i use floral wire to shape all my pokemon ears (and tails if needed: espeon and pikachu tails have floral wire skeletons). they hold up fantastically under the weight of fur fabric (and in the case of my ears, constantly running into doorframes, walls, and people........ oTZ), but my pikachu tail needed some extra support due to the sheer size of the bloody thing lmfao-- about 75cm tall and around 50cm in width. you can see it starting to sag in my avatar D: i, unfortunately, have no idea what gauge the wire is as when i first started i could only find wire in this gauge so i never bothered to take notice. i've also thrown away the label of the wire i used for my latest pokemon cosplay oTZ
i do have some 20 gauge floral wire on hand though. they're not as thick as the ones i normally use but they're decent enough for the next set of ears i'm making. i'd suggest something slightly thicker for eevee. (:
