Thread: Need help on silicone mermaid tail!

    Need help on silicone mermaid tail!

    Hello everyone! I have been mermaiding for 3 years in a fabric tail and deciding to take it up a notch---(A WHOLE CRANK.) Im thinking about making a silicone tail but I'm afraid I'm going to mess up and my money all go to a big slop of silicone. My other idea is to get a MerNation genesis tail... out of all of this I'm afraid I'm going to buy/make a silicone tail and then only fit in it for a few months. Im only 13 but don't want to waste my HARD EARNED money on a silicone tail and then not last. I would like some help please! Thanks

    13? You're still growing! You'd outgrow a silicone tail in months. Another alternative would be a neoprene tail.

    I have a hybrid silicone tail (Spellbound). Its measurements are about 10% smaller than my own, and it is a fairly snug fit. Another 5% smaller and it would be on the verge of too tight. That gives maybe a 10% range in measurements. So, if your measurements change by 5%, the tail becomes unusable. For you, that will be like half an inch to 1 1/2 inches, depending on location of the measurement.

    At your age, don't waste a ton of money on something you will outgrow.

    Definitely look at something in between, like Mertailor's line of tails with a silicone monofin and a fabric body! A step up, but more forgiving in size changes!
