Half suit Digigrade leg tutorial

I want to share this idea I came up with the community for making half suit didigrade legs, and also an alternative to the duck tape dummy I found useful. Below the first cut is pictures of how I made the legs and the next cut is the legs themselves. I'd appreciate feed back, comments or advice on how I can improve my method. Feel free to utilize it for your own purposes.

To make the half suit digigrade legs, I used a pair of old skin tight leggings, lots of news paper, a tape measure, and a hot melt glue gun, along with a pair of panty hose I didn't much care for.

Using the tape measure I took mesurements of my leg near about to my mid thigh, stuffing newspaper in the and measuring it to make sure it was the right dimensions. This served as my "duck tape dummy" of legs.

next part is to glue the foam to the legs to give it the right shape.

I measured the circumference of my legs all the way up my leg and also the lenght between different changes in circumference.


The last step I failed to get a photo of which was making a pattern from newspaper of the legs, cutting the fabric and then sewing them together and stretching them onto the foam legs. I then sewed the top of the legs to the leggings which would give them more space to move around then gluing the whole legs to the leggings.

I don't like how the fabric pulls a bit in the middle by the knee, but if you were making a pair completely out of fur you wouldn't be able to see that really.
