Lots of work went into this one, and I did not only the suit but also the outfit (which I was given artistic liberty on) this is a 3/4 suit, the body is pants with padded legs and attached tail with both belt loops and built in suspenders.
This uses a rare fur, no longer made, and I had just BARELY enough to get this done, I fretted about the ammount of fur for ages, thankfully I had enough.
Please keep in mind that the suit legs look VERY baggy because the model is not the same size as the customer.
The dreads have a touch of bird grit (ie cleaned sand) in the very tips, the bottom 6 inches is filled with foam beanbag pellets, and the rest is stuffing, this way the dreads swing and swish and are very lively <3
This big gal is getting mailed off to Canada soon
EDIT: 7/16/2012 RIP our dogs: All four of my sister's dogs, the ones seen in our videos, were killed in an instant in a hit and run which also broke my sister's leg and severed her boyfriend's leg (he is modeling this costume) along with breaking his pelvis.
