My Sister's Wish by LilleahWest My Sister's Wish by LilleahWest
These color suits really really mean something special to us...
in July 2012 my sister, her boyfriend 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...
Her boyfriend (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

More of my work

edit: I was unhappy with the awkward angle of the yellow head and expression of the green one, Photoshopped on heads from other photo p: now it's peeeeerfect.

And it is so incredible of you to do this for your sister. You are an amazing person to do all that work just for her. She's so lucky to have you and I hope you're both doing okay after your tragedy.

Again, amazing work!

Wow.. I am very sorry to hear it, but I am glad that you and your sister have stayed strong through everything. Fursuiting has only been a recent interest of mine, and more of a fleeting fancy at that, but I am glad that is is able to bring your family such joy - especially in light of what you've both been facing. I guess I am just amazed at how special these things can be.

way to go on the costumes too, because that is by no means a small feat/miracle!
sodasock Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Student Artist

And i wish your sister love and happiness
MewKaylathevampire Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013
