Recycled 'water fairy mermaid' costume

Added Oct 18, 2008

by kittyriver

East Aurora, Non...






My 5 year old wanted to be a ‘water fairy mermaid’ for Halloween this year. I asked her to draw me a picture of what it should look like and went from there. This costume is one piece with a belt (came with one of the dressses). Zipper up the back, used almost every bit of both dresses to get it ‘flowy’ enough for her.

Material Notes

2 thrifted evening dresses, duct tape double of the child, glitter, glue, and rhinestones.
