    After making the girls costumes (and not being happy with them) I went an alternate route for costumes.

    DD Violet who is two is going to be Minnie Mouse. I bought this from the Disney Store on sale over the summer for $20.00:

    DD Ava who is four is going as a "Sailor" Minnie Mouse. She was in a dance recital this past summer and I had to buy her an $80 costume, so I am going to do a few modifications (like add Minnie Ears to the Sailor Hat) and presto :wizard: a costume for the party! Here are a couple of pics from her dance recital:

    & DS is going to be a Jedi. We actually bought his costume last year after Halloween and got it at Target for $8!!

    I'm really getting excited for our vacation! Especially after seeing all the pics from the MNSSHP this year!

    Great costumes!!:thumbsup2
    I still have to get costumes done for my kids, and the t-shirts that I think dh and I will wear instead of a costume. I'm not much of a halloween person, don't really like it at all, but I am looking forward to the MNSSHP....I guess halloween takes on a new light when in WDW! :rotfl:

    Cute costumes... and even better bargains! :thumbsup2

    Your oldest DD could also use her "sailor" costume to be Donald Duck, LOL! That's who I thought of when I first saw the pic... then read you were going to turn the costume into Minnie Mouse. Either one would be darling!

    I'm not a huge halloween person either. Especially scary halloween, but I think that's why I'm looking forward to the party so much. I bought myself a shirt from Target that has Mickey & Minnie on it holding their pumpking buckets for trick or treating. It's pretty cute.

    I tried to get her to go for Donald, and that was out of the question. You see Donald is a boy, and she is a girl, and that just was not going to happen. :rolleyes1
