    Making a fursuit in an unconventional style

    How would you guys approach making a partial fursuit in a kind of dark cartoony style, a bit like a Tim Burton drawing? I’m finding it difficult to see how I could get that level of detail on a suit. In particular I’d like the eyes to have slit pupils like a cat, but for there to be no coloured...

    What makes a well-constructed suit?

    Hello! I'm a beginning fursuit maker, with maybe only three suits under my belt. As I progress, it's becoming more and more important to me that the suits I make are comfortable to the people who wear them! So, I need your help: what makes a good suit, in your opinion? From bread-and-butter...

    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?

    Blind/blank eyes

    I've seen a handful of suits with pure blank eyes like Briar here, but I'm not sure how to do it. I've been going with the buckram and plastic method, but it hasn't been looking right. If I go with buckram just for the pupil, it doesn't give the right effect, plus gives em a really dopey look...

    Balaclava on balaclava?

    I'm gonna make my head on balaclava and just recently it occured to me that if it's a part of the head it might shorten the life of the suit due to disinfecting and being unable to wash it properly. So... should I get another balaclava to wear it under the balaclava that is gonna be the base of...

    How much does it cost to make a fursuit head/partial and other questions

    So I'm thinking about maybe trying to make a partial fursuit myself (mostly because it's a cheaper option and sounds like a fun project) But I don't know what the average price is for materials or what type of stuff I need (I live in California) I tried looking up tutorials but they're a bit...

    How much?

    What is average yardage total for a full body suit? I know it's different for each person, but can I get a general idea of how much is needed for a 5'6 male?

    Fursuit Neck Help

    Hi! So my suit is done, but the neck sticks out weirdly from the rest of the costume but is too small to be tucked it. It sticks out like a square and looks pretty bad. How can I get it to look connected to the body like most fursuit necks do?
