    Oh that's fantastic that your getting a replacement. MeliPixie you'll have to record the repair if you get it off swordwhale so we can see how you repair it. I'm interested

    ahhhhhh....one would never throw away a perfectly good but damaged item (my parents were products of the Great Depression and WWII)... especially one this cool. At the very least one would hang it on the wall ... or pass it on to someone.

    ...but I actually got some sil-poxy and am going to fix the break, then expand the foot pockets (the Luna is great except WHY ARE ALL THE DAMFINS DESIGNED FOR TINKERBELLE?!?!?)(I have size 10.5 feet with lumpy arthritis) ...brainfarting about getting some silicone kitchen ware (like a potholder or the cutting mats we have at the arts and crafts store) to use to expand the foot pockets a wee bit. It's good sil-poxy practice for future problems, and if I totally goober it, I still have a nice wall hanging. I had thought about passing it on to someone, but I think I'm going to experiment...

    The top of the fin is all one piece from ankles down to the fin tips, but the bottom of the foot pockets is a short, thinish piece of silicone that could be cut and expanded without messing with any other part of the fin. Might be enough space for the lumpyfoot to be happier.

    It may become (with slight modifications) to go to for inside the Fin Fun tails (it sticks out slightly now).

    A friend has self published some books that include mermaids, and we have a mermaid theme at book events. Had a blast last weekend sticking people in mermaid tails for pics (the Luna blew on a perfectly normal size foot with the usual care). We may need an extra fin...

    You'll have to take some pics of the process if your able to fix and alter it if you could, It would be good reference material for the future x

    That sounds like it could be a great fix! I'd love to see pics of your progress as you do it. A sil-pat might be a good thing to use for the extension piece?

    Currently deciding on a color/design and saving up for my first tail!

    Cool! I will take pics.

    I seem to have a camera glued to me most of the time ... I think I burned through two sets of batteries and more than one 8gb SD card on one week trip. One card announced it was full at the top of the Assateague Island Lighthouse... after waiting in line to climb up there. You shoulda' seen me peering at the teeny screen trying to figure out what I could delete.
