Meet & Greet: Halloween Edition

Hey hey!

What the best part Disney? Meeting the characters of course! I absolutely adore meeting the characters and princesses, and Mickey's-Not-So-Scary features my personal favourites; the Villains! I love a good Disney Villain and any chance I get to meet them is a golden opportunity.
Our night started out with none other than . . . The Pumpkin King himself!
 Jack and Sally only come out during MNSSHP so their line is always the longest. They were our first stop for the night. I'd say we got in line around 5:30 pm and we met them around 6:30, so it was actually really great getting there early. Jack and Sally were absolutely the cutest!! They asked a lot about skirts and Sally wondered if we had cobwebs under them (we did not!).
Tell me Sally is not the absolute cutest! She did the "sorority squat" with us and the result is epic.
Next stop: Our loves; The Tweedles! And their queen of course!
The Tweedles were so excited to see our costumes, they said they looked just like theirs! In case you don't remember, last December we went to Disney and dressed as the Tweedles (you can see it here). We explained who was who and Tweedle Dum took me under his wing.
"How d'ye do and shake hands, shake hands, shake hands. How d'ye do and shake hands, state your name and business."
P.S. My photopass skills are great, I love the camera! Lol
My most anticipated stop of the night though was meeting my queen, Cruella de Vil.
I love Cruella de Vil so much!! I think she is absoultely fabulous and flawless. Yass with the furs and little black dress!! (NOTE: I do not support the current production of real furs. I own one vintage fur coat the was produced in the 1950's and I will continue to purchase vintage furs, should the opportunity ever arise, however, I do not support the current production of animal good.)
All that said, Cruella is my Queen! I could not wait to meet her! She loved my skirt so much and said it would perfect for hiding puppies. She wanted to see under the skirt so of course I obliged!
Not the best quality photos but excellent quality memories!
P.S. Photopass takes the greatest outtake photos ever! They are so funny!
Next stop: another love of mine, Jack Sparrow.
The man, the pirate, the legend himself.
I'd gladly join his pirate crew and day of the year!
Our final stop of the night: the Princesses!
Punzie came first, she loved that I sewed our costumes myself, she sews herself too you know!
Did I mention that she gives the best hugs ever!
Here's another great outtake for you!
Every trip, no matter what, there is always a photo of me where I look like this. LOL!
After Punzie came the Southern Queen: Princess Tiana! She told us all about the party she'd be having and she would be making her gumbo. Please let me come!
That wraps up my adventures at Mickey's-Not-So-Scary-Halloween Party! It was seriously the best Disney party ever and I can't wait to go again next year!

Mickey's-Not-So-Scary-Halloween-Party!

Hello!

I'm coming back at you today with my photos from...
Mickey's-Not-So-Scary-Halloween-Party!!!

This was my first year going to MNSSHP and it was amazing! I wasn't totally sure what to expect but it exceeded all of my expectations. It was also my first time going to Magic Kingdom in the fall, it was beautiful.
Classic Disney Pumpkin Pic!
Now it's costume time!
 I began working on our costumes back in May when Kelsey came up with the idea of going as the Cha Cha Bingo Girls form the Festival of Fantasy Parade.
I don't have very many process pictures for the costumes, it was completely my mistake, I should have taken more. But here are the final shots courtesy of the amazing PhotoPass Photographers!
So what did I make?
Corset: Bought from Amazon and hand painted by Kelsey & myself.
Skirts: Patterned and constructed by me!
Tights: Bought and hand painted by Kelsey!
Bolero Jackets: Patterned and constructed by me.
Head Bows: Constructed by me.
Gloves & Undershirts & Bloomers: Bought and hand dyed by Kelsey.
 First Stop: Our home, Storybook Circus!
Of course we had to pose with our trashcans! Look how cure we all look together.
All the posing for all the pictures because our costumes are bomb. Not everyone knew who we were but many people weren't afraid to ask, and we were more than happy to tell them! Every cast member knew who we were and many wondered if we worked for Disney ourselves. (Unfortunately neither of us do!)
One of the biggest features of the party is the Boo to You Parade, a total villain themed parade.
It. Was, Incredible!!
Disney villians hold a very special place in my heart so getting to see them in their own parade was amazing! Unfortunately, I don;t have very many photos from the parade. I didn't bring my good camera with me to the park. In fact, I didn't even bring a bag! My phone doesn't take very good nighttime shots so I didn;t bother to take many. Instead I just enjoyed the parade.
Pirates love us. Every time there is a pirate they always notice us and Captain Barbarossa was no exception. This was his priceless reaction our blowing him kissed. He tried hard to be menacing but we loved him too much!
Now back to our previously scheduled costume photos!
Our costumes were a huge hit with the Big Top Souvenirs Cast Members!
It was nearing the end of the night and we desperately needed to buy our MNSSHP pins. We ran into the Big Top and were completely taken by surprise when the cast members started cheering and chanting "They're here! They're here!" Turns out they had been waiting for us to come into the store all night.They gave us candied apples and asked to pose for a picture with us. It was a magical experience.
They even gave us buttons that said; "Best Costume!" It was such a great feeling for them to love our costumes as much as they did, After putting in literally months of work, it was amazing!
Mickeys-Not-So-Scary-Halloween-Party was seriously one of the best experiences I've ever had. And you can bet we're going again next year! Spoiler Alert: we're totally wearing these costumes again! But we're actually going to go twice next year. Once early in September, we're we'll wear these. And once again in October, wear we're wearing all new costumes. I'm keeping our new costumes under wraps for now by here's a hint: they're also from the Festival of Fantasy Parade!
