Little Mermaid and Her Sebastian Couple Costume
Me and my boyfriend love Disney (one of the places we fell in love was Disneyland), so we decided to be something Disney related this year for Halloween. I also have been wanting to be a mermaid for Halloween the past few years, so this worked out perfectly. I was pushing for him to be Prince Eric (Little Mermaid’s husband), but he disliked his character and preferred Sebastian’s character over his.
We both hand-made our own costumes (except our bottoms and his t-shirt) and cost very minimal to make. For the Little Mermaid, I used a beige strapless bra that I already had at home. The only things that I bought were purple and beige beads, which cost only two or three dollars on amazon and also bought a foam seashell bra, which I easily found through a google search and cost around ten dollars. The seashell bra comes in a beige color, so I colored the seashall bra with a purple pencil. Neither me or my boyfriend knew how to sew, so I used hot glue to stick the foam seashell bra onto the beige bra. I was actually surprised that it stayed on and it still is in tact as of today. Afterwards, I again used hot glue to paste on the beads one by one, which was a very tedious process. Making the bra took me longer than three hours to put together, but it was well worth it in the end. Girls kept asking me where I bought my costume and were shocked to find out that I made the bra myself.
