A word from Emily, the 'Ursula the Sea Witch' costume creator:
My mother is wearing this costume that I made (and wore the year before). I saw someone be Ursula the year before that and thought I would try my own spin. Some people are all about cute or sexy, but I am all about realism. For one day, I want to be Ursula. So, first I dyed a shirt Ursulas skin color, then made a tube top out of black, shiny fabric. Then the hard part came. I sewed the tentacles out of the black fabric and some purple fabric. I added bottons, then batting and wire inside to make it bend. I attatched it to the shirt and it was a no go. I mean, it looked amazing and so realistic, but it weighed a ton. I couldn't move or fit in the cash register at work. So, that required compromise and alterations. I unstuffed it and made it way lighter, then attatched the tentacles to the skirt so they would stay more contained. It was definitely a better option and I was so happy with how it turn out. Then I made a necklace by drilling a seashell and painting it gold. I used face paint,added big red lips, a mole and sprayed my hair, and for one day I felt like the queen of the sea.
