Mermaid Parade – Coney Island

The Coney Island Mermaid Parade is tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited!  The Mermaid Parade is a mermaid-oceanic themed parade that takes place at Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY every year.  It’s by far my favorite parade out of all the ones in the city, mainly in part because people go all out with their mermaid costumes as well as makeup and hair.  So to celebrate this very special event, I thought I would share some of my past favorite costumes from the parade.  Warning: Scandalous mermaid outfits ahead!
