need help with twin fursuit!

#1

Post by 2017Blizzard »

hi all, i am reasonable new to this forum
My sister and I are planning to make "twin fursuits" (hopefully by next rAge?...) but we can't decide between 3 ways of making their designs:

A) same species but they look different:

B) they look the same but have inverse colours:

or C) look the same with slight differences:
https://i.pinimg.com/originals/a0/f6/32 ... f8446a.jpg

which type do you like the best (A, B or C)?

Sorry inconvenience of the links!
(note - I do not own any of the images and I'm just using them as examples)

A combination of B and C would be cool in my opinion.

I dig A

But it's because I am extremely biased towards toony designs xD
I'd rather be fursuiting

Does anyone know where you can find craft foam for the eyes in Gauteng?
(i used this thread because i felt it was not worth making a new thread - is it?)

Craft foam you can find at any PNA or similar. Not sure that's your best option though. Check out this site for some great tutorials.

I use plastic 5lt ice cream tubs for the inner part of the eye and of I make the follow me eyes I make the ridges from craft foam.

Making the entire eye from craft foam might not work too well since it can be very flimsy

I love matrices's tutorials! thanks for all the advice, I will check at PNA.
Never thought of using the ice-cream tubs... I was going to use plastic but bowls create a rounded affect in the eyes which wouldn't work for the 3D toony eyes, but the ice-cream tubs will work!
