Mermaid Holly here! It’s terrifying, but myself & some of the Art Gowns’ models have been turned into mermaids.
We know who did this, and Princess Blue Holly has vowed to capture the evildoer, and return us to our regular gorgeous model selves. In the meantime, we’ve decided to have a fashion show, and I’m your host for the Art Gowns’ Mermaid Fashion Show.
First on the Runway is Mermaid Gigi, in a very Avant Garde quadruple fin, one shoulder eye catcher. Right behind is Mermaid Rene Rosso in an ultra-green sweeping fan tail extravaganza with strapless bra top and full length gloves. What a show stopper!
Unfortunately Mermaid Rene Rosso won’t be singing a Torch Song for us, as it just sounds like she’s gurgling.
The usual beauty team can’t breath under water, so some very talented MerChicklets were hired by Mermaid Gigi for the event.
Above: Nora and Skippy were in charge of Art Direction.
MiCHELL was in charge of hair.
Lacy was the make-up artist.
Pearl was the costume stylist.
Coming up is Mermaid Marina. This off the shoulder extra long sweeping, in and out, undulating uni-tail is all the rave this season!
Below, Mermaid Shehanne shows off her, direct from Europe, fan fin and tease tail couturier heartbreaker.
Thank you for attending our show tonight! The Mermaids are very tired now, and are hitting the seaweed hay.
Rene Rosso transforms to Mermaid Rene Rosso, then from Mermaid Rene Rosso to Princess Blue Holly Mermaid. ONE – Starts the show.
Mermaid Princess Blue Holly is off to avenge the Art Gowns’ Models. Stay tuned for more on this story.
🌹Big Thank You’s to all of the Art Gowns’ Models. 🌹
Their names, under their Mermaid selves, are hot. So visit their fab blogs.

What can I say except you’ve done swimmingly well!
Gorgeous, the whole lot of ’em are gorgeous!
LOL! TY, Dale! Gotta make dinner now, but will be over after feasting…or in the am!
I’d like to try drawing you…. in my fantasy way, if I may?
No way! I’d be honoured…
Way! Just give me some time. I’ll send you a sketch, when you least expect it!
Very nice work.
The Blue Mermaids
of a Blue Lagoon
Let them frolic
in the sequined fabric
of my febrile imagination
So please don’t
capture them too soon🧜♀️😎
Oooo, thank you!
What a lovely poem for the mermaids!
…. and I learned a new word. “febrile” It’s fabulous. Why have I never heard it before?
Anyway, when the spell is lifted, the will be beautiful models, once again, and I will draw them in more Art Gowns’ creations. 😀
I must confess, your gowns have
a febrile effect on me, Resa 🌹😎
Such a great look. Well done!
Yay! Thank you, Alex! 😀
You know what? I’m getting a bit sick of Holly! I think she stinks bad and her hair mocks my male pattern balding. But if you and Holly apologise, that’d be fantabulous.
Otherwise, all is fantabulous! It’s the weekend. Revel!
Oh Really? Well, you take that back. When you need PBH (aka Holly) to save you from evil doers, don’t come calling! Otherwise, have a great weekend. Revel indeed!
Perhaps Revel is a cheese eating minion of the evildoer that turned theArt Gowns Models into Mermaids?
I’m very suspicious now, we are on to something and someone.
We can’t let ‘Oron throw us! I told him you wash your hair in morning dew, rose petals and baby’s breath. Stinks??? Indeed!
He’s a cheese, Roquefort … perhaps?
PBH has put out a APB for ‘Oron. This will be easy.
CLUE…. try Santa’s hideout…… not the real Santa, ‘Oron’s drunken dolt Santa.
So obvious. I suppose he didn’t think PBH would think of that. He doesn’t know who he is dealing with! I’m off to the North Pole.
Hohoho! Right on!
We are too smart for him.
Is it the weekend? I hadn’t noticed. (nod to that line from Four Weddings and a Funeral there)
“the castle beckons” ?
You’re gonna need a bigger anecdote.
Did I ever tell you about the crane incident?
Yes, the Frasier Crane incident.
What about Niles? He’s best.
I love Niles.
Oh yeah! I’ll have you know Holly washes her hair in morning dew scented with rose petals and baby’s breath! I (perhaps we) do not apologize.
A thousand times NO.
Yes, to your no! I meant ya to you.
You see, this is how ‘Oron divides us. Oh I know he’ll claim he was in bed, as it is 2 a.m. where he is, but I don’t buy it!
Don’t buy it either. This is the work of ‘Oron, no mistaking it!
I used to wash my hair with mint shampoo and conditioner. Now I have almost no hair. Coincidence?
Possibly! Perhaps it is a curse, or a punishment, or a dietary thing? Huh?
I drink a lot of mint tea. So, obviously!
see ya soon
Your mermaids are gorgeous. I love your drawings . And I love all your mermaids. However, the slide show of Ms. Mermaid Rosso turning into Mermaid Princess Blue Holly is stunning.
That’s not an easy transition! Thank you Tim! 🙂
Thank you, Timothy! The mermaids are waiting to be avenged, and return to their gorgeous model selves. PBH will save the day.
