Literature Text


to make the whole body look realistic and accurate you will need the use of padding

look at the back legs... they have a back bend in them this is easily achieved by adding knee and thigh padding on the front of your leg and a triangle on the back to create the back bend,
with the head you need an extended neck, wolves have long necks so to achieve this effect you can use the bike helmet method were you stick foam on a bike helmet, view out mouth.

for the stilts use pvc pieing (guttering) with wooden handles, make them long enough so your back is strait and your legs are strait, or bent to a comfortable position.
with foam paws.
if there going to be floppy joint all you have to do is ad a door hinge at the ankle of the stilt

the rest of the body shapes can be padded too but dont always need it,

I do recommend you make a duct tape dummy from old clothes just tape all the way around your body in the position you want and then cut your way out stuff it with rags and vola you have a stand to help you make padding and furring.

that's the basics. more info just ask >>> more info links.

if you can read more info
sorry i cant put writing anywhere else so it had to be in the literature

How would I do this for say a pony or a dragon, specifically a Nightshade?

How do you make the head so that you can see out? Do you use a mesh material?
I want to make a wolf link quad suit. Where can you get fake fur? About how much on average does it cost to make a quad suit? Any tips for me? Thanks

Joan's fabric is where I get my fur. NEVER EVER get your fur from a place that doesn't....
1) specialize in furs (this means that the store sells only furs!)
2) sell furs by the yard/meter price (e.a. $7 a yard)
3) give a variation of prices (e.a. Solid black fur is $8 a yard, and mixed browns is $12 a yard)


The furs are the most expensive part. I prefer to get my fur from Joan's because they specialize in furs and have reasonable pricing. All together, you will most likely spend around $150-$300 on furs depending on the project and how efficiently you use your fur. Hope it helped :)

I would charge you $200. I am a reliable person who does this for a living. The pricing would be....
$85 for the head
$53 for the paws
$56 for the tail
Rest is for shipping(it's estimated out to about $200 total) also, I would need to know how big your hands are compared to the size of a quarter or euro. As for the head: I would need to know the measurement around your head. Thanks! You can email me at

How do i get the fur on the head though?
KuzunohaxX's avatar
Fabric glue and/or hot glue (not on the right side though!!!!!)
ThoronWild's avatar
same as the rest, sew it on/ sew a mask of fur and put that on, or glue it on with hot glue

for the front legs, can you use walking canes, then attach the door hinge??

i just saw them at the store and i was like ...hmmmmm.....
laughterbuddies's avatar
Walking canes would be kinda hard to balance on, though...
