ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Kigu sells furrie fashions -- animal onesies and strap-on animal tails, including some rather lovely dinosaur numbers. The tails run £30, the suits are £40. The tails have "ultra-lifelike tail movements."

I didn’t know they had re-branded as Kigu. I guess that’s what happens when I can’t make a con for the last 18 months.
From what I can see on the site, this really isn’t “furry” stuff. More like animal-themed pajamas.
She could poke a guy’s eye out with that thing.
Wait, if they were “ultra-realistic” wouldn’t they mess with our sense of balance? That is what most bipedal creatures use/d their tails for, if i remember correctly.
You have to keep your spine horizontal, after that you’re laughing.
I wonder if Adam Savage would get the joke if someone shipped him one of their squirrel tails.
I always wanted pants with a tail to make as uncomfortable to sit as possible!
I wonder if they make these with a sissy sleeve?
If they made the tail EEG controlled, they’d go pretty well with the Neurowear Nekomimi. Too bad they don’t have a cat or wolf tail.
I dunno, as someone who’s part of furry community I hate to see things like this turned into a commodity. People who buy these, buy them on a whim and it just has less meaning then.
Yeah, they probably aren’t even getting off on it, the bastards.
Behold!!! Now the snake people can move among us with their tails out and look uh……. well…… semi-normal….. I guess……. As normal as a human with a tail looks anyhow……… Yeah, it’s all part of the plan see……..
And on the flip side… http://bad-dragon.com/ (NSFW)
Would I be right in guessing that the site features dragons with big human-style “tails”?
Um… it features a variety of… anthropomorphic anatomical recreations… of many species and sizes.
There is a US company that also produces the suits like Kigu does, they are at http://www.bunnywarez.com
hmm… there tails look fairly standard. I wonder if they actually did something innovative for movement or if it’s just a marketing claim.