The transition is difficult, but PBH is up to it!
Delightful Mermaids! All so talented! Wonderful post!
Thank you, Irina! it was a lot of fun making this post.
Gorgeous sketches of our female heroines turned Mermaid Resa! PBH is totally exhausted , all that swimming and defeating the evil doers. Rene Rosso just sits around singing, wtf?
Well, as it is at the moment, RR is just sitting around and gargling, due to being under water.
In the next episode, RR will attempt to seduce the evildoer…. with song, of course. Evildoers are big time suckers for Torch Songs.
A beautiful voice has its siren’s song.
Nonetheless, I know PBH is swimming herself ragged. Look how thin she is! It’s heartbreaking! What a superhero!
That’s quite a relief to know that RR is going to pitch in with that gorgeous voice of her and subdue seductively the evil doer! ❤
Rrrrrrrrrrrrr… will be in touch on this one.
Will need 2 songs. ❤
One for the seduction, and one for the finale! xo
No problem, RR is on it.
Cool! RR wants to help, but she’s cursed with utter beauty and a siren’s song.
She practices scales twice a day, and she’s gurgling her little heart out as we comment.
Oh, don’t defend her just because she is cursed with utter beauty, perhaps a little military cadence this time!
Okay… a bit of a snit here.
RR refuses to get up at the crack of dawn.
The most she will do is wear a military themed Art Gown…. once PBH has helped return her to her regular self. RR is worried about her hair and nails, with all this salt water around. She has threatened to not show up for her next gig!
I’m beside myself. Ive handled a lot of Stars, but she is the most temperamental.
I knew it! I will have to speak to her personally. I hope I can reason with her, such a Diva!
You can try, but Divas are special, and they know it. BTW… the New York Symphony Orchestra is hoping for colab!
They’ll be no living with her now.
Reblogged this on House of Heart and commented:
Fabulous sketches Resa! Who is this dastardly evil doer? PBH is totally exhausted from saving the lovely mermaids while Rene Rosso sits on her behind singing. What’s with that!
We must all tune into the next episode of PBH &the Mermaids’ Evildoer!
(TY for the reblog)
Thankfully we have the chicklets for hair and makeup…otherwise a total disaster. Thank you Gigi for saving the day!
As a Costume Designer, I can attest to the importance of the Beauty Department. So much to say about this, but yes, I Thank Gigi, as well. I mean… who else can breath under water?
Her talents are miraculous, Chicklets to the rescue once again.
I was immediately gobsmacked by the stunning Mlle. Holly in her mermaid regalia followed by a royal lineup of finned beauties. I found myself giggling through my fingers at RR belting out a bubbly version of Etta James, but when I saw the merChicklets, I was transformed into a state of Narnian wonderment. My Gosh Resa! The evil doer may have actually created a new act to beat all before. I’m a total fool for a nicely adorned mermaid. Ah, but those merChicklets…I can’t look away. Well done Madame, well done 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Thank you so much, Dan! This was a lot of fun! I’ll be following up with the complete adventure on GLAM in about 2-3 weeks…. how PBH & RR work together to catch the evil doer, who he is, and RR will sing a couple of torch songs.
I just peeked! I see you are blogging again. I didn’t know. I’ll be by after I paint the door outside. How is your respite going. Well, I suppose once I read a post or 2, I’ll know.
Thank you so much for dropping by! – Resa
Hi Resa! Awesome news, I never tire of the Gown Gang’s daring exploits. I’m doing good, had some major plan changes due to a whining back so I missed my adventure kick off. Still, I’m filling the Zen bucket whenever possible. Next attempt for a trail walk will be in mid November.
Really love all the sketches!
Thank you so much, Valerie!
Apologies for missing this comment!
I appreciate you so much! -Resa
No problem! ❤
Oh, Resa, you outdid yourself. This is wonderful. Holly is magical and her transformation is amazing and so much fun to watch. The chicklets are as honored as I am to have been included in the fabulous post. I feel that we should gang up on the evil one who attacked Holly and take him for a nice LONG underwater swim. We mermaids stick together and to take any lip for the evil ones.
Again, this is a beautiful work of art. The mermaids are gorgeous. Thank you so much for including the chicklets and me. We are so very grateful. ❤ ❤ ❤
Thanks Gi! We will hang together & gang up on the evil one..and well, we will prevail.
There will be a further episode on GLAM. It’s more of a PBH post, but ties in.
Good you were here with your Beauty Team of MerChicklets. We couldn’t have done it without you! ❤ ❤ ❤

Oh my lord… (been trying 3 times to leave a comment let us hope this time it goes through. ) You have outdone yourself. I louve this. All the ladies are fabulous. And pulease thank the Merchicklets. I need to borrow them ,more often.
Yes, the MerChicklets are all very talented. Perhaps they could do makeovers on the Dudes! Do the Dudes swim?
Yes, the Mermaid post was a lot of fun to make, and the tale of PBH will be continued on my GLAM blog in a few weeks!
Thank you so much for being a mermaid!
