Participating in a themed RunDisney race can be an exciting and memorable experience (and it’s so much fun!!). Whether you’re an avid runner or just looking to have some fun, dressing up in a whimsical costume can add an extra touch of magic to your race day. Let’s take a dive into some Alice in Wonderland 5k RunDisney Costume Ideas.
Alice in Wonderland Running Costume
Why not channel the main character herself? Dress up as Alice with a classic blue dress, a white apron, and a black headband. Add a pair of white knee-high socks and black running shoes to complete the look. (Be sure to get fit tested for running shoes, but my current preferred brand and style comes in black!) You can also carry a small stuffed rabbit or a deck of oversized playing cards for added flair.
Mad Hatter Running Costume
Embrace the eccentricity of the Mad Hatter by donning a mismatched ensemble. Wear a colorful blazer (something lightweight), preferably with a large bowtie, paired with plaid running tights or pants or a crazy-patterned skirt. Check out this skirt here for an example. Or you could go with a classic pair of green shorts to be more aligned with the cartoon version of the character. Top it off with a top hat adorned with a “10/6” card, and don’t forget to bring along a teacup or teapot for added authenticity.
The Queen of Hearts Running Costume
If you want to show off your regal side, dressing up as the Queen of Hearts is a perfect choice. Wear all the red clothing with heart-shaped accents, and accessorize with a crown or tiara. Paint your face with a white base and a heart-shaped red design on your cheeks. Carry a scepter or a deck of cards with hearts to complete the royal ensemble.
The Cheshire Cat Running Costume
Get creative and become the mischievous Cheshire Cat. Wear a pink and purple striped outfit with a cat tail attached. Paint your face with the iconic Cheshire Cat grin and wear cat ears or a pink and purple striped hat. You can even add some glow-in-the-dark elements to your costume to mimic the cat’s disappearing act. Due to the races starting so early in the morning (aka it’s dark out), these will add a little extra jazz to your costume
The White Rabbit Running Costume
Channel the ever-late White Rabbit with a white top with a heart on it. Blue shorts and red arm sleeves (if it is chilly enough), a bow tie, and you’ve got a fairly easy running costume. Don’t forget the rabbit ears and carry a pocket watch (or make one out of cardboard to save on the extra weight) to emphasize the running late motif.
Tweedledee and Tweedledum Running Costume
Team up with a friend or family member and go as the playful duo, Tweedledee and Tweedledum. Wear matching red shorts, yellow shirts, and suspenders. Create oversized collars using white fabric and sew it onto your shirt. Complete the look with red beanie hats and add the iconic propeller on top. Stop by the dollar store to see if you can find a kids toy that you can fashion into a propeller.
