I can't sew (but I have been wanting to learn for quite a while) so my best friend made me a simple long tube skirt out of stretchy fabric that I bought. I also bought a yard each of sea green and light blue organza fabric and I cut them into a rounded rectangle shape. I glued those shapes to the bottom of my skirt to make look like a fishtail. I decided to wear leggings underneath so I can walk and move freely if I felt too restricted in the skirt. And also because it gets chilly at night!
For the bra, I just used a cheap sea-blue bra and glued netting over it to give it the illusion of fish scales. I then glued sequins and small pearls over it. I used netting on my face as well to create a stencil and applied eye shadow over it for the scales on my face. I then glued random sequins using eyelash glue. I accessorized with a pearl bracelet and earrings and I became a mermaid for the night!
I used this great tutorial for my makeup: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e22-ZeUuaZs&feature=my_liked_videos&list=LLtEzkeAMSSUq7QHohaDGlTg
with my sister who dressed up as Poison Ivy, I did her makeup as well.
