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

A word from Mandee, the 'The Incredible Mermaid Girl' costume creator:

This is my baby girl, Sadie Jean on her very first Halloween as part of a traveling side show appearing as the Incredible Mermaid Girl! I knew I wanted to make an infant costume that included a stroller so a traveling side show seemed like the perfect costume.

I created her stroller cover using foam core as the fish tank frame; blue fabric, glitter tulle & clear plastic Christmas ornaments for the water; and foam core for the signage & held it all together using a glue gun. I attached the whole contraption to the stroller (a Britax B-agile) using Velcro Garland Tie and all that was missing was a fat little mermaid to go inside. I created her mermaid costume using a onesie she already had and some felt pieces as scales. The only items I bought for this costume was some felt and the plastic Christmas ornaments...everything else was leftover from other projects.

She was a big hit out on the trick-or-treat circuit!

What a cute costume - scales, a mermaid tale, little pasties, and a sand dollar in her hair. What more could any mermaid want.

Geesh, how do you have the time to be so AWESOME?! This is nothing short of genius. Sadie really knows how to hold a bubble without popping it too.
