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?

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.

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 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.
