Neko Ears and Tails

Neko Ears and Tails Definitions:
All store slurls updated by my friend Kal Kayo in November 2011 (I wish SL stores didn’t move around so often!) ^_^

Scripted / Interactive Tails: These allow other avatars in Second Life to interact with your tail.  If they click on it, they’ll see a message you’ve chosen (i.e., “back off or I’ll bite!”), or get a menu that lets them “pet, pull, stroke,” etc.

HUD: Short for “heads-up display.”  This is an item you wear along with your tail. When it’s worn, it brings up a display window on your Second Life view screen (visible only by you).  This window contains buttons that allow you to customize your ears/tail, such as choosing a color, what state of mind you’re feeling (angry, sassy, romantic), and sometimes even what type of accessory you’d like to wear.

Menu-Driven: When you click on a menu-driven tail, it brings up a blue “menu window,” which contains any number of variables, depending on what the tail designer packed in there… including color-change, texture change, resizing, and sometimes more.

Note: If one of the slurls below is outdated, please email me to let me know (stores move around in Second Life ALL the time!).

Free (or nearly free) Sets:

AdiCat (<- SL Marketplace link) has a free fluffy Black Neko tail with a strapped band, menu-controlled actions, and touch interactions. Want the full Monty? She also offers an ENTIRE “Punk” Neko set for FREE — containing wiggling ears, a short hair interactive tail, grunge boots, arm straps, and a couple of shirts, all located here.

c.B. Neko Works, a new store by chriz Breck, offers a very nice Neko ears and tail set for FREE. Both are nicely scripted with movement and color changing ability. An easy to use HUD controls their behavior. Multiple copies inside the box attach to with different points, making these tails an easy, right out of the box wearing experience.

MechaKitty offers a free Neko starter kit that includes ears, a tail, and some Neko sound/gestures.  Look for a small wooden barrel in one corner of the store.

SparrowCat has several different colors of (fluffy) tail and ear sets to choose from, including a pink one for free, a chocolate + blond one for just $1L, and the rest are just $10L on SL Marketplace (see description down below).

If you send a very nice IM (or notecard) to Isobel Gustafson, she will be happy to send you a free cyberpunk ear and tail set upon request!

Cheap Tail: (you know I had to write that…)

Looking for an affordable-but-cool cyberpunk neko tail? A store called Accessory Bone has a “Receptacle Tail” comprised of fiber optic cables with glowing electricity moving from top to bottom. If you more of a basic tail but with a few more bells and whistles than the free tails on the grid, Psychotic Neko has a few Neko tails for $99L that include various accessories, twitch, mood, and chat scripts, depending on which tail you choose. Store owner Obyri Nightfire says to keep an eye out for new stuff getting moved into a discount area soon!  Meanwhile Adi Cat Designs has several excellent HUD-controlled tails with voice control, ten color options, and three position settings, all for $75L or $80L depending on your accessory choice… found here, or here or here on her SL Marketplace store.

If you want an entire starter package, try K&L’s Snow Kitty Outfit by Kiku Yokosuka. This package includes custom skin, shape, neko eyes, hair, twitchy ears, fluffy tail with a knit bow, Neko paws, legwarmers, three different tops, shorts, skirt, bra and panties, a necklace, and a candycane to hold in your mouth — all for just $50L. Talk about the ultimate Neko starter package!

>(O.o)< on Mew Island (Fa Nyak)

Sold: Sculpted ears and tails, each sold separately (her old non-sculpted ears are also still available for a lower price… and although “old,” they are still quite nice!)
HUD: No, but if you click the ears and tail, you can change twitch (old ears) or color (new ears).  Note: new sculpted ears do NOT twitch… however the old ears twitch randomly in some of the most expressive positions I’ve seen, including an adorable “folded back” position; tails feature very smooth movements.
Tail Fur: Shorthair
Colors: Fa’s new sculpted ears come with a color-change script that allows you to choose tan, black, white or brown from one set of ears, all with flesh-colored insides. The older ears come in medium brown or white (however they can be copied and tinted to any color you choose, so technically there’s no limit!). Updated tails come in all sorts of new colors (with a click-to-change-color menu), including: dark brown, golden tan, white, black with a white tip, tan with a brown tip, white with a black tip, dark brown with a lighter brown tip, plus a bunch of cool striped versions with various combinations of white, brown, tan, and black.
Accessories: None… just pure, plain and simple
Additional Comments: One of my favorite ears in SL because they’re worn by my favorite person in SL. ❤

Four sets of tails await you here:

Accessories like this make me wish this store made more Neko accessory belts! Oh, and the ears come in your choice of two silver studs arrangement… more or less studs depending on your preference. Colors come three to each pack, packs include: blacks and whites, blacks, blondes, browns, reds, and you can get a fatpack of all colors for 50% off.

