That is officially awesome.  With the right pitch, you might even be able to get the whole team to help.

I'll have a tail soon! A friend of mine is having a Halloween/birthday party soon, and I had no idea for what kind of costume I would wear. She suggested that I be an otter! So this past weekend we got together to start making it (not a full fursuit, just a tail, ears, and paws) We got the perfect material, but making everything turned out to be a bit more work than we expected... we half-made a tail, but it didn't turn out too good. Though I looked up some online tutorials and talked to some people, and now I have a better idea on how we can make it. :3 So I'll have one soon!

I might get one eventually. I don't know where I'd wear it, though!
Sewing, like most hobbies, takes time to learn. Good luck, Wydran!

I have a nicely made silver tail with red tip I bought at Dragon*Con. Thankfully it goes with my soon to be made partial werewolf character :D

I really wanted to get one at some point but now really I don't think it is a good idea because I would never wear it. I probably would also look highly silly...My mum and sister still laugh at me about wanting one xD. Plus I don't really want one now, I suppose I've grown out of all that wanting tails and ears and stuff. I think wearing a fursuit would be pretty fun, but I don't think I'd actually buy one.

We ended up using a hot glue gun instead of sewing it because of time constraints :P (seriously we were finishing this like a few hours before the party.)

I've got some pics :) I'm happy with how it turned out.

Tail
Photo gallery with pictures of ears as well

One of the belt loops is sticking out further than the other on the tail since it fell off during the party and we just quickly used the hot glue gun to fix it... XP

If I may make a recomendation: If this is the seams you are talking about, you should go back and sew them when you have the time.
Something I picked up in a few fursuit related communities, is that hotglue does not work well for seams, aside from quick-fixes.

Honestly, I don't think it'd be worth it to go back and sew this one again. It would just be better to make an entirely new one :P this one was made with a short time constraint and it gets the job done, though it's far from perfect. Though yes, if I attempt to make another tail I'll make sure to have more time and try and sew it instead.
