Realistic Raptor Suit WIP!

5 Sep 2018, 4:21 pm (Edited 3 Jan 2019, 12:33 pm)
So, ever since I was in middle school, I've wanted to make a realistic raptor dinosaur costume. It started out as just wanting to live the childhood dream of being a dinosaur, but since then I've realized there's a lot of educational potential as well, and this ambitious project has evolved from something just kind of fun to something that will really make an impact (and be super fun, duh!) ^^

The specific species is Deinonychus; here's the plan for what the finished costume will look like--though, hopefully a little less anthro than I've drawn it, since the idea is to not look like a person in a suit XD

I only have a few parts done so far, and a long way to go, so here's hoping I can get it done soon--the 50th anniversary of Deinonychus' scientific publication is coming up, and I can't think of a better time to debut it!

Pics of the costume so far:
Head (it has a bit more done on it than this photo shows but): RaptorWTeeth_zpsiyjpbkir.jpg
Body and tail: raptorbody1_zpsqd1rfvcf.jpg
Feet:

Let me know if you'd like to be added to the pinglist or commission me! ;D I'm looking forward to sharing this project with everyone ^^

Ahah, seems I do need one! Alright, I'll get it started ^^

Work on this has always been slow for one reason or another, so I can't promise frequent updates, but maybe having an eager audience will help motivate me to work a little faster, heheh -u-

That's awesome *^*
Out of curiosity and *COUGH*wanting-to-hopefully-save-up-for-one*COUGH* are you planning on selling Deinonychus head blanks in the future? If so what price would they be?

I’m not quite sure what a ping list is, I’m guessing it means we get updated on this subject. If that is so then please add me to the ping list.

sciencesparrow Since I already have a pattern for them and they're made from EVA foam, Deinonychus blanks go for $55 USD! I also have a Utahraptor pattern, and that one goes for $65 (it's a little bigger, heheh), and hope to do additional species in the future ^^

The technique is still a little experimental--EVA foam is used in cosplay props all the time, but I don't see it in fursuiting much so I'm nervous there's some unspoken rule against it o-o;; But for this it seems to work well enough, and is way more accessible than resin casting, so until I discover any major problems it's what I'll use! ^^

Edit: all new pinglist requests have been added! ^^
