    I totally get why Disney Merketing changed Ariel's dress to green as being part of her overall colorway. I doubt that guppies would call out a Princess Ariel on it in person. To me, it would be the hair that made the iconic statement.

    Nah. Not the hair color. People have said I was Ariel even when I had a black tail with a black swimsuit on!

    Most parents just associate tail wearing with Ariel.

    My beach swim few weeks back, a Dad carrying his little girl, came up to me and said, "Oh she just wanted to say hi to Ariel".

    We both knew I wasn't anywhere close to Ariel's colors, so I replied, "No. I'm not Ariel. I'm Ariel's Chinese cousin from Singapore." Little girl was still happy with that.

    In my opinion the Ariel in her blue 'walking around' dress is the most iconic for me other than her tail.

    I get why Disney changed her dress to green, - to match her tail and to have a different color than Aurora (normally shown in her PINK dress).

    Trying to keep each character to a color scheme so kids don't confuse them. Which is why Aurora gets the pink dress rather than her blue one- it gets mistaken for Cinderella. Not because of their faces/dress patterns but because of the colors.
    Blonde hair and a blue dress = Cinderella
    Blonde hair and a pink dress = Aurora

    Bright red hair and a green outfit = Ariel
    Dark crazy red hair and a dark blue/green outfit= Merida

    Those 2 sets of characters are most commonly mistaken for each other. Which is one of the reasons you will not see the face characters together (other than in parades).

    Also... How come there are no Disney princesses with a purple dress? Why is it pink or blue or green?

    Rapunzel has a purple / pink dress so does Sofia (from a disney channel show).
    As well as the Mulan face character has a pink outfit.

    And that doesn't even include the 'Villains' outfits.
    The least common color is Orange.

    The reason they most commonly use the outfit from the first movie is because about 99.9 % people see the 1st movie first, and then recognize that character from the first movie outfit- keeps it easy for kids. Its kinda like how cartoons have characters where the same clothes day in and day out.

    Oh the princess dress colour thing was more directed at the marketed princesses. (Wendy, Meg, Jane, Alice and other of the ousted Disney princesses I know what colours they have :P ) though I did seem to forget about rapunzel and Princess Sofia.

    and don't even get me started on Mulan she is supposed to be in her battle armour and carry a sword ��

    I remember when they had that Mulan doll that allows you to cut her hair with her sword. It was a doll made out of bad assery.

    That whole movie was unbelievably lazy. I just don't think anyone cared. I assumed that at far as the higher ups at Disney were concerned those movies didn't exist, and were given less importance than a Disney Channel original movie. It's really annoying too, cause there are so many people who are so passionate about these characters. Imagine what anyone here would do if they were given the job of making an original movie with Ariel.

    Weirdly, I've had kids ask if I'm Melody from Little Mermaid II. Which is weird because I'm blonde an my tail is purple, and Melody has black hair and a red tail.

    Well as you can probably tell I really like the second movie and Melody. As a kid I identified with her much more than Ariel, even if the movie and songs were suckier. It makes me really sad she doesn't get a disney face character.

    Oh, haha, not sure if it is the same one, but I had a collective disney princesses game for my game boy that had a little game with three levels for each princess. Ariels was always my favorite. Even if I could never make it to the third level, her second level with Ariel and the trident was the best

    I actually cosplay as Ariel at Phoenix Comicon every year! I personally think that her town outfit is the most recognizable since she wears it for most of the film!
