About Mermaid Man
Mermaid Man i.e. Ernie is a kind-of retired superhero with his sidekick Barnacle Boy. He stars in his own show – The Adventures of Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy. However, their appearance in Spongebob Squarepants is not to be forgotten.
Mermaid Man is like a caricature of Aquaman and Batman put together. He possesses the superpower to control the creatures of the ocean. His sidekick Barnacle Boy sticks to his side throughout his missions. It is decreed that both of them were human at some point in their life but now they live as retired heroes in the pacific ocean with the Spongebob crowd. Spongebob and Patrick have convinced them to continue their superhero work even after they retired. Just like Batman, they have their own Mermaclair and invisible Boatmobile that they use.
Young Mermaid Man i.e. when he was Ernie, had yellow/blond hair. But now as he has grown quite old, he has a tuft of white hair. He wears an orange shirt, green trousers with two seashells on his chest with pink slippers. His nose is topped with a purple starfish and he also wears a purple belt with a metallic ‘M’ for ‘Mermaid Man’. His character presentation is quite similar to that of Aquaman.
The most peculiarities of Mermaid Man’s outfit are the seashells on his nipples, a purple starfish on his nose, and the weird pink fuzzy slippers he wears underwater.
This Mermaid Man costume comes complete with the orange shirt, sea green pants and an attached seashell bikini just like that of the costume you’re trying to replicate. It also has an attached belt with the ‘M’ and green gloves.
These are swimming trunks to be worn over a pair of green pants. They are stretchable and comfortable even when you wear them over another pair of pants. So these are quite ideal for you to recreate your Mermaid Man look.
You might want to get these green gloves for becoming Mermaid Man. They’re latex and rubber free, hence if you are allergic to latex or rubber, this pair is your option to a safe cosplay. They are the kind of green which would suit your Mermaid Man costume.
