Baby Mermaid Costume - Crochet Photo Props! Buy it or make it!
Have the cutest photo session with a baby mermaid costume!
My friend is having a baby soon, just a few days left and I would lie if I said I wasn't excited about it. Judging by her and her partners personality I just know this baby will be a ray of sunshine.
A few days ago I was browsing and brainstorming about what to get her as a gift (I don't know the gender) and by accident I came across the most adorable thing ever - baby mermaid costume! This was to precious not to share as I think this makes the most perfect baby Halloween costume or just a great photo prop.
It would be awesome if her baby would be a girl (I do suspect a boy though) and if she would be a mermaid for Halloween.
There are many different baby mermaid costumes available for you to buy, I could probably make a list of 100 different products but I choose to include just a few of the ones I personally like the most.
Blue Baby Mermaid Outfit - The natural look
I had to include this one, not only because of the adorable outfit but also because of the clever ruffled fabric that looks just like sand on the beach! I would add a shell or two or a starfish and I think the photo would be amazing!
You can buy this costume
I love the teal color, it's the most common tail color in the mermaid world (probably, if there would be such a world) and this is why I think this one would work great for baby girl mermaids as well as baby boy mermen (no need to use the bra for him).
Pretty in Pink - Pink Crochet Baby Mermaid Tail - For the girly girl
Another great photo setting! I love the teal faux fur placed on the baby bed.
This one has scales! - I love this one!
If you are thinking about making this one yourself, I didn't find any patterns which would show you how to make the tail but I can tell you how the technique is called - it's the crocodile crochet stitch.
While you can buy this one if you are attempting to make your own, I can't help you with the tail part but you can find the crocodile crochet stitch instruction at the free patterns section a bit further down this page.
As for this adorable one, well there's not much to say about it but that it's gorgeous!
Even more of them on eBay!
I could spend hours just browsing on ebay - it's a great resource to get new & old things as well as unique hand crafted things so it's no wonder there are a lot of these cute dresses available there. Be sure to check them out.
