More like "Oh noez americans can't even notice the difference between a siren and a mermaid"
Tarapotamus's avatar
well technically a Siren *is* a mermaid, its just that a mermaid is not always a siren.

Siren in Final Fantasy VIII is what a siren would look like somehow.

Wow did you make the belt and harp yourself? Is it from a mold?
Tarapotamus's avatar
Yes and no. The harp was a board of pine that I made a pattern for, sawed out and carved and sanded by hand for hours to get it right XD Then it was stained and the handle wrapped in gold pearlized vinyl.

The Belt is 100% leather, "painted" with rub'n'buff and then I did black wash in layers for the weathering. The blue gem on the belt is a custom resin molded gem that I made.
