Professional Mermaid and Merman Modeling Jobs

This job posting is for part-time, on-call, job-by-job print and fashion model applicants interested in working for print model, influencer events, trade show booths, music videos, and cocktail parties who meet specific talent casting requirements from our clients.

During these parties models are responsible for picking up a costume from Simi Valley for work before a job if they do not have their own, working an event in a mermaid or merman costume for 1 hour or more while swimming in a pool or posing for photos, and providing a happy, friendly, smile to guests while posing for photos and engaging in small talk.

Mermaid costumes consist of a bikini style bra with mermaid tail. Merman costumes consist of a merman tail.

Please know that unlike most of our jobs which are skills and personality based, our model roles are primarily based on appearance matches to client needs with wages varying based on length of work.

All our print and model-style clients are specifically looking for men and women in excellent fitness, runway or party ready hair and makeup skills that they can do themselves without help, and brilliant, photo-ready, smiles. We welcome all religions, genders, sexual orientations, and racial backgrounds.
