Little Mermaid Sail Dress by Lillyxandra Little Mermaid Sail Dress by Lillyxandra
Follow my costuming & make-up on Facebook - [link]
I am so excited share a little preview of one of the costumes I worked on for Traci Hines ([link]) upcoming music video!
For the Little Mermaid Sail dress I tried to make it as sexy as possible, while keeping the look that it washed up from the sea. This costume is proof that you could put Traci in a sack and she can still look amazing! I distressed the fabric and dyed it to look like it had been rolling around the ocean. The knotted rope that ties around the hips is a slip knot, because it reminds me of a knot a sailor would use on his ship.
Look for Traci's Music video on her YouTube [link] on December 11th!

O.O that is freaking awesome! i would have never thought about making the sail dress she had in the movie into an actual dress. Not only that though, it looks good.

Man, as an amateur cosplayer, your work + Traci's awesome vid makes me wish I had the money to do so much better in my cosplays than the rough stuff I'm doing now... Awesome work on your costumes.. I might need you to make me a few some day, since my friends and I want to do Kingdom Hearts... and theres alot of Disney worlds in there lol...
