Khajiit Head by FarukuCostumes Khajiit Head by FarukuCostumes
Better shots of Svaal the khajiit! 
Im hoping to slowly build up a full outfit for this (and somehow teach myself to braid the hair or switch to dreads like originally planned)

Animatronic ears video is over here! -> www.youtube.com/watch?v=88IgRC…

Out of curiosity, seeing as how fantastic your head looks and I can imagine what kind of work went into it, what do you charge for a full suit?

Wow awesome headpiece! And I love the animatronic ears! How are the ears controlled? are they controlled by the movement of the jaw, or is there another person operating by remote or something?

You should do dreads for the hair if you can!
I don't think there are that many fursuits with dreads out there. :)

I really envy people who can make fursuits. Well, people that can make anything, really, but especially fursuits. I wish they weren't so expensive, but I totally understand. The process is a long and challenging one, especially for people who make their own patterns, or work each project from scratch without a pattern. Factoring in the cost of materials, cooling devices, time taken, and the challenges of the dying/furring process for people who make their own fur/patterns, I know it's already expensive for an artist to even undertake and attempt a fursuit. I can only imagine how expensive a "failure" would be to the maker (like, either the project just doesn't turn out right in the maker's point of view, or it doesn't live up to a commissioners expectations, and they refuse to pay [or they just bitch about it to try to get a discount, because some people are assholes]). So I understand why they have to be expensive. This is by far, one of the best potential fursuits I've ever seen. Just the head itself would probably be worth a decent $300 (if not more), especially to someone who's a fan of the Elder Scrolls series.

If I ever have the money, I'd love to commission something like this someday. This definitely deserves a Daily Deviation. I'll definitely be watching from now on, and will keep this in mind in case I ever win the lottery or save up enough and have the financial stability to make a purchase like this (most full fursuits I've seen run anywhere from $1000-$5000 depending on the quality and type of fursuit [quadsuits cost more].) The quality is just astounding here, and I could see a full suit selling for over $5000. Someday... I'll definitely commission one...

Its a skill that can easily be learnt, I myself are 100% self taught with sewing/casting etc. 
Each project has its own pattern, nothing can be re-used (well..maybe the tails but they vary so much its never really worth saving) 
Materials can run at around 300+, hell I have one this year thats running on 1000+ in materials alone! :) Each is different, but im so very glad I got into costume making, im constantly learning and adapting and its such an interesting experience. (and the thing with payment is to get the cash in first, with my turnaround times being 3 weeks for a costume its pointless asking for payment after) 
The heads I make start at 500, this head with custom animatronics will easily run over 650 alone due to the material cost and double man-hours put into it. 
If you think about it this way, 500-50 (materials)= 350, now sort out the hours, heads take 4 days which is 40 hours which is 8.75 per hour. This is a fairly low wage for someone with my experience and qualifications but its enough to pay rent and bills.

Thank you kindly for your comment, its nice to see someone give thought to what they write here on DA :)
