Fursuit choices help
« on: May 14, 2014, 09:52:21 pm »
So, theres this offer for a fursuit for material cost only, but I need some help with choices.
Resin or foam head?
Toony or realistic paws?
Rubber feet or the same stuff as hands?

anyone got examples or such to look at?

Foam head for light flexible comfort
Tony (opinion)
Rubber if you plan on going outside where the bottom of the foot could get ruined

Many premade resin bases work well for realistic, but foam is a hell of a lot less expensive lol. Resin can be made toony as well though.

Realistic is always so hit-and-miss, go for toony (though that's a personal opinion :P)

Rubber feet will last longer, though you could make fursuit "sandals" if you want cutesy feet to show off indoors!

I prefer foam heads only because they tend to look nicer? unless you're going for a super realistic style

toooony is super cute

rubber if you plan on going outside in them

either rubber or fursuit sandals

i prefer just going with rubber because the sandals can look really bad sometimes and ruined some pictures

Now, any tips for money? Ways for me to get some cash? I hve 170, minus 5 or 7 for an upcoming event, and it costs 280 or so. When I turn 16, I plan on getting a job, but limited cause I havnt even gotten a lerners ermit due to World History ap test. I plan on offering some Magic or Yugioh cards I dont use for extra cash. Any other tricks?

Do household chores for your parents and grandparents. Mow the lawn, clean bathrooms, wash dishes, whatever they'll pay you to do. It works great for me when I need some extra cash.

In that case, I'd say ask for more jobs (assuming they'll pay you more and there are more jobs). And selling some things you no longer want is a great idea.

No, 10's for all...
I'm trying to see if people are interested in buying some Magic/ mabey Yugioh cards I don't use. I run only certain decks.

Well, I kinda have a plan there. One final thing: what should I use for the hand paws?

I'm trying to see if people are interested in buying some Magic/ mabey Yugioh cards I don't use. I run only certain decks.

Few tips I can offer here
1) selling whole decks might he easier for some people, as they will only need to pay one lump sum
2) sell directly to the person, because the store will make you lose 50% of the value
3) if you have a UR modern storm deck, I'm willing to buy it directly.
4) pay attention to market trends and speculation o see if things will drop or rise.

I sell a ton of stuff on my city's unofficial "Buy And Sell" facebook page! I'd check if yours has one. Other sites like Kijiji and Craigslist are good for that too. Garage sales work too!

As for the hand paws, make them out of fur? Just trace a paper outline of your hand, cut it out of fur twice, and sew it together.
