A word from Karissa, the 'Ursula the Sea Witch' costume creator:
This Halloween I chose to be Ursula the Sea Witch from the Little Mermaid. I spent around $66 for my whole costume. I broke the costume to 4 pieces: the top, the pencil skirt with the tutu and ribbon flare, the Flotsam and Jetsam stole, and the 6 tentacles. I used one of my retro halter tops as the top pattern and I made the top from a black pillow case, thin black elastic lining and squeezy paint. Next I made a form fitting pencil skirt from an old black mattress cover and free handed the pattern to better fit to my body. I bunched the purple and black tutu fabric and hot glued black ribbon to where the tutu fabric was gathered and sewed it to the pencil skirt. The tentacles were the trickiest part of the entire costume, I drew out in a light pastel in additional black fabric from Joann's and leftover mattress sheet fabric the 6 tentacles and shaped them in curved shapes and sewed them to matching undersides. I took squeezy paint to create the tentacle rings and glow in the dark puffy paint on the tops of the tentacles and my top. I made the necklace shell and earrings from clay, I shaped, baked them in the oven and painted the shell earrings and pendant with acrylic paint and cheap glitter nail polish. Prior to baking the earrings, I pressed cheap studs into the the flat side of the shells so I could later hot glued the studs in the shells. I followed a really good Ursula make up tutorial on youtube and got the base idea of my hair from a retro hairstyle book. I had a glow stick trident and I made a the shell purse from a mermaid costume sewing pattern and stitched and painted the skull detailing on the purse.
