I want to do something that is Disney themed (I feel like that's a given since the race is at Disneyland) and couple-y, since I'm running with my husband. He has graciously said he will wear anything as long as it makes me happy. (Hmm. Too good to be true? Sounds kinda like a trap, huh?)
He has already voiced that he doesn't want to be a Prince; he wants to be someone that did something. Yes, you're preaching to the choir. We could have gotten into a long winded discussion about how Eric was so influential in Ariel's future, etc, but I pick my battles and still consider this a win. So that's ruled out pretty much all of the Princesses/Princes.
Ideas so far:
Wall-E & Eve
Probably the hardest to make and run in. Not sure how Dearest will fair running in a box in the heat.
Star Wars Themed
Lots of choices here: R2D2 & C3P0, Princess Leia & Han Solo (& possibly my brother as Luke Skywalker)
Rapunzel & Flynn
Easiest costumes to make and run in. Unfortunately, I don't have the trademark flowing blond hair and I don't want to wear a wig.
(Pretty sure the side-eye Flynn is giving Rapunzel is the same one Dearest gave me when I told him I wanted us to dress up.)
Mulan & Mushu
Sort of the obvious choice (lol) and the hubby is ok dressing up as Mushu. I think I would have a hard time making Mushu's tail, not to mention how to get his ears, blue horns and yellow whiskers on a costume.
Thoughts? Suggestions to add? Votes?
