Fantastic Beasts and How to Become Them: Unicorns and Mermaids

The fascination with mythical beasts and romantic creatures has never been stronger. This Halloween you’re certain to find lots of people dressed up as fantastic beasts such as unicorns or mermaids, two of the most beautiful mythical creatures now popular in stories, movies and fairy tales.

The Allure of Beautiful Creatures

Gorgeous creatures from mythology and fairy tales have an enduring appeal for people because they represent something beautiful and unattainable that adds a bit of mystery to otherwise mundane lives. This is why movies such as “The Little Mermaid” are so popular with adults as well as children. Who wouldn’t want to be a mermaid for a day? At Halloween Empire Online, we have everything you need to become a fantastic beast for the day, including makeup, wigs and costumes that will dazzle.

The Appeal of Unicorns and Mermaids

People have admired unicorn legends for thousands of years. In the Middle Ages, they represented virtue and innocence. Today, they are seen as symbols of everything good and happy, so it’s no wonder our unicorn costumes are so popular. Unicorns combine the popularity of horses, which so many little girls fall in love with at a young age, and the mystery of a horned creature that is elusive and magical.

Mermaid stories have also been admired for centuries and across multiple cultures. While they were sometimes seen as magical creatures who lured sailors, many people saw them as creatures who protected sea travelers and guarded the oceans and the many creatures who lived in them. Today, mermaids are more admired than ever for their beauty and mystery. The fact that they are half human and half glistening, lovely fish makes them even more interesting.

Unicorn Costume Essentials

Start with a basic white outfit and build from there with our adult unicorn kit that includes a silky tail, spiral horn and ears. Or if you want a ready-made outfit, check out one of our unicorn costumes, which come in a variety of sizes. Our girl’s unicorn kit includes a beautiful, pastel skirt and easy to wear headband featuring a unicorn horn, ears and flower accents. To complete your unicorn fabulousness, be sure to include a luxurious unicorn wig in pastel shades (everyone knows unicorns have pastel manes and tails!) and a touch of unicorn makeup for a delicate, fairy tale look everyone is sure to fall in love with.

Be a Mermaid for a Day

Mermaid costumes are a bit more involved because of the presence of scales and a fish tail, but Halloween Empire Online has everything you need to become one of these shimmering sea creatures. To capture the watery appeal of a mermaid, Halloween Empire Online offers several versions of  the legendary mermaid. Each mermaid costume features shimmering materials, aquatic colors like blues, greens and soft purples and charming details such as pearls entwined in our mermaid wigs and shimmering scales to stencil on with our mermaid cosmetics kit.

This Halloween be one of the fantastic beasts of legend by choosing a unicorn or mermaid costume and accessorizing it with lavish details you’ll only find at Halloween Empire Online.
