Coolest DIY Ursula from The Little Mermaid Halloween Costume Idea
What do you do with seven old bridesmaids dresses!? Take one and make it into tentacles!!!!!! Brides always say “oh sure, you can wear it again for sure!” well I decided this year I had to wear one again!!!!!
The DIY Ursula from The Little Mermaid Halloween costume idea could be made, but I knew it was going to be a serious process! It started with cutting large triangular shapes into a long black skirt I wore last year in a wedding in Nashville. I spent hours cutting and sewing bright purple fabric to the skirt as well to create the underside of the tentacles. I used large sequins for the “sucker” part.
After making much of my squid like skirt I decided my best friend should go as the evil Flutasum and Jetsum! Then began stage two… I lucked out and found snakes at a local toy store that moved and wiggled and lit up and made scary noises! amazing! so I took them apart and fashioned them into eelish shapes :)
Once I got that down, I had to work on my own costume again and figure out a way to attach my tentacles upright. I took fishing line and attached it so when I walked it looked like I was swimming!
My Halloween night was great!!!! People were belting out the words to “POOR UNFORTUNATE SOULS!” the entire night! NYC became filled with the Disney spirit! It was a blast!
