I rarely use this account anymore. I just don't have time to model or do photography outside of my business. Most of my stuff is now on :iconrainamermaid: because it's my business. I can't believe I have had this account for 13 years it's a little nuts. I still keep tabs on it, lots of memories... but I don't like posting the mermaid stuff here and mixing my business with some of my other stuff haha. 

Anyway I have been teaching my boyfriend photography, and he took this one for me.
I'm still here - an update by OceanAtEndofTheLane
I think this is the first time in almost 2 years I have modeled for a photo without my mermaid tail. I started this account when I was a teenage in high school... now I am 30. How crazy is that?


I pretty much learned photography and modelling because I got into deviantART when I was a kid. It's crazy how a website can change your life. So for those wanting an update, my long time followers:

- The mermaid company is amazing, we've won awards, I've published 3 books, I travel, I have met famous people, and it's awesome

-I got two degree in university, and in addition to running my business and my team of 9- I also train Pilots how to fly planes. (random?)

-I still do the occasional music thing, but illness gives me hand tremors so I can't play guitar like I used to 

- I have been diagnosed with multiple chronic illnesses. It was a long hard journey to find the right help and I feel like it ate up me entire youth, but at this point I seem to be doing OK

- Still with the same guy, 9 years later

-I don't really do nude modelling anymore, just once in a blue moon for :iconericbb: I have lost a lot of my body confidence due to my illnesses, and honestly I'm so busy with my business

- I don't really have time for photography outside of what I do for my business. I do take a  lot of photos of my team though. 

- I opened a mermaid school... how crazy is that?

- I adopted 3 cats. Does that make me a crazy cat lady???

-I got to #1 on the front page of reddit with my mermaid stuff, that was crazy too



Not really sure what else to say, haha. Thanks for those of you who stuck around.

Mermaid Mimi is a Halifax Mermaid and has been a mermazing mermaid for years.

She recently had a little merling!

Mermaid is one of the sweetest mermaids on the planet. She is always helping others, kind, loving, and CONSTANTLY volunteers.  She’s made free mermaid tails for kids and makes frequent appearance for the local children’s hospital. Mimi is about to receive a “Life Saving Award” for saving a drowning child this past August. Though Mimi was 9 months pregnant at the time, she dove after a child who fell under and saved his life.

You may have seen Mermaid Mimi swimming in a colourful tail. Have you noticed she often wears skirts, sashes, and extra clothes with it? There’s a reason for that! Mermaid Mimi has an old mertailor tail that belonged to Raina. She has been making it work for YEARS despite the fact the entire thing is very seriously… TOO SMALL. The monofin is too small, the tail is too short! So Mimi hides the fact it’s too short, with fancy costume work!

Now, for years Mimi has been putting this tail to work and bringing joy to all those around her. The tail was made of Alex plus and neoprin so it has been falling apart. If you remember, I paid over $1000 for the tail that turned out to be a scam. But Mimi gets creative and has experimented with paints, fabrics, and sequins to keep this tail lasting.

Unfortunately the tail’s life has come to an end. It has practically disintegrated and we need to move to something new. In the past Halifax Mermaids won an award and was able to buy USED tails for our company, but we couldn’t get one in a size that would fit Mimi because she’s so tall!

Enter Merbella Studios…

Raina has another old tail, her very first silicone tail which was the first tail that Merbellas ever made. The tail was retired because the body is full of mold (having been one of the oldest silicone tails on the market, it’s had a lot of wear and tear) and the monofin inside broke. However, the monofin is the right size for Mimi and the fluke fits her well.

Raven the owner of Merbellas studios has offered to RECYCLE this mermaid tail to make it better than ever for Mimi! Even though the monofin can’t be fixed, Mimi is an incredibly confident and strong swimmer. Raven’s going to cut the body of the tail off, and remake it and re paint the whole thing to match Mimi’s original tail.

We’d love to be able to buy Mimi a new tail, but for now a recycled tail will do. With the difference right now between Canadian and American pricing, it’s just not feasible.

We have decided to see how much we can fundraise for this mermazing mermaid. We need $600USD plus a little extra for the gofundmefees. That’s not that much! If all the people Mermaid Mimi has helped chipped in a little, we’ll have the tail paid for it no time. ($821 CAD)

Mimi is the queen of recycling. She is always turning something old into something new, and teaching children how important it is. Please give this mermaid the chance to breathe new life into a tail that would otherwise never be used again.

All mermaids who donate to the Gofundme who don’t already have copies of my books: “Fishy Business: How to be a Mermaid” and “Fishy Business: My Life as a Mermaid” will be given free digital copies for donations of $20 or more.

We plan to do something special for the people who choose to donate. It’ll be a surprise.

Thank you so much and best fishes.

Critiques


I love the bokeh background. The focus is really tight and playful. The image flows really well. What a cute subject! Id suggest a few ...


What a cute couple of otters, they certainly are fun to work with and see. Quick though! I applaud you for getting the shot without any...

what a beautifully dark piece. I love the posture and posing of the model, the camera angle is spot on. I know she's on the floor, but ...


As far as comic ideas go I have to say this one is really original and something I would have never thought of. The concept alone makes...
