    Mega Rapidash

    I will be posting a review, videos and more but I thought Id start a new thread to show my new tail. UNEDITED PHOTOS no photoshop. Some have a few instagram filters because the lighting sucked, but that blended waist is allllll real baby. Feel free to ask me questions.

    Beautiful tail, Raina!
    I just love the colors on it, and it looks great on you!

    How exactly did Raven make the blended waist? It looks amazing!
    Is it clear? It looks like theres no scales in that spot.

    That would be her trade secret

    She offered to give me a blended waist at no extra charge (reward for waiting, maybe?)!? YES YES YES! Seriously, you look just like Madison in that scene in Splash! in which she is "outed" as a mermaid! Even when you're swimming in the tail and it creases, the creases look like actual fish skin!
    Because you can be a mermaid and have an immortal soul!

    What are you doing with your other tail? Are you still going to use it, or is it completely retired, or are you giving it to someone else?

    Wow! That tail and those accessories are so unbelievable beautiful! And the waist blend is truly more than amazing. You got a really beautiful successor to old faithful Rapidash, that's for sure! Raven is definitely amazing.

    One question though: The fluke looks so flexible, is the tail fully swimmable or mainly for dry events? Or does it appear more flexible in the video than it truly is?

    The fraken tail isn't done. Old tail is done done.

    Thefluke is a foil hence the floppiness

    I have a question. Do you feet feel the same in your foil as they do in the competitor? I've noticed that the foil holds my feet in an odd angle for me. What I mean is, if you point your feet without any shoes on, they touch all the way down the side. When I wear my foil, it spreads the ankles out just a bit but keeps the toes close together and feels off to me. I'm curious if the competitor felt the same way.
    Does this make sense? lol

    I dont like the foil in terms of swimming and feel, but I will get over it because it looks and moves so damn well. For me, it's just I've only ever known a competitor and swimming with one is like having training wheels. Without one I wasnt able to give rides, go deep, or be fast. But in the foil holy carp I was flipping like you wouldnt believe, twirling, and able to get more movements out of a single breath. It really hurt the top of my feet so I'll be buying full socks as the half socks werent enough.

    I miss the power of the comeptitor but I dont miss it's giant size. I do feel the foot pockets are spread out weird in the foil.

    I really love my tail...




    the airport lost it and I just got it back. <3 <3 <3 after I do my gig this weekend I'll do up a review. Hoping to have more photos and footage to add to it.

    Hmm your blended waist looks different from mine. Like yours extends further where mine was just kind of added on top. I love the way your fluke fops over when you lay with your feet up. it looks so natural.
