I thought it would be fun to start a thread documenting all the places Thom's tails keep popping up! Ive found a few photos that dont fit with commercials etc.
But we can add everything we find :)

His tail are in so many places. Have you guys seen Disney Channel's movie based on "A Ring of Endless Light" by Madeleine L'Engle?


Some of the tails he makes aren't custom and sometimes have wrinkles. I think the one in Ring of Endless Light looked great.

Honestly if I ever get the money I really would buy a custom tail from him

I thought he didn't sell them anymore?

I thought he didn't sell them anymore?

He still sells tails (and never stopped selling tails). His website has just never had an easy way of "ordering" them. His website just says to e-mail him, and then he will work with the customer privately to make a custom/personalized tail. The custom tails are absolutely gorgeous and are tailored to the person's size, so they aren't has "baggy" as the rental tails (more "one size fits most"). Thom also will do repairs and resize and teach customers how to do basic maintenance.

I am hoping his website will soon have an easier way of ordering tails, but for now the best way is to e-mail him. :)

I honestly go "That's from Thom!" every time I see one of his tails! I've seen them in quite a few commercials and I saw it in that disney channel episode that you put a pic of (the purple tail, being carried)

Johnnie Walker "The Important Man" Commercial

found this one on tumblr, and tried to back track it as hard as I could but could find no original source. Dead ringer for a Tom tail when you look at that fluke, identical shape to the ones above in gold, same with the scales.

Disney did a promotion called "Year of A Million Dreams"

Julianne Moore is stunning as Ariel!

Not Thom's work, but Queen Latifa makes a FABULOUS Ursula!

Also, there is the Panda Express commercial:

This cool behind the scenes photo showed up in my feed

Thom is the man, in fact he was pretty much the only man making tails for TV for many years. But I have to be honest, it seems like Merbellas and Mertailor have taken it to the next level. Both of them seem to have taken alot of the easily identifiable fakeness of a mermaid tail and smoothed it out. But i'm sure without a doubt, his work inspired Raven and Eric to become who they are today.

Those are my pics from my tail he is currently working on! I need to update my thread here: http://mernetwork.com/index/showthread.php?2417-Starting-new-swimmable-urethane-tail!

Also cool to see my cell phone pics came out so nicely too hahahaha.

Thom is looking so great :)

New posts from thom, a make a wish tail in progress

I'm so glad that Thom is doing work for Make-A-Wish. He is truly one of the kindest most selfless people I have ever met. The look on his face when he sees mermaids in his tails, is the look of pure joy <3

Who is Thom where's his website and what are the costs? I've never seen anything for hime before no reviews not even in the tail buying guide...

11-08-2013, 02:27 AM
This is his current website. http://mermaidrentals.com/ He still takes orders ($2500 for Latex non-swimmable tail, $4K for swimmable urethane tail with monofin). And he also has sea shell tops for sale. For the most part he does rentals, but if people are interested in buying, they can send him a direct e-mail to order. :)

I have a urethane tail in the works, but it is taking awhile to complete because I wanted to be part of the making process (and I am busy a lot). :)
