Thanks so much for joining in! I don't know why they think the bouffant do looks good, but try as I might they won't make it spikey for me. But the important thing is that Claire loves it.

I prefer to bring our own as well. In 2008 we had an appointment and I bought the Aurora dress a few days prior for her to wear. (I loved that dress back then, which they no longer make). But my mistake was making the appointment for the last day and Claire was so tired and cranky and only 3, that when we got there she cried and we ended up not doing it. I wasn't going to force her. Of course she regretted it afterwards. In 2009 we brought our own dress and I loved how special she felt. She almost got a little more attention for having a unique dress.
We have since sold that dress and the Aurora, both to the same person and she is taking her grandaughter in a few weeks. It was sad to sell them, but I know they will get great use and make special memories for her as well.

I tried to persuade her to go with blonde before we went...and thank goodness she listened.
At least the blond bubble didn't look EXACTLY like cotton candy.

I have been waiting to see your bbb pics. Omg...amazing! That dress is beyond beautiful. I have a dress for my dd... But I am not sure I want to use it... I keep thinking it needs to be an "official" wdw dress. Yours isn't , right? I think it looks way better than the Disney ones I have been seeing. Claire is quite the princess...and while I agree with you on the puff ball... It really is cute on her , which also makes me realize that if my dd goes with it....it probably will be fine.

Thanks. No my dress is not official. I have come to like the dresses that are NOT official. It kind of makes your child more unique and stand out. I think the only park official one we had was the Tiana dress we had on the cruise.

Time for the Big reveal!



For those who are not familiar with BBB, They never let the child see themselves in the mirror the whole time. So until she turns Claire to face the mirror she really doesn’t know what she looks like. I always love the look on her face when she sees it for the first time. Photopass can usually capture it pretty well too.















































Claire was VERY Happy with her result!!

She looks beautiful and I love her expression in the reveal! My DD is so bashful that she wouldn't smile like that.

Got a question on the puff ball..... will they at least not make it so big if you ask them to? In all the pictures that I have seen, it looks like they just poof it up too high. I think I could deal with it if they didn't try to frizz it up so high. I know you said they wouldn't leave it spiked, but I wonder if they would smoosh it down some? I know that's the style that DD will want if we go though because she wants "long hair like Rapunzel". And it will turn out fine even if they make it sky high. Claire looks like a doll in hers, so I know it will be ok. I think the crown makes it look really good. I'll have to remember that. I was planning to use the little tiara that she got at BBB last time, but the crown seems more balanced with the poof ball.

Thanks. I don't know if they will push it down or not, but you can after.

Claire looks so happy & Princess-esy! (yes, thats a word!) I supose if the girls can't look in a mirror, it would be a big suprise!

Kadence just looked through and with a big gasp, said " she's so beautiful"
She askes me, how much does that cost? Can I do that on our next trip?

I may have to seriously look into it for Sept. I mean how much longer is she going to be in the princess stage. She's 7 now, by the time we go in late 2012/ early 2013 she'll be 9! She just might think she's too old

Ahhhhhhhhhh.......... SO pretty! Aren't you glad you got to do this again??? I mean even with limited park time.......... the park will still be there years from now. But this chance goes SO fast. I'm really surprised Katie still wants to go. For most, it's over much sooner........


Which leads me to Carey.........
