I don't really take commissions...I basically just make stuff then sell it. I mainly use real animal faces/parts so specific things are hard to come by. I'd LOVE to make a mountain goat costume but unfortunately Mountain Goats are expensive! Almost $600 for just a raw face.
Next time I really need to get more pictures taken of me and children.... how I wish I had gotten one of the kid who posed picking my nose, and when his momma took the shot I bit him. (not hard though... as hard as two cabinet springs can pinch)
Alright, well for Father's Day I went to my dad's and we butchered a pig. I wanted the skull, so I cleaned it as best as possible, boiled it to get the rest of the stuff off, then tried to clean it. I couldn't get the veins and what not out of the holes in the skull. So I have no idea if I did something wrong or if there is a better way to do this. I don't want to mess it up again. I also didn't have time to put it on an ant hill.
Oh! You did nothing wrong. Pig skulls are generally hard to work with. When boiling, you may want to use a little Arm and Hammer Washing soda (it will jellify the meat and it washes off really well) To get the gunk out of the nose and various tendon holes, you may need compressed air to jet through and blow those out. If not, just boil in Washing soda and it'll all just slough off with pressurized water from the sink.
wow, that's better than most all fursuits I've seen..
By the way.. in my ideas for a fursuit (I've been thinking about it long and hard..) I came up with the idea to stitch small plastic tubing up and down the interior of the suit, and use a souped up computer water cooling system to keep me cool. If you try it, let me know how it turns out! I've not had the money to try a single thing.
Now all we need to do is get 'ya digitigrade feetses! (I have a friend who has a trick to those too..)
