Starting question, who is your favorite fursuiter?
Non-furry from the last thread. I'm interested in making a suit just to be cuddly and give hugs but I was wondering if there's a way to estimate how much the average suit needs in terms of yardage for foam padding, fur, etc.
>every tutorial says you need fur and foam
>no estimate for average consumption
>I only have "Foam Adventure" as a reference for how much foam and that seems excessive.
I made a full body suit + a tail and used about 4 yards of foam an about the same amount of fur. I guess it just really depends on what you're doing.
Fur is a super forgiving fabric so if you need more mid-project you're not going to be up a creek or anything.
K-Line posted the next wave of their Showcase designs on Twitter, will be avaiable soon for the usual $4000-7000 per made-to-order fursuit.
The latest Showcase fursuit they finished of Wave 1.
They go by CanineHybrid and contrary to that video, their craft is actually really good.
If memory serves me correctly, non-Japanese are the only ones who can order now after Rady decided to take a break from suit making. I remember her mentioning it was gonna become a Japanese only company.
>I remember her mentioning it was gonna become a Japanese only company.
Bullshit, even says on their website that the next wave of Showcase is open to everyone worldwide just like the last one . The only thing they don't do anymore is COMMISSIONS and that applies to Japan too because everyone and their mom wanted copied designs.
Guess why most of their recent works are owned by foreigners, >>9297693 included.
I didn't know that showcases were not included in this.
I remembered the commission thing because I was around for when she posted her last journal on FA and that's what I meant by the Japanese only statement. If she opened commissions back up.
Jesus, sorry for the misinformation, anon.
I was making a fuzzy moth because I find them to be rather cute. I didn't want anything too cumbersome to travel with so I wanted to make something that was sleek yet inviting for affection. Kids like when things squish. Like >>9297691 . By eyeballing it it doesn't seem to need more than 5 yards of fur. I'll go easy on the foam and go back if I have to pad more.
I appreciate the assistance!
>referring to "Foam Adventure" for anything but as a guide on how not to be the poster child for furry autists
Search fursuit makers and tutorials and most of the time they have at least estimated prices listed. Also practice with cheaper materials if you're new to crafting.
Me in my fursuit on Halloween. Some of the kids were scared but the rest of them loved it.
doing some late night sewing for my fursuit. havent lined the ears or wefted the wig yet. any seagulls going to further confusion?
3D eyes (aka follow me eyes) are built in a way where it forms an illusion of them looking at you, hence the name. They aren't actually moving unless they're one of those suits with screen eyes
I'll keep you updated. It's a wolf -- unoriginal, I'm aware. But anyways, I'm making kemono style eyes for it. It's my first suit ever, so I'm definetly taking my time.
Just glancing at it i thought it was a panda..
Just wondering but why does everyone seem to gravitate towards wolves or dogs when it comes to fursuits? It's something I've never figured out.
I've yet to make one myself, but I suppose the familiarity and coolness of doggos and wolves might be a contributing factor. They also seem easier to build shape-wise. Large ears, big muzzle, etc. Due to the large amount of wolf suits there's probably also a ton more tutorials and guides geared towards them as well.
While I find the cartoony wolf suits kind of cute, I'd really like to try making a realistic one someday.
Just wanted to mention we do have a primarily fursuit craft and cosplay focused group that was created last thread. It's mostly a half and half of furries/non-furries and any in between. So even if you just wanna make a suit but despise the fandom, you're welcome!
I'm not too sure myself. My main sona is actually not a wolf but I wanted to start off with something to match my bf, who is a gshep.
It's alright, I don't mind I know it's only the eye as of right now, I don't want to show off the full head since it's still a WIP.
Retarded newfag, how do you clean the fursuits and storage them so dirt won't stain the fur?
Storage is primarily within storage bins to keep the fursuit away from light (natural or artificial) as light discolors the fur overtime. This will also keep the suit dry in case too. Make sure that the feet bottoms aren't touching the head and that nothing is on top of the bin afterwards so the suit is not squished.
