You can use star tip 18 for pull-out fur.  Also, you could use the small grass tip 233 for Elmo and the large grass tip 333 for Cookie Monster.


If you're gluing fondant feathers to a fondant covered cake, you need not worry about the weight, as long as you roll them thin.  And, if it's fondant to fondant, water will be be a sufficient glue.  However, you can use gum glue if you want.

I did one very similar to that.  I used the grass tip for Elmo and I just kinda swirled my spatula around for cookie monster.  I just used gum glue for the fondant feathers.  Do consider using styrofoam covered in fondant for the beak.  I used fondant and it was EXTREMELY heavy, pulling on the cake and feathers, and had to be propped up from underneath.  I would have been mortified if it were for a paying customer and not my own family.
