    Making my first head

    I've been wanting a fursuit for some years now, but it seems like it'd be less expensive to make it on my own (expensive regardless, of course). I wanna be able to support my favorite creators one day, though! I think I'm going to document my progress here, but in the mean time, does anyone...

    Hi, so i plan on eventually making a fursuit head of my main fursona sometime in the future which seems simple enough, though there's one thing, he has shoulder length hair. i very rarely see fursuits with long hair, and every tutorial for hair on a fursuit i've ever seen only describes how to...

    What sewing machine do you use?

    I did some searching and failed to come up with any threads that dealt with machines that weren't at least 5 years old, so I'm bringing it up. Since there are a lot of people here who either make fursuits for fun or as a business I thought I would ask you all in hopes that it would benefit...

    Extra low crotch?

    So i'm going to be making an otter fullsuit. Otters have stumpy looking legs and long bodies, and I've seen suits with dropped crotches but I'm wondering if I can use extra newspaper etc. during the patterning process to get that true otter look? Or would it just come out looking weird?
