I have been promising you details of my FinFun custom mermaid tail for a while now! Whilst FinFun posted it about it on their blog, I have some extra photos to share!
Custom Mermaid Tail Design
With this historic castle in mind, Fin Fun’s lead tail designer created a personalized mermaid tail that resembles the medieval elegance the castle is known for. The stone pattern imitates the medieval walls, the stained glass mimics the beautiful cathedral and the lilies sends a gentle nod toward the well-known gardens surrounding the castle.FinFun
Arundel Castle overlooks Arundel Lido and provides a gorgeous backdrop for swimming. It is steeped in history. The scales of the tail look like stones in the castle wall! However, they retain that ‘mermaid scale’ shape.
I love that the headstone of the arch says ‘FinFun’, which is a clever way of incorporating the brand into my tail, as well as being quite perfect. A headstone gives support to the whole arch. FinFun gave me so much support for this event in terms of providing tails for the swimmers, the tail for me and the banner!
The Castle also inspired the stained glass window design, which just pops when compared with the stonework scales.
As you might have noticed, FinFun incorporated my 4th generation wedding veil into this custom mermaid tail design. I love this element so much. Nikki thought I was going to cry when I noticed it! [spoiler alert: I didn’t; I was far too stressed about the swim!]
My wedding veil was worn by my great grandmother, my grandmother, my mum and then by me. It has so much meaning and we all wore it in such different ways.
FinFun paired the custom mermaid tail perfectly with the blue bikini and the details around the heels looked amazing when doing handstands.
Whilst out in Las Vegas for some training with FinFun, I couldn’t resist getting photos with another kind of castle – so here it is! This was taken at Excalibur in Las Vegas.
Hands up who wants to see photos of all four generations in the veil??
