This Homemade Mermaid Halloween Costume was a blast to make. My daughter decided she wanted to be a mermaid for Halloween. I bought a basic pattern for a mermaid tail from Walmart. We bought some glittery fabric and sewed it up. I bought some iridescent fabric and sewed that on the bottom for the fins. It all turned out really nice and wasn’t to expensive.
The expensive part came when I decided that I wanted something original. I bought a bra and handsewed little beads and seashells on it. It turned out beautiful and added that extra touch. I then purchased a cheap blue wig and some fake eyelashes to complete the costume. My daughter wore an old ballet leotard under the entire costume, to make it a little more modest. This costume was a hit and I even was able to sell it later on eBay.
The only drawback was that it wasn’t easy to walk in but what mermaid has an easy time walking on land?
