    When you feel totally alone, you either stay at the shore line.
    Or you dive deep into the depths of the ocean and find what you're made of.

    I larp too

    I've been a mermaid twice when I was NPC in our group, once with a pirate special and once in an elven forest where I was a guardian of the lake there.
    Now I'm a player where I'm an enhanced human with dog ears, tail and better sense of smell and better hearing.
    I just hate playing human because I'm a human my whole life and in the game all the elves are hunted to near extinction, so the DM made a special character for me

    You can larp as mermaids?? Are you actually in your tail, in the water when you do that?

    I've never participated in larping — well, not unless semi-organized quests in a detailed fantasy universe between three kids count. It's definitely on my wishlist (along with tabletop D&D), but it's not something people do where I live. Not that I know of, anyway. Still, if I ever get the chance I'd sign up in a heartbeat!

    I've played a faun too, with digitigrade legs, it got pretty heavy with all the running :P

    Here I don't have my horns yet, but this is what I looked like:

    PetLoverSpy: yes! I do get to swim around in my tail, and sing on rocks and tell riddles and stuff to the pc's. All I did was went to michigan larp player group and send a ad/ announcement that if they needed a mer for a npc I was around and a larp group's GM contacted me. So if your looking for larps to go to deary I suggest searching in fb "(your state) larp/ larp players" or go to larping.com and search your state for some. If you find some contact them and just ask if they would like a mer npc! If you need me to explain the difference between a pc and npc let me know or any info let me know!

    Azurin Luna: the one I plan on going to have fauns I think but also faerie types but I would use it for maybe a nixie, I love your costume its sick! Like wow amazing! are those wrappings on the hoof part?

    Kelby that sounds like so much fun! Unfortunately I don't live in the States — I live on a tiny island. I travel quite a bit though, so if they accept foreigners there's hope for me yet :P And an NPC in larping is a mostly static character who helps/hinders the PCs on their quest, right?

    aaaarrr, I love LARP!

    Being a mer npc, that is so awesome!
    I'm sure any high fantasy group would appreciate that.
    (Would get very cold in a non-tropical country after a while, though xD )

    I've looked a bit around here, but there are mostly low-fantasy and realistic medieval groups.
    Not to mention my preferred character (Echidna as a half-snake with a longbow) would be very awkward to play and get around outside of water lol.

    Oh that sucks! I mean living on an usland must be nice though!
    Most larps accept anyone so being out out of country doesn't really natter I think. And usually ur first larp with any group is free!

    Haha of course I got into larping right before the off season! Went to NPC to see what it was all about and now I'm working on a character for when they start up again in Feb.

    I was thinking of doing a water based cleric and I'm planning to make scaled armor hat's decorated with with sea shells. Would be fun to NPC as a mermaid once I get a tail.

    Nice to meet another Michigander, by the way, Kelby!

    Thank you
    No, it's fur all the way to the hoofs, you can see it here better. This is the rest of the suit, when I use it for fursuiting.
