How DO you make those Animal Costumes? (Fursuits)
Fursuit collars 
7th-Jun-2011 09:24 pm
I havent been able to find a good tutorial on how to make them so far sorry if my searching skills just failed epically

How would one go about making a fursuit sized collar? I heard small belts sometimes due the trick but Ive been having a hard time finding that kinda of belt :c

Or does anyone know anywhere I can buy a collar that big?

I have an XL breed dog collar that I think would work well with a fursuit. I found it at walmart for less than $10. :3

There are also several websites that make custom dog collars. You can get the length/width you need. Though, they can be pricy.

I don't actually have a finished fursuit yet, so I can't say how well a dog collar would work...but the cheap walmart ones are good for just testing it out.

Mine is red, but its the same size. good exaggerated buckle and D-ring to go allong with a fursuit. :3

depends on materials, but they can go from $35 up...the one above is leather, can be with or without spikes, studs, conchoes...any number of things, and I can provide custom brassy name tags etched with yer fursuits name.

Seconding all of the above, or you can go to your local leathercrafter (wink!) to make a custom one. ;)
