    well if i took something like bed foam and sew it and cut it into large clam like pillow shapes i could insert a large ball or pillow the size of my body to hold the shape inside then sew it closed. then coat the shell in layers of a hard coating material so the clam holds its shape around the ball or pillow, then you could seam rip or cut the clam open so you have your separate halves, and now because the outside has been stretched and bent to fit over a round body like shape then outside of the shell will keep its form... so now you just coat the inside halves in layers.

    Perhaps it's not as hard as I feel like it is haha. I used it on a paper mache raptor head (that was a failed attempt number two, but that's irrelevant) and it FELT like it made it pretty hard. Not like rock hard or anything, but it definitely made it stiffer.

    "My giant clam won't open; I think it's trying to digest me." - Viewer commenting on the "A New Day Is Dawning" sequence of Kingdom Hearts II (it's sort of like the "Daughters of Triton" sequence)

    If I had unlimited time and/or budget, I would try to make one like one of the real-world giant clams' shells. Those are just large enough for an adult to sit inside, if one curls up. Kelphinea's idea is thus an intriguing one if the interior opening is roughly shaped for a mermaid's body in a way that the clam shell could be opened by a mertender to reveal her; it would give the impression of having been chosen/shaped as her little lair!

    Pop stars certainly are getting more flashy and proppy in the Lady Gaga-era, but I like her look here! I hope the shell doesn`t go to waste....

    Hmmm, I thought this clam shell prop from Dancing With the Stars was simple, but pretty effective

    LOL now you've seen Sebastian and Ariel do the Samba. That's a sight that can't be unseen!

    Why didn't he become a merman instead? Or her Prince?

    Dancing Crab Man is so... very weird!

    It was a fun number with a beautiful giant clam shell, but I agree; Prince Eric probably would have been more appropriate (though I can see why they made the choice they did).

    This looks to me like an inflatable shell. I didn't even know that made those. 0:

    Inflatables- what a great idea!

    I found an inflatable clam chair from a UK online shop

    If these become more common, they could be very useful and attention-grabbing for the professional mermaid community...or the private mermaid who just wants to cuddle up with her clam....

    Yeah but the thing with Aliexpress is they won't do anything if the seller is scamming you. (I ordered 3 wigs and got 0 wigs and the sure ignores any complaints) so don't do anything that looks suspicious on there

    I've had the same thing happen but I got my money back; I was under the impression that they didn't release your money to the seller until you confirm your items as arrived (or if a long enough time period elapses after they send it an you don't say anything).
