WOW!! It all looks so amazing! O_O

I love the blue stripe on the tail! Very pretty <3
The hooves look amazing! I've never seen how they're made before; so creative.
The horn is adorable >//< And so simple to make?? I tried making a horn before and it was so needlessly complicated and an utter failure... Nice to see a much simpler solution.

The leg's got a great start to it! Can't wait to see what's next :D

Hey again, guys! Anthrocon is coming up and I'm racing to the finish.. Hoping to wear Grace there, as you know! c:

First thing's first, here's the finishes wings, all stuffed and adorable.

Then, taking the small section of the paint suit that did work (most of it didn't work because it was too stretchy..), I cut it up and used it as a pattern for the armsleeves.

Marking the fur..

The fur is cut!

We sewed the sleeves, and my mother/best-helper-ever made a pattern for the torso based off of an old tshirt. Here's the nearly finished top half of the suit!

I also got some great work done on the head.

Started taping ~

Finished taping, marked and patterned.

Then I cut all the pieces off, marking where they went on the head as I cut them.

And here's a bit of the fur, cut and shaved a little !

And the final thing we did today was pattern the legs. First we taped the foam padding to my leg, then did a mini-DTD (Duct Tape Dummy) of my leg, which we'll use as a pattern for both legs.

Here's the leg, removed from my body and marked out with seams and such.

And here's what it'll look like with the feet!

We also did a bit of work with the head fur. I got ALL the fur for the head traced out and cut, and we started sewing. We'll be dedicating tomorrow morning to furring the head, and tomorrow afternoon to more work on the head/work on the legs.
Let us not grow weary of doing good.

As usual, thanks all for the compliments. <3

teaunicorn - Thanks! :D I can't wait to finally have her done, lol.. I may just put her on and lie about for a while. Making a whole suit this quickly is just exhausting.

Casper_Ringtail - Awh, thank you. I'm glad people like her design. <3 Yes, the horn was fairly simple! If you want me to PM you a link to the tutorial(s) I grabbed inspiration from, let me know! It was surprisingly easy to make and yielded a great outcome, I think.

Hancets I assume it looks good, but for me the pictures aren't working. Darn you photobucket! Maybe try sta.sh if you have a DA account? I think it works better, but whichever you want!

Kitten226 - Yeah, I saw that.. Photobucket's of the opinion I need to upgrade and pay in order to share images, apparently. I don't have a DA, nor a sta.sh.. The only reason I'm using Photobucket is because Dropbox made its public folder invisible to the public (????) and I had to switch.

Basically, photo hosting sites can be dumb and I've been too busy with the suit to work out the nuances of it all. |D Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

EDIT: Thank you all for the lovely compliments and support, too ! <3

Hancets Try imgur. Also, ping list please?
28 Jun 2017, 11:39 pm
okamiterrior - Thanks for the suggestion. I'll definitely consider it, although I'm leery of making new accounts anywhere, honestly. :'D I wish Photobucket would just work!

Hancets You can sign in with facebook and as far as I know, you can set it where only people who have the link can see the images.

okamiterrior - Oh, that's handy! Unfortunately I don't have a Facebook but.. Maybe I can make it work. Thanks for the info!

Hey guys, quick little update before I go to bed.

Long story short, Grace WILL be done in time for Anthrocon!

But I won't have time to upload or post pictures before heading out. So, I'll be at the Furvilla meetup and she'll probably be there with me, if you want to see her in person - and of course after the con I'll post the final pictures of her! Thank you all for your support. :D

Hello again everyone~

Got back from Anthrocon last night. Grace was out 'n about as a partial on Friday, and a fullsuit both Saturday and Sunday, so hopefully some of you guys saw her! If not, she'll be in the AC parade videos, of course.

Still trying to figure out photobucket's sudden "meh you can't third party host" thing but I'm sure it'll work out. Thanks all for your patience and your support!

I'm glad to hear that you finished making Grace and I hope you had a blast at Anthrocon! :)

I hope you figure out how to show the images of the full suit as I couldn't go Anthrocon, due to it being in a completely different state then mine.
Anyways, I can't wait to see her all finished! <3
