Custom of the Week: Nerida the Water Lilly Merpony

Happy Monday, Aledan Merfolk! We’re officially in the warm summer months here on the SC coast, so you can expect CotW to show up on Mondays when I’m busy at the pool or beach (and by “busy” I mean “doing nothing at all”). We’re still on the merpony kick around here because a) merponies are the best, and b) do you need a b? Fine: b) I’m still in the editing trenches of StO, so I’m surrounding myself with mer-anythings to keep my spirits up ;) Bring on the mer-things! Mer-rabbits! Mer-puppies! Mer-cows! (Oh, wait, those are called manatees…)

Her tail! I adore it! And she’s just a baby merpony <3

Custom of the Week: Aquamira the Merpony

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! I’m sure it’s no surprise by now that I’m a big fan of mermaids (the name of the blog is Mermaids and Margaritas, after all), and in an effort to get myself back to working on Speak the Ocean regularly after life threw me a bunch of jellyfish (the ocean’s equivalent of lemons), we’re going to have a couple weeks of merponies on the blog! First up is this lovely blue hippocampus, Aquamira:

I love how sassy she looks! And the re-posed front feet are awesome.

Custom of the Week: Melusine the (sort of) Merpony

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! I’m sure it’s no secret at this point that my favorite custom ponies are ocean-themed, so when I saw today’s custom with her absolutely stunning mer-dress I just knew I had to feature her. As the customizer says, Melusine is “a beautiful woman who turns into a two-tailed mermaid in secret. Once her husband discovers what she is, she turns into a dragon and flies away.” Instead of making her a full merpony, Iris gave her a dragon design and hand-stitched a two-tailed merpony dress that she can wear to “change” into a merpony. What a clever way to show this fairytale as a custom pony!

Custom of the Week: Nebula

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! I’ve finally caught up on sleep after my crazy week, and things are back on track at the blog. To prove it, I have a gorgeous custom for you, complete with glow-in-the-dark hair! And fun fact if you’ve met Erie the mermaid: Nebula is the name of one of her dolphin guards. Which makes me love this custom even more :)

I love the paint job on this one – it’s so shimmery and gorgeous! Definitely click on the picture to see the beautiful nebula painted on the chest.

Custom of the Week: Jon Snow and Ghost, Game of Thrones

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! I’m sure it’s no secret that I love Game Of Thrones – we’ve had a couple customs based on the series, but never so detailed as today’s custom. Jon Snow, and his wolf Ghost, are two of my favorite characters in the series (both HBO and the books). I’ve read the most recent book, so I know what Jon’s fate is as far as that book goes, and can I just say: OMG!

No spoilers ;)

Wow! The details – from the clothes to the sword to Ghost – are amazing!

Custom of the Week: Ocean Treasure

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! It’s been a few weeks since we’ve had a custom pony on the blog, and it’ll be a couple more after this, so I wanted to make sure to brighten your week with this beauty. I’m sure you can tell why I love her :) And since I’m heading back to Key West for another draft of Speak The Ocean I thought she was very appropriate for this week (I’m not actually going to Key West – I wish! It’s where StO is set).

Do you see the adorable 3D starfish and manta ray? (And is the octopus also 3D? I can’t tell) Definitely click through to see close-ups of all the sea life covering her body – the details are amazing!

Custom of the Week: Nova

Happy Sunday, Aledan Merfolk! I told you on Update Thursday that I’d just finished listening to the audiobook THE MARTIAN, and I was feeling very spacey (especially since I’m getting over the flu and a lovely side-infection similar to strep throat. Whee!), so when I saw today’s custom with all those beautiful stars, I knew I just had to feature it.

I’m not usually a fan of puffy hair, but it looks like the gas clouds that birth stars! Which is why it’s so perfect there are stars in her tail.
