Making my Ursula halloween costume!

So two years ago I dresses up as a black cat for Halloween... and while out and about that crazy night I already had the best idea for next Halloween... URSULA! What a fantastic costume that would be!! So two years later, my dream finally came true... and all for 16 dollars!!
Matchin up the sides of fabric
My hand-crafted pattern made out of taped Winco bags

All legs designed

Each leg took a minimum of an hour to sew by hand. Then
I sewed up the sides of the skirt

Each leg was stuffed with pillow stuffing and a wire hanger

I pinned the skirt on me to measure, then I sewed around
and up the back to complete the bottom half

View looking down on my legs! ha ha


After using a glue stick to paint through my eyebrows, comb through and let dry (repeat) I painted on the blue eyeshadow with a wet mix. Continued the same with the purple, and finished with a black liquid eyeliner for the eyebrows! I even sewed the shell onto the black ribbon and used my black thread to create the earrings!! It was a very successful costume!! I already have my costume idea for next year!!!


  1. will you be taking orders for other Halloween costumes next year? I'm quite impressed Courtney!

  2. Oh my god! I've been wanting to do this costume ever since I did Mulan in High School. This is the first one that looks like what I came up with in my head. Thanks for giving me something to better visualize with. I wasn't sure if it would work but yours looks awesome.

    Where did you get your wig if you don't mind me asking?
