The head took me a week to make. Plastic canvas base, and the fabric I used is fleece.

it looks really nice! I'm using the foam base method. I'm trying to get it done before Saturday because I'm going with family for Easter and I want to show them.

Ah, cool~ I like the plastic canvas method. It seems sturdier (my first head was a foam base). However it's harder to put together.

I see why it would be harder. I'm currently taking a break from it.

Oh nooo don't use plastic mesh!!! I've been making fursuits for 6 years and foam is much, MUCH sturdier, trust me. Plastic mesh breaks down after very few uses, and cannot handle heavy use, being pulled at, pushed or folded! Foam can bounce back to pretty much anything. It breaks my heart when beautiful heads are made with plastic mesh, because its going to break down very, very quickly...

It should be fine for a while, its just that foam is more durable overall  :fox-:P: If you're really careful with them, it should be fine. Though I've heard that sweat can degrade the plastic :O

But anyways, I don't think I've told you yet, but that head is great <3 The fleece looks really smooth and I like that nose

I take really good care of it; I keep it on top of a really high shelf so nothing can touch it.

And thanks!! :DD

Some pics of what I have so far!



 
I know it's far from the best, but I'm really happy with how it came out seeing as this is my very first time making one.

May as well put in my two cents. I love Kilcodo Costumes, OneEyedDoe and OneFurAll Studios.
