Those Crazy Weta Kids

Weta, the company that created armies of plastic-rubber beings for the Lord of the Rings movie recently made a woman into a mermaid.

Nadya Vessey (now the second most famous Nadya of 2009) who had to have both her legs amputated before she was 16 asked the ingenious design team to give her a tail.

Two years, a bunch of 3D modeling, some poly carbonate things later – voila, she can glide through the water just like a real mermaid (well, if mermaids were real).

So cool!

Anyone who has spent time with the LOTR DVD extras will recognize the quasi famous people in the video
