How DO you make those Animal Costumes? (Fursuits)
finally i have somthing new to post

beastcub beast fursuit
i have not posted anything new for a while.....i was in a working slump due the ammount of stressfull things going, and we were forced to reduce the size of my workroom (too big to be a "shed" and we could not afford permits...) so for 3 weeks i hardly did a thing as i had no real place to work.
working on commissions is what kept me sane, when working on them i easily slip into my happy place and i can forget all this crap.

anyway! enough about that time for the pictures of what i finially finished

Blaze dragon....a fursuit with lots of cleavage ...

Please NOTE: I was very shy about making this costume, I am rather modest person and this is my first boobsuit ....and the boobs are quite big which makes me bashfull...I am shy about posting this...so be nice...

 ..i tried to make them as natural as possible and have the "tear drop" shaped not beach balls...and i think they are "big" but not drastically big as the body size compliments them...

this costume has LOTS of seams in it!  i kept making tucks to get out the wrinkles. despite trimming the seams short they still made ridges so then i had to carfully trim the ridges down and its a tad choppy looking >,<
 then i ended up half a yard short on the red and sewed together my scraps as there was no way i was waitinga week+ for more

the model here is rather skinny compared to the commissioner so its all baggy.
i know i need to narrow the yellow on the neck flap ... But do the boobies look okay? in person they seem a bit off... but ya have to admit ladies, hardly any girl has a perfect set (i don't....TMI....)
i put in some padding for the kneecap and calf as i did not want the legs to look like pants


the tail like to swing to one side BUT i don't see that as a fault really as i think its more natural that way

here is the fursuit VS the ref images given to me to make this costume

 this is AS FAR AS I GO when it comes to more mature content, no suit from me will have nibbies or "lower deatils".

a few more pics in my site gallery http://www.beastcub.com/index.htm

and lastly, lol, i cannot help but imagine this costume in an "adults only" Barny movie XD

EDIT: i added this picture to show its proper fit while on the duct tape dummy as the model's body type is WAY different than the the owner's and the full body photos are very lose and baggy and the costume's figure is not filled right

I would never guess there were that many seams on the inside, you did an amazing job at hiding them, especially considering how short the fur is!

how did you dooo iiit~

i losely hand sewed it all first and then brushed the seams out before machine sewing and then burshed them again with a fine wire brsuh. up close you can see them a little but the seams are al 85-95% gone

oh god the boobs :(
3rd-Sep-2008 07:15 am (UTC)
hyper boobs are not my thing either, at least the build of the body is big so it kinda compliments the size, these on a skinny body O-o um no.

but then again hyper does exist in real life: one of my sister's friends in middle school, she had a big build but the poor girl was only 16 and had HUGE breasts simply huge, and she hated them, the shcool was leaniant with the dress code because it was hard for her to not show cleavage :(

I'll be honest, it's not a style I particularly like.

That being said, you did an impressive job matching the concept art and hiding your seams.

Nice work!

3rd-Sep-2008 07:32 am (UTC)
i like the character style...cept the "lumps" XD
big boobs both in furry and anime art can trun me away (unless its making fun of it)
i still love her face

i have a skunk commission now who is also going to have a similar sized chest...though with that one i am going to make them hollow and put fans in them XD a little crazy but the commissioner likes the idea

it may not be "my thing" but the costume afterall is not mine and i charge extra for the extra time and materials for the breasts so it works out

Regardless of subject matter, you pulled her anatomy off quite well =).

I did not really like the look of the boobs until I saw the art.

The only thing that is wrong is that the suit is that it is going on a person with a completely different figure from the concept. All of the lines are as in a close of a proportion as possible.