Xmas Furry Tail: When you feel like Christmas any time of the year, this very fluffy white tail is streaked with bits of red like a candy cane, and comes in three different accessory styles: a red bow with holly, a red bow with snowflakes, or a red bow with candy canes. Comes in a handy gift-giving box…

Organic: This very fluffy, dark brown tail features ropes and a nailed teddy on the tail wrap… it’s located in the room *across* from the Neko area, on the same wall as all the other “Organic” outfit pieces.

Additional Comments: The older sets are located upstairs in the “Neko” area of the store. The new sculpted ears and tail sets are in the lobby (at the moment), complete with a demo option.

AdiCat’s Xcite-Compatible Tails:
I don’t think you could possibly squeeze any additional features onto the following AdiCat tail/ear sets. They include fully functional tail-collar scripts, male and female scripted, approximately 600 color options for the tail, outer ear and inner ear, HUD/voice control, multiple ear/tail positions and movements, and original animations, including a hiss function. I’ve heard Neko refer to these as the best BDSM tails, “done tastefully.” Here are the accessories:

– Little Pet Neko (Xcite): A fluffy tail with silver chains, padlocks and a heart; one ear has a tag you can change to say 1 of 6 phrases. This is a sub set that interacts with the “Feline Fetish” set.

– Getty Up Neko (Xcite): A large, absolutely adorable sculpted mouse sits at the top of this fluffy tail, wearing a black cowboy hat and a coil or rope by his side; ears have a spur on one and rope on the other.
– Bad Kitty (Xcite): This shorthair tail features jungle cat textures (tiger, cheetah, cougar, leopard, panther and more) in addition to the 600 color options. Its accessories feature two crossed blades (which are DCS/CCS compatible so you can draw them with the built-in attack animation), and silver metal coils. Ears have silver chain dangles.
– Bone Collector (Xcite): This shorthair tail features jungle cat textures (tiger, cheetah, cougar, leopard, panther and more) in addition to the 600 color options. It’s accessorized with multiple sculpted skulls wrapped in leather; ears have a miniature skull and crossbones hanging from one, and a skull “chain” on the other.

Additional Comments: When you come to the main Aluinn store (which sells all sorts of cool jewelry), look for the side room under the “Shattered” sign… that’s where you’ll find all the Neko stuff. Be sure to walk all the way into the room and turn a full circle to see everything. I love how this designer includes plain/decorated and fluffy/short hair options in each package. Be sure to check out the extra fluffy sets at the back of the store that come with clothing and paw boots.

Additional Comments: You don’t often see animal print tails, or colorful house-cat tails… this is one store that has them both. Each package gives you 8 sets of ears, 2 tails, and a HUD… but I was unable to tell how each of those 8 ears are different (size or accessories?) and whether the 2 tails are different size or simply “with accessories” and “without”…? The vendor says a “full natural” set is included (guessing that means no accessories). Anyone who has bought one of these packages and knows the details, please feel free to drop me an email and enlighten us all… he he.

Comments: This store makes custom avatars, as well as Neko ears/tail sets to match each avatar (or you can just buy their ears/tails separately for your current avatar of course). If you buy two Neko Avatar sets, you get a third set free. Just contact Aeon Twine after purchasing with your purchase history records, and let him know your choice.

Cobrahive (Chikane Kaligawa) neko items have sadly been discontinued

CK: Curious Kitties (Ameshin Yossarian)

Sold: As best as I can tell (and I wandered around the store for nearly an hour looking), Curious Kitties no longer sells Neko tails and ears separately (replaced, like so many former Neko stores, by the latest craze of elf bits). Neko bits are now sold as part of an avatar package, which includes either a feral “house cat” skin (and shape, eyes, hair, etc.) or their newer “Khalaji Kitty Avatar,” which includes lovely sculpted (and pierced) ears, and a shorthaired tail, along with matching skin, shape, eyes, hair, HUD to control the kitty parts, and loincloth (a full avatar package; parts not sold separately). These avatars come in a golden tan color, a blue grey color, and a snow white color (with leopard spots).
HUD: Yes for movement control
Tail Fur: Shorhair
Colors: Depends on the avatar package you purchase (see above)
Accessories: Piercings on the ears; tails are plain

