Click for videos below! The pool was way to small, but it was a lot of fun none the less.

<3 Thank you! *blush* I did find however that I didn't quite center the front pectoral fins. So they're a little bit off to the side. I can't wait until I can swim with the top I made as well. I'm working on deconstructing an old swim suit where the bottom half fits well still, but the top half's elastic is so stretched that the straps just slide off. So instead of paying more money to get a bikini bottom to wear under my tail, I'm making my own ^__^.

Yeah it was my mother in law's pool. I think dimensions are around 14 feet around by 3 feet deep. Its one of those intex popup round pools with the inflated ring.

Thanks Goldie! It was a ton of fun, even if it was a super small area clogged up with 2 kids and another adult who is about the same length as me in a tail. (I'm about 7 foot tall in tail and he's 6'2 tall)

Now, please, please, pleeeeeeeeeeeeease don't take this the wrong way.

First thing I thought when I saw the spikey and the green in the video was: "REPTAR!" XD

I loooooooooooved the Rugrats and this reminded me of Reptar, even though he's slightly different coloured. >> SHUSH, don't kill my inner kid. <3

Great job, nonetheless! ^_^ Bravo!
