Costume Information

My gosh what a long Character Variant title haha!! Anywho, This will be about one Ariel costume that will be half bought, half made as it's only for my Disney Birthday Bash (think it's becoming a tradition now haha) as myself and friends will be going bowling as disney characters in February XD!!!

So it's just a random little cosplay that becomes suitable for bowling as I dont think any of Ariel's (or any of the princess's dresses for that matter!) are bowling suitable lol!!

So I'll be taking inspiration from her mermaid form color wise so it represents Ariel but making it humanoid and 'hipster' LOL! I think this will be quite funny to wear and fun!

I'll probably use for small cosplay gathering/meets too to get the most of the money I'll be spending on the jeggings.

Shopping List

Green super skinny pants£5.00Bought
mens purple tshirt that was edited£2.50Bought


my tattoos (Posted 13th February 2012)

I've decided also not to cover my tattoos as its hipster Ariel and not a full on Ariel cosplay, so it will fit ^_^

Also, it saves me using more of my tattoo concealer and getting the bathroom covered in sealing powder again when I need it for Hyper Japan for the saturday anyway. ^_^ XP!

I'm really looking forward to doing this on Saturday as though it's a closet cosplay, its a fun cosplay and an everyday thing, that if there are ever any cosplay meets that I attend this year, I can wear it to them whilst being comfortable.

ideas spurring! (Posted 13th February 2012)

So... the last few days whilst I've been il my creative juices have been flowing in my brain lol

I've been wondering whether or not to add a slogan/image onto the over shirt of this "costume". I was thinking of stencilling out and putting in white fabric paint in block color, a dinglehopper on the front and on the back putting '06 Triton's Girl". Taking inspiration from the pink ladies jackets in Greese lol

Now... the party is on Saturday... so I dont have much time think about it... so should I or shouldn't I? That is the question!

tshirt (Posted 1st February 2012)

I managed to pick up a guys xsmall purple tshirt today which I edited into a cropped baggy "hipster" girly top and I'm really pleased with the outcome!

I love changing guys tops into girlie ones its so much and doesn't require anything but a pair of scissors and a bit of imagination! WIN! Pic on your left is what the top looked BEFORE I customised it. Pic in the 'photos' section is the finished product.

I'm now considering this costume complete as the outfit is fully done now. I MIGHT paint on a slogan onto the top IF i can think of one i like and wil fit lol
