I'm writing about suiting for Furry Nation, my book about the fandom and the presence of anthropomorphism in contemporary mainstream society and throughout history - www.furrynation.com I've been in the fandom since the end of the 1980s (you heard that right) so I think I have a pretty good handle on what furry's about. One aspect of suiting I want to write about is creating digitigrade aka "jackleg" suits. I know it involves padding the the front of the thigh and the back of the calf to create the illusion of an elevated ankle and I've seen some that achieve this better than others*. I'd appreciate peoples' opinion on the subject, why they wanted jacklegs on their suits instead of plantigrade, how they built theirs & if they were pleased with the results etc. (I'd especially like to hear from suitbuilders re building them for others.) Oh yeah, here's a picture of me in my "Komos" suit, built by Artslave - www.furaffinity.net: Here's pointing at you, kid! by Comus Thanx much! *When I was a kid I believed animals had "backward" knees, not realizing they were actually the equivalent of a human ankle & they were standing on the equivalent of our toes; I think this is a pretty common misconception kids have.
