I have another great running skirt shop to share with you all today. It’s called Run Princess Run, and she makes some really adorable Disney skirts that can be used for any of the Disney races. I was sent the Maleficent skirt to review.
To begin with, I pretty much love all of the designs in her shop. I like the amount of variety she has too – there are definitely your princesses, but also other Disney characters (like Maleficent and Dopey), Star Wars skirts, and Avengers. Her skirts all look like they have so much detail – many of them have glitter, bows, and layered fabric to perfectly reproduce the look of that character.
I let Ashley decide which skirt to send me, and I was pretty excited to see Maleficent. I will be the first to admit that I’m usually more of a princess girl, but this skirt is just gorgeous. I never really thought about doing a villain costume, but now that I have this I think I will have to!
I think the material that she uses is really nice, and different than a lot of other running skirts. In appearance on my skirt it almost has a “black leather” look, which is perfect for Maleficent. It’s also very lightweight and nice for running. I wore it on a practice run this week over a pair of shorts, and could hardly feel it at all. No chafing or anything either like you sometimes get from tutus.
But of course the best part is the glitter! I love that she was able to add some fun color to the skirt, for a character whose outfit is mostly black. There is purple, pink, and green, the exact shades to represent Maleficent. And total coincidence, but I had just applied new Jamberry nails the day before – they happened to match this skirt perfectly! I guess I know what nails I’m doing when I get an occasion to wear it.
Speaking of which, I’m now strongly thinking that if I get into the Disneyland Paris half marathon I will now go as Maleficent! I can’t not use this skirt for the Disney race, and the only other one I’m planning right now is Princess in February, and for that one I do really want to go as a Princess. I wish they would bring back the Tower of Terror 10 miler because that would be perfect, but I’m thinking Paris would work well too – after all, it does have Sleeping Beauty’s castle!
What do you think? Make sure you check out the Run Princess Run shop to get a look at all of the other gorgeous skirts available there!
