It’s finally spooky season, and Halloween is just around the corner! If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I love dressing up and wearing matching outfits with my daughter. We both get a kick out of it (especially me because I love hearing she’s my mini-me), and admittedly, it’s a whole lot of fun! Halloween is the perfect time to dress up as your favorite superhero, movie or tv show character, and thanks to Ebay, the possibilities are endless.
This Halloween, I am partnering with Ebay for me and my daughter’s DIY halloween costumes! Ebay is the world’s favorite destination for discovering great value and unique selection with price points that are inclusive to all! Alaska, my five year old, has been so obsessed with The Little Mermaid lately. One week, I believe we watched it about 3 times, excitement unwavering each time around. We recently went to Disneyland for her birthday, where she met Ariel in real life, and I’ve never seen her so starstruck. Luckily, I am obsessed with Disney, and Ariel was one of my favorite princesses growing up- and I’ve always had a soft spot for Flounder and Sebastian, so I am here for it and ready to make this costume idea come to life!
Ebay has a wide variety of Halloween essentials to create the perfect Halloween costume. Especially when building a more creative or innovative costume, Ebay makes it efficient to get everything you need for trick or treating without leaving your couch. Their filters include a variety of listings, item condition, and delivery options. On the left, narrow your search down to the theme- Animals & Nature, Superhero, TV/Books, and more.
You can even search for “Complete Outfit” under style, and select filters for colors, brands, and pricing- making it a hassle-free experience! I knew I wanted a mermaid outfit, so I bought the mermaid tail individually, and searched for the purple seashell bra, and my daughter’s outfit, which was an adorable kid’s purple mermaid dress.
Don’t forget to accessorize! Simply searching “mermaid accessories” brings up hundreds of related sparkly hair bows,seashell clips, necklaces, pins, and more. No mermaid costume is complete without the Ariel-esque makeup. I found the perfect mermaid eyeshadow palette with a stunning array of sparkly, colorful shades and a mermaid makeup brush set to pair perfectly with it!
Here’s Alaska in all her mermaid glory:
Here’s my mermaid outfit! I accessorized with a few pins, created a colorful eyeshadow look, and curled my hair with a 1 inch wand to perfect the outfit.
Make sure to do your Halloween costume shopping on Ebay, where you will find all your ideas come to life! Let me know in the comments what you plan to dress up as this year.
