My very first fox tail arrived today~! Lots of items will be storming in this week I believe lol. I bought this after seeing the recent Popteen scans~(think it might look good on my LV bag too, from pictures of Hollywood celebrities). I bought mine off Ebay from damco, who I REALLY recommend! They're also situated in Canada so shipping was lightning fast. Apparently the items are genuine so I'm assuming it's real fur? Although it was quite cheap though! Mine came out to $18.95 + $6 shipping. They have the most affordable prices and none of the tails go over $30 unlike other sellers.
It's so unbelievably soft! It feels a lot like real fur, but if you squeeze closer to the center it seems fake/stuffed... But then again they would have to remove the tailbone and stuff it or that be kinda scary lol. My cat and dog apparently finds it amusing. They won't stop trying to jump on it~ Dx
Mine's the white one, but I'll definitely be back to buy that gray one I originally wanted. It costs more than this one and I thought I should buy a cheaper one as a "test" first to see if I'd like it. White is pretty much easy to match with clothes too ne? =) Now I wanna get even more. XD It would make a fun collection but all I just need is the gray and I'm set for the season! Can't wait till every other item arrives because I have so many co-ordinations in mind!
Once my mom sees this, she's probably going to freak. She'll be all like, "Why'd you waste money on that??" or say, "Ew..." Then call me a whore. *nods* "Holi tinh" I believe that's how you spell it in Vietnamese? (Huli jing in Chinese) We all know the folklore tales of white fox demons (typically 9-tailed) disguising themselves as beautiful women to seduce men. If you dunno, it's very popular in Japanese and Chinese culture. Especially Hong Kong dramas. XD The term is still used today in Vietnamese/Chinese profanity for calling someone a home wrecker LOL!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huli_jing < Chinese ver. Also explains about one of my fave famous Chinese novels that depicts foxes. "Daji" (Duc Yi in Vietnamese), is the cruel fox spirit. A tale about how a beauty can be the downfall of an empire. It teaches you more about values than a more romantic story like, "Romance of the Three Kingdoms". Also similar to "Journey to the West".
