View Full Version : Yoshi's Tail

Hi, I apologise if this has already been answered.

So I'm going out on Saturday and I'm dressing as a human-style Yoshi. It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to be presentable. Anyway, I've got the t-shirt, trousers, shoes, hat (gonna put eyes and bumps on it), saddle (just wrapping white fabric around the edge) and soon I'm getting something for the tongue. Might make eggs too :D Anyway, I'm really struggling with the tail. Gonna get fabric that's the same material as the t-shirt, but what I'm really struggling with is getting the shape. What do you think would be the easiest way to shape the tail? Bear in mind I'm on a very low budget, I have to prepare the costume by Friday (yeah, I hit a bit of a snag xD) and it has to be able to fit in a suitcase easily. I'm not sure if stuffing it would work because it probably wouldn't keep the shape.

Thanks for any help you can offer :)

Stuffing it with something soft perhaps? I don't know how big you planned on making it though, so I don't know if it will fit in your suitcase...
