Mermaid Ashore by JessicaDru Mermaid Ashore by JessicaDru
Photographer: Brenda Stumpf (see the other mermaid pictures: [link])

Models: Me and Seth

We were going for a deadly siren, so drowning sailors and all that ^_^

Catalina was beautiful, but the ocean was so sandy/cloudy that our shoot which was originally meant to be underwater, had to be moved onto the rocks.
I wish there were a photography - fantasy category. this isn't cosplay, but i'm not sure where to put it.

Another shot from the same day:

What materials did you use for your tail? (Sorry if this has already been addressed)

JessicaDru Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
the tail is neoprene and chiffon fabric, with silicone mermaid scales overtop.

I was wondering. Would you mind if I repainted this? I love the tension and sensuality in this piece.

you can use it for inspiration, and reference... but it's not up to me (the model) but rather up to Brenda (the photographer)

but then again, 'i'm not your real dad', just be sure to give credit ^_^

You certainly do look like a villainess in that make-up. :D Very nicely done!
I wish there was a category for photography-fantasy. I would be browsing it every day!

I wish, with all my heart, there was a photography-fantasy category. because finding a place for all this awesomeness is hard. especially when we don't do any photoshop trickery

These are incredible! Really like the other ones that are on the website as well.

I'm actually in San Diego for a while and definitely plan on visiting Catalina! Maybe I'll find some mermaids :)

We've moved to Japan so I didn't make it up there. :( I will next time I'm in San Diego though!
And I'm quite jealous and can't make up my mind weather I'd want to be the one getting these amazing shots or in a mermaid costume! :)

The froth etc in the ocean really adds to this. Makes you seem more like a force of the elements.

This was a very very short above water shoot, and the tail reacted with the incoming tide really well. in the end i'm glad we did something above water... :)

definitely me too. knowing the best (and least toxic) materials was beyond helpful. and funny enough, the best way to put on the tails once we made them. ^_~
