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!

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.
