Prosthetic Mermaid

We've posted before about an aquatic animal being fitted with a prosthtic tail, but this story's a bit different.  A New Zealand woman, who lost her lower legs to childhood medical condition, recently received the prosthetic mermaid tail she's long dreamed of.  The tail and attached suit were built by Weta Visual Effects, the Kiwi FX house behind The Lord of the Rings and King Kong, among others.  Neat.
