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.
As 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.
This was the easiest costume to put together. My new friend, Debbie owner of DK Design Emporium helped me with the too cute Ewok ears that have literally stopped Disney cast members in their tracks. One cast member couldn’t handle the cuteness and teared up while exclaiming, “Just stop it!” Debbie shapes the faux fur ears and attaches them along with an orange hood to an orange baseball cap to create the Ewokian look. The orange hood is quite light and breathable, keeping any runner cool during an extended run. Need this hat for an adult runner? No worries! Debbie can make this hat in adult or child sizes. Match the Ewok Hat with a brown runners shirt and brown runners shorts and your lil Jedi mate is easily transformed into a mighty Ewok.
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:
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.
