If I ever get enough monies I want to buy a fursuit head from The Phoniex Nest! Although, It might be around $900 to $1000. I'll still try XD It will probably take me until im maybe 18 to get that much but i can do it! XD

They don't commission to people under 18, so you should have time.  :sad-fox:

I want a full suit from them in the future! I'm planning to save up money until I turn 18, which will be two years from now. Also, parents can order for you so you should be fine ^^

Phoenix Nest is definitely my favorite maker (well, tied with AutumnFallings) and I really can't wait to commission a Sirius fursuit from them!!!  :fox-:P:

Autumn Fallings is also nice, but she only makes full suits... She said that if you want to commission you Have to buy a full suit.

Guess this is relevant now, since I'm going to be making my own fursuit once I'm done saving up for a ps4 and making props for an otherwise done cosplay project.
Hence the tail stuff, and here's the fun part. I need to figure out a way to attach a foam "Robotic arm" thing to the fursuit, so, yeah, wish me luck, I already have some ideas.

@sharkbait I remember seeing your unboxing video on youtube a while ago! so cute ^^

Also, this is just a general question that I'm sure has been asked, but how do you guys save up for your suits (if you have one or are getting one)?

I know there's the general "have job, set money aside" but I had a friend who ran ads for hours a day to get cash and it worked rather quickly, so I am curious to see if anyone else has a special technique.



....toooootally not asking this because I have to save $3500, no sir. I have a job, but with paying for prescriptions, contacts, rent, etc. I have no money, as expected XD Still trying to save, though!

[also if your parents bought you your suit, you are so blessed and lucky I hope you know that LOL]

I might think about doing like tail commissions or somthin. Im not sure, since my parrents might not be agreeing with it. I'm gonna ask for some furs for xmas. I'm most likely needing white the most. Then I might need some blue, maybe a lighter (ish) brown. What about any other colors that you guys think I might need? What are the most popular colors besides White?
(I hope this aplies to fursuits) (I only thought yes since they can be a good part of the fursuit)

Also, this is just a general question that I'm sure has been asked, but how do you guys save up for your suits (if you have one or are getting one)?

I'd say its best to just set money aside since you already have a job. $10 every paycheck or whatever you can afford can go a long way, just like saving for anything else. Plus, most makers offer some kind of payment plan so you can take advantage of that. I commissioned mine during the summer, when I was living at home and didn't have to pay for anything (and working more), and was able to pay it off slowly through the summer ^^
