Wearing a tail in public
« on: March 27, 2008, 12:59:38 pm »
What the subject says.  I'm wearing it right now, sitting here in the library.  Nobody's commented on it yet, and that's just fine with me.  X3

It scared the crap out of me when I was about ten feet from my house, but I'm better now.  I think I'll have to start wearing my tail out more often.   :)
Do I have a motive?  Or am I just screwing with your head?  Ahahaha, I'll never tell!

That's great! I'm trying to find myself a tiger tail. I have a tiger hat with ears on it's way :) I don't think I'll take either of them off :D Maybe I'll get some paws... too (:

I'll be scared too, but the more we do it the easier it will get not only for us, but others too :D

That occurred to me, since there's a distinctive lack of furriness in the doomy city in which I live.  (I saw someone in a mascot costume walking down a prominent street at midday once, but that's another thing entirely)  Maybe I can persuade others to 'take the plunge', as it were.

P.S., I'm wearing a grey stripey cat tail, but I made a white tiger tail and ears for someone.  -------> http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff81/Ormspryde/Commissions/Tiger%20Tail%20and%20Ears/earsfinal.jpg http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff81/Ormspryde/Commissions/Tiger%20Tail%20and%20Ears/tigercollarfinished.jpg http://i242.photobucket.com/albums/ff81/Ormspryde/Commissions/Tiger%20Tail%20and%20Ears/tigertailandearsprogress.jpg

It was for a cosplay thing, but I got paid for it.  :3

I love them! Especially the tiger tail :D I'm not a white tiger, though  :P
I'm still wondering whether to get paws too... Dunno if I'd wear them or not =/ Probably would as it's so cold and miserable in lovely ol' Britain. I have my hat with ears on in the post :D

That's the one thing that people from different countries can agree on; we both like to wear tails, ears, and other furry things.

awesome  :)

First time I wore my tail in public was great and I had a bunch of questions thrown my way (naturally) mainly from college tutors

You'll get more attention if you wear it around friends who know nothing of your furriness  :D

I need a tail too. It's hard to find a mouse tail though, mostly you just see foxes and cats.  :'(

Wish I had a tail too. maybe IF I get on with CP Rail, I'll be able to afford to get one.
What am I being being blamed for now, even though I didn't do it?

I'd love to wear my tail in public... But as it happens I just can't muster up the courage to do so. I'm a pretty shy person, and don't like drawing attention to myself. Maybe I'm just being paranoid?

Awh Luku, I'd say that was normal, really.... but once you've mustered the courage once it should become easier :) If more and more furs get the courage others will likely be more inclined to show off their tails in public, too :D

I've been trying quite hard to get a tail for a couple months now (no one ever repsonds; not the big sites or the indviduals, it's a little frustrating). Once I do get it, I was initially thinking of just wearing it to cons, but I've seen a couple threads like this one ehre and there, so I'm thinking about going out in public with it.

Thing is, I'm a lot like Luku, and I'm pretty nervous about doing it. My main concern wouldn't be jeers, stares, anything like that; I'm just worried someone would come up and take it (and I'm got the basic geek/nerd body, so I wouldn't be able to do anything to stop them), and then I'd be out my tail (and possibly more). If I ever started wearing it (once I get it, of course) it would start at college, but I'm still fairly nervous (though I here folk in San Fransisco are a tad more accepting than others).

They got tufts... but they've also got some excellent ears, so all is not lost (man, I love Welsh Corgis, they're so cute :))

Yeah-- but ears-- especially corgi ears-- stick out a bit much-- and I don't know if you know anything about Bakersfield California, but it isn't exactly known for its openness to the abnormal. The town prides itself on its involvement in country music, just to give you an idea.

Nah, I know the place (Mom was born there, Grandparents still live there. In fact, they had a Welsh for a while). Personally, I think the town could use some spicing up (it's just so dull).

When I get my tail and ears, I think I very well may start wearing them out. The funny thing is, my school's mascot is a wolf...so if I wore it around school, people may just think I'm showing school spirit heh. I'll see though. I know I'll definitely wear it out over the summer.

Finally finished and confirmed my order, and my tail should be ready by the end of May (I'm on a bit of a waiting list at the moment before they get started). I can't wait :)

I'll probably wear it in college, maybe not right away but eventually (probably after I make sure everyone knows I'm a Furry. Or I'll just do it out of the blue, blindside them a bit). I am a bit worried about it, though; what's the worst reaction anyone's every gotten? I mean, has anyone ever tried to take it or anything when you're wearing it?

I saw two people wearing them in a mall (idk if they were furry or gothic though, they had the whole slipknot+chains thing going at the same time), some little kid ran by and pulled the girls tail then took off running.

I didn't say anything to them but I couldn't help but laugh at the look on the girls face when the kid did that.


Other than  that i've not seen anything bad actually happen to tail-wearers.






I mean honestly whats the worst that could happen? unless your in an area where your safety is in serious danger... people normally won't do more than ask questions (or play pranks)

Do it out of the blue, first reactions are awesome. :) To bad certain people give the best reactions. :(
That just my input, do what you want. ;)

I'll do it out of the blue. I can handle some pranks and whatnot, and I haven't been really heavily bullied as it is now (not exactly a high mark on the social totem pole), so a tail shouldn't matter. As long as nothing happens to it to the point where I need to get a new one (getting it to begin with has been a strangely difficult hassle), I'm cool. Can't wait for college to start now ;)
