Mermaid Parade 2017!

Hello Hello, Lil Buns!

Last Saturday, I went to my very first Mermaid Parade in Coney Island!

Every year, Coney Island has this amazing parade to celebrate the beginning of summer. Everyone dresses up as everything related to the ocean including mermaids (of course), seahorses, fish, crustaceans and tons of other creatures! Some are funny and some are just beautiful.

I didn't really have any costume or try to make one because of the weather. It did rain on and off almost all day. So I just did a casual mermaid-themed Gyaru coord.

The Little Gyaru Mermaid

Top, Pants and sneakers: Offbrand
Accessories: Offbrand, Roxie Sweetheart, Rainbow Star Candy and 6% Doki Doki

The parade started at 1 so I had to leave my house around 10am! I was basically taking the train from one end to the other which is about 2 hours traveling Dx

When I got to my stop, it was filled with tons of people! Many were in costume so there were lots of people taking photos. Luckily, I found my friends very quickly. We made our way over to where the parade was going and found a pretty good spot. My friends mostly took photos because I didn't want to try to juggle the umbrella too XD

All of the following photos of the parade are courtesy of my dear friend Chelfie!

Those sequins!♥

Yep, they were there too xD


I think he was supposed to be kelp...

She totally rocked that look.

One of my favorite looks!

After a couple of hours, we decided we had our fill and were ready for some food! We found this nice little place called ChowTime! They serve Chinese, Vietnamese food and bubble tea!

I got the Chicken Vietnamese Sandwich with a Honeydew bubble tea. So good!

We hung around a little bit after before deciding to head home. I still had a 2 hour train ride XD

It was a lot of fun. I got to hang out with friends that I haven't seen in a long time, see amazing costumes and it was good just to be out of the house! I know I hope to go again next year!

That's all for now! See you next time!
