Hey Lilleah, what size eye blanks do you recommend? I've been using 1 1/4 inch ones but I feel like they could be smaller...

Wow that hair site will come in handy whenever I need manes for equines! Thanks for sharing, certainly cheaper than chopping wigs.

I wish I could find those unicorn horns you use that are straight. All I keep finding are the curved horns and I need a straight horn for a character cosplay fursuit for myself eventually.

I use icicle ornaments for horns, the exact kind I use are not easy to find online though and I just cleared out an ebay seller of theirs.

Thank you so much for sharing this list!  I must say though, fabric empire seems cheaper than either of those sites, it's on your side of the country too, might be worth a price compare next time you are shopping =)

Mendels runs out of a small little mom-n-pop-shop in San Francisco a mere 2 hours from me, their customer service is top notch and I get my order the next day with cheap shipping since they are so close, so I go to them first :)

That's a good reason, being in Florida it takes me about a week to get my fur ups ground ><
