    Mermaiding is life! What are your hobbies?

    Hello everyone, I was wondering what all you Merfolk do for hobbies, weather itís to have fun relax or just do something different. Obviously mermaiding is life and love. But what else brings you joy?

    For me I love to read! Sometimes I write storyís, and have recently developed a fascination with wood working and drone flying !! My drone is a dji spark and takes amazing photos! And wood working is a lot of fun to make stuff with your hands it turns out beautiful choseing your wood and stains and everything Is so much fun !!! And itís something I have started with my parents who are aging so that we have something to do fun together to make awesome memoryís while we still can !!!

    Well, aside from mermaiding, my hobbies are a strange combination: Freediving (of course ), scuba diving, writing (did the NaNoWriMo in 2017 and 2018), computing (especially on the Raspberry Pi), electronics, ham radio (yes, I have a callsign and therefore am a kind of certified nerd ), woodworking, kayaking, video making and editing, especially underwater videos, music (both listening and playing), just to point out the most important ones.

    To sum it up, everything water-related, electronics, reading, writing and music.

    Nothing too fancy, just what is necessary. Did two low tables for my sofa, a wooden deck in the garden, and my next big project is a raised bed for my daughter with a playing area. My wife did the design, I just do the actual woodwork.

    I like to play guitar, ukulele, sing and write songs as well as write stories (I am almost finished with a novel, eek!). I also keep freshwater fish and soon saltwater and I occasionally painting and crafting. I also enjoy swimming when I can in the summer.

    Wow! That are quite a lot of hobbies, and a really broad area. Cool! And for the language: Viel Erfolg! Es ist nicht so schwierig, wie es immer erzšhlt wird.

    I dream of a day when they may rise above the billows to drag down in their reeking talons the remnants of puny, war-exhausted mankind --of a day when the land shall sink, and the dark ocean floor shall ascend amidst universal pandemonium.

    I have a ton of hobbies I work on, sculpting, sewing, rerooting barbie dolls. I'm dabbling in quilting, repainting dolls, tail making...
    Right now my main projects are rerooting 4 doll heads, making my sequin tail prototype and sculpting a mermaid fluke and a blended waist for when i'm ready to upgrade my sequin tail into a sequin/silicone hybrid tail!

    My main hobby is art! I have an Instagram for it (@red.lion.art) and I've been drawing practice my whole life, but I only bothered to take it seriously in the last couple of years. I don't draw merfolk as much as I should to be honest - they do pop up from time to time though! I do commissions from time to time too, whenever I can get them, so that's fun too


    I cosplay too, though I'm not the best at it. As you can see, I take it VERY seriously lmao

    I got a lot of hobbies, though I'm not particularly good at any of them. (except for the wildlife photography) Mostly drawing and writing, I do some sewing on and off. When it gets warmer I can finally get back to bodyboarding. I'd like to take surfing lessons in the spring or summer.

    Danny, I really like your art! Lot of variety in style.
