AniaR, I understand that the price had to go up and she deserves for it to go up, but that doesn't change that I'm sad cuz it'll take way longer for me to save the rest. Raven does an amazing job, and I'll be super proud to get a tail once I can save it up, but I'm just saying that my plans will be very delayed.

I know just seeing one of the models wearing it kinda scared me I thought maybe I was too late cause I ordered it 8 months ago if I counted correctly

I see your point. It is your headdress. She said she would give you the price when she was done. It's not fair that you haven't gotten it yet. Even if she had forgotten it's yours, that's not really professional. That is something she needs to address for sure.

I understand the price was lowered for performance tails. I recently ordered a performance tail but she changed the price shortly after I ordered and made my payment so I am being charged the old price. I don't want to bother her with an email, I know she is very busy. I'm simply curious why she lowered the price while still taking orders because it is kind of confusing. The tail is well worth the money and I feel lucky to be getting a tail made by her but I was just wondering if anyone else was in the same boat I'm in?

Merman Arion
10-08-2013, 07:29 AM
I kinda figured since I commissioned it and she MADE it that it was kinda considered ordered :/ I dont understand why someone would make someones order and only consider it "talked about".

Don't know why there's blank emails. All my emails had a reply in them so that's odd.

I'm sorry but those are just speculations, right?
I understand Mermaid Aurora's concerns but i disagree with this attitude. Until Raven says something officially, i don't think people should make up theories. That girl is working her ass off to do the orders despite being sick a lot, she has done NOTHING wrong and so far, EVERYBODY got what they wanted.

I don't mean to be rude or anything like that but for fuck's sake, i think being patient and trusting her is fair. Good things in their own good time. Even Raina said that Raven will respond when she will find the time.

Just saying.

it's not anyone's til it's paid for. It's no a question of being professional or not. I brought it up to Raven, she hadn't heard anything after she made the head dress and after checking her spam found 50 BLANK emails (which to me would simply look like someone had a virus). If she made something and is under the impression the client forgot about it, and the thing is not paid for, she can do whatever she wants with it. But since I brought it to her attention she's contacting Aurora if she hasn't already. (I find people complain about not hearing from her and then never tell the result when they get it) What would be unprofessional, is dropping everything for a headdress that hasn't actually been bought, while people have actually paid several thousand dollars, some rush ordered, and been patient despite her being sick and monofins being backordered. Payment= priority. I really don't think it's fair for someone to complain about something they actually havent bought, especially when it's been made clear that emails were obviously not being seen. I mean, I was helping with them for weeks and I didn't see any messages. And if it's been 8 months you most certainly could have brought it up sooner, I made it clear in the threads a while ago that I was helping with communication for a bit and relayed several messages. So yeah, Raven's been made aware, so yeah, it's being "addressed". I get so annoyed that people make up what Raven must think or her motives. It's like, since she's quiet it gives everyone license to assume whatever they want, when in reality she's quiet cuz she doesn't have time for constant back and forth- she's working her ass off on orders :p

and Isabel, she's not currently taking orders. She took one in like, several months. Literally all her attention is on the current customers (which would be you) and though the price has changed I am under the impression they may not take anymore orders again for a bit anyway. So you could pay the old price like everyone else and get in under the wire for the tail, or wait with the new price for an undetermined time. I totally appreciate you being annoyed, anyone would. but I think you got in the right way anyway ;)


And Tyler got to edit more footage from their filming a few weeks ago...

Thank you Raina I know I made my order in July so it was a bit after that the price changed I was just a bit confused but I am still happy to pay the old price anyways simply because her tails are well worth the money and I know she works her butt off making them :)

I'm dying over that new octo top. That is just unnffff pefect!!

No, I'm just saying, Aurora said that Raven told her not to pay till it was done. I mean... What do you say? "No I want to pay now because I want priority?" I mean honestly if Raven said to me, "I don't know how much it will close so we'll discuss the payment when I finish it." I'd be like "Okay!" Because I mean... What else do you say? Is this just me or? I don't know..

