I received a sample for this review/feature. Opinions expressed are my own.
If you’re looking for a unique, last-minute Halloween costume for kids ages 6 and up then you should check out Fin Fun’s spooktacular Neon Skeletail. It makes for an awesome zombie mermaid costume! This swimmable mermaid tail features a vibrant, 3D skeleton pattern with fluorescent ink that glows in black light.
Each Neon Skeletail comes with a free matching top available in 3 colors. Like all Fin Fun swimmable mermaid tails, the Neon Skeletail fits snug to ankles and is designed for swimming with monofin insert (not intended for walking). The tail sizes include youth 6-12 and adult XS-L. Here is Big Sis in a size 10 tail and size 8 bikini set. She is 8 and tall for her age and these sizes work great for her.
My oldest daughter is absolutely obsessed with Mermaids. She saw a girl swimming in an actual tail once when we were at the beach and since then she was hooked. Last year Santa (as in I bought it) got her a Fin Fun mermaid tail and she swims in it all the time and calls herself a part-time mermaid. My water baby learned to swim before she could walk and is an amazing swimmer.
The “trick” to swimming in these is wearing the monofin underneath the tail. Fin Fun provides an easy access slit at the bottom. This is the Monofin Jr. I bought from Fin Fun last year and it has gotten hours of wear and still works great. Big Sis swims by moving her body up and down just like one might imagine a mermaid doing.
It is good out of the water too! We just pull Big Sis in a wagon and now she can even participate in a Halloween parade as a Zombie Mermaid! We just plan on adding some zombie face makeup to finish off the look. Check out their adorable video clip for this tail!
So you can see what it looks like under black light here is a stock photo from their website. Ours looks pretty much just like that under a blacklight I just don’t have the photography skills to capture it.
I am a really big fan of Fin Fun. I have purchased from them before so even though I got this skeletail for review know that I am a buyer of their goods as well. Our other tail has held up well even in the hot Florida sun so I can attest to their long term quality. She gets compliments on her Fin Fun tail every time she wears it. The Neon Skeletail is perfect for some Halloween water fun!
