Who doesn’t want to be a mermaid? Let’s just get that out of the way right off the bat. We ALLLLLL want to be mermaids. Just like Ariel, who wanted to be a part of our world. Le sigh…
This DIY Ariel Little Mermaid Halloween costume is, admittedly, not when she was a mermaid. It’s her land outfit, but is still pretty awesome. The mermaid outfit was just a little too difficult, but I’m gonna keep looking for it.

Ariel Little Mermaid DIY Halloween Costume
This Ariel Little Mermaid DIY costume was originally created in 2015. Since then, some items have sold out or become unavailable. We’ve updated the post with similar items for 2018. Links may be affiliate links.
White Button Down Shirt – A white button down shirt is a basic wardrobe staple. If you don’t already have one in your closet, pick this up, because you need it. Here’s a plus sized version.
Ribbed Tube Top – This helps give the Dirndl look, much like the Sleeping Beauty costume. Pick it up in charcoal.
Momentus Moxie A-Line Skirt – This knee length chiffon skirt is a great item for your Summer and Fall wardrobe, and it comes in plus sizes. After you’re Ariel, of course. This skirt is another great option.
SO Ballet Flats – These skimmers are just a fab wardrobe staple. Pick ’em up in Black for Ariel’s costume.
Oversized Hair Bow – All Disney princesses need a gorgeous bow in their hair. Ariel is no different, especially on land. This giant, oversized bow is her main accessory.
Long Wavy Wig in Red ($17) – This is Ariel’s crowning glory – her long, Red wavy hair. With this wig, there’s no doubt who you are. You might want to pick up a wig cap, too.
This is a great DIY Halloween Costume. It uses a lot of the same pieces as the Sleeping Beauty costume, so if you’re attending a couple of parties, you could get a two-fer for not a whole lot more.
