Warm Day on the Sand by Lillyxandra Warm Day on the Sand by Lillyxandra
"Sirenia plays on the sand just at the edge of tide pool"

When I first met Traci ([link]), I saw how she encompassed that Disney Princess essence and persona, and I knew I had to bring that persona to vibrant, mermaid life. She reminds me of a classic Hollywood Starlet from the 40′s, punctuated by her bright red hair and lips to match. Not only does she have the looks, but she also has the voice of a siren! With that deadly combination, she could beckon any seafarer to a watery grave. I treated the photos to have a vintage pin-up style that I think works well for her look.

For her costume, I definitely pulled a lot of inspiration from Disney’s Ariel, but still wanted that retro feel. I wanted to create something other the the typical seashells for the top, so I used sequin applique to gives a glamorous feel over painted lace with crinkle silk. I aged her necklace and headdress, making them sea-worn as if she had found treasure from sunken ships.

The tail was purchased from the Mertailor ([link])! His tails are amazing, and you can actually swim in them due to a mono fin built in. I love that we could have some photos of her playing in the water:)

Indigo did an amazing job not only capturing Traci’s beauty, but I love how he caught the perfect moments of the waves crashing around her. A special thanks to Damian, our mer-toting macho man, and Jenny for keeping an eye on Traci to make sure everything was in its right place.
