I recently came across this amazing photo of a crocodile skull engraved with hand made carvings of embellishments and a sitting Buddah..
Pretty amazing right? I know. It’s almost surreal!
The dedication this work of art must have taken is unimaginable. So I searched the web’s nooks and crannies to find the artist and give credit to this glorious art work. Low and behold I found“Bali Organic Arts”!
They source their skulls ethically, as mentioned on their etsy page and facebook, which is really great and comforting.
The best part? They are affordable!
They range from 300 $ and up, which is standard taxidermy pricing for something even basic. Needless to say, I’m keeping my eye on this company, they are very talented and unique!
What do you think about these skulls? Which is your favourite?
You can buy them from Bali Organic Arts! I don’t sell them.
Well this is probably the most mind blowing theory in regards to Disney’s Little Mermaid! Someone special on Tumblr came up with this earth shattering conclusion…
I thought about it a couple of times and it makes total sense. I remember the sisters all sparkling with their own personality when interacting with Ariel. Disney has a knack for slipping in secrets here and there, especially historical connotations, so I say YAY!
So we all know that shedding that beautiful tail and fins can be quite a shock to us and to the urban world. So why not pick some styles that will compliment your inner persona, while discovering your whole new world 😉
This sunday is quite the exciting day indeed. The popular mermaid school from Montreal Aquasirene is now opening it’s new location in Toronto on Queen St!
As an employee for their new division, I thought I would share the news since it’s a unique event and opportunity to not only get in shape by swimming in a monofin, but also fulfilling your dreams of becoming a mermaid for a day (maybe longer if you take a tail home :P)
We all know how expensive silicone, latex, even fabric tails can cost online, so it’s a great place to start and get used to the idea of swimming in a tail before you make the commitment of going custom.
Personally, as someone that’s swam in both fabric tails and silicone, I can tell you that you want..nay, NEED to start off with a lighter material in the beginning, especially if you are not a trained swimmer. Silicone in itself is extremely heavy, and then you have the additional weight of the monofin. At least with the fabric tails the weight is only felt around and on the feet.
Here’s some more super adorable photos of merbaes at the Montreal academy:
So if you’re in Toronto make sure you check out the new mermaid school at the Jimmie Simpson Pool 😉 XOX
