From the Side?
Help me try to decide … what should his pattern look like from the side?
I’m about ready to fur this fursuit head I’m making for Halloween (yes, cutting it close) and I’m having trouble visualizing how the pattern looks on his head in 3-D from the side. Does the white wrap under the black? How far down does the black go? Do I want that gray patch on his muzzle and if so, what shape/how does it mesh with the other colors?
What do you think?
How I Made My Sockpaws
I’m a total amateur at making fursuit parts, but I learned a lot from what other amateurs posted on the Internet, so here’s how I made my first sockpaws: http://wolf.ishly.me/sockpaws-version-1-0/
Hope it helps you along with yours!
Martin the Mouse
My daughter wanted to go as Martin the Mouse from Redwall for Halloween. So I whipped up the head for her while she put together the rest of the costume. Anyway, this is my second fur head …. the first was the fox. Like the fox, this one is ventilated with a CPU cooling fan and has a hinged jaw that moves when the wearer talks. But unlike the fox in which the wearer looks through the tear ducts, the eyes on the mouse are “functional” clear acrylic hemispheres blackened with window tinting film that the wearer looks through.
I was on a tight schedule and didn’t have time to craft a Sculpy nose or something, so just shaped this from foam. I wasn’t happy with the pink, but that’s what the girl wanted ….
