Hi everyone! I am EJP of EJPcreations. The items I make utilize design elements from a bygone time, to create modern, urban body ornaments. I am a mad scientist of a woman specializing in creating tiaras, necklaces, and fascinators, with a noir, and gothic flair. All adornments have a hint of vampire elegance, a dash of Steampunk bravado, and plenty of Neo-Victorian sensibilities. Here is my little blog to showcase some of my creations, the things that inspire me, as well as a scrapbook of curiosities that I have picked up in my wanderings across the web. ~ Please Enjoy …

Disneyland Mermaids

During the summers of 1965 through 1967, Disneyland's Submarine Voyage lagoon housed real live mermaids. The ladies donned tails, frolicked, and sunbathed for about 4 hours each day. There is a video on youtube of them swimming and waving through the sub's portholes as you passed. I can only imagine just how excited the little kids were who witnessed this. This blog even has try-outs for the position in the mid 1960's.
