Helvi reindeer -fursuit- by Flytrap-Hell Helvi reindeer -fursuit- by Flytrap-Hell
Again I forgot to post these after I made these... ^^' So Helvi reindeer was made around last Christmas. These pictures are taken in anime happening Desucon FrostBite 2012.

Honestly I am not satisfyed AT ALL to this suit. First she was supposed to be realistic looking, but of course you can't get anything realistic from a fur quality that's not from the top. She also looked absolutely horrible with realistic eyes, I did something that messed up the whole thing. In the end I had to place toony eyes for her. Secondly, she is a huge pain to wear. The horns kept digging into my own skull and at the end of the con they fell down hanging from the sides of the head (not pointing up like they should) and that made it even more painful. The vision inside the head is awfully poor, since I installed the eyes too far apart from eachother. I also made a mistake with the front hooves, since there's plastic inside them to keep them in shape... A PLASTIC DOESN'T BREATHE! I ended up to have pools of sweat inside those hooves... gross...
The con itself was kinda like a failure for me as well, so maybe that's the reason I so dislike this fursuit. My friend who was supposed to be there with me just escaped at one point and left me all alone. Well I just hanged around the other suiters, so I didn't feel so much down of that. But I stayed awake during the whole con. During the whole night. That made me think "never again", but I am sure that wont be the last time I stay up like that. XD So in the end I was extrelemy tired, I felt cold yet sweaty, I had a headache (because of tiredness, the horns and the vision problem) and felt abandoned. =(

So... I dunno what should I do with this suit. =__=

Mahtava! Saankos kysellä, kuinka olet tehnyt jalka/käsisorkat? Itse olen nimittäin väsäämässä porosuittia (:

Aivan mahtava suitti!

Kiitos paljon! :) Nämä sorkat eivät kovin paljoa eroa normi tassujen teosta. Jalkasorkissa kenkien päälle haluttu muoto vaahtomuovilla ja nahalla päällystin sitten tuon sorkka osion. Käsissä tein tuommoiset sorkan muotoiset palaset softiksesta mihin sormet menivät sisään ja päällystys nahalla ja karvalla. Sormipaloissa kannattaa hahmotella eka pahvista, että millaset palaset haluaa.

OMG! this is great!!!! I really love reindeers!!! I have the crazy idea of become a cellist reindeer (working in the cellist part [link] ). With this type of Reindeer suit I can do it :D maybe will need some freedom for fingers, maybe free fingers hidden under the hooves :3

I am planning to go Finland in winter or next year :D it would be nice if I go to order one like this :DDDDD

beutyfull work, really ;)

Ah, thank you really much. ^^ Though I ended up selling this one. I don't fursuit that much by myself, I just like making them.

And your idea sounds fantastic! I think you'll have to leave somekind of holes for your fingers to pull out when you play.

Oh, a shame that your fursuit wasn't quite as comfortable as it looks awesome. XD She looks fine, as a character, to me. But, of course, it's only fun to wear it if it's comfortable too...

But I think you should just try to correct a couple of the things (the horns seem a doable task and the hooves are possible too). It's still quite pretty, even though not 100% correct...in your opinion. XD To me it seems perfectly fine. XP

Heitä fursuit kaappiin notkumaan ja unohda se tai myy eteenpäin :'D
Minusta tämä näyttää kyllä erittäin hyvältä (ja fursuitin tekeminen porosta on kyllä todella omaperäinen ja erikoislaatuinen idea), mutta ei kovin mukavalta kuulosta kyllä tuo tarina miten Desussa kävi o__o (harmi kun en itse sinne päässyt..) mutta kuten eräs cossaaja totesi, 'cossaaminen ilman kärsimystä on teeskentelyä'

Haha, joo "cossaaminen ilman kärsimystä on teeskentelyä" on tuttu lausahdus. XD varmaan annan tän suitin todellakin lojua kaapin pohjalla jonkun aikaa ennen ku teen mitään tälle. Muutenkin pitäis vähän kunnostella edellisiä suitteja... x3
