Here are some pictures so you can get some ideas for your homemade mermaid costume and you will find some mermaid accessories on this page too.
These are the things you will need to make the perfect homemade mermaid costume:
• Bra or Bikini Top
• About 6-8 foot of Shimmery Material preferably aqua or blue
• Flesh Colored Long Sleeved Shirt
• Thread that Matches Material
• Glue Sticks
• Hot Glue Gun
• Seashells (painted if desired)
• Accessories – Sea Themed
• Aqua Eye Shadow
Here are some helpful costume accessories for your mermaid costume.
Step 1: Using your hot glue gun, glue the flowers or seashells of your choice firmly onto the selected top. Then add some of your embellishments to the flesh colored top as well. You can even use some green "seaweed" to decorate it. The bra will go over the top.
Step 2: With your choice of shimmery material, start at the child's knees and continue to wrap the material tightly around her until until it reaches her waist. When you are to the waist, tuck the material in. You may use a safety pin if desired to hold in place.
Step 3: Using your needle and thread, you are going to now sew the tail. First, get another piece of your shimmery material, and gather together at the top and sew with a quick basting stitch. Then, you are going to sew this onto the bottom of the costume, right above the child's knees.
Step 4: Next, you are going to decorate. Use as many accessories as preferred. You may wish to use a lei, necklace or earrings with seashells on them, or even decorate a headband with seashells to put in your hair. You may also attach some of the shimmery material onto the headband as well for an added touch.
Step 5: Apply your eye shadow and glitter as desired! You can either go barefoot, or wear sandals you have decorated as well. The options are endless so use your imagination.
