I'm assuming MermanJesse made this tail, I'm not sure but I got to say it's beautiful!

It's his old mertailor tail- I think it was the first tail he ever owned! It's weird, I could have sworn when I shared the link earlier it DID say mertailor in the title. He's taken really great care of it though- Jesse takes cleaning and drying his tail very seriously- he even built a custom drying unit LOL.

I actually have an idea for a drying unit. When I finish my tail, I will make the prototype for it and post it. I think it will work very well. It is molded after a dryer we have at work.

I never said that I made the tail in the listing. I just said it was "Handmade". That is true.

The stand in the above picture was made specifically for my MVD tail.

I shall also have a drying unity myself soon (though it does look very different), Jesse that tail looks beautiful what did you do to maintain it?

Rinsed it THOROUGHLY with fresh water, and hung it upside-down to dry on the stand.

Going to revise the listing to reflect that I touched up the black throughout the tail.

Merman Jesse, may I ask; how tall are you exactly? I'm just under 5'8" and I see that from waist to ankle you have the tail listed as 47". I'm 37" from waist to ankle and with the specific design that I want to do for my latex tail, the measurements seem almost perfect for the type of alterations I would need to do!

Also, I was wondering if you could possibly tell me the measurements for the knees and calves together, and the lengths from hip to knee, and knee to ankle? :-)

What a lovely tail, Jesse! I honestly think it's one of my favorites of your tails. Good luck in selling it dahling!

Only 3 hours left!

Ondine, I will get you those measurements here in a few moments.

EDIT:
The measurements.....

Hip to knee = 15 inches
Around knees = 26
Around calf = 28
knee to ankle = 15

Thank you so much, Jesse! I appreciate you taking those measurements for me. They're absolutely perfect, by the way--exactly what I need!

Now, I know the listing has ended, but would you still be open to selling it? I only have one part-time job right now (which will hopefully be changing here soon) and I'm also having to save up for a place of my own later this Summer, but if you'd be willing to work with me and we could arrange some sort of payment plan; I would be forever grateful!

Please let me know :-)
