I've avoided this meme for too long. But my good buddy wanted me to do something Hipster related to match her Hipster Kida for Anime Expo this coming year. So I decided "fuck it, I'll just get it over with" since pretty much every Ariel has probably done something like this before :o

The base shirt was just a white T shirt I don't use anymore and painted a set of seashells. Unfortunately the shells aren't symmetrical and they sit slightly too high on the shirt but at least I did the paint job okay. :) I added some small flat back pearls on the shells and then cut the bottom to turn it into a crop top.

The skirt was a mini-tail I was in the process of making for a Halloween thing at Seaworld but I ended up not finishing because I didn't have enough spare fabric to work with and I didn't want to buy more. So the skirt is just a basic mystique spandex I used for my full Ariel fin that sits right above my knees. I bedazzled a corner of the skirt with rhinestones and added a ruffle on the hem. I plan on turning it into an actual walkable fin later on, similar to Traci's , but for now at least it's wearable.

Since I didn't have any hipster-esque shoes, I just wore my gold flats.

The glasses are actually 3D glasses that I kept from a trip to the movie theater :) I just punched the lenses out.

Haha. Love it.

Despite your comments, I think the t-shirt looks great. Nice work :)

Thank you so much :D Painting it was a lot of fun to say the least.
