Thanks everyone!
Halloween was very very fun...and surprise, the next door neighbor's daughter was a mermaid too! Popular choice for our New England fishing town.
Here's the aftermath. Note the sugar-induced "hypersmile":

This shows the downward creep of the costume, inevitable after a neighborhood hike. But it also shows her little capelet and the slippers I made for her.
Fun fun fun!

Well, cool, I wasn't interested in knocking off Disney anyway!

Its all handmade except the wig base and fishy necklaces:

Love that swishy tail! There's a ton of flexi boning in it.

The 'seaweed' is ribbon and yarn with little shells I cut out of mylar:

She is very very happy...so am I! Grin
