Hey! I've been silent on this community for far too long. I go by Dax, and Ichi (my girlfriend) and I finished our first suits just in time for Halloween. (By the way, I think we should officially rename Halloween to "Socially Acceptable Fursuiting Day". Or something.) We don't even have really good indoor pics, but with the help of escort/photographer Procyon, we ran around UC Berkeley for a bit. It was all really surreal—I didn't think we'd ever finish the suits!—but the crowds were great, the weather was wonderful, and we had a blast.( Collapse )
Ichi's a partial (head and handpaws, footpaws to follow) and Dax is a fullsuit. We don't really believe in doing anything by halves: They both have follow-me eyes, taxidermy noses, and Sculpey teeth, and Dax also has foam digitigrade legs. There's already a lot to be fixed, but with two months before FC, I think we'll have plenty of time.
To give credit where credit is due, we relied a lot on Adam Riggs's Critter Costuming
, as well as Brokken's tutorial
and Matrices's tutorials
. Many thanks to all of them, and hope the resources help you as much as they helped us!
Any suggestions about what to fix, or how they turned out? I'm always a fan of good criticism. Once I get a few initial things fixed up, and get some better pictures, I'll probably post once more.
Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween!
