Cinderelly, Cinderelly

So I have a Cinderella costume that is pretty dang awesome! A few weeks ago, one of my best friends asked if I would come as Cinderella for her daughter's 3rd birthday party. I was more than excited to do this! I've always wanted to work in Disneyland as one of the princesses-specifically Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty, so this gave me an idea of what that would be like.

I cannot even begin to tell you how fun and adorable this experience was. I was greeted at the door by about 8 little girls, dressed as princesses. I don't think I have ever had anyone be so excited to see me! I was immediately showered with hugs and they all seemed so happy that "Cinderella" came to hang out with them.

They were SO cute! We took some pictures and then had lunch. All during the meal, they were asking me all these questions like,

"Did you come here in your carriage?"

"Do your mice still live with you?"

"Are you friends with Snow White or Belle?"

"What is Prince Charming doing today?"

"Do you ever see your fairy godmother?"

Those are only a few of the questions, but you get the idea. They had Disney Princess napkins for the little lunch and they kept pointing to Cinderella and saying, "Look! That's you!!" It was absolutely adorable. Some of the girls at the party were around 8 years old or so, and they were a little skeptical if I was the real Cinderella or not. One little girl asked me if I was the REAL Cinderella and so I asked her if I looked like the real Cinderella and she said, yes, so then I assured her that I was the REAL Cinderella.

I had an absolute blast playing Cinderella for an afternoon! I'm glad it was a hit with the birthday girl and her cousins. Unfortunately, I forgot to put the battery back in my camera after I had specifically charged it for this event, so I didn't get any pictures on my camera with the cute little girls. :( BUT-I did make Josh take a picture of me when I got home from the party. Too bad my headband thing is kinda screwy, but you get the idea. Josh got quite a kick out of me while I was Cinderella-fying myself.

If any of you need Cinderella to make an appearance at your next party, you know who to call! :)

Oh my gosh!! I love your story! I am so jealous. I read your post to my mom too and we both got a kick out of it. And by the way, my friends little girl loves the Disney Princesses so I'll suggest you to her for her next birthday party.

That is so cute, Allison. I'm going to have to remember that for when Jayda is a little older. You make a perfect Cinderella.
