Ninetails from the anime Okami literally has nine tails. The creature is an antagonist of the series, and cosplayer Shelle-chii put the costume together in order to compliment a cosplay her friend was doing. She enjoyed Okami anyway, and the build offered her the chance to try out new processes. She says:
This cosplay was a lot of firsts for me, and I learned so much from the whole process. It was the first cosplay collaboration I did with another cosplayer where we both worked on the cosplays, not just our individual ones. It was also the first time officially competing in a masquerade, and we actually won two awards for our workmanship and stage.
It took about 150+ hours to make, a lot of the time went to making the tail tips, which were made out of yarn that was brushed out. The masks are definitely my favorite part of the cosplay, especially the one on my head. That mask was my first time ever working with worbla, and it turned out amazing! The tails weigh about 35 pounds, it was a lot to carry around for the whole day, but I loved having so many tails!
