I really like this tail... The tail itself is lovely and full with beautiful natural coloring. In particular, I like that the attachmen...

Crafting is my day job... That is, I sit at home and make things all day. I have more fun with custom orders and commissions! Feel free to commission me ^_^

I am a performer at heart, an aspiring professional mermaid, and my biggest goal is to become a singer. In the meantime, I try to sell my wares to provide for myself and my fur-babies <3

Starseed, child of the stars.

How others have described me:
The Pink Playa Princess with dust running through her veins.
The undefineable pink thing what hails from Black Rock City.

Steampunk, Mermaids, Historical, Lolita, replicas, knitting, costuming, etc... I am a lady of many hats (literally, I love to make fulled wool hats!). I try to teach myself everything! I love learning new skills.

I love video games but don't play (I could be making things!), anime is always a win with me. I like to draw but haven't done so in years other than clothing/accessory design. I'd like to pick it back up again in my spare time, though! I used to be decent at anime-style :)

Love to write, may possibly be working on something in the near future.

I am a total DA n00b, please excuse me while I learn the ropes - I'm not trying to be rude if it seems like I am!

So I’m working on finishing up this epic Steampunk pirate hat for sale - I knitted and felt it all myself out of several kinds of brown wool yarn. I have blocked and shaped it nicely. There is a HUGE fluffy boa of natural-looking “feathery” faux fur yarn knitted and felted into the edge of the brim. I am installing a “lining band” (looks like a sweatband, but sewn completely in place) for stability. I’m going to be decorating it with lots of neat little bits and bobs and pieces of chain and awesome things.

Like I said, this hat is going to be EPIC.

According to Etsy, I should start my pricing on this around $200.

Is this an acceptable price to pay for a truly one-of-a-kind costume piece? I’m not used to making such big-ticket items, but I don’t want to feel like I’m underpaying myself for all the work I put into this hat - I initially made it almost 3 years ago, and waited to finish it until I had a nice collection of decorations for it/had an established shop.

I have sold one pirate hat before, and I practically gave it away for $20. This thing was my masterpiece - I hand-crocheted and stained the lace, embroidered a custom brocade pattern onto it before felting, and I crocheted a laceweight netting to drape and sew to it (with some of my favorite glow-in-the-dark beads). I was unhappy with myself and told myself I would never let anyone take advantage of my kindness that much again - I spent SO MUCH TIME and effort making this thing and got nothing out of it (part of that $20 was used to ship it).

You're welcome - I'm enjoying your writing! Thank you as well for all the Faves on my photos! Meow :3 Do let me know if there's ever anything in particular you'd like to see!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my work in the first place and then offer some comments and feedback afterwards.

It's never a chore to add Faves with a mermaid model, I'm always glad to see photo-shoots of that kind being posted around here and try to seek them out when they are.

Also, it's heartening to know that someone who has the ambition and interest in becoming a mermaid model would be interested in reading my work on similar subjects, knowing that it's in some way appealing to them.

As for things that I'd be interested in seeing, I always think that there aren't enough mermaid photo-shoots in which the theme is transformation from a human into a mermaid, maybe the model becoming a mermaid and yet still wearing her human clothing.

Hope you don't mind me suggesting that.

I do look forward to reading more of your stories - it's been a while since I found any of the sort that both captured my attention and was intelligent enough to keep it.

I don't mind you mentioning it at all! It's actually an idea I've been playing with in my head for a while, it's something I don't see represented in very much real-life mermaid photosets. It isn't out of place for my mermaid "persona" either, so it's something I've wanted to work with anyways. My one problem is that I don't really use any photo editing programs, so I've been trying to figure out how best to stage everything to take proper photos - I'm not really sure how to go about asking someone to manipulate my images for me.
