Espeon tail-can anyone help?

I'm not quite sure how to go about making one. Can anyone give advice to someone who has no idea what she is doing?

My problem is that the tail forks towards the end. How would I do that?

Espeon Picture

I am making a half-human half-Pokemon version. I have this in mind. Should I secure the tail to a belt underneath the dress?

I'm new to this, and I'd really appreciate any help. >_<;

Yeah, I would secure the tail to a belt and have it pokeout formunder the dress,or cut a hole in the back for the tail to poke through. Sewing the tail to the dress itself will cause a lot of pulling and sagging.

As for making the tail, the easiest method would be cutting out a Y shape from two pieces of flannel or faux fur, or whatever fabric you choose and sew them together. You can insert stuffing and a wire to help the tail hold it's shape.
