As I mentioned Monday, I put my Tower of Terror costume together this weekend. Per my decree after my Donald costume, I really don't want to go too intense on costumes (anymore).
This costume was pretty simple. I've known for a long while that I wanted run this one as a Hollywood Tower Hotel employee (aka a Tower of Terror employee). I know they sell cotton t-shirt versions, but had no desire to run it in cotton since historically it's always hot this race weekend.
I knew I could make a version of it myself! I started with a maroon tech tee. I found a New Balance one online that was the perfect color and only $8 bucks. I had a Hollywood Tower Hotel logo iron on made for me by Miranda at DesignsbyMKC on Etsy. She had created my iron on for my Anna costume as well. She didn't have a HTH logo in the shop, but she was able to make one for me. She was a joy to work with - easy to order and she shipped super quickly! I highly recommend her if you need an iron-on made!
The iron-on was easy to apply and then from there, the rest came together quickly. I added gold stripes to the sleeves and black/gold stripes to the shoulders using ribbon with fabric adhesive tape.
Whole thing took me about 30 minutes to make and I am really pleased with how it came out! I'll be pairing it with a hat Abby had made last year as part of her costume and a black skirt - either a Sparkle Athletic one or plain black running skirt. I'd prefer a Sparkle Athletic skirt, but I know they don't bring all the colors to the expo's and I forgot to pre-order for expo pickup. Oh well, it is what it is!
What is everyone else dressing up as?
