Hanging dog ears?

I am looking for tutorials for hanging dog ears, I have tried googling but there is none what I can find. I need ears like spaniels/Saluki/Afghans to name a few. I have checked in memories but there is no help there either. Thank you all on beforehand. 

Making very round shape legs?

Hello! this is my first time using this website so sorry for any incorrectness. I am making a digi fursuit, and I am having a problem. so the body of it is normal, except for the leg area. It connects slanted like from the body and the upper part is very round, like these pictures similar:

Front Heavy Fursuit, Please Help!

Hello fursuiters and fursuit creater community,

I am currently creating my first fursuit(and using a resin base)for a star nose mole character. The problem that I have encountered is that due to the nose and extra foam added onto the base the front has become unevenly heavy. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I might be able to counterbalance the weight?

Thank you in advance!

P.s. I hope this is formatted correctly it’s my first post.

First post, need help with hot glue + jawsets

So I am making my first partial, and I have done so much research on what to do/what not to do, but I have come to a problem.
While gluing my jawset to the resin blank, it seems to have moved just the slightest bit to where the teeth lock together slightly/it makes it difficult to open and close the mouth. The problem is that I used extra strength hot glue and it's near impossible to remove now. Is there anything I can do to fix this? File the teeth maybe? Though I feel like that will just damage them instead of fix anything. Pictures included: 

Faux fur from yarn [HELP]

I saw this video tutorial and was wondering if this technique would be possible for making a sheet of faux "fur"
I'm planning to make a partial/mini partial, so I definitely don't need a whole load of fur. My fursona has six colors, mostly different shades of brown/burgundy so I really don't want to buy six different colors of fur and drop $80+ on it.

I'm thinking about getting mesh fabric to loop the yarn through and create a sheet of fur. Has anyone done this? I've looked everywhere but haven't seen a solid answer. My only fear is shaving the yarn down for the fursuit head and messing it up (I've seen no one shave down yarn fur).

I've heard that it is washable. The last thing I want to do is buy a buttload of fur in different colors when I only need a little bit of each color. If yarn fur isn't a good method, what other options do you guys think I could use? Buying white fur and dyeing/painting it was another one of my options but the color easily washes out of synthetic fibers.
