This costume was very easy to put together and running with Wall-e and Eve, I was actually recognized a few times!
Make it pink!! Make it blue!!
Let's look how to put the costumes together!
NEEDED FOR PINK:
NEEDED FOR BLUE:
In honor of AP signups for Star Wars that happened Tuesday, I'm finally going to review my costumes from last Star Wars weekend! In case you missed the recaps, here you go!
These costumes needed to come together easy and they had to be done before Christmas as I wouldnt have time once I got back from Dopey.
We all decided to run as ewoks as he's our unofficial mascot! We were an ewoks tribe and we all had different costumes.
Devin and Brian bought orange fabric and made a cape and also added an orange headband.
I enlisted my grandma for a hood. She said she had the fabric laying around the house. I was not expecting her to make it this elaborate with the thread and ears but I love the way it came out.
I coupled it with an orange shirt and brown sparkle skirt I bought from sparkle athletic(I did expo pickup-the best!)
It was a super easy costume and I love the way it turned out.
As we are going as a tribe again, I want to continue to grow the costume. I think I may make furry leggings or something of the like.
What is the last race you ran in costume?
The Tiana/slave Leia matchup takes time but I'm really happy with how it turned out.
Not don't let the smiles fool you, this costume was TOUGH to run in and was covered in sweat. I have scars where my costume would rub and I promise my buttcheeks were hanging out for some of it. I did however love being part of a big costume group-so much fun making our costumes together!
This was another easy one to put together from the Star Wars: Dark Side 5k
This outfit also was great to run in-it kept be from getting too hot and I will definitely be wearing it again!
Make sure to check out my recaps for the 2016 Glass Slipper Challenge (Expo, 10k + Half)
The Rapunzel outfit I wore for the Half came together pretty easy but since I glued the ribbons on, it took longer than I would have liked. Make sure to set aside at least a week to allow all of the ribbons to dry.
For the shirt design you will need:

Overall, it was easy to put together and I loved how it turned out!
Has anyone else ever run as Rapunzel?
In town/Kiss the girl Ariel was pretty easy to put together for the Princess 10k.
Have you ever run as Ariel?
After have a jammed packed day at the Expo and crashing hard at 8PM, I was up at 330 and actually felt refreshed. However my legs were a bit stiff which is not surprising. I got dressed, made breakfast and tea, stretched and was off to the bus by 4.
We got on the bus around 4:10 and then had a crazy adventure. The exit to Epcot was closed and the driver was not told another way to go so we went all the way down to the AK exit and had to turn around to come up Osceola parkway. We made it there by 4:30.
I walked over to check my bag and get in the corrals and got some good stretching in before we were moved up to the start line at 5:10. I chatted with a girl named Madison before we started. One thing was the microphones or the speakers at the front were not working. We could not hear anything which means people were talking through the national anthem.
We started at 5:31 and the crowd was moving pretty fast. One thing I like about the 10k course is it opens up quickly so I was able to pull over out of the way to do my intervals. My plan was to use 60/30 as it's pretty easy on my body and I knew I was still in recovery from LAM. my plan was to go on feel and not run with pain. Well let's just say, my legs felt better than I thought they would. My first mile was a bit under 11 min, and then my running pace from there was faster. I was having to force myself to walk slower and take more breaks as I needed to save my legs for the half the next day.
The course is the same as the WDW 10k with running out towards the Epcot parking entrance and looping back on the road until you hit backstage. From there, you go around the World Showcase and towards the Boardwalk area before entering Epcot and finishing in the parking lot.
The first character stop we saw was Anna and Elsa. I love that they talk and interact with the crowd and of course Elsa uses her ice powers to make it snow! The first stop that you could wait in line for was the old witch from Snow White but she was tucked so far back, I couldn't see her! Once we headed up the bridge, on the left hand side was Tinkerbell and all of her fairy friends!
We kept going down the road where usually there is not much going on. We hit our first water stop and right after that was a new character stop: Pochantas and Meeko. A "princess" actually out on the course??? Yes!
We kept going and passed the video sign playing Disney remix music videos and headed backstage. On the entrance backstage is where the halfway point is. It is interesting to note that this year there was 6 corrals (A-F) instead of 5. When we entered backstage, I heard the fireworks that let off corral E or F (I lost count somewhere in the middle) so as it usually happens, someone wins before everyone has even started!
We enter World Showcase by Norway and hit our second water stop. We passed China, Refreshment Port and Germany. I told a potty break in Germany and took a selfie with spaceship earth and made it to Italy where Jiminy and Pinocchio were waiting!
We continued around world showcase and I stopped for Cogsworth and Lumiere in France who are just so cute!
We continued out of the International Gateway and over to the Boardwalk and I stopped for the Genie outside of ESPN Zone and even got to hear the Usc fight song (#FIGHTON!). We continued around the Boardwalk where I saw the Lizards! We made our way over to yacht club and beach club before heading back into Epcot.
Right before the entrance back into Epcot, Queen Sofia was there. We continued backstage and entered Epcot right before Journey into Imagination and continued past The Land and Living Seas before heading towards Spaceship Earth.
I finished in 1:33 (15 min/mile pace). My running miles were: 10:47/10:11/10:33/10:27/10:53/10:31/.2 in 10:12 for a total of 1:05. I added about 28 minutes with my one potty break and photo stops-not too bad!
I grabbed my stuff and headed straight for the bus. I got back to the room to shower, stretch and relax a bit before grabbing a quick breakfast at the hotel. I got to the bus area and the AK bus pulled up immediately and a private shuttle to AK: score! I Waited for everyone else from the expo and we did the Safari, Everest and got a nice African margarita and tried the new pulled pork grits:YUM! I also got my beloved iced tea too.
We then took a taxi over to Disney Springs for the We Run Social meetup, a great round of drinks at Hangar Bar and a bit of shopping. We stopped by Fit2Run and got a free gift:woohoo!
I then headed to Wilderness Lodge to meet up with the BOGP Lizards and had a great meal at Whispering Canyon. A bit too much fun probably as we didn't leave until almost 8 and I didn't get in bed until 9. Oops!
I definitely had a fabulous day but was on my feet all day so I knew my legs would be a bit tired. I passed out by 9 for a 3:05 wake up call.
Overall, I had a great time at the 10k however I'm not a huge fan of the out and back at the beginning especially because it's dark and not all of my pictures turned out that great. I'm excited to see how the Star Wars 10k turns out as its a completely different course than this course.
What's the last 10k you ran?
In honor of Star Wars: Force Awakens opening tonight, here is a how to make a Princess Leia costume!
I have wanted to run as Princess Leia for awhile and knew the Star Wars Half would be the perfect race. Devin decided to go as Han Solo so we would match. What a perfect ending to 67.9 miles run together in 10 days!
This costume was super easy to put together and I even got to make my headband. I had ordered one that never came so I had to make one last minute. However it was super easy.
supplies needed: foam, glue, brown string, safety pin, headband
Your hair is ready!
