You might want to be more specific. I would starting looking at patterns first of all and make a mock up costume out of cheap fabric before you actually start working with the real costume fabric.

I think the top is a very, very light powdery blue, the corset-ish part is black or dark brown, and the skirt is a darker blue. However, I'm not entirely sure...it's been a while since I've seen the movie.

It's a very pale powder blue, as for the corset I've seen most ppl make it in black or a deep navy blue. I personally don't like haveing a blue skirt and blue shirt so I used navy for the corset and royal blue for the skirt.

In the movie, her bow is the same color as her shirt, but i went and used my skirt fabric because i liked the darker blue against the red.

I personally like the darker red wigs on Ariel myself...I actually recently got a wig for another costume, but it's more a bright auburn color...not dark red, but not 'highlighter red' (great phrase!). Kinda tempted to make an Ariel costume myself now to use it more.

The brighter red wigs, in my opinion, make it look more cartoonish, while the darker red makes it look more realistic.

For a wig i recommend cosworx or amphigory's Linda wig in henna red or super saturated henna red. It's a toned down more natural looking dark red.

The linda wig has no bangs and it's easy to get the side part ariel has, it reaches my mid back so it's fairly long. Also, this wig is super thick so you can cut fibers and make extra wefts from it and it will still look good. I just finished my Ariel wig last night so I'll let you know when i upload some pics of it so you can see.
