    2- If it is outdoors, and they want her in water the whole time, how about things like hypothermia? Will the water be warm?
    3- Even if it is just posing for pictures, she needs bathroom breaks, drink and probably eat something. Also time to stretch her legs.
    4- Many people don't want performers to take tips on a wedding, as it would be putting a burden on their guests.
    5- I would definitely not work for tips for 5 hours. Half hour, yes; one probably, if it was for a charity or something. More is unnaceptable.
    Oh don't get me wrong I totally understand! The event Gem and I are doing is my local fair (my family and I are on the board) and because our town has about 900 people they barely have a budget. We are working for tips, doing makeovers, selling trinkets, etc. I'm not disagreeing with what's being said at all!!

    I have done quite a few weddings but I guess since I have worked only in Thailand its not the same... I think I don't make very much compared to other mermaids because of the location I work... I get about $200 dollars for flying to another part of the country, working for 3 - 4 hours in the pool and staying over then flying back the next day ... I don't know, I feel like its a lot of work for not so much return - esp. when I have to make and repair tails all the time...
    Yougot your own style, now let it come through. And remember no matter what, you got to be you. -Sebastian

    What kinds or rates is everyone charging for kids parties? I assume out door pool, YMCA, and lake are all different. I'm just starting out so any help would be great!
