Thread: Has anyone heard of this tail maker?

  1. #1

    Has anyone heard of this tail maker?

    Sibyl Ekouaer? On the mermaid tails for sale Facebook they are offering a full silicone for $350, custom painted and fit. I don’t know many merpeeps, so maybe you guys know them...

    They say they are having a sale because their supplier is having a sale but I’m just trying to be cautious.
    My beginner-ness is showing.

    can't offer full silicone for that price. the silicone itself costs more. sounds scammy to me!

    they only have 53 friends on FB, and the photos they posted look like someone else's photos. (you can reverse image search on google)

    Seem like a scam in my opinion. For an additional $30, you can go from a finfun monofin to a finis wave. No matter what shopping site I go to, the official finfun cost more. This has me concern of the handy work.

    it took me a LONG time to find any safety information about the medium. but I did find this "Harmful to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquaticenvironment."
    so... make a post about the dangers and take a hard pass on that one
    Take the wave now and know that you're free
    Turn your back on the land face the sea
    Face the wind now so wild and so strong
    When you think of me
    Wave to me and send me a song

    PhaylennMuruch, I found similar warnings. At the price for their "silicone", with these warnings, I'd bet that they're using a DAP silicon product or one like it, which is harmful. Wouldn't buy one of these... That said you COULD make a full silicon tail from tubes of 100% GE, multipurpose, silicon, but for this price, I'm guessing you could MAYBE make photography tails for babies.
