Due to excessive "Go to the fursuit" threads and comments,we decided to close cosplayfursuits. This community was meant for COSPLAYERS. Not furries (No offense meant! =) ).

So, my friend toke the liberty to create a cosplay fursuit/ mascot community for just cosplayers. You can view and join it at cosplay_mascots.

Thank you all for posting and keeping the community alive up until now. It was a real treat! If you are a cosplayer and like to fursuit/ mascot, then please join the above community.

Parade soles? [Aug. 9th, 2008|10:31 pm]

laughinghyena
Okay, I'm having a problem. Many and pretty much only fursuit commission websites talk about Parade soles.
What are they? And how can you make them yourself?
I've haven't really seen any tutorials for them or any shoe/sole site that mentions them.
I've worked with latex, so is rubber any different or the same? I just make a cast from clay with plaster and then pour the material in?

I'm asking this because the cosplay fursuit I'm building is for Halloween (Bowser). And as such, the feet have to be for outdoor use. And I also don't want the feet to break down in case I feel I can use it later for a convention. Thanks for any help posted.

Would you like an entire fursuit for only $400 + the cost of materials? Are you a fan of Firefly? Then this offer may suit you! (Pun intended because I'm horrible.)

Also, if you're a fan of Firefly irregardless, you should join furrybrowncoats, because that'd be all kinds of shiny.

X-posted a few places; sorry if you see this message multiple times.

Well just thought I'd poke my nose into the community. I'm not new to cosplaying, I got my start a number of years ago at Anime North of 2003 dressed as Miroku, from Inuyasha. I went as him for a number of years, and made a Kohaku costume for my younger brother when he came of age decided he first wanted to go to an Anime Convention. I am, however, quite new to fursuiting. I made myself my first partial fursuit, a Mightyena, (you can see it here) in time for Anime North 2008, but it was rushed and was clumsy, imperfect, and damn near impossible to see out of. Of course, having had a taste of it, I know I'll never be able to stop making fursuits. I aim to better myself. It wasn't bad for a first try, but it didn't live up to my expectations.

But now I'm setting that aside as a learning experience and I'm moving on. I've started work on a Leomon fursuit, which has the potential to be either mind-blowingly amazing or horribly awful. I plan to use a bodysuit as the base (I've been having trouble finding one; I've been thinking of looking for some sort of gymnastics retailer, but if anybody has suggestions I'd love to hear them) and building up foam muscles, and then gluing fur on, sewing the seams together. I've never made a full suit before, so this will be... a learning experience for me. My biggest fear is that I totally screw it up.

What you all could help me with fantastically would be suggestions of things to do / not to do working with this sort of costume. And if anybody knows of any prexisting Leomon fursuits, I'd love to see them- I haven't found a single one on cosplay.com or DA, and Google Search keeps insisting that I'm actually looking for Lemon Cosplay. A picture of another Leomon suit would really help me wrap my head around what I do and do not want to do with this costume. Eventually I'd like to work my way up towards working on a Kihmari suit, which would be very similar in structure to a Leomon suit. I'll put some reference pictures under the cut. One day I dream of making a Lion King quad suit cosplay, but that's many years off. I won't attempt that until I have more experience under my belt.

Needless to say, I'm a person with a lot of dreams (and a thing for beefy lions?) who would love some advice from more experienced fursuit makers.

FOX FURSUIT FOR SALE [Mar. 9th, 2008|06:13 pm]

siserval
Due to my move away from all things online and fursuity I now no longer have any use for the fox fursuit I commissioned last summer ! Now that it's finished I've put him onto eBay and thought my friends here might like to know about it.

Photobucket

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130203616050

He has just about 24 hours left and has plenty of watchers, so check him out if you're interested.

Okay, so I'm kind of new here... XD; Whoops.

But... uh, yeah, I have two fursuit cosplays completed... Robbie the Rabbit from Silent Hill 3&4 (he isn't good at all), and a Yellow Wizzrobe from the Legend of Zelda: the Wind Waker.
information under the cutCollapse )

I'm currently working on a simulated digitigrade suit of Wolf Link. I have his handpaws, tail, head, and feet done (contemplating remaking those, too), but I have no idea how to proceed on the padding for his legs. Wolf Link probably isn't the best choice for my first fully furry suit, but... I'm willing to work with it.

