"It's a dinglehopper! Humans use these little babies to straighten their hair out." Smiffys are here to help any fans of The Little Mermaid become part of her world with this collection of fancy dress costumes. Whether you're trying to make a splash at a birthday party, or you just need the proper attire to head on an adventure under the Sea, Smiffys have you covered with a mix of officially licensed designs, and Ariel inspired dresses and costumes. Walt Disney himself began work on the story of The Little Mermaid in the 1930s and intended for the story to be a similar adaption to Hans Christian Andersen's tale with the Mermaid dying and turning into sea foam in the end! However, (thankfully) the project was shelved to focus on other projects also in the works such asBambi and Dumbo. It wasn't until 1989 when The Little Mermaid that we know and love was released with a 'happily ever after' ending. With the help of our Ariel costume collection, anyone can be sure to feel like a true mermaid on land and in water. So, don't waste any more time! Simply find the perfect Little Mermaid costume today and start feeling like your favourite underwater heroine. For people who want to swim against the current, we have the perfect costumes in our Disney Villains fancy dress collection, that allow you to become the wicked, Sea Witch, Ursula.
