So far I've only made two mascot heads. Sesshoumaru's dog form was the first made it out of paper mache and the teeth were sculpey and the mouth started falling apart cause it was cardboard and the vision was horrible but he wasn't too bad for not knowing what I was doing heh. I also made a paw for him I'd never be able to wear him and I don't feel like started over.

My second head was Meowth I tried mesh and he turned out okay much easier to make then a big demon dog. I've even worn him to a convention I still gotta make the fursuit body, feet and hands which I'll probably end up not doing.

My next project is gonna be hard cause I'm doing the whole fursuit its something I've been wanting to do for awhile Draco from Harry Potter as a ferret. He'll have Draco's hair and a slytherin scarf.
I want to try using foam. Arg I was suppose to have started by now but haven't gotten any materials yet.

I also want to do a dog from Ginga Densetsu Weed. Fur is bloody expensive so until I get a job Draco's the only one I'm doing. I do have a gift card to joann fabrics that I got for xmas I still haven't used only $20 on it. I'm freaked out about messing up the fur.

I make digitigrade before, on Suicune. I simply made the digitigrade pattern with cotton fabric, then stuffed it. It actually came out beautifully, and the commissioner loves it.

Now, I am going to make digitigrade with foam, since the Suicune fursuit was my first digitigrade suit. When your making foam digitigrade, or digitigrade and bodysuits period, you will need a duct tape dummy of yourself.

I've done a few creature cosplays..Taking a bit of a break from them at the moment though. My next one is kind of in the air. It's going to be a Pokemon, but I'm not sure which one I want to do first. Ah well. x3

I've seen them before, is Ninetails a Quad suit?

Try to make a Pokemon that was never cosplayed, it will be one-of-a-kind. But then again, cosplay as whoever you want.

Yes. One of the two four-legged creatures I have..

I usually go for ones not done before. Which is why I did Ninetales.

I already know which ones I want to do in time.
Just need to figure which one I would like to do first that's all.

I... I'm still not sure about ever doing a quad myself... I feel like, in theory, I could do pretty well, especially since I don't recall any guys doing ones, and, well, shorter legs longer torso, it should work better for a guy to do it...
As it stands, there's nothing in particular I would want to do that way, so I'm not too pensive about it, heh.

I'm just getting started on my ivysaur, which will be a quad. Though, rather than extending the arms, I wanna shorten the legs. I plan to hide my feet by pulling my legs back and using ivysaurs big bottom, allowing me to go on hands and knees and still look exactly like ivysaur.

Your Ivysaur suit sounds cool hope you get some good pictures.

I'm heading off to the Kumori-con in a couple months; and my friends are all going as FFX characters and since I'm a fursuitor the suggested (more like screamed it at me) that I be a Chocobo (a big chicken in crack). I'll probably end up doing it.

I also want to make a couple half fursuits; I'm thinking Haku and hopefully Yakul.

w00t! Chocobos! Just be careful as EVERYONE will want to ride you around. also, can't wait to see ur partials and GL on them.

Ivysaur is going slowly but I WILL have this done by Fanime if it's the last thing I do. Will post pics later.

I know I want to do quite a few more Pokemon suits..
I have a Scyther I started on awhile back. The head and torso, but not the rest finished.
I also plan to do Lucario, Mawile, and have been wanting to do Mewtwo. c:<

I can't wait to see Ivysaur. Bulba and Ivysaur are two of my favorites. I use to be able to do their voices but it hurts my throat!

I've been wanting to do one of Eevee's evolutions forever now. I'd like to do Shiny Umbreon. I also wanna do Shinx or one of his evolutions. But first Ferret Draco! Hopefully get fur soon.........
