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

Try searching Merbellas, Flip Tails, Finfolk Productions, etc. All of them sell realistic looking silicone mermaid tails and some places you can rent tails from if you just need to rent one for a photoshoot.
