Matching Family Outfits - Post Pictures!

Please tell me I'm not alone. I love dressing my family in matching outfits, and -believe it or not- my husband actually agrees and goes along with it!

Sometimes we wear matching or identical styles, and other days we just agree to wear the same color. In 2006, I even got our 18 person grand gathering to go along!

If you have the same notion... please post your matching family pictures here too. (craziness loves company!)

The Hawaiian outfits came from the Disney Store. My daughters "shirt" was a size 4T dress that she wore for years... the shorter it got, the better it looked with leggings.

I got away with it twice - once with our Mickey Tie Dyes at MK and then with Epcot shirts I made on the 25th anniv. Both times I got the pics and then DH changed!

DD and I also also matched in lime green tshirts w/ Tink on them our 1st MK day (rainy didn't want to do the mickey shirts that day).

Yes, I love when we coordinate! DH & DS12 know to ask what color day it is before they get dressed while on vacation! ...or they will have to change if for some strange reason they don't ask and read my mind wrong.

Blue Strip Day


Green Day... (On another green day DS thought it would be funny to wear his brown Green Day (the band) shirt... )


Red Day

We do it all the time too. We did it alot on our Disney cruises. I don't have those pictures loaded. But on our recent trip to WDW, I did it.



This is the only picture I can find right now. I have a bunch more, but my husband has probably hidden them from me.

Y'all look great! I voted "I would if DH would let me." I did get him to wear matching P&PP shirts I made (from the Creative DISigns thread on this board) for us while DD wore her princess gown. And I've made 9 matching shirts for the whole clan in May. The guys are already groaning!

I don't have pictures yet because our trip isn't until March 24th but I have 3 sets of shirts-one for MK,AK and DHS that I made with the help of the incredible designers here. I love how the shirts came out and I can't wait to wear them at WDW.

My husband doesn't really like the idea of it, but when we get home & he sees the pictures, he really likes it. I have to kinda remind him all the time.

My husband went along with it...1 day anyway :-)

Here we are - I wish I had made more matching shirts, we got so many favorable comments on them!

I even wore my lime green mickey 'stuff' and never saw anybody else!

Please tell me about the Dis Board Designers? What do they charge? Do they e-mail you the design for an iron on? How does it work?

I've always wanted to do the matching shirts. I've got time to start planning for our December trip. I think I can convince DH for at least one day of textile harmony!!

I found my design on the 'Just for Fun - Creative DISigns' board, not sure if you've checked there yet or not. I was able to drop it into my PrintShop software and add names and the year to the ears. Hope this helps (our pic is a few posts above)

I really want to make matching shirts for this trip. I know DH would never agree to it, but he's not going this time. ;-) I know my mother would go for it....but not so sure about my MIL and Aunt-in-law (for lack of a more concise term ;-)).
