This homemade costume for women entered our 2018 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Simona, the 'Ursula' costume creator:

I made this costume because Ursula is my favorite villain of all time! I wanted to wear this to Mickey's Halloween Party and I received such positive feedback from everyone! I even had some official Disney characters that work there come up to me to take photos with me! I also wore it and walked around in public at several places and people stopped me for photos! It validated the 120+ hours I spent making this costume! It was such an honor! I am not a professional costume maker, so for me it was really special to have people stopped me to tell me how amazing I looked! My mom used to sew when I was a kid and I'd watch her. I was never taught how to sew. My mom is no longer alive, so I wanted to do this in her honor. I crossed my fingers and toes hoping that I could do it and I think I made my mom proud!
My costume was sewn by me. Some of it was machine sewn and some hand sewn. I made my costume out of satin material. The body is made out of black and then I used purple and black satin for the tentacles. I stuffed them with a heavy wire to keep the tentacles stiff and then stuffed them with pillow stuffing. I attached each tentacle to the body by hand sewing them. I used purple mesh tubing for the suckers. I cut them according to the size I needed and then hot glued each one into a circle shape onto the tentacles. Inside the suckers I added some glitter glue to give some depth. For the necklace I bought a real shell at a craft store and glued a satin cord it make it into a necklace. I added tiny lights inside the shell to give it the glow. I also bought the shells for the earrings at a craft store and painted them purple. I added purple glitter to make them sparkle and then attached a hook onto them to make them into earrings. I also glued nails that I painted black with red glitter. I bought a cheap bob type wig from a Halloween store and spray painted it white with grey on the sides and then styled it with lots of hairspray to give it that Ursula look giving it a wavy spikey look! I used airbrush body paint to cover my body. I had to mix several colors to get that perfect periwinkle color for Ursula's skin and then I painted my face to look like her! I spent about $250 dollars for all the supplies, fabrics, make up, body paint and accessories to make this costume.
