My name is Alexandria LaNier, I am a professional award winning costume designer. On occasion I work with fellow specialty costume artists. I recently purchased a mermaid tail from The Mertailor and I’m quite happy to share my experience.
First off I want to make a special note that whenever I work with fellow artists I always show them complete respect for their art and craft. There are so few artists that have the natural gifted talent to create these masterpieces and I do sincerely appreciate the opportunity to be able to work with them. I should also tell you that I have extremely high standards when purchasing costumes. I will not make or purchase cheap product.
Now onto the tail... I paid $2,000 for my Silicone Mermaid Tail and have to say at first sight my immediate response was that I practically stole it from TheMertailor. In my professional opinion the quality of my tail is superb in every way and should be sold for $7,000 to 10,000. Why? First off, the overall design is exactly what you would expect a mermaid tail to look like. The blending of colors infused into the tail create such a magnificent realistic appearance one would almost believe it is the real thing.
The durability isevident by simply handling the product. This tail will without a doubt hold up to the most rigorous of situations which is exactly what I would expect. I purchased my tail to fit several different body styles and I have no doubt that it will fit every one of them like a glove.
What I have experienced from other mermaid tail artists in the past was never this good. Not even close. I would happily refer anyone to the TheMerTailor and be completely confident that they will be overjoyed with their finished product.
