Really awesome 5 mile run last night. The weather was literally perfect (65, light breeze), my playlist was spot on and my legs were ready to cruise.
While I was running I forgot about something rather disappointing … my tutu came in yesterday afternoon and I don’t really like it.
It is beautiful and looks exactly as pictured. The person who made it did a great job. It’s just A LOT more puffy than I expected it to be. Quite frankly, it’s gigantic in circumference. I didn’t measure it but I bet it’s like 2.5 feet wide when it’s fully puffed up.
I don’t think I could comfortably run in it. The mesh definitely puffs up enough that it hits my arms, which I imagine would get very annoying … and Krissy (Shiawase Life) commented to me that it could chafe during the race. That would be really bad.
I have no clue what use I have for this tutu if I don’t wear it to the Princess Half. I suppose I could make it part of a Halloween costume, although I haven’t dressed up for Halloween in years. I’ll probably just have to call it a lesson learned.
Since I still want to dress up for the race, I think I’ll get a Sparkle Skirt and put together a Minnie Mouse or Princess Jasmine costume. Krissy and Karla both recommended Sparkle Skirts and I trust their opinions since they both have put together some awesome runDisney costumes.
The Minnie skirt is SUPER cute …
But Princess Jasmine is my favorite Princess. If only I could bring Cecil and get him to be my Rajah for the weekend.
I’m leaning more toward the Minnie skirt because I could just throw on a black top and some mouse ears and be good to go.
Since I already spent $40 on the Cruella tutu that I won’t be wearing I don’t really want to spent too much more on a second costume. I could see having to do a DIY top and headband for Jasmine getting costly.
What do you think, Minnie Mouse or Princess Jasmine?
Any ideas for what I can do with the tutu? Is there some place I can donate it to or resell it?
