I'm home again! After another 21 hours of travelling my mom was waiting for me at the airport to take me home. I threw everything out of my suitcase, made some soup and then showed my mom the pictures of the first few days. Now trying to stay awake for another 4 hours till it's a decent time to go to bed! Before I start the trip report, I would like to show the pictures of the costumes of the guests I took when Halloween started on the 7th of September. This year it is allowed to dress up during the entire Halloween season, during the day, and not just at Halloween parties. And the JApanese are very serious about dressing up. We saw amazing costumes and worthy of being photographed. Although most guests dress up for themselves, so they can take pictures of themselves in costume in the parks, they were surprised that I wanted to take a picture of them. We saw many Ariels (especially in Disney Sea), Belle was popular, Cinderella (both movie versions), Anna was more popular than Elsa, and a lot of Snow Whites. Some costumes were store bought, some were home made, but they were all detailed. Oh and dozens and dozens of Mickeys & Minnies, but they were mainly more Disney bounding than costumes. It was amazing, but also a bit confusing. Imagine seeing a rare character and then your first instinct is to run over, but then realize 'oh... it's a guest'. Happened mainly when I saw several Flynn Riders ;-) or imagine how confusing it is to be in line with four Rapunzels behind you ! Also at one point, we were waiting in line to meet characters, one of the groups was Mary & Bert. The character handler standing next to them, is tapped on her shoulder by a guest dressed up as Bert, and the costume was so good, the Cast Member gasped for a moment and had to take a second look to make sure it wasn't the real Bert Two out of three Caballeros A Chesire Cat Snow White & Cinderella Cinderella, Prince Charming and Fairy Godmother Anna & Belle Rapunzel & Elena Eric & Ariel in Wedding Outfit (Eric in sailor outfit seemed to be the easiest costume to have your boyfriend join the dressing up ;-) ) The harem girls from Aladdin Anna I thought this one was a fun one as well: Moana and Hei Hei Hercules and Megara Ursula and Ariel, getting extra credit for the fish-pen and creating the contract! Belle and Mrs. Potts, the woman who is dressed as Mrs. Potts had knitted herself a little Mrs. Potts and Chip, they were cute! And Belle was surprised I wanted to take her picture, but she was prepared for Halloween as she handed me a little bag of trick or treat candy after taking their picture Esmeralda & Clopin, who had an adorable little puppet Flotsam & Jetsam, they were surprised I had recognized them. They were wearing both different colored contact lenses. I saw that more often, a lot of girls who played blue-eyed princesses were wearing contacts. Snow White & Mulan Jane Anastasia & Drizella Tremaine But the absolute winner was this brilliant man, the costume is so simple, but maybe that's part of the brilliance. He dressed up as the Partners Statue.