I'm not bashing her I'm just saying it sounds a little unprofessional. I know how hard Raven works. But even though her tails are priority it doesn't mean a headdress should be put off for 8 months and forgotten about. And I'm just curious to why Raven never hit Aurora up with an email like, "Hey you still are interested in this headdress right?"

AniaR
10-08-2013, 11:23 PM
probably because she doesnt really have time to press people. When I was helping with the emails she got 100's a day, and then 100s of PMs a day on fb. So many people want to buy something and never follow through. So. Many. And there are so many people who go around saying they've ordered when they actually havent, they've just emailed her to let her know they want to order. But then it's not even that, because once you reply it's oh I want to make payments (which she doesn't do) or oh I want to order actually in x amount of months. So it's on to the next person who actually is ordering. You can't even get your head around the amount of emails and PMs, and youtube messages and deviantART comments etc from people who are interested but not actually ready. It's just like me with my gigs, if I don't hear from someone (though I have enough time that I can routinely check my spam) I'm not going to hold their spot, and if they get upset, well sorry. And from Raven's perspective, she wasn't hearing anything. Which happens constantly. People just stop. So on to the people who are paid and waiting. I was helping with the emails because people want constant updates- they don't understand they aren't the only client, or the only item being worked on, or that people pay for rush order, or that others have wear and tear on their tails. I had to stop because I couldn't keep up with it either. And there's not really anything that can be done. There were 3 of us going through emails but the more time spent on emails the less time spent on tails, and that's what everyone cries about being late. Even though I was directly helping with emails people knew I was helping so my inbox started exploding here and on FB and my personal mermaid email, and 90% of the stuff was stuff people shouldn't even be emailing about. And like I said, I never saw the emails/messages.

Anyway, Raven knows now, I havent caught up with her today but she told me she's going to make sure to address. She's just in the middle of rush orders.

Okay so I know I'm kind of late to the subject of floppy flukes, but I figured since I had a finis foil, I could just clear the air on any questions people might have about it.

Yep, I have the finis foil. Its (I think) the smallest monofin option from Finis as far as adult monofins go. That means that there is a lot of plain old silicone in my fluke that isn't supported, which is how it gets that floppy look. Now I think I saw someone somewhere mention that it's harder to control than a fluke with a competitor because of the lack of stiffness. And even though I've never used a competitor monofin, I can basically agree with that. My fluke weighs about 25 pounds, and since its very flexible, when lifting the fluke out of water and over my head, I have to be very careful because the tips of my fluke can bend down and give me a pretty decent thwack on the head. Like seriously. This one time I wasn't paying attention and I got my fluke up over my head and one of the tips came over my head and slapped me in the eye. I just kind of played it off as a "I've been shot!" and I rolled over back into the water, but yes. It is difficult to control. Also, since the fluke is so heavy, the only way I can lift it up by myself at any time is if I'm on a hard flat surface like the pool deck or the pool stairs, on my belly, and I kind of throw my weight into my legs to get it up. Even then, I'm only successful 85% of the time. The hard part about it is keeping the fluke from falling off to one side when it goes straight up. It's 25 pounds, so getting it to go straight up behind me and not fall off to one side and drag me with it is difficult sometimes, especially when there's waves that are already knocking me off balance. I definitely want to get a tail with a competitor to see if it's any lighter and easier to control.

That being said, I still love the finis foil in my tail because it looks wonderful and flowy and natural in pictures where I've got it up, it doesn't take as much effort to swim with it because there's less water resistance because the fluke is able to bend more, and I can do this nifty thing where if I'm floating on my belly in the water and I flip over, my fluke flops out of the water and splashes and it just looks really great.


Anyways, continue with whatever you guys were talking about earlier.

Sounds like Merbella needs an intern who can go through all the emails in exchange for something like learning tail making or who knows what. I've no doubt the amount of nonsense email she must get- when working in book selling we got dozens a day that never followed through, and that was for something as common and usually inexpensive as books.

