|Costume type:||Costumes for Women|
This homemade costume for women entered our 2019 Halloween Costume Contest.
A word from Bailey, the 'Ursula' costume creator:
I have always wanted to embody the spirit of Ursula and had a great time making my costume. Underneath a black formal dress I’m wearing a skirt with a hula hoop sewn into the bottom of it to help attach eight handmade tentacles. The tentacles have battery operated string lights sewn into them and they are decorated with rhinestones and “suction cups” made out of circles of shimmer fabric. The insides of the tentacles were filled with batting and bent wire hangers to add form. My trident is a devil’s pitchfork spray painted gold. The shell earrings I’m wearing were made from purple clay and the necklace was a hermit crab shell spray painted gold and attached to a gold chain. On top of my head I’m wearing a tiny model ship which is attached to a headband under my wig. I also had my guest following me around with a bubble gun to help it look like I was floating on the sea floor. I also had a small bluetooth speaker sewn into my costume and it played Disney’s “Poor Unfortunate Souls”.
