Raptor in Action! [link]

There are so many details on this suit to show off, so I have to submit two different collages! xD Keep in mind this was made for someone who is sized differently, and does not fit me perfectly!

The raptor suit was finished up this morning in the wee hours, and today she'll be shipped off to her new owner in TN to be debuted at Dragon Con 2011. So if you're going to that convention, keep an eye out for this Clever Girl. ;D

Head Features:
-Moving Jaw (Mechanics are a secret, please don't ask.)
-Fully sculpted head made of resin and rigid foam for extreme lightness. (Custom mold made)
-Tongue made of flexi foam (custom mold made)
-Teeth are attached to head mold so also made of plastic and extremely light
-Vision ports in the neck so wearer can see very well, while it being somewhat camouflaged.
-Head has 2 fans installed for optimal airflow
-Resin cast eyes handpainted (Custom mold made)
-Airbrushing over the entirety of the head.
-Mouth "flaps" for realism
-Zipper in the back for easy in and out
-Magnets on neck flap to corresponding magnets on suit to hold it down.

Body Features:
-6FT long tail with a foam core that moves in an extremely realistic manner
-Reticulated foam used for a good portion of the foam work for excellent airflow and lightness
-Various degrees of upholstery foam used for the rest
-Fingers are individually carved out and can be moved separately by your own fingers
-Toes are attached to shoes for extreme comfort
-Claws are all made out of plastic, slush cast for lightness (Custom molds made)
-Zipper down the front for easy access in and out
-Fully lined with athletic mesh
-Fully airbrushed
-4 belt loop attachment for the tail to keep it upright and steady
-Velcro and snaps used to keep feet on

All in all the suit only weight 18 lbs, which is really nice, considering what it is. The length is about 6ft, and it's about as tall, so it's a pretty impressive costume. This suit was meant to resemble the raptors in Jurassic Park 1, so no feathers.

Twilight poses for a newspaper photograph that emphasizes the bloody but otherwise minor cuts that she received from the shards of glass that went flying through the air after a piece of masonry was hurled through the window of the True Brew Café where she was meeting with various citizens including several changelings. While it was doubtful that the perpetrator(s) knew of her presence, the photo is used to shock them with the unintended consequences of their actions.

I like caracals. I know they frequently look comical with those outlandish ears, so I tried to make him look like something you should take more seriously. Unfortunately he ended up looking mostly just cuddly. But at least the fur turned out not too bad considering the amount of time I spent trying to create a visible fur grain.

Edit: Yes, this is my fursona and she is an android

Doing this after 2 computer crashes really makes one not care about the glowing effect.

But anyways, I am working on a reference sheet with her so I figured I'd get some opinions

Like some opinions about the design. (Not the art quality itself, please. Unless you feel you really have to.)

She was originally black. Does she look better as a white german shepherd or as a black one?

Feedback about anything would be great.

Cast from molds off of sculpts that were 100% hand sculpted (even the teeth!). Solid plastic so very durable, yet not too heavy. Comes in 3 different styles; Unpainted, base colored, and fully finished.

These jawsets can also come in crystal clear to be used with LEDs, but there will be a $5 charge because the clear resin takes over a day to cure, making the mold unusable for that time.

Size: (The width of the jawsets is the widest point shown)

Top - 3.5" wide by 2.45" long
bottom: 3" wide by 2.5" long

Unpainted comes in 1 color of your choosing, and you can paint over it yourself to get it exactly as you wish it to look. Can come in most any color of your choosing.

Can be found in our webstore
