Perky Cat Tail Tutorial by Yume-ka Perky Cat Tail Tutorial by Yume-ka
Hello!

Its been a while since I last uploaded a tutorial. I'm working on a secret costume for Sunday of Katsucon. So I'm taking the opportunity to show you how I'm making my tail stick up! =)

Its not much, but something of an update. I'm planning to film more complicated tutorials later on (pictures are only good for simple steps).

Anyways, enjoy!

PS. Guess my secret cosplay (ohohoho)

Can I use the same technique to make a different kind of tail?

Of course!  You can make any type of tail with this.  You either just need more stuffing or less stuffing or longer wire, etc.

If I wasn't able to get the spare material, since I don't know if I could, do you think wrapping lots of masking tape could help? Looks like a great tutorial though thank you :)

do you mean wrap the duct tape around the wire?  It might be less bendable that way but if you don't want your tail to bend or keep it in a certain shape, then sure =)

Whereabouts could you attain the wire? I don't think a wire coat-hanger is going to be long enough :/
(this tutorial is most helpful^^)

I can also do this to make a dog tail for my own cosplay!!! Just need to make it shorter and figure out a way for the tail to look more like little dog's tail...

Yume-ka Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2013
Yeah for sure! Not sure what type of dog, but I would use long fur and make the tail thicker with more stuffing, and have a pointy tip.

Yep! It's kind of like a cross between a pug, pom, and chihuahua tail.

This is an interesting way to do a cat tail... I like how it's bendable and "perky" as your title suggests!
I may use this tutorial to add a tail to my Happy cosplay. I'm glad I found this!
