Ewok Run Disney Costume

1

Somewhere off in a faraway galaxy a young boy is preparing for the race of the galactic century!  Star Wars Half  Marathon weekend is an epic Run Disney event that takes place in the Walt Disney World Resort.  It is a weekend of galactic fun and fantastic runs.  Runners will feel the power of the force as they charge through Darth Vader’s turf with the Emperor’s white uniformed stormtroopers cheering them along the way. Runners are faced with the ultimate dilemma to run for the light side or  run for the dark side.

jedi_1851-1536x820As for my lil man, he has chosen  to run for the light side and will be representing the moon Endor  in the Star Wars 5K as an Ewok.  Yub Yub and Coatee-cha tu yub nub! (Ewokese for yay and celebrate the freedom!) Ewoks evolved from Wookiees and look like adorable lil bears.  Cunning lil creatures they are quick on their feet and known to be great hunters.  Personally, I love their cuteness!  It is for these reasons my son has chosen this notable character as his costume in his first Star Wars Race in April 2017.

The fun doesn’t stop there!  Debbie is a master designer and can make any custom look.  If you are not sure what your desired run costume should look like, you can browse her design album on Pinterest.  There you will find a variety of styles for any Run Disney event.  Here are some of my Star Wars favorites:

above: Gamorrean Guard Running Costume, Princess Leia Inspired Running CostumeGreedo Running Costume, and Tusken Raider Sand People Running Costume.

 Costumes are also perfect for Halloween, a costume party, or a fun filled day at the park!  Characters, cast members, and other Disney guests will be Ee chee wa maad (Ewokese for Wow’d) My son received so many compliments on his costume and your runner will too!  Run on over to DK Design Emporium and order your Run Disney outfit and may the force be with you!  Order processing takes up to five days.

  1. I love the world of Star Wars, being that there isn’t Halloween where I’m from there is a theme Star Wars party in my town every year. The costume looks really cute. 🙂

  2. This costume is the best. My daughter would love it. She loves Star Wars. We’ll be going to Disney in March and FINALLY meeting Chewbacca.

  3. My sister is doing the Disney Princess 1/2 marathon for the second year in a row! I should send the site to her so she can find something fun to add to her costume! Thanks for sharing!
