Dudeoir x Mermaids

If you’ve never heard of Joshua Varozza listen up merbaes, because this guy definitely caught my attention like a fish out of water!

You may remember him from his previous epic photo-shoot collection that went viral, it had an America theme. But now he dove a bit deeper and decided to come out with this little number.

I can’t decide if it’s funny or cute, but one thing’s for sure – Merman Power!

Would personally love to see more photo-shoots like this even if they are meant for humour, what about you my fishy friends?

 

 

Dismaland: Your New Favorite Nightmare

I came across Dismaland today, created by talented and unique graffiti artist Banksy, and it was glorious.

A way to perfectly describe this magical place is a beautiful nightmare. An apocalyptic fantasy world where morbid reality shadows and looms over our favourite characters from our childhood storybooks and classic movies.

Though some parts may be creepy and even borderline horrifying, it offers a humorous satirical punk rock commentary on our beloved childhood memories and characters. Banksy made sure to handpick his fave artists to collaborate on the adult amusement park, with works showcased from Damien Herst and Jenny Holzer.

Obviously the first image that caught my eye was the one of Ariel, our cherished little mermaid.

Now for something more disturbing than a rippled glitch of a mermaid, a carousel butcher, hangin’ out. What’s up with those lasagna boxes? Wooden horse lasagna I suppose.

Nothing is more frightening than the idea of death, but somehow seeing this Grim Reaper riding along with that dopey grin gets me going.

And who can forget the epitome of princess femininity, Cinderella, who seems to have had one too many drinks at the ball before rushing home to meet her midnight deadline.

What are your thoughts on Banky’s Dismaland? I for one would definitely love the opportunity to prance around the park, maybe while blasting The Cure on my Iphone.

Mermaid School Opening This Sunday!

Back to our roots..
Back to our roots..

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!

giphyAs 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:
