Silly-Sally Fursuit Fun by tavington Silly-Sally Fursuit Fun by tavington
Yeah, stupid title I know!

But, I have all my cosplay parts for Sally now, so I had a little play around with everything. :giggle:
Thanks to my mama for the photos! :heart:

I was boiling in this thing...after 10 minutes!

Need to tweak Nicole so's she stays put on my boot, but other than that, I think that's it!
Voila! Enjoy!

What did you use for the hair and how did you get it to stay on? I'm working on a Sally plushie and her hair is what's probably going be be giving me the most trouble.

It's all made from fur. There are three shades I used here for Sally. Underneath is built up using craft foam and papier mache

I think I might have to take that approach as well. I've seen someone make a plushie or doll of her and have it hair, but it was a "bob" cut. I'm more concerned with the plushie coming out looking like Sally from SatAm than her hair being brushable or anything. I might just go ahead and do the same thing you did. Do you have any patterns you don't mind sharing? I kinda just made my own for her face and when I'm all done, I'm probably going to offer the full pattern for free.

I'm sorry I don't have any patterns I can share really. I used a kigu pattern and made it to fit my body, with a zipper at the back.
The head was built up and carved with a bread knife. I just took a bunch of screenshots and worked with those.

wow what a cool costume. i wish i knew how to make costumes like that. if i did, i'd make a cartoon beetlejuice costume. i know how to make the body and gloves but not the feet or mask. :)

It's the first time I've ever made a fursuit costume so I have very little experience with them. I would do some more, but I am losing interest in cosplay, sadly.

oh i see. yeah for me it's the mask. i don't know how to make the mask. i own a beetlejuice costume so if i knew how to make the mask. then that would be cool. yeah, i can always go on youtube and see if there are any how to videos on making a mask. that's the way i learnd how to make a hand puppet of beetlejuice. :)

Awesome Sally Acorn cosplay suit is indeed awesome! =D

Say have you thought about putting a cheap RadioShack computer fan in one of Sally's ears and stick a small 9volt battery to it to keep you cool in there? ^ ^

Although I'm not a fur suiter myself, I have heard of others who use those tiny computer fans in their suits to keep the heat in check. They say a small squarish 9volt battery, the kind that used to be common for portable transistor radios... is enough to power the comp-fan and ventilate the fur mask. I questioned google and ask.com about that, thinking the computer fan needs more juice to run but indeed, a 9volt batt is enough to make it go. It's also small enough to put in the ear or whereever on your mask so you can wear it for longer without baking in there. Just thought I'd share what I've learned with you. ^w^

Thank you so much for the tips! I might look into it if I wear Sally again.
I am wanting to pass her onto a new owner this year (i.e. sell her) she's done 4 events now and I'd like to try and make something new next year. If I do another suit though, I will think about adding a fan in it. :D

Ah, yes. It's pretty much impossible not to get hot in anything with fur...which is why I've been holding back on finishing my fursuit head for a while. XD

I wore it for an event for about an hour and I did get pretty hot in it, so how I will fare all day I haven't a clue!

Well I was wearing pretty warm clothes underneath!
Cooling vests over here are sooooo expensive it's unbelievable.
I think I will probably do without. I have very thin clothes I can wear underneath though
Thanks for your comments! I really appreciate it! And I do read them all I swear! Even though it takes me ages to reply!

I remember this from the SMS board. I'm not into cosplay myself, but it impresses me what fans can put together (I once saw a few people as Tetris blocks at an Anime con. They lined themselves up and everything).

As far as SatAM cosplay goes, this is the first I've seen. Looks pretty good, the suit, Nicole, everything came out nicely.

Have fun at the con, and look forward to what you have in store down the road.

niceee! how much did it cost to make that, or get it? (Fursuit)
Reply
:icontavington:
tavington Featured By Owner May 7, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you! It cost almost $180 to make, (materials, not counting labour), over a period of 1-2 months.
I started it way before Christmas and left it for a while, as it got a bit too overwhelming, but I'm glad I had the patience and drive to pick the project up again and finish it!

Hafu-Inuyasha Featured By Owner May 12, 2010
About $180 to make huh? I suppose that isn't too bad, than again to put something like this together, I probably best just get someone with skills help me... haha

I want to make a Sonic one!!!

1-2 months long huh? That's a lot of work, but to be honest so worth it! I know if I got a Sonic FurSuit i would wear it most of winter HAHAH!! it would be so cool i can see it...

How hard was it overall to put together?
Reply
:icontavington:
tavington Featured By Owner May 13, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
Yes it was pretty difficult, seems as I've never done anything on this scale ever before.
This is my first attempt at a fursuit as well, and I have a half one planned for this year or next, for some other UK events.

I read up a lot about it before I started and did sketches and researched properly. Otherwise I think I would have fallen flat on my face!

Hafu-Inuyasha Featured By Owner May 14, 2010
Well from my point of view, which btw I can only do a alright job of sewing, its a huge project, and its hella hard, so if this was your first attempt i have nothing but props for you, you did a really awesome job, if you were here where i live i would have asked you to help me out! haha
That's how much of a good job i think you did...

I think regardless of how hard of a job it is to put together, it's well worth it!
I live in a huge city, and while summers are great here, they don't last as long as the winters, and I'm very aware that FurSuits are really warm to wear, I would so get a huge kick out of wearing it out all the time, and seeing people look over, possibly even ask for pictures!

Was the pieces and materials to put it together hard to find?
Or where the materials easy to collect for the whole suit?
Reply
:icontavington:
tavington Featured By Owner May 23, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
The hardest part of my materials to get was actually the red fur, but I got it eventually.
The work involved on the head was probably the most difficult and time consuming part, I think.

:iconhafu-inuyasha:
Hafu-Inuyasha Featured By Owner May 23, 2010
Yeah I would imagine the head to be the most difficult part to make...

I wonder if I could find the parts for Sonic's shiny shoe material...

I think I'll keep a note of you on DA, It would be cool to get tips for when I need it!

I am constantly amazed at all the fan-fur-suits I see these days . . . and this is a duzy!

You know . . . when you're done with it . . . give it a little tayloring, add several pounds of stuffing, and you'll have yourself one fabulous, lifesize Sally plushie to enjoy!
