How many yards of fur would you reccommend buying for 2 partial fursuits. I'm going to make my first attempt at it for Anthrocon. I also need to know what I need for a mesh fursuit head and claws, eyes, noses and things like that. IF you could help me that would be great!
A few days ago, after casting some eye blanks, I had some left over resin and edcided to cast a few claws as an experiment. I forgot about them until today when I demolded them and realized how cool totally clear claws look. I don't know of anyone who has ever made/used clear claws before in a costume.
They really look like they could have been created in an icecube tray and I decided that I really wanted to run with that theme.
I can't use that idea for my Snowy Forest critter (for various reasons). So now I need ideas for a companion creature - maybe a frozen lake creature or mountain glacier critter.
What animals do you see when you think of ice and snow? What colours? What habitat?
I could theoretically cast other body parts such as horns or spikes, though it could get expensive/heavy if they're too big (ie. I can't make clear bighorn sheep horns.. more's the pity).
Any ideas? Let your imagination run with it and report back here :D This could turrn into something really cool :D
How is the white fox fur from Monterey Mills? Or the service/fur from SyFabrics? The shaggy white fur, the red shaggy fur, the orange shaggy fur and black shaggy fur. Is it soft, good quality, ect. Also, for a head, tails, paws and feetpaws would you suggest longer fur (2-3in) or shorter fur (under an inch). For a body, wold same length fur be appropriate or would it be better to have longer/shorter fur? Also, if the furs I have picked are not exactly, 'ideal' furs what furs would you suggest? I am mainly looking for crimson and white fur. Though I do need a little sunset orange fur and black fur for certain highlights (band around the tail and tail tip/ear tips).
Thanks for any help I get. I am also looking for more help when it comes to my other questions I posted a couple days ago. Please respond to that as well.
Thank ya for the help,
