The Little Mermaid

Last Updated: 07-02-2011


I made this costume because along with her wedding dress its been my dream costume. Basic construction of the tail was pretty easy, but because I have weird body shape I couldn't get the tail to fit snug around my ankles (ankles=tiny-rest of legs= not tiny lol) but for a first try I'm pretty happy with the outcome. To make the fins I used florist wire to get the shape then covered with a mesh like material. ^_^ The shells I made out of broadway inspired shells- then added craft foam to get the accurate shaping and covered with a stretchy lycra jersey fabric and outlined the edges of the craft foam with glitter to give it a shimmer effect! I will be making a version 2 of this though for a summer photoshoot either this year or next year to go with my friend's Vanessa cosplay. ^_^ I'm also lucky to have hired out a wheelchair without problems for the upcoming event so I don't have to hop/waddle around in it all day YAY! My friend is being my Eric too, then I will be doing a comedy skit with my new mate who is Jack Sparrow! I'm so excited to debut this!!
I've already put that I'm retiring it after the event due to making a version 2 of it at a later date.
