No, you're not seeing things! These are 2 friends of DH's nephew. The one just broke up with his girlfriend, and the other's girlfriend was away with her family. They dressed up as girls for the fun of it. The mermaid's girly parts - well, let's just leave it up to S-Ed for this one. They were filled with water, and when they eventually popped, Miss Mermaid complained that the costume made him itch!
