    This is beautiful!! How do I become a pod member? I didn’t see a tab or link for it after I clicked on it. Also, I just started a nonprofit for suicidal prevention in Youth and needing a tail (1st one) have a fin so experienced mermaid swimmer ..just no pretty costume yet . I’ve poured my own resources into getting it started so have asked the companies to donate one but noone has responded yet. If anyone knows of someone who makes them that isn’t a small mom and pop company that can afford to donate one it’s a tax write off and for a good cause.

    No one of that caliber is going to give away a free tail. Who is going to cover the costs of making the tail when there is no incoming money to pay for it all. Those things are expensive for a reason.

    How is Jaffa being rude to you? She is just telling you that no one is going to give you a free tail. Do you really think that someone will give you something that's easily over $2000 for free? I had to work and save up for a very long time until I had the funds to buy materials to make my silicone tail, which by the way took 2 years for me to make. The dragonskin silicone alone cost me over $400. Silicone tails are expensive for a reason; the cost of the materials and the time and effort it takes to make just one tail. No one is going to give you things for free, you have to work for them. Also, I don't think that someone would want to do business with you, considering that you threw a hissy fit when we told you that no one would get a tail worth thousands of dollars for free.

Jaffa sorry this person mean to you. truth was needed.

    Mermaid Jaffa was not trying to be rude to you, she was simply stating the fact that most companies would not send a free tail to anyone, unless they see a Return On Investment, usually publicity to a wide audience (thousands+) in the mermaid community. If you can offer that to them, then maybe you might be lucky to get a free tail but otherwise you need to be realistic.

    If you can't afford a tail you can always consider sewing your own fabric tail or casting your own silicone tail.

    no one will give you a tail for free. what is this major company that is offering one to you? bc let me tell you i would LOVE to get in touch with those guys. not only is your reasoning behind why you deserve a free tail super guilt-trippy and suspicious, you got extremely defensive when you were told that no one will just give you a tail worth thousands of dollars. you have been going on other threads talking about how "rude" jaffa was, asking how to block her, and claiming cyberstalking. no one will commend the "altruistic endeavor" of someone who throws a fit when they're told they wont be given things for free.

    Theres just really no reason to need a free tail for advocating suicide prevention. Its perfectly possible to do that without a free tail.

    I mean, it shouldn't be TOO hard if you've got a good ed program for suicide prevention to get a grant so you can pay a tailmaker. I'm sure with a legit tax write off from your 501(c)3 and payment to cover the cost of materials, a donation shouldn't be TOO hard to secure.

    But you need an existing program for donations of that magnitude, not "I'm starting one up." May I recommend some classes on nonprofit management? They're cheaper than a silicon tail if you're not doing the full degree program, and there's a number of universities who offer them online.

    Thanks for the backup my mercousins!

    This goes for everyone that joins and tries to beg a free tail...

    Its like I said, these tails that you want, they cost thousands of dollars to make. Even if one did find the cheapest of cheap silicone tail, chances are the materials are not safe for human use. Would you want to wear something that's going to make you sick? Or injure you in some way?

    No. That's why tail makers use top quality products and in doing so they have to increase the price of the finished product. That's why its so expensive. If you want a tail that bad, get a fabric tail and paint it up so it looks more realistic. Or even better, paint it up using skin safe silicone to get textured scales and fins.

    Mermaid Elisa, If you know how to sew you can make your first tail pretty easily. That gives you something at least until you can save up. Most big tailmakers do not do this, b/c honestly there are alot of great causes to donate too, so it makes it hard for them. Good luck

    No. That's why tail makers use best quality products and in doing so they have to increase the price of the finished product. That's why its so expensive. If you want a tail that bad, get a fabric tail and paint it up so it looks more realistic. Or even better, paint it up using skin safe silicone to get textured scales and fins.

    I'm just gonna squeak in a few pics of my first ever swim in a tail if that's okay





    I followed the advice of the forum and went with fin fun for my first tail, and I'm glad I did. My only minor issue with it is my hobbit feet are a pain to get into the monofin cover. Otherwise holy shit, I've never had so much fun in the water in my life. I'm glad I combed through the network first, it was super helpful. You guys are great.
