winner will be announced tomorrow :D
About a month ago, I hopped on facebook, and saw this link, attached to this crazy picture of a mermaid girl. By crazy, I mean, it didn't look like a costume. I was instantly intrigued and began clicking away, looking anxiously at the collection of pictures. A photographer had just snapped a few shots using the tails, and seriously. These girls looked like mermaids!!!
I sent a message to the creator of the tails, blabbering about how amazed I was by their realistic appearance. I also expressed my need to get a tail, ASAP, seeing as how we're beach dwellers, and all.
I received two tails, within a week. One teeny, tiny blueberry blue tail for Stella and one long, beautiful golden tail for Maeve. I ripped into that package like it had a million dollars in it, and as I proudly held up the tails, Maeves squeals of delight sealed the mermaid deal. She immediately wanted in that tail. Like yesterday.
Her face, when we shimmied her into it, carrying her to the bathroom so she could see for herself, was absolutely priceless. PRICELESS.
Mamas. Photographer friends. These tails are insane. They're crazy realistic and beautifully handmade. I could sing Kaycee's (owner/designer) of Applejack Apparel praises for weeks. She's been an absolute delight to work with and its evident with every tail mailed out, a little piece of her passion is mailed along with it.
Last week we took our tails to the local beach for a photo shoot. My 5 year old, Maeve, thinks she is in fact, now a mermaid. I kid you not, onlookers, wandering the beach, would stop, gawk and then say something like, "Wow! You've got a little mermaid there!"
Maeve would beam and say back, "Yes I am a mermaid. You found a mermaid!"
Because Kaycee is so cool, and totally gets that its every little girls dream to be a mermaid, she is giving away one of her famous tails... to one reader...one commenter on this post... on this blog!!!!!!
That's right, if you're chosen as the winner, you get your choice of color and size, in any tail found on her site!!!
Oh.... and did I mention the tails are waterproof??? So for those stuck up in the yucky winter weather, have no fear! Slap a tail on your little girl in the bath... I promise it will make her day ;)
Friends listen up; even if you don't have a little girl to squeeze into one of these tails, for the sake of all that's holy, enter for a friend- you just have to see these things for yourself! It would be the most terrific, unique Christmas gift ever!
