I Really Am A Mermaid!

My mermaid membership arrived in the mail this morning, officially certified from the magical kingdom of the Merpeople. So it's indusputable now - I am a mermaid. See? My official-membership-necklace even says so.

Are you guys totally jealous? Yeah, I thought so.

I've heard that this shop called "I Love Crafty" is selling mermaid-membership necklaces too, although you won't have official certification from the magical Merpeople Kingdom (because obviously you guys aren't real mermaids like me). But I guess you could pretend you were a mermaid, if you had one of those necklaces, and were so inclined...

necklace - c/o I Love Crafty
skirt - c/o Faith & Lola
tights - Yoshida (Japan)
shoes - Japan
t-shirt - Thank You Mart (Japan)
bag - DIY (instructions here)

Now this definitely falls into the realm of science fiction, but speculative biology is always a fun topic. This page features several awesome images that speculate on what the anatomy of a mermaid would look like. Below is the skeletal anatomy of a mermaid:
Also, I found this pretty funny: did you guys know that last year, the US government had to make an official statement saying that "Mermaid's do not exist"?

Come on guys, obviously they do exist... otherwise who would have sent me my official mermaid necklace...?

  5. Haha I love the speculative mermaid skeleton and the fact that the US government had to make a statement that mermaids don't actually exist. Good times.

  7. Hello! My I haven't been here in quite a while (and feeling that pang of guilt). You look so different. I am loving your hairstyle right now. the curly bob really suits you. also with this outfit incorporate pink, baby animals and mermaids, I feel there is nothing that could make it better :D How do possibly balance studying with blogging, because I am finding so little blogging time right now. And I'm missing it

    1. If I were doing highschool 5 days a week I wouldn't have time for it either! Uni is easy (plus, I only do part time right now so it's even easier. I go in on average 1 and a half days a week, haha).
      And thank you :)

    1. OMG did you know that I didn't even think about that when I put together the outfit?! I just did that subconsciously because I thought the bag would go nicely with the colours, and because it's cute haha. And thank you! :)

  15. I'm not sure what I'm more amazed by - your MERMAID FREAKIN' MEMBERSHIP or the fact that the US Gov felt the need to release a mermaid denying statement. There's more than a whiff of Roswell surrounding this...

  16. Haha i love stuff like this! Last year a few local UK governments were forced to issue a statement admitting that, if there ever were a zombie apocalypse, they wouldn't be prepared for it and the city probably wouldn't survive. Which is a bit worrying when you think about it.

  19. I just found you through Old Red Boots, and I am SO GLAD I did. I'm always saying that science and girlyness are NOT mutually exclusive--thanks for supporting my claim! I'm subscribing and eagerly looking forward to more. Even if you ARE a mermaid and not a human. ;-)

    Have a wonderful weekend,

    1. Hmmm I don't think so - i think it is polyester. It has such a lovely sheen though! It's so shiny and mermaid like :)
