Yay! I just finished my first (I can't believe it took me this long) Ariel costume last night (aside from a few more tweaks that is).

As far as the groups go I usually feel weird when it's friends that decide to do the same costume but other than that it's fair game. Unless you create an original character or version of the character (Lady Joker) I don't think people have the right to complain. :p

Oh can't wait to see your Ariel!

Yeah there are times when it's appropriate to be upset when someone "steals" your own design. I would not be happy about a direct knock off of say my Queen of the Night costume but another take on the concept of Queen of the Night - bring it on! To claim "dibbs" on something you can't in anyway claim the copyright on (like a Disney Princess in any of their variations) is just silly. As you say - recreations and reproductions are really fair game.
