Thread: Baby Mermaid

    Baby Mermaid

    Hello merfriends!
    I discovered the mermaid community when I saw a video on YouTube of a mermaid convention, and immediately took a liking to it.
    Everyone looked like they were having so much fun, and it seemed like everyone was so nice to each other! I had a desire to be part of the family after I watched the masses of merpeople engaging so happily and enjoying themselves so much.

    ..This was a week ago. And I've already learned so much in such a little amount of time. To think I didn't know mermaiding existed before Wednesday the 8th!
    Just today, Thursday 16th, two days before my birthday, I learned that one of my friends also has a wish to one day own a mermaid tail, and to swim in it.

    I see the videos of the merfolk swimming, and I can imagine, and almost feel myself swimming in the water with a tail of my own. I have two favorite ways of swimming: the dolphin kick, and doggy paddling. So, while I can say I'm not an experienced swimmer, I can also say that I think I will do well with a monofin, and hopefully a full tail.

    My first, lovely, talented, main mermaid role-model is none other than @nerdmaidfaith. I discovered and loved her right away when I watched her video of receiving her silicone tail. Watching her videos, I can see how much she enjoys this, and I can feel her passion and love through this handheld device of mine, and maybe, hopefully, some day I will meet her. Maybe by then I would have my own tail, and I could ask her if we could swim together, just once, and I'd be happy. Whenever I will think of mermaiding, I will think of her, and smile. This is a thank you, NerdMaidFaith, for showing me this amazing hobby, community, and life.

    At that, I will end, but know that one of your Indiana mermaids is right here, a newbie, but a friend. Love ya! Swimming goodbye!

    If you're looking for a nice, cheap, yet good tail to start out with, Fin Fun is a great choice. Their tails start at around $50, but unlike some bad cheaper brands, have an emergency release you can use if you start having trouble staying afloat.
    Their fabric tails are pretty nice looking too.

    I hope you have a fun time getting into tail-swimming!

    If you want to start without being in a full tail, I'm not sure if the Luna by Finis might be a better first try..I am partial to it, but not being a strong swimmer myself I love it.
