Meet Dagmar by Wolfbird
Meet Dagmar
My hubs and I made a buncha bird heads back in July when we were on vacation (two of them are in the background, hurr) and Dagmar here... well, she came out a little smaller than expected. Suspiciously exactly my size. Coincidentally matching an existing bodysuit I have. Strangely a species I've always wanted to have. HMMMMMMMM.

Oops. So now I have a hippogryph fursuit. She's got furry hands because like all my bird characters have scaled gray arms and it was time to mix things up a bit.

Imma wear her to Furpocalypse this year. Come say hi when you see me!!!

Chance Turnaround by Wolfbird
Chance Turnaround
And a fullview of   chancethedragon!

This costume features not only interchangeable eyes (see them all here!), but hidden tubes in the nostrils for crazy smoke machine fun tiemz! And HEELY FEET! Seriously. I loved making this character, Chance has the best ideas ever <3

Chance's Expressions by Wolfbird
Chance's Expressions
So ChanceTheDragon over on FurAffinity asked me for swappable eyes and man, what a challenge! He totally came to my rescue and figured out how I could do it, and it worked WONDERFULLY. I really like how they came out and I'd love to do more heads in this style.

This costume features not only them cool eyes, but hidden tubes in the nostrils for crazy smoke machine fun tiemz! And HEELY FEET! Seriously. I loved making this character, Chance has the best ideas ever <3

(and a random legs shot b/c it's better than a hole in the collage lol)

Nope, sorry!

I learned everything I know by looking either it up online or through my own experimentation. There are literally hundreds and hundreds of resources already available for free that tackle everything from beginner to advanced techniques in sewing, electronics, sculpture, mold making, etc etc! Learn the basics first and then use this knowledge as a springboard to developing your own techniques. Maybe you'll discover something new, you'll never know until you try!

Myself, I do this for a living and it's how I put food on the table. It's flattering that people ask for me for help (really!) but I'm not here to give away my hard-earned secrets! Thanks for understanding :)

I live in Montreal, Quebec with my boyfriend and we make costumes (fursuits) together. I also like to doodle, paint and write sometimes.

I expect to reopen for commissions late fall/winter this year.

Naturally, by my icon, you can see that I'm a paw fan, footpaws specifically, but I have to say that you have an excellent and wondrous sense of design and proportion that enables you to produce awesome and amazing suits. Great work ;).

From what I've seen, it doesn't appear to matter which part specifically you may be hired to make because it looks like you can do all of them equally well. Is there a favorite fursuit part that's either really easy to make or you just have a preference for?

I like the challenge of heads, but hands+feet are really zen to make.

Haha, that's awesome! I just added you on skype, I look forward to chatting!

That's really cool man! I really want to make my plushies full time, but I just don't know how to get my name out there enough that I could live off the income. It's good for you man, keep it up!!!

Is the job at least interesting? XD I don't mind being poor/self employed, there's something about being able to wake up at 2PM and drink on the job >:D
