x-posted to personal journal and fursuit:

As I'm still waiting on fur to arrive so that I can finish the last of my commission queue (so that I can open for commissions again), I decided to work on another suit for myself. I was going to wait until she was finished to show her at all, but I decided I'd love to get some of your opinions on her, and on the paw I made. I've always done standard paws with no pads, and foam claws, but thought something newer and nicer was in order.

So, her name is Opal, and as far as I can tell, she's a neon demon fossa. =)



The first image shows the start on the head. I painted the eyes on white perspex, and covered it then with a thin sheet of clear perspex. You look through the tear ducts for vision (my first attempt at this, and not *too* bad, considering). The last image shows the fur that I found for her, which is a wonderful short royal purple plush, with neon green underfur. The paw pads are black PVC fabric, and the claws and plastic bearclaws. The long purple on the wrist is white Montery Mills fox fur dyed purple using RIT dye.

So, suggestions, comments, ideas! She's going to be in a costume contest the weekend of August 1st, so she'll only be a partial (for the sake that the contest is during a 4.35k walkathon), but anything you think would help me win the AUD$300 prize would rock!
