While I’ll probably never actually top our Club 33 enchanted china costumes, I am not going to give up and just start running in boring outfits! So, for the Glass Slipper Challenge I wanted to come up with two costumes that were a little different but fun.
Going with the Cinderella theme, I decided to go as Cindy in rags for the 10k on Saturday. This was my inspiration:
My original plan was to do the costume on the left for the 10k and Cindy in her ballgown (on the right) for the half. But as the day got closer I just wasn’t feeling the regular Cindy costume. More on that to come.
To do the Cindy in rags costume, I knew I’d use Mudpie from Sparkleskirts as the base. I got a long sleeved tech shirt from ASICS and a black singlet from ASICS for the top. And VickyRuns made me an adorable apron. I ironed on the little mice picture and made a tech material headscarf out of an old white running shirt that I haven’t worn in forever. Easy peasy. And here’s the result:
My only concern is the long sleeves if the weather is warm. I’ll keep a close eye on the forecast and if it’s looking warm, I’ll just cut the sleeves off to cap sleeve length and hem them up before we leave on Thursday morning.
For the Half, once I decided that I wasn’t going to do the Cindy in her ballgown I was looking around for inspiration and with the help of some friends, decided to go with Aurora in her make it pink make it blue gown. In case it’s been a while since you’ve watched the movie (in which case you need to reassess your priorities!), the scene is where two of the fairies can’t agree what color her gown should be. One wants pink, one wants blue and they end up with this:
Here’s the back:
