Alright, just like anyone else, I need some spare cash.
I also LOVE making fursuits, and I think practice will make at least halfway perfect.

My site has gone down, sadly, but now I've got my little ducks in a row.

I have only ever built a suit of my fursona. Started as a partial with the following: Mask, feetpaws, handpaws, a tail, and arm and leg sleeves. (As seen in http://www.furaffinity.net/view/2593650/ )

Yeah, not the best.
But look at what I do, as I learn extremely quickly.
(Thread here: http://forums.furaffinity.net/threads/75616-Fursuit-Photos )

Save for a few seams that need to be tightened, it's right as rain.
You have to admit, major improvement. Imagine how much the improvement will rise with even more practice?

What I am offering for the moment are PARTIALS. (Hands, feet, tails, ears, masks)
Or, you can get parts off of me on their own.

Costs would be as follows:
-Hands: Cost of supplies (will vary) + $20 labor + Cost of shipping. (On average: $35-$40)
-Ears: Cost of supplies (will vary) + $20 labor + Cost of shipping. (On average: $35-$45)
-Tails: Cost of supplies (will vary) + $25 labor + Cost of shipping. (On average: $45-$50)
-Feet: Cost of supplies (will vary) + $40 labor + A PAIR OF YOUR SHOES + Cost of shipping. (On average: $80-$90)
-Masks: Cost of supplies (will vary) + $100 labor + Cost of shipping. (On average: $150-$200)
-Partials: All of the above (sans ears) + Extras (i.e. sleeves) if desired + Cost of shipping. ($380-$420)

Mind you, these are all give-or-take. They're general ideas.
If you want cast resin eyes instead of toony follow-me's, then the cost will rise.
If your fursona is a major pain in the balls (i.e. heavy on markings), then the cost will rise.

For markings/shading, I use acrylic paints. I NEVER, EVER, EVER use markers on my suits.

Masks are all-foam in design, so are relatively loose fitting (not too loose, though!) and very comfortable. Very well-articulated moving jaws can be added as well.

Sorry that I can't elaborate much more. That is pretty much it.

EDIT:
Ah, yes.
Ref sheets would be very, very, VERY nice as well. :V
Unless you just need something basic like white wolf feet with black claws.

EDIT 2:
May I also add that the cost of supplies could easily go way, way down if I already have things I need to make your specific order.

Define rough?
I'd be good with any species.
As far as cost, I'm sure it'd run the same with the costs I put up.

I just meant because of the stripe patterns :3 Aaaaaand would you take payments? I'd be totally fine with you waiting to even start until we reach half way or something.

I<3 your suit,
wondering how much you would charge for just a head..
of Shasta, she dosen't have much markings, well you can see here;

http://www.furaffinity.net/view/4020393

She would fall into the range of $150-$200, as you can see under masks.
I'll need to talk to my parents (as I am underage) about whether or not I will be ok with taking commission. But they are cool with it more often than not. :3

If you do intend to get serious, we can go over specifics and price out a more accurate number via PMs, email, or otherwise.

I am not financial wizard, but yeah, payments would be ok.
For these larger projects I'd like to ask for a down payment, anyway.
I'd also need a ref image of your sona.

What exactly are you looking for? Head, paws, partial?

The only part that'd be really difficult would be the tail and face, seeing as the tail is stripes with the off-white underside, and the face has those markings. The body (even though I am guessing what you want is a partial) is that reddish-brown, and the legs/feet gradate to black.

Are you just looking for a general red panda, or a specific character that is one?
Realistic or toony?

Agh, so many questions to ask.

It's even funnier that you've already got me looking at the fur I'd need to order for this. Fff.
I get too hyper about making these suits, I swear.
 
I'm looking for a generic red panda. For simplicity, rather than doing the upper half of her body (I'm just going to explain it like it's a full suit, since its easier for me to say rather than lobbing it off at a certain point lol) her arms up to the elbows are black / gloved, the rest of her arms is the rusty red color. Chest area is black, rest of her body is rusty red. Tail has tan/cream stripes in it and ends in black like: http://www.travelsinparadise.com/australia/sydney/pictures/zoo-red-panda-01.jpg, face has the typical vertical tan/cream stripes like: http://www.vilaszoo.org/uploads/images/54019_Red_Panda.jpg.

