Note: I removed the itemized pricing as it is subject to change due to inflation, minimum wage changes, and the cost of living. Itemized pricing will be emailed as part of the quote process.
I require 30% of the cost up front and this is not refundable.
After the 30% the rest can be done in installments over an 9 month period.
Check, Money order or Paypal. Customers outside the USA are required to use Paypal.
I can ship world wide, if your country can accept mail from the USA you can order from me.
Shipping is not included in the quote, an estimate is to be paid by the customer before the costume is sent.
For customers outside the united States - it is the customer's responsibility to research and know what sort of customs/import fees or taxes are involved with receiving an expensive item from the United States and plan accordingly. I am not responsible for this and am not obligated to lower my prices due to high customs fees.
Before ordering look through both my price list below and read all of the "ordering and Terms of Sale" page. Then you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am not open for cosplay/copyrighted commissions and will not make another Wolf-Link (so don't ask) The only cosplay I can do are generic or natural animals such as the canines from Wolf's Rain.
Please note the PET ALLERGY WARNING at the bottom of this page!
Discount body $
This is sewn once
If you do not plan to wear it for much more than a handful of events each year, and do not plan to be rough, then single sewn works just fine with no issues. I offer this discount to help those with lower budgets
Double sewn body $
This is the best option if you plan to use the costume a lot, and/or if you plan to be very active and rough. If all you plan to do is walk around and hang out in your costume then single sewn is fine.
Airbrushing and complex sewn markings cost extra.
Digigrade leg padding $
Makes your legs appear to be jointed like an animal
The padding is pillow stuffing held in place via a sewn in pockets. Stuffing is removable for washing.
Why the high extra cost? Digigrade legs almost double the time and effort that goes into creating the body.
Other padding $
hip padding, belly padding, muscle padding and feminine padding is done case by case.
Sewn markings are the biggest unlisted cost that could make the price you calculate here be higher than the one I give you. These are examples of what I consider complex sewn markings and what could add a significant amount to your quote.
NOTE: You cannot get just a body from me, bodysuits are only available as part of a fullsuit commission. If at a later time you choose to upgrade to a fullsuit you have to send back the parts I already made (at your own cost).
This has No bodysuit and is worn with clothes.
You can also order furry sleeves and leggings
$ single color
$ and up mutli color
$ single color
$ and up multi color
a 3/4 suit means half the body is clothing and the rest is either a furry shirt or furry pants.
Airbrushing, complex sewn markings, and body padding is extra.
Double sewn $
Add Digigrade legs $
The base price is $
Extra Features for Heads
Flat toony is free
$ for toony follow effect eyes. Vision is through the entire eye. These are round and tend to make the head size larger.
$ for realistic follow effect eyes, Vision is through mesh tear ducts. The blanks I paint are super high quality but very expensive hence the high cost
$ for realistic human style follow effect eyes. Vision out mesh tear ducts. The blanks I paint are expensive hence the high cost
*additional styles available, above are the most commonly used
Little front row off teeth and simple tongue is free
$ for a realistic mouth with tongue detail and a full set of teeth
$ for ears on springs so they wiggle. Note that this only works for ears with a narrow base such as a horse or rabbit..
$ for a jaw on a hinge. range of movement varies from case to case. This is a swinging hinge, it works via bumping your chin so no pressure is put on your face (unlike other hinge designs which open via your chin pushing it down) this does not voice sync perfectly but is perfect for silent expression.
$ for a fully articulated jaw. this does not work properly on everyone, and is fussy to put on and wear. It may need to be sent back to be put on a hinge. But when it does work properly it voice syncs perfectly and gets amazing results.
$ for realistic nose (simple toony is free
$ battery powered fan in mask (will not fit in all masks)
Do you wear glasses???
Horns, whiskers, antlers, huge or oddly shaped ears, scales, use of a wig or wefted hair, complex fur patters, unique nose shape, airbrushing, over-sized teeth, long or curved necks, and over sized heads cost extra and are priced case by case.
Masks made as a separate order for use with a quad (as in you make the rest) Start at a higher price because they have to be made differently
The fur of my heads is attached as a combination of sewn slip cover and industrial strength glue, glued areas are applied with extreme caution to assure a seamless and durable result.
NOTE: you cannot order just hands, they must be ordered along with a head, halfsuit, or a fullsuit.
$ for hands with no paw pads.
$ for paws with raised silicone hand pads
horse hoof hands $
cloven hoof hands $
Finger tip hoof hands $
Claws are resin and solid colored so even if they happen to chip or wear down there is no color difference
Note: you cannot order just feet, they must be ordered with a head, halfsuit, or a fullsuit.
Feet with no paw pads start at $ IF you send me shoes to work with. I love working with sent shoes as this insures a perfect fit. In most cases the shoe bottom is left exposed, this means the feet are as durable as the shoes they are made on. Black bottom shoes are best as the bottom will show, I also seal off the overhanging foam of the toes with black rubber.
