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.
The Wizzrobe is made from the foam over balaclava method. It's a lot hotter, heavier, and overall more uncomfortable than my other masks. I remade the eyes, they're fun foam and chiffon-like fabric. The robes are generic monk robes I dyed, trimmed, and added a hood to.
Robbie just brought problem after problem. The original head is much nicer, but it didn't fit as large over my head as it should've. (and second Robbie's head is still too small in my mind) It was also a different colour than the flannel fabric I used for his tail and upper body. I made Robbie #2 two weeks before Ikkicon... and I finished it the day before we left. u_u; His ears are poseable, which is one good thing about him. The fan's battery container broke, so the battery would hang and unclip, and then the fan container broke off. We used bungee cord to hold it in place, but it made the fan jam.
I really want to remake Robbie sometime, since I love Robbie, but I'm only 15 and I have a younger sister who is afraid of just about everything. u_u and she was screaming and crying while I made Robbie... it was just miserable.
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.
