    Fursuit sales and auction sites- your favorites?

    Hi there, I'm a noob to the furry world though I have been a maskmaker for many years. I'm getting ready to auction my first publicly available partial, and am wondering, where are good places to post/list to get lots of eyeballs on? That's probably more important to me than actually selling...

    Quick question re tail patterns

    Figuring since I've made heads, I can probably manage tails! Question- when making patterns for tails, to what extent do you take in to account the length of the fur pile you want to use? If you want to make the tail X wide, do you subtract some of the length of the pile from your pattern so...

    Almost done with my second head build, pretty much just needs airbrushing at this point. Here it is! <a href=""> Question.... how to tell when a spring in the jaw has sprung and needs to be replaced, or if there's something else interfering with the jaw movement? This guy's mouth snaps shut...

    Quick question re jawset springs

    Getting ready to glue the fur to my base, yay!! Question- is some kind of cover put over the jawset springs prior to gluing the fur on, to keep the springs from snagging on seams and such? It's tickling in the back of my head that I've seen this done in tutorials online, though now that I'm...

    Hoods.. to line or not to line?

    I finished sewing up the fur for "Maxine", my second head build,today, I'm happy with how she looks so far! "> Question- to line the hood or not?

    Zipper Installation Methods?

    So I've been plugging away on my sophomore head build. I have a punch list of improvements I want to make from my last head, and one of them is the zipper in the hood. The one in my first head came out pretty good, it is very functional and easy to use, but I wish it had less bulk/stiffness...

    My second head build

    New blog post chronicling my continuing adventures with my sophomore head build here. I'm excited to be using my own resin head, one I sculpted, molded and cast myself, though it took a lot of fiddling to get it to work with DVC parts (nose, teeth, etc.) Someday I'd very much like to sculpt my...

    Hand Sewing vs Machine Sewing- thoughts?

    I'm working on my second head, and one of the improvements I want to make over my first head is fur that fits more closely to the resin base, so it obscures its form less. (Here's pics of my first head: <a href="Meet Max, the very first furry mask made by Sans Souci...

    To flip or not to flip- pattern making question

    Hello all- I'm working on my second head now. One of the improvements I'd like to make this time is have the fur fit the resin blank more tightly, so that the mask has a better shape overall. I used DVC's tutorial online to make the pattern for the first mask, in which only one side of the head...
