Big Ol' Bunny

(cross-posted from my LJ

I've been asked a lot of questions about my magic rabbit costume from MFF. Since I didn't do any walk-around at MFF in this costume, (he only appeared in the FVS) I thought I'd post pix of Ta-Dah so that people could see him, and I could explain how he works.
Ta-Dah is an inflatable suit, meaning he has no traditional padding. I wear an inflatable suit under-neath the fur. The outer fursuit has the rabbit shape sewn in, so the inflatable suit assumes that shape as air is added.
Here is the suit at "regular" size.

You know that mesh that everyone seems to use for fursuit eyes?
Like these here.

What is it and where can it be bought? I used cheesecloth for my mask's eye holes, (i'm not actually using this for eyes, the eyes of the mask are above where i have to look out.) because i couldn't find anything better at craft stores here, but at AC this year i discovered that it created too much glare and i had to rip it off in order to see.

I'm assuming that visibility must be adequate with this mystery mesh, since it is widely used. Tips would be appreciated, thanks!
