I once took my daughter to see living mermaids. She was fascinated by seeing the men and women in their tails swimming in tanks. I was fascinated to see them holding their breath for so long… I will also admit to some silent admiration in their swimming talent, something I don’t share, despite my love of boats and love of water. I can barely dog paddle. My aunt tried to teach me how to swim once, but other than float, I’m precarious in water. I can drive a boat though!
I decided to try my hand at something different in Second Life though, and become a “living mermaid” at the Accidental Entanglement Gallery. If you are into RLV capture (don’t worry you can leave it off and you’ll be able to stand up just fine) you can get ‘captured’ unwittingly and turned into living statues and works of art… or you can willingly sit down and become live mermaids. So I tried my hand at it.
I needed the proper outfit and a friend of mine had told me that I could pick up some beautiful animated body glitter for just 1L at DeeTalez. I ran over to get that as I knew it was perfect for my avatar! It was true… 1L and the body glitter was mine! I love it and this picture hardly does it justice. You will need to get it for yourself. I have seen this stuff sold on marketplace for hundreds of linden!
I grabbed the revelation body bikini group gift as well. This is free and you get the bikini and the mesh overlay also. For just a moment I popped off the bikini for fun (eeeeee) and hoooo howdy! Hot simmering hot! Or cool… (grins). Enjoy the ocean spray on this one! It comes in the following sizes and is a Free gift:
