|As I type, I'm thinking that this should be easy... Hopefully =_=;|
I've pretty much worked out the frame I'll need for the tails, though the only way I can think of getting them to stay up well is to run a few threads of fishing line from the tails, through my costume and attached to some sort of band underneath...
Otherwise, the dress should be easy, there's no styling really for the wig and the hat looks fine too... Contemplating making actual ears though, so that when the inevitable hyper kid tries to make off with my hat, I'll still look in character...
No one is going to recognise me and I will spend the day telling people that I'm NOT a Ninetails gijinka D:
AFTER EXPO UPDATE!
OMFG! This was so much fun to wear! A lot comfier than I was expecting, and easy enough to navigate in, as long as I avoided narrow corridors...
Thanks everyone who took pictures!
Uh... The frills and the like were sewn on in the morningof Expo... And I'm wearing plimsoles... I really want to remake this so it's a better finish and more accurate :D

Dress in Progress (Posted 20th May 2011)
Spent a good day making the dress.
Looks hideous on the hanger, but actually looks really nice when worn :D
...Might go take a worn pic now actually...
Harness (Posted 20th May 2011)
Trying to work out how best to make this bloody harness...
Got a photo of a super quick mock up, which looks like it could work...
Eurgh, this is turning out to be stupidly complicated...
Tail 'tut' (Posted 20th May 2011)
Soo... the tails are done. Ish. One is beyond retarded looking, so I'll have to remake it, but fml I really cba sewing fake fur again right now...
Figured I'd draw a crappy little diagram, in case anyone's interested in how I made the tails.
It's... Kind of based on a rugby ball? Loosely. As in, I haven't seen one in about 5 years.
It's made so that the flat part is on show, whilst the thin part is against my back.
...I am terrible at explaining. If you don't understand the pic, feel free to PM/comment and I'll try to help explain it...
Oh, will also mention, that the long thin bit is generally a lot longer than the other bits...
And for the love of god, please make a calico mock up before you cut the fur!
Oh, and apparently I didn't attach the image, so it's in the post above...
TAILS! DONE! (Posted 19th May 2011)
OMFG THEY ARE DONE!
These took far too long, and I felt like killing myself by the end, but now the tails are done! Well... As done as they can be, given I ran out of stuffing after the first 2...
...It looks like a pile of dead animals...
Taken with my piss poor laptop webcam too ><
Ah well, onwards! To the dress!
Also. Weird demon wing things on the wall. Blame my housemates, they've been there since a house party last year some time...
TAILS!!! (Posted 17th May 2011)
Finally got round to making the tails. All nine of them. It's taking for-freaking-ever.
This pic is a WIP of the main tail.
And OMMFG!! The fur came. And it's too bloody dark. But I have no time or money to get more, so I shall have to live with it...
Wig ^___^ (Posted 3rd May 2011)
I actually bought this wig months ago... But only just got round to uploading a pic of it?
I REALLY like it, though it's a little sleek perhaps? I might try feathering it, though I'm reluctant as it's so nice...
Though the back is a bit thin, but it's all fine as I'll be wearing a stupid hat :D
On the subject of the hat, I've tried a couple of mock ups, and it's proving to be a pain int he arse D: But it looks so simple! Mostly, I'm having trouble getting the ear shapes to look nice, but I guess I can work it out later...
As you can see, I've gone for quite a blonde wig, rather than yellow, which is all part of my plan to make it a more natural-looking costume... God I hope it works.
Petticoat (Posted 1st April 2011)
Just spent an entire day making a net petticoat... It looks, horrendous so I'll try and redo again later...
Currently trying to work out the exact shapes I'll need for the tails, so I can work out exactly how much fake fur I'll need... It's pretty tricky...
