How DO you make those Animal Costumes? (Fursuits)
Not mentioned in the Memories section? Washing suits with padding? 
14th-Jul-2008 09:01 pm
I looked in the Memories section, but didn't find anything that could answer the following questions. I've always heard that getting the padding/stuffing/foam wet is bad and that it is a pain in the tail to dry as well as prevent mold. Any and all advice about washing/drying padding/stuffing/foam is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

When washing a fursuit that may have padding sewn directly in the suit (i.e. non removable) such as for digitigrade legs or somewhere else, How would you go about washing that suit and/or drying those particular areas that have padding sewn in? Wouldn't the padding take forever to dry and there also be the possibility of mold?

I've also heard in the past of people putting footpaws in the wash. Wouldn't that be bad also as it would take forever for the foam to dry?

What about people who have dive skins or other undersuit garments where the padding/foam was sewn/glued directly to those garments rather than the bodysuit? How would you go about washing/drying the dive skin/garments?

Any tips or suggestions for fursuit bodysuits that have the tails directly sewn to the bodysuit? How would you wash that? How would the padding/stuffing in the tail be removable?

i am too scared to fully soak wash a suit and mine has padding

i wear a bodysuit under it which soaks up what little bit i swear. and when i am done i turn it inside out and give it a good spray down of febreez and that colorox anywhere spray (i test that first so far it has hurt nothing) i would rather follow this reguime everytime after wearing it than let it get skummy and then throughly clean it. i also brush and wash the fur from time to time with a few "pet bath wipes" as they work better than normal hand wipes...

but then again i avoid physicall extertion like the pluage when i am in suit and i just plain to sweat much to begin with....for those who just naturally get sweaty reall easy i can see the need for a full soak and wash..
