Tail Man


Tail Man

Tail Man is a company which provides realistic mermaid tails for television, movies, magazines, commercials and promotional events.

The notable Neiman Marcus Christmas catalog offered the tails in their 2003 catalog for US$10,000, including swimming lessons in Los Angeles. The tail also comes with a video, for those less willing to travel. The tails are custom made to the purchaser's size, and generally size around 5.5 feet long.

According to the New York Post's Bridget Harrison, on trying on a tail, "The tail is made exactly to your body measurements - and it's literally a skintight fit. Just to get it on requires a good amount of undignified heaving and wiggling." It took 10 minutes for Harrison to "get it over my butt." [http://www.mermaidrentals.com/neyk_pst.htm]

In October 2003, Tail Man's tails were featured on a segment of "The Today Show".

As polyurethane is neutrally buoyant (it neither sinks nor floats), maneuvering in water is relatively easy. It is also strong enough that it doesn't tear on rocks.

Tail Man founder Thom Shouse claims he saw three real mermaids while snorkeling off the coast of Palos Verdes, California, at age 15.Fact|date=November 2007
