Mermaid (knitted toy) by Sayraphim

Available to buy on…

This was a mermaid I knitted for my mum a few years ago. I always try to photograph them in a logical location, and from each shoot I always end up with one beautiful, arty shot that I really want to share with the world. And where better than Red Bubble :)

I love the fact she has the city in the background!

    Thank you! The cityscape in the background was a happy coincidence, I went to the beach closest to my house, sat her on a rock and suddenly noticed the city behind, so madly started shooting from the best angle to incorporate it.

    I love those unexpected awesomenesses!

    Her blue highlights match the sky and water. Lovely pearls.

  • Thank you so much. I figure that the only real hair colours a mermaid could have are ones that would help camouflage her under the water. The pearls actually came off a television set I was working on, which was created to be a strip club. I think they’ve found a much better home here :)
