Fur: What to do with it

26 posts in this topic

So I have this fur.

And it takes up a lot of room and space.

I've got basic sewing skills, and giving the pieces can (hand) sew a tail. Or probably anything.

Any suggestions on what to do with it?

Pick up an adjustable mannequin body, start making suits and money.

I don't think I've enough fur of a single type for a good suit. xD

That and I don't know how to make one, really. :(

If you can do a good stitch, all you need to do is follow a pattern, and adjust it for appropriate dimensions (most patterns will come with places you would adjust noted down, if they're worth anything.)

Also, partials are easy enough!

I've never had good luck understanding patterns. But... that WAS before my meds. I should look into that again, if there's any bodysuit and paw patterns :v

Why do you have so much fur? I don't even have that much and I make suits (I probably have more in yardage though) XD. I'd say make ear and tail sets. 

Also, what is that dark brown undercoat with light brown guard hair in the second photo. It's really pretty. 

Also, I hand sew all my costumes so it is super doable. If you don't already, learn the blanket stitch and ladder stitch.

The blanket stich is actually one I naturally developed. As for why do I have so much fur, its because I once had asperations of making a tail and a suit, as well as a "less than a yard" online fur sales. My output never quite matched my purchases.

I don't remember where I got the dark/light brown fur from. Probably one of the Los Angeles Fabric District locations.

Depends on which ones. I'm hesistant to sell the 'realistics' in the second picture, but the rest can be easily replaced (and the white/black in the realistics as well)

Go ahead and PM me with your offer. Depending on the offer and detailsI might go. And cry. A lot.

As a couple of other users have suggested, if you don't have enough to make a complete suit, then you could make tails. 

That fur looks very fluffy. :3

Toss it all on your bed and then roll around naked in it for a while.

Actually I think you can make a full body of it.

I made this suit with a yard of gray, quarter yard of white, half yard of royal blue, one yard of turquoise, and a yard of black.

Oh, I've got way more than that in the fabric. 

It's just. Time, energy, knowledge, space. :|

You can always sell what you have too to others if you are still unsure.

The stuff most are interested in is the stuff I want to keep cause pretty.

You can see my dilemma.

Aye. Just too many projects I want to do, not enough time or skill to do them all myself, nor enough money to hire someone to do them for me. xD
