How to Machine Sew a Zipper
This is my method of installing a zipper into a fursuit bodysuit! I use a sewing machine to do this! I try to work smarter, not harder, by planning my zipper placement, and if at all possible I sew it in before the entire body is assembled! With a small amount of pattern planning (I sew up a test pattern from sheets/muslin before I make the final from fur) I know where the zipper will go! Throughout the tutorial I will also give advice on how to replace zippers in finished costumes as well.
Aligning markings, a picture guide!
Have you ever had a challenge getting your markings to line up properly when sewing your fursuit? Something that was supposed to be a straight line ends up being a zigzag because the fabric slipped… Its a common issue and happens to the best of us, but it doesn’t have to! Here’s a guide with tips on aligning those markings and get straight markings and hidden seams every time!
Going to try this.
Building a Fursuit Head with Foam
This is one of my favorite methods of creating a mask, there are many other techniques to try, but this is how I create mine. Half inch thickness foam is used to build your animal character by folding, curving, and layering the foam pieces.
Creating a Digitigrade illusion for your character’s legs
So you want your character to have the illusion of digitigrade locomotion, so it appears to be walking on its toes? This tutorial is an advanced tutorial and it assumes that you know a little bit on how to sew, and that you know how to carve and attach foam, and apply fur. It is also full of useful tips for creating a costume with padding, but primarily shows creating an animal shape that looks like it is walking on its toes. Please be aware costumes with padding can be HOT to wear and a little more difficult to move around in.
Doing this soon.

And men are good at it because we always know we will fit it in when you tell us it won’t :D

A random woman comes up to me out of the blue to be spiteful. Woman: damn you’re pale. Me: damn you’re ugly.
