Mischief Makers announced they're pushing back their reopening until the new year. I'm going to try really really hard to save up to get Mystic done by them c: it might mean little to know new art for the next six months but that'll be ok because I've been wanting a suit since I joined the fandom

On the poll, I would say yes but ears and a tail aren't really a fursuit, are they?

Only one more year until I can get a fursuit because I'll be 18
The makers I'm interested are
The Phoenix Nest
Lemonbrat
Sunny Valley Creations
Don't hug cacti
It'll probably be a few years from now because I need to save up

Take this with a grain of salt, because I can't find the source again, but I remember reading a review that said that Don't Hug Cacti suits aren't very good quality. Supposedly the seams were tearing after one use, and the fur was stained and horrible quality. Maybe I just stumbled upon one bad review out of hundreds of good ones, but I'm still iffy on them.

Awhile back I heard they were okay but this was like 3 years ago
I'll probably avoid them tho

As far as I'm aware DHC actually had multilple bad reviews from bad customer service to bad quality suits that only looked good. This was years ago though, Idk how their suits or customer service is now. I know I like the look or their suits more nowadays but their influx of bad reviews left a bad taste in my mouth, at least at the moment.
Always look at reviews for your makers, more recent ones are even better.

If anyone can recommend me makers that can make a variety of species especially rodents I'd really appreciate it!
I want to start planning to get one.

MeanGreenCheeseMachine is a fairly unknown maker. They're pretty young, and they've done rats before that turned out nice.
Offhand, I can't think of any others who are known for rodents.
CandiFursuits (who I'm planning to commission) and ARoccoSuits are cheap and have a lot of experience. I'm sure both would be good options.

(hope this isn't too much of a bump)
Here's a few photos of my fursuit. I made her myself! This was a public outing near easter, got a lot of good responses. (and a few bad from adults, hah.)  Since then she's gotten feetpaws, armsleeves, and a new tail. She'll have her hair tuft soon.

So I got some cheap material cause I knew I'd mess up and I made some hooves with em
Sure enough, I messed up, but not so horribly
I learned from the first hoof, so the second fits much better than the first
Anyway here's what I did while I waited for my power to come back on, not too spectacular but hey it's my first ever try
I got fur and fleece left so hopefully soon I can get some foam and make hooves for muh feets

Can you send me a walkthrough of how you made them? I'm gonna make Jersey Devil, and want cloven hooves. Please PM me.

been searching online for led matrix's and electronics I'll need to make Pyra's suit and it's actually pretty cheap so I'll be going to hobby lobby soon to get fur and stuff (Maybe felt or fleece for the non fluff parts) and hopefully it'll be easy to make it ;u;

Since y'all wanna know how I made em...


This was the pattern I used. Spread your fingers and your thumb as far as you can and trace, and then draw the lines where the hooves go. I put a bit of a curve where the thumb is. Then, cut those pieces out.



Obviously, fur goes down, like on a real animal. You can just flip your pattern over for the other side, but I probably don't need to mention that. Make sure to mark which side of the hoof your parts are!
(I'm using fleece for the hooves, btw)


After you cut out your pieces, sew each side together, so you'll end up with two sides of one hoof. I used a blanket stitch. After this, you can sew it all together. Make sure to use pins and whatnot to make sure you don't trap the fur.


And then you'll have this! The edge I put around the cuff is just for decoration and I used this tutorial:

Uhhh I hope this was good enough, the pictures suck cause I just took them while I was making the hooves and didn't think to take good pictures lol
