Exactly what Mer-crazy said u.u
Is that a wig? Because in all your photos your hair aren't so long. If it is you should definitely grow your hair because you look fantastic with long hair,a real Triton in my opinion!

Great pictures!
And fantastic location!
Is it a lake?
Looks almost too clear to be natural, there are few natural lakes as pretty as in shot 3.
I'd like to know where it is.

Thanks you again to all...
And no i'm not Poséidon... Only one of his son... Lol
So yes i made all by myself, tail, armor, belt...
And yes it's a wig... I have short hair... But to me à merman or mermaid character can not go to hairdresser... Lol... So that why i thought it was better to find a good wig... With hair hand glued one by one on the front... ;) still need to improve the cut and know if it could be possible to fix the hair definitly... That way i won't have to redo it every time i want to use the wig... ;) if you have advice... ;)

I think you already said what you made the armor out of in another thread but didn't you say it is made of silicone? I really haven't seen much if any mer armor so this is really awesome to see! Your photos are so magical I really love the first one and the third one.

Fintastic job on everything dude! :clap:

So the tail is silicone, and the armor is made of latex parts glued on a textured fabric and in other pictures that will come soon i wear resin shoulder armors...

I have some advices but if you're planning on swimming with the wig they would be effortless.... Anyway I know that my cosplayers friends use the ordinary hair product you can find at your local market to make wigs stay in place everytime they use them but water washes them away.



You should find something water resistant or try to use some pins for hair (bobpins I think they're called).

For gluing the front part of the wig to your skin you can use a glue for skin that is waterproof, there are many on the online market :D



Let me know if you need any further advice. ;)

Anceos; you look amazing, and that armor is incredible!
I'm hoping to build myself a few pieces too, inspired by my Viking heritage (NO horned helmets though, ha!),

hehe!


There is no evidence that Vikings used horned helmets in battle, although it is possible that horned head dresses were used in ritual contexts.The horned and winged helmets associated with the Vikings in popular mythology were the invention of 19th-century Romanticism
from wikipedia, because other sources are scarce on interwebz.

Freyja that's too funny!! Not a fan of the horned helmets and hubcap bras? :lol:

Haha, no! I'm not a fan because Vikings didn't wear them, but they constantly appear whenever Vikings are represented, all over the world.
I think the armor 'bra' and horned helmet started during the Victorian age, in the theater. It really took hold after Wagner's representation of Brunhild in the opera; The Ring. Sorry, I'm rambling now, ,lol! I could go on about how ancient Scandinavian tribes may have used horned helmets for ceremonial purposes, but they weren't dumb enough to just wear them around, let alone into battle ;)

A natural lake, or a swimming pond? ;)

anceos
06-24-2015, 06:53 PM
Hi sorry was really busy between working at night, making my second tail and sleeping... Lol

Funny the hobbit character, i don't remember him... ;)

For the viking concept, i don't see why you don't go to the horned helmet way... Lol i'm joking... Lol

For the place where the photos were taken it's in France, arround some waterfall... The water comes from the mountain, that's why it's clear... ;) You will see more of thé waterfalls soon...

For the wig, well i don't have a pb with fixing it to my head... It's more fixing this style, to not have to redo it every time i go under water... ;)

But i'm glad you enjoy.. ;)

Hahaha! It seems like the Mermaids like my idea about the calendar, Anceos! ;) That would be a fun project. My degree is in visual art and design, so laying it out would be simple enough with great photos from some mermen. Guess I need to get back to the beach with a couple cameras and my tail. lol

anceos
07-04-2015, 03:10 AM
So apparently there could be people interested in... So we should find some mermen to have more pictures... ;)

You look handsome with short OR long hair, Anceos! The nice thing is when you take off the tail you can also take off the wig. That's a pretty versatile look! ;)
