Thread: SyrenStudios Tails (the first custo-mer)

  1. #1

    SyrenStudios Tails (the first custo-mer)

    It's about time I posted a review.

    Attachment 32663

    APPEARANCE AND ARRIVALIt arrived in wonderful condition. Hardly any damage at all (aside from the damage that Lily fixed prior to shipping my tail out). Very glittery, and the colour was beautiful. it was carefully packaged in a large square box (as seen in my unpacking video, it was HUGE!) Along with my tail, it also came with two gifts; a knit octopus to wear on my wrist, and a necklace made out of the colour samples of my tail. It was a tad bit dusty and came with minor strands of hair but it looked for the most part clean (kinda comes with the silicone territory...). When i flipped the tail over to the backside the silicone overlap was very apparent. Even more so in photographs.

    Also, the hips
    Given that this is Lily's second tail that was made, i knew it wasn't going to be 100% perfect so it didn't bother me too much.
    Tail was heavy (as to be expected) but when I'm swimming she works like a dream... 4 out of 5 stars

    ORDERING PROCESS
    I knew what kind of tail I wanted so the ordering process went very swiftly (within 24 hours to be exact, my order went through without any complication). Lily sent me all the required details she needed (measurements, tail design, extras i would like), I sent her the design, she altered it to make it better, then I was sent an invoice through paypal for the amount we agreed upon (paid in full). My tail arrived within 3 weeks. 5 out of 5 stars

    COMMUNICATIONS
    Lily was very vocal and we were in constant communication with her. She was very pleasant. There was a slight misunderstanding with my measurements but we reconfirmed everything. Upon agreement Lily also agreed to send me WIP pictures. once every few days she sent me updated pictures (up to 3 at a time), and would update me what she would be doing that day and how my tail was doing. Lily was also very considerate and informed me that my tail had been damaged and she quickly sent me a picture of the damage, and then another picture of the fix up.
    Poor girl, she was freaking out so bad. She asked me if she could do anything to make up for it. Of course like a greedy little mer I am, I requested something small. As long as she informed me what had happened, fixed my tail and showed me it was enough for me. 6 out of 5 stars. (Is that rating allowed? She really went above and beyond.)

    First swim
    I slipped into my tail no problem (i used watered down vegan conditioner) when i went to my first shoot. After swimming for a while i noticed my foot would keep slipping out of the foot pocket. The monofin is a Finis competitor.
    Attachment 32664
    The fluke slightly makes my monofin visible if i put it up towards the light (something i don't have a problem with. for the most part it's hardly ever visible unless you're looking from underneath). 4.5 out of 5 stars.

    OVERALL
    5 out of 5. I honestly have very few complaints and i am very quite happy with my tail!

    Sadly we can't move it, but you can copy and paste it for sure Just FYI the images in your first post are broken, you'll need to fix those! If you have any trouble with the images in the review let me know (there are instructions in the rules in each review thread).
