mermaid series #2 - ocean siren

The second look in this series is more focused on the mermaid who stays in the ocean without surfacing, who resides where a great deal of marine wildlife swims. She lives in a world that is permanently tinted blue and it's a little darker than the girls who surface.

Here's a little secret: my room gets next to no natural light because I'm a vampire, plus I usually wake up when the sun is no longer shining directly in my window, which is hardly a surprise--my window faces east, so the morning light doesn't usually enter my room. I take my natural light photos standing in front of my parents' bedroom windows. (It also makes for a nicer background because their room isn't the Bermuda triangle.)

Photos taken against a wall like this one are most likely ones taken in my bedroom. The blue eyebrows in this look are surprisingly wearable, although I think it's time to trim my eyebrows because as soon as I raise them, you can see the hairs clearly not within the confines of blue liner!
