Crayons! by LilleahWest Crayons! by LilleahWest
Memorial plush of Elden created by [link] ... and we found him a crayon too ;u;

My sister used a knee walker for the weekend (which looks like the love child of a bike and a scooter) she was happy to be out of her wheelchair.

These color suits really really mean something special to us...
in July 2012 my sister, her boyfriend Hari/Elden 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 while she was just barely able to handle the Pokemon gathering at Sac-Anime it left her sore and exhausted despite spending most of her time in the wheel chair, FC is a much bigger con and we did not want to risk harm to her leg.
Sac-Anime winter 2013 Sac-Anime summer 2012 My sis's favorite quadsuit

I feel guilty taking time away from customer orders 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 heartache and 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 originally 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 :D (so happy to give her a chance to suit again considering what happened... RIP Vex)

The silicone paw pads are from Dream Vision Creations, I was gonna go padless but the crayons slipped out of our hands XD

I feel sorry for your sister D: Those stupid drunks! >.< I hate em so much! I don't know what to say about all that I am just in shock! D: this happens so much and it breaks my heart when it does! I am glad your sister's dream came true,and that she survives,I thought it was perfectly fine you took time from customers,to do that! i'd have done the same! I am so happy you did this for your sis,that her dream came true,and that she was out of her wheel chair for a while! I pray she will be able to walk sometime in the future! do the doctors think there's any chance!? I hope there is! and honestly,I feel so bad...I re-read the entire description three times! I couldn't help it! ... dang it....I wanna run over the one who did this,and put him in a wheel chair,and let him see what that's like! and let him also see what it's like to lose some of those important to you! I know that feeling!
 I recognize that quad suit,it's made by Beastcub,right?  and I have heard this story SO MANY TIMES! each time I read it,I feel bad,and my hatred for drunk drivers grows even more! >:'C THEY are just...I HAVE NO WORD CRUEL ENOUGH! to describe em! there AWFUL! they shouldn't do that! it's stupid! I wish I could of stopped that,and stop drunk drivers! :~; But alas! I couldn't,and I can't I feel so helpless! p~p *flails* STUPID DRUNKS! FFFF I hate em so much,not there soul! but there actions cause there actions are just EVIL! but...ya know...God does things...for a reason! I will be praying for her to be able to walk again! there has to be SOMEWAY! she could walk,or stand! there just has to be! D:

wow... Reading the back story sent tears to my eyes. ;_; what a beautiful thing for you to do this just to allow your sister some form of happiness. You did an amazing job to create these suits, where I struggled to complete one, you managed to complete 9! and they all look amazing!

Very cute!!! May I hug them?
Swampqueen Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
I saw these at FC and thought they were really lovely! This group really stuck out in my memory, as something special. I only just now learned that this was your project! I *knew* there was a story behind the angel plush when I saw him, it all makes sense now. UuU

And holy cow, woman! Did you really do all of those suits in 2 months? Woaaah!!
RavynRaver Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think it'd be cool to do a brown and black still! :) GREAT job on the suits, and tell your sister she is in my prayers.

The costumes are so great. Costume groups are my favorite things to see at conventions. You and your sister are really strong, inspiring people. I wish you all the best.

Don't feel guilty. You're still in 'surviving' mode. What an achievement, and what a happy way of asserting your family's triumph over misfortune and death!

This is just fantastic. I get the warm fuzzies looking at the plush, and even more warm fuzzies from reading the story of this project.
There is no community more caring than the furry/suiting community.
