Mermaid costumes have been popular since the Little Mermaid (even before then), and are really pretty and unique to wear, as there's not a lot of costumes that take on their interesting characteristics.
And because of the context of the costume, all sorts of vivid and loud colors can be added without it clashing with the idea of what a mermaid costume should look like, which gives it a lot of flexibility and leeway when wearing it to a party or on Halloween in general.
Along with a look of a couple of mermaid costumes for children below, I've also included several for adults women, which really are cute, sexy and colorful, and will draw the gazes of everyone around on you.
Mermaid costumes work good for mother/daughter combinations who want to look alike on Halloween, and are a lot of fun in that regard, and create a lot of memories.
But whether an adult mermaid costume or one for children, they are beautiful to wear, and give a distinct look that most costumes aren't able to. In other words, they're a great Halloween costumes to wear.

Women's Ariel and Mermaid Costumes
These adult women's mermaid or Ariel costumes are beautiful, and stunning to look at. While they all include the blue, which points to the sea, they also are different in subtle, and with the bottom photo, not-so-subtle ways.
The flared bottoms on all of these - representing the mermaid tail - look fantastic, and overall are very cute and classy. Mermaid themes are great Halloween costumes, as you can see.
This first one has a beautiful lavender top that goes beautifully with the blue of the bottom.
Did you notice the cut flair at the waist that flows down to the wonderful flair at the bottom of the costume to give the illusion of a tail?
