my first fursuit!

i know only the tail of this is a softie, but i just have to share this project thats been keeping me from making small cute stuffed toys !
the head is a foam sculpture and the body is a bit of dress making - im completely self taught so it was quite the challenge.
one thing i can take from it is perhaps to use darts more, i make softies by mostly sewing flat shapes together, and darts make lovely organic curves, there are many on this costume head ...
i worked from the clients drawings and ideas and photos of real mice to make this male 'fursona'
