This is my brand new soon to be finished mermaid tail. It's made for me by :iconmerbellas: who can also be found on FB here: [link]

Most of my watchers know it has been a long journey to get to this tail. It is made of silicone and fully swimmable. If you aren't one of my watchers, I perform, educate, and volunteer as a mermaid.

Being a mermaid has really taken me places it. With my previous tails I created a literacy program where I help promote literacy to kids. I also perform and speak as an environmental educator on key topics in developmentally appropriate ways for kids.

I put in a lot of charity and pro-bono work to support the causes I do, and I am thankful to also do paid events and birthday parties as well. This has almost become my full time job!

Some of my watchers here, helped me reach this goal. They donated HUNDREDS of dollars to help me replace the first tail I bought that had far too many issues.

So, I just wanted to take a moment and really direct this to those special people who donated and say, thank you. I have been able to bring so much joy, learning, and the love of reading to so many kids in this new magical way. I have learned so much about myself, I have challenged my own short comings, and I'll soon be heading around the world with this thing.

I will always try to be the best 'mermaid me' I can be. I will try really hard to stand true to my values of inspiring kids, educating them, and nurturing their imagination.

If you aren't a regular watcher and want to check out the neat stuff I've been able to do as a mermaid, check out this link: [link]

You can also follow me on FB [link]

I am as much a part of the tail as it is if me, but while you're in a :heart: mood, please stop by my amazing tail makers DA :iconmerbellas: or FB [link]

Thank you watchers, for your love, support, sponsorship, and all that you do for me. :heart:

It looks like it was made by the MerTailor! That is how good it is! He makes tails that ae so good that they are $1,000+ but yours looks it could be $10,000! :D

I owned a tail by him and it fell apart within months sadly. This tail was made for me by :iconmerbellas: and I much prefer it.
