1st fursuit update
Working on the head at the moment. It's looking pretty good! I've had a chicken wire head sitting in my basement for...ever. I was going to use it for a huge sculpture, but it fits perfectly because I used my own head to form it in the first place. ^_^ With a little reshaping, what was once going to be a griffin, is now a dragon in progress.
The next step will be to flesh it out with foam. That's a waiting game. I can get all the foam I could ever want for free from work. Some of our upholstery trailers come packed with the stuff, and we just throw it out. Next time one of those trailers comes in, the foam's all mine! It's on the thin side, and comes in a rainbow of weird colors, but it's free. ;)
I know it's probably not the best choice of materials, but it's what I have at hand. My first fursuit head will be made of chicken wire, foam, and duct tape. Lots and lots of duct tape. XD
