Austin Junk Hauling: Halloween Costume Made From Junk Calls Attention to Recycling

This “Death of a Mermaid” costume recently won an Etsy costume contest for best costume and has been garnering attention all over the web!

The artist wanted to create the costume to call attention to the problem of beach pollution and we have to admit, it’s been getting quite a bit of attention!

She created the costume from some old junk she had lying around including an old prom dress, some dye and paint, household items and yarn.

All of the household items in the piece are items that are frequently found polluting our oceans and beaches such as plastic drink rings, straws, Styrofoam, etc.

The mermaid’s sign drives home the message of the costume – “Warning: No Swimming Sewage in Water.”
