Well, I've been thinking about what a gorgeous look it is and how fun it would be to recreate it on your own. Especially with Halloween coming up, it would be such a unique and striking look to use with a costume! You could wear a very understated mermaid outfit with this makeup, and it would still completely transform you - it's so dramatic.
So I decided to try my hand at my own mermaid makeup! I made my own fish scale stencil for the cheeks (I'll be posting a scan of it on here very soon!), and I used the Pirates League transformation as my inspiration.
It actually wasn't all that difficult, and I made a tutorial of it once I'd figured it out:
I know mermaids in the Pirates of the Caribbean Universe are supposed to be evil, but as soon as I hear "mermaid," I think of Ariel and all her nice friends. So I couldn't resist throwing in some Under the Sea style into the video!
What do you guys think? Would you become a mermaid for Halloween?
