These color suits really really mean something special to us...in July 2012 my sister, her boyfriend and her 4 dogs were all hit by a speeding drunk while in the crosswalk... only my sister survived....
She has been unable to walk since the incident.
In autumn we found out my sister would more than likely be unable to quadsuit at FC due to needing a bone graft operation in December... and her purple suit is the only 2 legged one she has...
This multi-suit personal project is something my sister has been wanting to see happen since she created the purple suit 3 years ago.
When I learned she still would be unable to walk/quadsuit come FC is when I began producing 8 fursuits in record time, all in just under 2 months. With sewing help from my niece and her two teenage furry friends I was able to make my sister's wish for this year's FC come true.
And even though this project looks huge it did not take any real time from customer work because I enlisted help :3
The fur used was also 70% fur I already had; leftovers from other projects/cancellations, or rarities I hoarded.
I feel guilty taking time for a personal project but my sister so wanted to see this group of colored canines happen...
and she has suffered so much loss and disappointment this year that I just could not disappoint her for FC .... which already greeted her with so much disappointment... Elden (RIP) was to be part of our candy canine group, it was going to be his first FC, this was my sister's first FC without her dog Winry (RIP) she still cannot walk and could not quadsuit and quadding is something she takes great joy from...
Creating this group of suits is what kept her excited for FC and her happiness matters to me more than anything <3

green "Ikana" purple "Keana" pink "Puptart" yellow "Rally" orange "Totem" blue "Nova" aqua "Aloha" red "Torch" white "Canvas"
I wanted to make a black one but I simply ran out of time and stamina (we also considered brown, and wanted to name it Turd, or Mud... but Turd makes me snicker lol) Most of these were created in just under 2 months
And originlally white was not part of the plan, but then the crayon idea happened, and then I found a vintage white crayon and went "Fuuuuuuu making a white one" which I am so happy to have made it because Serpy ended up being the one to wear Canvas
(so happy to give her a chance to suit again considering what happened)
Paw pads from dream vision creations, I was gonna go padless but the crayons slipped out of our hands XD
