Mermaids!

The inimitable Coney Island Mermaid Parade. OK, it was a month ago, but these photo galleries make for some fun browsing. Planning your costume for next year? Our resident mermaidologist offers some inspiration. (some nudity - it's mermaids after all!)

Arrrgh! I came < ---> this close to going, but I wasn't able to make it.

Next year...and yes, I do have a costume planned.

I'm in love with the first Mermaid in that gallery.

Looks like a more 'normal,' low-key neighborhood version of Fantasy Fest in Key West.

p.s. Who knew MeFi had a resident mermaidologist? That's a great site, iconomy.

Coney Island is at once amazing and disgusting--definitely worth a trip if your in NYC if you're into urban ruins-sur-mer.

That and there's great hot dogs and the boardwalk is still fun, and it's a quick walk over to New York's "Little Odessa" in Brighton Beach.

Blush, one of these URLs has a picture of my fiancée (see also her livejournal entry).

I love the Mermaid Parade! I've made the trek to Coney Island the last two years (in heat and rain, respectively) but had to miss it this year. It's a lot easier to get close enough to see along the boardwalk than anywhere along the otherwise also great Village Halloween Parade.

Feh. Fantasy Fest in Key West is a more 'normal,' low-key neighborhood version of Fantasy Fest in Key West. You guys shoulda seen it back in the day. I'm just sayin'.

Great post - and always good to have an excuse to hang out with iconomy's mermaids.
