Antron Fleece

I know I'm probably SOOL here, since not even google is helping me, but I figured I might try asking you fursuitty-type-people...

Does anyone know where I can get some Antron Fleece?

It seems to be out of stock everywhere, but I remember there being some talk of a group-buy on this comm a while back...was wondering if anything ever came of that.


Full body puppets?

Hi, I was wondering, does anyone know anything about full body puppets? I'm not sure if that's what they're really called, they're big puppets that you control from behind while wearing a black bodysuit.. I can't find any photos of any to give an example..

I want to make, or commission, a big puppet of Stallord from Zelda: Twilight Princess, more under the cut~

Jaguar foamwork

looking for some advice on the ears [myself and the customer are happy with everything else] before I start adding the rims and backs to the ears, do they look the right shape for a jaguar?

they look 'off' to me, but that might just be the lack of rims/backs

[suit will be having 3D eyes installed shortly, muzzle is longer to compensate for the length it will lose once those are set in]

added the coloured image to show how the ears would look finished as they are now, symmetry issues from the front have since been fixed.

once again, only looking for pointers [if any] on the ears]

My First Cheetah Mask (progress)

This is what I have so far. Spent almost 5 1/2 hours today doing a duct-tape pattern, cutting, sewing, gluing the fur on and shaving it down, and then airbrushing. :) This is my first cheetah mask and I'm VERY happy with the results. It obviously needs ears, the commissioner wants two-toned brown/blond bangs, and the hood attached.

Costume Conundrum

Hello everyone. I'm not a fursuiter, but the costume I'm making for BlizzCon this year is a Worgen and this community has helped a ton with that. As such, I'm almost to the point where I can start furring my head, and I need to seriously think about what I'm going to do with the rest of the body. I'm hoping you guys can help with this.

Ear puppetry?

So I have another question about ears, this time regarding moving ones.
I've looked into the methods for moving ears, and I think puppetry, with pulling a string to move them, is best. However, the only information/help I've been able to find is for pulling the ears down from the tips and other unrealistic movement.
I really want my ears to fold back, like an angry cat. That's all I want them to do, but I can't figure out how to do it. I'm not sure what material to use, or how to put it together that pulling the string would fold it back like that...
So, does anyone know how to make moving ears that will fold back like an angry cat?

(I will be putting them on a hat and attaching the string to my collar so I can move my head to move the ears, if that matters)
