I’m going to say it – the real victim of the Little Mermaid was Ursula.
You may realise, after my last post, I’m following a Merps (AKA Derp/Silly Mermaid) theme. This look is a little less OTT and a little more wearable… not a lot. A little… A Little Mermaid (lol Pun). Now, Ursula was originally (in the novel) a “neutral enabler” in the Disney animated version – she was a full fledged b!tch.
BUT, for all us brainwashed land based
Monsters masses… this Chick really couldn’t catch a break. Seriously – bested by a Sheltered, Mute, Ginger Red-head, with borderline psychopathic infatuation with ANOTHER SPECIES ENTIRELY! WHY DOES NO ONE WORRY ABOUT THAT?! Omg, that manatee sure is attractive – wonder how much he benches?! I should stalk him. I should steal his Sh!t! THAT’S INSANE! Not even PETA would be cool with that level of animal love. Blek!
Poor Ursula, seriously misunderstood. On point makeup, check. Strong brow game, Check. Good accessorizing, check. Shrewd judgement, subject to review. Contract Management skills, again… needs work. See me after class.
I can’t even. Legit. Can’t even watch that animation anymore. If she’d just put term on the agreement like: “Oh yeah and if time runs out you’re heads gonna explode.” Or “You’ll turn into a Nokia 3310 … with no charger (then no one will want Ariel).” Legit … any real repercussion for not being able to – let’s see – close the deal WITH THE BLOKE YOU’VE BEEN CONSISTENTLY STALKING FOR AGES, YOU MASSIVE CREEPER. So infuriating, kids today – have it too easy.
Although imagine if Eric and Ariel met over Tinder, wouldn’t matter what she sounded like – if they both had fingers and a passable face. Lol. Although, my Gaydar has been opertional from a young age… and Eric gave out some strong signals; hair, teeth, voice, dimples, fashion sense, … although, if he was actually gay… he’d 100% ditch Ariel for a Ursula-hag – more eccentric, stronger brow and make-up game. Fabulous.
Get this look – black out all your talons. Feature talon, layer in 2x varying sized of hexagonal and fine blue powder glitter (AB greens, purples and blues – Ursula colour pallet, whoo), topcoat with gloss. All other talons, make a purple/blue glitter paste – create a reverse French Manicure, gloss top coat the glitter. Matte out the black still visible. Be careful with the linework on this one, I drooped the lines down one side of each talon for added effect.
Really fun way to break up the saccharine sweetness of standard Mermaid looks, that and Usula is a BADA$$. Even if she was done away with the business end of a galleon. P.s Eric is the only Disney Prince to kill someone… and Ariel still wants to marry him. They deserve each other. On that subject, her dress/viel/crown combo was TERRIBLE! Pre-Princess Post-Peasant Cinderella’s threads were nicer. Le Gag.
So what you think, Darling?
Share your experiences with making poor agreements, did you totally miss judge someone? Did they stab you with the business end of a Galleon Ship? Did you learn from your mistakes? Ursula didn’t… *sigh*
