bring to the table and that’s one of the more unique ones I’ve come across. Awesome job!
