Tail filled with... what?

Got tea?
Beside of foam and stuffing used for making plushies... what else can be used as a filling for a tail? And be not very heavy at the same time?

Live wasps.

Wire armature maybe? It's probably be best for thinner tails but then it could also be somewhat posable!

Honestly foam or stuffing is your best bet when it comes to durability, weight, and aesthetics. Any packing peanut filled tails run the risk of being crushed (loss of shape) and you can't wash a tail with styrofoam in it (possible disintegration).

Good point, do not fill a tail with packing peanuts.

If you are not making any for others but yourself, maybe old socks might work, but I have been wrong before, am I?

large pore (20 or 30 pores per inch) black reticulated foam, laminated to desired thickness with 3M spray adhesive and carved to shape first. Very lightweight.
