A couple pairs of feet I finished up earlier today :)
They are my “use your own shoe” style. The cream and brown feet are for a rabbit, and have rubber “parade soles” for outdoor use. The black ones have a furred sole, with custom cast latex pawpads.
I made a short video showing how these work: http://youtu.be/Z3CF3hmVFFU
Also, I made some panda ears I forgot to show earlier! Pretty simple, but fluffy and cute.
Some pretty radical paws with stripey pawpads. :D
For a customer! Love the design a lot.
So I marathoned six pairs of feet this week (the seventh was done earlier, it’s the one with the yellowed foam)- I used two huge handfuls of glue sticks, killed my hot glue gun*, used up four chair pads’s worth of foam, and spent three work days getting everything sewn, cut out, glued, and shaped.
But now I don’t have to make any more for a little while. :D
I have two sizes, a large size and a small size.
The large size are going to open and close in back with velcro. The idea is that you can slip a pair of walking shoes inside and remove them when you’re done. They’re a good size for fullsuits, and because you use your own shoes, they can be pretty comfy!
The small size is great for partial suits or any costume where you want a daintier looking foot. You slip your foot in, no shoes, it’s kind of like wearing slippers!
I have two pairs of the small-size feet and one pair of the large size feet available for “adoption”- a furred, finished pair is $200. Claws add $50 to the price, pawpads add $50 (your choice of latex or flat fabric).
Large feet look like this when finished: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/9060223/
Small feet look like this: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/9666739/
If you wish to claim any of these feet, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org :D Thanks~
*Long boring story about the glue gun… I noticed it was time to replace it a while ago, there’s all this blackened area around the nozzle and it’s been with me for quite a while (probably longer than was intended by the manufacturer). I’ve been reading horror stories about craft glue guns exploding, so I decided to replace it. Bought a new one that looked really good and… it doesn’t work. :P Squeezed out a couple of drops of glue and that was it, I tried everything with that P.O.S.
Now I just want to stop playing around with craft hot glue guns and move up to industrial, but the reason I haven’t all this time is that I bought this 25 lb box of hot glue sticks years ago and they won’t fit an industrial gun. Don’t wanna waste glue!
Well, finally, the box is finally almost empty but I think my glue gun’s really had it this time… glue is starting to seep out of where the trigger mechanism is. x_x Poor glue gun! We almost made it through the box of glue sticks! Oh well. Tis time to retire it! RIP my faithful glue gun.
The gray fox didn’t sell like I had hoped, so I’ll be adjusting a couple things with the head that were troublesome, maybe make a pair of feet, and try auctioning it off again.
In the meantime, I am entertaining private offers! There are only a precious few things I am looking for in a trade, so mainly I am looking for money. Drop me a line at email@example.com if you’re interested, thanks! My minimum price I’d accept is $650.
