|Cost :||£4 roughly|
|Time Taken :||i would guess about a few days when i start|
|I currently have the material, i just havent got the correct rings to punch through the material to make it look more like a sail. I also have the rope, jsut havent got the spray paint to paint it lol. Im also on the look out for a darker red wig as my current one seems to have faded and gone more orange than red red. lol|
complete! (Posted 13th May 2010)
It's finally complete! After 2 hours of getting my hands covered in brown spray paint and literally sitting on the car park floor waiting for the rope to dry (in the words of Scuttle.. "that's very boring") I got it complete!
I also managed to style the fringe yet again today and sing along to little mermaid songs as I watched the third film lmao!
Now it's just a case of minor adjustments to the rope (just trim it down a bit) nearer the time. ^.^
If no one else likes it at expo I really don't care 'coz I'm really happy with this cosplay. And I can finally start the journey of being a part of Eric's world lmao!
rope finally found! (Posted 11th May 2010)
wooooooo! I finally succeeded in finding rope for this cosplay! I also found brown spray paint in the same shop-so thank god I live near a homebase!! Although I was surprised that the member of staff wasn't surprised when I said I needed this to be dark brown for a costume as I'm wearing rope....lmao!
Now to get a decent enough day to be outside to spray paint the 4 metres of rope I have for it! phew! Slowly getting there!
Oh! Although I have no Sebastian plushie I do have a pocket now stitched into the fabric/"sail rags" lmao
Wig's arrival (Posted 1st April 2010)
So i get home after being out this morning and i spot a little brown jiffy bag on the floor indoors.. I knew instantly it was my wig and i lterally just dumped everything on my bed and couldnt get it out of the ag quick enough!
MATERIAL FOUND! HOORAH! (Posted 26th March 2010)
As the title states I have eventually found the material for this cosplay! WOOOO! *Boogies*
The pictures show how the overall look will be as a test run with my current orangey-red wig and with the wrong rope. I need to buy new rope that's either already brown or is of a material that will accept fabric spray paint. As I realised not that long ago that this rope is more acrylic nylon that's used for washing lines.. not normal rope DOH! At least that was only bought in a 99p store so not really a waste of money!
Since doing these two pictures earlier today I realised how inaccurate the wig is (or just how much im not pleased with it XD) So i cant wait to receive the other darker red wig now!
Buuuuut you get the picture of how it will look in these pictures and so do i. Now all i need to do other the rope is cut the bottom of the material off so its knee length and use that extra bit of material to make the make-shift pocket!
Wig bought (Posted 24th March 2010)
Good news: Finally got round to buying my better red wig for this and the many other Ariel cosplays of mine. Thank god I have a bank account called mother when I'm in need of cosplay stuff or stuff in general XD
Bad news: I cant find the material I've had for ages for this cosplay anywhere...I know theres two months to go before may's expo, but two weeks of April I'm in Seattle and wont have any cosplay making time. So I'm freaking it abit. I hope I find some more material in a charity shop soon or the material here at home somewhere sometime soon.
