A word from Nicole, the 'Mermaid in Aquarium' costume creator:
My daughter wanted to be a mermaid and we needed to come up with a way to keep her warm. So we decided to make an aquarium. We used card board and made the tank, used duck tape for the edges and sides. We also used a 3M window insulator kit for the glass sides and to block cold or wind. Paint and stuffed fish for props and stickers on the back wall to make it look like fish swimming further away. We used a cup from a Styrofoam egg carton for a jellyfish with pipe cleaners, a bubble gun for the under water bubble effect and a heat blanket for warmth and a wagon to haul. We had so many compliments and people were just amazed.
