We were there 9/28 & 9/30. My daughter and friend did different costumes each night, mine stayed the same. I wish I had some close ups to show the detail on my dress...I was proud of all my bead and paint work.

Oh no no...Rapunzel, Briar Rose, and Merida were all purchased from custom sellers. My Giselle gown started as a wedding gown I ordered from ebay, then I spent a month altering it, making it longer, making it HUGE, adding all the detail work, etc - but I had a "base" to start with at least. It was HUGE...not easy to navigate at a sold out party at all and when I did ride a ride, I got a whole seat to myself, lol.

This is us in 2010.



My wife (left) made the matching t-shirts. Over the course of the night, my SiL (middle) and I (right) bought different pirate themed items and started wearing them.


This is us in 2011.



My wife was pregnant so she wanted to dress in these costumes.

Thanks - Yours were great too! DH has been Jack Sparrow for the last 3 years, took some arm twisting to get him and DS to be jellyfish for a switch!

Where did you find your tops? We haven't been able to find ones like that. Just plain ordinary t-shirts. Those would be ok but it's just not "it".

Thanks!!
I ordered them from L.L. Bean.

Those pictures are AWESOME! I love all the princess costumes. Were all of them custom made, or just yours?

WOW I'm speechless on the princess costumes. You guys look AMAZING. I would kill for the talent and patience to make those! I'm surprised they let you walk around the park, I've heard if costumes are too good and you look too much like the real character, they ask you to change, and you guys look top notch!!

This is my BF and I, Jack Sparrow and Elisabeth Swann (second movie). We were also with my little sister and her BF, who went as white outfit Padme (everyone called her Leia) and Jedi Anakin.

Aren't those girls crazy talented?
I started with a wedding dress that was "inspired" by Giselle's dress and then I spent over a month decorating, adding things (like sleeves and length and 100s of feet of ruffles!), and trying to make it as "Giselle like" as possible. I think I doubled the weight of it with everything I added, lol.
I wadded into a tiny ball to fit it into a small carry on sized suitcase to bring it home...and then all the luggage got rained on at the airport...and I have yet to take it out and look at it. Sorta scared....have nowhere to put it...think it is going to be laid to rest now.

"Crazy talented" indeed! I am very creative, but would rather go to the dentist than sew up a costume. That's what my mom is for!
I just wish that she would finish it because our trip is tomorrow, and I'm already anxious.
