"After watching the anime, which is incredible by the way, I absolutely fell in love with #Tohru she was so adorable but very protective over the people she cares about, and I could definitely relate to that.
My mom had to help me out with sewing because I'm terrible at it and the tail was definitely a challenge but it was lots of fun!! I had to cut out 217 individual scales from craft foam, wrap each one in material, then hot glue them individually to the base tail. I spent 4-5 hours a day for about 3 months working on it and the tail ended up being seven and a half feet long and weighs between 7 - 10 lbs.
My sweet husband Gonzalo was kind enough to carry my tail around the con for me 😘! Without him I definitely wouldn't have been able to maneuver around the con or wear it for as long as I had, and I wouldn't have been able to make the tail the way that I wanted if he hadn't had carried it for me. I wanted the tail to be flexible for photos, which i wouldn't have been able to achieve had I put wheels on it or rigged up a harness so it wouldn't drag, but having my husband to carry it allowed me to do so." --- @JBOO313
