Being a mermaid is overrated. Why not go as a shark-bite victim this year? Find an old one piece swimsuit and cut out a section to replicate a shark bite. Cut out a strip of white cloth and sew it around to look like teeth. Get creative and add fake blood on the sides and if you’re an amazing make-up artist, go for the full effect of goring it out with 3-D internal organs effects.
