hey guys!!! i just found some super cool sites. they’re live webcams of different places, and i bet a lot of you otherkin out there would really dig them!! there’s sound on most of them, so be careful of that.
*pops head in* uh so my mother always insisted that she was a mermaid in her past life, and whenever we went to the beach [keep in mind I was seven, so I was scared] she said that the ocean and its creatures are our friends because she was once a mermaid.
As I grew older, I shook it off as a mere fascination with mermaids, but as I learned more and more about otherkin, I tried not to completely rule out the idea that she was serious. Recently she was hanging out with her friends and I overhear them refer to her being a mermaid. Later i talked to her about it, yatayatayata long story short my mother is Mermaidkin.
My mother is almost 50 years old, a fully functioning adult who is a well respected nurse, and the backbone of our family. Otherkin isn’t a community of ‘delusional and attention-seeking teens’. It’s not a 'fad.’
I just want to have my own little palace place where I can swim as I please, freely. If I want to go to the surface, I can just hang around without worrying about anyone potentially spotting me. I could just float under a tiny waterfall and hum little tunes…
just a few merkin/ mermenkin/ mermaidkin mermaid tail how too!
now this video does show
how to make tails of young mers like in the picture but good if you want to
make a tail out of accessible things! it does say $25 to make this but
most things she got were on sale and she didn’t need to buy much for the little
cuties. Also at some point a saw is used so if you wish to make this and
are not skilled using power tools ask someone whom does. They also do something
called surging which i have no idea what that is.
I can't stop laughing whenever anyone tags themselves as 'merkin'. Congratulations, you are a proud pubic wig. 'Mermaidkin' or 'merpersonkin' or 'mermankin' are fine, or 'nixkin' 'nixiekin' for freshwater/river spirited people. Otherkin have a hard enough time being taken seriously without mistakenly labelling themselves after a pubic wig.
