This is my favorite kind of announcement: there’s a new theme in my shop! A mermaid theme! I’ve been working on this one for some time because I wanted to get it just right, with pink and blue, a magical mermaid, cute seashells, a bunch of what I like to call “sea sparkles,” and – the best part – customizable mermaids!

Mermaid party theme from Chickabug - you can choose your own mermaid to match your daughter!

A little backstory on the artwork: outrageously long, flowing hair aside, I really wanted to draw a mermaid that looks more like a little girl than a grown-up. Then, the birthday girl could really see herself as the mermaid, you know? (Instead of calling it “overthinking” I prefer to think of myself as “detail-oriented,” ha!) It was harder than I thought it would be to draw a tasteful seashell bikini top, but I think the finished product is very girlie and sweet! : )

To make the mermaid even more special, you can choose from a whole variety of hair colors and skin tones. Perhaps you might like the “Ariel” lookalike with red hair, or you can choose a mermaid that looks like your daughter. It’s totally up to you! And just look how cute the options are:
