I've finally gotten around to making a fursuit of my fursona. I'm pretty happy with it so far given it my first attempt at making one. But I'm having a lot of trouble finding fur for the bodysuit. The only fabric stores in Australia I know of are Lincraft and Spotlight. Lincraft fur is awful quality and sheds more than my dogs, and they shed a lot, haha. Spotlight is good quality but are always out of stock both instores and online, plus they don't have many colour varieties. Which is fine for all my characters since I like natural designs, but my dreams of making suits for other people kinda goes out the window with that.
I've looked at a lot of online stores but they have insane shipping prices. I refuse to pay $70 shipping for a $20 piece of fabric :/ Even ebay has failed me. Does anyone know of any hidden gem stores that have a good variety of faux fur and have reasonable international shipping prices? (or better yet, australia based stores? I'd be willing to travel to Melbourne if needed)
