Born and raised in Massachusetts, I dont live in Boston but I do love the town though and have been there for a school trip a couple of times. My favorite baseball teams are Red Sox and Marlins and my favorite football teams are Patriots and Dolphins. Is there any other merpeople that live in New England and that live near me also?

Hey Rebekah! I'm new on this channel. I've never gone swimming before in either of my 2 tails..... I'm currently out in Cambridge, but I'm from Western Mass. The berkshires, to be a little more precise.

YAY for the Massachusetts Mini-pod. <3

Hey Rebekah :3 I live in Colorado but I adore Massachusetts. I've been there a couple times and I have to say that deep inside it's my home. I have been to Boston, Salem and surrounding areas and remember it clearly and especially the smells, scents of the stores, ocean and more :3 If you dont mind me asking which city do you live in?

Hi Vinobia. Well I was born in North Adams and I just recently moved to Adams about 3 weeks ago cause we were looking for another apartment in Adams cause it is nice and peacefull here. I am a newbie at this hole thing of being a mermaid and I dont have a tail yet and never swimmed in a tail in my hole life. I would like to try to find a mer that has a tail for her self and a tail for me to try and swim in and take pics in and videos also together to see if I am going to actually like it before I buy a tail myself. Do you or you know any mer that can do this and lives near me so we can do this? Please let me know as soon as you can if you do. I hope to hear from you soon. Thanks. :)

I used to live in Rhode Island, RIGHT on the coast. I've (sadly) been landlocked in central Florida since late 2009, though.
However, I'm moving back up to Amherst/NoHo this fall! If you're close, we should meet up at the Boston coastline some time. c:

Hi PNE-Mers! I'm Mermaid Marla! I swam at Weeki Wachee for 2 1/2 years (1969-1972)... Yes I am an OLD Mer! hahaha! Hubby and I just moved into our house in Pepperell, MA, near the Hollis, NH border. We have 1400 feet of the Nissitissit River in our backyard! Its pretty shallow in lots of places, but still good to cool off in during the summer! You can Google images of it, the first few are mine. Maybe we can have a pod gathering this summer... will have to see! I'd love to meet Pod members!

Hi SINically!

I don't know of any conventions, except the Coney Is. one, that I believe just finished. Most conventions are in the south, there is one in Tampa, FL called MerPalooza in August. I don't know if the Las Vegas event is happening this year or not.

I'm just getting back to swimming after a year hiatus, and moving to a new home. Took a while to find a new pool (it's in NH, closer to drive than my former gym in Westford) I absolutely love my new fitness center (has 3 pools) and they let me swim with fins in any of them! Perfect for mermaid exercises!

Hello Marla! Nice to meet you! YAY Hugs! I love hugs! :hug:

Oh I meant conventions in general like AnimeCon, Boston Comic Con (a convention I work for), GraniteCon, and so on. I attend a lot of the conventions in the New England area and I bring my mermaid tails and was just curious if anyone else attended them. I will be at Boston Comic Con in August with my Steampunk tail and my tail skirt. I'm also creating a brand new non-walking mermaid for GraniteCon which is in Sept. Of course I will also have my mermaid artwork with me too. ;)

Congrats on your new home and for finding a fitness center that will let you swim! That's wonderful!

Hi mermaidkatie! Haverhill! Awesome! Hello neighbor! :hug:

I attend many conventions in the New England area, not necessarily mermaid themed though. I will be at Boston Comic Con in August (a con that I work at, I run the costume contest part of the convention) and I will have both my steampunk tail and my tail skirt at that show. I will also be attending GraniteCon in Sept. where I will have a table with my mermaid artwork and I'll be showing off a new mermaid there too. You should come! It's a lot of fun and everyone is groovy cool. :D

You are both really close to me! Our house in Chelmsford is slowly being moved out of, but I'm there frequently. We moved to Pepperell, only 1/2 hour away! I joined a gym in NH and would love to bring you both! I can probably get a pass for both of you at the same time. The out door pool goes to 12 feet, and we most likely would have it to ourselves if we get there between 10 and 3pm. So far the club hasn't flinched with me using my fins (I don't own a monofin yet) but I inquired about swimming in a tail, and they didn't seem to be bothered about it. In fact they offered to rope off part of the outdoor pool for me so the kids on the diving board would only use their 1/2. Whadda say? It would be such fun. And the club has a restaurant for the munchies afterward!

This offer is also open to closeby mers in NH or MA, I just don't want you to drive too far for a swim, but you are all welcome! We can make arrangements as necessary! If more than two or three join me, I would have to make special arrangements with the club.

Mermaid Katie, LOL, you are one up on me! My tail isn't done yet, so I just swim in suit and fins. It really doesn't matter, you can bring it if you like! I'm working on another bathing suit because I didn't want to spend $50-$100 on a suit to get ruined by chlorine! I still can't find a laundry soap that removes the chlorine from fabric. So I didn't want to ruin the tail I was making either. I got distracted with the new suit, and now am going to get the tail started again. I may just make the tail with the current fins I have (they are cut like my fins from Weeki), and modify it later when I get the fin design I am experimenting with finished.

