Earlier this year, I volunteered to create one of the raffle prizes for one of the FuckYeahFursuiting blog’s charity drives (not this current one that’s going on, the one prior), and here is the finished result. :) I didn’t like my original design, it just wasn’t coming out right, so I enlisted the amazing Synchra for her help designing a totally new character (the third image). :)
Made a few minor mods to the design as I worked on it, pretty happy with the outcome! This possie’s owner seems pretty happy too, yay!
This cute toony scruff of an opossum has soft, spotty, minky ears, a big shiny pink nose, funny teeth, and a wide area of vision out the eyes. This is the fifth opossum I’ve made, and I’ll be working on the sixth later this month and next. ;) I like ‘em, what can I say?

Done, here’s a sneak peek. Finished pics will be on Tumblr, FA, DA, Weasyl, etc later. #fursuit #opossum
Pinning and double-checking… Looks pretty good to me. #fursuit
Not much left to do! #fursuit #opossum
Gluing in the top row of teeth, gotta let that sit.
I’ll go with these eyes. #fursuit #opossum
Can you help me?? I need help making a wolf fursuit head and i'm having trouble figuring out how to make base, then covering it with fur.
Sorry I forgot to answer your question! You caught me right before a convention, so I was super overworked and rushing to pack things.
Anytime people ask me a fursuit building question, I will always point them to Fursuit LJ. It’s been around for quite a little time now, and there are hundreds of awesome guides, tutorials, photo sets, advice posts, etc on anything and everything having to do with making animal costumes. There are a number of ways to make a headbase- with some experimentation, I’m sure you’ll figure out the way you like to work best.
As for furring, I actually did make a tutorial about that: http://lobitaworks.tumblr.com/post/69108356120/make-a-tutorial-on-furring-a-head-hope-its
Good luck, happy crafting!
Workin’ more on this possie head… headfur is sewn together, just need to sew up the ear fabric and line the mouth, and I’ll be ready to start gluing stuff. More WIPs tomorrow, I’m sure!
Approximately one kajillion tails for sale!

All these tails except the Twilight Sparkle tail are approximately the same size and shape, the different furs and photo angles can make them look a bit different. These would work well for a wolf, a fox, a pony, a fluffy cat, whatever you want!
