How to Dress Up as Princess Ariel (Disney's The Little Mermaid)

Little Mermaid Sexy Dress Costume
So, I've been having a lot of trouble finding a Little Mermaid costume that actually looks like Ariel from the movie - a lot of costumes marketed this way are just sort of generic mermaid costumes, and we can do better than that!

Adult Mermaid Costume
The closest single set costume I've been able to find is the costume featured above. It has the right color tail and bikini top, plus it shows off your midriff in a really sexy way. You can get the matching wig for it here. If you want something that shows off a little less, the one on the right is the best option

If you aren't shopping on a budget and want something a little more accurate, then here is what I recommend you pick up. On the right is a beautiful green mermaid tail that the seller will make and customize to your measurements. Pick up one of those, and combine it with a beautiful red wig like this one.

Little Mermaid Tail Skirt
Then, you will need a purple bikini top. There are a number of options here. The first, and the easiest, is to pick up a plain purple bikini top like this one, or if you want to show of a bit less skin, a purple crop top like this one.

Alternatively, you can browse Etsy for an actual purple seashell bra - there are a number of shops that sell beautiful hand made replicas of Ariel's top, making this the best option for accuracy! If you fancy doing your own arts and crafts, you can paint this seashell bra purple yourself.
