Ariel Birthday Parties

Mermaid Bonnie as Ariel with Sebastian

I am obsessed with Ariel….it’s been decades and I still love to dress as her and quote her movies!

I’m always honored when I’m included at a birthday party or special event for a child who is a big fan of Ariel.

When I perform at a party I come dressed to impress! I have several looks to choose from like these:

I bring a robotic Flounder doll who converses with me when I speak to him and moves around, which brings smiles to everyone’s faces!

Sebastian comes too but he’s not one for talking…..because he is all about the music! We bring a speaker and mic with us with a playlist that is sure to get your guests dancing! The music we bring is not only from The Little Mermaid, but includes songs from My Little Pony, Descendants, other Disney princess movies, etc.

And if that’s not enough….I then sing “Part of Your World” that still brings tears to the eyes of all the adults watching.

Planning Your Party

Unless I am performing in a tail, I recommend having me come 30 minutes into your party. Trust me, people will arrive late and I’ve seen some guests get upset that their child missed time with me. I know that sounds weird, and it is, but since I’ve been doing this for over a decade, that’s just how it goes. So trust me that you want me to arrive 30 minutes into your party and not be there at the start unless I have to.

Once I arrive I seamlessly blend in with your guests as I have music playing with my fun sea friends and you don’t have to think about doing anything! I go with the flow and I’m having as much fun as your guests are. Just ask any of my happy families who have hired me to be a part of their special day!

Before you bring out that cake and candles, let me serenade your special birthday princess or prince with “Part of Your World”. Then we can follow that with the birthday song and I can be there for the blowing out of the candles. This is the most special part of every child’s birthday and having their favorite princess be there with them for it will make it more magical!

As cake is being served I will make my exit quietly. This has become my strategy as it’s easier. Just trust me on that. There will be no tears or children following me out the door….just a seamless party for you.

Now don’t worry, because I already planted the seed for closure with your child beforehand. I tell them that I will blow them a bubble heart when I’m back under the sea…and that’s just what happens! I will send you a video of me in the ocean blowing a bubble heart with their name on it wishing them a happy birthday. Show them that after the party is over and you will have an extremely happy child.


For me to come in one of my dresses with everything I just described it’s only $150 for one hour. I add extra fees if the driving time is over 30 minutes from my home and/or if you want extra time.

To come in my tail and entertain in your pool for an hour, my prices start at $250. I charge more for this because my tail is custom made with dragon skin silicone, and it takes a lot more time and effort to transform as a mermaid for your party. Plus there is a whole entrance/exit strategy that must be planned out beforehand with my hosts. I do though have several clamshells I can bring to choose from if performing in a tail. One is for a non water event that is huge with LED lights and another smaller one that can be set up next to any pool.

Here I am in my medium sized clamshell as the Barbie Mermaid-which is another look I also offer.

So you wanna have mermaid hair?


What kind of wigs do you use?

For the sake of saving money, I only use synthetic lace front wigs. Human hair wigs that meet my desire for length and volume cost thousands of dollars. The ones I use cost under $100. I do alot to customize them to make them look real. I get so many compliments on my “hair” from strangers. Just this morning, while I was working out, an acquaintance of mine asked me mid workout, did I get extensions! Mind you I was sweating and doing some intense exercises and my wig still was looking on point! How do I manage to pull this off with “cheap” amazon wigs? Well I’m here to show you.

On a side note, if this seems like too much work for you I am now starting to sell wigs to the public. If there is a wig you want, send me an email with a photo of what you want and I will make it for you. I charge between $100-$150 for this service.

As you an see, all photos were taken at the beach. My wigs have been subjected to sun, sand, swimming in the ocean, and pools. All of them are several years old and have withstood the elements that I have subjected them to. All of the wigs that I recommend are well made but they still need to be customized by you. I have added a headband inside all of them so that way I no longer need to use glue to lay the lace down flat against my head. It takes me just a few minutes to put them on.

