Thread: Hello, from a soon-to-be landlocked mermaid!

  1. #1

    Hello, from a soon-to-be landlocked mermaid!

    Hello, my "real" name is Bridget!

    I live in northern Indiana, but attend college in Ohio. Although I'm probably transferring to Nebraska very soon, which is farther from the Great Lakes than I have ever been (and I admit that makes me pretty sad!)

    Although I have lots of experience with and love for the water - I grew up on the shores of Michigan, swim competitively, and work as a lifeguard/swim coach - I am very, very new to the world of mermaiding. But I have always loved mermaids and I have wanted a tail since I was probably 6. Well, now I'm 19 and I own my first fabric tail! I'm very excited about it! I hope to save up for a Sirenalia silicone someday.

    I'm looking forward to meeting you all!

    Welcome! I really like your mermaid name! It's awesome that you swim competitively.

    Aw, thank you!! <3

    I really like your tail, by the way. The fluke shape is quite unique and the color is really nice! I feel like red stands out

    Thanks!! I also like the red color, it's my favorite mermaid color! The tail is from Mermaid Kat Shop btw.

    If I ever order a silicone tail the color will also be deep red!

    I know where that is! I went to Case for undergrad, and my parents live in Parma. I moved to Maryland to go to grad school though.

    Landlocked. I've never heard that term before, but it sounds appropriate for the desire to swim but nowhere to do so.
