Hello. I want to make a suit very similar to pictured below. The issue I am having is that I can’t really use traditional fursuit head tutorials because this head is shaped so differently. I am having trouble thinking of a way to create the base/structure of the head. I don’t have anything to make a mold/pattern off of and balloons, even big ones, aren’t quite the right shape. Should I use upholstery foam for the final shape? That part I think I have figured out (alternative ideas are welcome), but the base to work off of I am just stumped. I am thinking of creating a frame out of craft wire, covering it with duct tape, and making a pattern off of that?
I have never made a suit before and am really eager to get started but I need some advice since tutorials for something like this are hard to come by.
If anyone could give me some advice or point me in the right direction I would be so grateful! I am open to all suggestions and ideas.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post!
