Thought I would share a video with you all as my Little Mermaid routine debuted last night! FYI I go down to 'starfish' and panties but am not nude. :D

We had a bet running to see how many people knew it was a retelling of the original non-Disney Little Mermaid story; as expected not many people knew! :p

Had a few snags; the lighting wasn't good (could hardly see the sea witch) as well as the stagehands working the water brought it up too early at the end (I was supposed to cry for a little and REALLY look dejected) but otherwise I really am happy with it. In the future I hope to build a 'real' prop rock and we want to use a bit of pyrotechnics for when the Sea Witch changes my tail to legs but the venue wouldn't allow it for this show (gorgeous vintage Hollywood theater).

P.S. That is my handsome Hubby as my Prince and my friend Jenna as my Sea Witch! :D Love them both!

Backstage right before we went on with my sexy Sea Witch. Check out the shell bits in her hair; Raven made the headpiece for me! :D

BTW random side note: sorry I haven't been around much lately. I lost my job in September and don't get to spend as much time in front of the computer (strangely enough) right now! :p

Ahhhh!! I LOVED THAT! I freaked out when 'Sail' started up, it's currently one of my favorite songs! And if first the story perfectly. You looked so sexy too! Super cute! I'm glad it all worked out well :)

I saw this on Raina's facebook! I loved it! It was super fun to watch and you (and everyone else ^.^) looked amazing :) I'm amazed you managed to shimmy out of that tail that fast!

Heh my husband would smack my hands for that; we are working on my lack of ability to 'take a compliment' and how I am always the first to point out the flaws in anything I do. :p Maybe I should delete those bits. :p

I do that a lot to... I think it is just afraid of someone thinking I don't now so I point it out

:D Thanks! I had the green sparkly panties on under the tail and put the shoes on after I got out. It's a lot easier for me to get out of the tail quickly than get into it! The shoes were the hardest part to get on and were a last minute change; I had planned to put on my ballroom dance shoes so I could actually DANCE a little more but they took me too long to buckle! Thes ones were really a lot higher than I usually do any dance moves in lol so that high kick was a little unnerving!

Better than you thought it would? Have you been thinking about it previously? ;D

Funny thing; I decided to used this song about a year ago before it was 'well known'. A few months back it started getting a lot of play on the radio and I freaked out worrying someone would use it in a routine locally before I did (it's bad form to use another performers song if it can be helped). Thankfully I was able to be the first. ;D
