Meet the Mermaid
I love to interact with you guys on social media and below are my favourite places to hang out! So be sure to follow me and let's chat!
My name is Courtney and I am the Vancouver Mermaid. I have been mermaiding* since 2006 when I created my very first mermaid tail out of an old dress. The public appearance in 2011 at the Queen Elizabeth Park where I posed for photos with tourists was the one that really started it all. 2011 was also the year I started my YouTube channel and flew to Vegas to attend the World Mermaid Awards.
Since then I've done several events in and out of the city, participated in several protests and worked hard to define what mermaiding means to me.
I create all of my tails, tops and accessories myself and in 2015 I create MermaidSchool.ca where I post detailed videos highlighting everything you need to know about how to make yourself into a mermaid.
In 2016 I created MermaidSafety.com in response to the mermaid tail bans that have been popping up throughout Canada.
I hope to continue on this magical mermaid journey for years to come and I look forward to sharing it with you all!
*Mermaiding is the term those in the mer-community use to describe the act of wearing a mermaid tail in or out of water.
