It depends on what you're wearing and what material the ears are made of. For the tail, adding a large snap to a piece of matching felt and sewing the felt to the tail might work. Sew the other part of the snap to another piece of felt, and stitch to your outfit. Or you can sew on a large lobster clasp (the industrial kind, not the jewelry kind), and hook the tail onto a belt loop, or even a hole in a belt.

For the ears, I can't tell if they're made of felt, or something else...

I probably should have mentioned that. They are all made of these felt/fleecey stuff.. I even checked the receipt and the tag thing at the store and it didnt say. I am not exactly good with the whole fabricy stuff :/ I originally wanted faux fur, but they didnt have any in the colors i needed, and not enough time to order it ... But the ears are made of the fleecey stuff and have a craft foam cartilage. I do plan to attach those to a head band as well

Okay. Headband should work just fine. For the tail, snap, clasp, or fabric loop is easiest.
