stegosaur
Hello! Joined the community not too long ago and was looking for some potential rarsuit help.

I have a dragon I was looking to make with a very sloped, dinosaur like face. I have seen on really Dreamvisions Creations with dragon head blanks and wonder if anyone here could suggest/know of anyone else out there right now who makes dragon/dinosaur blanks.

Oldie but a goodie - Stan Winston Studios' work for the movie Congo, showing off the arm extensions used in the gorilla suits so they could run around on all fours. (twitter post by SWS)

23rd-Feb-2015 11:32 pm - Odd question about tails
Astro Boy Finger
I know that most people make tails without mechanisms inside and the way people walk and the lightness of the tail will make it move pretty realistically (hip-shaking FTW!).

But if one wanted to do a snake character without legs (or like a naga), and have a long tail dragging behind in a sinuous fashion, would an internal mechanism be enough to make the tail wiggle? Or would rubber on the bottom help it catch and release the floor in a wiggly motion? Or would it require wheels and some other internal structure to get a snakey movement?

Or, to cover another avenue, is it possible to extend a tail out from a person for a very long distance (let's say, 6 feet/2 meters or more) and have it supportable from the waist of the person without dragging the ground, along with the ability to sway back and forth?

This is awesome! Why wasn't this person at the rarsuit panel?

It's a scene from a Correfoc -- a "fire run" -- in which devil- and demon-costumed performers wield fireworks through the streets of Barcelona and surrounding areas. There's sometimes parade-float dragons too!

Yeah, I know some of you might be scared to willingly see another George Lucas project at this point, but I can't resist something with hideous cute monsters in it. ;)

Reminder: Rarsuit Roundtable @ FurCon! Saturday 2pm, Blossom Hill I (Marriott 3rd floor)

So! I've got these digitigrade stilts. Sometimes called Weta Legs...though Weta ultimately declined to produce them, ownership reverted to the inventors, and the stilts are now sold by Area 51 as Digilegs.

Been fun and interesting, but I decided they're too unwieldy for costumes I had in mind. So if someone wants to buy them, I'd entertain offers...this includes trades with rarsuit makers.

Info and stuff at www.digilegs.com . These are the "taller" size (knee-to-ankle of 420-500 mm), with "small" calf (340-390 mm). I'm 6'0", 175#...these will not work on shorter and/or significantly heavier people.

New, the stilts are around $900 USD, plus ~$150 for shipping and ~$70 import duty. These have been walked around the park a few times, so adjust accordingly. Taking serious offers (including trades, partial trades, etc.), send a note if interested. I'll be at FurCon, can deliver in person.
28th-Dec-2014 01:35 pm - FurCon 2015: Rarsuit Roundtable GO!
Scabrous
"Dragons! Werewolves! Demons and monsters! A meet-and-greet for active and aspiring builders, performers and fans of costuming and fursuiting outside the "cute" box. Ask questions, get construction tips, share your real-life monster stories and discuss the appeal of this growing segment of the fandom. RAR!"

After years of "wouldn't it be cool if...", I took matters into my own hands...this is a thing and will be happening at FurCon!

Con schedule is still being finalized, but I have a tentative time & location of Saturday from 2 to 3:30 pm, in the Blossom Hill I meeting room (Marriott 3rd floor). This is about 30 minutes after the parade, so probably just enough time to decant your suit and freshen up in your hotel room if you want.

Like the Fursuit Roundtable, this is a social panel with no strictly set agenda, though I'll have a projector & presentation to help move things along as needed, and maybe a couple things to show & tell, perhaps a giveaway (minor thing, not a rarsuit, sorry!). Bring anything you'd like to share, or just come and hang out with like-minded folks!
