(no subject)

hey pups!

I'm working on a half suit for the 4th of July. He'll be done like Friday... and I'm wondering about taxidermy eyes. The breed is an odd dog that has really beedy eyes and I'd like to stick with 'em... but anyway, I was curious about some nice websites to buy taxidermy eyes from (I'm gonna buy the ones right now from a local taxidermy shop but I prefer to buy from the net.) and I'm curious about how you will see with them. I've never gotten my paws on them before so I'm new with this, but I've seen some suits with 'em and I'd like to check 'em out!

Thanks guys! *tromps around* URF!

Trimming back the faux fur?

Arf!

Question for the masses.

My wife and I bought a trimmer for our dogs. One of those big jobbers with the attachments and all.

Well, Rocky's muzzle fur is a bit, long and not very managable. I was wondering if anyone has used a tool like the one we got for our dogs to thin out the faux fur on their suits or heads?

Thanks ahead of time.

Success!

Well, the latest attempt to cast a horn actually worked! Mostly, anyway; there's a lot of flash to trim off, and a few air bubbles to fill in, and the Quik-Cast actually solidified a little too fast, leaving the top inch or two undone. I build that with Magic Sculpt, I think. But the entire length of the thing is there, minus those two inches, so I actually have something to work with. The mold didn't leak at all.

Thanks go to foofers and ysengrin for their advice and support.

Thanks also go to my parents, who gave me what I dearly needed if I wanted to proceed with other parts of my costume: a sewing machine! Thanks a bunch, guys!

*CROSS POST* Just a odd question on prefs for when I get my jumper done... wich do most ppl find easier for swapping between full to Half suits. Tail attached to jumper? Or not attached? Also Paws fully down / attached ? Or not [right now mine are just gloves... and i really want to extend them longer without looking shoddy :( and same to my feet area for when in half suit ... so the socks maby dont show. I want it to look prytie not just thrown together like i sorta feel we did for Akon]Tips are needed and thankful so that when I can get some spare white fur fm CR Crafts.com like rosequoll Did for my half suit. *anyone maby got some spare atm they dont need?
