My school's colors (Northern Illinois University) are red and black, so naturally I had to go with the crazy Joann fur. When used properly I think this fur is fantastic. It's so soft! I am extremely huggable in this suit. Too bad it's not the same inside- I didn't sew the muslin undersuit into the body, so the rough fur backing rubs on me, unless I wear Underarmour.
One of these days I'll learn to go into more character background with my fursuits... maybe? I dunno, I just like building them!
I can't take all the credit for this one- the lovely semjay helped me make the head for this suit by sculpting foam for use on a balaclava mask, baking me a cute little nose and teeth, and cutting and painting the eyes!

Could be better, but I'm really really happy with how this turned out. I think I'm hooked on balaclava style heads now.