I love being a mermaid. I am sure the MerChickets are more than welcome to make over the dudes… I can just hear them whining from here. And alas they do swim or I’d have drowned them by now…… LOL
YES!! It worked this time xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Mermaids have never been dress so beautifully! Sea-rously gorgeous.
LOL! Thank you , Janet! – Resa
Love the humor of this. As always your gowns are beautiful.
Cool! Not everyone gets the humour… or maybe they do, but don’t say anything.
Thank you so much!
You’re welcome, Resa. I enjoy any sort of collection and commentary you offer your readers. ❤
Hi Resa, your sketches are so enchanting and dreamy! And love how you weaved them together with that storyline. Really cool, inspiring and uplifting! Loved it, thanks 🙂
Yay! It was so much fun to do. 😀
I can imagine 🙂 It shines through!
another try to comment…

Unfortunately queen Hera couldn’t pose as she’s been too busy [the price of popularity! 😉 ] but maybe she’ll make it in another fashion show! Love to Resa and Holly and all the lovely mermaids! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo …wait to Johnny and Jeepo too [how come they didn’t pose …well, at least Jeep!!!? 🙂 ] xoxoxoxoxoxo
I adore you, and your music!
And Hera’s music ! WOOOOOF
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww I adore you and your art …everything you do!!!!!!!!!!! Woof from Hera and looooove (to Jeepo and Johnny too!) xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
I laughed so much reading this post! Absolutely fabulous, Resa! The gowns and models are all stunning. Well done, everyone! 😀
So happy you had a good laugh! 😀
I had many a laugh making the post! 😀
Resa!!! I love how you “draw” and “colour” us into a world of beauty, joy, elegance, mystery, transformation. Looking forward to the next episode!!!! Hugs and more hugs…
YAY!!!Just having a bit of fun with whatever artistic ability I have! More hugs back at you!!
Perfect and gorgeous Art Gowns model fun. Headlines: Art Gowns take a dip! Underwater Art Gowns! Art Gowns Models make a splash! Art Gowns on the crest of a wave! Mer-maid in Heaven! 🙂 🙂 :)X
I’m glad you had fun.
Your headlines are wonderful.
I did belabour over the headline. Still, I’m happy. 😀 X
These art gown mermaids are beautifully well illustrated and everything else is phenomenal and breathtaking. 🙂
Gorgeous and perfect. 🙂 Resa, you are such a brilliant and talented friend. 🙂
I’m very happy you like these illustrations. It takes a long time to make an Art Gown. So, my drawings and imagination are filling the void….. I hope!
Patience with any art take time and no rush. You’re illustrations are incredibly good and visually stunning. Your imagination is brilliant my friend. 🙂
A lovely post. As usual. Thanks for bringing in the magic. 🙂
Yay!!! Magic is fun! 😀
Resa, the mermaids are glorious but I’m especially enamored of the beauty team! xo
I understand! We were lucky to have them apply their talents to make us beautiful!
Wow! Love this post! 🧜🏻♀️💕✨
These are gorgeous. And I think you ladies are very mistaken. I believe you have been mermaids for quite some time. I have always found you ladies enchanting. Everything is perfect.
Sorry, for the late notice, but you are the Inspiring Woman of WordPress for my Monday post. I hope I did you and your blog page justice with my words. I truly admire you and your work and I did my best to convey that. It will post tonight at 10 PM EST.
I hope you like your little mention on my blog.
On a different note Ms. Mermaid, I read the lovely comments on this post. There were two you missed replying to. Cindy Knoke and Valerie Cullers. You can erase this part of the message so no one sees it. I just know you would never ignore anyone Sweetie.
Thank you, dear Lonely!
I’m having a dinner thingy tonight, but will try to slip away & be the first like, and hopefully comment.
So thank you for mentioning the 2 comments I missed. I will answer those, and not erase this part of the comment. An honest oversight is an honest oversight.
FUNtastic! You are all so wonderful, and with a very positive mind. Thank you, and apologize the delay. Michael
No apologies needed. It’s always fab to see you, whenever you pop in.
Thank you Resa. Very kind of you! Hope we will see Holly and you sometimes real clothed in one of your famous artgowns. Best wishes, Michael
Me too! However, the 2 of us have more fantasy coming!
Thank you, Robert!
Most beautiful design of gown like a mermaids.no doubt here-everybody is crazy for this gown like me❤
Most welcome,dear with love.❤
Reblogged this on sketchuniverse and commented:
⚓⛵ HI SISTERS! AS YOU CAN SEE, EVERY MERMAID HAS AN OCEAN AND A UNIQUE DRESS. ENJOY!
Yay! Thank you so much for the reblog!!!
Oh Resa, you really deserve the best 😉
You are very kind, and have made me happy!
I love this! Sorry I missed seeing it earlier.
I don’t catch all articles on blogs I like. I enjoy blogging, but I am not a machine!
This is so nice! I like Gigi’s drawing too!
GIgi looks awesome!
The mermaid style is incredible – how did you even think of that?!!
Lol! I don’t remember, but I do think of mermaids and other fantasies at times.
It’s part of the creative nature, like when you write poetry. Luv ya! xo
