I don't think I ever posted what we had decided on; we're going as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and his girlfriend Ortensia. My daughter scored an Oswald ear hat for me at a gamer's convention so I talked DH into wearing them.

Tinker Bell's dress is a little short. And by a little, I mean "a lot". No one needs to see that much of my leg! So right now I'm looking at other options. I found a couple ghostly costumes that make me think of Haunted Mansion ghosts so I might go with one of those.

For the first party I'm being lazy and wearing my Chip kigurumi. I'm super excited to wear it while getting my picture taken with Chip and Dale before the party starts. It's not overly warm, but if I do get too hot I can just take it off. It takes up surprisingly little room in a backpack.

I don't have a picture of me wearing mine, but I have the product shot.



The only downside is that the tail is really low so I'll probably end up getting it dirty. Plus when I sit down I have to make sure the tail is arranged right otherwise it ends up between my legs and looks a little... well you probably get the idea.
before even reading your post i saw the pic and thought "i would get some fishing line and a needle and fix that tail to stick straight up!" lol. i had to do that for a skunk costume for my son years ago

We will be there the 5th and the 11th.

Dh and I will be wearing something lightweight from our Steampunk garb and the kids will be: Angelica (Pirates of the Caribbean), Peter Pan & our 12 year old will be Evil Dr. Pork Chop a la the Disneybound website.

We dress up every year that we go and have had so much fun! The 2nd night I will likely be wearing my Mayor of Halloweentown costume...it's always a huge hit!

I'll be Bert-as-chimney-sweep. I just finished putting everything together last night and so far it seems to be a hit among my pals!

Here I am, giving my costume a test run:
What did you make your umbrella from? Looks really real!
