I think the question I am asked most is “What was your favorite costume you have worn?”. This is such a hard question because most (not all) have been a lot of fun. My daughter and I discuss costume ideas and she picks what she would love me to dress as. Then I logistically think about if I can sew and create that costume. That is our process. Just the look on her face when she sees me in my costume that she helped create makes every race more amazing.
Here is a top 10 list of some of my favorites that I have worn:
2. White Rabbit
5. Maleficent (This was before the Angelina Jolie version)
6. Snow White
10. Mary Poppins
What are some of your favorite costumes you have worn or have seen people wear?
I get a lot of people asking about my costumes, so I thought it would be fun to write a couple posts talking about how I made them. It is really really easy, I promise. You can even hand sew and not use a machine if you want to.
Find a picture of what/who you want to dress as and than look at the key pieces. This is a picture I took of the actual costume from Mary Poppins. I got to see it up close and personal at the D23 Expo this year. It gave me even MORE motivation to dress as Mary Poppins for a race. The ribbons are faded, but it is still so beautiful.
First step in any running costume should be picking clothes that are comfortable to run in. For my Mary Poppins costume my shirt was a Lululemon Run: Swiftly Tech shirt. I than sewed on the lace and ribbons to give it the Mary Poppins Jolly Holiday look.
My skirt was a Lululemon Run: Pace Setter skirt. I did the same thing with the skirt and sewed on the lace and ribbons.
On the back there were already ruffles, so I just added a couple red bows.
I knew I needed a white hat, which was the tough part. I looked online, but didn’t really want to run 13.1 in a big huge hat. A little hat store near me happen to be going out of business and they had this small white hat and was 50% off. Perfect! This is what it looked like before I added the red bows and netting.
And here is everything I added.
I put hair clips in the hat because it just had the black elastic string and I knew that would chafe under my chin if I ran in it for that long.
I found the lace gloves at a costume store and just put red bows onto them.
The sash was red fabric that I cut to look like Mary’s sash and than added white puff paint for the details.
Voila! That was it! Relatively easy 🙂
