I hope that this is the right place to ask some questions...
Costuming question...
I'm really wanting to make a Grecian Sphinx costume...but only from the waist on down. So basically, the lower half of a cat suit...but sculpted to look very realistic. My main concerns lie in the tail and finding ways to make it move with me as I walk/run/etc., the curvature of the calf/heel -? and the look of the paws. I'm especially interested in making the paws look extremely realistic...with individual toes complete with nails and some hard padding on the bottoms so that when I walk through dust there are large cat paw prints left in the dirt. My plan is to use a short tan fur...something that could easily be found at Wal-Mart or somewhere like that. I've asked around other communities for some advice and haven't recieved much help so far.

Explanation...
I attend alot of Renaissance Festivals as a playtron and I work a Renaissance Festival from time to time with a vendor. I was hoping that I might find some help or suggestions or even, if I'm lucky, someone who might have a pattern or DIY site to send me to.

Any help that you might have to offer would be extremely appreciated.

-Thank you:)
