Myths, Legends, Tales, and Folklore

When I became a mermaid of Second Life, it was not just because the tails are so beautiful. It wasn't a childhood memory of The Little Mermaid, or my deep love of the sea and all the creatures and treasures it holds. I became a mermaid from my studies of the history behind them. The beautiful tales opened my eyes to so many new stories and new twists, that I wanted to "become" them.

As I look through pages of these stories, I watch my own mermaids story unfold in Second Life. Many of the fins I create is from my interpretation of a story I have come across. In the blog post to come I plan on not only including the history of the stories, but hopefully a fin to go with them. And I hope no one becomes offended as I take some artist license and make stories of my own from them.

Steampunk Mermaid

I have always been interested in the fun inner workings of steampunk. Not only is everything very intricate, but it shows SL basic prims at their best. Plus nothing is to wild or unusual to dream up with steampunk.

I think there is so much to explore with and RP with (if you like that). SL is so wonderful about letting try new and wonderful things, and explore these fantastic worlds. Just look at me.... a mermaid!

So in my quest for something new in my line of fins, I thought of combining these two worlds together. Now for mer and legged alike, anyone can enjoy the depths of the waters with this brand new invention. filtering air to water or water to air, exploration will never be the same!

Depending on the tide and how this is excepted by others, I may be inclined to invent more and share them with our world!

Stretching my blogging fins

As a mermaid, I tend to keep mostly to myself and enjoy the cool waters of Atargatis. Always looking for new ways of entertaining myself, I tend to come up with an assortment of fins as well as furniture and custom builds. I tend to do a lot, and find SL a wonderful place to express creativity. I hope to start venturing out more and keeping you informed about all the exciting adventers I have under the waters of this large land.