I purchase all of my wigs from Amazon. I have tried in person wig stores as well as other websites for ordering from home, but have been disappointed. At least with Amazon I can try out the wig and if it doesn’t work out, then I just send it back and get my full refund. Here are direct links to the wigs that I own that are currently for sale. I will keep updating this post whenever my other wigs are on sale but for now they are sold out because they truly are that awesome!!!

Bubble Gum Pink wig

I love this pink wig!!!! I recently colored the ends with synthetic Rit dye to give it a darker pink at the bottom. I get compliments all the time on it and people think it’s my real hair!!!!! Here is the link:

Ariel/mera wig

I love this red wig. It is highly versatile and takes to straightening and curling easily. I’ve owned this wig for three years, and as you can see, I have swam in it, and gotten alot of uses from it! It lasts a very long time and is amazing value for your money! Here is the link.

Realistic Blonde Wig With Dark Roots

I wear this wig almost daily I love it so much!!!!

They have sold out of both this wig and my other wig that can be parted anyway that you like. I have searched far and wide for a replacement, and this wig is from the same maker and is close. You can color it just as I have colored mine or leave it as it is. Darker roots make the wigs look more realistic in my opinion. This wig comes with grey, blonde, and burgundy. I would personally choose the grey one if I were to color it, if that’s what you are considering. It has a part already in it, just as the one I am wearing in this photo has, but just move the wig over your head to move the part and you can have it be in the middle or any side. Here is the link:

Super Long Mermaid Hair

I love the way it swirls underwater!

This is my favorite wig to swim in as a mermaid. I have it in both the curly and wavy options and both are gorgeous! Here is the link:

What about extensions?

I’ve got you covered too! I used to get these expensive human hair extensions, but they had nothing on these that I’ve been wearing for over 5 years! Once they get old I just get a new pair and use the older ones for when I go swimming. They are only $10! You can even get ombre, which I have started doing as well because the ends of my real hair are lighter than my roots. This photo shows me with the regular brown ones. It’s always been a perfect match for me. Here is the link:

These are my older ones that I swim in and they still slay!



Mermaid Must Haves!

What makes me the expert on mermaid tails and apparel?

Photo by Ziggy Mack

As you can see, I have been swimming as a mermaid for a long time. Actually I started working as a professional mermaid before the big trend hit. There were a handful of mermaids at that time and we would share our successes and ideas with each other online. I will be writing a book about my experiences with the mermaid community then and about my adventures, so stay tuned for that!

I have made relationships within the mermaid community and will only recommend tried and true tail makers and accessory makers. Why? Because I have seen artists come and go and I have seen people get robbed of their hard earned money, and I have seen tail makers use cheap silicone that is actually toxic and dangerous for our bodies. I will only recommend the best for you based on my real world experiences.

What tail do you recommend for my child?

As a former professional mermaid, I get asked this question alot by my friends. I highly recommend the monofins by FinFun for your child. They are soft like socks and won’t scratch your pool liner like the other plastic ones. Trust me on this one. I had two of the plastic ones but they kept slipping off of the back of my daughter’s feet and they created these lines in our liner from her standing in them. Here is the link for just the monofin:

Now, for just $20 more you can get the “skin” with it. That’s a very good deal! Here is the link for the full tail for your child:

Which tail do you recommend for an adult?

If you are just starting to get into mermaiding, then I advise that you start with a fabric Fin Fun tail to get the feel of it. If you want to venture into more realistic mermaid tails then I always recommend The Mertailor. His company has been around longer than any other mermaid company. I bought my second tail from him over ten years ago. The wait time is minimal when you compare it to other tail makers who can take several years to make your silicone tail. There are other brands that are amazing such as Merbellas and FinFolk, but I would not recommend their silicone tails unless you are ready to swim in a heavy silicone tail, have a year or so to wait for your tail to be created, and have at least a $5,000 budget. FinFolk does have beautiful fabric tails that they have made with one of my favorite mermaid artists, Kariel, but you need to join their private club to get on that sale because when they release their tails, the tails are sold out in a few hours.
