EVENT: 2013 Mermaid Parade (Coney Island, NY)

Saturday, June 29, 2013

Last week was the annual Coney Island Mermaid Day Parade! 

This year I was determined to do a little more than throw on a bathing suit and make a fishy face, so I did a little youtube searching for mermaid makeup and found something even better! (See video below) My friend Amanda and I made our costumes out of some pretty inexpensive fabric we bought in the garment district (what an adventure that was!). Needless to say I'm so pleased with the way it all turned out and came together! 

Since I've never cosplayed it was a great experience not only making my costume but being recognized for my efforts and having people stop to ask if they could snap a few photos of/with me. 

With that said, peep some of my photos below! 

Don't you love how small the world is? At this year's mermaid parade I spotted the lady who won the award for "Most Outrageous Hat" at a millinery event earlier this year! :}

Best way to kick off Summer 2013!
