As soon as I found out I would be running the Disney Princess Half Marathon, I called my “Super Crafty Sister” as we like to call her. She is a middle school art teacher and is one of the most creative people I know. If you’ve ever seen photos of the Princess Half, you know that people dress in all sorts of costumes.
I am determined to be one of those people this year.
Just Google “disney princess running costumes” and you’ll see all sorts of inspiration photos. Not to mention what you can find on Pinterest. Here are a few of my favorites.
1. SO MANY OPTIONS!
Seriously – how amazing is this girl?
I’m a really big fan of the Mrs. Incredible costume. While obviously not a “Princess”, I feel like I can really relate to her, especially now that I’m a mom! But I don’t think I would be a fan of running in that mask…
2. Snow White DIY Inspiration
This girl made a pretty amazing costume if you ask me. I’m loving the sleeves!
Then again, maybe I just want my abs to look like that in my outfit…
3. Creative AND Unique!
While again, not a Princess, that Captain Hook costume is pretty amazing! (Then again, these girls were running the Tinkerbell Half, not the Princess Half…)
But it just goes to show that there is just something about having a little creativity!
So now I’m left with the dilemma – which Princess do I want to be? Or do I really even need to stick to just princesses? If I had to choose, I think my favorite princess would be Belle – but I haven’t seen an inspiration photo for her that I really like yet. Maybe that’s because Super Crafty Sister hasn’t attempted it yet?
Obviously, the key to a costume for the Princess Half is functionality. I will be running 13.1 miles in it after all!
But if we could combine function with some creativity…
I’m hoping we can come up with something amazing!
What would you dress up as for the Princess Half? Do you have any other ideas for me?
