Why does my mermaid look like this ?

I've used fishing line, plastic elastic string, and finally yarn. (which is what this one is made of) I can't figure out why it keeps stretching out. ? Why can't it just look normal when you hold it up. cryingscaredif you've made bead animals before pls helppp55f36a54e149667bf157a8d42f1d75da.jpg

i have a worm on a string flat charm and it does not look like this, maybe its because mine uses less beads which makes it less heavy but maybe you didnt tighten your string enough? i've never worked with any of the string you listed so im not entirely sure shrug

@Phosfate: ye they do have tooth picks in them, it helps it straighten the beads but it still droops and doesnt look like a mermaid when u hold it

Turbo/Jason's thing where you insert slit straws or toothpicks might help (visit turbobeads on YouTube and check hiss Hello Kitty charm tutorial), but I'm still learning this stitch and at the shouting @#$% YOU!!! stage.
