Dressing up as a Mermaid for Halloween is difficult I think because it can go in the wrong direction really fast. When people hear mermaid they probably think of Ariel, but whenever people dress up as Ariel it can be a little cheesy/kiddy. You don't have to have a swimsuit top and tail on for the costume. You can find other items with similarities that will have the same feel, but in a more adult look. With that said I chose this sequin skirt to symbolize the tail, but you can actually wear this any time of the year. I also really liked the necklace above because it's a mermaid and the tail looks like the skirt.
What do you think of the Mermaid idea for Halloween?
