my first fursuit .... here he is!


although today it is snowing and slushy, and my todders are pressed to the windows, yesterday was fresh and sunny, just the right kind of weather for taking pics of the finished mouse fursuit... finished that is, apart fromt a set of whiskers ...but i did make the photo deadline and will also make the friday one for words and pictures sent to Rat and Mouse magazine ... phew !
does this make me an official fursuiter?
should i accept more commissions?
have you enjoyed following the proggress of this huge mouse?
i think i have, as a soft-toy maker i have certainly picked up lots of new skills and improved my sewing...

Wow, he looks amazing! You did a super job with that. I admit, the face looked pretty creepy before you added the fur, but now it actually looks kind of cute. :D

Hey, if you enjoyed making the suit, then go for it and take on more commissions! Your work is high quality, the final results are always great, and you put hard work and love into each project you take on. Who wouldn't want to commission you?! :)

Commissions are a good idea, but please be aware that I think you would be very quickly over-subscribed.

With quality of work like that, you could more-or-less name your price. I think people would pay. The fursuit community seems to be flush with cash when it comes to having costumes made.

The only other question for you is whether you have sufficient time to devote to fursuit making. If you have a regular day job, then taking in commissions will probably be a non-starter.
