I'm so in the Halloween spirit now!

Thanks to all who have shared photos..loving all of them!
We're going the 19th as well! (Don't tell, but I'm skipping two of my law school classes so I can get in early!) We're going Peter Pan themed, so if you see Peter, Wendy, Capt Hook, an insanely tall Smee, Tinkerbell, maybe a Tiger Lily, and possible some Alice people acting as though we were 6, that would be us!

I'm going to be Wendy, and have the fabric for my dress, just no set pattern yet. I've found some good free ones online, but they seem like a bit of a hassle to put together because they're not totally perfect. I'm debating free hassle versus a $6 one online (including the shipping!). Right now, I'm leaning toward just paying the $6 and having the pattern be almost perfect.

I LIKE altering patterns and I still say pay the $6. Your time is valuable and so is your fabric.

Yes, Cafe Orleans used to serve breakfast, but they don't anymore. Either that or it's just a seasonal thing that they only do during peak times. I personally haven't seen them open for breakfast in about two years.

You can see the breakfast menu on allears:

I'm pretty much going that route too. I would prefer it to be a little less, but it's much better than the regular price of $15 at the fabric store. Since I'm pretty picky on how authentic my costumes are, I'll probably go with the pattern. I trust a fabric store pattern more than one off the internet too.

That sounds about right, our trip when we had breakfast there was in 2007.
Thanks! Now I know I wasn't going crazy
Thanks for the link to the menu too! Mardi Gras Vegetable Scramble was the meal I was talking about! YUM!

I don't remember if anyone posted the Rapunzel meet and greet costume picture? I'm assuming they'll have different actors in the parks, and I read somewhere that Tiana's original costume changed between the first pictures and the park version, so Rapunzel's might too.

It's my understanding that JoAnn's always offers patterns for half off, I think it is (so the $15.99 pattern is only $8.00). And if you're lucky you can get them for 99 cents or $1.99 (they have sales periodically). Of course, time is a factor here!

Fabric store patterns are generally solid, but it does depend on what you're going for. For instance, if you want truly authentic for most time periods, they shouldn't have zippers, yet many (most?) commercial patterns will feature them. (And in fairness, I imagine the dresses the Disney princesses wear in the park have some metal-toothed magic fasteners in them!) So you can probably get a great look with those patterns, but they may not be historically right.

I've used free Internet patterns and generators to make numerous chemises (two I wear with dresses, not just for costumes), as well as skirts and even a 1600s-1700s-style corset/"set of stays". I've also made a nice costume with a pattern purchased on the Internet, but I'm sure there are some bad patterns out there.

http://www.gbacg.org/great-pattern-review/index.html has reviews of and tips for many patterns (Internet-based and not).

Awesome! I wish I knew how to sew! I can barely sew a button on. I'll be on the look out for a gang of Peter Pan folks with a Wendy that looks guilty for ditching law school classes!

That is so cool. I hope you'll post a pic of yourself in the costume when it's all done, I'd love to see it!

Hope your Alice costume arrives soon!
Ok, why does everyone have a mom that can make them a costume? You guys are so lucky for that. I love Belle, she's my favorite princess. I'm thinking I might be Belle next Halloween. It's never too early to start costume planning. I think I need to learn to sew.

OK, this totally makes up for them not having an assortment of Nightmare desserts this year.
