Deviant Artist daekazu drew this mermaid on his deviant art, and I think she’s just great! So that was 2016’s MerMonday’s everyone. I mentioned video game characters with transformations such as Shantae, kit bashed custom MLP mermaids, Tuna fish selling mermaids, the Demi Lovato mermaid fan art controversy, my run in with a mermaid/cosplayer at DeltaH convention, the rule 63 mermaid Flounder fan art that Kitty Hawk made for me, some of Zoe Crockett’s mermaid art, and even tasted some mermaid related beer with some friends.. not to mention some of the other mermaid related posts from this year.
All and all, this has been a great year for mermaids. As far as movies go, Hail Cesar! and The Nice Guys both had mermaid performers in it, and the video game Shantae: Half Genie Hero has a mermaid transformation while both Xbox One/PS4 re-releases of Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off The Record have a mermaid performer in them… that’s not too shabby when most years the % of mermaids in video games is 0%, right? RIGHT?
So see, 2016 isn’t quite that bad… right? Happy Mer Mondays everyone!
