One-of-a-kind Fantasy Mermaids Reloaded

Just a quick addendum to the previous Who Said Mermaids Don't Exist?;

When looking for more Mermaids swimming around in the world wide wocean, I came across the Flickr profile of Nenúfar Blanco, where she features many interesting photos of ethereal and fantastic Merpeople.

It took me quite a few pictures before I realised that the featured Mermaids and Mermen are one-of-a-kind fantasy dolls, which are made by Nenúfar herself.

I was quite impressed by the high level of detail and the unique look she creates. Despite I am not a particular fan of small figures or puppets, I really like them.

In case you would like to buy one, you can go to her website, where you can get your unique model for (at the time I write this) $350.-, which is not too bad considering those dolls are unique and handmade.

Most people might think: "What a strange hobby!" As far as I'm concerned this just adds to my amazement. In case you want to read more, you can also visit her blog.

Haha ;-)! As you know: "Doch zuerst ... schafft man Stimmung fuer l'Amour!"

We actually watches Splash a few weeks ago, which made me looking for mermaid stories on the web.

Cheers

Ah! That's the gist of the matter (hopefully I said that in the right way ;)

My memories on that movie are quite rare think I was little too young :)

For the Arielle song I come and sing along: "...come on and kiss the girl... ;)"

Am I the only one thinking that they look rather creepy? Little dolls, wax figures and whatnot are really not my kind, I am terribly sorry.
But I could watch Daryl Hannah as a mermaid all over again.
Eva, I should splash some water on Martin. Maybe he really is trying to say something?

They do look a little creepy, but I think that's what makes them look more interesting than a barbie.

Luckily you are not a mermaid, Gordana, considering the amount of rain we've got over here. If you were one, however, you would always be my favourite one baby ;-)!
