Newbies can just get the correct color shirt for each day without having to worry about spending extra money for a screen printed shirt. The order is set, no need to have anymore shirt discussions, except about the new shirt. It seems so easy, which is a bonus when we have so many people. And so many people posted and said they loved Mel's idea.
On the last day, the 'wear your favorite Disney shirt' didn't help me identify Divas, especially those that I only met briefly. I vote for sticking with our past shirts in a set order. Like Mel suggested.

I'm mid-50's, married almost 25 yrs (April 14), live in Modesto, CA and started here on the DIS when VMK began. DH will ONLY go to DLR during Halloween because of his love of Jack Skellington, although I did drag him this past New Years Day so I could see the Christmas Castle/decorations. I love EVERYTHING about Disney which comes in handy with my 3 grand kids.

I did go down for a VMK meet back in 2006 and this past October met with some more very LOVELY ladies I am disabled, so will use a scooter and of course have a GAC card, but the limit is 6 people ... hehehe

Finally, as you can tell by my name here, Tigger is my guy Growing up and having surgery every year, some times twice a year, I took on the attitude of having to bounce right on through life ... and I always will


Lyn



Hello Lyn! Welcome to the group! I love Halloween at DL too. I also have a cat named Tigger, and boy is he a bouncy little cat! LOL And I'm not that far from you either!

I agree I love ALL the shirts mel has designed. The first tink one we ordered from Zazzle and it was ok but NOTHING like Mel's lovely shirts. I don't think that white one would even fit me anymore as I have probably gained 60 lbs since that trip LOL. Heck maybe one day if I can ever get off my butt I will be able to fit in it again.

And the year with the pirate ones me and my lack of ability couldn't figure out the iron on so mom and I just made our own black jackets with a pirate princess decal and a diva one. That doesn't fit anymore either LOL.

I have worn the pink AND purple shirts around and I am sure I will wear the blue. I love them and always get compliments.
Maybe, if you come start dancing with me you'll be off your butt into that shirt again. LOL Either way, I thought you were beautiful.

Why pick just one?? We can layer like my daughter does:


Be nice, that's my baby girl in that photo. She rocks the neon colors like no one else can.
Well she is beautiful, but I think Jade could give her a run for her money in the neon department. LOL Our little fashionistas! I love them!

Okay: So far I think we have for the Pub Crawl

1) Stacie F. Leader
2) AmyOkraSue Attendee
3) Cheryl Attendee and legal counsel if needed
4) Capri Attendee

I am thinking this is shaping up rather nicely.

No need for a designated driver since we will be walking/skipping/staggering between venues. Win win win.
So the pub crawl will be around DCA/DTD/hotels area? LOL I could sign up for that!

Genius. Taupe leggings, alternative to pants.




Okra is next on the pole. Could I have my lights in orange?



So, I am going to have trouble keeping up with the Pub Crawl sign up sheet..maybe we can be listed on the front page. Oh, I am all aquiver with the excitement of it all.

Or, maybe I should just assume all 9 million of the Divas will be partaking.
I think, just for the pub crawl, everyone who goes should wear orange shirts with taupe tights/leggings....

Just to note, I will wear whatever shirts we pick out, I'm not picky. I bought the pink one to wear this year and would love to wear it again next year if it happens, if not I'll just wear it when I need a dose of happy. Pink isn't my favorite color but I associate happy things with the shirt so that makes it easy to wear it. I've loved all the designs Melody has done, she's so talented!! Which reminds me, I need to go send a PM to get the Pirate design.

For newbies who are interested, I think with someone's help, (LOL) that we could send you the pink DisDivaland image and the Carsland one. But the image has to opposite in order for the words to come out right. No clue on how to do that.
My printer reverses the design automatically when I select "t shirt transfer paper" as the medium.

Any committee that involves alcoholic beverages I need to be on.
Pencil me in as the VP. I can get personal Diva referrals/references if needed.

Orange? I could do orange. I agree with no taupe.

I can't wear the lanyards all day because of my neck, but they were SOOO cute!
Ditto on the shirt. Although I joined Beth in the "lame-o" group that didn't wear lime green. LOL

I wore my nametag in a lanyard pouch all weekend, but I wear a beaded lanyard cuz the fabric ones make me break out around the back of my neck which is most unpleasant. LOL

Before I lose the links - this is why I said that going with a scoop or V neck will limit our colors:

http://www.sanmar.com/sanmar-servlet...ch=Black&top=Y

http://www.sanmar.com/sanmar-servlet...%20Green&top=Y

Pretty slim pickins.

Fruit of the Loom has a new style that's slightly scooped with a decent selection of colors: http://www.sanmar.com/sanmar-servlet...&swatch=Purple

She has the beautiful skin tone to rock the neon colors. Some of us would look more like an escapee from the NBC version of Haunted Mansion... ROFL!

Thank you Kerri that was sweet! And oh boy could you see 70 ladies wearing bright orange shirts and taupe leggings?? Egads we would look like we ALL were walking around with no pants. I'm envisioning a child's pageant at school you know big pumpkin with tights underneath. YIKES!! Skeery!!

And Lisa I agree with you for those of us with pasty white skin the neon colors would also be quite scary. We would glow with the shirts or show or whatever.

Oh do not think of it that way. We would have very high visibility. Not much risk of being killed by hunters OR hit by oncoming traffic. See, 2 good things.

And, howz about when we ride the dark rides. Under some of the black lights---we would be rocking!!!!!!

Pub Crawl is more popular than sliced bread around here.

Woo hoo.

I did mention to you, Lisa, did I not, orange is mandatory to play.

For.Reals. I.Kid.You.Not.
