rubber mermaids sell booze

thanks to AJ for this scan from somewhere on the net. not sure how old it is or if the campaign is still running. just another example of rubber and fetish imagery used to sell stuff to a mainstream audience.

before the hard core latexistas out there tut-tut over this hijacking of images and their fetish, its glimpses of latex in a mainstream media sources when i was young that might of planted the seed to be where i am now.

meanwhile, i wonder if its possible to swim in a pool in a dress and mermaid tail like that? i bet they never tried it though rubaquagirl probably has..

Slinkyskin.com actually used to manufacture latex mermaid suits, and had some videos online of people swimming in them.

Isnt a latex tail I guess, but this guy made latex ones, and I think they are 'swinable'
