Fish Tails

I was browsing the Internet and I came across this article “So, You Want To Be A Mermaid?” in The Huffington Post. I am always on the lookout for cool products and this is one of them – realistic, custom-made wearable mermaid and merman tails. They’re made from a host of materials like silicone, urethanes, and latex rubbers. 

The entity responsible for these 'outfits' is Mertailor LLC and it was started by Eric Ducharme in 2006 when he was just sixteen years old. You can order the tails online at 

Performance Silicone Mermaid Tail – Silicone mermaid and merman Tails are created to fit like a second skin, body prosthetic. Made from the highest quality silicone, Professional Grade Dragon Skin Platinum Silicone is used by the Professional Special Effects industry market today. Price: $2,729.50.

Silicone Neoprene Mermaid Tail – Realistic silicone mermaid Tails are created from quality silicone. Each Tail has Neoprene backing added for strength. These Tails are built with a Finis Monofin. Price: $530.00.

Performance Spandex Mermaid Tail – This design includes a side zipper from waist to floor, elastic waist band, lined fin pocked, and lined tail. The Tail is created with a single pocket for two swimfins to be placed in. Price: $397.50.

Once you’ve got your fin, you can then be your true mermaid (or merman) self:
