This would be so cool. Would you guys have any interest in being in the parade? You guys could even have a banner or a flag or something!

Firegypsy was in the parade last year with her black and red tail, I think. I'd love to be in the parade but I'm not sure if I'll still be in the area around that time.

Look out for this tail that I made. Firegypsy will be wearing it!

Wow Jesse, that tail looks great!

06-10-2012, 03:05 AM
Sweet jesus!
That tail is gorgeous!
You really have outdone yourself @___@
How much did it cost in total with all those fins?? O:

How easy is it to sit in? I mean, will the dorsal just go to the side, or something?

06-10-2012, 09:24 AM
Spindrift, I was thinking the SAME thing.

When I designed my orca tail, I wanted some serious fin action like this one.

This is amazing. Like litterally, hands down, one of the most impressive things I've e ver seen. I wish I could go to that meetup. D:

The dorsal fin is soft enough to sit on, but rigid enough to stand on it's own. As you can see in the photo, all but the first spine of the dorsal fin is standing under it's own support.

Ok, what's the plan? Where meet, what time?

Oh I wish I had seen this last month. I went to the parade all by myself... Maybe next year.
Merman Jessie, I did see your tail. It moved so beautifully in the water(I had a front row seat at the ball). You should be very proud.
