Vending Machine Springs

Hi! I'm working on my first partial suit... I've been looking at this community for a long time but I didn't have a Livejournal... So I got one ^^

I saw some people break into a vending machine today and steal the springs. It looks like they'd be really really great to make into tail armatures (sp?) But I don't want to steal one, 'cos that'd make me feel really guilty.

But theywould be absolutely perfect for making a springy sorta tail that was thicker than normal... If reinforced, a really springy monkey/lemur/red panda tail.

What else can you use to make a tail armature? I know all about those delrin rods, but I don't really want to work with melted plastic, as my workspace would be really inadequate for that sort of thing. Coathanger wire seems a little too loose, and I think foam might work, but the only foam I can get my paws on is air conditioner foam, and that comes in strips 2.5" thick.

I think that there's an upholstery shop near my house, but the thing is that they NEVER seem to throw out any scraps whatsoever- and I've been watching them for months now.

Help would be muchly appreciated!

Costume Sale

I had some fursuit and period costume stuff I've had for a while, and thought it was time to clear out my closet a little bit.

I would like to sell all of this as one lot but I'd be willing to sell single items... Contact me at threetails (at) gmail (dot) com if you're interested.

BEST OFFER TAKES ALL.

Hiyas. Just thought I'd post some progress pics of a wolf I've been working on for way too long. I'm asking for any general advice anyone wants to toss in my direction. The only plans for it consist of throwing some marginally oversized ears on there and padding up the holes in the back of the head, as well as leveling out the muzzle a bit. Any other suggestions/gripes/slander/information/help/inquiries would be appreciated. :)
