Ariel (Kiss the Girl ) - Disney's The Little Mermaid





I was actually at war with myself trying to decide whether I wanted to do this dress for Ariel.

It's not that I hate it, far from it actually, it's just this version of Ariel is EXTREMELY overdone. Every Ariel cosplayer has or will eventually do this version. That's why I didn't want to do it.

But I got inspired by my friend Victoria who did this version for Halloween so I thought I would at least try it. >.>

I ended up having a lot of fun making this costume, More than I should have XDD The top was made out of a very light cotton fabric, I ended up finding it by chance on a trip to Joann Fabrics XDD So I just kinda went with my gut and bought it ^^ The fabric is super fun to work with and It's perfect for warm days ^^

The skirt was made out of a turquoise stretch fabric, kinda like materials used in swimsuits ^^ The material was actually a lot thicker than I thought but the material likes to slide around on my machine...>.> so I had to go back and fix the panels a few times. XDD

The corset I just got lucky with XDD I found it on Amazon for $30 XDD It was the perfect color and the perfect shape. So I had to go for it, finding that thing was tricky because I wanted the corset to be a nice navy blue. Not black, since it's more accurate to the film and I think the dress compliments the corset really nicely. ^^

I'm planning on debuting this for Mickey's Halloween Party at Disneyland this year ^^ I'm so excited, since I've never actually been to Disneyland in costume on Halloween before. Actually...scratch that, I've never been to any theme park in costume. So I'm super stoked for this ^^

You have no idea how happy it makes me that you've used a blue corset 8D

Awww thanks. It looks navy blue in the film anyway and using a straight flash corset would look too awkward with the fabric I chose

A Possible New Bow might be coming soon :D

Like my mermaid fin, my blue dress might receive some minor alterations to it ;D

Mostly I'm getting a new hair bow and the corset will be adorned with some blue rhinestones. That's pretty much it. So yeah, that and a restyle on my current Ariel wig, courtesy of my lovely merbuddy TheAngryTeacup who offered to style my wig free of charge :)
