Tanychew's Tails

£2,273

             Hello everyone and thanks for checking out the Tanychew's Tails Kickstarter!

My name is Tania Domingos, aka Tanychew, I'm 27 years old and I live in the UK. From a very young age I have always loved all things Merfolk related.

Drawing has always been a passion of mine, and knowing that you can swim in something you've created from scratch, is a dream come true.

Tanychew's Tails is all about fabric tails that are just as unique and beautiful as silicone tails, without the price tag. All tails and tops are made to measure, be they pre-designed or custom, they will always be made specifically for you.

Ever since I started my tail designs over a year ago, I've always known that making my designs a reality was the next natural step of my journey.

Tail bags made of neoprene, suitable for any monofin. Tail bag design can be made to match your tail!

  • Pre-designed bags
  • Custom bags

Available for both men and women, these tops will be printed onto Neoprene, just like the tails. These tops will be swimmable and comprised of a bra, or solely neoprene:

  • Pre-designed Top
  • Custom Design Top

Tails will either be made of Scuba or Neoprene, although extra fins will be made of Scuba only. Tails can come with their original waist design, or a blended one. To start with, I'll be making tails for the Luna and Linden monofins. I plan on offering the following:

  • Pre-designed Scuba Tail
  • Custom Design Scuba Tail
  • Pre-designed Neoprene Tail
  • Custom Design Neoprene Tail

I'm proud to be able to say that ever since I started designing my tails, I've had many people asking me if I also make my own tails.

Putting Tanychew's Tails on Kickstarter will allow me to start the business sooner than expected. It will also be a good way to gauge how much interest there is for a different fabric tailmaker.

If the project is not fully funded, Tanychew's Tails will become a reality, although it may take a few years. This is an opportunity for people who want my tails now, rather than later, and to snag a few goodies whilst also supporting this venture.

Whilst some companies need 10K, 20K or even 50K to start a business, I've been able to cut back and only budget for what is absolutely necessary to start Tanychew's Tails. Here's a breakdown of where that money will be going:

As a thank you, I have several rewards in store. All tiers will receive a handwritten note from me and access to the Tanychew's Tails Discord chat group. Everyone will have access to the Discord group from day 1. From Tier 2 and above, I have some super special goodies in store! Take a look down below!

Risks and challenges

Although I've worked in many sectors before, this is a completly new and different area for me, and although I may face some challenges, I know that I have the support of many lovely people, as well as the passion necessary to pull through.
I aim to always be open, honest and always be in contact with whoever I work with because, at the end of the day, it's your dreams I'm hoping to achieve.
