It’s Like She’s The Little Mermaid

Double amputee Nadia of New Zealand, recently had her life been changed thanks to a special prosthetic tail. A medical condition at the age of four caused her to lose both legs, and with sports therefore out of the picture she fell in love with swimming. A letter to Peter Jackson’s specialty costume studio apart of the Weta Workshop in New Zealand, led to the creation of this custom prosthetic mermaid tail. How fun!!
