A lot of people asked me this, and it was actually super simple! I found a wooden dowel rod at a craft store and spray-painted it black.

I folded the ends back a little so I wouldn't take anyone's eye out and used some more electrical tape to make a 'grip' to hold onto so the paint wouldn't rub off all over my hands. All in all, I think it cost me about $5-6.

I thought it might be awkward to hold onto all night, but it was actually pretty nice to have. I had slung my candy bag over it (hobo style) and carried it around like that all night. It was a little awkward to handle during the parade and fireworks, though, since I didn't want to block anyone's view--I ended up putting it pipecleaner-side-down on the ground.

I got a ton of compliments on it all night from guests, Cast, and characters and had an incredible amount of fun--all I needed was a Mary!

I decided to go as Merida. I've got a green dress, red wig, and a brown belt. I haven't decided what to do about the footwear. I have brown boots, but I'm afraid those might be uncomfortable to walk in after a while. I may just get a pair of black tennis shoes. Nobody is really going to look at my feet anyway, right?

Received my costume by mail today, talk about down to the wire we leave Friday. We are attending MNSSHP on October 4th. I originally wanted to be Ursula or Maleficent but when I went to the costume store to try on the official Disney licensed ones I was so disappointed. They were so cheap looking and poorly made. They looked nothing like the pics online. Two years ago I bought a really nice deluxe Mad Hatter costume and loved the quality so this year I seen that they had a beautiful Snow White one from the same company. The problem was only one store had it in stock the rest were on back order so I had to have it shipped from Arizona. Being a Canadian I was so scared it would get stuck at customs and I would have no costume I am debating on getting a wig, worried I'll be too hot and bothered by it.

My husband didn't pull the panel out when doing up the corset so my bra is showing will make sure it is proper for the woohoo:

My daughter is going to be Minnie Mouse and husband will be a pirate

This is the costume I wanted but when I looked for it everyone was sold out, so I plan on something else. Now they have it but DH will kill me if I buy this costume too. Plus he doesn't want to be a prince . Maybe I can convince him to do it ...
