    Talking Genderbend: Me as a mermaid

    Hi fellow merpeople,

    I was having an interesting conversation with someone the other day. I was talking about merpeople, and they put forth the question of how I think I would look if i were a mermaid instead of a merman.

    I thought it was a fun little idea, and I decided to take my existing mersona, and modify it so I was a mermaid.



    So here it is! I love how it turned out! Funny thing is, I think I like it more than my existing mersona!
    My merman mersona doesn't really have a lot going on, but this one is just a lot more interesting. Mermaids just have a bit more accesories.
    Plus, I think I make a really cute mermaid.

    I think that if I was offered to become a merperson, but only a mermaid, I'd actually consider it. I think it would be fun to embrace some of the more girly aspects of being a mermaid. I'd get to swim gracefully through the water with my long hair flowing behind me, wearing a cute little aqua top.
    Although blue is my favorite color, I think I'd like to have a more vibrant tail as a mermaid. I'm also thinking about going back and giving myself a more flowery looking fin.

    This of course, is just a cartoon representing me, but I think with some adjustments, I could make a good mermaid in a realistic look. I feel like I already have slightly feminine features. I'm often told that I could pass for someone in junior high. I also can't grow facial hair to save my life.

    All in all, this was a fun little experiment. I'm just kind of bummed that my normal mersona feels so bland in comparison.

    Is this a weird post?
    It feels like a weird post.

    I don't really understand why you can't have all those things as a merman. Mermen can have vibrant tails and accessories. Your Merman picture is already wearing a top, who is to say it can't be whatever aqua top you want. And plenty of men have long hair. And I would argue that all merpeople swim gracefully, that is not just a female trait.

    Oh, I'm not saying that mermen can't have that, not at all. I just think that my merman self fits better with a blue tail and such.

    But I really like this picture. Like I said, I think I like this one more

    I think that maybe I just kind of look cute as a mermaid.

    Then go, buy a wig and a red tail skin and a short top and you can look how you prefer.

    Oh.

    I hadn't really thought about this in real life. I'm comfortable with my gender, but I do think it would be cool to be a mermaid, or just a girl

    I'm one of those mermen with long hair and a blue tail. There are lots of ways to make your mersona stand out more! Add a trident or arm fins or jewelry related to the sea. Maybe some stripes on your tail....

    I dunno, I guess being honest, I like the mermaid depiction of me more than the merman one ^^ - It's not just the added little traits.

    I think I just look really adorable in my aqua top, long hair and red tail.

    I'm thinking about giving myself a more flowery fin. What do y'all think?
    Also, I named my mermaid self Cori, a shortened version of the Spanish word for current.

    I touched it up a bit, now it looks more like my updated mersona.

    I still really like this one - I'm not sure which one I prefer. But I've been surprised how cute of a girl I make.
    I think that if I was offered the opportunity to become a mermaid rather than a merman, I think I'd actually take it

    I named my mermaid self Cori, and I really like how the name sounds on me. On another site, where I posted this picture, some other users have taken to calling me Cori, and I actually kind of like it.
