    Just to let everyone know, I received the sequins the other day and have now posted the first part of my colour references and durability tests!

    I had Mermaid Shelly's personal e-mail as I had ordered some large sequins from her late last year. I just tried to contact her and got a response from someone saying that she passed away in November and to please stop contacting her about tails, but they were nice to send me a link to her blog to read what she was preparing for her last days.

    I'm interested in ordering some more sequins, anyone doing an order anytime soon? I may just go for the 3kg order. Is this company easy to work with?

    I have ordered from them. They company is based in Maharashtra in India. Good communication but lack integrity. Shipping can be pricey (shipping cost just over what the items in total were worth.) but the sequins are nice and big and shiny. Ordering in bulk is highly recommended.

    As far as I know, Shelly LaPointe is alive and well. It's just her mermaid persona of Mermaid Shelly that "passed away" as she wished to leave the mermaid community and leave her mermaid persona behind, and move on in life. I'm not sure why they would say that she passed away without being specific, making people worry? Anyhow, I hope you can get the sequin situation worked out!

    Has anybody ordered these recently? I've been searching everywhere and cannot find any suppliers for this size sequin. My tail desperately needs some new ones for repairs.

    For all those trying to order, Vector is trying to coordinate orders for these sequins- they're asking for orders by the 25th of Feb!
    Here's the email I got for more details:

    We are planning to take a order for the same and are trying to collaborate all orders together. As we are getting too many requests for this material.

    Please let us know if you are still interested.
    Please send us your orders by 25th of February 25/02/2015.


    Hoping to hear from you positively.

    So we can order individually but they will consider all of our orders as one? I want some but I'm sort of confused as to how the ordering process works.

    Yes they end up being quite large, but so much easier to sew than the smaller ones.

    Oh yes, i´m very interestet of this large sequins. Where can i order this beautys?

    As far as I can tell they're trying to coordinate orders becuase they make them in big batches, which is why the usual minimum order is 6kg. But this case they're lowering it to 3kg (6lbs) for our community. They still make big batches though, so that's why they're trying to do them together. They will end up making 6kg or more but are splitting them up and shipping orders that are 3kg. As I said previously you can get a few different colors, since they have to make 1kg min of each color. So for a 3kg order you can get 3 colors. (or 2.2 lbs of each color).

    It has been estimated that it takes approximately 3 pounds to make one tail, closer to 4 if you cover the entirety of the fluke as well as the body. Which is why I made this thread in the first place, so two people can go in on and order together if they don't want nearly 2 tails worth of sequins.

    I'm just a middle man posting information though, if you want more information or want to order you need to email or call them. All their contact information is in the first post. Be sure to mention you're with the mermaid community, as they're doing these special offers for us.