Hope that helps!
What material are fursuits usually made of?
Is it non-elastic?
Because I notice that fursuits are very rarely skin-tight, which would be easy to do if it was elastic; I've found that an ability to stretch by 40% is about what's necessary to get a skin-tight suit on.
And there is only one company that makes spandex-like fur and that fur is only avaiable as shortpile (pic related), meaning every little seam is clearly visible besides the material being $$$.
Dropped my pic, manufacturer is http://e-nakano.net/
But considering the heavy amount of leg padding that a fursuit needs, skin-tight doesn't make any sense anyways.
Captured because cute and the hats are still randomly showing up for me.
Yo... Daiko? I was commissioned to draw this character at Supanova??
This is weird
Daiko was really fun to draw.
I've turned to more of a realistic art style now but I still like how these turned out.
This is my suit Kiko, maker is NonStopFlop (Otherwise known as Hinauchi, I fortunately wasn't one of the scammed ones). Also she's got better handpaws now, need to work on her fullbody
Yeah she was originally that Baja auction, I changed the name since I was struggling to pronounce Baja and wasn't fond of the name.
She's not the best of made suits but she atleast arrived. Samm didn't seal her eyes, so if I wear her too long and the eyes get moisture on them they start melting a little bit, so I'm trying to figure out what to do about that without replacing her eyes completely. Her lining is riddles with holes and I can poke my hand through one and feel the foam coming apart a bit. Luckily its' a big hole so I can wedge a hot glue gun in there to stabilise it. I've not fixed any of the holes out of sheer laziness. Her ears also have tape all over them for some reason, so if you bend them you can hear it crinkle. Samm works in mysterious ways. I was expecting these flaws anyway when we bought her.
My mother got me her for my birthday/christmas a few years ago or so too, so she's been very well loved. I wear her super frequently to meets and cons! I'm over in England.
It's so funny seeing stuff about Hinauchi.
I knew her back in... 2010/2011? There was this site called Whirled that was a virtual avatar chat site. She was on it and we became friends through Warriors RPs. She made me a custom avatar which was a pretty big deal back then. I remember talking to her all the time.
It's so wild seeing that she's now a huge scammer.
Honestly they're so minor I barely notice it. Hell I only noticed the tape when a kid yanked a year off. I wish she put more attention into her suits, she's got a suit style and if she had better work ethic she could become a really popular maker.
People can go down dark paths, it's a shame seeing promising people make foolish mistakes.
She's been scamming since around 2012, anon. It's unfortunate but time will tell if she'll actually change, considering how often she hops accounts.
I feel ya anon
It's not so much buying as commissioning. If you don't have a fursona/character, a lot of makers do pre-made sells or they have artistic liberty commissions as an option.
If you want to actually just purchase one, these following sites-
are especially made for furry based auctions and have sections for fursuits. You can also try using the search tags "fursuit sale" or "fursuit auction" and sort by date on FA. eBay should be a last ditch effort.
Seagulls, I need some help understanding something. I have a general dislike for fursuits and furry mascot characters. Fur suits that looks like these freak me out, and I think they're ugly and scary.
But these suits are super cute to me.
I can't figure out what it is that makes me adore or creeped out by these different suits. What is it about them that is so different?
Actually, looking at the two styles, I can see what you mean. The ones I like have smaller ears and faces. Is kemono what fursuit is called in Japan? I'm a noob to all this.
I would love to learn more about kemono, and maybe even make one eventually, but the western style fursuits are still sort of intimidating...
I'm actually amazed that the english wikipedia doesn't have an entry for kemono while other languages do.
Depending on the spelling, kemono either is just the japanese word for "beast" (hence the japanese name of "Beauty and the Beast" containing "kemono") or a various range of anthro art with japanese influence, pic related would be "kemono-taiheiki" which is hystorical seen japanese traditional furry art.
