Tail question!
So, I'm making a Meowth cosplay. ^^ I've made the tail and curled it into the shape I want but I have a problem - the tail keeps on falling down and not staying upright. The curl is fine, it's just that the actual tail keeps flopping to the side - I can't walk around a con holding a tail and I don't want to lose the tail completely. Any ideas on how to make it stay upright?

have y tryed putting stiff wire throughout the whole tail????
the stiffer the wire the better it should stay up.

how exactly are you wearing your tail? It might just mean that you either need to shorten the tail ever so slightly and remake the loop that you attach your tail to the belt with. this generally holds a tail higher, and remaking the loop could helpt if it's not completely centre

Sewing part of the tail to your top is one way (as long as the top isn't really stretchy. Or put a small hole in the back of the top and sew a ribbon to the tail which you can thread through the hole and tie round your body under the top.

The other is to make a tripod effect with the wire so one leg goes up the tail and the other two sit against the back of your waist, maybe through belt loops, then as long as the two horizontal bits are attached to you, the tail one will always stick upwards.