Intern really doesn't work. There's too many things only she could answer and the more people going through emails the more room for communication error. Everyone thinks that suggestion is a cure all but in practice all tail makers who try it end up with more issues.

@ Raina- You may be right about that- but from reading a few of your past posts on how many "Do you make tails" and "Can I get a free one made for reason blah blah blah" messages she gets on a daily basis, any small amount of auto-filter on that would be helpful. At least- IMO. I wasn't thinking technical responses; but someone to sift through the pile and organize it for someone more qualified to quickly go through with responses to "actual" e-mails.

deepblue
10-09-2013, 02:09 PM
Yes, that's all I was thinking. It's easy enough to train someone to simply sort out what actually needs to go to the next pair of eyes. But, it's also not a business I've been in so I can't imagine what Raven is actually dealing with.

ps, Not to imply Raven hasn't thought of that on her own. It was just me thinking out loud. (So to speak.)

Not even junk. Only thing going to inbox is spam @_@ ugh. There are ways to restore emails and secondary verification that can be put in too. It's just so annoying -_- on top of everything else.... this... so lame. -_-

No, I'm just saying, Aurora said that Raven told her not to pay till it was done. I mean... What do you say? "No I want to pay now because I want priority?" I mean honestly if Raven said to me, "I don't know how much it will close so we'll discuss the payment when I finish it." I'd be like "Okay!" Because I mean... What else do you say? Is this just me or? I don't know..

I'm not bashing her I'm just saying it sounds a little unprofessional. I know how hard Raven works. But even though her tails are priority it doesn't mean a headdress should be put off for 8 months and forgotten about. And I'm just curious to why Raven never hit Aurora up with an email like, "Hey you still are interested in this headdress right?"

Blondie, I agree with you. It also sounds unprofessional to me.

Maybe a thing one could have present in the future for a custom order like that, if she doesn't know how much to charge would be to say, "OK, if you don't know the final price, maybe I can pay you X now, and when you finish you tell me if there is any more left for me to pay, or reinburse me the difference". That way you become a paying customer and you don't have to be put at the end of a list of which you do not know the lenght of (or the time it will get to ship) to get a product that you are interested in.

When I ordered my top I did not know I was going to be at the end of a list of tail customers. I assumed the top was not going to be out in 3 mere weeks as the listing said, but I did not expect to be the last one in being taken care of either. A paying customer is a paying customer. I always assumed these kind of businesses operated in a first come, first served basis, no matter the amount you are paying for an article.

I am not bashing. I am saying that many of the issues Raven has have to do with her not talking to and not being clear with her customers.

I'm totally in agreement. Aside from dorsals, I' not really a fan of extra fins but this makes me rethink that. So pretty. It made my heart stop a little.
I'm a little divided about dorsals myself. They look awesome in underwater pictures, but other than that they just flop over on land and look a little awkward when you swim because they bend strangely at the knees. There was a mermaid (I forget her name now, but people have told me it's Nerine the Arctic Mermaid) but she had a really good idea with Jesse to have a kind of split dorsal fin, which stopped either side if the knee to prevent that awkward bend. Personally, I'd never get one, I'm more of a hip fin lover. But each to their own, all of us are individual and it makes all the individual tails so awesome!

Mermaid Selene, the mr you're thinking of is Nerine the arctic mermaid. I do agree that in her case the dorsal looked great, but otherwise I'm not a huge fan of extra fins... at least, not enough that I'd spend a lot of extra money on it. Pectoral fins might be kind of cool or a small, partial dorsal fin, but it's not like I'd feel a huge loss without them.

I think Nerine the Arctic Mermaid is who you're talking about. I love her tail, and yes, that dorsal split is part of the reason for it.

Personally I much prefer smaller dorsals, ones that are very short and don't take up much of the tail. That's me, though and many tails (see the blue and yellow one!) pull off a dorsal pretty darn well.

Anyone have luck getting though to Raven yet? Sent her an email after the fb status was posted and no response. I'm sure she's overwhelmed with email. Just hope she got it. Also where did you find the angler template, Blondie? I want to work on my color scheme.

