Ursula Costume Makeup Ideas

Dressing up like Ursula The Sea Witch from Disney's The Little Mermaid is fun and easy with these awesome DIY makeup tutorials and costume ideas.

Ursula is a sea witch that's part octopus and part human. She has a large presence with purple-toned skin and white hair.

In the past she lived in King Triton's royal palace and used her eels - Flotsam and Jetson - to talk to Princess Ariel and convince her that Ursula could help her become human so that she could be with Prince Eric.

In exchange for Ariel's voice, Ursula makes a deal with Ariel to transform her for three days into human form. If Ariel can receive a "kiss of true love" from Eric within these three days she can stay with him forever, but if she cannot, then Ariel will transform back into a mermaid and belong to Ursula for eternity.

Yeeeeeees, hurry home, princess. We wouldn't want to miss old Daddy's celebration, now, would we? Huh! Celebration indeed. Bah! In my day, we had fantastical feasts when I lived in the palace. And now, look at me - wasted away to practically nothing - banished, and exiled, and practically starving, while he and his flimsy fish-folk celebrate. Well, I'll give 'em something to celebrate soon enough. Flotsam! Jetsam! I want you to keep an extra close watch on this pretty little daughter of his. She may be the key to Triton's undoing…

To look like Ursula, you'll need:

  • Lavender colored skin with a mole on your chin
  • Dramatic high-arched brows with dark blue eye shadow
  • Wild silver/white hair
  • Dark dress with six tentacles (she's human on top but octopus from the waist down)
