Mermaid Costume

Full costume

Costume type:  Costumes for Women
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for women entered our 2013 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Katie, the 'Mermaid' costume creator:

I had a bunch of old CDs that I didn't listen to anymore and as I was going through them to toss them out I thought that they looked a bit like fish scales, and that's where my idea was born. I found a green dress at Good Will and my mom helped me cut off the top, put an elastic waistband in and attach tulle at the bottom to look like a fish tail. I then cut up a couple dozen Cds into quarters and found a strong fabric glue to attach them to the skirt. For the top I bought a foam seashell bra colored it purple and sewed it onto a bra and hot glued a bunch of beads on. I topped off the costume with a seashell headband that I made by hot gluing some shells and pearls to a headband. It was fun to make and fun to wear!
