I'm having a horrible time with making my fursuit ears.  All I have left is to fur it and I've done two sets of ears and they both looked horrible! I want them to look good and am wondering if there are any good ear tutorials on how to make and attach the ears to a resin based head.  Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!

I'm gonna go ahead and ask this here; I wanted to make some small horns to wear as hair clips (trying to avoid the headband scenario, but if it's unavoidable I'll use it), anyone have any materials they would suggest? I was thinking about making a pair out of clay so that I could use a mold and make casts, but I've never made a mold before, so I don't know what to use to make the mold nor the cast. Anyone have experience on the subject?
 
 
I tis very easy get some fimo clay what color you like  you can use bobby pins if your hair is og enough basically shape the  clay to whatever shap you want then poke what yoou what to use to put it in your threw unless you pla on elastic you woudl just poke a hole big enough to squeez your elestic threw  befoe you bk e you r clay if yoou wnat to use bobby pin or baretts you athc the horn to it before baking

Does anyone know or heard of someone who makes wolf masks out of high impact plastic. I have decided to make a minimal fur suit  for my airsofting and paintballing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This is a really late reply, but just in case anyone needs it at a later date, the best way to make light weight horns (that I've come across) is to cut a horn slightly smaller than when you want out of styrofoam.  After that, you take the styrofoam mold and cover it in air dry paper clay (commonly called doll clay).  After dry, sand to desired texture and paint.

i was wondering if it would be cheaper to make a resin fursuit mask or a foam base. i know foam would be easier but the resin look so cool and more realistic X3

My mum is planning on making a few fursuit commissions in order to gain some money. she has materials, but we'd like to know how to make the head and such (she has years of experience in textiles). Are there any tutorials on how to do fursuit heads (preferably toony ones with follow-me eyes)?

It's probably going to be a few years until I get a fursuit but I have some questions about it. How much on average does it cost for a well made costom fursuit and what are the best sites to look on for them?

I'm not sure who has answered questions or not, but I've helped out a few people on making fursuits (I'm in the process of drafting my second one now) So... if anyone wants to ask, feel free to PM me :)

Strange question.

How do you guys make eyebrows?
I'm not including it in the furring process.
Heck, I don't even think eyebrows look good on my fursona ;P

Okay, I'm try to make at least a partial if not full feline suit on a budget. Anyone have any tips or tricks I can try out?
P.s: I'm going for the more toony style
