Friday Finds, Mermaid Costume Style: Tails for Adults and Kids

As a child, I had a reoccurring dream where I dived off the Chesapeake Bay Bridge and transformed into a mermaid with an iridescent rainbow fin. My sleeping dreams aren't as vivid anymore after I wake, but I do daydream about sea creatures and underwater kingdoms. I've drawn my visions into reality, but have yet to dress up as a mermaid.

As you may have noticed from my past Jem, Catwoman, Zombie and Pirate Friday Finds, I hope to net a new Halloween costume soon. I have been luring ideas out of the Etsy ocean, and this week I hooked handmade mermaid tails for sale. Several styles splashed out of the waves for females of all ages, from sexy sirens to adorable toddlers.
