7th January 2011: Progress well i begun to peice this cosplay together today,

i started with her corset top that i made from an old dress i had that i no longer used and it was the perfect shape for her top it already had the proper boning and shape but didnt fit at the back so i added a line of hook eyes on each side of the back to lace it up and removed the sleaves.

the skirt i made using a simple a-line pattern out of blue cotton and added a zip at the side seam that the black corset will hide as i made it with a high waist, getting the right length was tricky as the refrence photo's i found all had different lengths so i decided to make it ankle length to be on the safe side.

the bow was made from the leftover skirt fabric and attached to my red wig that i bought for my Fairy princes Ariel

the top was made with a basic long sleaved white t-shirt in cotton which i will have to dye with a light blue dye to get it in the right colour.

the shoes i had already and my court shoes are easy to walk in so i wont get sore feet :D

tip: you styled the fringe the wrong way- her's parts on the left not the right.. well it looks like you did it on the right in the photo. ^_^ (Sorry.. I'm an Ariel freak and know everything about that film!) But you look great from the photo.. love to see more photos of the actual costume

I'm a photography student at Glasgow Met and as I was helping to hang up our end of year exhibition I was most surprised to see a photo of a cosplayer, and an Ariel cosplayer at that! So being the loser that I am I thought "I'll see if they're on cosplay island" and here you are! haha.

Lovely costume m'dear! And the photos look amazing in the exhibition :D
