Hey, my name's Nicole. I'm 18 years old and I hail from Michigan. I live in a city on the bay of Lake Huron, which is where it get's it's name from, Bay City. To say I grew up around water is an understatement. My county was literally founded on a large river running through the area and is pretty much the center of our little world. I have only just recently found out about mermaiding, even though I've always loved mermaids, and I can't believe I never thought of making a tail! I'm going to make a fabric tail for my Birthday (in February), but I hope in the future I'll be able to make one of neoprene/ALEX latex. I'm also very interested in history of all sorts, as well as photography. I don't really know what else I can say about myself so... Thanks for reading!

Merry Christmas!
Your story sounds a lot like mine:) I went mermaiding for the first time on my bday also- was fantastic. My friend isn't into the mermaiding stuff but she liked trying my monofin and was cool with making sure I didn't drown or whatever. Will be looking forward to seeing more of you on the boards.

Thanks for the welcomes, everyone! :D
@Sirena: I'm not really quite sure. I think for my fabric tail I'm going to go with a dark red... What part of Michigan are you from?
