Ive seen alot of questions about coontails both here&on the website. if i were to do my own coontails,id use hair extensions,why? caus' youd have to be extremely lucky for them to come out the way you planned. do you wanna leave the house with gone wrong coontails? probably not(; they dont have to be real either! i think they turned out looking awesome,let me know if this helped anyone! -EFFY♥!