I sent her an email too, but haven't heard anything back from her. I only have tops left being made so I kinda figured it would be a lower priority. But I hope she did get the email.

OMG! I LOVE the fins, the fluke, the scales, the colors... o_o <3

Reminds me of blue raspberry and lemonade. I'm not fond of heel fins much ever but ahhhhh those are so well painted they just match so well. Same with the hip or pelvic fins up top!

Okay, so I've been trying to figure this tail out. Those pectoral (or what I'd assume was pectoral) fins at the top, they don't seem to be attached to the tail yet. Has Raven just not put them on yet or are they some kind of amazing new detachable fins she's created?

Selene - She probably hasn't attached them yet. I don't think it's quite possible to have detachable fins on a silicone tail. :-P

Not a huge fan of blue tails, usually, but I can't help like every single one she makes. :-D

Gah! I can't wait for updates on my tail!

I have also emailed her and have received no reply. I figure she's busy with rush orders. I just hope mine doesn't get pushed too far back. :-/ I have a lot of people expecting me to get it soon. >< (Not for gigs, mind you, just curious/expectant/anxious friends)

I picked it. :-P I felt the name just suited me, and my tail is very tropical. I drew inspiration from the flame angel fish and guppies. I prefer warmer waters and would loooove to learn more about Hawaiian culture. ^-^ Besides, it's pretty! (I also have the nickname Taika or Tai for short, so answering to Kai would be easy.)

So, I guess a lot of reasons!

As for my tail, I'm hoping everyone's gonna love it! She's already posted picks of the fluke design because she used it for one of her tails. It's the... purple/grey (?) One. I think it's grey, might be white. Either way it has a crazy cool pattern on it. XD I posted a picture not too far back of it. I can't post pics through my mobile.

Anyone seen those new anglers?! Daaaaaang they look good together!! So many angler flukes! Just all of a sudden!

Also, can't wait to hear back! Glad she's been getting through her emails. :3 Sucks they were deleted, but, hey, at least it gave her the chance to start fresh. (Minus the pesky ones who emailed her anyways and AREN'T current clients. :-/ Oh, well.... )

You know what is crazy? I was just looking at her fb, Raven almost has 12,000 fans. That's half the fans of people like Eric, Melissa, Hannah etc. Raven has barely had any publicity for her business- and all of what she has has been local media coverage of the mermaid tank stuff, nothing about her tail making. So without publicity, media exposure, big clients/gigs, celebs etc Raven in less than 2 years has gained half the fans of people who are considered famous in our community and been at it longer. Everytime the other tail makers and famous mermaids get media exposure I always watch their fan base jump (sometimes like crazy) on FB (the number of "likes") but that's not how Raven gets her "likes". She gets it because people freaking love the work she does. I think that's really amazing when you stop and thinking about it. There isn't outside influence, it's just her work speaking for itself. It kinda blows my mind when I reflect on it, because my tail will be two years old soon... and I look at how much and how far she's grown and come in these two years. MIND BLOWING.

I know what u mean Raina! I may not have my tail this long ( It's 3,5 months now) but I really prase myself lucky owning a tail made by her! I even don't know why people (that own a basic tail) directly start saving for a performane. I love my basic tail! It takes long to dry, but is much more esier to get in to, it's not that SUPER heavy and idk... I just LOVE my tail! I will have loads of fun years with my tail, i'm treating it if it was my baby xD lol I know the tail itself is not going to hold/last forever, but it costs me ALOT (2000 Dollar in total, with shipping etc.) So i'm treating it like other people would to if... They buy there first car or something? :p lol But u know what I mean ^^ hehe

Only two years?! I thought she had been making tails much longer than that! Her work is just beautiful! I'm curious though...do you have any idea how many tails she's made? It seems like every time I turn around I see new tails!

