    Professional Mermaid Gigs (index & ideas from Raina)

    I have made many threads that outline work that can be done as a professional mermaid. Some are done in tutorials, some are photo spreads, some are a mix of both. I wanted to index them all here so people looking for ideas could easily find them:

    World Ocean's Day

    Birthday Parties

    Pirate Festivals


    Art Gallery Openings

    Mermaid Meet and Greets


    Multicultural Festivals

    Pride Parade


    Public speaking


    Booking Dr Sketchy

    Adult Birthday Party

    Make a Wish Foundation (Charity)

    Prepping for a gig FAQ

    Tips for becoming a Professional Mer (this is an e-magazine article you need to flip through to get to)

    I'll be adding lots more to these as I have time, I've been flooding the forum so I want to take a break haha. Feel free to ask me specific questions in the specific threads and I'll do my best to answer. But remember these are tips. I'm not going to share every single thing I do, I like to do things that are unique- and you should too!

    for some reason alllll the images are gone, since they were linked from FB it means FB moved em or something. Going back and putting them all in now!

    Thanks! That happened with a few image posts of mine on another site. I think FB knows people hot link them and has started to run scripts to change the urls or otherwise block hotlinking since it probably costs them tons of money in bandwidth when that many people hotlink that many pics all the time. It's just so much easier doing that then uploading them to photobucket :P

    how much it costs to hire a mermaid?

  12. #12
    Tina, no mermaid is the same, or does the same thing, some mermaids cost around pry $60 an hour when they start out or when are young, and then there are some mermaids that are $1,000 to book. It all varies.

    How would you go about making that contract? I'm also a photographer, and I understand the contract thing, but how would you word things?
    Tell me your secrets, sailor.. and I'll whisper mine in return.
