For the Love of Mermaids & Cupcake Costumes!

I will be catching up with good long time friends later at a wedding rehearsal dinner. I feel blessed. These are friends I have had for literally 35 years! We used to play at each other's house as far back as second grade.
I decided to bake mermaid shaped cookies dipped in lavender sugar (colors of the bridal party) for the girls to snack on throughout the day tomorrow as they get ready for the big event. They are almost too cute to eat!
My youngest daughter Sophia has decided to dress as Ariel, the Mermaid, for Halloween this year! Her dress is a shimmery green with a puffed up skirt and the most adorable sparkly gold and purple clip-on earrings. Maybe she'll want me to put a touch of green in her beautiful blond curly hair. I love all the rituals autumn provides.
My husband and I have been invited to a Hip Halloween Party for a neighbor's fortieth and I am thinking about putting a pink cupcake costume together. I am not much of a seamstress so I would give it my best effort-I would start with cotton for the frosting, a pink wig and pink taffeta type material for the bottom of the cupcake. Although this may prove challenging, I would want to be a 'cool' looking cupcake and I suppose this might be a hard affect to achieve-with a pink wig and all...
