SO, next step in the costume is making the feet and the tail. I've never done either of these things before, but at least for the tail portion, I'm desperate to avoid what I call "Perpetual Cone-Ass Syndrome". What Cone-Ass Syndrome is, is when people use stuffed tails for dragons, or anything other then a feline or canine and the tail just.... sticks out off the butt awkwardly. I personally really hate the look of this. SO I went to Home Depot and bought a.... I'm not really sure what the heck it is, but it was perfect. My father says it's metal tube / piping for putting wires underground (just Googled and apparently it's called "electrical metal conduit"). It's still quite light, it has realistic movement for a tail, AND has enough weight to it so it wont stick out oddly (it will hang naturally with it's own weight, yet still flow and move with my own movements). I plan on cutting out foam rings and sliding them up the tubing into place (leaving small gaps) to give the tail more volume and taper off properly, then placing my fabric over top. I'm hoping this works out, again, I have no idea what I'm doing T-T.
As for the feet, I think I've pretty much got that figured out, just some foam toes on a pair of shoes, then duct tape, then place my fabric over top, and paint on my scales to match the face / belly plates on the rest of the costume.
Here's to hoping it will all work out!
