All you people out there who build your own fursuits with your own time and money, you have my respect. This looks like it takes a lot of hard work and passion.

Thanks, and it's not an easy task. A lot of your ego getting punched, wrestled with, knocked down, tied up, taken for a ride, a lot of learning curves, ego boosts, happy times, sad times, OHHH SHOOOOT! Times, lol. It is fun, nonetheless and thanks for the respect. Even those who don't have the time or money, but love the art anyways and desire to do something serious with that love one day have my respect just as severely. 8) 

I love those eyes by the way!


Thanks Sakiki! Hopefully, once circumstances get equalized where I live, I can do something more serious with this since I have a knack for it. I might start taking commissions. 

Turned out great! How'd you make the eyes anyway?


I made the eyes with plastic Mesh! Just drew the eye out on a piece of paper, cut it out, traced it onto the mesh and cut it out, then flipped it over facing the other way and cut it out again and there you have it, eyes. I painted the eyes after that with acrylic paint going off the eye that I originally drew on the paper for reference. Thanks very much. They must be really good cause I keep getting the "Wow! Great eyes!" Effect, lol. I just whipped them out and got them done in a flash, lol! The vision through them, despite there small size is all right for straight ahead. You just have to remember to look down and all about to make sure you don't snag a shin on something. I actually did that for the first time since I had made the head today. I felt dumb. I almost had a record of no injuries going, even though I knew the house I had been staying in for the past few months all ready. It CAN happen! XD

You can find it at a local craft store usually or anywhere that would sell sewing stuff. When I used to get mine it came in sheets.

I would suggest maybe some floofier faux-fur, but that's just me. The suit looks great, can't wait to see it finished.

You know, I think I'm getting disatisfied where i shouldn't be so, you're right, it looks ALL RIGHT and I'm going to just be happy with it. The tail I really want I won't be able to get until I make the full suit one day, MUAHAH! And it will be a MONSTER tail! I like BIG floof. BIIIG BUTT FLUFF! So yeah, I'll have this for the partial for now 8).

I've decided I'm over reacting so I'll be happy with the tail the way it is. I got some rather unprofessional, pure criticism on FA so I was kinda dissatisfied after that, but only for the sake of proving those two individuals I could make it look like what they thought it should be and I could do it WELL. But this suit hasn't even seen her debut yet and I all ready want to make a 2.0. I'm just so excited and on fire to prove I can do this! LOL.

SK, really love the way it is turning out so far! Do you plan on talking while in character? If not, just make sure your spotter (handler) who helps you around knows your story and can answer all the questions about your suit-
I.E.
Non-Suiter: "Wow, what a nice kangaroo costume!"
Spotter: "No, she's a bush baby" (insert explanation with funny connotations)
You: Shakes head, looks embarrassed.
World: All better... tada!

You're so right! XD lol. My friend, a lizard will be there to direct people in the right direction with what I am. Who would have thought, a lizard knew more than a mere human did about species? Isn't that a little weird? Lol.

Here is Tomedoe in her Pirate costume she's supposed to be in. I still need to add some things to complete the look!

The video is a great showcase of the partial- and sometimes the partials work MUCH better than fulls- way cooler.

As for the wrinkles- use elastic waist band material to "pull" the material tighter -or- small 1 inch sections of velcro in the shirt and underside of the faux fur material to attach it. The weight of the shirt or other fabric below with keep the wrinkles out. But note* if you use the velcro it can be itchy to use the shirt without the headgear, etc.

Feel free to flip through some of my photos on Deviant Art where I was building my costume of SpaceFox- some good shots in there about velcro use and I think the elastic band material too.

Awww, I love your pirate outfit! And no worries I understand what it's like to be called different species. I used to have an older suit of a blue wolf and everybody on my street kept calling it different stuff like a wallaby or even a Chinese new-year dragon. x__X LOL
Your suit is awesome and I likes it. ^_^

Oh see there's an idea, some sort of Oriental looking costume. Then you can troll people by explaining that it actually ISN'T a dragon!

Whew, it's been a while since i posted Here! You remember Tomedoe, don't you? Well, she's pretty much done, besides going back and reinforcing my original accessories for her! Come check her out! This video isn't the full attire, but this is my basic look I will have for Renaissance festival this year! I can't wait! I'm not wearing my hand gloves because shooting this would have resulted in a near heat stroke! Lol! I will be wearing them at rens fest, though.

Tank yousa! Yes, she is. I keep leaving stuff out of my vids so I need to just get my stuff together and wear the fullsuit with everything on so people know what's to be expected or take a picture. :P
