The tail is made from sections of balsa wood, jointed with fabric hinges, covered with shiny lycra and detailed with painted plastazote shapes. It is mounted to a belt using the base of an old CD holder.
The belt fastens slightly above the hips of the performer, and the costume hangs over the belt to hide it.
Dance Wi' The Deil will be happening next Saturday, 29th October, as part of Greenock's halloween festival Galoshans. Come along and say hello.
