A follow up to my tutorial on how to make cat ears! I had a few questions about how to attach them to various things, so I made a new tutorial. Hope it's easy to understand! If you have any questions, feel free to ask~

And please tell me if I misspelled anything, ahah.

Okay... I'm gonna cosplay Mickey Mouse so judging by this advice I should sew the ears to the wig...

Do you think that the hairclip technique would work for larger/taller ears, or would they fall over?

Oh thank you for this, I messed up with the hair clips on my Lucy ears/horns (basically looking at this made me realize I took the wrong approach with clips, the hair clips were sewn on the way you would for real hair and not for wig hair) I was worried if they would slip out so now I know how to make that not happen :D

Any advise for attaching it to a hood?

Are you making the hood or do you already have a hood? If you're making it, go with a pattern like this: [link] and sandwich the ears into the seam before you sew. (If you are making a hood and that didn't make sense, lemme know and I'll clarify. :D) But if you're sewing them onto a hood after the fact, try the hood on and make chalk markings where you want the ears to go. I think you could then probably get away with just sewing the ears directly to the outside of the hood without cutting a slit into it. Just make sure to finish your edges. Hm, give me a day or two and I'll update the tutorial with new methods.
