What types of tails do you sell?
I make fabric tails, hybrid tails (fabric body and silicone fins), basic silicone tails (less detailed, lighter, budget friendly silicone tail) and full silicone tails. (Solid silicone, movie quality, most realistic)
How do I choose my size?
Each tail is custom made to fit you! I send a measurements chart and instructions for an optional duct tape body double and make the tail to match those measurements.
Can tails be used for swimming
Only if you are a strong swimmer who is tail ready! The tails I make are specifically made for use in water and only made using skin safe, animal safe, and water safe materials BUT even with a safely made tail, you can still get hurt if you aren’t a strong enough swimmer to handle a tail.

Do monofins come inside the tails?
Yes! In order to safely swim in a mermaid tail you need a proper monofin inside! Monofins are permanently built into all silicone flukes. I use professionally made monofins from finis and body glove (reliable swim equipment manufacturers)
Do you offer rush orders?
Unfortunately I cannot offer rush orders at this time. Handmade art takes time to make properly and rushing makes mistakes and imperfections more likely to occur.
How much is shipping
US Shipping is typically $30-$100 depending on the weight and size of the tail. International shipping is calculated differently but I would estimate $100-$200 not including any import fees.
What is your cancelation policy?
I am only able to cancel an order if I have not ordered materials yet or started construction of the tail. I am not able to offer refunds on custom made items.
Do you offer payment plans?
I do offer payment plans. I am able to offer 3 month or 6 month payment plans allowing you to pay on the total as much as you like as often as you like for the selected time frame.
