Just some advice on Entei's paws, please

So Im making an Entei quadsuit, and Im starting on the feet paws. Some people like using old shoes or slippers, but Im going with the "sock paw" technique. I was thinking about maybe using fleece for the paws, because after studying pics of Entei the line art of the paws is smooth/sleek lines and the paws dont look very furry.

Im planning on using faux/fake fur for the body, etc, and you can tell Entei's brown body is furry, but the paws dont look furry.

Is fleece a good choice? or will it look bad because the seems (from sewing fleece) will be sort of visible?

I would not use fleece its not the best looking there are two options i suggest one is use regular fur and get a pair of clippers and shave the fur short its veary easy to do and adds a sleek look that isnt to fuzzy other is a short fur that is cotten like you can find it at joanns

ic, ok. we've got a JoAnns here, I'll look around there, cuz if I can find something fairly cheap for the paws, I'll spend most of the money of the costume on the main fur. The 2nd thing you mentioned, cotton fur? Not sure what that is, cotton is dye-able right, and fur is hard to dye... O.o I guess Im just confused what cotton fur is.

How about Micro-fleece? Micro-fleece is softer and fuzzier than regular fleece, its like pajama pants or bathrobe type fuzzy fleece.
