A woman has floored Twitter with her take on a ‘Little Mermaid’ Halloween costume. 

For a costume that cost £1.25 to make, Lara Campbell put together an outfit consisting of a shell-like bra and fishtail made out of Lidl bags and a red haired wig - calling herself the ‘Lidl Mermaid’. 

“A girl in my work was talking about puns,” Campbell told Metro, “and mentioned the Lidl mermaid and I thought it would be a good idea to try and dress up as it.”

Even Geordie Shore star Scotty T felt compelled to share the look with his 1.82 million followers. 

It seems 2017 is the gift that keeps giving with original Halloween costumes.