Does anyone know how to pull off the padding in the legs? I have no idea where to even start... I want to make a mock-up with denim before I cut any fur (I still need grey and much more white) and the legs are the biggest challenge. I'm hoping to have it finished in time for Realmscon in August/September.

Help! [Dec. 5th, 2007|06:02 pm]

x_merciless_x
Hello all. This is my first time here and I found this group after checking out Beetlecat's website. (I loved your Red XIII costume at animethon!) Anyways...besides that...I am planning on a Renamon costume for the summer of 2008. This will be my first fur-suit costume ever and I wanted to start as soon as possible since I'm a slow worker. I wanted to know if you could all give me some opinions. Like what to use to make the head and such and how to shape certain parts of the body. Also, what would be best to use for the fur, but the cheapest to get. I would like all of the help I can get!

I'm selling my Renamon suit, in case anyone is interested. The details are in the auction, but I'll answer any quesitons anyone has. Someone please give her a good home!

Renamon has won quite a few awards in her day and has always been well-recieved. She's in good condition, having been gently used and stored on a dry, cool closet for a few years. I no longer have a use for the suit, so I'm sending her out into the world!

Help in the planning of a suit. [Jul. 30th, 2007|05:29 pm]

scot_fox
I am currently planning my first ever fursuit and was wondering if I could ask for some help. The reason I am posting here is that the character I am hoping to achieve will be a digimon, in fact a human/digimon hybrid of Joe and Gomamon called Jyoumon. But the biggest problem is that I am hoping for the character to be quadrapedial, the main reason that suitmakers so far have steered clear of it. So I would like to ask te community if they have any ideas of how it can be done or know anyone who would be interested in making it?

P.S no limit on when to be done for.

Otakon 2007: Fursuiting [Jul. 23rd, 2007|01:02 pm]

Otakon 2007 Pics:

I just got back from Otakon yesterday evening. Otakon is the 2nd
largest Anime Con in north america, held in Baltimore, MD. It was
a blast, despite some rather negative/unfortunate goings on late
saturday night.

I've been attending Otakon regularly for about 4 years now, and
every year it just gets bigger and bigger. This year was my first
year staffing as well, some interesting perspective. We had a total
attendence somewhere around 25'000+ people as of sunday morning.

My Umbreon Suit was nowhere near completion, so I rolled in with my
Kemono style bobcat. Some friends put together an impromptu Pokemon
Diamond & Pearl cosplay group. We even ran into a bunch of other
fursuiters, doing everything from Okami, Totoro, to Neopets. Some
from the other side fo the country! I love running into Cosplay
suiters. It always makes me happy :D

My Kemono bobcat was well received by pretty much almost everyone.
I could barely move like 5 feet without having someone ask for a
picture :o

Anyhow, I thought you guys might enjoy these pics for any that
either went or were curious about going. Enjoy :3

Arashi no Yoru ni: Gabu [Apr. 2nd, 2007|01:50 pm]

laughinghyena
Okay, this Sunday I watched Arashi no Yoru ni (Stormy Night) along with my niece.

While I've wanted to make a four-legged costume (Red XIII) for some time now, I think it would be easier to go with a character that stands on two legs. Throughout the movie, while Gabu is a wolf and will walk as a wolf, he will often take human positions and stand upright.

I have made latex masks, but I have never carved foam before. I have the Critter Costuming book, but how would a beginner like me go through this? My younger sister can sew, but I don't know if she would help me. I also understand that I probably would not have this in time for Anime Expo, as I'm also working on various sculpting projects in my art classes.
If I can't make it like I wanted to, who would be the right person or studio that could to a commission like this? I might not go that way because I'm saving up money for a week long trip in Japan, but I just wanted to make sure.

But it would be fun to finally cosplay at AX and have fun with the younger Expo goers and people who know Arashi no Yoru ni.
