Three Tutorials at Once! Hipster Ariel Costume

Hey, there, Recon Artists!

Last fall, in November 2014, I was in a play called The Beauty Pageant. My character was from New York, and actors are instructed in the script to come up with their own talent for the talent portion of the show, based on what the actor is actually proficient in. My director asked me to pick a fun song to sing. I wanted something simple, that I already knew by heart and that wasn't too challenging but would add something to my character, and that I could somewhat pull off with a Brooklyn accent. I chose "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid.

My director then asked me if I could put together a Hipster Ariel costume, which of COURSE to me screams t-shirt recon! So here they are, newly posted to, my THREE-in-one Hipster Ariel Costume tutorials, all based on projects from Megan Nicolay's Generation T. Enjoy!


Betcha on land they understand
Bet they don't reprimand their daughters
Bright young women, sick of swimmin'
Ready to stand
