    New here :}

    Hello all, I am interested in mermaiding, I'm here to lurk and learn, I will probably buy a fabric tail sometime to try it out, but I'd love to do something with it in the future. For fun! My mersona's name is Myuna, I have had a love for mermaids for as long as I can remember. I'm a big fan of fantasy in general, but mermaids have always been my number 1, I'm also a fan of Octomaids. I always dreamed of it from afar but I'm so jealous of people who get to put on their tails and live their dreams and I think I'm ready to do it as well. Excited to soak up info and hopefully make some new friends. Even if I don't make anything physical of it, having an area where I can geek out about mermaids for a little bit with likeminded people is a plus in my book. Happy Swimming!

    welcome!
    unusual types of mers are always interesting. I remember someone planning an octopus tail years ago, we even discussed how to swim in it to make it look believable (make a bunch of fake legs at the hips, have your legs in the midst, and then swim scissorkick), but I don't think it ever got made.
    It would be very cool to see someone swim in something like that.

    It would be super interesting, and I imagine very heavy hahaha. I also think some really well executed frog kicks could be part of the mix. Iíd be interested in seeing what could be imagined into reality. 😊

    ah yes, frog kicks would do nicely if done right, and if all the fake legs would move with it. That's actually what I meant^^

    if the costume were made from fabric, I don't think it would have to be heavy, the fake legs would be like trailers. Might create some drag of course, but not heavy
    (at least underwater).

    I imagine if you used slow movements and allowed yourself to fall back just a little in the water before making the next forward movement it would allow for the limbs to float upward for just a moment giving the frog kick a much realistic movement with the rest of the limbs. I see it in my head but I have no idea if it would execute properly, regardless Iím now officially SUPER interested in this theory, I might have to add an octomaid to my interests, or even some kind of jellyfish folk, the fabric would probably look more natural in that regard. Fun!! Haha

    I love this idea octo-maids and jellyfolk have always been a special interest of mine

    You know, for some reason, I have never given much thought to octomaids, but the idea of creating legs and the use of a frog kick is super creative!
