“But cruel is she! She left lonely for ever the kings of the sea”

Who: Sarah and Eileen

What: 30th Mermaid Parade www.coneyisland.com/mermaid.shtml

Where: Coney Island

When: June 23, 2012

Why: Because I waited 2 years. Because I wish to be a mermaid.

Highlight: Walking through our hood (half naked) to catch the J train. I still can’t believe we successfully got there without a single unfriendly hoot or holler.

MERMAID COSTUME

Top:

First I sewed gold trimming and fake seaweed onto a nude bra. Then I covered the visible fabric in adhesive and rolled it in glitter…and sequins :p

Tail: 

The idea for the pattern came from the crafty lady in the video below…
