When it comes to dressing for the occasion, Melissa Gorga never disappoints. Whether she’s getting all dolled up for her godson’s christening, wearing a sizzling red dress for date night, or putting her own glamorous spin on flannel for fall, The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom of three knows how to turn every event into an opportunity to create a brand new look. Of course, the boutique-owner’s fashion skills truly shine when Halloween rolls around, and her couple’s costume this year with husband Joe Gorga was definitely next-level.
Melissa and Joe set the bar pretty high when they stepped out in matching costumes last year, celebrating everyone’s favorite spooky holiday with Teresa Giudice. The couple kept it nautical with coordinating sailor looks, Melissa wearing a blue sequined romper with a bold red lip, and Joe showing off his Popeye-level muscles in a classic sailor’s costume. This year, they stayed with the ocean theme and went for an incredible mermaid look.
In an October 23 Instagram post, Melissa revealed her Halloween look with a series of photos. “Looking for an ocean,” she captioned the post. Melissa’s costume features a shimmery sequined mermaid-tail maxi skirt, an asymmetrical bikini top with a mermaid-scale inspired texture (and a face mask in the same print, of course), and some beautiful long beachy waves.
She then gave us a look at Joe’s coordinating costume, which was described as “mermaid catcher” in the caption. Carrying a fishing net, Joe was rocking a pair of bronze jeans and a cut-out denim shirt. He also had some fish scale makeup painted onto his arms and chest. These two looked amazing! (Or, as Margaret Josephs put it in a comment on Melissa’s post, “Mermaizing.”)
