I know there are a few posts in the memories section covering this, but I'm still a bit unsure. I -plan- the keyword here is plan, on flying to California for Califur this year, and I'm not sure what is the safest, most cost effective way to send a suit?
The bodysuit itself I'm not too worried about, but the head has huge ears which I fear might gt crushed, and I'm a bit paranoid to bring it as a carry on, for fear of poking people with it, and just being a nuisance, since the planes I ride on for some reason, are always the one packed like sardine cans.
Should I just invest in a hard like....travelbag, and put it in there? I was even contemplating mailing it, but I'm afraid that will cost me a fortune. Plus, they charge you for extra bags now, and I'm trying to figure out a way to do this, without it costing me an arm and a leg, or accidentally end up destroying the suit.
I have a local supplier who I can buy bulk sheets of plastic ( the same kind as the sterilite bowls, just a little thinner and can be gently heat molded) and was wondering if anyone was interested in some? It's $5(plus $2 shipping USA $3 international) for a 12x12 sheet and I can work out over sizes/prices.
It's easier than buying a huge 4x8' sheet and having it sit forever haha.
If anyones interested I'll go back and talk to him and work something out, I know it's a) hard to find the right bowls and b) annoying to waste the rest of the bowl
Maybe I'm blind, but I can't find any tutorials or anything on how to make decent (LONG) headfur.
is there a way to get a decent long haired look out of using faux fur instead of a wig?
I've only started to make heads on commission, and I'm wondering what's acceptable and not as far as finish work inside of a head. I also haven't seen many samples from other makers in person to really get a feel for how people treat the insides.
So, what do you do to the inside of your heads to make them look or feel nice, and professional? What are some things that would be pretty disappointing to see inside an otherwise well done head?
Pics of the inside of heads would be great too, if you had some :)
