Wanna take one very discounted, all foam, toony head for end of year completion.
Thinking 300$ for the head, (plus more for special cases like custom dye or extensive markings) which means savings of 200$~.
Would need to be a shorter muzzled character. Throw them at me! Please email references to me at email@example.com
I have a few requests right now, but I would like more so I can pick what would help develop my style and abilities with shorter muzzles. That means this is not first come, first served! I *may* offer this a few more times later on to develop a consistent style!
This group has been indispensable for looking up just about any info I've ever needed to know! Helped a lot with my first good head. I really delved through the pages looking for help on these two things though and didn't really find anything at all. (I may be missing something of course, so feel free to correct me! But I really took a lot of time searching!)
I have plans to make a fursuit partial for the character "Babs Seed" from My Little Pony/ Friendship is magic.
They have really really round heads, and I found instantly that I have no idea how to start one at all. Any advice would be amazing! Or wip shots or something to help. I'm at a total loss of how to even begin.
Also, hair! I see a lot of people mention all types of ways to use wigs and things, but what about for cartoony characters? I thought babs had flat colorful hair so maybe Fleece? Has anyone used it before, or is it a good idea at all?
Please help if you can! ;^;
I did check the Memories for fans and didn't find my answer (see? diligent!), so I'm posting a pic to see if/who can help.
Here is the fan I'd like to use, because of size, price, and noise generated:
as you can see, there are red, yellow, black wires, instead of just red and black.
My question is: how do I wire it to a toggle switch and battery connector? (Ala Matrices?)
Questions that occurred to me: what size fan(s)? does one need? (e.g. 80, 90, 120, 140mm.) How does voltage affect/require what batteries you use? (9v vs AA, for example.)
The fur is just pinned on for now, I'm going to find the right thread I need and start sewing the fur pieces together, make the true hood.
I want to accent her as a "She" Ewok so, by a patterning mistake, I cut the shape out the wrong way and put it on. You know, I liked the non-traditional look and it was kinda like a personal touch that set me apart from the other Ewoks and it seems feminine a bit. I should be able to bypass any pickiness by the judges by concealing the hood around the face more( Read more...Collapse )
There is some faux fur in this market and I'll be going back to check the prices against what I could buy in the US. I'm told that bargaining is expected there, so I might be able to get some really good deals. But I want to make sure that it's a decent quality before I buy it. So is there any way to tell the quality of faux fur by looking it over and/or feeling it?
And I do know the Korean word for faux fur (it's 인조모피 'injomopi'), so I'll be able to verify that what I buy isn't real fur. ^^

So in an unfortunate accident involving a Nazgul and a ritual my LARP character lost her left arm at my last major event, so I've made my next hobby project crafting her a new, monstrous arm with which to cast elemental magics, and settled on 'draconic' as a theme.
I'm currently sculpting out the foam padding on the hand around a glove, and the sleeve of an old top. Some of the claws have been installed and I am working on refining the whole thing. It looks somewhat...off to me though so some advice on what I might cut/add would be enormously appreciated. I was going for a sort of vaguely 'avian' effect with the shape.
Along with that I'm currently puzzling over materials for the outer part. I don't want a furry effect, but rather skin/extremely short fur and large scales. I was considering stretch velvet with some scales made from worbla but I've not worked with either so I may be barking up the wrong tree there.
What I am looking for effect-wise is something that will leave the foam muscles and knuckles and such with their intergrity still, rather than lost under something thick, and then a way to add chunky, non-uniform scales that lie flat against the arm. As it is a LARP item and the event is combat-orientated I can't have anything sharp or extremely solid sticking up. Foam, latex, and such is entirely fire to stick out away from the limb however.
Any ideas would be brilliant.
Anyway, here I am again. I won't be getting fur for a while, but I still wanted to make sure I had these heads closer to done since they've been sitting here since January doing pretty much nothing but taking up space on the table ehehe. I've done some more shaping and adjusting since last time I posted, and I wanted to get tips again just to make sure they're at least close to fur-worthy.
