I wanted to find a Disney girl to cosplay that would suit me and Vanessa seemed like the best option(though I'm not very good at being evil for pictures it seems). The outer layer of the bodice is made with a navy paisley jacquard and the skirt is made out of a periwinkle satin back shantung. The bodice is three layers thick and I also made a petticoat to go with the skirt. The seashell is from a child's Little Mermaid dress up kit that I painted and restrung(btw, it sings). Now I just need to find some other Little Mermaid cosplayers to take pictures with!
