So I recently had a nice session with some friends and we made a duct tape dummy of me. I figured that I should get one done for my suit that I'm currently planning. My question is this. I will not be able to stuff it for 3 more weeks, so I'm wondering if having it gently folded in half and tucked under my bed in my apartment is a bad idea? Will this warp the dummy in some way? If so how should I store it for the 3 weeks prior to the stuffing.
First shaving, I'm using Fabric.com's Beaver on my first head and I'm wondering if anyone has used this for a head before, if so was it necessary to shave it down? And any pictures would be a great help as I like to see some results of both fs possible, I have heard color can make a difference so I'll mention it's 98% black.
Kind of with that what is a good price for a first time blade? I don't want to spend too much and end up ruining it due to my cluelessness and experimenting. x-x Anything in particular I should look for in one?
Second I couldn't find a particular blue I was looking for so I'm going with a white instead, thing is I don't want to have to remove and replace the white once it's done since I'm starting to like the idea. So I was wondering if there is a way to make the markings interchangeable particularly with the blue able to just be placed over the white? I think saw a similar question before but I can't find it.
I've looked through the memories but I couldn't find much. I know there's several folks out there though that have a great deal of experience with latex. So. My first attempt to make latex paws... failed. Mostly due to having pretty much a 50-50 mix of paint to latex. Second try I added more cornstartch, silica filler, and a bit less paint. The result is fantastic! My only problem: instead of being a deep red they are more of a darker pink. Mind you I am using acrylic paints to perform the color change. Perhaps liquitex latex paint is my solution? Would that work? If not, what would be best for dying latex the proper color?
Well, last night I thought it'd be a bright idea to trick or treat in my fursuit. Well, it drew a lot of attention, and I was even called the big bad wolf.
But, halfway through, I got thyese weird chest pains and so I took itt off and didn't wear it for the rest of the night. I had had diffaiculty breathing in it, bad, but I thought that was normal. When I took off the mask, I felt lightheaded followed by the feeling that a ton of weight/blood was in my head and it was slowly dripping/ oozing down into the rest of my body. I didn't take many breaks to hydrate, and my friend's mom was getting snippy when I did so I had to hurrry along.
I only took drinking breaks after wearing it, whoch was two juice boxes, a pop, and sme water. I felt fine the rest of the night and part of this morning.
I first noticed that I felt extra out of breath. Soon after I felt chest pains. These alternated and flared up at different times throughout today. Exercise and heat made the pain and shortness of breath worse. It is hurting as I type.
So, did I like, overstretch my breathing muscles or make myself sick? I am sure I probably should've hydrated mysef more but... I didn't have anything.
Where do I get a good mink fur from? Not a pelted one.
Im sorry if this has been asked b4 but I was wondering where you guys buy your resin? Also, How to make molds for noses and stuff. Where can I find the info about making Molds for noses and claws? How would I craft the molds itself?
