Hey, so, I just figured I would come on here and ask some furs potentially on how they saved up/budgeted for their fursuit(s). While I can make fursuit heads myself, I do recognize that the ones that I make (especially since they're really only held up by glue and a prayer), are not built to last. Ultimately, my future goal is to commission a professional maker to bring my characters to life so that I can have them for longer periods of time.

So, ultimately, my question is this: For furs with professionally-made suits: How did you budget to get your suit(s) made by your dream maker(s) while still having enough money for boring, but necessary adult stuff (paying off student loans, groceries, bills, etc.)? Also, what makers can you potentially recommend me that still make quality products, but are maybe not as expensive, so that I have them for future reference?

Thanks!

How much after-tax income do you bring in every month and what financial obligations (bills, debt, etc) do you currently have?

Right now, I'm working for my university, and I'm working a relatively small job so I'm not getting paid that much. In the future, all things considered, when I get out of college, I'll have to deal with student loans, as well as paying off rent (most likely, I will be living in apartment, and depending on where I'm offered work, the cost of living will differ. I don't plan on living in anything super glamorous, as it'll just be a starter.) Since I am looking into working in the animation industry, roughly, my starter salary will be around $20,000-$40,000 (or possibly lower, depending on the position) a year depending on the company I work for. Ultimately, to some degree, I may be looking a bit too far ahead, as I'm not out of school yet. But considering income tax, and additional financial obligations, such as my student debt will help me better set aside money I can use for personal 'splurge' purchases.

I honestly wished I had more solid, for-certain info to give you, but I hope to, some degree, this helps.
