Hey guys ! I'll be part of the team of mers featured in the tank show at Shark Con in Tampa July 11-12. You'll see others including Eden Sirene and Merman Christian ! We would love to have support and visits from the mer community. If you're in the area it's at the Florida State Fairgrounds. We would love to see you!!!

I'm always very surprised that there isn't. There seems to be so many west coast mermaids, especially in the Southern California regions... Hope something pops up. What ever happened to the World Mermaid awards? I believe that was held in Vegas but I may be wrong.

Anyways, good luck at Shark Con! I hope to see many pictures :)

Ha, I totally agree. I figure it's just a matter of time though.

Yeah, I wonder if it (a west coast mermaid con) would piggyback another Con/expo till it had enough of a following to make their own event.

How would that sort of thing work?

Well in my experience Cons or expos either piggy back on others (typically to spit costs) until they have enough of a following to rent the space on their own.
For example: For a while Adult expo and Hemp con were done at the same time, until adult con started doing well and making profit on ticket sales. Then it started to just rent the convention space on its on, and was able to fill it with booths.
I would love to start a mer con on the west cost but it would be a lot of work and we would need a few of us to really kick start it up.... (maybe a fun project for our California pod).

Oh, thanks for explaining, that makes sense. I really like that idea. It's kinda tragic that what you're describing sounds like what was attempted with the Belmont Shores Pirate Invasion, but that didn't work out. I'm still not totally clear why. I heard there was bad blood or something, and the organizers of the pirate festival didn't like mermaids encroaching on their event, but I don't know how much truth there is to the rumor.

Yeah, I don't know the details of why the pirate thing did not work out, but I am more than willing help there be some sort of expo/con thing.
