    Tops for all mers - mermen and freshwater mers too! (At cost)

    I am preparing to soon open my store - Ocean Heart, which will be selling mer tops and accessories. However I wanted to first want to see what everymer thinks.

    I am offering three designs to be made at cost (only paying for materials) in exchange for a review of the product and a photo of you wearing it. Each design will also include the matching accessories as pictured for no extra cost, just to complete the look... If anymer is interested in a design other than the following three sketches feel free to message me.

    First, for the mermen. Not all of you bother wearing tops as mermen but this is for the mere who would like to, for a gig or general modesty. This design could also work as a more modest mermaid top if no mermen are interested.
    Made with netting and wrapped in seaweed, with a starfish friend or two...

    Next for the freshwater mers. I was inspired by illustrations of water sprites in an Emily Rodda children's book. I feel this would be a lovely and more modest option for the freshwater and marsh mer.
    With tendrils of flowing water plants and a lily in the hair...

    Finally, for the more adventurous mer, like the shipwreck explorer mersona of my friend, this top was inspired by the sail dress from Disney's Little Mermaid. For a mer who looks collecting human things, or a siren repurposing the spoils of her latest conquest. Made of an old sail (not really) and bound in rope, this top also includes the classic dinglehopper in the form of a bracelet...

    I hope you like my designs, any feedback or interest will be appreciated.

    I love the sail top! Not sure how much shipping from Australia to the US would be for it though...

    I like the way that freshwater sprite inspired top looks. What material do you plan on using?

    It will be a mix of Lycra/spandex and possibly some others too.

    And for anyone wondering, these mermaid tops will still be based on bras for extra support and stability.
    If you do want to get in on the deal while I'm selling them at cost, it will only be the first of each design.

    Sorry to anyone who was interested. As my trials of the seaweed design didn't go to plan, I won't be selling them at this stage. I probably jumped the gun a little in my EXCITMENT.

    I hope everything goes well!
    These are seriously some of the most amazing mer tops I've ever seen! (Especially that top most one, looks like he freed his friends from a net and wrapped it around his body, so no one else would get caught.)

    What went wrong with the seaweed top? Could you post some pics? I have some ideas on how to make it.

    Thanks everymer, I'm so glad you like the designs.
    Jaffa - the materials I used just weren't work as I liked. And being a little tight on money I don't have the ability to test out anymore ideas. But if you have some ideas I'm happy to hear them
    Welsey - yeah it seems everymer loves that design - I'll be sure to put out an announcement of it works.
