Top Mermaid Blogs

I am proud to announce that this blog has been named one of 16 'Top Blogs of 2017' in a recent article. Molly of Everything Mermaid researched over 100 mermaid themed web sites to compile her list of the best.

"I have always loved Mermaids. It started off as a hobby, but the more interaction I get from my 'Mer-friends' the more I realize that there is a whole community out there waiting for connection!"

Check out Molly's entire list in her recent blog post. I am sure you will find plenty of fine reading material. Thank you, Molly!

Fish Girl

Due to come out on March 7th, Fish Girl is a mid-grade graphic novel by illustrator David Wiesner and writer Donna Jo Napoli.

In an article at Entertainment Weekly, columnist Nivea Serrao interviews Mr. Wiesner and Ms. Napoli.

"We both tried for the most realistic story possible. Yes, you have to buy into the idea that mermaids exist. But that’s all."

The article contains three example pages from the graphic novel, the artwork is first rate. Don't miss Fish Girl when it comes out in early March.

Best Mermaid Tails

Sean Fallon of Fashionably Geek recently featured an article entitled, 'The Best Mermaid Tails Money Can Buy'. Mr. Fallon has chosen Etsy seller MerNation as the best there is.

"These custom made tails are crafted from 100% dragon skin platinum cure silicone."

Light Up the Sea

Speaking of high end mermaid tails, how about one that lights up underwater? Sarah Vitak and Makezine bring us the story of a fin-tastic tail created by Erin St. Blaine of North Carolina.

"This project has been three years in the making and has gone through many major revisions to become the beautiful and robust piece that it is today."

Featuring an Arduino microprocessor and a custom smartphone app, this was a serious DIY project. Swim on over and check out the article before you are left in the dark!
