Wednesday Workout Cosplay: Ariel (The Little Mermaid)
Being in the water; hair flowing in the ocean; and abs of steel from mermaid kick/swimming!
So I--like many a young girl in the 90's and today--naturally gravitated to Ariel from Disney's The Little Mermaid.
Ariel is a part of the feisty princess era from the 90's. She
|It's the dark hair & blue eyes I think|
Since we're talking mermaids, and oceans I will start with a VERY cute swimsuit, that looks like it could hold up in some surf (just be cautious of big waves)! I think its adorable! (This and this are cute too!)

After finding the above swimsuit at Hot Topic, I looked for other Ariel accessories and found the PERFECT thing for all of us "bright young women" who are attempting to walk/run on land.
|Ok, it's not seashell bra, but it is a really cool sports bra!|
|Hideous? YES! Comfortable? HELL YEAH!|
Remember last week's post featuring Cinderella? I featured this and this by Groovy Baby Action Gear from Etsy!
Well, she also has A LOT of other character items for cosplaying geared towards fun runs and working out!
Like these Little Mermaid one's being worn by your's truly!
|You can find them here at her store!|
I ran with them on Monday, and, Tuesday and they were a lot of fun. I'm going to try my hand at a product review (hopefully tomorrow or Friday). But the one thing I will go ahead and say up front: They are so fun!!! And it's nice to add a little pizazz to your workout attire! They are so cool (and as my husband made the note that they can double as Poison Ivy as well as Ariel!).
And now for what felt like the most difficult playlist to come up with, but, I feel like I got to do secret "shout outs" to parts of the movie and other characters...totally beach friendly dude! (Also, check out Sade's Mermaid, it's too slow for workouts for me, but its so relaxing!)
Hope you enjoyed this!
Did you ever wish you were a mermaid/merman?
