Mermaid Man: DIY Cosplay

Mermaid Man, once a super famous hero in Bikini Bottom, is a geriatric retiree who spends his golden years lounging around the retirement home reminiscing about his glory days with sidekick Barnacle Boy. In his prime, Mermaid Man had an exquisite physique and was feared for his physical prowess. As an elderly man he has gone from fit to flabby, but that hasn’t stopped him from wearing his old superhero costume!

Mermaid Man wears a distinctive orange and green costume which bares a striking similarity to Aquaman’s outfit. His outfit consists of black and green tights, green gloves and an orange long-sleeved shirt with a yellow belt held together with a big “M” shaped buckle. A purple seashell bra tops off the look. His nose is covered by a purple starfish which gives him the ability to breathe underwater. Due to his advanced age and arthritic feet, he also wears a pair of pink fluffy slippers. To find out how to put together your own DIY Mermaid Man costume, please see below.

About Mermaid Man

Mermaid Man is a famous superhero in the Spongebob Squarepants universe who resides in a retirement home in Bikini Bottom alongside his trusty sidekick Barnacle Boy. Long past his prime, Mermaid Man still has his share of superfans, including titular character Spongebob.

He has a variety of superpowers provided by his suit, including the ability to summon and control sea creatures, super strength and high-speed swimming. He can also breathe underwater thanks to a purple starfish given to him by a mermaid. However, his powers aren’t as potent as they once were – and he’s a lot crankier and forgetful.

When he’s not putzing about the retirement home, Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy spend some time at the Mermalair where they keep super villains (such as arch nemesis Man Ray) locked up in frozen tartar sauce.
