Beetle Autumn

lion

Let us continue this little journey past the hoovers and into the felines...

I started this lion same time as the deer. I experimented with giving him whiskers but it just didn't look right. And then I was trying to soften the plastic whiskers with heat to make them lay more uniformly.. using my gas stove...

After that, I waa a little too eager with the black paint (even though I know not to even use black) and muddied up his face so he looked like 'Zira' off the 'Lion King'. Not a horrible look, but that much paint makes things really stiff and coarse. So I ended up refurring much of his face (and removing the whisker stubs at the same time).

And my website is up at http://www.beetlecatoriginals.com . I cut all of the product links but I have a couple tutorials and a quick run through of head making amongst other stuff. Two pics have broken links and the feedback form does not work.

As a side note, anyone who knows php, can I pick your brain? It worked in the old incarnation of my website, but that was wiped and I have since lost all knowledge of how to make this feedback form work. Do I need a sendmail script as well as a feedback script?

EDIT: I figured it out. You may feedback away with abandon :D

I need your honest Critque!

Liek some of you already know, Im making a Yoruichi, as a black cat, fursuit from Bleach. Ive been working on it for some time now and I really really need some of your guy's critques. Im obviously not a professional so yeah. This is only my second fursuit head and I know you guys can do a much better job than me.

Hiding your face?

I need to hide my face well, and I've considered black make-up, but decided that a black veil or screen would be best. It needs to cover a relatively large area (like a sort of mask) and render my face underneath as invisible as possible. What kind of material would you guys reccomend to conceal oneself?

edit: I've considered Balaclavas, but I need to cover/conceal my eyes with some decent visibility, as it can be one of the weakest illusion points of a costume.

    Something breaking somewhere...

(no subject)

Here is a question for everyone.... I have seen ears on a headband and one of my co-workers wants me to make her a cat ears and tail set but what I want to do is put fur on the headband so that it will cover the whole thing and not show the headband. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Paws

Alright, so I finally (almost) finished my first... craft with foam and fur. Footpaws; fairly simple and a good first-time sort of thing, I'm thinking. So I took some pics of the foam and then the finished project :3 The toes look more defined in real life, the flash on my camera also made the fur a bit lighter than it really is ^^ Either way, I'm happy with how it came out for my first time :D
