Costume Needs a Tail? .......... (See Step #7 for Ears!)
Find yourself making a costume that needs a tail? Many costumes need one, but there aren't really any good options for attaching a tail. There are lots of pinned-on droopy tails, but not many stand-up, perky, be proud tail options - until now!
This instructable will show how to construct, and more importantly attach a rigid, stand-up tail to the wearer of a costume. In addition, with this method you don't need to cut a hole in the costume itself... Lets be real; who wants to cut up their nice gray sweats to dress up as a mouse when you don't have to!
When there's a cool solution to a problem you have to figure that the solution involves magnets and so does this one. A belt with a magnet and steel plate (the mount) is worn under your costume and the tail with a steel washer is held in place on top of the costume by the magnet.
