A word from Jody, the 'Fox and Gator' costume creator:
My daughter loves animals and wanted to be a fox this year. I made the mask from cardboard and paper-mache'd it. Then painted it like a fox before gluing fur onto it. Fur attached to top and went down her back and ponytailed into her hair. Tail is stuffed around a wire and attached to a "belt" around her waist so it did not weigh down her costume.
My son is an alligator made from a green sheet that I cut out mimicking footy pajamas. Added a hood and started tail at base of hood to drag onto floor behind him. Mask was cardboard and paper-macha, painted and marbles for eyes, buttons for nostrils. Mask attached to top of hood like a visor.
