I was wondering how to make a good tail that is able to keep its shape but is still flexible enough to sit on. And also it will snap back to its original shape when you get up. I recently made a tail using a delrin rod. It looks nice and keeps its shape vary well but is too rigid to sit on. You would have to sit on something without a back or turn a chair backwards. I'm also afraid that if it bends too far that the rod might break.
I saw some pictures of Brokken's fursuit (the blue one) and that tail looked like it worked great (I love that suit by the way :) ). Could anyone tell me how that tail was made, or any that were made in a similar way?
I also have a question about moving jaws. I just can't figure out how to attach the fur around the back of the mouth to let the mouth open and close. The last time I tried it the fur wouldn't stretch far enough for the mouth to open :(. Does anyone know of a good way to attach the fur around the back of the mouth to prevent this problem?
