Ashley Taylor has created several pieces of art featuring various characters from pop culture as mermaids — including Leia Organa from Star Wars. Taylor’s illustration featured Leia in her white dress from A New Hope turned into mermaid attire with a jellyfish that looks like R2-D2. Smashing, right? Kelli Jenkins was so taken with the drawing that she made the costume for Phoenix Comicon. She replicated the entire look, including the jellyfish — which she modified into an umbrella.
