Did you know that Disney held a costume contest during the D23 Expo? Named after the fabulous Edna a la Mode from The Incredibles, contestants were invited to enter costumes from any of the companies under the Disney umbrella, from the parks to Star Wars. And they were competing for five of these specially made, totally exclusive Edna a la Mode statues, below. Aren’t they fabulous darling!
Entries were submitted in advance and carefully vetted, with 500 costumes eventually whittled down to about 40. You can see all of the costumes at D23 (including the contestants) here, here and here and check out the winners below!
Best Craftsmanship award went to Prince Edward and Giselle. One of the contest judges was Mona May, who was the actual costume designer on Enchanted, which makes their win even more impressive!
Merida from Brave was awarded the Best Recreation award. With her cascading locks and gorgeous embroidered gown, we’d have to agree! (Even without that bow pointing at us!)
Congratulations to all the cosplayers!
