cat ears, paws and tail
I'm wanting to make my Sasuke outfit with cat ears paws and a tail which I can add and remove when I want, anyone got any tips on making any of the above?

I'm not sure how to add costumes to threads but on my profile there's a picture of how I want the ears to look, if that helps at all.

Thanks Xauriga

Ooo that's one of my favourite fanarts of Sasuke! ^-^

I made removable ears and tails for my Ritsuka cosplay. I basically made the ears and then weaved a kirby grip in and out of the bottom of the ears - I only weaved it about 3 times and it was very secure. You can position them anyway you like this way =]

Another way you could do it is by gluing the ears onto a headband, that way the ears will always be perfectly in position rather than having to fiddle around with them - you can see the headband though but if your not as fussy as me then this may be the best method haha!

For removable tail... I used a safety pin, simple as that

Paws are self explanatory, just make them like gloves which you can slip on and off.

thanks,

for the ears I was thinking a headband.

but to make them I wasn't so sure was thinking cloth of some sort over cardboard or something

I had also thought of the safety pin for tail but not actually sure how to make the tail it's self my friend made a tail for her Naruto outfit could ask her about that. (completly forgot she did that till now )

gloves I figured just a normal pair of gloves and attach nails to the end like Inuyasha's nails but no idea where to get any.

thanks again, I have quite I few ideas of how to make them hopfully I can have it ready for May expo

Hmm, for ears there's two methods. Depends if you want them to move or not? I personally kept it simple and made still ears because if I made moving ones you'd see the string because I rolled up my sleeves...

Simple non-moving ears:
Basically it was two triangular pieces of fur sewn together with a tiny piece of chicken wire inside it to keep it's shape. Pink felt sewn on as well. Attach it to whatever~ [You don't have to have chicken wire, I just had that handy! You can use anything from cardboard, craft foam, etc]

Moving ears:
I THINK this is how you make it anyway. Make the ears the same way you normally would, at the top of the ears install some kind of weight and attach it to a piece of string which runs down the back of your head and through your sleeve to your hand. Then when you pull the string the ears fly up x]

Tail:
Very long rectangular piece of fur, sewn together and then turn it inside out for the furry bit. This takes patience to turn it to the furry side, a LOT of patience >_>; [Mine was fairly narrow that's why]

Paws:
Seems like you have your own ideas for it already =]
You can get fake nails from any beauty shop or even Claires! If you don't particularly want to go in though, as a female friend haha!

Thanks Crystalneko

this will really help when I go to make it ^_^

Claire's is fun to go in especially when the woman give you weird looks for trying on the glasses and hats with your friends. ^_^

thanks again Xauriga
