An amputee girl, whose legs were removed from the knees down, had a special mermaid suit made for her by Weta, the good folks who do the concept art and special effects for such films as Lord of Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, and King Kong.

The tail they made for her came with a suit so she can swim.

Oh great, now kids will want to be mermaids and break their legs...

But seriously, that's pretty cool.

Wow, that is freaking awesome! It kinda gives me a warm fuzzy feeling knowing that Weta did that for her.

Apparently Weta does this sort of thing all the time for people. Well, not mermaid tails for amputees, but prosthetics and make-up for people who have permanent damage to their faces and such.

That's pretty cool of them.

Here's some footage of her getting used to swimming with it:
