|Little Mermaid Costuming

So I don't know how many people have seen pictures from The Little Mermaid:|
Now I haven't heard the cast recording yet, so I can't make any judgments on the cast or the new songs, but the costuming seems a little too predictable (if that makes sense). They turned Ursula's tentacles into a hoopskirt... In the movie, I always felt her tentacles reminded me of a slightly sleazy looking nightclub gown that she may have looked good in in her younger days, but that just adds to her slinky creepy attitude, almost like a washed up vaudeville singer/dancer. Wow, that was really lengthy...
I just feel that they made it too symmetrical. But I may be biased as Ursula was always my favorite villain because she so obviously had a past and it was easy to see she was bitter because of something that happened to her in the past and that, had things gone differently, she wouldn't have become a witch. But now that she's the way she is, she revels in it and enjoys what's she's doing.
Ok that was a lot of talking; I'll go now...
