Growing up I wanted nothing more than to be a mermaid (which I consider weird now because I am deathly afraid of fish and going into water that isnâ€™t chlorinatedâ€¦but I digress). Ariel was my hero. We had a pool in our backyard and all of the neighbor kids would come over, weâ€™d put the circle rings around our feet, attempt to swim, and play The Little Mermaid. I was also in pageants at that time and my go to talent routine was â€œPart Of Your Worldâ€.
I saw a clip of 20/20 on TheFrisky featuring a woman named Hannah Frasier that had the same childhood dreams as I didâ€¦the difference? She carried that dream into adulthood and made it a (semi) reality.
You can ACTUALLY have custom made latex tails, take a mermaid course at â€œMermaid Campâ€, and transform yourself into a mythical sea creature looking for Prince Eric.
Iâ€™m still not sure if Iâ€™m freaked out or jealous.
