Ignore the cruddy picture quality of my stupid camera *fails*
I think this suit turned out very nice if I must say so myself, for my first time doing a raccoon at least. ^^ I do regret that the moving jaw had some issues. It used to work perfectly fine, in fact I'd say it was one of the best moving jaws I've ever done, but once I furred it, even though I purposefully furred it to allow as much motion as possible, it just doesn't move very well anymore. I'm starting to think that there just isn't a way to do good moving jaws with foam bases. Or if there is I have yet to discover it.
Here are some of the features:
-3D follow-you eyes (great vision)
-(somewhat) moving jaw (opens very well)
-very good ventilation
-tight-fitted neck (invisible zipper in back)
-hair poof made from fancy-shmancy synthetic hair
-3ft long, super fluffy tail!

suit construction and pictures by me!
I use the elastic and balaclava method, works very nicely for me. Never had a problem. Which method do you use?
I use a sort of all foam method my friend came up with that she calls the "welder mask" method. It's almost like building on a balaclava except it's with foam. I'm not explaining it very well.
I have yet to come up with a good moving jaw though. For this and others I've done I hinge the sides with posterboard on rivulets then pull it so that it opens and closes with elastic hair ties. It works, but it's needs finessing.
you are amazing!!!
