I think that we can all agree that one of the things that make Disney races so fun are the costumes. People get so creative and it adds to the fun atmosphere. Tutus are generally the costume of choice for most women (and men!) and this is particularly true over Princess Half Marathon Weekend. Just look at all of these tutus!
When Missy from Tutu-da-loo reached out to me about her custom running tutus, I knew it would be the perfect thing to share will all of you RAD runners! Missy celebrated her 40th birthday by participating in Walt Disney World’s Inaugural Princess Half Marathon. This was her first race EVER! She had never been a runner and was, as she says “by no means in shape.” It was something she really wanted to do and with her sister by her side they did it!. Obviously, she was hooked!
While she had a wonderful experience, Missy admits to being jealous of everyone in their beautiful tutus. She wore a tiara but, it wasn’t quite the same as having a tutu on. The decision was then made that she MUST wear a tutu from that point forward. The tutu making began when a friend asked Missy to participate in her first race. Since then she has made tutus for many other runners and found such joy in making each and every one.
Tutu-da-loo specializes in custom tutus and can accommodate any special requests. You can pick from a number of colors and styles to create a one of a kind look! The tutus can be basic like these:
Or more elaborate like these:
Aren’t they fun?!
