today we decided my preschool students should meet Raina the mermaid. I can't legally show you any photos with the children in it but I can show you what they did to the bath tub to get ready! And how awesome my costume looks...

Keep in mind this was shot spontaneously with the school camera... hence the nice band of sunlight across my face, lol

but yeah, that's blue food colouring and tinfoil...

I do not support the person who made my tail, they are a scam artist and you can read about it here: [link]

so cool! But yeah, apparently the Mertailor is a mass scam... Won't be getting anything from him...

well a lot of what you read about mertailor came from me and ~MerBellas He's been working pretty hard to rectify issues with people recently, but my tail was nothing like what I ordered and if it wasnt for ~MerBellas fixing it for me it wouldnt look like it does now!

Yeah, i've seen what ~MerBellas can do, and what they've said about the Mertailor. They're good.

Aww- I wanna see the look on their faces when they met her-! :shakefist: Couldn't you, like, blur out their faces...?

Wish I coulda met a real mermaid when I was younger; that woulda been epic. :cries:

Honestly, when i first saw this i thought it was a photomanipulation, it's a real collage i guess.

Omg, the tail is awesome *_* What material did you use to make it?
Reply

it's silicone! I have a stretch vinyl one too. I didn't make either though they were both custom made for me. :nod:

Great pose in the shot. Hopefully you'll inspire many children by your mermaid-ness. :D

By the way, I've noticed that your tail fin's bent just by looking at the lines on the upper left corner. Aren't you mad that your awesome tail's been minority abused?

Awesome!! The tail looks great. It would be cool to stick some random patches of scales here and there around your upper body/neck. Good stuff!!
