Gulf Coast Mermaid and BP's "Employee of the Year" Costume by Elizabeth Sorrell
This year Elizabeth Sorrell and her fiancé dressed up as a Gulf Coast Mermaid and BP's "Employee of the Year." Her mermaid costume was from eBay (and she's keeping it for future use), the fish skeletons have been cut out from used printer paper, and her poor bird was an old birthday present that turned into her dog's toy. Her fiancé's costume is an assemblage of pieces he already owned, and they recycled Flipper the day after Halloween. The devil accessories will be used in a Halloween costume swap next year.
