Last week on our Fashion Halloween segment we chatted Betty Draper (see those photos here) and while I loved being Betty, I couldn’t resist the chance to be a mermaid. I have a fascination with mermaids (I’m an Ocean baby) and often go around saying I’m one (and you can’t prove I’m not, also I’ve posted about getting mermaid photos done here). So, this seemed like a natural progression. There are tons of mermaid costumes online, for both Halloween and swimming (and I’m trying to convince myself that I don’t need a mermaid fin-links below for shopping) but for this look I chose to do more “make-at home”. This skirt is from H&M and I have had it for years, for this look I bought green and purple tulle and pinned it to the hem. The shoes are Sophia Webster from last fall, the top is from Hot Topic (found here). For the make-up I simply put glitter all over my face, using liquid gold eyeliner for lipstick, however there are many mermaid make-up tutorials I love, including this one that I love! I hope you enjoy mermaid-ing as much as I do!
