In Which Jenn Reveals Her Upcoming Race Costumes

Wine & Dine Half Marathon

I am unlikely to ever be one of those really elaborately costumed runDisney people. Don’t get me wrong – more power to those guys! I am very impressed with your work! But the physical and monetary demands are too much for me to pursue excellent race costumes at this time.

However, my Figment-y dip into modest costuming has made me hungry for personalized shout-outs from spectators. My Minnie ears are not enough because half the people on the course are Minnie Mouse. But if I can make it clear I’m channeling a character and put enough distance between me and the next Cheshire cat to know that encouraging cry was meant for me? That’s the business! 

And so I give you my costumes for Lumiere’s Two Course Challenge:

Race costumes

Nothing groundbreaking, of course, but I’m pleased with my spread all the same. Bonus: my trip companion Erika might run as Alice for the 10K!

I would never leave you hanging if you want to make any of these items your items:

  • The sequined cat ears are from Forever 21. They don’t have these exact ears anymore but they do have an alternate selection.

  • The Cheshire cat dress is from Hot Topic. Unfortunately it’s no longer available but resellers might have it.

  • The shorts are from Target’s C9 by Champion line. These are similar.

  • The mint green lace mouse ears are from Hot Topic. I pondered getting some more personalized Little Mermaid ears but elected to save the money. I think these are right for the Ariel color scheme, at the very least. Unfortunately they’re no longer available but resellers might have them.

  • The Ariel workout tank is from Hot Topic; note that it runs VERY big – hence the fit-altering knot in the front. Although now that I’ve figured that out I think it’s a cute look. Unfortunately it’s no longer available but resellers might have it.

  • The running pants are from Victoria’s Secret Sport and are my new favorite! They have a waistband key pocket AND side pockets.

I can’t wait to slip these babies on at 2:45am and pound some magical pavement!
