RE: How much fur?
Being in this region's climate? I'd suggest going for "minimal" enough to provide the effect, but not too excessive to reduce body heat problems :/

RE: How much fur?
Full suits go for usually $1,200 or more when made by a skilled tailor.
Unless you are talking about the materials then I am not so sure.

RE: How much fur?
But its for only one short visit or a long stay there?
Even with the thinnest amount of fur, its already more than enough to keep warm even in Alaska, especially when you'll be actively moving and jumping about in the suit.
Keeping the fur to a minimum would also help in the suit's long term storage as it reduces problems with moisture/humidity damage that is all the prevalent in our climate.

RE: How much fur?
from what i hear:

fullsuit:
2-3m main colour
1-2m sub colour
1m misc colour

halfsuit:
1-2m main colour

+

1m sub colour
1m misc

or

2m sub

just random statistics that i once saw, so good luck with it :3

and do not worry about the heat or lack of it, it is not relevant to how much fur you use (unless you layer fur upon fur for no reason.)

Fursuiter, fox, friendly, freaky,

so why isn't my name "Fee" but "Vee"?

must be cause i can't think of words that start with V

RE: How much fur?
Alamak I somehow managed to miss this thread.
Well, I don't know how Vee did the calculations for his own suit, cause I pretty much didn't do much (if any) for mine.

I went and bought some fur (which was on sale) from Spotlight in Plaza Singapura that was 2m by 1m for black (primary colour) and 1m by 1m for white (secondary colour). I think I went back later and bought some more black, about 1m by 1m. And I got some white fur that Vee had remaining later, I think also 1m by 1m. Then I just went on from there.

Come closer, I don't bite....sometimes...(RAWR!)

RE: How much fur?
Hi there

I am about 175 cm, from my experience for the body suit It took about

4m X 1m of fur for the main colour (more than 70% of total pattern)
2m x 1m of fur for the secondary colour (between 30%-40% of total pattern)
1m x 1m of fur for the tertiary colour ( less than 10% of total pattern)

It took so much because you need to take into account the "natural" direction of the fur when you cut your suit pattern
have a nice try ^^
I have just returned from UK, from my experience it was only cold during autumn, winter and spring. In summer it is just as hot as equatorial countries