De La Soul (Lerochelle Destiny)

Sold: Tails
HUD: No, but tails are flexi and twitch
Tail Fur: Fluffy long hair
Colors: Pretty much any color you can imagine, including 15 natural colors; 10 highlighted colors (from white to brown); 20 tipped colors (including reds, blacks, blues, golds, pinks, purples, and browns); 5 iced colors (lovely pastels); 20 Funkie colors (vivid colors in every shade of the rainbow); and 4 Miscellaneous colors (gotta see em for yourself).
Accessories: No
Additional Comments: Demo available.  VERY large and fluffy.  Record number of tail colors.

DemonKitties (Misseuro Chau): also check out her SL Marketplace store
Sold: Tails and matching ears
HUD: No; click for movement menu
Tail Fur: Fluffy and short hair — both included in each package
Colors: Black, White, Brown and Blond
Accessories: Two tails currently: 1) Graffiti tail features colorful paint-spattered fur texture with several spray cans chained to the top of the tail; Black widow tail features a blood-spattered fur texture with a silver chain and spiked band at the top of the tail, atop whichw two menacing black widow spiders are dueling.
Additional Comments: I discovered this store when I went looking for a Neko tail with graffiti / paint spatters for my Banksy story. Fell in love with the spraycan details… and when the designer told me that VirtualNeko was the first site she ever visited from sl, I was ever so honored…! As of 2014: Missie has marked 90% of her items to HALF PRICE!

~DF~ Love of Music (Daryl Darkfire)
Sold: Tails only (ears coming soon!)
HUD: None; I’m assuming these tails twitch, though the vendor does not indicate. See Comments about the “injector” system.
Tail Fur: Fluffy (short hair tail coming soon). I’m told there are “several choices of fluffyness,” but I’m guessing those are the vendors marked “3 Tails.” The other vendors probably just have 1 fluffy tail inside (though I’m not sure).
Colors: All the tails you see attached to the wall represent all the available colors — around 250 to choose from on two walls of the store (note: these tails are NOT tails to buy, these are the color injectors only; see Comments).
Accessories: All tails here come with an iPod accessory at the top of the tail, which is texture-customizable by buying separate “skin injectors.” Plus you can load various songs into them by purchasing separate “song injectors” (see Comments for an explanation of injectors.) In addition to the iPod, each tail features other decorations: “Sucker” features a spider on a web; “Ghost” features silver metal and cute ghosts; “3 Tail Hearts Bow” and the separate “Heart” both feature sculpted hearts and a bow with long ribbons; “Star” is just like “Hearts Bow” except there are stars on the side of the bow instead of hearts; “3 Tail Adult” features a plain silver metal band; “Barbwire” has three strands of barbed wire around the metal band.” There are also kid-sized tails in separate vendors with the same types of decorations.
Additional Comments: In order to find this store, wait til everything rezzes when you arrive, then turn around and head towards the orange building. There is no sign on the store, but that’s the store. Once inside, you’ll see a table with various “injectors.” This is a unique system that bears some explaining. First off, do not make the mistake of buying one of the tails you see attached to two walls. Those are not tails, those are just rezzed examples of tail colors. Instead, you want to choose a tail from the vendor pictures over on the right wall. The tails cost $250, but when you buy one, you are given a $200 credit, to be used in the store for purchasing “injectors.” Injectors are the way you make changes to your tail, by purchasing an injector and “injecting” (installing) it into your tail. There are injectors to change tail colors (those are the tails you see attached to the two walls), injectors for iPod songs, and injectors for iPod “skins” (textures).

(Keep clicking on the Hippovend arrows until you see everything).

Le Petit Prince / LPP (Aoimizuno Meili):

Sold: 2 types of Neko ears, 1 Neko tail, sold separately
HUD: No; but ears twitch, and have a click “protect” script.
Tail Fur: N/A
Colors: Brass, grey metal, and black
Accessories: Although I know a few Nekos who consider these ears to be a Steampunk Neko’s dream (probably because of the brass textures), technically they are more of a Cyberpunk look.  “Doll Digital” Neko Ears (and Neko Mimi Type II) are made of highly detailed brass with inner glowing tubes, and a click-to-retract “Reactor Cover.”  The “Doll Digital Neko Tail” is even more accessorized with brass and metal details and a thick black cable for a tail.
Additional Comments: These pieces are found upstairs on the left side of the store.  To see a photo, click here and scroll down to the second image on the page.

