Fursuiting is fun, and many of ya'll is cheap/poor. Totes understanding of this fact, so why don't we all gather and make our own fursuits - "crafting orgy" style.
o You will all need to buy your own materials. I have basic crafting supplies available (Hot glue, foam sheets, needles, thread), but I can't afford to buy the $100+ it costs to make a suit for you.
o The crafting room in question has a t.v. and a DVD player. Bring a movie, ja?
o If I host this, it's going to be an all day - into the next morning type of deal. Come and go as your schedule commands. May turn into a two-day nightmare. :D
o The entire process will be stretched over several days. Some may not apply to you. You're still free to pop in. C:
Day 1 - Planning, ref-sheeting, general design work.
Day 2 - Foamwork, body padding, material pricing.
(There will be at least a month's gap between day 2 and day 3 so that materials can be gathered/shipped. :3 )
Day 3 - Pattern making. Oh yes. Duct-tape.
Day 4 - Heads, hands, and feet.
Day 5 - Tails and body suits.
Day 1 requirements:
o Reference or at least a good mental concept of your character.
o Anyone feeling artistic should bring their tools. :D
o We do have wi-fi~
We will be taking sexy webcam pictures of everyone standing against a white sheet. It'll give everyone a good idea of what they'll look like inside the finished costume and where we need to pad things, if at all. c: The first day is pretty much just a warm-up for the rest of these meet-ups so Henrie can de-bug her hosting process. Bringing over food or money for pizza is highly encouraged, as I will (find a fox/otter/dragon) who will love you long time. :D
o Why are you doing this?
Enough people have come up and told me "I want a fursuit, but don't know where to start." Well, start HERE. lol
o Do I need to bring supplies?
Today, no. Unless you want to come over and work on a project that you've already gotten started, no supplies needed.
o When is "Day 2"?
After Day 1, sillies. It will be posted up here, promise. This is my first event, so I want to feel out this "hosting" thing first. ^_^;
Oppa Potluck style! Bring something in, or chip-in towards pizza. Both viable options. C:
I'm gonna be "that guy" and say no alcohol. Sorry guys. x'D I will have soda, though.
