I'm a reverse mermaid!

Fish on top, lady on the bottom... not as sexy, but far more practical. I made the whole thing out of a little boys hoodie from Target, felt, and two ping pong balls!
Happy Halloween!!

Wow! Genius. :D I just hope you don't freeze. ;)
Btw, I once saw this illustration by Molly Crabapple http://tiny.cc/c6cpg - I think you're looking much better than that example of a reverse mermaid!
Happy Halloween!

This is adorable and super clever. I would be way too self-conscious and afraid of frost-bite to wear it.

Do you know the Shel Silverstein song "The Mermaid"? It has the lyrics:

"For her hair is green as seaweed and her skin is blue and pale,
And I tell you now before you start you can love that girl with all your heart,
But you're just gonna love the upper part you're not gonna like the tail."

and

"For her upper part was an ugly old fish but the bottom part was girl
Yes the bottom part was girl
Yes her knees are pink and rosy and her toes are small and frail
Her body it's a work of art and I love that girl with all my heart
And I don't give a damn about the upper part and that's how I end my tale"

The band Great Big Sea did a famous cover of it.
