Ariel
The Little Mermaid

Cosplayer: FuriePhoenix

Variant: Teal PARK DRESS/INSPIRED

Status: Complete

Condition: Not Set

29th March 2012: wig decisions again Sooooo after giving it some real thought I'm definitely going to buy another wig for July's wear as Ariel to go with the dress, as I feel that my current wig will look tatty compared to Tab's work on the dress haha, I'm stuck between two decisions at the moment.... (see picture) wig 1 i love for its richness in color but it looks really damn thin- it is heat resistant too so I'd straighten out some of the curls a bit as I think it's a bit too curly but its general style matches the park's wig whilst still being film accurate.

wig 2 is basically the same wig that I currently have, it's thicker looking than wig 1 and really film accurate in color but a tad shorter than wig 1.... but i know it lasts a year at least so should I stick with what i know and go with this wig? Hmmm.....

Either wig I buy I might have to buy 2 to thicken it up in at least the bangs

29th March 2012: Payment DONE! So just this minute I have sent off the last remaining £190 that I managed to get saved up and it's now been sent to Tab (KhaosKostumes) through paypal. Super duper happy I dont have to worry about that big outlay now!!

Just gotta do my measurements properly in the next couple of days and email them to him and then I'm pretty much sorted for the important things on my end for the time being! I'll probably get the character shoes around June time and possibly the new wig around May time, which again I'll either buy 2 of and re make the bangs from scratch or bu just one and add it to my current wig, but the way its going a bit ick on the ends now I might just buy 2 new wigs and start from scratch from again with the bangs lol.

So looking forward to owning this dress in July!

23rd February 2012: wig I know this sounds utterly crazy but I'm thinking in June buying yet another new wig for Ariel. I love my wig buts its beginning to get a bit clumpy/frizzy at the bottom and I think after a couple more comb throughs I'm not sure it will last for much longer....

SO i decided IF i get a new wig, I'll get a longer one and sew it into my current one as I'm reasonably happy with the bangs on it and just make my current wig longer... unless of course i can do the bangs really well on the new wig, but my current bangs have soooo many extra wefts put in to give that good amount of volume so... we'll see... I'll definitely be getting a new one for September's princess party thats for sure...

I love how this is looking like the colours of the seafoam dress from the movie. It's different from the parks costume and that makes it really special. x

Nice Ariel I never really liked that dinsey put her in this colour that she didn't wear in the film, I made her pink dress and tried to base the sleeves on the dinseyworld ones, it was hard. I kept watching youtube videos and photo close ups, from what I could see it has very little gathering along the top kind of like a fitted sleeve, and has lots og puff and gathers at the bottom then attaches to a lining unerneath. I put wadding in mine to try and get that bell puff at the bottom only, but it still didn't quite work out.
Yours are very good.

FuriePhoenix - 27th February 2013
Thanks Tracy, I actually commissioned a friend of mine to make it as I wanted someone who knew what they were doing to make it XD!
