Please do not create "How To Make A Mermaid Tail" videos using my instructions. I risked so much to reveal my secrets and methods.
Q: Will you make me a tail?
A: No, I cannot make anyone a tail. That is why I made this video. So you can =)
Q: Where did you get your monofin and how much did it cost?
A: I got my Finis Tempo monofin online for about $50. Try ebay or searching on google.
Q: How did you make your top?
A: I covered an old swim top with material.
Q: How do you get the monofin in and out of the tail?
A: You can either leave the bottom open and extend your fabric a few inches past the monofin, or just roll up the monofin and work it in and out of the tail.
Q: What is the material called and where do you get it?
A: It is just swimwear/dance material. You can find it at craft stores that carry a variety of fabrics. It comes in all kinds of colors and designs. Mine happens to be a teal hologram material. Jo~Ann fabrics is where I go. You can also go to AC Moore arts and crafts.
Q: How much is the material?
A: Depends on which material you want. At JoAnns it is $15 a yard and 2 yards will make a tail.
DISCLAIMER: Always use proper supervision when swimming with your tail. Swimming with the legs bound together is very dangerous and should only be attempted by trained persons.

This is my first tutorial. Not the best, I agree, but it is the only one out there =)
With that said, please excuse my goofiness and brainfart moments. I winged the whole thing, and only did one take.

If you make a tail please send me a picture! I would love to see your creations =)
