All Star Front Desk style. It was definitely not the worst costume in the world, and it was fairly comfortable. We also had the option to wear shorts or pants.

My Expedition: Everest outfit. We could choose to wear pants, a parka (when it was cold it was a blessing), a turtleneck underneath the shirt. I miss this outfit so much, lol.

Are the costumes mostly made out of comfortable materials? Cotton?

They're not that uncomfortable, but they're definitely not made of natural fibers. The newer pieces will be stiff, whereas if you get ones that have been washed millions of times, then it'll be softer.

Costumes! My favorite topic!

World of Disney in Downtown Disney (I'm on the far right)
These costumes were not comfy! But I think it was mainly because I could never find my size. Some of the pants were old and very recycled (some said epcot on the tags). The # that was supposed to stand for the length, meant nothing. For the women, the style assumes the ladies have small waists and HUGE butts and hips. I always said if I wanted to steal something, all I had to do was stuff it down my pants. Haha! I found 2 pairs that fit "well," I kept them and washed them myself. The shirts in Disney are made "unisex", so if you have a bigger bust area, you have to go up a size in shirts so they won't gap.
When I first started, the trainers told us: "You'll be working so hard, you won't care what you are wearing!" It was so true.


When I first started, they didn't have enough costumes! I had to get pants that were too big and too short. And my shirt was 2 Sizes big and I had to get long sleeves in August. I found it pretty humorous!

(BTW, that is a lovely Vista Way couch in the background...before we slip covered it!)

Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique in Downtown Disney
It was comfy for the most part. It was awesome because the costume was made to fit women's curves. The elastic in the sleeves bothered me a bit. The vest was heavy and could be hot some days when working in the back stock area. My roommate worked in the Boutique at MK and had the same skirt and shiney shirt. Only her vest was a blue shade and styled slightly different.


Look how well we made over this princess!:

Hope nobody minds if I crash the party. I was on the CP back in 1991. I worked tickets at EPCOT Center, as it was known back then. Our costumes were definitely not comfortable. They were 100% polyester, or at least they felt like it.
Here I am at International Gateway. This costume was the lesser of the two evils.


Here are some other cast members hanging out in the front office. Take note of the spiffy, silver jacket.


Here is a lady I worked with who was super skinny. I drew an arrow to the seams that ran down the front (and back) of the thigh. They were soooo unflattering to those of us that had a little meat on our bones.

Bwahahaha..... I just checked out a new costume today and I was surprised that two parts of it were only 65% polyester...the third part of the costume was 80%! It's like wearing an outfit made out of a paper grocery bag, lol. But I do look pretty magical in it!

Anyhow... here's my Main St. costume... including a mens vest b/c by the time I got it long enough in the womens it was also wide enough for three of me. With the hat, I was a conductor on the train. Without the hat I worked PAC.

Really?? Who? My Fall 06 roomies have been my favorite roomies so far.

Did we work together doing Ops or Entertainment? I loved picking up PAC shifts. In fact, I still have some friends there. And I miss Character Attendant so much (I just got back from working).
