    Question Anyone dressing up as a character for EXPO ?

    Will anyone be dressing up as a Disney character or object for D23 Expo 2011?
    I plan to go as a mousketeer, with blue sweatpants, a white t-shirt with my name on it, and a pair of Disneyland mouse ears.

    Not really my thing, although I might buy a D23 polo, along with some jeans. Nothing too crazy.

    Yes! I have my Evil Queen costume and hopefully I'll have my Old Hag done by Expo.
    I wore my Queen one last year and had so much fun! Got a lot of compliments and photos taken and got interviewed by the OC Weekly.

    Yes! But I'm not saying here what I am dressing up as. I want it to be a surprise. For those that are dressing up, what days are you dressing up? I may only wear a costume on one of the three days. What day do you think most people will be dressing up? I am thinking either Friday or Saturday. Thanks

    I suppose it depends on who you want to "show off" your costume to. Friday would be the best day if you're interested in press coverage, as the media will be all over the place for the Legends presentation. Saturday will be better if you want the larger public crowd.

    Personally, I'm not doing a traditional costume, but I did have a couple of custom t-shirts made just for the Expo. They're 100% pure Disney Hardcore fan related; you'll need to know your Disney to get the references.

    I don't understand why people dress up in costumes. Seems weird to me.

    I'm dressing up all three days. From past experiences I always feel empty when I'm at a convention and not dressed up.

    Because it's fun. When else do you get a chance to be someone else for a few hours let alone as your favorite characters? I know everyone's wished at least once they could be in a character’s shoes of their favorite fandom.

    Yes but why stop at Halloween. Halloween is just one day. Expo's give you an extra chance to live the dream. If I had a costume, I'd consider it. But I think I'd consider it more if I was going to Comic Con. So I will be at Expo, but I will be going as just me.

    At Halloween you wear a crazy looking outfit but that’s it. It doesn’t get treated any different than a regular piece of clothing as you be on your merry way while you scour for candy.


    Whereas the people in costumes at conventions (aka cosplayers) more often than not the put a LOT of effort into creating the character’s overall appearance, whether it be through quality of the costume or through character portrayal.



    Bottom line it adds on to the fun of the Expo experience.

    I want to do Pirate Costuming I think or possibly Tangled, however it's the $$ I have to come up to make either costume that is stopping me so far....
