    Hello! This is my first time attempting a fursuit so I have a few worries. Mostly on fur choice and what I should do, but I'm not completely in the dark since I sew cosplays and so I know my way around a sewing machine.

    Now for my question- What would be better? A Shaggy Minky Fur .5 inch pile or something like a mongolian Faun Fur 1.5'' pile.

    The fursuit im going to work on is a goat/sheep/monster-ish creature named Baby. She's the light of my life! Anyways I love the idea of soooooft fur like the Minky, but I dont know if it would look right? Or I should go with the longer pile and shave it at parts I need too?

    I know the face will be shaved/trimmed and the paws fingers will be also a shorter fur, but at the moment I'm not entirely sure.

    So I wanted to get some opinions on what I should do? Like buy a little bit of the Minky and the rest the long pile maybe?

    1/2" pile is not enough to work with, unless you're happy with the look unshaved. Remember, you can always make it shorter but you can't make it longer.1
