That is so awesome! I'm so envious of you! I've always dreamed of doing that myself, but unfortunately my life has taken other turns, and I can't hold my breath for very long haha. I remember being a kid and putting hair ties around my ankles thinking I looked like a mermaid haha. Good for you for living out your dream!
Thank you! Yes, my avatar and profile pic are both actually me :) I'm a professional mermaid, actually! I was a mermaid hobbist for 6 years and just recently went pro. I absolutely love it :D I actually run a forum for the merfolk community. My parents told me I could grow up to be anything I wanted... so I became a mermaid ;) As a lot of us pro mermaids and some tail makers say, "Obession [with mermaids] is an understatement" haha!
