Thread: Aysun's Midnight Moonstone Tail by Pearlie Mae

  1. #21
    I have another update on my end!

    Here is the sketch I have for my top:



    I love Pearlie's idea of the background being dark and sparkly like a night sky. (The dots approximate stars. I don't actually want a polka-dot top)
    Perhaps the crescents would be moonstone-y?

    Then the center is a rune that represents water.
    It also symbolizes emotions, fears, the unconscious mind, and stabilizing mental or emotional disorders.

    I am not sure what color (s) I want that to be or what to do about straps.

    In addition, I am still considering different extra fins. (Please do weigh in on this. I would love your opinions and/or experience)

    The four options I am considering are:
    (Feel free to correct me on my terminology)

    1) Pelvic fins
    Pro: they look cute
    Cons: they sort of seem like they would interfere with handholds when it comes to putting on your tail.
    Unless you line them up just right they are noticeably in the wrong place and that would drive me insane. Literally. It would be an issue at the lagoon I perform in when we are running short on time and practically have to through our tails on and go.

    2) Hip fins
    Pro: Added detail and pleasant flowyness while swimming.
    Cons: lining them up, and they might look... odd during dry sets

    3) Ankle fins
    Pro: extra detail
    Con: messes with hand hold? I am mostly digging this one

    4) Heel fins
    Pro: helps disguise heels!
    Con: would be stood on or damaged while putting the tail on? Especially with dry or shallow gigs.

    Which combo would you suggest?

    I agree with your assessment, I think. My pelvic fins are invariably crooked when I pull my tail on, and I can adjust them only because my tail is a bit too big. Hip fins are less likely to look weird if they're a little out of place, IMO. Ankle fins aren't super common, so I'd love to see those! Heel fins can look great, but depending on shape and size I find they can draw attention to the heel area rather than disguising it. You shouldn't be standing on that area of your tail anyway, though, so they shouldn't be damaged more than any other fin

    Are you moving, Aysun?

    I've had your tail (and yours, Melaina) simmering in my brains while I was prepping for Merfest. Now that it's over and I am mostly recovered, my attentions are ALL YOURS!

    We should be moving ahead very quickly from this point, and I have to say I am very excited to get sculpting on these awesome flukes! I was so inspired by seeing so many different tails up close and personally, and the added bonus of having Robert Short as an advisor makes me very happy to buckle down to business! LET'S DO THIS!!!

    Well. Yes and no.
    I make my living working at Renaissance Festivals across the country. Since I am gone for the better part of 10 months out of the year, I needed to tidy my room and get things stored securely instead of just scattered everywhere.
    It will still be my room, just organized and most knicknacks and things boxed.

    The only things not put away are things on the bookself, a few display pieces, and my bedding.

    I am currently working towards a nacho break.

    And WOOHOO!
    I am sososo excited.

    (Did my tape dummy ever make it?)

    Yes! I'm sorry I forgot to tell you! I am stuffing the mannequins this weekend (I hate saying 'dummies', sounds mean!) and will be hanging them in the studio to start loading them up with scales as they are cast!

    Hardcore Ren! Awesome! Do you do the one in Sterling Forest, NY?

    Tuxedo?
    Indeedy. I did that one for the first time this last season. (Aug/Sept)

    It amuses me that there is the New York Renaissance Faire in Sterling Forst

    And then there is the Sterling Faire upstate.

    Anywho, I was a magician's assistant:



    And between shows "worked" at the pottery shop around the corner.

    I've been many different ones. I had a show out there for four years (2001-2004) called Wine, Women and Song. I was in the Queen's Men group when they started the themed weekends. My last two years I was in the Feast Hall as Frilly Bordello

    Hey, Pearlie?
    Silly question, but how opaque scales are the scales/the over all tail?

    I ask because I need to plan my underthings accordingly.

    Do I just need to plan on a nude panty?

    (I have gotten away with blue, black, and white under my other tail. Barely got away with red, but my boss told me not to do it again, just in case.)

    It will be completely opaque! You can wear tiger stripes under it, if you want!

    Aghhhhh.......you got to work with Arsene!!!!!!! He's my all time favorite ren faire performer!!

    Sherille: I heard at the TRF from ye odd duck that one of the bordello sisters has commissioned an owl statuette in their costume. Was that you or fancy? My sister loves that store and has a penguin in her fairy costume.
