My boything and I are working on our partials (well, he's doing a partial I'm doing a full) to take to Anthrocon. I figure we have enough time to get them done in the next few months. ;D
Anyway, I did a practice partial a lil while back to prepare me for this one. We're looking for a few things though.
1. I need good greyish brown (agouti-ish) fur for my wombat suit. Nothing ridiculously expensive please. The cheaper the better but I want it to look alright. Ideally the pile would be a couple inches.
2. I need advice for wombat footpaws. Wombat feet in general are very different from most animals. The handpaws are simple because they're very human hand like, but the footpaws are also very human-hand like. So I guess I kinda want the toes to look more like fingers. Does anyone have any examples of fursuits I can look at that have paws like this maybe? Or ideas? I'm scared of them being fragile and breaking. They'll also have claws so that's a concern, too.
3. Also, I used vinyl for my practice handpaws. It's not very pliable. It's hard to move my hands in. And I'm using it for the entire bottom of the paws this time so I was hoping for a flesh like material that I could use that I'll actually be able to move my hands in, haha.
4. Oh, and this is sorta a silly question I guess, but my boyfriend and I'll be suiting together, and he's a bear, and I'm a wombat, and we're similar looking creatures. But him and I are seriously, bodywise, pretty much exactly the same height and really really close in body type, especially in fursuit, but I was wondering if there was a good way to imply that even though we're technically the same SIZE he's a bigger animal than me. O_o. If that makes any sense. I think it'd just be cuter that way but if there's no way to pull it off that's cool, too.
Thanks you guys. :D
Im am making a mask of my fursona. ive made the frame by sowing plastic mesh together and ive added foam for the shape. i want to make sure that when i add the fur it will lay flat and be the shape i want it to be.
so my question is, if i were to cover it first with a cheap fabric to see how it would all lay down b4 i added the real fur would that cause any problems? i want to make sure i dont ruin it bc i have spent so much time on it.
this is my very first mask and my only other fursuit thing i have done is make paws. when i get pics i will post them.
Thanks in advance :)
p.s. i have no idea how this place works. so if someone would kinda be a friend a help me figure things out id appreciate it alot. thanks guys!
