How to Make a Mermaid Costume. Mermaids have fascinated humans for centuries, and today this is a popular Halloween costume. With this simple way to make a mermaid costume, adults and children alike can look like beautiful sirens of the sea. This costume is designed to be placed on the person wearing it immediately before use.
Use sea-tone eye shadow and sea-tone glitter on face, shoulders and arms. Coordinate the color of top with material used for bottom. Other possible accessories could include a golden comb (in legends mermaids used them to comb their hair), and a "pet" stuffed octopus or starfish. In lieu of the fantasy hair, the person's own hair can be highlighted with blue or green spray-on hair coloring popular at Halloween.
Take short steps to avoid spills and splits.
