DIY Little Mermaid Costumes for the Family

Do you have the same problem as us?  When searching for a costume for all 4 Family Members, there are many times which I go bananas because both kids can’t agree on ANYTHING. Our Alvin & the Chipmunks Family costume took a little convincing for Love, but she eventually agreed…  because I promised to make her an Ariel Costume as well.  The little one got 2 Halloween Costumes out of the deal… TWO!

For Halloween, Z wanted to be a Super Hero and Love wanted to be a Princess…  Which does not work for this Mama, because I need to have a Family Costume.  Alvin & the Chipmunks was a happy compromise and for Love, we adjusted her costume to have a glittered green and hot pink skirt for Theodore, but she was still disappointed because there was not enough “Glitter, Shimmer, and Sassy!”  This is how Love earned herself a second costume…  Ariel.

This costume took a little planning and shopping, but I was able to create a “Glitter, Shimmer, and Sassy” costume for Lily and a fun Flounder shirt for myself.  If you are a little unsure about a little sewing and t-shirt designing, I’ll be more then happy to help you out with a link to purchase all your own Flounder shirt and Ariel t-shirt


This is how Love & I became the Ariel & Flounder for Halloween 2016.  Click any of the images for our easy DIY Instructions for an Ariel & Flounder Family Costume:


As a Side Note:  Many, Many of the costumes we have created are also available in a DIY Kit in our online shop at  Happy Halloween Shopping!
