Nightmare Running Costume

October 1, 2016 by Kelly Lewis

Just because you’re a runner, doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun, wearing costumes for running. Some of our favorite races are perfect for running in costume, in fact – many of them actually encourage it. Especially when it’s Halloween.

Gearing up for your own Halloween inspired running event? Trying to find (or make) your very own costumes for running? Luckily, we have plenty ideas for running costumes.

For one thing, it’s super quick & incredibly easy, to “make.” Plus, you can use it for both Halloween AND Christmas runs, or, anytime you want to rock a Disney inspired look. Here’s what you’ll need…

Nightmare Running Costume Essentials

* {one} red Sparkle Visor
* {one} black Blood, Sweat, Sparkle tank
* {one} pair of white Sparkle Sleeves (we’d suggest adding some “stitches” using a needle & thread, OR a black permanent marker for a more authentic “touch.” Just note that is a permanent change to your sleeves.)
* {one} Patchwork Nightmare Sparkle Athletic Running Skirt
* {one} pair of black & white stripe Race Legs
* {one} pair silver wing Shoe Shwings
* optional: black running shoes – while they aren’t necessary, black running shoes, and a red “yarn” wig really are the “icing on the cake”
