ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) -- A creative costume based on a classic Disneyland Park rollercoaster was a standout at the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim on Friday.

Disney fan Tina Elliot wore a Big Thunder Mountain Railroad dress that covered her from head to toe.

Not only was the life-like gown three-dimensional, the costume also had a mini train traveling on a tiny railroad track around her body.
