From what I know of jointed stilts you really shouldn't run in them- the stress can be too much on them I think, and the risk is too great that the joint will suddenly bend when you land on that foot. If you want to run, non-jointed would be better.
Afraid I can't answer your other questions though.
Bushbabies were my favorite animal as a kid :)
For the bangs, I would normally suggest using a long fur (For this it'd be LONG), but since you've already glued down the fur, I'm not sure what to tell ya' :/
It's cute so far :3
I'm making my first fullsuit, and I was wondering, what is the average fur length people get for a wolf? no extra hair tufts or anything, just a basic wolf.
What would you recommend?

I am so incredibly jealous right now O.o
The only con I can go to is FWA, and that's only if I can get a ride. Plus I couldn't go this year and so I've gotta wait a whole 'nother year.

Hey, just a warning you guys, I refreshed the page for this durrsuit tumblr and my firewall blocked a virus. So... proceed with caution. It's a great site for sure, but whatever they've posted recently has a virus, probably in one of the photos.
So, (As obnoxious and tedious as this may sound) the thing that seems to just make sense to me is to make it sit lower down on your head, essentially shift the entire face downwards. I don't know if it's the best way to do it, but that's the first thing that came to mind.
Or you could make the...
I used $10 for 1/2 foam for the base, and about $25 for the fur from Mendels (This is for short pile fur, depending on the animal, you may want to pay more for the longer furs)
And... I don't know how much hot glue cost since I already had sticks, but I used... somewhere around 5 mini glue gun...
I can't help but thank you for actually telling us your opinion on this in a respectful way. I've seen so many people just flat out say something like "People can't be animals." And "You're insane." So can I just say thanks for being respectful in sharing your opinion and putting it in a way...
