Top 9 DIY Fun Halloween Costumes

I’m in love with all of these fun Halloween costumes!  Many are beach or tropical inspired and most would be very easy to pull off at the last minute.  I’m not always the best at planning out my Halloween costumes in advance.  (But I wish I was!) So sadly, I end up being one of those people running to the Halloween shop the night of and digging through the left over costumes.  This year I’m going to try something a little different and DIY.  Just not sure which one yet…

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!
