Partials are usually around $500, while fullsuits are $1000+. Remember, you're paying for quality; so even if you find one that's super cheap, it probably won't last long or look that good in person.

We actually have a whole thread dedicated to fursuits, with plenty of pictures and general info c:

That's just an estimate of them though, if you're lucky you may find some that cost much less but their quality isn't all that good. The best part about a fursuit is that you can also make your own! Sure it may not be good at first, but with every attempt it'll be better.  :)

Alright, so I'm a suit maker's assistant and I'm currently buying a suit.

Suits can range a LOT in price. I'm friends with someone who makes AMAZING fullsuits and they start at 1000 dollars. My favorite fursuit maker's suits start at 1900. There's some that start at 2700. It totally depends where you buy your suit.

I'm currently getting a partial of a monster dog character I have for 600 dollars, and I will later upgrade to a fullsuit for an added 400.

It just totally depends where you get the suit from.

As stated it really depends, although for quality suits its 1000 or more.
If you find a cheap maker be sure to look at reviews and just research them cause some cheap makers do make quality suits but you wanna be sure. Its also good to just research your chosen maker anyway cause some big name makers can still deliver shoddy work, like DHC I heard don't have the best the quality despite their reputation(although they could have changed), so research your makers.

Sorry if it sounded confusing.

I saw a relatively good realistic partial at nebcon for 150.
Sometimes you can even get special deals, a group Im in has a maker offering a suit for material cost.

this pretty much

(DHC is trash oh my god)

the lesser known, the cheaper a suit is. however, quality varies a lot from maker to maker so make sure you get pictures and reviews before buying a suit from anyone.

if you want a premade suit, furbuy is always a good option.

Here is my suit.

http://youtu.be/vaVvd79xuhE





My suit is by SkyPro fursuits.  Total it came with the fursuit, two heads, and a complete custom leather harness set with halter.

Cost was $2,200 roughly.

Depends on the quality. I mean, you can get a complete rubbish suit for like $50 from some crazy FA user with like 20 watchers.

Or you can go to a professional fursuit company and get some extremely realistic lavish one for $5,000.   However, most ones people wear at conventions can range from $500-$1000 Like Panda said. And it also depends how many pieces you end up getting. Full suits will cost more because it's more material for the artist to use.

I have three fingers per hand so I can touch things, go laser tagging, and use touch screen phones.

Yes it is.  Imagine putting on long john pants, the shirt.  Then a t-shirt and jeans, then coverall's over you legs, a winter jacket, then a thick hat to keep your head warm.  With all that on, step outside when it is 80 degrees.  X3  That is how hot the can be.

Well, it all depends of the complexity and the maker. Partials are usually more than $500, while fullsuits are often over the two to three thousand mark. Mine that I'm paying off right now is a fullsuit and it'll be around $2,430.

That's right. Price usually is based on the quality, how complex it is, type (partial or full), extra features (Moveable jaw, LED eyes, etc). I know some basic suite that are a couple hundred dollars to some very, very elaborate suits. I believe there is a fursuiter named Cryo who has a $14,000 suit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SG-6bYdCpzc (Go to 8:21).

14k more money then I've spent on myself in almost 18 years as one suit. What happens when someone does rip the tail off.

Well than you would have sew it back on, but a lot of suits have tails attached to a belt that you wear under the suit.
