Ariel and Ursula from ‘The Little Mermaid’ Costumes


Who said best friend Halloween costumes can't be enemies? We love the Disney princess and Disney villian duo costume, especially Ursula and Ariel from The Little Mermaid. These two cosplayers showed off their epic looks (with perfect hair and makeup) on DeviantArt—but non-redheads can totally score an Ariel wig to make it work. We love the idea of rocking mermaid leggings, her iconic seashell bra top, and the wig for Ariel, while Ursula can snag this all-in-one, easy costume(wig included). Would rather be part of this world than under the sea? We also adore this Snow White and Evil Queen BFF costume that's both creepy and cute.

YouTuber Bea Jonite takes you step by step through how to perfect Cruella de Vil's makeup and fashion look. You can also score a wig online if that's easier than manipulating your own hair, and shop Etsy for a dalmation-print shawl or coat to top off the villaness Halloween costume.
