How to build horse heads by LilleahWest How to build horse heads by LilleahWest
this is also how I built Robot Unicorn, who served as my test subject and its 2 years old now and holding up splendidly to my abuse, even to being thrown to the ground, crammed in suit cases, and being left in a hot car.

I fully trust this method, which gives you a nice hallow head for mounting LED eyes and fans into, and gives you much more stable results for quadsuits, I also think it may be lighter than carved foam.

The colored one had its cheek foam and neck arch altered after this photo, the red eared one had foam added to the cheeks and eye ridge after this, the unicorn is a quadsuit head which has vision out a collar, the other 2 have vision out mesh in the neck just under the head.

Is this just for anthro horse fursuits or do you use this method for horse quadsuits (like Epona) too?

do you think this method would work for a normal anthro mask, only obviously without the back of the head and the large size?

EVA foam and craft foam. Think gym mats.
