Updated footpaws tutorial!

There's nothing better than a new tutorial, right? Right?
Well, not quite, this time its a better-than-ever updated tutorial!!

I expanded my footpaws tutorial with a TON of new and useful information, as well as went into some other parts of the process in a little greater detail compared to the former tutorial. I also added many new pictures, and descriptions to most of the pictures to explain just what is going on. :3

I'm super-proud of this tutorial now, and invite you all to take a look:


Puppy Fursuit Idea

Since it's been a while since I completed my own personal suit, and I've improved since then, I've decided that I want to try my hand at a full suit. I've had all the fur for this guy sitting around in my closet for a while, but never could think of a good idea for it. I finally came up with something!

mendals swatchs lost in space?\\

Has anyone else had problems getting swatch requests from Mendals? I ordered them quite some time ago and haven't heard anything yet. Is their service always like this? 0:

I'm looking to buy short pile lime green and violet fur for a half suit.


Also, unrelated, anyone have photos of horse fursuits? Digigrade ones only please.

Suit for AX...

Hey everyone,

I'm working on a costume for Anime Expo and the character I'm doing has an almost perfectly round and very large head. So I'm having some trouble figuring out how to construct a round head that I'll be able to get on and off easily. Help?

Schematic/concept art/drawing behind cut-thing O_O (Or not... I've never used a cut before. Bare with me here. I'll get it behind a cut if it's the last thing I do. >>)

Jacob The Snail

Okay, I have something I want to do.

First, here is a picture to show the basic idea of what I would like to do.

Jacob is a new alis I have been useing. He is kinda my cover up, but after building up a personality for him I have decided to make him a permanet character. I have also decided I want to make a fursuit of him.

I have an idea of what to do with the bodysuit. I think I will do spandex and a padded undersuit to hide my breasts and make the shape more even. For the shell I don't have a steady idea, I want to do platic casting but I am not entirly sure how to do that, does anyone here know how? The hands will be mitten based, I'll probably have it a one piece attached to the arms and have a hole in the bottem so if I'm resting or something in a lunge I can take my hands out. The feet will also be attached, like little kid PJ's, aka footsies XD. The feet will also be made from spandex, I'll be wearing shoes over that, though, most the time.

So I have two problems.
1) Plastic Casting the shell.

2) The head.

With the head I know for a fact I want to do retractable eyes. I have been trying to figure out how I would pull this off. I don't want to go into expensive robotics, I was thinking some kind of pully string and spring system, but I really don't know what I would do. I'll probably have to open the mouth and look out through that either way. He'll have the snail nose-whiskers and all that, too.

Also, with Spandex, is it okay to use an airbrush on it, or should I just sew the different colors togeather?