There isn't much of a difference besides that the eyes are printed
There are few thousand kemono artists, listing them all would take ages and you can find them searching for "kemono" or "ケモノ着ぐるみ" anyways.
Fuck, and I told my self I would never get a fursuit...
Does this person do commissions? Would it be possible to get something similar (with another design ofc)? And how much money would I have to cash out?
Sorry for stupid questions, I haven't looked in to this stuff that much.
That's K-Line's Rady. I don't think K-Line do commissions outside of Japan right now, only selling premade/predesigned stuff to foreigners.
Anything from K-Line will set you back between $3000-6000.
They currently have applications open for four designs here http://www.k-line.cc/cn2/showcase_en.html
Thanks for the info (and for replying so fast lol)!
Damn, that's a lot of money.. Maybe in the future when I'm rich, hehe..
What is generally the lowest amount of money you can spend on a fursuit without it being shitty? And are there commissioners out there (preferably outside of japan) that does similarly styled fursuits? Like, big eyes, big head and slim torso etc.
I'm not really familiar with western artists who do kemono style suits but it'd be worth looking around furaffinity for kemono/fursuit in the search page or in the favorites of https://www.furaffinity.net/user/kemonofurs/
You'd just have to look around, K-Line is definitely considered top of the range in terms of quality so their price is up there to match. A decent looking commissioned fullsuit will set you back $1500-2000 or more depending on what you want. Partials somewhat less again depending on how complex you want the parts to be.
Thanks a bunch anon! I'll look around some more on my own, but I'm really greatful for the info you gave me, gonna make it easier to find stuff and know what to expect etc
Thanks again <3
Samm left a lot of holes in it, and I was asked by a marathon I volunteer for to hand out sweets in the suit. I was kneeling down to hand out sweets and a kid came and yanked it, the holes resulted in it getting torn off, so I had to take it home and fix up.
You don't have seen a lot then, plus japanese fursuits don't come with any cooling or ventilation and are only for photography porposes (K-Line even states that in their FAQ), not actually attending a con.
That's interesting.. but the head shape is so awkward.
I think the biggest thing is that Western makers put the eyes too high up on the face (or rather, Japanese makers put them too low), so if you want that cute high-forehead big-cheek look, it looks awkward with the high eye placement.
It takes a lot of skill to be at that level, though, although if you're good enough at sewing and carving foam, you can easily rake in $1000 per suit anyway.
K-Line's suits are special because of the level of body shaping as well as the distinct face style.
That's an artstyle thing, all of the K-Line suits made by Eixin have high placed close.set eyes. Plus the average asian suit isn't much different to the average western one, it's only that only the very good ones get spread (just like how it is with cosplay).
Pic very related.
>I'd happily make fursuits for that kind of income
I don't think you understand how difficult it is.
Also, amateur suits only go for around $1000, professional around $2,000 or so, and its only the best of the best, or the very complex or niche suits that are over $4,000.
>and its only the best of the best, or the very complex or niche suits that are over $4,000.
Pretty much all fursuit makers in Japan start at $4300 tho, doesn't even need to be a pro.
Pic very related, that was the "cheapest" offer I got for a plain white head and that was from Amanojaku.
I've seen it discussed before that Japanese suit makers tend to charge a lot because of the cost of materials there and that furries in Japan aren't very aware of the western market for it. If I can find the source again I'll leave it here. In America you can a lot of suits closer to $1000.
This looks like the best thread to ask this in, and apologies if it's offtopic. I had a couple of questions for those of you who've sold things in furcon AA/Dealer's Dens:
- Are prints/pins/badges/other standard AA fare as sellable?
- If not, what are some of the more typical types of merch?
- Is it reasonable to take mostly commissions for things like plush, brooches, pins, etc. to deliver after con?
- Does non-anthro animal art sell at all? Fanart?
I'm shifting from standard anime AAs to furcons because they seem friendlier and I miss being in smaller rooms, so I'm curious about what I'm potentially getting myself into. I'm aware that 2d commissions move provided the art is appealing enough, especially things in color (which I don't do currently) so that's definitely something I'll be working on.
