Couple's costuming made easy with Ariel and Eric from The Little Mermaid. While a mermaid tail is super fun I figured it would be even better to go with her new legs. All you need is an oversized white t-shirt, some rope and starfish for her and a white button down, blue slim fitting pants and an old red tee to create his sash.
Supplies:
Fabric Glue or Glue Gun or E6000
Starfish
Comb
Rope
Scissors

With the E6000 attach starfish to comb, let cure for 24 hours.  

Cut the collar off of the white shirt

Mark holes and cut where on the top left shoulder to attach the rope (this saves you from having to randomly wrap the rope around body). Add about 3ft of rope to hole, making the top the center piece.  

Cut a second hole a few inches down near your chest for the front piece of rope.  

Next, on the right shoulder put a hole through the front to back to the shirt to create a cold shoulder effect. Add another 3 feet of rope to wrap around.  

Finally cut seaweed like pieces of fabric from the green shirt and glue around dress. Pieces should be at least 6” long. Use as little or as many as you’d like to finish it.

When putting on the dress wrap the rope around your waist, bust and hips - give the shirt a little tug for the ‘loose sail like’ effect. Add comb to your hair and find your Prince Eric.
