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 of Atlantis 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. Make a splash! Order mermaid costumes online today!
