20 RunDisney Costume Ideas

The best part about any RunDisney race are the costumes! Who doesn't love dressing up like a Disney character and running a half marathon? People take their costumes VERY SERIOUSLY and if you are running the Disneyland Half Marathon, you have 23 days to get that costume together!!!! To help make your life easier I have collected my favorite RunDisney costumes as well as a couple ideas I am dying to see happen.

Remember the best movie ever, Troop Beverly Hills?! THAT'S a Disney movie. SOMEONE PLEASE BE TROOP BEVERLY HILLS! OR AT LEAST PHYLLIS!

Darla From Finding Nemo!

Remember to use your imagination and try to use what you already have! And here are a few tips for all your RunDisney costumes

1. Make Sure It Is Made of Athletic Material DO NOT WEAR COTTON!

This is the easiest mistake to make. Remember that you still have to run a race in this outfit! Functionality is key!

2. RUN IN IT BEFORE THE RACE

I know you are going to look really silly running around your neighborhood dressed like Jack Sparrow. But come race day it will be helpful to know what works and what doesn't work so you aren't throwing bits and pieces of your costume away each mile of the race.

3. Do a Group Costume

Seriously, there is nothing funner than a group of 2, 5, or even 10 people all dressed together. My sister and I dressed as Smee and Hook for last year's Disneyland Half and we met up with a Tiger Lily and a Peter Pan for a very funny picture. MAKE FRIENDS!

4. STOP FOR AT LEAST 1 PICTURE!

Try, try, try not to run for a PR. Take in the experience and stop for pictures while you are in the parks. It's a race unlike any other!

That's all I have for today, what are some of your favorite costumes you've seen? Email me at RunSelfieRepeat@gmail.com or comment below. Until tomorrow, #RunSelfieRepeat.

My name is Kelly Roberts and I am a 25 year old New York City resident. My story made headlines when I took selfies with hot guys “hottie hunting” my way through the NYC Half Marathon. My blog, www.RunSelfieRepeat.com is bursting with humor and personal stories that lend an insight into the world of running and lead you to believe that just about anyone, regardless of their fitness level, can and should fall in love with running. Though currently an avid runner, I never would have predicted I would run marathons. I was the kid who used to hide in the bushes or play dead to get out of running the mile in school. I HATED running. But running has given me a purpose. It’s shown me that I really am limitless. In the two years since I started running, I’ve run multiple half marathons, 10ks, and 5ks, and two full marathons. My mission is to inspire others to find the courage to say yes to themselves all the while making them laugh hysterically because laughing is the solution to everything.
