A London-based company creates wagging Dog, Tiger and even Dinosaur tails for customers and cosplayers alike.
Charlene Shoben, a.k.a The Master Tailer, uses her creative skills and craft in order to supply a very unique and niche market.
Working out of her London-based studio, the 32-year-old handmakes a vast variety of animal tails from the animal kingdom and fantasy, that her human customers can wear out and about.
From fluffy dog and fox tails, to long slinky tiger and cheetah tails to even scaly dragon and devil tails, there is no tail that Charlene and her crew can’t bring to life.
To add further authenticity, they are remote controlled, allowing the owner to wag and curl their tail at their wish.
Charlene said: “I’ve always wanted a tail, and I think that’s pretty common!
“We all dress up with tails as a child, so I thought I could do a little better than a bit of fur on some elastic, so I designed an animatronic system that could be adapted to all sorts of creatures!
“There’s nothing more magic than something you’ve made springing to life at the touch of a button. I love it.”
But who are Charlene’s clientele that want to morph into tail-wearing creatures and what is the allure?
Charlene said: “Our tails are worn by cosplayers, party people, festival goers and Furries.
“You’re all grown up and serious but your tail is doing the naughty stuff.
“It’s your frisky side and it’s immediately read by others as a window to your mood.
“I honestly believe that inside everyone there is a ‘tailer’ wanting to come out to play.”
