This homemade costume for women entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Stephanie, the 'Ursula the Sea Witch' costume creator:

Ursula costume is homemade. Thinking that the tentacles would be too heavy to wear all night we decided to make un underskirt. The underskirt was constructed and a hula hoop was attached to the bottom. Each tentacle was made, stuffed and wired to hold shape. Kids craft foam was cut into circles glittered and hot glue on as suction cups. The wire was then tightly wrapped around the hoop then duct taped. The tentacles were then brought to the outside dress and hook and eyes attached for easy removal. The whole outfit was no heavier than a wedding/prom dress. The shell around the neck was made from model magic and painted gold. A ribbon was attached with hot glue. Jetsom and Flotsam were a homemade pattern sketched out. Nice added touch.

I absolutely love your costume! I want to do it this year and this has to be by far the best homemade version I have seen. I would really love to know how you created it.. Your instruction is a bit unclear, would you mind tellin me step by step how you created the costume so I could have a chance at having a killer costume this year? Haha

#11 comment by Stephanie colvin October 4, 2015

I bought 2 prom dresses from goodwill. I kept the top dress intact and cut the top off the other. I attatched a hula hoop to the bottom dress using black duct tape to hold the shape. I dont have a pattern for the tentacles i just made up a shape. I bought black and purple satin. Cut out shape and sewed them together. Stuffed them lightly. I folded a wire coat hanger and crammed it down inside leaving ends hanging out. I attached them to the hula hoop wrapping the extra wire around it then duct taping them. I used alot of tape. I put large hook and eyes on each one. With both dresses on i added the second hook and eye to the outter dress. I hope between the directions up top and these you can make some kind of sense from them.

thank you!!!

#13 comment by Beth February 23, 2017

So did the coat hanger reach all the way to the ends of the tentacles?

#14 comment by Stephanie February 23, 2017

I opened up 2 wire coat hangers and connected them to each other. I made a large V and pushed it inside.

#15 comment by Jannette September 21, 2017

#18 comment by Laura September 23, 2017

how much fabric did you buy?

#19 comment by Stephanie Colvin September 24, 2017

I have no idea the yardage. I used the back of wrapping paper and to draw out my tentacles and then knowing I could probably get two I did the math. Sorry not much help.

#20 comment by Nick October 1, 2017

Would you mind emailing me those pointers? My little girl wants to be Ariel, so my wife is going as Ursula. ndemoss{at}yahoo.com
