Costume Information

Cost : 27.69
Time Taken : 2 days

I have been meaning to do this costume for years as Ariel is my favourite Disney Princess. I'll eventually get around to remaking her mermaid version and shipwrecked outfit and I'd like to do her spangly transformation dress at some point too. I discovered a bunch of navy fabric in my collection, I'm pretty sure I've still got the blue polycotton from my abandonned/scrapped Puppetmon costume [edit: I did have this, but decided just to get real cotton anyway] of like 4 years ago and I've got enough of the right blue to make her bow already, so it's just the shoes, petticoat and some sort of cotton/silk chiffon for her top I'll need. Plus a new wig because back in the day you either had to go bright red or ginger wig-wise.

Probably for Doj-con (or whatever it's next incarnation) 2014.

This'll be so cute!

P.S Don't worry about a petticoat, she doesn't wear one with this dress c:

Aww thank you. :)

Actually she does but you can't see it in all the images, but it's cool I got a skirt to use as a petticoat fine, just need to sew the lace round the bottom. :)

Mermaid2Love, thanks for the link, I'll go check it out. I don't consider myself an Ariel cosplayer though, she's just one of the many things I cosplay, so it might not be for me. Thanks though. :)

Mostly done in a day and a half (Posted 2nd August 2012)

I just need to sew on all the corset hooks and the lace on the petticoat and tidy up the inside of the shirt. We decided not to do it for Ame in the end, sooo head start on next year then I guess.
