How DO you make those Animal Costumes? (Fursuits)
Black Furs

  Any way. so i was commissioned to make a basic black wolf tail with long fur.

and i come from the UK so finding, cheap, GOOD fur it extremely difficult. But after receiving my sample from


i was pleased. its so nice and wolf like !!! its unreal. its lovely.




It looks kind of silvery, but don't be thrown off, that's just it's sheen in the light. i promise its pitch black.
and at £10-£18. its not bad. reallly good fur, defiantly recommended. And it also has a few layers of fur lengths, so when it's shaved it has thick under fur which is cool.

and also, on another note. they must have sent me this extra sample on accident. But its pretty cool. i think it would come in handy with , scalies or maybe,. the front of a horse? But you see fursuit makers use pill fleece for scalies or around the muzzle as REALLLYYY short fur. And i think this would do the job pretty well too.


(the black fabric to the right) its really nice and soft. kinda like the nose of a horse. and its only £14 per metre, so not bad really.


just thought i'de share my findings :)

The problem is that most companies do 1m by 60", this is 1m by 30" so in reality you will be getting less for your money. They do have some lovely furs though!

The second one sounds like minky/baby blanket fur. I made some gloves out of it and it was nice because its a little stretchy and the backing is soft so I didn't need to line them

Pay for one of their full fur swatch packs, it's worth it! My favourite is their Moulin Rouge fur! It's this lovely, dense red with black tips! :)
