When I get more progress on Scyther I'll post some progress shots. c:
I know. Lucario is immensely popular. XD But still. I'd like to do it.
Mewtwo. Ah. I'd like to do it, glowing eyes and all. Someone here made a mewtwo and it made me sad to see it. It wasn't horrible, but wasn't 'omgz best Mewtwo eva!'

Gah! Scyther is seriously my favorite Pok'emon! I cannot wait to see some progress on him, I wish you all the best.

Haha, I do agree. I see alot of people planning on doing Lucario, he seems to be the popular fursuit now. I've already seen a nice Red Lucario on the Fursuit Community.

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.

I'm going to make a Chocobo too! Chobi, from Final Fantasy: Unlimited to be exact. I started making the head, plastic canvas style (it's going to have a moving beak) and the Isabel, which is a watch that hangs from the collar on his neck.

I don't know how to go about making the rest of his body though. I wanted to be able to enter from his neck so I can hide the zipper with his collar. His knees baffle me, as I can't tell whether they're normal Chocobo knees (the kind that face backwards) or if they have two bends. The anime conveniently seems to hide the way he walks by only showing him from the tummy up or only showing his walk cycle for a few seconds in tall grass. His main body is what troubles me most. I don't know what I should do to make him extend outwards and round his back. I was thinking of chicken wire and a hula hoop. (Much to the effect of a hoop skirt, if that makes sense.)

Also, one more thing. I can't seem to find any kind of decent yellow fur. It is either the wrong colour, curly, fun-fur, cabbage rose swirl-style or really really short. There was one site with nice yellow fake mink fur I saw once, but I haven't seen anything to its likeness. Canada just doesn't want to sell nice yellow fur.

Also, if anyone could recommend a type of fur, that'd be great.

I apologize if I'm hi-jacking this thread.

I'm re-doing a lot of it though, since that was a 3 or 4 day rush job. Then I'm making his armor, and that will have the glowing eyes. :3

This one however made me a sad panda (but it also prompted me to finally do mine so there was a decent one out there).

Very nice furs.
That was the fur I was looking for! Thank you so much, Koisnake!

EDIT: I just realized they even have the suede I was looking for. Wonderful!

No, your Mewtwo was the best I've seen that is completed so far. XD
Oh I know. Horrible Mewtwo is horrible. x.x
But no, the Mewtwo I saw was similar to that one.

I have to agree with the if I see a badly done creature to want to do it better.
But also if I see one done justice I don't bother. XD

I dunno. I've seen someone do a really great Renamon, could always do an alternative level?

Thanks!
I say the world could always use more Renamon. Hell, I'd do her if I were a girl. So go for it!

If I've seen one already done justice... I'd still go for it to see how I shape up or if I can surpass it. A little competitive, yeah, but that's the nature of my art, heh.

Lawl, I am very competitive when it comes to the fursuit world. Its always fun doing fursuits of characters that people think you cannot accomplish too.

Would you be referring to Valoo?

Does anyone else here look at a picture of fur on the internet, and can suddenly feel it in your imagination, but it feels real... like it's in your hand? I just did that right now, and now I know which sample to pick out of the two I was looking at.

I was worse: I hugged some fur that I *loved*. It's the exact color I need, but I can't find the second color I need. I hope to be able to buy 3-4 yards of it before the end of the month and my coupon expires. It was the softest thing I've felt. (And about $27 a yard, it better be)

I don't consider myself a complete fursuiter, because I tend not to make heads for my outfits. I think personally, I feel much better using my face and making expressions. (I know there's movable mouths and all, but I feel more comfortable with latex prosthetics)

I just got some samples from a site, and I like one of them but the others feel fake. There's one I haven't been able to put down, and I think this one may be a winner!

Yeah.

Um, sorta. Most of the time, I just say 'Hey, that fur look so soft' and will perhaps buy it.
