    *Waves another hello!*

    Hi!

    Posted this over on the old forum & thought I would do so here as well!

    I'm a long time mermaid lover; got my start with The Little Mermaid when i was younger which also started my long time affection for red hair. I live in Dallas, Tx (originally from Ma) with my Husband, three pugs & two cats. I have more hobbies that GOD; professional tribal belly dancer, heavily into medieval recreation with the SCA, burlesque performer, costume designer and seamstress, motorcycles (I own my own & my Hubby has one as well), equestrian... you get the point.

    Trying to raise funds to get my first tail; I'm finally cosplaying Ariel this year at DragonCon and am making myself a 'skirt tail' but I'd really love to get a swimable one. I've been dying to do a photoshoot with a mermaid tail forever now so i posted in the classified section to raise funds; here is the thread for it! Selling lots of goodies!

    Nice to meet you all & I look forward to getting to know you!

    Welcome! Some of the things you do are my dreams to learn and become, actually. Hints- wasted my fair share of fabric making something only to mess it up by tiny mistakes that didn't turn out to be so small after all (haha), and I'm waiting go get my back fixed by a chiropractor (hopefully soon!) before I can start lessons

    Gorgeous photo, by the way!

    Yes, I was Queen once & therefore am a Countess which actually you address as 'Your Excellency'. Hopefully will do another reign soon & become a Duchess & then will be called 'Grace.

    Where do you play?

    Thought I'd add a few pics & my quick little video to this thread since I have it linked in my signature!

    Since first posting I made myself a fabric tail; a green spandex one! Here is a pic of me in the pool with it:


    Here is a short video of me swimming in the pool with it!


    I also made myself a starfish hairpiece:


    Details of it:


    Currently working on the Little Mermaid costume; less than 3 weeks till it's debut!

    Thanks! Made everything in the costume pics (Including Hubby's Jack costume) myself. the shoes on my Jessica outfit have over 6,000 rhinestones which were applied one by one!

    Hello, saw your link to your introduction on another page. I love bellydance, horses, and costuming myself and am drawn to burlesque and now mermaiding. I am a long time Dragon*Con attendee and love your costumes. Needless to say it is a pleasure to meet you!

    At night I sit and dream of a cozy sandstone cave on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, of all the places in the world that I've been, it is there I wish to be...

    I'm glad I am a woman who once danced naked in the Mediterranean Sea at midnight.
