    I think doing a mock up first is a great idea! Lots of people do mock ups before they work on expensive costuming material.

    ok after alot of procrastinating i finally finished the practice tail (and a top but its still curing) i dont have a monofin for this tail so i used smurf skin but it floats so sadly i cant swim very well in it here are some pics ( and i will post how to make the top in another post)

    I figured it would be a good idea but I still pretty sad that a day of working on the fin failed because 2 layers of smurf skin floats I will post a video of me swimming in it because it looks funny
