Disney Princess Enchanted 10K Running Costume Peak

What to wear for the Disney Princess Enchanted 10K? You all know I’m obsessed with Cinderella. She’s my boo. I’ve run three runDisney races as Cinderella:

And Cinderella in the pink dress the mice make for her.

Today, I ran the Disney Princess Frozen 5K as Drizella to my sister’s Anastasia, Cinderella’s curmudgeonly stepsisters.

So I figured, why not keep working my way through costumes from the movie? Especially considering the Disney Princess Enchanted 10K is Part 1 of the Glass Slipper Challenge.

In that vein, I bring you my Disney Princess Enchanted 10K running costume. I call it “Torn Cinderella,” “Ripped Cinderella” or “Cinderella in Tatters.”

Can’t a girl get a break?

Once again I turned to Sparkle Athletic for the base—a white sparkle skirt—and whipped up the rest on my own. I still have a bit more shredding to do, but here’s the general idea.

All that’s left is to earn my first of three medals in the Glass Slipper Challenge. And hope it’s not too cold! (Um, 34 degrees at the start of the Disney Princess Frozen 5K!)

If you see me, please say hello! Have fun out there, Disney Princess Enchanted 10K runners!

As a member of the media, I’m attending the Disney Princess Half Marathon courtesy of runDisney. But as always, all opinions are purely my own. I really do believe in being honest about my experiences. For more information read my Disclosure Policy.

    Your costumes are so creative. I love that you’ve done Cinderella differently every time.

    I ran the Royal Family 5k last year as ripped-dress-Cinderella with my mother as the Fairy Godmother. Love your costume!

    Amazing costumes wow. Do you do those all yourself?

      Thank you! Yes, I do! I take the base pieces like a skirt and shirt and then embellish/add on. It’s surprisingly easy if you get creative. I actually don’t know how to sew, so I use a LOT of safety pins. The shredded Cinderella dress was completely no sew. Just scissors and safety pins.
