    Best Time to Fursuit During a Con

    To my knowledge, that's usually the fursuit parade. But I think it'd be good if they did something beyond that. Or at least, made it easier for people to figure out "this is the best time to suit".

    Removing oily residue from fursuit fabric

    Awesome, thanks for the tip. I'll give that a shot and see how it goes.

    Removing oily residue from fursuit fabric

    I used Folex to remove the stains from my feetpaws. Worked like a charm. However, since I had to apply the Folex multiple times, there is now an oily residue on the fur. How do I get rid of that?

    Best Time to Fursuit During a Con

    So at AC this year, I fursuited more than I ever have before. It was a lot of fun. But, and this is the point of the thread: there weren't a lot of other suiters around. When I was out, most other suiters weren't, and when I wasn't suiting, a lot of suiters were out. This disappointed me, as I...

    Need some advice for commissioning a fursuit.

    I think this thread is mislabeled. You're not asking for advice on commissioning a suit; rather, you're asking for recommendations for ref sheet/avatar artists. In that case, you're probably looking in the wrong forum section. As for general advice for fursuits, I'd recommend taking a look at...

    Very slim fursuit ;3

    The suit in question was made by Winfox (IIRC). However, he doesn't really do commissions, I don't think. My suggestion is to look around at fursuit makers, see if they do form-fitting suits (check their gallery), and ask them if they'd make a form-fitting or skin-tight suit for you. I'd...

    Cheap partials?

    That's true. Furbuy is a good choice for pre-made suits. If you want to commission something, though, don't expect to pay less than $800 if you want something that's of good quality. Any less than that and you run the risk of shoddy workmanship.

    Cheap partials?

    How cheap do you mean? Like, what is your budget?

    How expensive is a typical full-body fursuit from Don't Hug Cacti?

    Don't apologize. You haven't done anything wrong. Fursuiting is a complicated business, and there is a lot of nuance to it. If you want more info on commissioning a suit, check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wEj-vDMHRz4

    How expensive is a typical full-body fursuit from Don't Hug Cacti?

    Asking the maker for a price quote would definitely be your best bet. Yeah, it might take time to get back to you, but at least you will have an accurate number. As for quality, I'd check out the Fursuit Critique FA page. They have a whole list of makers and information about what people have...

    Quadsuit ideas/help?

    That is perfectly okay. It's your suit, you can do whatever you want with it. As for the claustrophobia, yeah, I can see that being a problem. I've heard of two solutions in that regard; your mileage may vary, so take them with a grain of salt. First, try thinking of the suit as an extension of...

    Quadsuit ideas/help?

    Not a problem. I like helping. But yes, I will encourage you to start small, so that you can get practice with the fundamentals before you go for the big ambitious projects. Though don't be too scared of making a full suit. The only difference between a partial and a full suit is the...

    Quadsuit ideas/help?

    All the big-name fursuit makers have multiple points of contact: FurAffinity, DeviantArt, Twitter, Tumblr, maybe even email. Try different methods, but don't be too spammy, because they might be less willing to help if you pester them. Generally, be humble, but also be specific. You'll probably...

    Minky Fabric For Body Suit?

    Ditto on the seal fur. My fursona is a dragon, and my maker recommended seal fur for her, stating that seal fur stretches well and looks good for a form-fitted body, without looking too fluffy (unless that's what you want). Also ditto on your fursona being friggin cute. =D
