Playful Siren by TheRealLittleMermaid Playful Siren by TheRealLittleMermaid
This past October I got the chance to model for the amazing and talented designer (and Queen of the Fairies!) JoEllen Elam, also known as Lillyxandra. It was such an honor, and was one of the most amazing days of my life thus far! Lord knows I've been dreaming about becoming a mermaid ever since I first saw Ariel sing Part of Your World when I was a little tiny girl. Thank you Jo, Indigo and the whole crew for an amazing experience and the fantastic photos that I will undoubtedly treasure for the rest of my life!

This is a lovely photos! It's the perfect location as well to do these photos....its a shame the tail doesnt fit you exactly right, you can see where it bunches. Sadly, that's how the mertailor works! :(

But what's really good, is that you look so beautiful in the photo so no one will pay too much attention to the tail! :D

Well, it fit pretty well when it was dry, but once it got wet it became much heavier and that's when the bunching happened a little, but in the future I'll make sure mr. tail is uber tight! <3 Thanks for the compliments! XD

you're most welcome!!! I didnt know that it would shrink a little when it got wet! :S hahahaa learn something new everyday!!! The bunching really doesnt matter because the beauty of the photograph takes your eye away from small costume malfunctions! Sorry about all these comments, I assure you Im not some crazy stalker Im just a fan :)

Oh no it doesn't shrink when wet-it stretches out and gets looser due to the weight of the water, thus the loose bunching of the fabric in the pics where I'm in the water. The fabric the mertailor uses sucks up the water and it becomes extremely heavy. By the end of the shoot I could barely lift my legs haha! But I don't notice the bunching much in the pics because there is so much to draw the eye..hopefully most pple don't notice! >< haha I don't think you're a crazy stalker! lol! Thank you for all your comments!
