I'm posting some detail pics of the otter costume I'll be wearing at MFF this year. It doesn't have a name yet, I'll figure that out closer to MFF itself. But I just finished it, and I wanted to get some pics up to show off the handiwork.
So here's the first pic of the costume in full context. The otter doesn't have a name yet, I'm still thinking on that. But I think this is pretty much the "final look" for MFF.
The tail, hand paws/sleeves and ears are hand sewn by myself. I also did the paracord weaving on the hat band, as well as the bracelets and the water bottle holder you see here.
the face piece is by NorthFur fx (www.Northfur.ca), I got it last year but haven't really done anything with it 'till now. the face piece is attached to a spandex hood, so no gluing for a change. at the con I'll be doign makeup with this, I just did this very quickly to show the costume more than anything else.
And the clothing is just my stuff, really. I'm considering boots instead of the hiking shoes, but the hiking shoes are more comfortable for me, so they may win out.
