Make ALL of the Fursuits (Part 1)

  • to

  • No location was chosen

  • 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

    ______________________________________________________

    FAQ!~

    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.  ^_^;

    o Food?
    Oppa Potluck style!  Bring something in, or chip-in towards pizza.  Both viable options.  C:

    o Drinks?
    I'm gonna be "that guy" and say no alcohol.  Sorry guys.  x'D  I will have soda, though.

    I've messaged Henrie to ask for an update.

  • Miss K.

    I really want to go, seeing as I have some decent supplies, I'm willing to share foods/ said supplies and pick things up really fast. I just hate having to travel from Everett to a place I've never been via bus. :(

    October 25, 2012

    • Sharako

      I am with ya there Max. I can offer car from Everett to some where tho. I heard rumors of Tacoma somewhere, but where in Tacoma, no clue.

      January 9, 2013

    • Mix

      I thought it was in tacoma originally?

      January 9, 2013

    Is this still a go?

  • Cisco

    I have been holding into a few yards of fur for a long time. Hopefully I can put it to good use!

    whats the projected cost of the supply's we need for first day ?

    November 4, 2012

    • J-4

      Sounds like Day 1 is mostly planning & learning the logistics of running craft sessions.

      November 11, 2012

    • aaron (ursa m.

      sweet thanks for the info, im kinda looking forward to making my own suit so the reason i ask

    • David

      Twice, in point of fact.

      November 2, 2012

  • Henrie

    Hey guys, really happy for all of the support and enthusiasm, but I need to push the date back. Availability of the craft dungeon in question has become a concern.

    Will update when things are straightened out!

    October 30, 2012

    • StealthSneak1

      At least I get more time to plan this into my schedule. I'll definitely look into this

      October 30, 2012

    • Mortuest

      Do you need a location to host it at? If you can find a good place, I may be able to help out with it.

      October 31, 2012

  • Mortuest

    Sad face :( I was hoping to meet friends this weekend.

    October 30, 2012

      First day you don't need supplies, so come and have fun! :)

      October 28, 2012

  • Mortuest

    I can do day 1 at least for the first half. I need help planning what I need.

  • Maeve 'Mae' A.

    Do you have a limit of how many people can go? I'm still totally new to all of these events... id like to get myself closer in the community. And do you have a limit of how young someone can be?

    October 25, 2012

    • Maeve 'Mae' A.

      Thanks! :)

      October 26, 2012

    • Henrie

      Usually an age limit, I'm not doing alcohol so furs of all ages are allowed. I don't expect things to get uber-crowded, but if they do I'll creatively re-disperse people. xD (I think the capacity of the basement is... 20?)

      October 26, 2012

  • Madcows

    I have the artistic abilities of a blind man :(

    October 24, 2012

    • Henrie

      Sneak on over anyway, that's why I have gathered the furries. :P If you have a costume idea and need to get the artistic part done, this really is the day to come! :D

      October 25, 2012

    • Maeve 'Mae' A.

      If I can make it I can try and do a bit of doodling for you c: if I can't make it you can shoot me a msg and I can try from out here :O

    I'll be unavailable most of Saturday morning; would it be alright to drop in late Saturday afternoon/evening or Sunday morning?

    October 23, 2012

    • Henrie

      I will be doing this Sunday as well, so you're in the clear. ^_^

      October 25, 2012

  • Ryusuke G.

    definately wanna be appart of this. got a few ideas in my head and need to update my current suit.

    October 21, 2012

    • Henrie

      Sounds great! We'll fine tune some of the ideas while you're here!

      October 25, 2012

  • Amarok

    Do you have to bring supplies I would bring food or moneys for food, I just wish to watch and see what its all about if that's ok

    October 18, 2012

    • Henrie

      This first day is mostly meant for people who don't even know where to start, though I welcome anyone who has a project currently to come over. I have basic supplies (Hotglue, foam, needles, thread, pins) but you're on your own for things like fur. x'D

      Food-wise, you can bring something in for potluck or chip in for pizza if you like. C: Not required, but def appreciated!

    It says that it can't find it

    October 17, 2012

    Like cross streets

    October 15, 2012

    • Henrie

      It's a house, I'll have a sign posted on the front door, because technically we're in the basement. Cross streets are S 25th st and Ainsworth-ish. Sprague is the nearest 'main street' I can think of.

      October 16, 2012

    • Henrie

      The Google Map that is opened by Meetup is entirely accurate. C:

    Anything we should pick up before day 1?

    October 5, 2012

    • Henrie

      Not really. Bring a snack and a movie if you like. Just think long and hard about your character. Day 1 goes to planning! :D

      October 5, 2012

  • chelsia

    hmmmmmm I think imma try to make this!

    October 5, 2012

  • chaoswolf

    I would love to make it, though I'm out in Lynnwood and would need a ride. I'm a definite maybe. Henrie -- I iz on skype and would love to talk to you about it.

    October 2, 2012

    • Whiskey Tango F.

      I am also out in Lynnwood, maybe we can work something out.

      October 5, 2012

  • Isak

    This sounds like fun! I think I'm in for sure. :) I've been wanting to play around with making my own for a while now. Woo!

    October 4, 2012

  • Vegafox

    I would love to attend this, ive had an intrest in suiting for a while. sadly i have no clue on how to sew, so i dont think id get much out of this

    October 3, 2012

    • Henrie

      This is a good way to learn how. In fact, that's why I posted it. Feel free to come over and learn you something! :D

      October 4, 2012

  • Whiskey Tango F.

    Being relatively new to the Furry scene, I would really like to come. and get some help. I have a partial, but I am not really happy with how it looks. My mother was a seamstress and taught me how to sew and make patterns. so barring something coming up, I'm all for doing this.

    I would LOVE this!! I could use the motivation and company. :D Maybe this should be a Fri-Sat type of event? Wow, I'm crazy excited. :D

    October 2, 2012

    • Henrie

      EXACTLY! lol Going Sat-Sun might be closer to what happens, but we'll see how everything falls. c:
