So I'm making a kitty tail for a Nyanpire cosplay, but I've hit a snag.  I want to make it poseable though I'm not sure what I should use to make it so.  I thought about using wire but I'm not sure what type I would use and that wouldn't poke a hole in the fabric.  Any ideas?

I use aluminum wire and bend a tight curve at the end so it isn't pointy.  1/4 inch or smaller wire, you can double it for stiffness.
