The tail is 18" long, and will be stitched to the back of the hoodie; it's not going to droop down. The body will be done in a style similar to the Glaceon one I made, with the contrast sleeve cuffs and zipper. http://animeisha.deviantart.com/gallery/7504713#/d2i2d07
As for my question, does anyone know a good source for circular tag protectors? I'm assuming there is such a thing. The tag I'm wanting to cover specifically is the 1:1 Eevee tag, which is about 3.5" in diameter. Even keeping it on a shelf, I'm concerned about wear and tear (and dust).
