fursuit materials/techniques
um... anyone here happens to sell some good stuff to make a fursuit?
namely foam for me to carve my head (ok, this sounds wrong).

i kinda know where to get fun fur but not the foam.
i tried using wires for the head but it turned out horrible.

please note this only applies to places in singapore. i'm not gonna go overseas just to get it.

fursuit making tips n examples greatly welcomed.

info on places to get materials also accepted

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

There's a certain grade of foam needed for fursuit heads correct? I remember the standard upholstery foam is a big no no.

I gotta ask a few of the other local furs to see if they got an idea. I think Geli might know the best place to get them, he's very resourceful. XD

Asked Gelidien, and he's suggesting some of the blue foam at Art Friend might be enough to do the trick for standard fursuit head foam.

RE: fursuit materials/techniques
blue foam from art friend is painful and NOT for fursuit heads.
what you need is sponge-like foam. the harder the better, but it MUST be sponge. not the hard stuff.

I think yuo can use the hard stuff for the muzzle and stuff like that (mine is rock solid), but need to find the sponge like foam for other places.

Back to square one search. XD

It is annoying that I have easy access to different types of foam in Indonesia but have no way to transport them over to Singapore. Frown
