A couple of Halloweens ago I decided I want to be a khajiit and set about trying to figure out how to make a set of ears and a nice tail. The costume still hasn’t come together fully (I’ve got a set of armor I need to finish!) but I am really proud of these pieces, especially the ears! I also documented the process of making them, so I hope it’s helpful for other costumes as well!
The ears are actually pretty simple – just long faux fur sewn to fit a cardboard and wire base! I shaved the faux fur down to give it the right look. I added felt to the inside of the ears, but I’m still not sure about the look. I think I’ll continue alter the inside of the ears. 🙂
The tail is even easier than the ears – it’s essentially just a tube with a rounded tip. I stuffed it with fabric scraps at first, but that turned out to be a little bit heavy for extended wear. I’ve removed most of the stuffing these days and it’s much lighter and still pretty fluffy. 😀
