When it comes to Halloween costumes, I like them modest.
Apart from having high moral standards, and that it's cold out on Halloween...
it's also a holiday where the CRAZIES come out!
We take dressing up very seriously at our house!
We source ideas and pieces year round and get a game plan in August!
There are usually several events that require dressing up
and it is fun to mix it up for each of them!
Super simple Mermaid inspired costume with a touch of steampunk!
This costume is great for a church party.
no mask (lots of churches have a no mask policy)
comfort and ease of movement. (big, bulky costumes are fitting for some occasions, but if you are having an active party with lots of games, movement is essential.)
They are great for daily wear too!
For make-up, I cut a scale stencil out of cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo.
It ended up getting shredded a little bit, but still usable.
I used some hairspray and gently sprayed it right on her face to set it!
and of course, hot pink wig...
She looked like the perfect teenage mermaid!
