Howdy and stuffs, just joined the community and would like to say hi,this journal is separate from my other one,so as to minimize backlogs of journals to read.
I'm a suitmaker from PA...So Hellos to all.
Guys, would you please do me (and everyone else) a favor and properly enclose your long URL's in the proper HTML tags?
A quick reminder:
<a href="your URL goes inside the quotes">and a short description goes here</a>
I'm going to make my fursuit by modifying the McCall's pattern... *crosses fingers* Does anyone have any good pictures of suits that have been made in this fashion? I'd really love to see, so I have an idea of how it comes out in the end. I know it'll be great, 'cos there are so many wonderful fursuiters in this community...
Thanks in advance ^^
Hello all! I've got two projects in the works right now, and both of them involve creating claw-like hands with elongated fingers. I'd love to keep the dexterity of natural fingers in the final product, but I'm wondering how to go about doing that. I used to see toy robot hands where you'd slip your arm into a plastic sleeve, and each finger into a trigger-like slot that, when depressed, would pull and curl a corresponding finger on the outer shell of the robot arm. Unfortunately I can't find them anywhere anymore!
Has anyone else been confronted with this problem before, and how did you solve it? Also, if anyone knows a resource for these robot hand toys, I'd be very thankful!
Hello.. I'm totally and completely new, to the community and to making fursuits..
I've been checking out the tutorials here and there, and have thus decided to do something simple to start (hand and foot paws only). But I have a question or two that was on my mind...
Has anyone tried this whole no-sew tailoring tape that my parents keep insisting that I use? I mean, is it a good idea or should I just suck it up and learn how to sew? (I have no machine, arg)
And secondly, is polyurethane foam a good investment? I saw some today in crafts at Wal-Mart (for when I eventually gather up the nerve to attempt a head) and thought about buying it, but if there is something better you all can recommend I'd rather go for it.
Thanks in advance :)
