Over the past few days I’ve been working on my Halloween costume. Yes, you read right. Halloween costume. Why? Well, part of our festivities will occur over a month prior to the holiday itself! Patrick and I procured tickets for one of Mickey’s Halloween Parties at Disneyland for September 27th! These Halloween parties are the only time when guests over the age of nine are allowed to wear costumes! I’m super excited and when I settled down on who I wanted to go as, I felt the need to, as my mother puts it, “go forth and conquer!”
Now, you may be thinking, that the title of this entry is who I am going as. Nope. Although it is a western character. But while I was working on my costume the other day I did put on the 1953 Doris Day Calamity Jane, and as I got dressed today, felt inspired by the film for my outfit to go buy more supplies for my costume.
As for the details of my costume, I’m keeping it under wraps for the time being. So you’ll just have to wait. Yep, just like last year.
Blouse: White Puff Blouse by Bettie Page Clothing, Portland, Oregon
Skirt: Rummage sale
Wooden Cowboy Boot Earrings: Birthday Gift from my wonderful friend Alicia
Western Theme Charm Bracelet: Gift from my dad!
Shoes: Bonnie by Miss L Fire, Imelda’s, Portland, Oregon

Those shoes are amaaaaazing! 😀
Looking fabulous as always. I love all your costumes so much!
But I have to ask….no one over 9 can wear costumes at disneyland?!?!?!
Yep! It is not very clearly stated on the website, but multiple Disney-themed forums and blogs have stated that the limit is nine.
That’s bizzare (and would be so sad for my kids…they love dressing up). Not that I think we will ever be able to afford a trip to disneyland from Aus…
Ahhh, how sweet, the bandana around the skirt is great, love the bracelet, (I have one just like it)! Doris Day “aka” America’s sweetheart, the girl next door, was my first inspiration for my love of vintage clothing. Can’t wait to see your costume!
Ohh you look just darling! That blouse is simply wonderful. That party sounds like such fun, I can’t wait to see your costume!
Wow, a lovely Outfit. The skirt with the bandana is great, finally an idea what to do with all the old bandanas waiting in my to-sew-stack, because I don’t wear them.
That shirt is super cute, and your shoes are still some of my favorite. I can’t wait to see your costume, you are always so creative.
I’ll be there at the trick or treat on the 27th! it’s the first day trick or treat starts. we tend to push that no wearing costume deal since a lot of the time we go after half marathons and we are in costume from the race haven’t been stopped yet lol
Awww, this is darling. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for this year! 🙂
Loving the outfit! I also can’t wait to see what your costume is going to be!
Woohoo for Halloween! I started phase 1 of my costume today.. buying fabric!
You are adorable and I can’t wait to see what your costume is. You always make something amazing!
@missfairchild if you do make it out to Disneyland I would tell your kids to wear whatever they want Disneyland is all about being a kid for the day and making all your magical dreams come true!
This is adorable and I can’t wait to see your costume as last year’s was so neat!
Total outfit perfection! I love every single thing – very much including those awesome shoes! You’re not alone in thinking about your Halloween costume in July, I’ve already started doing the same thing, too, though I’ve not hit upon what I’m going to wear this year yet. Last year I knew by January that I wanted to be a 1940s nurse and was quite fortunate to find both a vintage uniform and cap from two different etsy sellers in relatively little time, which meant I had months to wait until I could sport my costume on October 31st. No such luck this year, and with Halloween scarcely three months away, I really have to come up with a fun idea soon! (Last minute kind of gal, I am not! :D)
That last photo put a giant grin on my face! Can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeve this year, eeeee!
ooo…I can’t wait to see what you’ve got planned for Halloween! I’ve got my costume in the works right now too and I’m also keeping in a secret. I’m going to a big Halloween party with prized this year and I’m doing something special!