And of course I'll be doing my own research by actually going to a furcon soon and scoping out what people have set up there, but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask here too.
>- Are prints/pins/badges/other standard AA fare as sellable?
Absolutely. Just keep it animal related.
>- If not, what are some of the more typical types of merch?
Plushies. Always plushies. And on-spot commissions.
>- Is it reasonable to take mostly commissions for things like plush, brooches, pins, etc. to deliver after con?
Yes. Sometimes artists who have a big enough following will offer special commissions to be picked up at the con too.
>- Does non-anthro animal art sell at all? Fanart?
Sure, 'feral' is a popular style all its own. Fanart too if it's stuff like Zootopia, My Little Pony, or whatever is popular at the time. The biggest thing to remember though is that most furries are looking for unique items related to their favorite species or to their own character so custom stuff sells well.
I've found Fur cons to be nicer than anime cons. Not necessarily more profitable but just nicer to be in. Good luck anon!
I do laser cutting and notice a lot of the furries posted here like to wear a tag with their character portrait. I'm interested in trying one out. Is there anyone here who already has a character portrait they would want as a tag? I can only really do two colors though, the base color of the plastic and an enamel fill of the portrait/name etching. I can do it in wood too for a more rustic look but no paint fill
If you can only do two colors I suggest going with stylized names or paws instead of trying to do portraits. Like cute custom pet tags. Bones maybe? Some furries like that kind of accessory if they wear collars or you could offer it as a necklace or bracelet.
The tags are often called badges, and are used to identify the users. I agree with above n say do stylized names. Or etch the wood with the lineart and then stain the wood the right colour. I'd commission a base, and learn how to stain the wood the colours furries want.
I've never made a suit before, but I'm making one now. It's a hare and I was going for something similar to pic related. I've learned making a head is very difficult. Mostly making the rabbit head shape.
I had the head shape down with a mishmash of foam but it wasn't sturdy enough so I tore it up and I'm back at square one. Any suggestions? I attempted the head shape with plaster cloth but it looks like a hellbeast.
Sorry if dumb question: I've never sewn anything in my life but I've decided I want to learn specifically to make fursuits. Where should I even start? Should I practice by making smaller stuff first or would I be better off diving right into making a suit?
Do smaller stuff. Buy cheap materials and just practice until you feel comfortable. I personally recommend sort of building up; tails first, hands, feet then finally the head.
If you dive in, you're making a solid commitment of $400+ if you want your suit to look good in the first place. A quality suit needs quality material.
If you don't feel comfortable with foam/resin work, there's always makers who take base commissions. You normally have to ask them but some sell premade casts on Etsy.
I've been low key wanting a fursuit for quite some time now but I feel like my friends would disown me if they ever found out if I were planning to get one.
Since it was made on commission I wouldn't doubt it if it belonged to someone in the west. Kemono suiters don't really do fake species unless it's something they made themselves, or sergals since the creator is from there.
Kinda like the west as well, your most common species for fursuits in Japan are canines (foxes, dogs and wolves), cats, rabbits, dragons aaaand... really anything else. Hybrids are weird in Japanese fursuiting because they never look like one unless it's a dragon/whatever
It's a costume, that's all it is. If they care about you they won't give a fuck. A majority of my friends hate furries but for my birthday you know what they did? Got over it and actually surprised me with a partial for my birthday at a con.
Just don't make a big deal (like, bitchy whiny negative. Be excited for sure) and it'll be fine. Number one thing about fursuiting they don't tell you:
Just don't be a giant faggot about it.
The owner is japanese ( facebook taku.hikosaka.9), not is it the first angel dragon in Japan, they are really popular since last year.
>Kemono suiters don't really do fake species unless it's something they made themselves, or sergals since the creator is from there.
You don't know a lot about the japanese community then because you couldn't be any more wrong.
