|Feel sad for me. I missed out on this. (Photo source: Kaboose crafts - where this costume's difficulty rating is "very easy" - Oh really?)|
Fortunately, Zontians are a talented lot and a small amount of begging secured me a clever woman who was the proud owner of a sewing machine. Penny dropped everything and the night before I flew out there was a knock on my front door and there was her lovely husband holding one completed halloween costume.
So how did I spend the night?
Check after the jump - and see all the other costumes too!
|As Mickey's Sorcerer's Apprentice!|
I found this couple in the entrance queue: Maleficent in both female and dragon form
These kids were drawing an extraordinary amount of attention. It is rare to see such high quality outfits. Love the girlie version of the Mad Hatter.
The ugliest Fairy Godmother ever:
|Dude looks like a lady|
A whole bunch of Japanese Minnies
This couple were most the delightful I saw all night
|Is Mickey and Minnie as Kermit and Miss Piggy or vice versa?|
|They own a diamond mine but Snow White still doesn't have any jewellery|
|"You want this hat? Get on your knees and bark like a dog!"|
|How do you kiss something that doesn't have lips?|
|Although it was kinda boring . You'd thnk that they could stick a deathly princess in the pictire - sheesh|
|Much more satisfying for a halloween carriage experience|
Whilst that's a WINNER in my book, I appreciate that 70+ photos make for a long post. Here's a few to give you a taste of my moment of pixie dust.
|Mickey's overacted joy at seeing my outfit|
|When I told him that i had kept the hat safe from Donald's grasping hands .... ummm .. wings ... ummm...whatever Donald has.|
|Teaching me Sorcerer Mickey moves|
|ummm - I perhaps don't have the style and panache of Mickey|
|More traditional posing commences|
|Mickey then decides he wants to autograph my glove|
|Then Minnie wanted to sign something (I had managed to keep her out until this point - I mean what does she do?? At least Barbie trys out numerous careers. Mickey decides to sign the hat.|
|Saying thank you|
I was very impressed that Mickey took the effort to get my name to sign on the hat.
|no returnimg these for a refund|
I did learn that it is hard to eat with giant mickey gloves on.
