    Show off your first fursuit VS your latest!

    I want to preface this with that there should be NO judgement here, everyone starts somewhere. I want this to be a positive thread showing how far you suit makers have come! This was the first one I ever made, I was 14 and matrices.net was a big inspiration to me so I used their guide. It...

    Critique: Foam base too bumpy

    So, I've begun work on my first fursuit head, and I love it SO MUCH. :D The process is very fun and exciting, and I'm already learning so much. Since I would like to make another in the future, I wanted to get some advice so that the next one can be better. Here's what I have so far: (i...

    Question about fursuit making

    Hiya I've been working on my first successful fursuit (the others failed cos I found the bucket method hard) and I was wondering where you guys get your buckram? I'm a British furry so I may not know the American stores well, and I pay in £ pounds. I did find buckram here but the thing is, the...

    Adding long hair?

    I plan on working on my first fursuit...if/when I ever have spare money to get the materials. So in the meantime I’m living off tutorials and practicing my stitching. It’s going to be a long term project and my family is pitching in to help as they love supporting my art projects. Materials make...

    I want to make a head

    So, I have never made a fursuit head and I have looked at a few tutorials. I understand the basics of what I need to do but I was wondering how I should go about translating my fursona's eyes into physical form. (You can see a few pictures of him here.) Would buckram work? Just put it in and not...

    Making a suit: DO'S AND DONT'S (my opinions/tips)

    I've been meaning to make a thread about this even though it's probably been talked about hundreds of times before on here. This is from my knowledge of fursuiting and making one from scratch. Making a fursuit can, most of the time, be a stressful, long, and expensive process (especially for the...

    Is this Lycra Balaclava ski mask good for protecting a suithead from sweat?

    Note: I did have a little bit of assurance that this specific mask will be fine, but I have HA and anxiety and need to ask more people to be sure before I commit to wearing this in a con and it all going wrong xD I went through an old forum from 2012 about first time fursuiting tips and saw...

    Hi from a new fur.

    Hello every one, even though I have watched the fur community from the side lines for many years, I never really had a chance to try to get into suiting up or anything. If anything I guess you could say I have just sort of admired. But, I have decided to suit up for Dragon Con for next year. And...

    Very first Attempt at a Fursuit Head! In progress...

    Hi everyone! Nice to meet you. I'm looking for a little C&C on my very first attempt at a fursuit head, before I get so far I can't fix it! The carving is a little rough, I know. It'll be smoothed out some before adding fur. And if the eyes aren't even, well, I kind of haphazardly stuck the...

    First Fursuit Head Build!!

    Hey FA, I'm a vet student who is new to the furry world (although my childhood drawings might suggest otherwise). I have been looking for a fun and challenging project to work during my summer break and I thought I'd craft a fursuit head. I'm going to sell it when it's done if it's good enough...