-With the mask, I'd do the markings as-is.
-The arms/gloves: which I'd do elbow-length anyway as a basic thing - would be all black, seeing as the red panda's "arm" isn't red until the shoulder. From what I see in the pic, ivory or white claws*.
- Feet: Four toes, all black fur with the ivory or white claws* as well.
- Tail: Their tails are rather long, so I'll need to snag a tailbone-to-mid calf measurement off of you (as well as many others)

*(optional: add $.75 per foot claw (large claws); this'd be $6 for claws on both feet, then $.50 for (small) finger claws - I'm guessing 5 fingers on each hand - $5 for both hands to be clawed.)

If you wish for sleeves, it'll cost $20 extra for both arms. I include short ankle-covers (to wear under jeans/pants so your actual skin doesn't show at all) for free, but leg covers will also be another $20 for both, and would require more measurements.

Here is the fur I am aiming use: http://www.distinctivefabric.com/fabric.php?product=SLDLGHRFUR1

I would use the "Burgundy Stringy" (I'd try to comb out the 'stringy' as much as possible), "Ivory", and... yeesh... I'd have to wait until black got back in stock, because my other provider is out of black as well. But it should be back soon, hopefully. I ask because I want to make sure you find it acceptable.

With the markings, as I specified, the cost may go up a little due to it being a major pain.
Probably only $5-$10 at most if it irks me; I'm not the type to gripe about work as I'm the one getting paid to do what I love here.

Some details about mask complexity and whatnot.

- Style: Realistic-ish (like mine) or toony and cute? (No cost variant, just a good thing to know)
- Eyes: Static toony eyes, follow-me toony, or cast-resin realistic eyes (i.e. mine.)? Also, color? (About $20 added for cast-resin as they are a pain in the butt.)
- Jaw: Static or moving? (Add $15 for moving jaw)
- Teeth: None? Some? (inside of mouth would be soft felt, tongue included. Teeth cost extra, but not that much. $1 for the front bottom teeth, $3 for the bottom jaw. Here's a secret: on a moving jaw, only the bottom front teeth are really visible when speaking. Bottom jaws, however, do look good. I am reluctant to do full top-and-bottom jawsets as I haven't done one yet.)

For measurements... agh.
We can cover that in an email. Heck, if I am online when you are, we could even cover this on webcam via Skype. I'm better visually explaining things, anyway. The link to my account is the gray X between my AIM and FA links.

As for shipping, thank God you're in the US.
It'll still be expensive, though, as fursuits aren't light.
(My suit probably weighs about 20 pounds in full)

We can discuss finances in more privacy.

Personally, I think toony would be adorable.
But this is your suit; what am I talking about? :3

Oh yeah, postage...
I have never shipped international before, but I could still do it.
It's on you, but I have no idea how much it costs...

One time, I seriously had an order for feet, she sent me her shoes and put a $100 bill in the box (in the shoe).
I did her feet, and I went to the post office, paid for shipping, then put her $10-$15 of cange back in her completed foot. XD

And it's worse that I could do payments like that.
But I wouldn't take Euros, so, yeah... They don't do much here. :3

I'm looking at maybe a partial sans tail since I have 2 awesome ones already. I don't have the money right now..but when I do (maybe in 2-3 months) I will check back in ^.^

It'll actually be a lot better if you check in for business then, seeing as I do have some things to sort out in the next month.

But I will most certainly be happy to help; I love snow leopards. <3

Hunh....I may take you up on this in the future. Would those prices be similar for something like a bat? I'd be looking for a scary Halloween-style bat with big teeth XD Again, this is all tentative and probably won't happen for a while.

Thank you, though!

The prices would all be the same for any species. :3
It may cost some more to pull off the wings, but I would be more than happy to provide my services.

Meep! owo I don't have a ref sheet yet (Working on that) But I have some art and a description. >w<

http://www.gaiaonline.com/forum/art...my-fursona-paying-1-mil-or-more/t.63670523_1/

I was trying to get a reference sheet commissioned on gaia, but I haven't had any luck. ; o; But I was wondering how much a fursona like the one I described in that title post cost? ^.^

Also, this is tentative. I would like a partialsuit, (which would probably make the crafting of the suit easier since I don't really have any markings on me. owo Only that I have a lavender belly. x3 ) but I need to get that reference image done, and my birthday's coming up in the next month, so I'll have monies then. :3 Definitely considering this though, your prices/quality are win. ^w^
