Not, mind you, that Mason shies away from sexy side of being a mermaid: the 20-year-old is currently in the running to be Playboy’s Miss Social (NSFW), an online competition fueled by fan votes from Facebook and Twitter. Her typical Monday, Mason told Playboy, is “being a mermaid, practicing my breath holds, working out, collecting shells, taking hot bubble baths, making art, and doing photoshoots.”It also might involve making elaborate shell bras, or attending Merpalooza (take that, NOAA!). But Mason isn’t the only Florida lady hot-gluing mollusks and caring for her own fancy tail.
