Hello, there. I have a bit of a question.
I have a pirate maned wolf fursuit I made(no pics up yet, sorry ^^;). I plan on wearing him tomorrow to my local church's halloween thingy. He's a full suit, with a moving jaw. However, this presents a bit of a problem: every time I open my mouth, one can see the girl inside the costume through the mouth. Now, normally I'd throw on a balaclava and call that that -- but, the thing is, the mask also uses my natural hair. So, I can't really strap my hair down without the mask looking really weird and, frankly, wrong. I thought about facepainting my chin balck, but that would smear on the inside of the head...
How can I hide my chin/ face in general, without covering the rest of my head as well, and how can I do so rather quickly?
To all who responded to my thread tension problem, thank you! I changed the tension to 4 and switched to a denim sized needle. It works wonderfully!!!
Hey everyone, first-time poster, finishing up my first attempt at a partial fursuit (head, paw-hands and tail, pictures once it's finished!) and I wanted to get a few tips on fursuiting itself?
I'll be wearing it to school on Monday and Tuesday (I know Tuesday is Halloween but I see most of my friends on Monday). I go to college so I have plenty of freedom to get outside or walk around between classes, so no crowded high school hallways or anything. I'm also being careful to make sure I can see out of my mask when it's on.
Other than that, can you offer any tips for when I'm wearing my costume? I've never worn a fursuit before, though this is approximately my fourth attempt at making a head (first one I'm really completing I think). Is there anything I should be aware of before heading out in public as a furry?
...and any words of encouragement? Don't get me wrong I think it's going to be a blast, but I confess to a few minor self-esteem issues about walking around in a furry animal costume, being new to the trade and all. At least I can tell myself nobody will see me blush if I get jeered at because of the mask, right?
Thanks! I adore browsing this community, it's so inspiring! I'll be sure to start being active now that I've posted once! :)
Can someone shoot me some good links for Bal-Tog's full body undersuits and balacava stuff that you reccomend? Im wanting to save up to get some to wear under my suit someday but I want to see if theres any other good deals out there asides the ones ive found round 80 dollars for a full hood/body Baltog. If this is innapropriate for here let me know.
