The beautiful and unique mermaid tails (and our merman's tail) were provided by Eric Ducharme, designer and owner of The Mertailor in Crystal River, Florida. The Mertailor provides both custom and pre-made mermaid and merman tails for clientele all over the world. Each tail is one-of-a-kind, made from the highest quality materials to create an appearance that will make anyone do a double take and question the existence of these mythical creatures.
It was a true honor to collaborate with Eric for an opportunity to shoot with some of his incredible Mertailor designs. No matter where my shoots took place with these tails, we were constantly surrounded by crowds wanting to watch the shoot and inquire about how my "mermaids" were possible. Huge thanks to Eric and The Mertailor for making this collection possible, and specials to makeup artist Missy Young and all of the models as well. You can ask any of the models (or the helping hands at each shoot), being a mermaid isn't an easy task.
Here's the first look at 6:12's "The Mermaid Collection."
Makeup artistry and hairstyling for the mermaid shoots in Wrightsville Beach were provided by MUA Missy Young.