Honestly though her work really inspires me. Her painting skills are just incredible! She does an amazing job blending colors. :)

10-13-2013, 11:52 AM
I'm honestly just so proud of her. I think the thing people miss is that she's not trying to be famous, she's not trying to beat out other tail makers etc. She just wants to make art and make stuff that makes others and herself happy. I remember MVD saying something along those same lines as well a while back too. She doesn't try to threaten other tail makers, or try to one up em, or constantly engage in a battle... she's just too busy for that lol. And that level of drama is exhausting. She just tries to out do herself. When I sent her my tail to be taken in and extra fins etc she was embarrassed she ever sent it to me to begin with because she knows so much more now, and was so much better. But I loved it either way <3

She made her own alex plus tails personally a few years earlier, but she only ever sold them second hand because she didn't endorse the materials once she realized how bad they were. I do believe when she fixed my old mertailor tail, that was her first time doing anything like that. My silicone tail was her FIRST silicone tail she made, and I'm not sure how many since then but I think it's a lot :p

We're lucky in the mercommunity to work with such amazing artists. You're really getting a piece of a person's soul.

No news for me yet either.

That Ursula top is just gorgeous! Although when I see it, I think more of Cthulhu than of Ursula (not a Disney's Little Mermaid fan here).

I am more interested in the dark side of the sea (i.e. Lovecraft) than in the usual "brightness" that mermaids are normally associated with. I have always figured than evil mermaids (as the ones in Pirates of the Caribbean) would be more than happy to be Cthulhu's minions.

10-18-2013, 06:07 AM
I'm thinking the same thing too.... like the ones where they're showing the tails and the scales too, if I didn't already know what those flukes and scales looked like, I'd have a hard time figuring them out (the Mermaid Jenny one is hard to see the detail of the scales AND the shape of the Merfin fluke since it only appears in fleeting clips, usually moving, and the Mermaid Sommer one, while it does show the fluke a bit better, and more still, doesn't really show it fully)

Are they going to release a full video catalog in the end and these are just clips, or are these THE catalog?

PearlieMae

Guys: you know a teaser? One that gets you interested and wanting to see more? A teaser trailer gets you looking for the stuff you mentioned, gets you saying, "This looks like something I want to see more of, I want to keep an eye out for the detailed video." It's not a "here's everything about this." More of a, "Hey, this exists, keep an eye out for more details!"

From your comments about wanting to see more of the top, looks like the teaser accomplished its purpose.

FYI She just got keys to their new space, so they're packing up and moving. :d theyve been preparing for a while but the place they had lined up before fell through. This one thankfully didn't. Raven seriously needs the space. So happy for her, should help the production time of the remaining tails once she's moved in :)

Okay, I know their base price for competitor tails but any ideas on VERY custom work?
I'm talking about crystals, glow in the dark paint areas, lights in the tail, and custom monofin shape, lots of extra fins and more.
I'm still perfecting my design but I would like to know what price range I'm looking at so I can save up, and know the time frame of when I'd finally be able to afford it. Thanks. Any ideas?

Okay, so I've tried to break the prices down as much as I can for you based off what I know/on her page (I'm sure Raina will be able to give you a better estimate but it's impossible without knowing EXACTLY what you want (i.e how many sets of fins/dorsal, etc)

-Base Performance Tail Price: $2,600
-EACH set of extra fins: $150
-Dorsal Fin: $300
-Custom Fluke: $400-$600 but can be MORE or LESS
-Glow in the Dark or UV black light reactive Spots: -Entire Tail: $200 -Spots/Stripes or Detailing: $75
-Glitter Top Coats: $50

-As far as I can see she doesn't list a price for crystals, so you'd have to ask.
-I'm not sure if she offers lights added to tails, it was experimented with a while ago but the tail was never presented as far as I know and she never put up anything about making it an option so it may not be.

And you can't forget postage, which will vary incredibly depending on where you live and weight.

Honestly the best way to get an accurate estimate would be to email Raven herself, even if it is just about the lights and crystals. Every other option I've listed above with prices she's listed.

