Garibaldi Mermaid by JessicaDru Garibaldi Mermaid by JessicaDru
Photographer: Brenda Stumpf [link]
Model: me

prints available by the photographer here: [link]

Brenda and the crew gathered off the coast of Catalina to get some ocean mermaid shots. The water was cloudy as the surf stirred up sand, so we only got a few usable images. But this is one of them. I am soooo glad we went though, because the giribaldi fish local to catalina just so happen to match my mermaid tail ^_^!!

Costume: I can post the designs etc... for the mermaid tail if anyone's interested. It took a lot of work to make these tails come into existence. But the basic form is neoprene with flowy fabric, covered with silicon scales.

Whimsical :X:X few days ago i came up with a concept involving a mermaid tail but since i dont have proper under water egar,must do it at the surface...i dont know where to buy such a tail though...found a site but was more like a halloween kids costume ..not realistic

And then a look at the fabric fluke and neoprene inner sleeve of the tail:
