This listing is for a one of a kind mermaid costume made from a lovely teal sequined fishtail 80's gown, which is a beauty in itself.
Costume ensemble includes gown, 2 necklaces wig and OOAK mermaid crown
Gold crown tiara with acrylic jewels and beads in blues and greens are fastened to a pretty gold scroll work base. Adorned with gold seashells and sea horses, it is details like this tiara that really sets your costume apart. I am also including a seashell necklace and a gold beaded one, treasures from the sea floor of course. I am throwing in the wig which although matted, I think adds to the character of the costume, simply because it is rather a mess. So up to you if you use it or not. It has some clear craft jewels in it to add to the fun.

Dress zips up the back and is rushed down the sides with squiggles of sequins down the front. Large bow with small jewel adorns the back and the hemline falls in layers of light ruffles. It is strapless and any straps you see are the bra underneath.

Labeled Zum Zum 11/12 but of course MUCH SMALLER by todays standards and more like a 6/8. Styled to be shorter in front than back.
Fits model at Bust 36", Waist 30" and hips 38".

I found a few holes. Most are very small and looks as if it was just caught on something. One is larger about 1" in an L pattern. Because of the ruffled design of the dress these are for the most part hidden in the flouncy folds which Is why I did not detect immediately. The larger is on the bottom layer and to some extent may be a bit more noticed especially if you know it is there.Also some light small stains, most looking more like little wet spots, nothing that stands out I just like to be accurate
I do not think this hinders it's use as a costume which is what I am selling it as (more so than vintage value), but as I have found these issues, I am disclosing them and have taken an additional $5.00 off the already clearanced price.

Lying flat across pit to pit dress measures 17", at narrowest part just under bust line it is 14", waist area 15", and hips 18". From arm pit to front of hemline about 38" and armpit to back hemline 50"
My daughter wore this and she is about a size 6 and it was a little big on her.

Frequently asked questions about HeartsomeHalos

I often get questions on what size it is, or a request for a size. Please understand that my ensembles are one of a kind, not made new from scratch but created with vintage finds and previously owned goods. For various reasons I often do not give a "Size" on my clothing items. Please read the description. Flat measurements and all estimated sizing are given there. Compare the flat measurement to your own garment. Contact me if you still have questions
I can sometimes mix and match my apparel pieces to come up with an ensemble for my customers, but my costume ensembles and accessories are "one of a kinds" and not made from scratch therefore I CAN NOT take custom orders for sizes on a particular ensemble.
Here again I state, my accessories, clothing items and costumes are recreated from vintage and pre-owned apparel and materials. Costume ensembles then are limited to my vintage or pre-owned inventory. Do feel free to contact me for help with a costume if you need one, just keep this in mind. :)
The exception is my head wreaths which I can usually produce a custom head wreath within 24-48 hours, depending on availability of materials. Thanks for reading
I usually ship out in 1-2 business days. The time it reaches you once it leaves my hands is in the hands of the shipping company, but estimates are as follow. If you need to upgrade for faster service, please request before purchasing so listing can be adjusted. I usually ship USPS, light packages 1st Class 2-5 days, med. weight Priority 2-3 days and very large and or heavy packages Parcel Select 5-9 days.
I have international shipping estimates in many of my listings. I do however reserve the right to adjust these if in error. Buyer can cancel order under these circumstances if the shipping is more than estimate. If you would like an accurate cost, please contact me for a personal quote before purchasing
No Returns-I describe my items in detail. Please read the description thoroughly . I encourage you to ask questions in regard to anything you may want to purchase that may not be clear to you.
