- Mouseketeer Ears – check! (already had those from their first trips to Disneyland!)
- White tops with classic names across the chest – that can’t be hard to make!
- light blue pants & skirts – also easy peasy!
- Black Mary Jane type shoes for the girls – check! (already had those too!)
“Awwww, look! The baby is Annette! That is SOOOO cute!”
We bought iron on letters (you can get these at any craft store. Follow the instructions – it only takes a few minutes to make a very cute T!
We saw probably two dozen other honorary Mickey Mouse Club members while at Mickeys Halloween Party – proving that this is classic fun, and not too hard to make. Most people were simply wearing their Mickey ears and name shirts with jeans and jean skirts and it looked super cute. Because of my minor OCD (that I inherited from Grandpa Deals and Steals) and my intense love for authenticity when it comes to old school Disney, my mom was kind enough to make the kids skirts and pants that matched and looked a little more old fashioned. They sure were cute, but if you aren’t a seamstress, and you can’t sweet talk your mom into it like I did – light/medium blue pants/jeans will get the point across.
One final touch – Mouseketeers wear tap shoes. Of course we were not planning on wearing tap shoes around the park (or anywhere other than tap class) – but a pair of Mary Jane shoes with BIG black ribbons tied across the strap sure looked like tap shoes. This really finished off the look!
So there you have it! Again, if we had more time to prepare, we likely would have purchased a costume from The Disney Store – BUT I am so glad we didn’t for this event! It was a fun badge of honor to have a cool homemade costume at the park during Halloween Time, so I am glad we were part of the handmade costume crowd. I also love that it was SO easy and so budget friendly! Once again – if you get the chance – try to make it to Mickey’s Halloween Party! We LOVED seeing all the creative homemade costumes, the cool Villains that only come out that time of year, the dance parties, and of course the Trick or Treating! It isn’t free – but it is one of those ‘worth it’ splurges!
Happy and Safe Trick or Treating to all!
