I've wanted to go as a mermaid for Halloween for quite some time now, but this was the first year I was able to make it a reality! I think it turned out pretty spiffy...The only thing I didn't make or modify in any way is the tank top.

The full costume, on me:


A closeup of the 'seaweed' boa I made, out of yarn, scraps, and a couple of those bath poufs I unraveled.


The side of the complete costume, on my sewing dummy:


Closeup of the skirt.


Full view of front.


Closeup of the seaweed and seashell necklace:


Closeup of the seashell crown I made:


Earrings:


Bracelet:



What the crown looks like when worn:
