See Ann Blyth Turn Into This Mystical Being
A last adjustment before the mermaid can slip into her right element, the water. The legs must have room enough to move so she can flip her tail.
So you don’t believe in mermaids, do you. Not any more than you believe in any other mystical figure. Well, maybe your right and maybe not. Anyway here you can see how a "real" mermaid is created in Hollywood. Ann Blyth is turned into a lovely example of the species by professional make-up artists.
Alright then, the tail is made of rubber with a thin layer of a silvery metal on top, but who cares. Tinsel Town is only make believe what ever way you look at it, and when the make-up team is told to turn Ann into a mermaid, that’s just what they’ll do. But the job was not an easy one
