This Beastie project called for extensive research into the latest trends in underwater fashion! So, Mermaid Beastie is sporting a very sylish seashell bikini top…
… And a delicate starfish hair grip, to keep her lustrous locks out of her eyes.
Still, these things hardly prove that this Beastie is truly a mermaid. For that, you’d probably want to check out her beautiful, sparkly tail!
Garter stitch gives her tail its distinctive scaly texture, and eagle-eyed readers will notice strategically-placed seams that will allow her to sprawl seductively on rocky outcrops, rather than sitting bolt upright!
