Wine & Dine Costume: Tutu Da Loo

As many of you know, Robert and I are participating in the runDisney Wine & Dine Half Marathon and Jingle Jungle 5K in November this year. We probably won’t do any major costumes for the 5K, but we will certainly dress up of course. However, for the half marathon we wanted to do something fun and as a couple! In the spirit of Wine & Dine, we have decided to go as characters from the ultimate Disney/Pixar foodie movie…Ratatouille! I will be going as Remy and Robert will be going as Linguini!

Although we don’t have all our costume pieces finalized, I knew I wanted to run in a tutu for the first time. So I contacted Missy at Tutu Da Loo about customizing a running tutu for my Remy outfit and she did NOT disappoint. I received my tutu in the mail on Monday and couldn’t wait to share pictures with you all!

The tutu is adorable and SO comfortable. I have noticed that a lot of tutu makers (and DIYer’s) use those elastic bands for the waist band that hug you tightly and create tummy discomfort. Missy uses a different, and very comfortable, type of stretchy material for the waist band. It sits on my waist or hips perfectly without moving. I also really enjoy the design; it is fun and bouncy and makes me feel like a super girly runner, I love it! The colors are exactly what I asked for, and the Eiffel Tower ribbon is a great final touch!

If you are thinking about running in a tutu, I would HIGHLY recommend Missy. Her products are great quality with competitive prices! She can completely customize the tutu to what you want as well!

  8. I love your tutu. That is adorable and will be perfect for your costume. I ran in a tutu for the 5k in January as part of the Dopey Challenge. It was fun, but I would not want to run any longer distance. Running clothing make me comfortable, not a fluffy tutu. still, I love the photos from the race!

  11. I LOVE this idea!!! I swore I would never run in a tutu again after the PHM but I may take that back and wear one for at least one of the Disney races I have coming up. I know 2 out of the 3 costumes I'm wearing. Now just to think of the last one, and actually make my costumes! I'm so excited for Wine & Dine!!

  18. Great tutu. I love the idea of keeping it food AND Disney themed. I'll have to remember that when I eventually run wine and dine.

  19. What a great costume idea! And that tutu is adorable! Sadly, my short self and body proportions look terrible in a tutu but it looks awesome on you! I can't wait to see the complete outfits. I'm doing Wine & Dine in a Haunted Mansion themed costume (still a secret, lol), hope to get to see you there!