I was going by the photos I've seen from kemono conventions and other Japanese furry events. I'm sure not every Japanese furry goes to cons obviously, that's how it is anywhere.
As a Westerner whose never been to Japan or been involved in the Japanese furry community, that's about as far as my exposer goes besides Japanese FA users or users who live in Japan.
Like I apologize if I offended you with my misinformation anon but that wasn't my attention. I was passing on info I personally gained through my own results and limited interactions
The "everything got big cat ears" thing seems to be really popular. I've seen bees with giant cat ears (pic related), dolphins with giant cat ears, birds with giant cat ears, etc.
And she often comes with a cat eared "hornet".
I could not see the giant "tail" from the first picture lol. It is very cute
I thought Oinu were 100% closed off from use (unless people just steal the design which happens...)
But yeah, I guess that's what I meant. It's not that they don't occur, just not the insane amount I'd imagine the West gets. However, the Western furry community (especially the US) is way bigger so that isn't saying a lot in comparison.
Would it be worth doing pic related or is it too obscure? I've always wanted to make a fursuit but I have no interest in making furry OCs. Or maybe do a yeti, something that doesn't have the stigma attached.
I feel like you're gonna get the stigma attached regardless unless you're in a very recognisable cartoon or video game character costume. The key is to not care, and enjoy yourself.
It's pretty much something close to a giant beach ball on the inside, quite a few japanese suits have inflatable parts (usually replacement for a big stomache padding, pic related).
It's almost 50/50, but most of the futsuits tend to be male.
is it necessary to make a fullbody suit? I mean, my character typically wears normal clothes so I was just going to forgo the body suit and wear my character's Hawaiian shirt and jeans. I'd still do a neck and shoulders thing and handpaws.
Because most people, including me, is a faggot.

At one con I went to they had to cart a full-suited furry away in an ambulance after he fainted, and they had to cut his suit off.
What you're referring to is a partial suit and are very common either for health reasons as stated by >>9309711 or because it is waaaay less hassle to just wear a head, gloves/sleeves and maybe some feet.
Personally I only wear a partial unless I've got a buddy with me all day. I don't think I could fullsuit solo.
Jesus, I've heard horror stories about having a suit cut from you but I can't imagine witnessing it.
Don't let it scare you away though from future fullsuiting endeavours. It can be a lot of fun and being extra huggable is a plus with entertaining the public.
Oh god never fullsuit solo. Unless you know your limits and have the proper wear (ice packs or cooling vests, fans in the head or accessible areas etc.), fullsuiting alone is an awful idea. Set aside the health things, just moving around and getting places on your own isn't easy in any form of fursuit, let alone a fullsuit. I can't imagine how digitigrade, stompy footed fursuiters get around on their own.
Not directed at you anon, just in general!
Gonna be honest, patterns aren't much of a thing in the fursuit community. I mean yeah people need to make them to make their fursuits, but you won't find a lot of people sharing their patterns for originality reasons. You're more likely to just find WIPs and tutorials than any free to use patterns. If you do find any patterns, it'd probably just be hands and feet, maybe tail.
Sorry anon, I did find a few on FA but few is the key word and they were mostly by this one fursuit maker who, personally I wouldn't follow his guides.
Continuing, I also personally recommend just sort of finding your own footing. A big thing about making fursuits is discovering your own style and creating something you can call yours. I just googled and I got a few fursuit pattern results, so I'd just do that if you really need some patterns.
>but most of the futsuits tend to be male.
the poll is old, online polls aren't very great, especially not knowing the demographics of the site, most people's fursuits are male, that doesn't mean most fursuiters are male. Almost everyone I know, even straight women, have male fursonas.
Not the same anon but when you have an "obvious" female fursuit people will assume you are male. I have a female fursuit some wierd guys at a con started to fondle me joking that under this is obviously someone male, wasn't even a suit with breasts.
idk. to be clear, most women I know have male sonas, but also female sonas too. The furry community is largely non-straight so that why most people have male and female sonas I guess.