Hope that helps :)



ON A SIDE NOTE:
Does anyone remember Raven posting a video of one of her tails reacting to UV light? I remember her posting it I swear but I can't find it. I'm trying to show a friend so help would be greatly appreciated :)

Kailani, you ordered back in April and are still waiting? oh boy, that means I will have alot longer of a wait then I thought. I guesstimated about 5 months..LOL...Sigh, Hope I get it in time for an event next April. How does the process usually go? After paying, I was a bit slack on getting the measurements, then when I heard back, I redid the measurements, b/c I didn't do all of them right. When they start working on someones do they let them know? I thought it was only when they start painting? I have sent in everything, reference pics, measurements, drawings, ect.

MerEmma
11-06-2013, 02:22 PM
Keep in mind Kailani had a custom fluke done for her tail, so that added on a fair bit of time to her wait. ^^

11-06-2013, 02:28 PM
Some get tails within 3 months but lots of factors make them late
I think next year they should switch to waits are 3-5 months and then people can be happily surprised. That being said I'm sure you'll get by April.

They typically only contact once paint goes on unless they are worried about a measurement problem.

a lot of people don't consider too that there is a queue. Just because someone orders a tail doesn't mean it's started the next day, it just goes to be next in line usually. (not saying it's any of you, just using the chance to say it!)

they're in the middle of moving. She is literally working on all the orders alone while Tyler moves their house/studio. Don't expect to hear from her unless 1) she manages to finish your tail or 2) they're all moved in. (also, she'll contact you when she has an update. She only sends an update once one side of the tail is painted. To be sure you approve of the paint before she does the other side. )

Hey folks, Ravens got her internet again, yay! I just wanted to post a friendly reminder, that if you order a tail you wont get an update until it's ready to paint, or unless when doing the construction something seems off to them about the measurements.

AniaR
11-11-2013, 03:23 PM
Okay well first of all, that was Raven's PERSONAL Facebook. This is something she has been discussing with me and heart wrenched over for a very long time. This is not finalized. She has not made all the necessary decisions, and she has not officially announced that she is stopping yet to her actual merbellas page. So please don't have an internet meltdown. You're seeing this out of context, and Frenchy I love you, but you shouldn't take things from people's personal pages and post it for their business. If she wanted to make an official announcement, she would have. People need to have the freedom to post on their personal pages their own thoughts as they are working through them, without fear of it being posted on the forum. (side note, this is an exact reason why so many pro mermaids and tail makers DON'T add people from the community)

Raven has been working her ass off since she made my tail, non-stop. She has missed her own wedding anniversary, birthday, family functions, and has no social life because literally all she does is make tails. We have been talking about it a lot this past year and how she's so happy to help other people with their dreams, but it's literally all she does. Raven never wanted to be a 'top tail maker', or fight other tail makers, or make loads of money and mass produce stuff. She has never had the ambition of outputting mermaid tails at an eric level. She's been more like MVD in that she is selective and does it for the joy of it.

Now whether Raven takes a break, or leaves it all together, is her decision that she hasn't made yet. It's a whole process of finding a balance, experimenting, and figuring out what is going to make her happy. Part of that is talking to your friends, getting input from people, getting ideas etc. Up until now Raven hasn't said this to any of her other friends, just spoken with me and her husband about it, and then she took the leap to let her facebook friends know what she's been thinking. It's not fair to take it out of context. If she wanted it to be public knowledge for everyone, she would of posted it from the merbellas page.

Please respect Raven's privacy and her right to make her own decisions about what is best for her during this time. I understand this will scare people because they want to buy tails, but at the end of the day she has a right to stop, or take a break, whenever she wants and for however long she wants. SHe shouldn't have to face any backlash because of it.

Blondie
11-11-2013, 03:28 PM
I agree with Raina. If she wanted her market to know, she would have posted it on her Merbella's page. If you're someone's facebook friend you have to respect their privacy. I hope she doesn't stop completely, but I understand where she's coming from. She's not a machine, she's a human....Or mermaid. But maybe she'll just take less orders? And like you said, Raina, do it at a MVD level? Maybe take a few top orders and maybe two tail orders when she wants to.

