I just bought my first tail and ears, taking my first step into suiting after a long time of internal furry-dom. Starting to wear my fur on the outside :D I got it at a convention, and one of my friends said I stand up straighter when I have my tail on. Its easier, I actually feel more balanced. Like its supposed to be there, and I kind of feel naked with out it. The ears aren't quite right for me, but my tail is <3
FYI-don't know if it's everywhere, but Walmart is selling $20 fursuit heads for halloween. It might be an inexpensive way for someone to start, and see if it's something that they want to persue more in depth? I feel like they could be played with and personalized kind of easily.
