I couldnt find a mermaid costume that I thought was cute and affordable, so I decided to make it myself. First I bought a nude bandeu bra top. Then I bought the foam sea shell bra and pearl beads. I colored the white foam shell with purple colored pencils, after that I put sparkles all over the foam shells. I then sewed the foam sea shells onto the nude bandeu bra and sewed on the pearl beads where I wanted them. I LOVED how this turned out! I had such a fun time making it and wearing it! Everyone couldnt believe that I had made it myself! The top was time consuming, but so worth it.
