Mermaid Costumes

Mermaid Costumes

Merfolk are mythological ocean dwellers who have the lower body of a fish and the upper body of a woman. Folklore tells stories of how they distract sailors with their beauty and hypnotic singing voices causing them to go off course or run aground. Stories mention mermaids dragging humans to their underwater kingdom only to drown them. It is debated whether they simply did not know that humans cannot breathe underwater of if they did it out of spite for trespassing on their ocean. Regardless of a sea nymph's existence or their motives, we can all agree that the mermaid costumes here accurately depict what we think of when we think of water sprites.

With mermaid costumes for both girls and women, they can be sweet or sexy, respectively. They can also be incredibly adorable as is the case with outfits for babies. Girl's mermaid costumes predominately feature variations of Ariel from Disney's The Little Mermaid. These feature the purple and teal gown that everyone knows and loves. You can accessorize these with a seaweed boa, an Ariel wand and tiara.

Women's mermaid costumes are much more alluring. They are form fitting to hug the curves of a woman's hips, tapered to the knee then flaring out into a fishtail at the feet. The outfit creates a stunning hourglass figure. The tops of these range from sequined halters to scallop shell bikini tops. They will show plenty of skin so they make terrific Halloween costumes for warmer climates or if you know you'll be indoors. You may also consider wearing a mermaid costume to a luau for a different twist on the summer party theme.
