To bulk up the tail of my puppet, I attached a piece of hard foam between where the spine and tail are connected on the armature. I have decided to do it this way because my character will be sitting down for the full duration of the animation, I wanted to make a wider surface so it will be easier for me to tie down my armature when I'm ready to animate. I have applied blue sponge material to the tail and attached it using contact adhesive and I have also refined the shape by cutting back into the sponge to create the shape I want.
