I'd really like to own a partial one. They're cheaper and I wouldn't have to worry quite so much about heatstroke. Problem is, I'm not that great an artist so providing a company with a reference sheet may be difficult. My goal is to save up for one and get one before May 2019 so I can wear it to Furlandia in Portland (I don't live there but I want to fly out there for the convention and to see my stepfamily.)

I'm currently in Portland for Christmas but I doubt I'll have time to get a fursuit (even a partial) before May 2018 as I'm also planning a trip to Omaha, Nebraska (possibly July/August 2018) to visit old nostalgic places I grew up in.

Getting a partial is in the back of my mind but not top priority at the moment.

Indeed I shall! You'll have to wait until July though. That's when the maker anticipates getting up to me.

It looks like the pattern on the fursuit matches the same pattern of paint he puts on his face.

What exactly is "juggalo attire?" It looks like he dressed pretty similar to how he usually does, if that's what you mean.

The foam colour has no correlation to the fur colour. It's just the foam she used.

Here's the fur. The spots will be pure white.

@Hlaoroo That looks really good! I've got a lot of respect for fursuit makers. Best of luck with the rest.

Fursuiting sounds fun. But considering I have neither a sona nor the money for a fursuit, I don't think I'll be doing that any time soon.

If I do get one, I'd like to get it from Mischief Makers because that's where all my favorite fursuiters got theirs from.

Not really a fursuiter. But that is because I have a metric ton of characters that I make up on the spot and then forget about when they serve their purpose.
