Kitsune Tailed Cheefox by LilleahWest Kitsune Tailed Cheefox by LilleahWest
This suit was a lot of work but a lot of fun and she came out super cute, I was going for realism crossed with that cute Japanese fursuit style.

 The tails are each 80% crushed up packing peanuts so they are actually really not all that heavy and they swish and bounce around really well!

This was semi-artistic liberty in that the customer gave me a basic drawing and a list of what they wanted and I went to town with the design, coming up with certain things like the back marking and exact face patterning on my own.

The body fur is a lucky local find, a short teddy fur rather than a seal fur, great quality, super thick and with a nice broken up spot pattern that did well in not showing seams... the backing is that odd "carpet style" as I call it though and thus it was very hard to sew and exploded fuzz when cut!

Here is a video showing those tails in action youtu.be/JEJZFcHNPt0



This suit features silicone paw pads and resin claws from Dream Vision Creations and a teddy bear nose, all other work is 100% hand made by me including the hand painted back-lit LED eyes.

Hope its okay to ask, but what made you decide to choose packing peanuts over stuffing? :O

it weighted A LOT less. With pillow fluff the tails were sickeningly heavy, they just sagged there and literally were a backache and made the support belt dig into your gut... but once I switched out most the fluff for packing peanuts the tails became amazingly light weight and all bouncy n swishy.
