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
