If you have a fancy dress party coming up and you’re unsure of what to wear, then why not opt for the little mermaid herself, Ariel. This article will introduce you to some of the best Ariel wigs that are available online so that you can rock the mermaid look.
Ariel is a peculiar character who doesn’t really fit in with life under the sea, and strives for life above the sea where she can be with the humans. She even collects treasures from sunken ships, things that belong to humans due to her obsession with walking amongst them. However, this eventually gets her into trouble when she meets with a sea witch who offers her human legs on the condition that she gives up her voice. Ariel of course accepts, and soon realises that she has been tricked when she fails to win the love of Eric, a human who she once saved from a shipwreck. She then has to try and get her voice back and defeat the sea witch. Her character is innocent, strong willed, and determined to get what she wants despite the many obstacles in her way. Of course, nowadays giving up your voice may be seen as symbolic of the oppression that women face, but Ariel eventually regains that voice and Eric falls in love with her, perhaps proving that you should never be somebody who you are not and you shouldn’t dull your own spark for anybody.
In terms of outfit, Ariel of course has both her human form, and her mermaid form. Her mermaid form is the most recognisable Ariel outfit. She simply has a green mermaid tail, and a purple bikini top that is made from clam shells, but one of the most prominent features of Ariel’s look is her long, bright red hair. So, let’s take a look at some of the best wigs that are available online for cosplaying Ariel.
