How DO you make those Animal Costumes? (Fursuits)
Halloween fursuit! 
1st-Sep-2009 02:24 am
I've finally decided on what I'm making for my first fursuit. Something pretty simple, nothing fancy...

Thats right!

Frankenweenie's Sparky.

Just a temporary image for now, I'll post some more doodles.

Since I don't have a whole lot of time until Halloween, I'm just focusing on the head first. It will be a use-your-eyes mask done kind of like how Missmonster made her werewolf mask. Once I get it done, I'll make a body suit with all kinds of fun patchwork parts.
I'm so excited for this one! There aren't enough Bull Terrier fursuits out there.

IMO: Halloween/monster suits are the best first suits because hey, if they come out shabby? You can always use the excuse "WELL HE WAS SUPPOSED TO LOOK ICKY..." (of course this doesn't excuse you from saving the critiques for serious use in later suits :P )

Never did a use-your-own-eyes mask myself so I've got nothing helpful to add there, but I can't wait to see how he comes along; <3 bull terriers!

ha! That'd be cute :3

He's gonna be really neat :D But the use your own eyes style is gonna be difficult with the way his head is structured :)

HOLY CRAP MAN! If you make this and I ever see you running around in it I'll totally end up fangirling all over you.

*bounces* This would make SUCH a great suit! I can't wait to see how it turns out!

I'm hoping people will recognize him. Especially non-furs.

Got the idea when a friend said the theme for this Halloween party is 'undead'
I didn't wanna be a lame zombie or vampire...so I looked through my movies and found Sparky!

I've got a good sense of three dimensional things, i've got it mostly figured out in my head. Just wait and see.

Go for it! I recommend doing it as a full suit if you can.

I'm starting with the head for Halloween, but if I go to a con with it, it will be a full suit. :3
1st-Sep-2009 09:37 am (UTC)
That'll definitely be awesome.

*shudder* Frankenweenie always left me feeling uneasy... I guess that's how it's suppose to feel tho. :P
Still... the head is really cute.

I know! I was poking around for famous bull terriers and found Sparky...I'm surprised nobody has made a suit of him yet.
1st-Sep-2009 07:27 pm (UTC)
I'm sure somebody somewhere for Halloween has I mean he is such an awesome dog how could they not? But maybe you are the first

More monsters!

omigosh! DO IT!!! DO IT!!!DO IT!!!DO IT!!!DO IT!!!DO IT!!!!!!!!! XDDDD

I have that movie on VHS.. as well as every other BUrton movie (and a book) I can get my paws on!
1st-Sep-2009 06:19 pm (UTC)

Did you know he is re-making it? For 2011 I think. But not live action...
1st-Sep-2009 07:37 pm (UTC)
aw... *sads tinily* But there is SO much more you can do with CG nowaday (unless it's stop-motion *hopes*).. that you couldn't do back when it was originally filmed. And movies with live animals are getting so taboo now because of animal rights activists on over-kill. Don't step on PETA's toes!.. better yet, don't come within 5 feet of them!

And WOW Burton's been really busy lately! THREE movies in the works? It's too good to be true!
2nd-Sep-2009 01:22 am (UTC)
I think I read something about it being stop-motion as well, hence the year it will come out.

I can't wait either X3

Awesome! That was a cute little movie and ought to make a nifty suit.
