Question Those balls on Mai Shiranui's costume

I've been trying to figure out what to make those two balls out of! The balls that hang down the back of her costume; one's red, the other is white.
I've seen a couple people in Mai costumes in the Picture database, but I'm not sure what to use to make them out of. Painted foam balls? Those clear plastic Christmas ornaments that you paint the inside of?
What works the best?

Thanks for any suggestions! ^_^

I used foam balls covered in fabric. Tried painting them the first time, and it was horrible. X_X Cover. In. Fabric. :P Worked fine. ^^ Had to hallow them out first, though, to stick the tails through...
You can find them in various sizes at any JoAnn's Fabrics or any craft store, really.
