Black Light Sea Creature

The gills, the glow paint, and the overall fusion of texture-heavy materials make this glowing guise simply unforgettable. Cassidy B. no doubt steals the party scene wherever she chooses to flaunt her fish persona!

Squid Friends

When you think of a sea creature, does a squid swim to the forefront of your mind? This photo submitted by Jess C. shows just how fun sporting tentacles can be! And what’s better than one squid? Two squids!

Jumpin’ Jellyfish!

The cool factor of this jellyfish costume created by Christy W. can’t be denied! Made from an umbrella-like base, this whimsical wonder of a Halloween get-up illuminates the night with strings of twinkling lights and colorful ribbons.

Day of the Dead Mermaid

What better tail to celebrate the rich heritage of Mexican culture than our Sea Spirits design? Faith L. knew just how to incorporate the colorful elements of her tail into her custom bikini top and headpiece!

Steampunk Mermaid

Steampunk style surfaces in a serious way during the Halloween season, and this photo of Kai D. is no exception! Her ensemble balances all the right elements of the steampunk aesthetic, using the Iron Mermaiden tail as the anchor of her masterpiece.

Beware the gaze of the zombie mermaid! This photo from P.T. Eaton shows how one Fin Fan channeled her inner zombie with our Skeletail as inspiration!

Breathtaking Body Art

Body art as a creative medium of expression often comes full circle on Halloween night, as illustrated in this photo submitted by Ashley J. She’s “shore” to stand out from a sea of merfolk covered in these hypnotizing colors of violet, turquoise, and jade.

Mermaid On the Go

What is the fastest way to trick-or-treat in a tail? Fashion an ocean chariot on wheels! Not only does this ride provide the perfect backdrop for Arwyn W.’s mermaid costume, it even comes furnished with a seashell backrest for extra flair!

Pensive Siren Sally

We’re wondering what’s on this mermaid’s mind. Maybe Cori H. is thinking about her next mermaid swim—or perhaps she’s dreaming of new places to flip her fin. Whatever her thoughts may be, we think this tribute to Sally from “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is totally on point.

Scarlett B. is dressed to the nines and ready to kick start her Halloween fun. We’re loving her full mermaid ensemble, complete with beautifully styled hair adorned with seashells and seaweed!

And the winner of our Creatures of the Sea Costume Contest is…

Steampunk Mermaid!

Kai D. has won our new Lunar Tide GLO tail. We hope she enjoys wearing her new mermaid tail accentuated with hand-painted stars that glow in the dark!
