Wearing a tail

LemonJayde

No wait I hate you
I have two tails, one feline and one canine, but I wear them only at home or around *accepting* friends.

uh oh stinky
i have a tail that i dig wearing, but it's so poorly attached to it's chain that i'm worried someone would tug it right off. it's real fur, and the chain is looped through the hide and i've had it just rip before. i want to reinforce it but i don't exactly know how without possibly causing balding of the fur. sadface.

i have a rainbow tail and i love waging it as i walk. ^_^ i have my tail on every day i can, just for fun and to see what ppl say lol.
 
I have a big fluffy raccoon tail that I only wore to MegaCon this year. It's really too big to wear every day.
I'm ordering another one on pawstar soon and I might wear that one around.
I did go to this huge fireworks event last Tuesday and I wore my ears. Lots of looks, and I loved it. Haha.

I fully support dressing the way you want and expressing yourself as long as you realize you will be calling attention to yourself and more often than not it won't be positive attention.

Go ahead and wear a tail, ears, full on fursuit but don't cry and moan when you receive dirty looks or mean comments when you knowingly put yourself in a situation where you know these things may happen.

With that said I have worn tails in public but I also have a thick enough skin to ignore the negative a attention it sometimes generates.

I read pawstar as pornstar.. although wearing your tail to some fireworks show sounds fun

I think it's guys that receive the most flak though for it. at least that's what I hear.
 
I wouldn't even know where to get one. So, no I don't have one. And if I did, I really don't think I'd wear it in public. I mean, it'd be pretty amusing to do but I have enough issues with social anxiety as it is. There's no need to add one incredibly odd looking accessory to my attire that most people will just consider a very strange fashion choice.

I went to a furry meet-up today and some of the participants wore tails, didn't get any rude comments at all and I didn't notice anybody staring at them.

I have a flap hat with ears, a mane and a unicorn horn on it that I wear to my ski races and other sporting events.
It's pretty widely accepted, more so than me wearing a tail would be, methinks.

Must..see

but wearing a tail to a ski race I think would either make it harder or would get in the way

Where do you even get these things?

Hot Topic. I kid you not. Saw 'em today (it's funny that I found this thread). Maybe that's why many of you saw kids with 'em.

Only 2 styles, gray and burnt gray, not counting those with backpacks (so the 4 out of every 3 furry foxes will feel left out).

I gotta agree with you here. Every time i walk in there, they won't stop bothering me or my friend to buy something when we just wanna look around.

hot topic tails are really cheaply made and not worth the money

Oh gawd don't get me started on hot topic. They just take anything that is remotely popular that might fit into their little poser punk style and sell it at ridiculous prices to kids that think their hot topic psuedo goth / punk clothes make them unique.

If you really want a tail there are tons of people here on FA that will make you a high quality tail for a reasonable price ( including myself /shameless plug.)

I'd like to wear a tail for fun but I just moved back with my dad who havent seen me for 2 years, So I wouldn't just because of other personal reasons too.

I would imagine that be somewhat awkward as well.

I don't have a proper tail yet, but when I do, I'll definitely wear it a lot. The only one I have is a multicoloured bird tail that is really fragile and cheap that I made myself out of fake feathers, but I love it. If it was stronger, I'd wear it more often.

Ya know, you COULD always wear one when nobody is around just for the fun of it. At least that's what i'd do if i had one. I have some kind of belief that it would be fun.

I used to tie lengths of material around the top of my trousers and pretend it was a tail when nobody was at home.

I have a short-ish tail I never wore. Next AC I'll probably have the balls or lack of self respect to don it.
