Thread: NC Mermania 2018 official thread

  1. #61
    Speaking of vending: How many people would be interested in chainmaille/scale maille items for purchase? I wore the bronze and gold scale maille armor at the last Mermainia. My husband makes it, and jewelry as well. I am trying to convince him to vend next year and I was wondering if this is something people would be interested in? I can post pics of my armor, and links to his facebook page if anyone is interested in seeing his work. Thanks, and I can't wait to see everyone!

    I won't be able to go, but I have been wondering why more people didn't use the anodized aluminum scale maille. It seems to me like the perfect material, but then, I also do chainmaille.

    How do merfolk who are from out of town and flying in usually get there from the air port? Dose everyone just usually take a taxi? I am 24 so not quite old enough to rent a car. Also all of you who fly with your tail how do you do it?

    I really hope I can save up the money to go! I'd love to meet other mers!

    I know at others cons I've gone to there's typically airport busses that go from the air port to all the major hotels but you could always uber

    I'm in the same boat as you. I'm bringing few other girls and we are all rooming together, hopefully at the closest hotel. If saving money is an issue, we might have room in the hotel?

    Really should not be a problem. Renting a car would be rather pointless anyway, as everything is close together.

    Plane Tix aren't all that bad, esp. if you can get them far enough in advance and shop around online.

    The kicker is the Check Luggage fee - and if you have a Tail, you're checking at least one bag.

    Some people will rent cars like I did and we can car pool. I think once everything is figured out more threads will appear looking for room and car sharing.

    So so when you fly with a tail you check it? I wish I had my tail and could see if it fit in a suit case.

    It's just an idea but in the past some airlines use to have a promo with the UPS Stores where you can get half off shipping to the location you are flying to by showing proof of the plane ticket. With everyone having tails, I wonder if it would be worth anyone wild to talk to a shipping store and see if they will allow a bulk rate to make things cheaper for all of us. That way we get a discounted rate on sending our tail and not have to worry about how to bring our tails onto a plane. It's just an idea.
    When you make the impossible become possible, that when the magic happens!

    Fabric tails go into suitcases. No, I mean the big silicone tails - those are NOT carry-on.
