Mermaid Costume – Instructions for do-it-yourself

How to create your own Mermaid Costume

First of all you have to create the typical mermaid fin. You can use an elastic skirt which gets tighter towards the end of your legs. Choose a skirt which is made out of a shiny material or which is trimmed with sequins. The colour should be blue, green or gold as it should reflect fish scales. The decision of whether to create a fin at the end of your skirt or just let the hem represent such, is up to you. For the upper part of your body you can choose a tight shirt or a bikini top. Attach a net around your body and decorate this with shells,starfish and other elements found in the ocean. For the perfect mermaid hair style you can use hair clips in form of sea shells and crepe paper as seaweed.
