    Lady Gaga's dark mermaid costume

    Loved the mermaid costume in her music video You and I, especially the prosthetic gill slits!

    Yes I love this. Mertailor often says he made a tail for Lady Gaga and people assume it was this tail, it wasn't. In fact he's tagged the video in a bunch of stuff so even when you try to google it, mertailor comes up. He re purposed an old tail (raven actually swam in this tail back in the day) for a performance she gave, and she cut it open down the back, added studs to it, but eventually sent it back and went with someone else. (since he reads the forum, queue the facebook posts of oh look at the tail I made for lady gaga!) Anyway, article about that here: http://gagafashionland.com/2011/07/l....TtxTINn6.dpbs

    The people who made the tail for the video post here: http://www.therpf.com/f45/lady-gaga-...d-tail-132452/ back in 2011.
    Hi all, not sure where to put this but i think here is the best place.

    Just wanted to share a project I recently worked on whilst working at Millennium FX.

    We made a full Silicone Mermaid tail for Lady Gaga's video "you and I".

    Myself and Sharna Rothwell sculpted the tail body and I did the tail spines and an unseen dorsal fin. I also sculpted all the gill and blender prosthetics and painted the cyborg peices she wore. The incredibly talented Rob Mayor (MD of Millennium FX) flew out to Nebraska to apply the pieces for the shoot.
    We were on an incredibley short deadline (8 days) and everyone was really chuffed with the end result!

    I have loaded some pics on my website.

    all best
    The link they have there doesn't seem to work anymore but it was posted all over mer yuku and I think a few earlier post on mernetwork as well.

    Originally she was going to have a huge underwater mermaid scene in a different video: http://ladygaga.wikia.com/wiki/Y%C3%BCyi_the_Mermaid

    I love her yuyi character and I also love how on the new album she's all sea shell bikini haha.



    Thom Shouse was hired to do a replica which was used for the Gagaween video:





    She's used other mermaid esq outfits too

    Weird? I did a search on this tail an a few times Thom Shouse's name came up as well about this tail. I wonder why his name came up?

    That tail is awesome, seriously realistic and creepy-looking.
