Opening of Fursuit Commissions

on 16 December 2013 at 12:43:05 MST

As some of you know I have been a fursuit maker now for the better part of 24 years.

Because Holidays were rough for me being in retail I closed commissions back in September. I am now Re-Opening commissions and will take on 2 or 3 full builds and spot section builds as work projection allows.

Costs will depend on complexity, materials, and time-frame.

Let it be known, I will not use old materials or second rate materials. I use only NEW materials such as new foam, new fur (Monteray Mills quality or better) and all stitching is warrantied for life. If a stitching busts from normal use or a glue spot comes undone (rare) I will repair it no charge, and if I'm at the same convention I will do them on site.

Some basic examples:

2 color generic fox (Full suit build) starts at $1500 and takes up to 3 months (AFTER materials arrive)

2 Color partial fox (head, hands, feet, and tail) start at $700 and takes about 3 months (After materials arrive)

2 color generic fox (Head Only) range between $500-$800 (depends on design complexity) takes about 30 days.

All job quotes may vary on price. Also I do not work to a set finish date so if your in a rush for something don't demand by specific dates. I work a full-time job, and work comes first. All my off work time I do devote to my commissions. Believe me I want you to have your commission as bad as you do. So I will work on it every chance life allows me to.

If you request a quote please include the following information:

  • Detailed artworks of what your fursona looks like - ALL ANGLES OF IT PLEASE. A profile sheet is best.
  • How tall you are
  • How heavy you are (Girls .. I won't tell anyone ;) )
  • Any features you want in it, IE glowing eyes, follow me effect, cooling fans, sound systems, etc... Glowing claws..
  • What type of activities you plan to do with it (Any and all please - Your details are not shared with anyone)
  • Special features in the fursuit (Such as hide-away-pockets for storing keys, phones, etc...)
  • Types of feet or effects in the suit (IE foot paw pads or a full around realistic looking foot)

Be as detailed in what you are wanting so I can get an idea of the amount of time I am looking at investing in the project so your not waiting forever.

Beyond this, I think we can ask questions between each other :)

Types of builds I can do:

  • Full foam with mesh frame (most popular)
  • FormFast (is a hard plastic) these are the most expensive heads and can get very costly
  • Balaclava heads (pull over cowl like with foam - These are best for moving jaws)
  • Resin cast finishing.

Species I specialize in:

  • Foxes
  • Felines
  • Rabbits
  • Wolves

Species I have not done many of but would like to make:

  • Raccoons
  • Custom Unique (Like telephone is)

Species I don't do well at:

  • Dragons
