If you’re anything like me, you’ve seen oodles of awesome custom adult Disney costumes on Pinterest and Tumblr. However, I also think many of you may be like me and not have $200+ to drop on a Halloween Costume, and not be seamstresses. In 2009 I cobbled together an Ariel Costume. While pretty much everything I got is out of stres now, here’s an approximation of how to do it:
Skirt: Navy maxi skirt, Peasant skirt, or I used a swimsuit cover-up. This Splendid one is a little too pricey-check eBay and your local thrift store.
Corset: I actually got mine off of eBay, and much too big (so it fit over my blouse). Charlotte Russe has a zip-up one.
I did make my own bow, using instructions akin to this, and supplies from the dollar store.
