to clarify I believe this is a past client of his selling off her tail not him.

it's not him, it's Merymeja on YouTube (I think that's it) she's been trying to sell it for a while now

If it's the real deal, it's quite a bargain considering the price!

But I'm not sure if the photos are recent.

Yep I remember seeing this tail in her videos. It was the first recreational silicone mermaid tail that I saw, actually. But I think its an Adam Martyn...

yeah, its an Adam Martyn tail. it doesn't have a monofin, it's a teeny bit damaged (if I remember correct) but it's beautiful nonetheless.

Shoot... I'm not a fan of the colors but that price is unbeatable for a silicone tail. I kinda want it. Oh wait, I have no money :)

Ah, Adam Martyn.

He could've had the world in his hands but he chose to completely fuck it all up. Which is a terrible shame, because I really liked his work.

So he's operating out of Budapest now and selling to European clients?

I thought the add said the tail is in Canada. ( country of origin)

Those pics don't look like a monofin. They look like matt's where your feet just stick in the body IMO.

I figure a collector might grab this up

The tail in and of itself is beautiful and quite the steal for the price
if it could be altered a bit i would be something i would interested in buying
but i don't think it could be re sized or repainted though i do love the color scheme ive recently changed mine up

Actually I've seen a video of the tail and it's very damaged... It lost a big piece of one fluke's corner and in the middle (where you can see the flowers) there is a big huge crack that separates the two half of the fluke.

On the body there are also some holes...
So whoever is going to buy it has to make big and important fixing.
Also the girl doesn't say exactly what type of silicone the tail is made of so it will be a sort of "I don't know where to go" in ordering the materials to fix it I think...



If you want I can post here the link of the video I've seen.



As for the seller I don't know if it's still Merymaya because the girl who is selling it is in Russia.
So I'm more convinced that it's a third hand tail (I don't know if this is the correct expression...)

Remember when we used to think he was the epitome of tailmaking? Now look at all the wonderful, and if I do say so myself, more beautiful options we have to pick from.

eBay says the item is being shipped from Moscow, Russian Federation.
The main description says that the tail was made in America, but no information at all pertaining to it being Canada!

It must be an IP thing cuz it shows up Canada no matter what device! Weird. I just thought it would end up being cheaper if it was in CAD lol

I like how she's trying to hide the damage on the fluke with flowers. XD

Can you link to the video with the damage? I remember seeing this tail years ago when it was being used in a mermaid web series

I think what's it's saying is that it was made in Canada and she's selling it from Russia. Mine says both too. And in not in Canada OR Russia lol. Maybe she made a mistake when filling it out or something idk. But I would also like to see the fluke

(add the missing part and delete the space in the URL to see the video -I had to add them because I saw it wasn't showing correctly)



also you'll find the web series on the same channel but only the second season (I don't know why she never released the first one)

I really appreciate the transparency of the seller who posted that video! Too often are mermaids ripped off by sellers.

Too bad the person trying to sell it now doesn't mention the damages :P (at least I didn't see any mention of the damages)

Yes the seller doesn't mention the high damages of the tail, the video is from the previous owner (the girl named Mermaya sold the tail to the actual seller and Mermaya uploaded the video long ago when she first sold the tail) and I found the video because I was suspicious of that flowers on the fluke so I started searching the net and at the end my suspicions where right.
