An appreciation thread for mermaid cosplayers
Anyone here own any tails?
>>10651608I had one back in like 2015 /2016 that I commissioned off etsy, just basic lycra. I kind of miss the mermaid trend, I had a lot of fun with it. Took my tail overseas on vacation and tourists loved taking pictures with me. Redpill me on the mermaid community, should I get back in to it?
Sorry for the self post but this is my tail
>>10651694why even mention it is a self post, just post and go
>>10651669It still seems to be growing strong, and people might be more hype for this kind of thing after a year of staying inside
>>10651694Cool tail! Is it hard to get in that thing/ can you waddle in it?
>>10651794This one is making me nostalgic.
>>10651794sometimes I go to archived versions of the old foxmoon site for a nostalgia hit, it makes me kinda miss back when homemade spandex tails were the fanciest tails out there other than actual movie props
Merman okay too?
>>10652956Moar liek a...>Mermutt
>>10651799It’s super easy to get on but I definitely wouldn’t waddle in it, that’s really bad for the scuba nit
>>10652956I've always been into fantasy and mythology and would probably really enjoy swimming in a tail, but I know it'd look really weird as a guy unless I was in a group with other mermaids.Plus any decent tail for a dude is going to cost upwards of $250, and that's a lot for something I don't even think I'd have the courage to wear in public.
>>10653868Any decent tail in general is gonna cost at least that much
>>10653868Get yourself the cheapest basic bitch tail anon. I also wanted back in the day to do a silicone tail, but bought the cheapest swimmable one and don't regret a bit: they are still fun and they give the illusion real good when you are underwater. Also i've learned what my tastes in tails are, what colours and paterns work for me and what i like the most. Would still make a silicone tail, but i dont regret a bit buying the cheapest oneAlso choose duller colours (dolphin, whale...) or use wigs+makeup. And remember to shave your body and work out. Mermaiding is an wonderful workout per se
>>10653868Got the one on the pic for like $280 and it was like the last stock of fabric tails they were making.The only ones they make now are $1500-3000 minimum now.
>>10653879>choose duller colours (dolphin, whale...)I could see myself in literally any kind of tail but I feel like I'd like something kind of aquatic the most. I actually bought the green merman fish scale leggings from cape cali (pic rel from their site) and they're great, some of my favorite workout clothes.But even if I took the plunge and bought a tail there wouldn't be anyone to swim with and make it less awkward.
mernetwork.com if you are US based. They have links for all the pods (groups).I started swimming at my local pond alone. Just make sure you are swimming in a depth no more than your chest height. Otherwise i would advise NOT to swim alone in any circunstance.About peoples attention itself, youll get used to it. Just be friendly and everything gonna go all right. But ffs, shave yourself and swim as much as possible to work out. I also advise a wig to not screw up your hair in the long run, be it with the pools chlorine, the sea salt or the straight up residues from untreated fresh water.
>>10651608Yep, a Magictails fabric one and a Finfolk 1st gen mythic.
>>10651608I have a finfolk fabric one
Technically counts, right?
Also technically counts.
i wanna be a Buff merman
Hollywood theatrical costume.
>>10654877I really like this one.Shame about the man face.
Women are so vain that they're willing to sacrifice their ability to even fucking walk if it means getting attention.
>>10655333Its not just a woman thing.I'm a dude and I like merfolk too.
*swims out to rescue thread from drowning*
>>10655333Sick burn scrote.
Mermaids are love
>>10662599but how do they get around? do they just get wheelchaired everywhere then dumped in a pool?
>>10662774You put on the tail next to the pool retard.
Imagine the smell
>>10651602this board is very strange but i want to fuck the mermaids. someone gib mermaid gf?that is all.
