Honestly, this homemade costume was pretty difficult to make. My mind is creative, but my body and skills just can’t keep up. I had no pattern, but there are plenty of helpful sites out there that gave me some ideas. So I got started on my Ursula costume. It was definitely trial and error. It was a lot of fun and a LOT of work.
I decided to stuff the tentacles so it made them a bit heavy, but it gave them a realistic look. I put them on a waistband and tied them up even though I had also put it around elastic. I attached suction cups to the tentacles for a realistic look.
You are just not Ursula without the perfect makeup which took some practice. Being Ursula was a blast. I had tons of people come up to me and want their pictures made. I had so many compliments and it is just so much fun being a Disney character. Halloween is my favorite.
