The second series of photos are the nose that will be used with the head. It's sculpted with Sculpy, holes punched through, a screen made from panty nose and stained with a black Copic glued on the back, and 2-way stretch spandex over it.

One of my friends was at the mall for Halloween and ran into this fuzzy, and it bothers me that I don't even know who he is! I feel I should at least know the suits in my area (as I thought I was the only one here!)
Edit: Proof that sometimes you need to also search the comments here, and not just the main posts - http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a34/fallimar/DigiPatterning.jpg Fallimar posted this over 2.5yrs ago now and it is EXACTLY what I needed to explain things to me and my poor memory. This will really come in handy now, and I start cutting directly from the fur on monday! =D
I have checked all patterning, bodysuit, and digitigrade legs tags here and could not find something to help...
OKAY SO all my fur for Poppy is here (All 6yrds of it for her bodysuit and extra). Now as a night hobby after work, I plan on working a tad more on her; or just putting a whole day aside next week to make her; to distract me once Sam goes home. BUT i've run into a problem. I DON'T want to use a DTD (My partner is the closest person to me and really the only one I am okay with helping me, and he is going home this weekend), and obviously a DTD for digitigrade legs are out of the question due to this.
Either way I plan on filling them with Polyfil as I can get 1KG from work for $4 (epic discount FTW!), could I possibly just use Matrice's method and create invisible zipper pouches to put the polyfil in? http://www.matrices.net/digitigrade.asp They won't be as big, just a slight digitigrade look for my Poppy.
I never planned on making her digitigrade, but i've been researching Red Panda/Raccoon anatomy, and it seems they are slightly digitigrade (looking) when standing on 2 legs (art is not mine, but as i've found - the best ref so far for legs) http://chelsealorenedwards.blogspot.....red-panda.html
Not only that, but how to I make a bodysuit with the digitigrade legs? All my fur is short pile fur, I don't want too many seams, but am happy to do the shirt/pants attachment SO LONG AS I can still use a sewing machine to sew it, as my left wrist is on probation from work by order of doctor, and I am left handed D:
Better yet, here is a badly modded version of Poppy's fursuit reference on the side to show what I want to do:
Help please? >:
So I just want to get a few opinions on it, and just see what you guys think of it. Thanks in advance.
Ps. I know there are a few other inaccuracies (lack of equal sides etc) I was going to fix them later, but am now reconsidering the whole thing.
Just for anyone who's interested in it, I thought it was a neat idea and though others might enjoy it :)
EDIT: I also made a Vision and Durability test video, best to watch in 720P (HD)