I've seen even skinny suiters have to take regular breathers. Layers of foam and fur completely covering your body, especially if you don't invest in fans or other cooling methods, can make just about anyone overheat if they're not careful.
Needing some technical advice. I'm converting a latex head a bit like this, and I want to make the lower jaw moveable. I've figured out how to properly separate/shape it, I just can't fathom how to have it attached to my chin so it moves as I speak. Any suggestions?
Build up foam inside of it, so it's up against your chin, and then use hinges.
Id love something like this for Komasan from Yokai Watch but i heard alot of makers wont touch copyrighted characters
The fact that its still active also irks me because its old stats mixed with new stats rather than a fair comparison from year to year and see how the demographic has changed.
>I'm a do It for proper statistics, anon, I'm sorry
In doing the logistics planning for a costume, I've run into a bit of a snag. Pic related, I was planning on having the open area be made of buckram, but due to the extreme angle the material would sit at relative to the eyeline, I'm not sure if that would work. 'cause usually buckram's sitting parallel to the wearers eyes for maximum transparency. Also, the nose area's as wide as a human head.
Western suits usually have bigger heads than kemono ones but any increase in size over the human head besides practicality reasons is either because it fits the style of the character (toony stuff is almost always big big big with exaggerated features) or just to make it look less like a person.
If you want eyes that "move" you either use 3D follow-me eyes to give an illusion, or LED screen eyes that can be programmed to perform different patterns. Moving jaws are also a thing but outside of being able to make a naturally expressive head, you're losing a lot of expression versus your own face. Which is why being able to act expressively to compensate your lack of facial expression is kinda important for suiters
You could use tearduct vision or buckram that's painted/the color of the fur/feathers of the suit.
Or maybe you could just sung it up?
Here are some birds as inspo.
Oh geeze I neglected to clarify, the area in front of the head's a nose, not a beak. And the nose area is way too wide to do tearduct-like vision.
I've never seen a suit with LED screen eyes.
Also, you could have a lot of facial animation, but you'd need a tacklebox for a face since you'd need a physical connection between your face and suit, and nothing short of piercings would allow you to pull on your fursuit with your facial muscles.
>I've never seen a suit with LED screen eyes.
One of many examples using https://learn.adafruit.com/animated-electronic-eyes-using-teensy-3-1/overview
How would you control it though?
Only way I could imagine it could be controlled in a natural-feeling way is if you had a faint light source in front of your eyes and something to detect the light bouncing off.
And that would block your vision, so the light source would need to be virtual reality goggles, but you'd still need something to detect the light bouncing off your eyes.
Follow-me eyes sound better.
Surprised no one's mentioned the needle-felted fursuits.
im gonna be real with you here anon the lucario movie was bunk except for these guys https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2t0hSt9kVU
I liked the zoroark movie though because half of it was around zorua being a little asshole with its illusion powers and the other half was angry zoroark mother tearing the bad guy's stuff up
Very cute but yeah when something is too close, it really hits the valley for me... Especially if I saw it up close and it was "blurry" patterned due to the natural of needle felting.
Why does it have to be SO BIG? The suit that goes along with that would have to be gigantic(unless a mountain was in it)
Lucario is pretty small(~4 ft), imo if you shrink the head there'd be no problem.
The closer it gets, the worse it gets.
Relatively speaking, Lucario heads are rather large in comparison to their bodies.
I'm ~175cm, and the head size I'm going with is 40cm wide (& nearly 50cm back to nose, with a 60.5cm height including ears). With trying my best to have the costume as close to on model as possible, that's about how big the head would be.
It is, and the pokkén model is proportioned slightly differently, but not enough for it to make much of a difference to my project.
(Not that I can find the actual geometry, no one's released it yet and I can't be less bothered to find/learn 3DS Max 2010 to run the scripts and do it myself.)
