I love this!

I have no idea if we're (BF and me) are going to dress up. We've already got two dresses and two suits to travel with, so if we do it'll be something simple. We've got one or two ideas but nothing concrete yet.

I've been twice before though with no costume and still had an awesome time.

What about pins?

Has anyone just worn a Disney Halloween pin on their shirt?

DH and I are not really the costume type...but I don't want to be a total party pooper. LOL

Not sure I could actually get DH to wear a themed t-shirt either. BUT, I was thinking a halloween pin might do the trick.

We aren't pin "traders" so not sure if that will just confuse others if we are just wearing one on our regular shirts.

Thoughts?

I think that would work really well. Or even a fringe of shells or something similar. I think the fact that it's a Disney character helps. Let's face it - the rule is really to keep the "skanky" factor down. LOL!

I think a pin would be fine. And the fact that it will just be one pin will clue people in that you're not trading.

Though you don't have to get a costume or shirt that is over-the-top Halloweenie. How about a Perry the Platypus shirt and have your DH wear a fedora? You could wear white shorts/skort and a red top and say you're Candace.

Or a simple T-shirt. Yours could say "Who needs a costume when I'm already a Princess?" and his could say "Worst Halloween Costume Ever". Have fun with it!

We are also going as the Tangled crew, so I would love to see your costumes as they come together! I can't sew and am having a heck of a time finding someone to make these.

I found a site that helped me find some items. For Mother Gothel, I actually ordered a Lady Guinevere Renaissance Maiden.
It is not exact but definitely close enough that you know who it is. I actually ordered Supa' Freakin Wig from Amazon which isn't too bad. I didn't want to spend a lot but you get the idea.
Probably just wear black ballet flats so comfortable for walking.
My DD keeps telling me I need a basket.
This site gave a lot of ideas.

Let me know what you think of my idea.

We're going as Saints fans. Who dat!

We didn't want anything too cumbersome because it's going to be so hot when we go. Plus, we already have all the stuff needed to be saints fans, so there's no extra $$$!

We've got tix for the Sept 20th party - and got ressies for the whole family at The Pirate's League that afternoon! So, I'm thinking we'll all dress up as princesses. Kidding, kidding - it's a pirate's life for us!

I've got that site bookmarked - it's a great reference!
And yes I agree with the basket. Think about it...it will be great for TOTing.
I think you will look great and people will definitely know who you are. My problem is that I am super-anal about being accurate...I am like the people who get into cosplay I guess.

I went to Hancock fabrics yesterday and bought a pattern and some beautiful deep red fabric and trims. I called my mom and told her like it or not she's coming over this weekend to help. My mom has made a few things in her day...when I was a kid she made me an ET costume. She's just sorta messy and gets confused but I hope between the two of us we can get it done...I have meticulous attention to detail and she knows how to work the sewing machine. LOL

That's where I found someone to make Flynn's vest. I am paying double her normal price though to have it modified to be more accurate, and a bit more detailed.
I found someone a while back who was willing to work with me on the dress but then they sorta dropped off the face of the Earth. Plus it makes me nervous since I want my dress to fit and feel like I need someone in person measuring me, or there to modify it if it doesn't fit just right. I think that gaping neckline will be a pain.
