My Bio
All comments and notes to which the answer is contained in here (or to which the appropriate answer is "Go Google it.") will be cheerfully ignored ^^

My FAQ: www.beetlecatoriginals.com/faq…

WHERE TO BUY FUR:
www.crscraft.com (international) – Realistic furs. Ignore the short pile and fun fur as it is not good for anything except small accents. I use a lot of their furs in my suits.

www.imstuffedfur.com (international) – High quality random assortment of furs. Pricy but worth it if you need something unusual

www.distinctivefabrics (USA) www.interiormall.com (search for 'promo shag') (Canada) – solid colors of fluffy fur for toonier characters.

AIRBRUSHING INFORMATION:
I use Createx airbrush paints. My airbrush is a Badger 155 Anthem. My compressor is an IWATA Smart Jet.

No I can not tell you what airbrush/compressor to buy. The above is what I have and it works for me. Createx (transparent or opaque does not matter) has proven to be one of the longest lasting paints, but you can airbrush with any material that you can get to come out the nozzle. In a pinch I'll use basic artist's acrylics.

COSTUME MAKING RESOURCES:

A new Airbrushing video is up! In this one I airbrush three pairs of ears from start to (more or less) finished (I finished my camera battery in the last few minutes).I enjoyed filming/editing/watching it and I hope you do too!

Regarding Notes

0 min read
I don't read notes. I honestly don't. I don't even click the little tab that takes me to them. You can send them if you want but it's likely they are going to sit there for a while. Contact me through email via my website http://www.beetlecatoriginals.com if you need something but anything not directly involving my customers/auction questions/sales questions will be answered only if I have time. Like most artists, bookkeeping/email is not my favorite thing to do so I try to keep it down to the easy questions/necessities nowadays. There are already so many other things that take my time away from work that I have very little interest in resea

Wonderful builds, truly stunning! The level of detail and absolute perfection in your works of art are simply astounding. From your realistic style (Which I adore) to the way you build different aspects of the anatomy! Perfect. Thanks for sharing your work here!

what you do is so impressive that it scared me, thats the best way to describe it.

Omg, you’re so amazing at fursuits!

I’m in the process of making one, any tips? (Especially feetpaws. I haven’t found too many tutorials on those.)

Sorry for the delay, Happy Birthday!
Happy BDAY!!!!
