I love mermaids and I love league of legends. Naturally my preferred champion is Nami because ya know...mermaids. I always wanted a silicone mermaid tail so when Nami's new skin came out in May I had to do it. It was a great learning experience and I cannot wait to make more tails in the future. For my first silicone tail it turned out pretty good but I know of a lot spots that need some improvement in the future. I still needed to finish the armor, staff, find water proof body paint, and an amazing underwater photographer (please send suggests if you know anyone!!) Enjoy the pictures and video of me swimming! <3

For a first tail, that's amazing. All those different materials to master, wow. The picture don't reveal imperfections.
Your swimming is graceful underwater, I think a lot of people would have a double look when you swam by!
How long did it take you?

Thank you!!! I spent a good year of researching and saving up for the tail before I started making it. I think that was my savior because I manged to complete the tail in about 4 weeks. I had help from my amazing cousin and friend though for the heavy lifting, tedious scale making, and clamping the tail together. :D
