Before I attempt to begin a fursuit, I want to "test" my abilities first by makeing a plushie. Does anyone know where I can get a couple of small canine "noses" to use on it?
Also, whats the best way to sew on or attach claws?
This post isn't about building a suit or anything of that nature, but the actual act of suiting in public.
I want to suit at a local mall hopefully tomorrow, and I'm wondering what would be the best way to go about it. I believe it would be best to call the mall and explain to them what I'm doing, etc, but I do not want to go through that awkward moment of 'wtf' with them, and having to FULLY explain myself. However, I am unsure how mall security and management will handle a surprise 'furry' walking around the mall.
Ok...so Ive got all my ductape pattern pieces cut off of my suit head, and Im going to fur the bottom jaw first, but I cant for the life of me figure out how to fur it without creating horrible wrinkles, or very visible darts. Where do you guys place darts on the bottom jaw? I can only think of the chin area to put them, but then they're very visible. Am I completely missing some obvious solution to this XD ? Any help would be appreciated! A visible reference would be especially nice :D Oh, and the suit is a canine so you can get an idea of the jaw shape :)
