Ariel (Ship's Sail gown) - The Little Mermaid/Disney


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

I am glad you have found a wig colour you like better. It does look very very good. I really am tempted to do Vanessa sometime, just to have photos with you hehe - (just a thought out loud)

FuriePhoenix posted on 26 March, 2010 - 12:49
that would be so cool! Sometime I really want to get a Little Mermaid group together, but not sure if there would be enough interest in it!

FuriePhoenix posted on 26 March, 2010 - 15:06
Thank you! Ive put the details in a new journal, I'm so glad with this cosplay that it's pretty straight forward to do, and comfortable (minus the rope cutting into me to keep the material in place lol)

aww thank you!!! ^.^ that means alot!

You made a very good Ariel in the dress, Cez, and you shall make her look just as good in the sail - although I doubt you'd be using a real ship's sail! Heh. There's no way Ariel would have been able to move wrapped up in canvas (believe me I know the material, I've sailed on tall ships and that stuff is HEAVY - and doesn't feel very comfortable either).

FuriePhoenix posted on 11 May, 2010 - 20:08
yeah, I'm using an old heavy weight thick curtain as it. It's an old scrap bit so it's pretty much perfect. ^.^ hehe. And that means alot to hear that, coz as sad as it sounds, Ariel was my role model when I was wee child, and all I had was disney films lol. It's no wonder she kept falling over in the material in the film lmao!

New photos are gorgeous!!

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!

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

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! Its a little darker than the promo picture shown on ebay but i think thats due to their lighting, but I LOVE it so much! Its so soft and more natural looking than my previous one. Gotta be my favourite wig ive purchased to date. Im so syked now for May's expo to come around so i can use this wig!

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!

24th March 2010

Wig bought

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.
