A word from Karina, the 'Ursula' costume creator:
The idea of Ursula has been on my mind for the last few years but i wasn't crazy about the costumes you could buy and the task of making my own seemed too daunting. However this year i got the guts to attempt my own version.
First I started with making a no sew tutu using black and purple tulle. The real construction was in the tentacles. I used purple sequin fabric and black cotton. I did not use a pattern for these. I just sewed a sock shape coming to a point on the ends. On the opposite ends I closed it with a loop so that I could run a leather belt through it. Before closing the loops each tentacle was stuffed with polyester stuffing and wire to bend them. Top was a basic tube top that was gathered at bust to give a sweetheart shape. Sea shell necklace was a painted shell using gold nail polish and embroidery thread for chain. Make-up was done by my co-worker. Hair was done by me. The only problem with the costume is the tentacles they literally latched onto furniture and people as if they were real.
The best part was having children asking to have their picture taken with me while they were trick or treating.
