101 Mythical Mermaid Inspirations

From Mermaid Inspired Art to Mesmerizing Mythical Fashion

— January 30, 2013 — Pop Culture
The mystery, beauty and ethereal quality of the half-human, half-fish has led to a myriad of mermaid-inspired innovations. Though a thing of legend, these creatures have managed to inspire within the realm of fashion, entertainment and photography.

With mermaids flowing and luscious long hair, beautiful and shiny scaly fins and natural glow, the mermaid gives off an extremely intriguing and captivating persona. This fixation on the mythical creature has been further sensationalized by the Disney’s ‘the Little Mermaid.’ The movie, which features a red-haired underwater princess named Ariel, may have come out in 1989, but it is still an extremely popular character that is beloved by both children and adults.
