Fin-Tastic Mermaid Tights (You Need These)

So today a friend shared with me this incredible and unique idea of scattered realistic scales on tights..

I know right?

Literally the best thing I have seen in the last few months.

These beautifully made, delicate and feminine stockings made from  Etsy’s  Tinkercast.

Their shop is full of magical accessories that will delight and enthrall any mer-bae to splurge and fork over their moolah. They even makes some with branching off fins, for a more fishy appearance.

The touch of delicate glimmer, those peek a boo curved lines and the strategic placement makes these perfect for any cosplayer and aspiring mer- to use for a wearable everyday alluring siren look!

And now I totally need a pair, so I can add it to my ever growing fishy collection!

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.

33ceirene-aquasirene-marielle-chartier-henault-4-L

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:

Mer-MAN, Mer-MAN!

Zoolander said it first, but we’re saying it now, Mermans are trending right now!

The craze for those aquamarine and fintastic teal locks are coming back full force, but this time for men! And who can blame them?

While we know that our mer-girls have been dying their manes for a while now, these boys decided to start working on their beards too!

What do you think of this trend?

What Type Of Mermaid Are You?

tumblr_n0b4ln9ziz1rjw0mwo9_r2_12802

http://www.playbuzz.com/ljxgjp10/what-type-of-mermaid-are-you

I got the “Dolphin Mermaid” – You are very playful and wise, with a knack for making friends, and you love to spend hours playing with your dolphin friends.

Pretty cute quiz if any of you want to find out your inner mer!

LUSHIN’ Mermaid

I’ve always loved LUSH! From the products’ deliciously fragrant aromas to their magical workings, it’s the prefect home-spa brand.

Recently, I was really excited to find out that they created ocean inspired beauty items for all those city merbaes out there that need a little TLC.

Sea Spray 

03767Gives your locks an instant boost of nutritional goodies and beachy- tousled waves. A must have for all those mermaids with  flatter or stiffer manes, since it adds a nice bouncy feel to the hair.

Ocean Salt Cleanser

Not only does the colour remind you of a foamy, frothy ocean wave it also gives your skin a supple, softer glow. The minerals will scrub away any dead skin cells and enchant you with it’s refreshing coconut scent. 05234_b

Shimmer Bar

 Shimmy Shimmy is a massage body butter that smells like vanilla cupcakes. The glitter and shimmer applies evenly on the skin and provides a beautiful glow. You can even put some in your hair! 01318

Don’t Take Our Tails Away!

11047673

Edmonton mermaids are in extinction! Thanks to this silly new law.

Apparently they are deemed to be “hazardous” in public pools or for the individual swimming in the tails..

Which makes me go..

Black-Guy-Really-GIF

But in all honesty, someone who has NO experience swimming in a tail should take baby steps when diving into the deep end or into dangerous waters.

( it’s common sense!) duhhh

The same applies to pretty much any task, or activity or hobby.

When you’re beginning to learn snowboarding or skating you don’t just go to the highest mountain without prior training or knowledge on how to handle that said mountain or obstacle.

When you’re new at guitar, you don’t just book shows right away, you wait until you find yourself at a comfortable level, enough to get in front of hundreds of strangers and perform.lauren-conrad-yikes

Maybe the problem then, is related to the mermaid tail makers, who have gained quite a spike in popularity thanks to popular TV shows like H20 or Youtube mermaids ( cause really mermaid tails have been around for much longer, think of the performers you’ve seen at big casinos or high end bars.) But how on earth would you moderate who gets a tail and who doesn’t?

Luckily Marielle Chartier Henault, founder of AquaMermaid Academy in Montreal, has a positive view on this matter; “It makes people happy. You can’t be mad or sad when you see a mermaid.” The schools plan to spread across Canada this very year starting with Toronto and following with Ottawa.

What are your thoughts on this new ban merbaes?
