View Full Version : I need help picking out what animal character (fursuit) to make!

03-05-2008, 02:19 PM
Hello there.

I adore making fursuits, but I have yet made one of my very own yet. I am planning to take this fursuit to Colossalcon, hopefully.

My twin sister, Roleplaywulf and I was originally planning to make Akatora (http://i31.tinypic.com/9sfreh.jpg) and Kurotora (http://i26.tinypic.com/316xcue.jpg) from Ginga Nagareboshi Gin, but quality long pile dark blue or dark gray faux fur is almost impossible to find, so we were forced to drop the plan.

So, we are leaving it to you guys to help us think of a new animal/ creature to cosplay as. Which animal/ creature would you like to see come to life? Here is some I randomly thought of. (Note, sorry no Wolf Link, Ratchet, Suicune or Pikachu since I am doing those for commissions and I hate making fursuits twice)

Wolf's Rain wolves
Haku (spirited away)
Sora Lion
Princess Mononoke wolves and the elk

and the list goes on an on. You don't need to choose from this list, but these are just some creatures that came in mind that I was familiar with.

ANY HELP AT ALL will be appreciated!

I would definitely like to see another Okami around here. ^__^

If not that, the Wolf's Rain wolves would be great too! Which ones were you thinking of?

These would be cool to see:

Phyllo (http://myanimelist.net/character.php?id=36) from .hack//Roots
Hachi-Kuma (Beebears) from Kyo Kara Maoh!
Tony Tony Chopper (http://myanimelist.net/character.php?id=309) from One Piece
A member from Keroro's platoon from Keroro Gunsou (http://myanimelist.net/anime.php?id=516)
Kamineko (http://medaverse.com/files/Azumanga%20daioh/bscap018.jpg) or Mayaa (http://www.animepaper.net/gallery/scans/Azumanga-Daioh/item141318/) from Azumanga Daioh

I'm always up for seeing any good Final Fantasy costume. Lion Sora is also one of the darned cutest things. I think part of the choice should depend on what sort of effect and character you want to go for.

FF Summons. I certainly wouldn't mind more Moombas in the world, heh. Red13 would be sweet as well.
Any of 493 Pokemon. ...Well, okay, I suppose not all of them are feasibly cosplayable.
Lion Sora would be cool. Perhaps create form variants, like I made Anti-Form Lion?

Okami pretty much wins any list of animal cosplays, ever. Ammy rocks.

Red XIII is a close second from your list, but you know what I'd really like to see? Batou's basset hound from the second Ghost in the Shell movie, "Innocence".

Okami or Sora Lion would get my votes.

One's awesome, one's adorable. ^_^

I love Red XIII, and I always believe that what costumes other people are making should have no impact on what costumes you make, but there's been a number of Red XIII done pretty recently. He's still awesome, though, so do him if you want to! ^_^

Thank you all for your opinions! Here is what I have in mind now.
-Sora Lion

And here is my final thoughts
-Sora Lion

I would be Okami but I suck at props xD;

Ammy's weapon isn't that hard to make. *knows from experience* A few cardboard circles, Sculpey details, shimmery fabric and hot glue are about all you need. :)

I was going to make her, but decided not to, since I'm a person who likes to make things that aren't made too often, so I can give a challenge to myself ^^ Plus, I don't like making things out of cardboard since its alittle cheap for my taste.

Plus, I never did play the game xD People kept telling me to do her, so I added her to the suggestion list.

If you go with Red you might want to check out new pictures from ToyFair for reference: http://tf08.figures.com/showphoto.php?photo=5977&size=big&cat=

I'm excited about that! I've been waiting years for them to get around to a new Red XIII figure.
