I created this cosplay on a whim, but actually now it is my favorite of my cosplays. Ariel has always been a big influence in my life and I love all things mermaid (probably why i'm a professional mermaid). I had seen this amazing steampunk loki and knew instantly I wanted to do something similar. I took to making it. The hat is entirely my own design and creation however the blouse and corset were purchased along with the skirts. I did all the pinning of the skirts to give them the steampunk feel. Then I made my belt pieces, I bought a solar lamp from best buy to serve as my purse, So in the end it worked as an under the sea lantern. Later the necklace was replaced with steam goggles to give it more of a steam feel. (Not Pictured) My mermaid tail hung from the back of it at later cons to give it more of a mermaid feel.
