Making fursuits can be confusing and difficult at first. Here are some tips from me!
What is a fursuit?
To quote Wikipedia - "a fursuit is an animal costume weared by those that are a fan of anhtrophomorphic animals. They are often made to represent the wearer's fursona, a personal character who portrays them as an anthropomorphic animal and with whom one feels a sense of belonging."
Fursuites are seen a lot in furrycons, i.e. events where fans of anhrophomorphic animals gather.
You can make any member of your blog a writer so they can write posts for your blog. Adding multiple writers is a great way to grow your content and keep it fresh and diversified.
To make a fursuit, you need:
Faux fur is fleece
Mesh for the eyes
tape to make the formula
plastic or foamies for eye making
The photos I took from my own video on YouTube. You should take a peek if the pictures alone are not enough. There are also a lot of instructions online on "How to make a fursuit head".
How to make fursuit eyes?
You can also find instructions for this on my YouTube
To make it, you need a plastic sheet, glue, and mesh fabric.
When you have finished the base, tape it over
according to the shapes with some tape (preferably gentle so that the foam does not tear). Draw the desired patterns on the tape. Cut and place the patterns on the back of your fur fabric. Be sure to cut the parts so that they are flat on the cloth, otherwise the parts are too small and the wrong size.
Sew the parts together and glue them to the Base!
And done! If you want, you can add teeth, a tongue and an inner lining to the suit so that the foam does not rub against your face. Good luck with the construction!
(Or if you don't want to do it yourself, you can commission a fursuit from a maker like me)
