1. What type of fabric should I use for her tail, jumper and boots?
2. How should I go about making her tail?
3. I noticed she has acorn earrings. Would acorn earrings be easy to make for non-pierced ears?
First off, you are my hero for making Squirrel Girl.
As far as fabric goes, check out my images for what I did to make Rocket Raccoon, may be what you are looking for- the short fur used in the gloves and boots was bought in a fabric shop in NYC's fashion district while the longer fur is from fabric.com specifically this one
As for a tail, I'd suggest this tutorial to get you started:
For Squirrel Girl I would use the foam tutorial near the bottom.