PM me with what days and times work for you! Remember the best, quietest times are between 10am and 3 PM M-F. At the moment Wednesday's are not good for me, but other days are. I'd just have to check my calendar!

I Pm'ed you Marla. Sorry for my lateness. I've been so busy but things will die down a bit for me after August 5th.

OK, here's the info I have for everyone, if you're interested in going.

On the 27th, I will be swimming around here at Liquid Planet Water Park in Candia, New Hampshire. I'm with a group called The New England Brethren of Pirates and I'm their guest mermaid. I 'think' there might be other mermaids but I'm not entirely sure. I had to make a quick mermaid tail and a swimmable monofin for this. Not my best work but it will have to do for now. I don't think the kids will mind and I do plan on making more swimmable tails when I have more time. Xp
http://www.liquidplanetwaterpark.com/

Then I will be at Boston Comic Con on August 3 & 4. On Saturday August 3rd I'll be there in my Steampunk Mermaid costume and on Sunday August 4th I'll be in my Ariel Mermaid costume, the modified hoop skirt one.
http://bostoncomiccon.com/

(I have another appearance on July 31 at Faneuil Hall in Boston, MA but I won't be appearing as a mermaid but if you want that info just in case....http://www.faneuilhallmarketplace.com/event/boston-comic-con-costume-contest/2145419124)

And on September 28th & 29th I will be at GraniteCon in Manchester, New Hampshire. On the 28th I'll be revealing a brand new mermaid creation!

Greetings, fellow Massachusetts residents! I live in Marlborough, and work in Framingham. Originally I'm from Vermont, but moved down here in about 1984. Always been near water - my family had a couple of ponds on the property, and Norwich (my hometown) is on the banks of the Connecticut River. My husband's family has a house on Cape Cod, and Marlborough is not too far from a couple of nice state parks with lakes/ponds. Of course, I always seem to be too busy to go drive to any of them to swim!

I'm starting to think of places with indoor pools to swim, once the weather and water get cooler. There is an indoor pool down in Roslindale, which on the phone at least, says they will let me swim with a monofin! An annual family membership (2 adults, 3 kids) is $50! (The MetroWest YMCA costs 3 times that, and says no monofins :( )

Hi SIN,

I'm going to try and make Sunday! Wish I had a costume to wear, would be fun to join in! All my stuff is still packed or being packed, or somewhere in the Chelmsford house, quite disorganized! I'm driving longer distances now, so I can make it drive-wise. Have to see how the head feels after my Saturday get-together in Boston with friends I haven't seen for a year! We are going to the Carousel, then a trip into the Aquarium! Should be a nice day!

Squee! I hope you can make it! If you can make it I'll be at my table #919, right down the aisle from the New England Brethern of Pirates. Unfortunately I won't be wearing the new mermaid costume on Sunday though. Sunday I'll be wearing a mermaid cross over costume so I can walk around and see the show. I try to make one day a tail day and the other a walking day. Sunday I'll be dressed up as Sailor Moon Ariel. I don't know if I should post that costume here as it's not a tail costume but I will definitely post pics of the new mermaid costume for sure. I was tempted to make an album to put my mermaid artwork in it but I'm not sure if that would be allowed here either. I'm still learning the site as best as I can with what little down time I get. Eep. :$

I feel absolutely terrible that I haven't been able to meet up with anyone this summer due to the rain and being so busy with conventions. There's just not enough time in a day to do everything I would like to do. :(

I love the Aquarium! My gosh it's been a while since I've gone there. I really need to fix that ASAP! Hrmmmm...what about a MA Mermaid Meet Up at the Aquarium some day? Weekends are easier for me. ;)

You have to be comfy! A walk around costume is much easier to deal with! I think you can make an album of any of your stuff. Not sure, but why not? If the Admins don't like it you can take it down, but I would love to see more of your work!

Oh geez, not to worry, we can still swim at the gym all Fall and Winter! If you want, the pool is open until 10pm, I think, and it's really quiet!

Oh how nice to travel to Ireland, never been there! Someday...

Nice to have another Mer in our New England pod. SIN and I are trying to get together, and I know there are some other local Mers, too. I have a membership to a great gym and pool club in Milford NH, Hampshire Hills Fitness. (two outdoor pools, and two indoor) They have all kinds of stuff going on there. I asked one time about using monofins, and my tail... they said no problem, there's even a Freeswimming club that comes in to practice sitting on the bottom, holding their breath!.

I've made the offer before to any of our pod. Just getting it co-ordinated! LOL, so all I have to do is get guest passes, and we can have a great time swimming together! I probably can arrange a special event so the pool is just available for us, with a lifeguard. I have to look into that.

Hi Echinacea!

We should all figure out how to contact each other, or start a thread here, to find out how many Mers would be interested in going. It would be great if we could get a pod together and have some fun at the Aquarium and eats nearby!

I know they just opened the center tank in July after a huge remake! I haven't been in many years either, so its about time!

We could even do a car-pool because Boston parking is notorious for being bad.

PM me and I will get you an address and phone number should you want to visit! Woo Hoo!

Viatrix, Welcome to our Mass Pod! We all could get together up at my gym in NH, they have great pools, two indoor, two outdoor (I think the outdoor one's are closed for the season now, but not sure). Swimming in monofins or tails is not a problem! WOW I am impressed there are two more Mer's close to me! Same holds true for you, just PM me if you want to get in touch!

Hi and welcome new mers! I pop in and out of here quite a bit so sometimes it takes me a while to respond but I am trying to keep on that as best as I can. :$

I attend many conventions and events and (after mooooonths of discussions) I just agreed to join a pirate group here in New England called The New England Brethren of Pirates. I've known the owner for years and appeared with his group a few times to help them out sooooo yeah it was just a matter of time that I made it official. Anyways they do many conventions and events for different charities, so I just made my busy schedule even more busier! Eep! LOL (I work on artwork & costumes and my day job is working at a comic book store.)

Marla, my work schedule changed a bit until December so weekends work best for me but I may also be able to swing a week day if needed. ;)

Thanks for the welcome! I will sadly be busy and without transportation until the semester ends but during winter break it would be neat to meet some of you (particularly my neighbors in Pepperell since you are less than 10 minutes from my home). I am also planning on going to Boston comicon this coming year so perhaps I will get the opportunity to meet some you then!

Just wanted to swing by and introduce everyone to my new pirate family, well I say new because I just now joined up with them even though I've known them for quite a while but anyways they're really great people and they do lots of awesome charities such as what Brandon (Captain Jack) mentioned.

At Boston Comic Con in August, they raised money to help one of the victims from the Boston Marathon Bombings with his medical expenses! \m/ BOSTON STRONG! \m/

So yeah here's my pirate family and if you see them at events swing by and say hi! Gotta run for now! I actually have to work on a mermaid costume for this group so they can officially announce me as a member.

*EDIT - Apparently Brandon didn't want to wait until the costume was finished so he's announced me already. Also my hubby and son want to join the group so now I have to come up with 2 more costumes for them.

FYI - My name in the group will be Nightshade Red! XD

And if anyone is interested here is their fb fan page.

I think Rose Lanai is in NYC, or close by, and Pearlie Mae is in NJ. I believe there are several mers who get together at Coney Island. Try checking the member map, that may give some more names. Welcome to MerNetwork! :)

Lanai is from the city. I'm in Orange County, and there are a few other mers further upstate as well.

anyone from NYC here?I'm relatively nearby in lower Connecticut. Sasha is in NYC but I don't know if she's still around here, per se (Come to think of it, I think I remember her actually leaving).

Hi Everyone-

New to the network and to mermaid-ing. I haven't bought a tail yet, but am planning on it soon. I am from Rockland, MA- south of Boston. I went to college in Lowell, but spend most of my time on the South Shore. Anyone close to the South Shore?

I'm in Pocasset, on the Cape, usually one weekend a month during the summer/fall. I also belong to a pool in Marlborough which has a nice outdoor pool and I am always glad to have other mers come swim with me. There is a $15 admission charge, but it is good all day, so you can leave for a bit and come back later and swim some more, if it gets too crowded.

Hi everyone. Is there any mers in western Massachusetts that lives near me and would love to be able to teach me everything that I need to know about being a professional merfairy and have a meet and great with me before summer is over?
Because I live in Adams but I'm originally from North Adams Massachusetts and me and my fiancÚ don't have a car right now to be able to go to these meet and greets and the mermaid parade in New York so that's why I haven't been able to go to any of them yet.
If you can do what I said above I can try to have some gas money for you and you will just have to let me know a head of time so that I can have the money put aside for you and be ready in time before you get here.
If you can help me out with everything that I said above please leave me a comment as soon as you can and I'm always available to chat on Facebook messenger if you wanna chat about it there also.
Update On 11/25/15
I have been talking to Susan Gardner on Facebook and we are going to try to plan a meet and great at my local YMCA in North Adams Massachusetts in the winter when it is cold because the lady there said that they allow flippers there and they don't see a problem with tails there.
I still have to call them to see if I can have the pool closed off so that it could be private and so that we can have anyone that is interested in going since they won't be able to NC-Merfest 2016 because they either don't have the money for tickets to go or hotel stay or money for the flight there and back seeing how that's how it is for me because I can't go.
My merfriend in New York named Mermaid Mandi is thinking of going if the lady at the YMCA will let us have the pool to ourselves for anyone that lives near me or is interested in going as soon as I know when it is and what time it's going to be.
If anyone is interested in going to the meet and great at my local YMCA please let me know as soon as you can below so that I can ask them if I can or not and how much do I need to have the pool to ourselves for the day so that I know how many are interested in going.
:D:):D:):D:)