Sold: Unique, long, sculpted tails only
HUD:  Click to change with 3 animation settings, and 3 speeds, including a “subtle” mode that moves the tail tip only now and then.
Tail Fur: Shorthair

Accessories: None, plain and simple
Additional Comments: This is a very impressive shorthair tail with the most realistic movement I’ve seen on the grid. Just check out this video to see how well they move and look.

Liquor Pussy (Quark Yifu)

Sold: Ears and tails, sold together in a package
Tail Fur: Shorthair (I think?)

Sold: Ears and Tails sold together as a package (plus a few separate ears).

Colors: Swirling multi-color changing rainbow; leopard, white leopard; snow leopard, pink leopard (actually looks red). Across the hall are “psychodelic” color ears, “scruffy” ears that come in black, white, and pink, and tails that come in Black, white, brown, aqua, purple, magenta pink, light pink, and magenta+purple.
Accessories: Tails are plain, ears have ear cuffs with a little skull dangling from one. Scruffy ears have a safety pin and lots of extra hairs. Join the group to get an adorable set of ears with little red prim hearts dangling from the tips. Just released: a new Pyro outfit with a glowing fire tail and ears included in the package.
Additional Comments: This store offers several unique aspects in their products. Each package includes two tails — one that attaches to the stomach, and one that attaches to the pelvis (very thoughtful for us Nekos who are always trying to wear cool accessory belts in the same location). The “Scruffy” ears are unusual… with extra hair curls and lots of extra hairs that stick up. The Rainbow Tail’s colors change constantly as you wear it… very cool! And if that’s not enough, the leopard color textures are some of the nicer ones I’ve seen.

Inside every package of ears and tail comes a matching set of Neko paw feet that are very accurate in size and shape, in two sizes for different avatar heights, with a click-to-change-claws menu (retracted, visible, and violent).

– Oh Images: The top of this tail has a viewing window in which you can choose one of five animated images, in two colors (orangey-red, or blue).
– Oh Starz: A long silver band is wrapped with stars… you can retexture and recolor everything on it. This is the #1 selling tail on Xstreet.
– Oh Flight: Two buckled lather straps studded with turquoise, surrounding a long silver band with more turquoise studs and white feathers.
– Oh Spiked and Barbed: There’s some serious metal going on at the top of this tail… including a large sculpted metal skull with red glowing eyes, surrounded by spikes. A skull, cross, and more spikes adorn the ears.

– Oh Roses: The most beautiful bouquet of sculpted roses (with a sculpty bow underneath) I’ve ever seen on a tail. Both roses and bow are color-change.
– Loaded: Five leather straps, a supply of bullets, and a handgun will keep you safe with this tail. On/off particle effects too!

Then, on a THIRD wall, you’ll find ‘Lil Chitz” tails… each one loaded with an assortment of adorable bits and bobs, and sized perfectly for Neko kids / child avatars! These include School Time, Cyber, Stuff, Lil Evil, Lil Princess, and Straps.

(More designs for adults get released all the time, so be sure to go visit for yourself!)

Comments: Come upstairs to the 3rd floor to find these tails and ears, which consistently get 4-5 star ratings on Xstreet. If you don’t see a design you like, Taylor loves doing customs. That includes weddings… if you’re a Neko getting married and need an ear/tail set to match your dress or tuxedo, just drop her a notecard (cuz IMs always get capped)… her wedding sets are always discounted as a wedding gift, bless her generous heart! Meanwhile… if you’d like to demo these tails to see how the various fur choices look (and inspect for quality), this designer makes that possible. Look for a vendor window on the right side of the store, a little half-wall, half-way back, around the corner from the midnight mania board. Oh and be sure to sign up to the “hippo group” (not an SL group) if you’re out of group space.

They have lots of colours of tails, ears and boombers but more important for your readersship ~ is that they have chairs which you can win these items from. I’ve been prowling around there and it’s a great source for newbie kittens.

    2nd ~ Nek-o-licious has now installed camping chairs and you can choose form dozens of items to sit for. Smart set up and easy to use.

    Both require to join the group but they are free.
