Conrad's costume is especially appropriate this year: 2014 marks the 25th of Disney's The Little Mermaid, and her themed look is just the way to celebrate.

Directions:

1. To create the seashell bra, lay it on a flat surface and arrange the seashells to your liking—then hot glue them into place.

2. For the mermaid tail, wrap the green fabric around your dress form inside out and pin it in place. Then, remove the pins and sew together. Wrap the dark green sequined fabric around your dress form and secure it with straight pins just like your first layer of fabric and sew together. Add volume to your mermaid tail with the tulle, sewing it on in tufts.
