Actually a blend of honey can still be classified as a show mead, as long as it is honey, water, and yeast only. Using a blend can be a very helpful way of making a show mead as using some dark honey mixed in can provide a bit more nitrogen and mineral content to help the yeast.

lol, ah, yeah, poundage. speaking of, i did ferment in a bucket, and it turned it kinda....yellowish. is this normal?
You mean like this? See attachment. All meads change color and clarity. Oh, and what it looks like in the carboy? Won't look exactly like that in the glass. It will change in a very short time, trust me on that one.
