Costume Information

General
Time Taken : < 2 weeks

Description
This is one of my dream costumes! I LOVE disney and the little mermaid and Ariel is totally my no.1 heroine. :D It was great to cosplay as her, even if it wasn't in one of her most recognisable outfits. ^_^

Not TOO hard to make. My issue with this costume was the time frame which I had...matter of two weeks...which meant I had to rush almost all of it. If I rewear i'll try and fix the bits i'm not happy with...the shirt for one. But it serves it's purpose at the minute! Can finally say I've accomplished my goal of cosplaying from a disney film! XD

Rush rush rush! (Posted 18th October 2008)

Oh god this costume is turning out to be the biggest rush job ever. Because of uni getting in the way i've hardly had any time at all to work on it so now i'm SUPER rushing to get it done for saturday. I'm not impressed AT ALL with what i've done so far...I've not even started the skirt, it's very likely that I wont have enough material for the bow and the shirt is...not my best work at all. (Read: it's now an off the shoulder number...dont ask me why...it just is. X.X) Seeing as this is one of my dream costumes i've already decided that i'm going to be remaking it. X.X Apologies for the crappy costume in advance. :S

EDIT: Discovered that the material I bought for the skirt is TOTALLY the wrong colour...and I dont have the time (or any place that sells material nearby!) to get any more...that's...special...>_>
