    I'm sorry it's too big, but the tutorial I was using wasn't particularly helpful or detailed. I think it's fine the way it is since I have shaved off some foam since those pics. Never heard of Jo-Anne's or Hancock's but I'll try searching some more, thanks for the info. Don't got a whole lot of...

    Partial Fursuit Questions

    Finished foaming the head, now I need to fur it. Anyone have any suggestions where I can buy decent quality, CHEAP and INEXPENSIVE faux fur? What I am looking for: - short fur - light brown to tan in color - enough to cover my head and make ears - inexpensive and cheap - decent to good...

    Suits at cons

    I don't like hugging anyone period even if they are family, but if I was someplace and a kid wanted to hug me, sure, I'd oblige, but I wouldn't really want to hug anyone else my age or older if I don't know them because I'm just naturally wary of strangers.

    Eating in a Fursuit!?

    Agreed, like I said in an earlier post, I would just take my head off to eat or drink something instead of trying to slide a straw through the mouth.

    Eating in a Fursuit!?

    I personally would just take my fursuit head off, lot easier that way for me @_@'

    Tore up the previous head I did and made another....this time the snout actually IS horizontal with my head and doesn't point downward, plus the head actually fits me well enough now. I am really proud and optimistic of this one, since I actually made three failure heads before I got to this...

    I only said that I don't know how to sew so basically I will have no idea what I am doing, but my mom does, and no money is not an issue. >_> Just transportation because I can't drive and I have to get one of my parents to drive me to the Wal-Mart.

    I am not sewing it because I don't have any sewing supplies plus I don't know how and I tried gluing it down the other day and I realized I glued something in the wrong place and I tried to pull it off which took like 10 minutes and I ended up ripping a chunk out of the mesh that I had to fix...

    I used the pins since I was worried that I would glue something down in the wrong place and would have to pry it apart or start over. I think I will continue my head even though it's in a downward diagonal angle like this -> /

    Are people scared of Furries?

    I think some people just think fursuiters are like child molesters, using the costumes to lure in kids.

    Just wondering but is a balaclava head easier to make than a frame mesh one? I think I messed up and need to start over because my head's muzzle is pointing downward not horizontal with my head and I need to fix it.

    Started adding the foam to the plastic mesh base as soon as I got home this afternoon....burnt my fingers with the hotglue gun like a million times too lol The foaming isn't done yet, I only mostly did one side. Made a bottom jaw out of foam and it hangs wide open when I put the head on and I...

    Partial Fursuit Questions

    Okay, I tore up the previous thing I did and started over, using a better tutorial than the one I was using. Here are the photos: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/3730301 http://www.furaffinity.net/view/3730365 I think it looks a heck of a lot better than the first one, and it actually looks...

    Partial Fursuit Questions

    I don't have a balaclava thing and all I got is a lot of plastic mesh, about 10 or so sheets of it because I thought that was what I needed. I made the frame and I think it looks fine but when I put it on my head it looks really off. I am using brass brads to hold it together. I am doing a...

    Okay I got all the supplies now and I am trying to make the meshing. I am really confused and have no idea what I am doing since I can't find a tutorial that helps me really well and all the ones I have seen or read are very very vague and doesn't help me at all. For example, I did the mesh...
