I was looking through my 記事 and realised I didn't have an 記事 in which I examined Ariel in depth. I decided to amend that によって 書く about a subject it's fun to think about - Ariel's ピンク dress.
Most ファン can agree (I think) that the dress looks quite bad on Ariel. There are several reasons for this: the sleeves are ridiculously puffy and makes her arms look misshapen and the shaping of the スカート looks... Odd. I just think it's too puffy and big in general.
Another 人気 reason for the dress looking odd is that a red hair/pink dress combo doesn't work:
However, I personally don't feel this is the case. ディズニー has proven that it is perfectly capable of making a ピンク dress look super pretty on a red head (a.k.a. Giselle from Enchanted). Look how cute she looks here!
Some of あなた may now say that the outfit only works because her hair is MUCH lighter than Ariel's, but I disagree. Look what happens when we put Ariel in almost exactly the same dress:
I don't know about you, but I think she looks stunning! Why couldn't ディズニー put her in a dress もっと見る like this? A different shade of ピンク and different sleeves and Ariel's ピンク dress could have been BEAUTIFUL.
Would something like this be TOO much to ask?
I guess it could be argued that ディズニー HAD to make the dress shaped like that with odd sleeves to make it look like a ball gown, but if they had to give her a light ピンク and puffy dress, couldn't they have 与えられた something a lot もっと見る like Lottie's from TPATF? Her dress is over dramatic, but still prettier than Ariel's.
Overall, I feel that ディズニー could have made Ariel's ball ガウン look amazing if they had put a little もっと見る time and thought into it. They just had to change the shade and the shape and I would have adored it. I am really glad that they have decided to scrap the dress almost altogether now in merchandising, because it makes me a little sad to think how breath-taking Ariel could have looked.
