This is my take on Ariel's Mermaid fin from The Little Mermaid. It is what we call the "Walking Fin" for easy movement.
The shells she is wearing i have custom carved, molded, then cast in a heavy duty resin. then airbrushed and dusted, and covered in Swarovsky crystals, fresh water flatback pearls, and immitation flatback pearls. The bra piece has been hand dyed to match, and bits of "seaweed" have been added in organza, covered in hand beading of freshwater pearls and more swarovsky crystals. The tail is a mixture of spandex, organza, netting, sequins, and tons of hand sewn sequin work all around.

But I guess the dress being such an easy thing (it's a jersey tube with some bias tape) was the price I payed for THAT JACKET I seriously made 3 attempts before I got what I'm wearing in these pictures and it was CRAZY STUPID HARD GOD I actually almost gave up using pleather and opted to use denim (which I think is an acceptable alternative to her jacket) but NO I strengthened my resolved by rewatching eva AND I DIDN'T RUN AWAY which resulted in my beautiful jacket that I am super proud of *A* check out all my SUPER ACUUURATE SEAMS that shit took forever ugh, but I challenged myself, and made something I'm really proud of so whooooo level UP!
