I have two questions today.
So, I'm starting to work on a SUPER SECRET PROJECT (SHH DON'T TELL ANYONE ABOUT IT)
but it's going to be a realistic Hoffman's Two-Toed Sloth fullsuit.http://laurier.vsb.bc.ca/studentp/RyanY/sloth.jpg
(full body image)
I'm thinking about making 5-6" claws for both the hands and feet, but I'm worried about them breaking-- yes, I'll be moving at snail-rate while fursuiting in it, but I still don't want to have ultra long claws that will shatter or break in half. What would be the best material to make them out of? (I'm not going to trust Sculpey with this one.)
Second-- The fur. I'll probably be using the Mongolian fur from Syfabrics.com, but that's only 3" pile. Is there anything longer and more sloth like?
Also, as another random question, what would be a good material to use for the nose?http://www.lpzoo.org/sites/default/files/images/facts/sloth.jpg?1285258210
Cute little sloth nose d'awwwwww
OH ALSO the little pawsieshttp://wwwdelivery.superstock.com/Image/4201/Thumb/4201-23287.jpg
From all the photos I've seen, it looks as if they don't have seperate fingers, but rather a round stub with large claws coming out of it-- would it work to just make a slip on glove thing with the same idea?
Thanks for tolerating all of my questions xD
