Okay, so I'm having some serious issues making a tail for my Leafeon gijinka. Here's a ref:
I'd like the tail to stand up a bit like in the pic, and maybe even curve a bit, so... naturally, the first thought was wire. I tried a fabric base with wire, but that was an EPIC fail - the fabric is all wrinkled, and won't stand up. It just sort of... flops over, and can't support itself.
My next option is craft foam with wire in the middle. It's a bit thicker, so it should support itself a bit better. Do you think that would work?
I'm also not sure how to attach the tail to the back of my costume yet... the zipper goes all the way down past where I'd like the tail to sit, so I can't exactly sew it onto the dress, nor can I really bring it through from under it. (That probably didn't make any sense. XD) Thoughts?
Thanks in advance!
