OMG that face is so cute ;w;
And those digitigrade legs are killer
Thank you panda! Oddly enough I was aiming for a semi fierce look but then when I put on the fabric and eyes it became an adorable dragon. *sighs* But hay! Everyone loves Rivet at states, regionals and hopefully worlds if I don't start WWIII with my antics so that's what count.

Digitigrade legs are awesome!

You could always add some eyelids and be extra-fierce  :fox-;):

So, uh, does having the school mascot suit at my house and using it like it's my own fursuit count? If so, I've got a few pics of me in it, though my profile pic has one there. I also miiiiight have broken the rules and have a headless pic   :lol-fox:

I don't see why it wouldn't count, fursuits are basically just custom made mascot costumes anyways. I'd love to see some more pics of you mascoting :fox-:):

Hello! I hope it's OK to ask this here, but I'm in need of some advice. I really want to get a fursuit of my fursona eventually, but I'm not sure if I should commission or try creating it myself. I would much rather do the latter, as I think it'd be a lot of fun! But I have no experience with fursuits, don't really know how to operate a sewing machine (suppose I would make myself learn?), etc. It would also be cheaper it seems. But what do you guys think? I would want to spend a ton of money on a fursuit only to have it come out crappy. It would be a dragon one too, and I'm not sure how much it would cost, or where to even start with the design - especially with the wings. Does anyone have tips for saving up? I'm really supposed to be saving money for a car, so it's going to be a while until this happens, but it's getting harder and harder to wait... do you think starting with a partial would be best, or...?

Oh gosh, this post is all over the place - I apologize. Thank you to anyone who can help, though! It's mighty appreciated. ;w;

ok ok ok lemme try this

if you work hard and do your research, first fursuits can turn out amazing! you have to keep in mind that they are extremely labor intensive and the materials can cost quite a bit, especially if you dont already have the sewing machine/needles/etc
Many parts, such as the head, must be hand-sewn to look their best. if you don't feel comfortable with your sewing abilities, it'd make sense to practice on smaller projects first. ;v; faux fur is a pain to work with, especially for new sewers.
machine-sewing a fursuit requires a heavy duty machine, otherwise it won't turn out well for the fabric or the machine. ;v;

if you plan on commissioning a suit, starting with a light partial would be really helpful. as someone with a padded suit, partials still get hot and hard to wear! faux fur is heavy and that with foam doesn't breathe well. it's important to build up your endurance!

most makers will upgrade you to a fullsuit later on if you decide you want a bodysuit to go with your partial, so i'd really recommend that. especially if you aren't sure of your heat tolerance or endurance. i've heard too many fursuiting horror stories that happened because someone didn't know their limits before getting into suit.

for the saving part, i'd think it's more important to save up for that car first. that's more of a necessity than the suit. plus, the car means you can travel around more which means more job offers which means bringing in the $$$ B)

if you do go with making the suit yourself, i'm always here for advice. ;v; i've got a bit of experience (and i've made a handful of heads and bodysuits)
