Not only is the myth of the ‘mer-people’ long-standing enough to have a world of stories associated with these creatures; there is also a long history of us land lubbers being so keen on these magical beasts that we simply can’t resist turning ourselves into some pretty good imitations of them! So what’s the deal with us trying to become fish-tailed?
So what’s the first step in becoming “Mer”? Well it seems that we just can’t resist the charm of a great big mermaid tail- of course! Not only are kids getting batty about getting fishy-fabric swimming tails, but they are all the rage across the globe with adults too. From back yard pools to costume parties – even Cher had a mermaid outfit. But this was just the beginning! Despite, the “Mer craze” going global, it has come with safety warnings about drowning while wearing these appendages! Warning: wearing a tail can be hazardous.
Breathing is optional!
Next is the ability to hold your breath….! Such is the strength of the Mer appeal that there are even those having swimming lessons to learn how to take on the tail safely and double as extreme exercise too! With the popularity of free diving (a whole world of holding your breath while swimming to depths) also on the rise, it makes you wonder if that can be easy in a neoprene tail! And there’s more - participants are expected to be able to synchronise swim- could this be a health craze too far for me?!!
No one said that being a mermaid is meant to be easy. Although get just 3 of the mermaid Scatters across the reels in Mermaid Millions and you get a regal ten free spins to get you started on earning some mer-tastic dosh!
Swim like a dolphin
Now you gotta be able to swim right? Esther Williams has to be the best mermaid of them all. She was a talented and multi-award winning swimmer, turned Hollywood siren in LA’s movie heyday and was known as the “Million Dollar Mermaid”. She became famed for her hit films including “Dangerous When Wet.” Williams specialised in glamorous sub-aquatic musicals and films and it made her name around the world - but boy, could she swim- just like the real thing!
You need a tail, right? The “mermaid tail” has also been made by prop specialists to aid a woman who had both legs amputated so that she can enjoy the freedom of movement replicated by having a “mermaid’s tail”. She loves her bespoke tail and is planning to use it to compete in a triathlon!
Deep water treasure hunter
But it’s not just the romantic idea of the Mer which is turning heads.
Brainy scientists are keen to replicate the swim techniques of these sub-aquatic divas. Stamford University, one of America’s foremost universities, has created a super technical robo-dive suit that is inspired by mermaids to allow divers to safely recover treasure from sunken ships!