Feet with horse hooves $
Feet with cloven hooves $
Feet with paw pads start at $. The paw pads are raised meaning the furred bottom does not come in direct contact with the ground so it does not get as dirty as quickly as some feet pad styles.
The pads are dense, firm silicone, they hold up fine on carpet and smooth surfaces but will slowly wear out if worn on the likes of concrete and asphalt.
Feet paw pads are super cute on toony suits and add that last touch to realistic suits but there are some downsides:
The bottoms will eventually show dirt, even if only worn inside (ever looked at your sock bottoms? That thin film of gray that never seems to wash off? That will happen) the lighter the fur and/or pad color the worse this is.
Feet pads also double the weight of the feet and may cause pressure points.
If you plan to be outdoors for more than a quick stroll, or wear the costume for more than 100 hours a year, or if your feet bottoms or pads are a pale color, or if you just plain do not care about how the bottom of your feet look, then I recommend the standard feet which leave the shoe sole exposed.
Claws are resin and solid colored so even if they chip or wear down there is no color difference
Quad suits start at $
Horses and Dragons (and some other species) cost more, almost all canines and felines will start at $
The $ includes: non jointed arm stilts with pawpads, head, feet with no paw pads, claws, removable body/digigrade padding, single sewn body suit, jaw that bobbles open and shut, realistic eyes, semi real mouth, real nose, and the tail. Anything else costs extra.
The arm stilts make your arms as long as your legs, are easy to balance with and put little strain on your wrists. One can even run and carry people while in a quadsuit
WARNING: Quadsuits are not easy to wear, put on, or transport. Dressing requires a helper and they require the help of a spotter. The more athletic you are the easier a quadsuit is to wear. The posture can be strenuous, vision tends to be very limited, they are hot and weigh about 20 pounds...but they sure do make a statement and bring a whole new level of "magic" to ones performance.
Quadsuits are NOT recommended for hot weather or people with back, arm, shoulder or neck problems.
Upgrade from non-jointed to jointed arm stilts $ extra
Joints move via gravity and body motion.
pros and cons:
You cannot run with joints because if the joint trips up and you land on it bent you will faceplant on the ground and likely snap the joint. Movement is a tad more tricky as you have to pay attention and be sure the leg is not bent when you bear weight on it, but comfort is the same. I would not recommended carrying a rider. There is always the potential for bodily harm present with jointed stilts.
Additional Quadsuit costs:
I do require a pair of shoes be sent in addition to a well fitted rock climbing helmet (we get ours at Sports Chalet for around $60)
So between the cost of the shoes and helmet expect to spend an additional $100
Prices vary too much for me to list.
Note I do not make ears on hats or headbands anymore.
I am not always open for tails, I take them when I have the time to spare, so just ask.
prices vary A LOT
please give me the size, feathered or bat style, backpack style or arm style, if you want "fingers" between webbing on bat wings (how many) veins, claws or airbrushing on your wings.
NOTE: wings like picture above are big and bulky and weigh 5-10pounds.
They are pain to wear, store, manipulate and transport, also shipping for them is expensive. Large wings are really awesome and are a true "wow factor" with a costume but please be sure you are prepared to deal with how inconvenient these wings can be.
I am no longer offer backpack style wings that move, they are difficult to make and own and have a tendency to wear out.
Wings cannot be ordered separate, they must be bought with at least a head.
I can do a limited amount of non-fursuit related costume work. I can do Alien and monster type costumes or anything remotely animal such as Sasquatch. I can also do what I can "organic robot" work.
I can also do "fake taxidermy" including fantasy animals
I do not do plushies, I do wire and paper mache and/or foam bases with glued on faux fur and other materials
If you are allergic to any animal LET ME KNOW
I keep a variety of pets. If you are mildly allergic (If all you get is a little sneezy) then I can be sure my pets do not come near your order, as well as vacuum the costume and use dander wipes before I send it. (I myself am allergic to rodents and am very allergic rabbits, so I understand allergy issues)
BUT If you are strongly allergic to cats, birds, or dogs and the slightest contamination can harm you then it's best to play it safe and buy from someone else.
Materials are stored in a pet free area but my work area and living space are one and the same. Cats and dogs frequently enter my work space so I know there is dander and fur in the room, and sometimes when I am not looking they mess with stuff I am working on. I also have birds and while they never touch my work every time they flap their wings it sends feathers and dander flying.
ALSO I like to do photos and videos with my animals as it makes things more interesting (namely if the costume looks like one of my animals) If the idea of holding/touching an animal while modeling the costume bothers you, even for non allergy reasons, please let me know.
I do my best to keep my pets off my costuming supplies, but I opened this box of fake fur and not even 5 seconds later CreamPuff is laying in it and had to be chased out!
