Still Missing the Head

I've never been this much into getting a suit done! It's so much fun! I wish I had realized cosplay as an option for cosplaying before... :D I've been pretty busy with work this week (today is my only day off), meaning I haven't had that much time for my fursuit. Nonetheless I've made some progress!

As you can see, I've finished with sewing the paw together. I used leather for the pawpads and they give a nice detail to this piece of fur! All I need to do for it now is claws and trimming. I'm going to make the claws from Fimo and clue them on. Oh, and I'm still missing the 2nd paw... :P This paw hasn't been all I've been doing while at home: I made a tail partial!

It's so big and fluffy and it's going to be really bouncy! Now I need to attach it to a belt.
I'm really sad I couldn't find the same fur quality for all the colours I'm using. The white fur is so soft and pretty much the length I'm wanting for these partials. The red one is long (way too long) and kind of wiry. At least I can trim it! I also ordered long black fur from eBay, but it never got to me... So I had no other choice but to visit the local fabric store and they only had this extremely short black fur! It makes me sad it's so short..! TT___TT
I also wished to have some longer fur below the tail and on the tip... But this time I'll have to survive with the fabrics I have. I'll have tons of time to edit the fursuit once the Nordic Fuzz Con is over. I just want to wear it there even though it's not going to be exactly the way I want it to be... :P

Hopefully you'll get to see the head next time! Actually you can see the current head (snout) on the shelf behind me... But I'm going to redo the base and fur it again, since I don't like how it looks atm.

My Fursona Gaikotsu that I'm turning into a fursuit..

Stay tuned for more fursuit updates! :)


  1. Hahaha, when I was my first Ilona big sister meeting last week I met one new friend of there. She knows how to walk with stilts ( and where you can buy those. I have plenty ideas how to use those in fursuits. You can do really scary costumes by those :D (and also giraffe: not so scary)

    1. I'm already planning to do my own stilts for forelegs (they are needed for quadsuits). I didn't know you can order them! But those stilts would be too stiff for my fursuits since I want them to bend naturally from "joints".

    2. Those stilts what you can order are circus stilts so you can dance, run etc. Some russian guy made those and he also organize training courses in Finland. I heard that he is maybe coming back this summer :3

    3. Oh really? Well, I've already planned my stilts and how I'm going to do them, so I guess I'll stick with my own. :D
