Over 300 People Gather To An International Mermaid Convention

Over 300 people gather to an international event called NC Mermania to swim as merfolk. They believe anyone can be a mermaid or merman. The event is held in Greensboro, North Carolina over the span of three days. Check out their website for more information! 

More info: ncmermania.com

Mermaids swimming in a 17ft deep dive well in Greensboro, North Carolina!

The average tail costs around $3,000! This tail maker called the Mertailor makes custom silicone and fabric tails.

Dinosaurs attack! These people know how to have a good time!

Flip your fins! Mermania is here! Mermaids showing how light their flukes are by flipping them in the air. Most tails are too heavy so these mers were amazed by this feat!

Many photographers travel to this event to capture the beauty of these sea creatures.

I am actually considering buying a tail. For younger mermaid lovers I would HIGHLY suggest Fin Fun mermaid. They have cheaper fabric tails that are a better option for people who want to feel like a mermaid but don't want to drop $3,000. If you want a more expensive tail (about $400) that is a little more realistic but still fabric I would buy a finfolk productions fabric tail. For those who are all in and are willing to spend a lot of money on a very realistic tail, I would suggest buying a silicone tail from finfolk productions.
