Cosplayer Hannah Eva decided to experiment for Wizard World Madison and made an Ariel costume from The Little Mermaid. Since she decided to experiment at the last minute, the costume was a bit of a rush job. She made the crown, wig, top, and skirt and encountered some trials while assembling it. The night before the convention found her removing thousands of sequins she’d handsewn and resewing a bunch of them. The result is there isn’t as much detail as she wanted, but the costume is still beautiful — she won the prize for Best Female Hero in the costume contest.
I think the most clever part of the outfit is how she handled the tail. Rather than show split fins, she made the bottom look like ocean waves as they roll onto the shore.