I just feel bad when I see someone with a marvelous talent for something quit at it. It's kinda like your calling. But we as people evolve and grow. We love something one day, and fall out of love with it the next. But I feel like if you have a talent for something, you should never quit completely. Just because that's what makes you who you are. That's what makes you special.

AniaR
11-11-2013, 03:37 PM
Yup. Plus it adds extra pressure to her decision making if the entire mercommunity is suddenly involved and giving their two cents. Then you get the rush of people who want to get an order in because they're scared she won't take any, and people who will out right be super selfish and mad. And she just does NOT need any of that when she's in a state of trying to decide how and if she wants to move forward with this aspect of her company.

So to clarify, Raven was discussing the possibility with her friends, this is not a decision, it's not an announcement, it's not an omg Raven isn't going to make tails anymore after ____. This was a personal conversation taken a bit out of context. Nothing really changes, Raven already only takes orders when she's able to, unlike other tail makers who just take orders 24/7. So just keep watching her page for announcements for if/when she'll take orders.

@ Raina, I deleted my post and i apologize to all of you, girls, for this mistake. Right now, i'm feeling really bad and stupid for confusing her personal page with her professional one. I admit that i didn't think through because i was shocked. I also apologized to Raven and i told her that my intentions weren't bad. I didn't mean to upset any of you, especially her.

This merman need some tail slaps and a good kick in the butt. :$

In the meantime, here are some more photos!

That blue ring! Gah! Just so cute!!! ♥♥ That's exactly the top I'd want. :3 He's so adorable! ^_^

Man, her basic tails... other than price And options, it is hard to tell the difference! They are all so amazing.

I hope she doesn't 100% quit, but she deserves a break. :-) Perhaps finish off current orders, take a break and start fresh? I don't know what the original post had said. :-( So my context is a little skewed.

Hope things are well with her!

Oh it's okay Arion! I would have gotten scared too and probably would have to talk to someone about it. *patpat* No harm done.

I can't believe that's a basic. When I was first stalking her page I didn't know the difference between the basics and the pro tails either. They all look so amazing. I thought if I ever got one it'd be a basic and I'd be the happiest girl alive but my friend is the biggest sweetheart in the world and told me to snatch up the pro spot when it was available. So much <3 for him.

Other than neoprene and lack of extra fins, I don't think there is a differences between the two.

Haha Well, of course, Raina! You were first. :-P I'm shooting for second? Maybe third?

Haha
My tail was 230 roughly, before postage lol.

Raina- How long did you have to wait for yours?

**Also sorry for the kinda late reply to that, I was at a convention and didn't see the next page lol.

A year. Lol but I knew it would be a long time getting into it because raven had to acquire all the tools, materials, and skills. She also went through a lot of change and personal stuff.

Wow! A year, but an understandable year..

240?! Wowee!! What was the delay?

At least you guys have orders in. Can't wait until she is able to take them again.

Feels like I am waiting in line, to wait in line. But still, worth the wait for something like this.

There never really was any explanation, the only thing I can assume was something went wrong because Ariel Starfish's tail was ordered after mine, and had the seams redone and still went out first and Phoenix mermaid also ordered after her, and we got ours at the same time. I really didn't mind the waiting though, it's art and you can't rush art. Raven also got sick a lot and went out for performances during my tail construction, so that set it back a fair bit.

guys that was exactly the time I was posting a play by play off all the reasons the orders in that time frame were delayed... lol I even made a new FAQ for them to cover it.

Edit: Sorry! I didn't see Raina's post! The reason I asked was because there were other mers getting updates and tails who ordered after. Again, sorry!

That's strange. Haha Well, at least I know why mine is taking a while. XP

Just swimming around, waiting for updates. Heehee

Got an update! It's the dreaded "does the colour look right" update. >< I knew it was coming!

Colours look great, minor tweaking. She's waiting on something and then hopefully my tail will be done this week! *squeals* Yay! Oh goodness this is exciting!
