    Oh Kelpie! I love it! I think I may try a sports bra one. My girls are a weeee bit to big for shells. It would be like stuffing as bowling ball into a thimble.

    I'm all about the girlie!
    I love these plastic shells, because they are lightweight, comfortable and can be painted to match any tail!Name:  Screen Shot 2014-06-23 at 5.39.13 PM.png

    Are those the same type of plastic shells that you can buy from a costume shop? What kind of paint did you use?

    The blue/white tops are ones I made myself. The blue/gold was made for celeste. The pink/purple/white was made for Ayla

    really they have it on stock??
    awsome!!

  12. #52
    any other tips to upgrading the top???

    Our Michael's has some medium-sized lion's paws, but not big enough to use for a bra. It's worth checking your local store, though.

    I made this a few weeks ago! I originally ordered one off etsy but the netting was so thin I was afraid it would break when I had it on! And it was really uncomfortable, so I used the same shells and netting and made a new one after making it I was like "aww crap! That seaweed on the sides is going to be so itchy!" But luckily it isn't

    Look how adorable you are! I love the top - so creative!

    I saw some lily pads at the craft store, but they were huge on my little bewbies! I have a couple of art nouveau lamps whose bases look like lilypads and am going to try and make a mold of them...I like the idea of a freshwater mer!

    That turned out great, Wesley! I bought some of those lilypads at Michaels, too, and I plan to make a top from them.

    Savannah, excellent top! I envy people who can tolerate the feel of plastic plants. I'm like The Princess and the Pea; that plastic against my skin feels like 100 little hamster teeth gnawing at my flesh! I have to have fabric under every plastic plant I use.
