Thread: Purple Mermaid Studios!

  1. #1

    Purple Mermaid Studios!

    Hi everyone!

    Earlier this year I made two partial silicone tails (neoprene & ge silicone), with the intention of testing them out for the summer and seeing how they held up. I was pretty confident in them before I tested it over the summer, and now I'm really confident in the quality/durability! The person that owns the other tail has used it all summer, and I've heard nothing but good things from her!
    Anyway, so with that, I've decided to start selling them! I know there is a huge lack of mid-range tailmakers, so I'm hoping to at least kind of fill that role.
    They start at $250 as a base price, and I charge a little extra for complex designs, zippers, and large extra fins. Shipping isn't included in that price, but I don't charge for it until the tail is done. I do finis foils by default, but I can do some other monofins as well!
    Here are some pictures of my work:

    I'm also holding a raffle right now. There is less than a week to enter! Entries are $5, and I'm limiting the number of entries to 3. I know raffles have been a problem in the past, which is why I hesitated to post it here until now. I have it on rally up, and it's set up more like a crowdfunding campaign per their request. I also have it set up so that no money is collected until the goal is met. I've got 75% of the goal met and only 6 days left so I'm hoping the mer community can help out!
    There is a more detailed post about it on my facebook page
    And here is the link to enter!

    How far from the fluke edge is the monofin? Can you line one up on the fluke so we can see how it sits inside the tail? And is the monofin removable from the tail?

    The second one is really pretty. I just love those colors!

    Do you have any threads going about how you nake your tails? I'm curious on the process.

    A bit more than a fabric tail, Probably around 7-10 pounds? I do know for sure that they weigh WAY less than my silicone tail!

    The ones I have made so far have the monofin sealed into the fluke, but I could do velcro or snaps to make it removable!
    I'll take pictures of the fluke/monofin as soon as I can! (probably tomorrow)

    Thanks! I haven't made any threads about mine, but I'm pretty sure there is another mer that made a ge silicone/neoprene tail on here.

    Thank you! I was really hesitant to start this because I know there have been a lot of problems with these kinds of tails in the past (mertailor, fishbutts, merberry)
    I hope it goes as well as I want it to!

    I finally finished the raffle tail!
    It's not perfect by any means, but I learned a lot making it and I've definitely improved since making the first one! Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1454270710431.jpg
