My daughter is OBSESSED with the Disney Princesses.  Because her favorite is Ariel (and because I am never one to turn away from dressing the whole family thematically), we all dressed as different characters from The Little Mermaid. 

Enjoy the pictures...and thanks for looking!

My daughter as "Ariel":

Handmade detachable purple crepe-backed satin seashell bra and green satin and "fancy fabric" tail.  Purchased leotard and wig.

My husband (in a weird twist of fate) as "Prince Erik":

Blue wool-blend pants, white cotton/poly shirt (over a white T-shirt due to cold weather!) and velveteen sash.  Borrowed boots.

Me as "Ursula the Sea Witch":

What?  I always look like this.  Wink 
Black velvet with purple poly-ish lining on the tentacles.  Suction cups are fabric covered napkin rings.  Actual sea shells as necklace and earrings.  Purchased wig and lavender T-shirt.

You crack me up!! These costumes are great. I wish my husband would be a sport and dress up.  I wanted to make my daughter a mermaid costume but ran out of time because I had to make my son's costume at the last minute.  These are so great, I love the ursula costume, that is fantastic!

Fantastic! I was Ursula too, which was a fun costume to make! (I posted the tute over here) I didn't have the rest of the 'gang' like you did, though! You all are super cute!
