The rules:

  • Any maid or matron (or if you attempt to look like one) may enter.
  • Be aware that mermaids, being magical creatures, may be seen on land with actual legs! Therefore, a tail is not a requirement.
  • Please be adorned in some manner that will make the judges think,"huh..a mermaid might wear that"
