This week, Yahoo Screen presents a video on the mermaids of Weeki Wachee State Park in Florida. The video talks about how the mermaid shows got started, and how the park has changed over the years. We meet several mermaids in the process, and witness the delight on the visitors' faces when the curtain opens and the mermaids appear.
"Once a mermaid, always a mermaid."
The video is a great introduction to the park for those of us that have not been able to attend in person.
This just in: During August, seven former mermaids returned to Weeki Wachee to perform before a packed audience. Read the full story over at TBO.
There IS something fishy going on here. A chance to show your mermaid side when on land in these mermaid leggings by Solilor.
"If your fella is totally obsessed with fishing, this may just be a great way to get his attention off rod and reel and back on you."
Laurie Kay Olson has the details at InventorSpot. The leggings are currently on sale for $15.99 at Amazon, but the one-size may not fit all.
We turn our attention now to the west coast of the US, where mosaic mermaids adorn a Los Angeles gas station. The Glass Art section of Craft Gossip has the details in an article by Cathi Milligan.
Our friends over at Mermaid Perfume are now offering Mermaid Shampoo and Conditioner. The price is $35 each, or you can get the shampoo and conditioner as a set for $60.
