Well I've taken my first step to constructing a fur suit, and honestly, i'm a little nervous. I kind of wonder in the back of my head if i'll have the guts to go out and use it for one thing, and the other reason is because I am worried weather i'll be able to do a good job.
Anyhow, I found a tutorial wiki page that has some pretty good instructions, some of which are a little more than i want to do. They had a good idea for the head though that i liked, although I am going to take a different route at it. They used a strip of aluminum to make the formation of the head, and then poly mesh. I have decided to just use wire mesh and skip the aluminum strips. It was cheaper on materials to just buy the wire mesh. It might have been a little softer for somebody to touch with the poly mesh, but i think it could have been too soft, and with the wire mesh i'll be able to put form into the structure of the head a lot easier. We'll see how it goes, do you guys have any thoughts on that?
Also, i'm wondering if i should just settle for some short fur tiger print fabric that actually looks pretty good, or if I should go online and buy some long fur fabrics of solid colors and then sew in the markings. I'm a White bengal tiger, but that will all change if i settle for the fabric that is easy for me to get. Problem with the stuff at the store though, is i don't know if it will be enough.
