Thanks so much for all of your comments! Cindy, you're so funny! I was the only mom in full costume. However, other moms we wearing Disney t-shirts, sweatshirts, Mickey Mouse ears and one mom had flashing mouse ears! lol I was on the planning committee along with DH and really wanted to add to the atmosphere. :) Thanks again!

Thanks for the very thorough review. You've inspired me to perhaps make a costume of similar caliber for our Fall Harvest Festival. I don't usually wear a costume, but I probably will this year thanks to your review.
