The tail section was made from a wire rack used for grilling, and parts of a vegetable steamer. I bent the grilling rack handle to make a "U" shape and spread out the tines. Then I epoxied the steamer parts to the tines of the rack. Last I wove ribbon through the holes in the steamer rack both for artistic reasons and to adhesion. Here are photos of the front and back of the tail.
The feet were much easier. All I had to do was remove the business end from the handle of two spatulas. Husbands are very handy for that sort of thing. Then I glued these to the cigar box, and added some buttons. You can see the feet in this photo.
