Making my first fursuit?

19 Dec 2018, 11:10 pm (Edited 20 Dec 2018, 10:27 am)
So I haven't really been able to do any digital art recently since I moved and dont have a good computer set up ;-; rip. So I've been really bored when Im not at my job and I wanna give myself a project to do. Sooooo I went out and bought some foam to try and make a fursuit head :D I dont have all the supplies I need like the eye mesh or a balaclava (please if there's a way to make a head without one of those tell me cus I have no idea what store to buy one around here). I dont even have the fur because im not sure if I wanna make my sona or if I just want to make up a character with colours that are a lot easier to come by, it depends on how good the base comes out I guess??.

Ill have a pinglist for photos and updates if anyone wants. No promises on if it will be any good or not lol, I've never worked with foam and I'm horrible at sewing (which will all be done by hand, rippp)
Also no promises itll get done any time soon or at all. I can tend to drop a project for like forever before picking it up again, or just get frustrated and give up completely ^.^"

I'd love to be on the pinglist for updates! Ive been wanting to make myself a fursuit, but I feel like it would turn out horrible because I am not very good at that sort of thing.

meeyontokki ;-; same. the closest thing to this ive ever done is make things out of clay. ahhhh. but if you have the money you should try it. i got my roll of poly foam from hobby lobby for 20$ and i bet you can find it way cheaper online or at some walmarts

There is a way to make a fursuit head out of all foam but I recommend you try and find a tutorial for it.
Edit: pinglist please!

Stayed up pretty late last night doing the bucket base for my fursuit head. It comes down a tiny bit past my chin, i'm not sure if thats too short or what but I guess I can add more foam if need be.
I just have to cut the eye and mouth holes and then work on sketching out the plans so I know what I want it to look like before I start sculpting it.

Ive found out why fursuit heads can be so freakin expensive. It takes forever for the hot glue to dry. I could have shaved off almost 2 hours of work last night if I wasnt just sat there holding foam together while it dried. Next fursuit head (if I make more) I'm for sure getting some sort of clips or pins to hold things in place.
I also burnt my finger really good only like 5 minutes into crafting so that as fun ;-;

Between the sketchy bus trips to hobby lobby and this hot glue gun imma need to make a shirt that says "I survived making my fursuit head."

asentientbox Just about everything can be bought online. but irl hobby lobby and walmart should have you covered (minus fur) most fabric sections have very limited selections of fur. hobby lobby has someeee but not much.

Lykos I was thinking the same thing X'D I love marshmello!! And yeah but I didnt see any except the low temp glue sticks but my glue gun only has high temp. Just gotta stick with regular ol glue sticks for now I guess

Snekk would like to watch the progress as well!!
He suggests you do a lot of casual research and watch others do some work on their own, if you are not already ^^"

It is very helpful to see it done in so many different ways. YouTube has quite the multitude of suitmakers' timelapses and tips.

ExternalEnthusiast prettyboysylveon Added you guys :3
Snekk Added you too and yeah for sure. I already watch a lot of fursuit making videos just casually but im for sure going to do a lot of sketching for design, watching fursuit videos and just studying different fursuit head styles in general ^w^
