Alright, random update time!
I'm going to graduate from high school this Saturday, and then possibly the next Monday, me and my sister are going to celebrate by taking a drive down to the local fabric store and art store to get stuff for our projects :D. I'm still planning on doing my snow griffin costume, and my sister...um...she's changed her mind as to what she wants to do. We'll figure it out though. :}
Anyway...we've been pondering this for a while...
My sister's character is Alakyl the dire wolf. She looks something like this: http://geocities.com/dinogrrl86/yeehaw.png
(you may have to delete the http:// or www. or copy/paste the url to get it to work). A rusty-colored wolf with multi-colored spirals in her fur.
I had suggested a while back that my sister make a fursuit of Alakyl, but she's basically shot that down every time with the same argument: How on earth would one make the spirals?
I've thought of two ways: 1) sew different-colored fabrics into the rust base and 2) paint the spirals.
Right now, we do not have an airbrush set, so painting the spirals would be difficult. However, neither of us are very good at sewing (and we don't own a sewing machine any more), so sewing the spirals would be difficult as well.
