From time to time, I like to make an original design costume. I had wanted to do a mermaid for a long time, and when I had the chance to buy a latex tail, I jumped on it. While the tail is purchased, the bra, shoulder piece, necklace, and hip piece are all made by me. I used real shells and pearls to create the look, aside from the large shells on the bra which are resin cast. Since I couldn’t find two shells that were the same size, I got one large shell and used it to make a mold, the cast the shells for the bra. I also very much enjoyed dyeing my hair with a pink and orange gradient to go along with the mermaid aesthetic!
The ear fins and gills are prosthetics from Aradani Studios.
