Anonymous said: yo, I really wanna change my fursuits ears (attach em differently) but the fur is already attached on the head, and I don't wanna rip the fur off. is there anyway to somehow move the ears, or am I stuck?
Nope you need to remove the fur or at least a part of it
Anonymous said: I'm currently making a suit thats all grey with accents of blue, but for the sake of sanity lets just say I need to buy all grey fur. How many yards would I need if I do a digitigrade suit, no tails, and im 4'11'' at approximately 100 pounds? I dont want too much left over, and I dont have money for an extra yard I wont need. Thank you for your help ^-^
I have no idea. I’m really bad at such things. And I would always suggest to buy more fur than needed for repairs or in case something went wrong
Anonymous said: Hey a quick question, where would be a good place to get shorter pile furs of the pink and reddish pink variety? I havent really shopped around for short pile furs but I question the integrity of some sites that I have seen. Thanks!
Fabrics.com, Imstuffedfur.com, Mendels.com
I love the short pile fur called seal fur
Anonymous said: I'm thinking of creating a fursuit head of the character Foxy from Five Nights at Freddy's. Do you have any tutorials that might help? Especially in the eye, muzzle, and furring areas?
DOn’t know this character, take a look in the head tag
Anonymous said: When making feet paws, do people use elastic for the top? Uh, like around the mid calf, I guess. Is that how people keep them from slipping down?
I don’t know. You can use elastics or support the fur with thin foam.
But to be honest I use nothing. I line my feetpaws and they stay up on their own
Anonymous said: Hi! I was wondering- do people usually make a pattern for the face, cut it out, then sew it together and glue it onto the base? That's what I was planning to do, but I'm not sure? Is it a recommended way to do it?
To make it short yes. Take a look in the head section to find helpful tutorials.
Anonymous said: do you have to change out a suit you bought every so often? if not how do you clean it?
I never bought a suit from someone else because I make my own suits.
I wash my suit after every convention. If you don’t know how to wash ask your suit maker if you need to wash it by hand or can put it in a machine (but never in a dryer). If you make the suit yourself take a look in the description of the fur you bought.
For the head I use desinfection spray. NOPE Febreeze is NOT a desinfection spray and to be honest I really really hate the smell of that shit.
Desinfection spray is really helpful at conventions too. I take it with me to conventions and spray my suit after wearing every day so it won’t smell after 5 days of wearing.
Anonymous said: I've been wanting to make a fur suit for a while, and I was wondering how hard is it? And is it expensive? :/ thanks! -g
Yes and Yes
Sorry I don’t know how to answer this. Fursuiting is an expensive hobby even if you build suits yourself. And yes it is hard
astralkitsune said: I've made about 3 fursuit heads so far but I've never been to a convention where I can really pay attention to sizing.... I just got a toony nose in the mail to use and based on it, I'm getting the feeling that I'm making my suit heads too small..... Do you have any diagrams for the suit head ratio to a human head? I want to also start using a resin head base soon, and now I'm not sure how big that would be.... Pictures if possible, thank you!!
No, because it depends on your own size, the species, the fur that bulk up a lot. If ypu want to submit some pictures so we get an idea this may be helpful
thekillerpinecone said: Do you have and tutorials on making a horse quadsuit. Or any help with quadsuits
I didn’t find any good quadsuit tutorials yet. But a lot of fursuit makers post helpful WIP pictures. Just search on Deviantart or youtube
