Fox Fursuit Head- Finished!

More or less, anyway! I still need to add a magnet closure to the neck and secure the eyes a little better since hot glue doesn't really stick to the vinyl eyelids, whoops~ but he's pretty much camera-ready and totally wearable! This will be part of a half or 3/4 suit including hand and feet paws, arm sleeves, fur 'pants' and a big ole poofy tail. I'll post plenty of pics of the finished suit when it's all done, but I wanted to go ahead and post the head now since it's been a loooooong time coming.

While there are things I would do differently next time I'm very happy with this as my first real attempt at a fursuit head. He's intended as a partial and sized accordingly (no giant bobblehead), the blind spot between the eyes is almost nonexistant, and ventilation is amazing. I look forward to wearing this guy when it's not stupid hot outside!

Mr. Fox needs a name. I'm open to suggestions~

    Very nice for a first! Did you have previous sewing/ crafting experience?

      I can sew, and I can sculpt (I've made wearable animal masks before out of papier-mache) but this is my first time working with foam.

    Looks excellent for a first attempt! Any idea what kind of suit project you'll tackle next?

    This is a really lovely head! I really like the choice of vinyl for the eyelids- it adds a great textural contrast. C:

        Thank you! I would love to do a similar suit for my mongoose fursona (and a king vulture partial has been a pipe dream for a few years now) but I think I'll just focus on enjoying this guy for a while, because holy crap this has been so much work x_x
