Mermaid costume for women: chic costume idea animated by several seashells
When it comes to a mermaid costume, we take into account two essential motifs: seashells and scales. As shown in the example above, this fairy costume is composed of two pieces in perfect harmony with each other. To save time, we advise you to order the fish scale effect skirt from specialized virtual stores.
As for the top piece of the mermaid costume, you can make it yourself in a super easy way. Get yourself a white top, a hot glue gun, and seashells of various sizes and shapes. First start arranging them on the fabric until you are satisfied with their arrangement. Then proceed to their gluing.
To finish your mermaid costume, all you have to do is give your hair some pep and make a matching make-up. As for this one, we recommend going for a rather minimalist look. Make up your face as usual creating a natural look. Then apply some light pink glittery eyeshadow, mascara and set colored rhinestones here and there using cosmetic glue. Recreate the scales pictured above using your eye shadow of choice. Pale purple is the best solution. Finally, groom your eyebrows and apply nude lipstick.

Yes, when it comes to an original Halloween costume, the mermaid is one of the designs most preferred by ladies. In addition to offering many possibilities of interpretation, this costume meets the desires of the most demanding women. The focal points of the next idea, which we are going to work out together, are the stunning wig, top and tiara. As for the skirt, you can buy it either online or in specialized carnival shops. Here, we encourage you to favor the color turquoise in order to better match the skirt to the wig. Indeed, the latter is essential in order to achieve a spectacular look. Our ultimate tip: choose a model with purple accents.
If creating the top seems too complex to you, think again! Indeed, this step is super simple but requires a lot of gluing. Get a white bra with a clean design and then arm yourself with all kinds of pearls and decorative seashells. Feel free to add rope as well as plastic seaweed for a more authentic look. Take the hot glue gun and fix the decoration according to your desires. Let dry well and you're done. If you wish, incorporate other decorative elements but be careful not to overload the whole.

The tiara is that extra touch that will make your mermaid costume even more amazing. You only need to buy a simple tiara and decorate it with the help of the marine elements. You can use the same materials as for the creation of the top. Glue a fake starfish in the middle and voila!
To complete the look of a true mistress of the ocean, get a trident, available at Halloween stores, and decorate it with rhinestones.

Mermaid girl and mother costume: opt for "twinning" this year
We recently brought you lots of DIY mermaid girl costume ideas that your little ones will surely love. But how about joining your little one on the evening of October 31 with a matching costume to wow everyone? So, don't delay and find out how to make a homemade mermaid costume! And to do this, you will need the following material:
• Spandex fabric with fish scale print (182 cm)
• Shiny stretch knit for mum's skirt (91 cm)
• Nude-colored bodysuit for mum and baby
• Glittery iron-on fabric
• Pink wig for mum
• Straight pins and cloth scissors
• Roll of kraft paper
• 2.54 cm long
elastic • Foam roller (2.54 cm long) for making the fishtail
To recreate your little girl's mermaid costume, first lay your baby on kraft paper and trace around her body by drawing a fishtail at the bottom of the stencil. Cut out. The height of the skirt is up to you. Then fold the spandex fabric in half, lay the template on it and cut the shape. Then, sew the edges of the folded fabric, as shown above, adding a seam allowance of 1.27 cm and leaving the top open (to insert the elastic).
Once everything has been sewn, place the tail on the foam and trace its outlines using a black felt as shown in the last image. Then cut the tail about 2 cm smaller than the outlines.
Turn the upper part over and sew around the edge, leaving a 5 cm opening to add the elastic. Then thread the latter and sew the loop. Leave the baby's skirt aside and take care of yours!
To make mom's skirt, take the shiny knit and repeat the same steps. Don't forget to insert the elastic! Opt for a length just at the level of the knees so that you can add the fishtail whose design will be more different than that of the baby. In short, the model should look like a pencil skirt.
To create the lower part of the skirt, take the fish scale effect fabric and cut a circle in the middle of 24 cm in diameter. Then sew the two parts of the skirt together, as shown in the example above. To complete the look, draw the outlines of two seashells on the iron-on glitter fabric and cut out. Apply them to the nude body with a simple blow of an iron. There you have it, your homemade mermaid costume is ready!
