Virtual Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend Blog Hop - Race Costumes


I am so honored to be a part of the Virtual Wine & Dine Marathon Weekend Blog Hop!  One of the things that set a runDisney event apart is the wonderful costumes you see from the runners.  Some simple, some extravagant, some bought, some made by the runner themselves, all FUN!

As fun as the costumes can be, you need to remember you will be running so be sure to remember to wear clothes that are comfortable and practical.  It's no fun running a race  in a scratchy, itchy or uncomfortable costume.  

 Here are my top five ideas for the Wine & Dine Half Marathon Weekend.

5. Chef   It is the Wine and Dine Half after all.  If you're inventive you could also go as food (grapes, cheese, ext) or as a bottle or glass of wine.


4. Princess - A runDisney Princess is expected at each and every runDisney event and this one is no exception. Dress as your favorite princess and you can't go wrong.




3. Anything Glow-in-the-Dark This us an evening event so glowing is a fun option!



2. Secondary Characters I think the half tutu would be an awesome beginning to a Kevin from UP! costume.  There are lots of other secondary characters to choose from(Flounder, one of the mice from Cinderella, a Good Fairy from Sleeping Beauty),  use your imagination.


1. Fab Five Choose your favorite; Mickey, Minnie, Donald (the pictured costume is adorable), Goofy or Pluto. If you want to stand out in the crowd I wouldn't choose Mickey or Minnie - although finding what you need to dress as them would be the easiest. 


Tutus are prominent attire at any runDisney event so I wanted to include a tutorial for all of the DIYers out there.  



My last advice is HAVE FUN!! That's one of the things that makes runDisney events so popular. From the photo ops to the awesome costumes to the camaraderie. Be sure to share your pics with us on Facebook, Twitter and feel free to share them here too

Again, I want to thank Didi and Meranda for hosting this blog hop.  Be sure to stop by the other blogs for more Wine and Dine Half Marathon Weekend fun!!


Have a Magical Day!

  1. I told myself that I would never run in a tutu because I thought it would be uncomfortable and bulky, and here I am planning to make one for Wine & Dine! :P When it comes to runDisney, priorities change, LOL

    1. Darn it, I knew you would catch me stealing your great idea, I'm sorry Tricia. ;) I love the Donald costume too, I really need to step up my game for the Princess Half in February.

  3. I think a costume is a must for any Disney race ( or at least Disney inspired attire). I didn't dress in costume for the TOT but I did have a glow in the dark Mickey Head on my shirt...lol!

  4. Look at you! You have some terrific runDisney suggestions Donna; I especially love Kevin from UP!. After all these races, I am embarrassed to admit that I have never made my own tutu; you have proven that it is SO darned easy to do with your included video. The wheels are now turning for Disney Princess Half Marathon Weekend...!! Thank you so much for joining the hop pal- the honor is only ours!
