I’m making a new fursuit. I hope to have it finished as soon as possible. It’s name is Isaac Homebrew. Isaac is an engineer extraordinare! You can tell from his glasses. Here’s a digital sketch of him from the front. Maus has made other sketches but I’d have to either photograph them or scan them in. I might do that.
His fur is rust. I wobbled back and forth on what fur to use (as in if I should get more), but I’m starting to think that Willy’s old orange/rust fur should be fine. I just wonder how much of Willy’s fur we have left. His boots are leather harness boots that we got off e-bay. This isn’t the exact image, but it gives you an idea:
He’s got black shorts and short-sleeved button up shirt on, but it’s going to be over actual fur, so his clothes can change for any given situation. His hair is actually black. I was thinking something along the lines of a pompadour, or greaser (Danny) without the sideburns. That’s going to be a little difficult to get (a good one), or get it looking correctly. Wigs are hard. Here’s an example of what I was thinking of (minus the side burns):
The gray stripes are wide gray canvas suspenders. The suspenders to actually be used have little attachments at the ends of them. I wanted to give a simple (dusty) wide square engineering/tinkering look to him. His face has a black spot on his chin, and black along the upper part of his snout and into a raccoon mask on his eyes. He’s not really a particular species, but I was thinking of having a limp black and rust colored raccoon tail. That’s also going to be a little hard to find.
The best element however, is the glasses. The glasses are not pictured here, but they are awesome. So, I thought, what does a classic tinkerer have? Giant glasses that make his eyes all googly and magnified! That’s what Isaac is going to have. We found some specialty costume glasses that I can see normal out of, but make my eyes all magnified and such. That’s going to be the finishing touch on the costume I think, the thing that really brings the whole character together.
