'Car Wash' Mermaids Celebrating
Although this photo was taken the day of the Mermaid Parade, it is perfect for the day it's being uploaded, July 8, 2010. We are in the (hopefully) final hours (ok, days) of an intense heatwave, where heat records were set all over the east coast of the US.
The way these mermaids are dressed is PERFECT for this weather. Their outfits resemble the entry to a car wash, which are in long slices of plastic. The concept has made it to the fashion world and these mermaids, who were enjoying the parade from the sidelines, made costumes using the concept.
I dedicate this photo to all people who are sweating through heatwaves...everywhere!
