If you have a little girl, Disney Princesses are probably a part of your life in some way. My daughter has always loved them, with a preference for some of the more strong willed princesses. I think Ariel falls into that category. I had fun making this Ariel Disney bound and sharing it with my daughter.

Disney Bounding is the act of dressing to represent a Disney character. It is not wearing costumes, but putting together an outfit that would be perceived as a regular outfit, but could also be identified as being reminiscent of a Disney character.

Disneyland and Walt Disney World both prohibit adults from entering the parks wearing costumes. This ensures that children do not confuse regular park goers with Disney characters. Disney Bounding began when a Disney enthusiast wanted to show her love of Disney characters, without breaking the dress code rules of the Disney Parks.

Obviously the necklace is made with The Little Mermaid in mind, but the rest of the pieces were not. I think it’s a cute outfit and it doesn’t take a lot of imagination to realize it is Ariel. Of course some fins would have really sealed the outfit!

Could you identify it as Ariel right away? Is there anything you would do differently?

If you liked this Ariel Disney bound, you will probably like the Merida Disney Bound too! Check back next week to see another Disney bounding idea.
