I'm over the ocean with excitement for this artwork by @sketchderps ❤️💦 Featuring all of Avalon's most iconic costuming, this sketch will be featured on many of Orange County Mermaid's branded assistant shirts, logos, and is "shore" to appear elsewhere in the near future! 🌊
Love this up-close snapshot faire photographer Jack Woolley captured this past weekend at @renfestcorona ✨
So many little ones came out JUST to see the real, live mermaids and watching their eyes light up as they got to visit with a mermaid through the window of our dunk tank, or curiously touch our scales while sitting on our "glam shell" throne is an experience unparalleled! 💦
Bringing mermaid magic to events all over SoCal. ✨
Guten Morgen! bzw. Mittag?! 🌞 Instagram hat vor wenigen Sekunden dieses Bild von ganz alleine gepostet; kA wieso, das war grad ein bisschen schräg 👽😂 Hier also nochmal.. 😁 Entstanden an meiner Traumbucht. ❤
I was afraid to love.
Not just love, but to love her.
For she was a stunning mystery.
She carried things deep inside her that no one has yet to understand,
I was afraid to fail,
like the others.
She was the ocean
& I was just a boy
who loved the waves
but was completely
swim." 🐚 Christopher Poindexter.
P.S.: Wer findet passend dazu das versteckte Herz im Bild? 😊 #güigüibeach#ocean#lyric
Not the BEST picture in the world, but we'll roll with it. 🤣 So... yesterday, someone brought up the topic of #spiritanimals (after I posted that video of my toad buddy). Do you believe in having a spirit animal? And if so, what is yours (if you know)? 🐾
Although we were joking that mine is a toad, I'm like 159% positive that mine is indeed a spider of some sort. I have always been fond of spiders ( #MermaidPhantom is actually named after a spider) and I go out of my way to ensure they stay safe... yes, even black widows have been personally escorted across the road. When I witness one getting killed, I feel it. I feel it very deeply. 💔 Spiders are my favorite creatures of all.
Like a spider, I like to spend time building things that take a lot of time, energy and hard work in the hope that they will pay off in the future. I almost always catch what I wish to catch 🕸 I'm a creature that prefers to live mostly in solitude and am actually introverted... despite having a large presence on social media. I am a kind & gentle person... although I will attack if need be. And, I will crawl down my web out of curiosity if someone gently tugs the silks 🙃
I have a tendency to dress Goth... which sometimes leads people (mostly offline) to believe that I'm a bad person, a weird person... evil, even. Most don't realize that I'm simply being myself & that I'm harmless. I truly mean well. Please don't step on me. If you get to know me, you'll know that I'm here to catch bugs. I'm here to be helpful. Not wanting to bite anyone or cause a ruckus... looking like I do is just part of what makes me feel my best so I can give my best to the world 🕷
There are tons of other traits we share as well. I'm not the best with relationships and almost ALWAYS manage to kill them off quickly (relationships, not people 😂). I have a never-surrender attitude, & rebuild my web everytime it gets messed up... which sometimes is all I seem to spend time doing. I have a great deal of patience too... good things take time and I know this well. Also, I am small, but I am mighty. 💪
An ambassador of the freshwater mermaids, you never know where she may make her next appearance! ("Mainstream" television networks, anyone? 😉) Catch this artwork on our limited edition #orangecountymermaid apparel, coming soon! 💦
It was my new Years resolution this year to go a mermaid convention this year and I've been able to go to TWO! Such a blessing!

Video of gorgeous staff member who used to be a competitive swimmer, but had to take time away due to chronic illness. We love to see her having a chance to still enjoy the water and look stunning while doing it, but now as a mermaid. 🧜🏼♀️💕 Comment below if you think Gracie should just keep swimming!

☀️🌊Vitamin Sea 🌊☀️ Mermaid caught on drone video SOUND ON 🔊Location: Atlantic Ocean near Key Largo. #FridayMood By capturing beautiful images and video in the ocean I hope to inspire you to love, explore and protect the place I call home! 💙 Will you help me continue #SavingtheSeas ? Comment “shell yeah” below!
I squint way more in ocean water than fresh water! Lol I’d say fresh spring water is the easiest to open your eyes in because it doesn’t hurt at all & its very refreshing on my face. Second goes to open ocean as it never hurts underneath the water but it stings a little when you come up for air! Because I constantly come up to breath my eyes will get red and irritated but as soon as I’m underwater again it alll feels natural ☺️ The harshest on my eyes has to be pool water! Especially pools who just used chlorine, of course! Chemicals in my eyes never feel good and will always cause redness and irritation. Sometimes I’ll leave a gig with blurry vision 😱
What body of water is your favorite to swim in ?? ☺️💗 #mermaiding#mermaidlife#openeyes#oceanswimming
Reasons why the Florida Springs is one of the best places to mermaid, as told by someone who has been there exactly once.
1. The water is a tolerable temperature
2. Its a natural body of water, so not a pool = feeling more mermaid
3. The water is so clear because of the current!
4. ITS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!
5. All the mermaids who come swim are amazing and lovely such as .sara
