Naga Kinetic Tail

Hey guys! I was hoping to bounce some ideas around, as I'm stuck on a costume.
I'm doing an animatronic tail that can move side-to-side, as seen in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxAl2NGOZQI&feature=related .
The tail is made by a bunch of snake-like sections attached down the center on top and bottom with a cord threaded down one side and up the other. However, the foam doesn't really want to hold any form of loop for the rope to run through. I tried gluing rubber circles to the sides for these tracks, but they come off too easily. I haven't gotten my hands on barge yet- I'm using a mixture of hot glue, sewing with duct-tape enforced edges, and a spray adhesive right now. I also tried threading the rope through the sections, but there's too much tension and I can't get the rope to contract the entire length of the tail. I was thinking about drilling holes and covering them with plastic inside somehow, but I'd need some pretty long/wide holes. Any ideas?

I'm quitte new to lolita and already own a few bodyline pieces, but I've wanted to start buying brand for a long time, but I'm still a bit young and don't have a fulltime job yet so I never actually thought of saving for a brand piece because it's alot of money for me. But when I saw the first promo pictures of Toy March I instantly fell in love with that dress, everything about the print is just so cute and lovely. I could already see myself being all dolly in it. So I decided I really wanted to save for it. But now everything I wanted is already sold out ;n;
I have never purchased anything from a brand site or store before and I don't have a lj account so maybe I'm just missing something, but how is everyone purchasing it so quick? I mean, it's like less than a week that I saw it appearing on the english site, and everything is already sold out.
I feel a bit dumb now but I have some questions.. Did a lot of people buy it before it appeared in the english store? Now that it's sold out on the site, will I still be able to get it without having to pay the dubble amount on the comm_sales? Do you actually save for a dress or is it just luck that you have the amount of money for a dress at the time so you can buy it instantly?
Sorry if it looks like I'm a poor newbie, but I'm just a bit shocked how easily and quick people bought it..
