Music: Spiral by Watsonville Patio The Rogue Mermaids: Rebecca MacKay, Sandy Foster, Carol Bisbee, Thandiwe Curtis-Gibson and NW Mermaid Her Royale Hinie had a fabulous time in the Ocean Shores "Wine and Wearable Art Show" accompanied by Jeff MacKay of The MacKay Pirate Family and Randy Foster of Foster Photo Graphix. Invited by Tricia Funk and Eric Bjella, producer/hosts of this first annual Ocean Shores Wine and Wearable Art Show. These experienced wearable art producers put on an elegant, and uniquely fresh fashion show. The theme was "Making Waves" and the mermaids dove right in as the opening performance. The Mermaids were adorned in beautiful luminescent body paint, glitter, sparkles, and scales (thanks to Jeff MacKay). Mermaids Rebecca, Sandy and Thandiwe, glided down the Catwalk dressed in "walking" tails designed by Rebecca MacKay. The tails were hand crafted and painted with luminescent paint. The mermaids entertained the crowd with a glowing Poi Balls and Veils performance done to the magical sound of Enya's "Caribbean Blue." Mermaids Carol and Her Royale Hinie were positioned on the stage in swimmable tails, designed by the mermaids themselves, and swayed to the music with glowing jellyfish lanterns. The catwalk was decorated with the whimsical flavor of the sea, with amazing glowing coral (contributed by Heidi Roggenbauer), mystical fog and two beautiful sails that displayed a film of the mermaids swimming eloquently in their tails with sea turtles, dolphins and glowing jelly fish. The Mermaids were a splashing success. Photos by the talented Randy Foster of Foster Photo Graphix will be available soon of the alluring Mermaids and the other models/artist that were making waves in many fashionable, creative art pieces.

The mermaids will be looking forward to performing at this annual event again next year.