I don't (no healthy person does), but the last time I made it I was shooting for each individual body part being proportional to that body part as opposed to everything scaled as a whole, and... everything below the neck was passable (considering I was ~20lbs heavier at the time, and it was never truly finished) but that head was laughably tiny compared to the rest of the body.
As for this time round, with a 30in waist + a waist trainer I'm feeling fairly confident that it'll look fine.
With the head that large, it's going to be very heavy... If you're set on it being "true" to the character, I guess consider more of a mascot style construction and use a screen/buckram for viewing between the eyes where the fur is short.
It's not going to be solid foam, the outer skin'll be a 2mm foam sheet shell with short pile fur & fleece (for the black areas) and strips of foam along the inside middle and around the head laterally to keep it in place on the head.
And my initial question was about looking through the area between the eyes, but because that area's all nose I wanted to know if it would be possible to see through buckram at that angle.
This one won JMoF's fursuit design contest btw, it's by one of K-Line's trainees and the mascot of a sushi restaurant.
It may not be common knowledge but there are a ton of tutorials and even an entire lj dedicated to fursuit making. If you've ever looked beyond this thread, you would have at least seen it around once, even just on dA.
I've looked up plenty of tutorials on making suits and heads in preparation to make my own soon, so I'm not new to it at least.
I've just not seen as many heads using an entire clay base (and wondering if it's more fragile than just resin). Let alone with a more human-like face than anthro. I'm not a fan of the look (at least in this case) so I'll probably stick to foam, myself.
Well, all of his works look like that.
It's pretty accurate the character, Claire. You should look up Seely's (Claire's creator, but not the fursuit maker) work, her stuff is awesome. Especially her little everyday life comics.
The maker is uhhh... Mochiri I think? She's from Japan.
I only know of her FA and Twitter. She takes limited commissions or sells designs that she makes into fursuits when purchased. Her art is super cute too
I knew it!!
We have the same suit mom!
She made my polar bear
I'm not interested in fursuits as much as I am just wearing ears/tails but I was wondering if anyone knew where I could commission/or go about making my own cat feet? Specifically the hind legs? I'm only interested in them coming up a litte past the start of my calves, though.
I honestly have no idea if that's do-able?
Not a furry, but a cosplay I'm working on requires fur large paws (hands and feet) (Yurikuma) and figured this would be the best place to turn to.
Recommended tutorials? Mainly for making the feet.
I'm not sure if you could make digitigrade legs that stop below the knee because it's typically the thigh padding that gives the illusion of the legs being further forward than they are which allows the lower sections to appear digitigrade
(don't be deterred by tumblr)
I had to google Yurikuma but I think this tutorial works for those big stompy bear boots. She also has a handpaw tutorial that might be of help.
Goddamn it lemonbrat.
That sloth was a premade for $950 which means someone bought it.
I'm sorry, that's a decent price for a partial sure but the colors and just overall look are... ugly imo.
Hope the buyer is happy though yknow? They seem like it and that's what matters.
The thing that I find unattractive is that every one of them has the same random markings all over. It's like each of their forehead and knees were scribbled on. They're all "unique" yet exactly the same. The one on the far left is the cutest, and I would like the tiger a LOT if it didn't have pikachu knees.
The markings are a shinto thing and not just random.
I know, I was just pointing out that once you see their legs all next to each other it doesn't look as good as it does individually.
The Amanojaku faces are still really adorable though.
Depending on the maker your most likely average range is $700-$2000. Can be less or more, just varies.
Price fluctuates depending on how long they've been making suits, how popular they are, materials used and what you want, such as armsleeves, feet realistic vs toony and etc.
Well, everyone can signup to Furstar to sell their designs to get made by Amanojaku but that only applies to the JP site, the designer in question actually got an own fursuit studio and there nothing looks like that style-wise (minus the patterns).

It's for the best, but goddamn, I miss feeling in the scene. Guess I'll live through this thread.
Jillcostumes is still my favorite maker. I love the way they do cats.
We might need a new thread.