The boobs look funny to me, as I have big boobies. They also look 100 percent better than if you had done the round ones requested. They attach weird. But they do look just like the picture. A real boob attaches on all sides, but hangs a bit down at the bottom. There is no crease near the armpit. But as I said before, that is what is in the drawing. It shows cleavage all of the way around with a small attachment at the top. But who says a fur can not defy reality :)

When I make a top with a built in bra I usually start by pinching out two triangles at the bottom pointing in towards the nipple area. Or I pinch out an arch that looks more like the seam on a bra that goes from armpit over the nipple to down at the inside edge. Check out a bra to see what I mean or I can scan and send you a drawing. I also do one side, get it perfect and copy it for the other side.

I am not sure what the customers calves look like, but the ones on the costume need a little more filling. This may be going to be provided buy the customers own body?

The pile of the fur on the boobs looks great! And I love the curve in the tail!

Amazing job! Once again!

i actually added a bit to the calves and knee cap just to be sure they did not look flat like pants, the owner is pretty buff so their body should fill this out nicely and make the legs and such look way better.

i cannot wait to get some proper pics from the owner, they plan to wear it to furfright

The boobs are fine. They don't look real, but neither do large implants and neither does the drawing and that's the refer the customer provided so I would assume that is what they wanted. You did a very good job of following the fur around such a tight curve :)

What I don't like so much is the really long body and short skinny legs. It might just be the camera angle, but some girth to the lower legs will help balance out the wider torso and hips. I know you said you already padded it, but unless the customer has much larger legs than you, it needs to be more obvious.

There so much shaping to the body already that you almost have to go all the way with thick padding all over to make it look brought together.

the commissioner is WAY taller and WAY WAY wider than the model, i had to shove pillow stuffing between the model and the costume just to get the boobs to stand up and the hips
i added a pic of the fur on the dummy (which BTW was made while wearing the ice vest they plan to wear under the suit) to show its proper fit

The first thing I thought was, "This is a dragoness, this isn't roxikat!" Hehehe.

I'll echo what was said above. Great job, especially on the head in that pic.

I'm tall and thin, maybe I'll ask you for a suit sometime if I ever have a lot of cash to throw around. :)

Impressive! You always do such great work.

Parroting the "it's not my cup of tea" thing, but still an awesome job. Kudos! You always seem to work so FAST too.

(Also, not dissin' the character or anything, but am I the only one who finds the boobstache thing kinda weird? I understand head and spinefur, but random bush 'twixt the knockers seems a little out of place XD; )
3rd-Sep-2008 09:59 am (UTC)
the "boobstache" would make more sense on like a wolf as they have longer fur on the chest.
this i think was an attempt to balance out the black on the character?
3rd-Sep-2008 11:42 am (UTC)
i think part of the issue is not that "they are too big" its that "does it need boobs?"

the dragon in shrek is plenty fem and flirty and she does not even have sudgestive lumps.

i am fine with boobsuits as long as they stay at furcons and private shindigs
3rd-Sep-2008 11:44 am (UTC)
I am loving the term "boobsuit"
3rd-Sep-2008 06:48 pm (UTC)
Meeee too :P
3rd-Sep-2008 02:31 pm (UTC)
You did amazingly well. I've seen some suiters who've been doing this for several years and their boobs STILL look pointy. The ones you've done are perfectly rounded, and you hid the seams well (:

I'm not a fan of boob suits either, but, if someones paying you for it, and they LOVE what you've made, then I geuss its all well worth it :)
3rd-Sep-2008 03:47 pm (UTC)

Regardless, I appreciate your handiwork.
3rd-Sep-2008 04:50 pm (UTC)
Mweee! I love her! I will be making a boobsuit (lawl, at the term) eventually and maybe I will turn to you to help! Mine will have smaller boobs (since I'm tiny and thin!) but the concept is the same and she'll be a ratter (Needs tp be more rats).
3rd-Sep-2008 05:31 pm (UTC)
you've done an amazing job at making the suit look just as the customer wanted! :]
3rd-Sep-2008 06:24 pm (UTC)
I actually like her, one of the better 'boobsuits' I've seen lol!! I really love the head too, she's got such a sweet sneaky smile.
