    My Mermaid Parties Tail!! (Pic heavy)

    Okay, so I know it hasn't even arrived yet, but I am so anxious to share the pics that I do have so far! It looks absolutely amazing! As soon as it arrives, I will definitely be posting more pics!!! I will also be posting a review in the appropriate section. While production took a little longer than originally stated, Stevi experienced some issues with her monofins and was constantly in touch with me throughout the ENTIRE process. I saw my tail go from a white neoprene cutout to a pink latex base, then onto the fully painted tail ... The process was incredible! I will FOR SURE order from Stevi again, and I whole heartedly recommend her to others!


    I also decided on my mermaid name -- I am going to be Mermaid Misu -- Misu is Native American for "ripples in the water" -- which I am going to cause!

    Stevie and I both worked on it. The basic design was a combination of my favorite tails, and the color is based from my favorite koi coloration (kumonryu). The dorsal is actually made from the material that a lot of mers use as fringe on the bottom of their tail - and it worked really well for a dorsal! I am super happy with the end result, and can't wait for it to arrive!

    Wow I love the paintjob on it!
    Looks very natural :')
    Those little fins are awesome looking, too! Whatever you used works great!

    Can't wait to see pics of you wearing it :'D

    The coloring is nice! I like that you chose a different koi pattern from the usual white with red orange splotches.

    Also I like the vinyl for the additional fins. Looks very koi <3

    So much love!! Especially the little extra fins, they're so cute! Stevi did an amazing job, as usual. You'll have to be sure to tell us how the paint holds up on that vinyl, since so many people love it for their tails (myself included).

    @Prince Calypso -- Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference. If you haven't seen it, you should definitely watch it at least 100 times.
