Mickey & Minnie's Edwardian Inspired Halloween Costumes

One glance at Mickey and Minnie and you know it’s Halloween Season. But unless you take a closer look, you’ll miss the amazing attention to detail Disney Parks designers have put into the costumes.

For Halloween, the silhouettes of their costumes are Edwardian inspired. The scalloped edge on Minnie’s peplum and Mickey’s cape are reminiscent of the wing edges of friendly bats found in the belfries of Haunted Mansions around the globe. And all are accented with iridescent piping inspired by the welcoming candlelight glow of a front-porch pumpkin.

There’s also a mixture of rich eggplant hued velvets, satins and organzas, accented by vibrant pumpkin shade brocades, sheers and suedes, according to senior designer Diana Kuriyama.

To set off Mickey’s waistcoat, you’ll notice a dash of pumpkin-stem green with a vest that is tone-on-tone brocade with a hidden pumpkin leaf pattern.

On Minnie, sequin embroidery in a pumpkin vine pattern accents her puff sleeves and peplum along with Mickey’s lapels and cape lining. You may also notice the interesting velvet on Minnie’s hat and bodice.

The costumes can be seen in several parks, including Disneyland Resort Paris. Here’s the list:

Disneyland Resort – Disneyland Park Town Square during normal park operating hours during the Halloween season.

Walt Disney World Resort – Magic Kingdom’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party nights.

Hong Kong Disneyland – Regular Park meet-and-greet in Town Square during the Halloween Season.

So, do you have a favorite Mickey and Minnie costume?

I really like Aviatrix Minnie. Any chance she’ll make a flight to Epcot?

I saw these from during the Not So Scary Halloween Party. They are really wonderful and the color really brings out the theme of the Party: a little scary, and a lot of fun, but always family friendly.

What great costumes. Yes, I do have a Minnie costume of sorts that I made myself to wear when I volunteered at our local zoo for Boo at the Zoo. Since I love Minnie and I’m a grandma, I made myself Granny Mouse – Minnie’s grandma. It was a big hit at Boo at the Zoo.
