Thread: Mermaids by Moonlight!

    Mermaids by Moonlight!

    Merlesque had a photoshoot a couple of weeks ago, and we've just had the pictures back. The theme was mermaids by moonlight. I was so excited to post them on Facebook but I'm having massive issues with the Facebook compression pixelating them horribly, so I've had to hand over to our graphics wiz mermaid Melusine! But I wanted to share them with someone, so I thought I'd post a few here

    Beautiful! Where did you swim?
    I'm scared to swim at night, unless it's a pool lol.

    Also, as a cloth tail maker/owner, I'm glad to see the Magictails look so good and realistic, better than the latex one imo.

    These are stunning! All the mermaids look wonderful, I like the diversity in the tail types.

    Thanks for all the kind words everyone!

    Thanks! The blue tail is a full silicone tail (it has a neoprene lining), and ditto the blue top is also silicone.

    Caltuna - we swam in a pool! I think setting up a night time shoot anywhere other than a pool would be really tricky, not least because you need really clear water when the light is more limited. But more importantly as we're in the UK and the shoot was in September, it would be absolutely freezing!

    I think the Magictails do well in underwater shoots actually, their colours really do come alive, especially the yellow/gold one.

    Ah, silly me, never realized you were from Europe too!
    (Somehow I seem to think all "bigger" Mermaid enterprises must be in the US...)

    Great to see you found other mers to work with!
    Cannot be easy in the UK, with the cold climate and the "no tails or fins" rules pools have.

    Haha, we are indeed! The three of us all got into mermaiding together. We definitely had some qualms about the climate at first! But we do non-swimming gigs and events as well, which is helpful especially in winter! Though swimming gigs are probably the most fun To be honest even in August when Melusine and I did a kid's party in an outdoor swimming pool, it was pretty darn cold (although the kids were chillier than the mermaids, we had to convince them to get out and warm up!)

    Kids don't seem to feel the cold, I envy them.

    Where I live, it's chilly all year, so I'm confined to indoor pools.
    Outdoor pools here are between 20°-25°C in summer, and the natives enjoy that, saying they'd sweat if it were any warmer.
    How does one manage to SWEAT in cold water?

    If it were possible to swim in water, however cold, I'd for sure live in Scotland (Loch Ness!! ),
    or Canada, or the Great Lakes region.

    Haha, these kids definitely felt it, they were shivering and still insisting that they weren't cold!

    I know, there's so many gorgeous places to swim that are just too darn cold!
