Realistic nashoba wolf fursuit-costuming thingers by Nashoba-Hostina Realistic nashoba wolf fursuit-costuming thingers by Nashoba-Hostina
There’s some tweaking to do still… but here’s my new Nashoba werewolf ‘partial.’ I’ve done three ‘full suits,’ and, quite frankly, I’m so tired of sweating my brains out in my costumes… I now finally have one that’s comfortable!

The only thing I didn't make from scratch was the tail, as it's a fox tail from my local renfaire, which I stained with different inks. The rest I did myself, down to wireing the LEDS. Supplies purchased from Hobby Lobby, Joanne fabrics, Hancock Fabrics, Michael's, and Radio shack. Materials used include: Buckram, faux fur, bouncy balls, floral wire, fun foam, high density foam, spectrum inks, sharpies, paper mache (for the initial sculpt) pleather, felt, sculpey, model magic, fabric paint, green LEDs, 2 AA battery pack, canvas, elmer's glue, hot glue, acrylic paint, and dumb luck.

Good shots of this will come later!

This is soooo fucking cool! I want a fursuit for LARP myself, but I am not very good with this kind of stuff.. I'm afraid it would look butt-ugly, so I'm looking around for someone who can make a realistic looking wolf :)

Okay... If i ever see this suit at a convention... I am TOTALLY gonna come shake your han- er... paw.
Seriously though this looks amazing, you've really captured your character in that outfit :)

Paw, hand, they're analogous structures, so, same thing, right? XD Though, odds are, this won't get a whole lot of action. I can't afford to go to cons all that often usually.

*Blush* Thank you very much!

Uh oh. No going back now. Now everyone knows...

...you're a furry! :o

Just kidding. =P Whether you are or aren't makes no difference to me. Just don't see many non-furs post partial fursuits. In fact, I'm not sure I know of any...

I'm a monster-maker. Dinosaurs, lions, harpies, werewolves... it's all fair game.

Regardless, furry, not furry, frankly, a lable only matters based upon context, and unless it would imply something negative given whatever situation it's brought up in, I see nothing wrong with it.

Good point. And I still think one can enjoy something without being part of its fandom. In many cases, that can be a good thing.

Nashoba if you keep this up you are gonna have so many people asking you to do these as commissions! I know I would if I had the money.

I don't know if I could take commissions for these... My local fur choices aren't very good, and the liability of doing costumes for folks is downright scary. You're so kind to say so though, thank you!

You got these furs from a local shop? o.-.o Wow lucky wish I had one with that kind of fur around here. I'd have to order online. x.-.x

Well, one that's about 45 minutes away. They carry fur now and again, so it's hit and miss and I had to modify these with paint and dye and such. Some of the fur is scrap left over from my first costume, and I haven't seen it again since. I've never ordered fur online before... seems like it'd be hard.

Had to get many a samples. Did finally find the kind I like though. Nice, soft and feathery. Also it don't majorly shed, and the backing is real strong.

Thank you so much! The light is just produced by a couple of green LEDs, which are actually super simple to wire up, should you ever have the inclination to do anything of the sort yourself.

Thanks again!
