iv really been wanting to finish my fursuit head,but kinda stuck cuz i wanted to do the eyes before i started furing more. I hear people talk about using "bowls" an stuff for eyes with see thur stuff, i cant seem to find much in the near by stores. maybe im just not looking for the right stuff.
could sure use some help on finding the right stuff,an how to add them to my head ^.^

I want to make a pair of ears, but I want to make them machine washable (I want to put them on a hoodie). What exactly would I make them out of, and how would I go about washing them properly?
An interesting proposal was brought to me recently, that being, a suit equipped to play brass instruments. Specifically the flugelhorn (similar to the trumpet and cornet). I'm very interested in trying to pull this off, but a variety of problems naturally occur.
In most suits, the actual suiter's lips are set back a decent ways from the lips of the fursuit head. Given that, the first problem I have to overcome is how do I make it look like the instrument is being played as opposed to eaten? I was thinking if there was some way to extend the instruments mouthpiece, but naturally that would effect the tone and pitch. I keep comming up with ideas and keep shooting them down, so I was wondering if the knowledgeable community here had any ideas?
The second obstacle lies in the paws. It takes a great deal of dexterity and hand articulation to play notes on a valved instrument, and paws often remove a lot of dexterity. I considered doing skin-tight paws made out of that latex-like material (forgot what it was called), but personally I'm not a fan of how those look and they're just not too furry. The best method I came up with was to combine a furred sleeve with some tight gloves, so only the palm and fingers themselves were un-furred, but I have my doubts as to how well that would look when completed. Any thoughts yourselves?
If anything like this has been done before, which I suspect it may have, I'd also be very greatful if anyone could direct me to some pictures or even the crafter themselves.
