Ursula and her cadre of Poor Unfortunate Souls – The Poor Unfortunate Souls manipulate Ursula’s tentacles on puppet sticks – very creepy.

Poor Ariel, can you imagine how creepy it is to have Ursula’s tentacles pawing at her?

Little Mermaid – Costume photos

We haven’t had time to get “Little Mermaid” formal pictures taken yet – so we are kind of adding a few pictures here and there. If you want to see more please take a look at our FaceBook page “Heartland Costumes”

Here is a picture of some of our costume builders modeling their work:
