Just a little over a week away from MerPalooza!
I don’t know how many of the merfolk that plan on attending, but I hope to see you there with “mervelous” smiles on your faces. It will be quite the event.
Look for me behind the camera and for The Mermaid Studio represented as a vendor during the trade show.

Mermaids marching in the 31st Annual Mermaid Parade in Coney Island, NY.
2013 was a special year for the Mermaid Parade because it was threatened by huge losses suffered as a result of Hurricane Sandy. Thanks to massive fund raising effort, the Mermaid Parade carried on unscathed.
