    Hello all! I've been looking around at different suits online and I think sometime in the future I'd like to try my hand at making a partial for myself. It'd be a great experience to have, especially since I've been dabbling in crafts and traditional work more recently.

    I'd like you guys' opinions on how suitable for a suit you think my sona would be! I'd obviously put together some better turnarounds as far as references go, but this is what she looks like:

    I think my main concern would be the ears since I haven't yet come across a suit with ears as tall or as large, and the tail could also pose a bit of a challenge too given how long/fluffy it is.

    Foaming out the ears won't be an issue, so I wouldn't worry about that. Your head in general, will be straightforward. You could frame out the glasses with coat hanger wire and lexan discs as well.

    As far as the tail, you'll just need to find material to suit with longer fur or build a wider frame with shorter fur. There's several construction techniques to build that.

    There are a lot of online video references, so watch as many as you can before starting.

    Anything can be a fursuit if you try hard enough.

    From the suits I have seen and the look of drawings for your sona I would think it would be possible.

    That's good to hear re: the ears! I've seen sellers online that sell accessories like glasses, but most of them don't quiiite look exactly like the ones I draw on my sona, so making them myself that way would probably be the better alternative.

    I'd definitely be doing tons of research before I get started, especially when it comes to actually building everything. I think I'm most thankful that I only have one fur color to deal with...makes furring a lot easier!

    That's definitely true. I've seen some incredibly complex suits out there.

    I'm glad to hear that, thank you!

    Personally, to save tedious work with the glasses, I'd just buy premade discs of plexiglass off eBay. (Search: Plexiglass disc). Itll save you the work of making them perfectly round as well.
