Blue fur

I've looked around for a while, and it doesn't look promising... but if anyone knows, I'll bet they're here. I'm looking for a fox (faux) fur in blue... something lighter than the average navy, but not quite baby blue. Ideally I'd like it to be good-quality, "realistic" patterning (not just a flat color), long pile (at least an inch, I think), and blue-tipped silver.

Not likely, huh? I figure I'd be better off giving you my "ideal" desires, but I don't expect to find exactly what I'm looking for. Tell me if you've seen anything that's close, though. Thank you.

Xander!

Well, he's not done, no, and I do still have to order the fur, but he will be my first full suit. Xander was one of those accident characters... the most random drawing (and one that somehow morphed from female to male O_o) became a character that I absolutely love now. My icon has a drawing of him, if you want to see. :P Anyway, I'm making him using a balaclava/mesh method... thing. Basically instead of foam I'm using mesh, yeah.

In this video here he's 'singing' to the first line or so of Sugar We're Goin' Down... see, because of his hair, which ended up similar to Pete Wentz's, he's been associated with FOB. O_o I dunno, I might just be crazy. Anywho, I'm gonna stop rambling before someone's eyes roll right out of their sockets and put up this video.

help

Okay, I'm having some issues...

I've started on a head for myself and the mesh work is mostly done but I'm having major issues trying to figure out how to do the ears...

http://www.deviantart.com/view/28546510/ my ears are usually very long and I would like to keep them that way, or as long as I can without makeing the head to heavy.

I'd like as much help as you guys can give because I can't figure it out for the life of me....



Thanks,
Ichi

Good Material for Eyelashes?

I've decided that a panda is my next fursuit project. I would like to make it female and to give it that appearance in the face I'd like to add eyelashes to the eyelids. I'm going to be using static eyes made of plastic bowls much like how matrices does hers, but I'm not sure what would make a good material for eyelashes. I would just want them on the outter edges on the eyelids, and would like them kind of pronounced and noticable. Any ideas?

Also, I've been looking at photographs of pandas and it doesn't seem like they have any sort of visible tail, yet most art I've seen of pandas show them with a black tail. I'm torn, should I:

A.) Have no tail.
B.) Have a white tail or,
C.) Have a black tail?
draconics

Moo!

In the spirit of happy birthdayish money spending, I'm intending to get the materials for my own first personal full fursuit!

In short, I need about 4-5 yards/metres of short pile silvery grey fur (possibly CR's sterling grey seal fur if it's nice quality) and 2-3 metres of short pile light/baby blue, as pale as possible. I'd really like for them to be the same type of fur, and I need to know if I can get some really nice quality stuff. So, does anyone know where I can get both in good seal fur? If not, know of a good quality baby blue shortpile that'd go with the sterling grey?

Thanks!

Also, still offering a couple of cheap 'item trade' commissions for those who want to do something a bit different :)
Ask me if you're interested!

Thankies,
