Watchers

Would there be any interest in pre-made/pre-designed skull masks?
I was thinking about coming up with a few different paint jobs, illustrating them, and maybe auctioning them off as finished pieces.
Any thoughts?  Specific addons? (Horns/ears etc.)

Hiya, I'm MissRaptor. I love beasties of all sorts. I've always wanted to work as a creature designer and breathe life into my work with raw materials.
I have a BFA from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, minored in theatre and was a founding member of a puppet company based in Indiana, PA. I've had costume making experience since 2001, with four of those years as a costume designer at the halloween company Specter Studios, designing many costumes and a few masks (gaining mold making knowledge and techniques along the way).

Do you have any tips on using a resin skull base when making a fursuit head?
I'm a beginner ;v;

Sure, what were you most concerned about? Are you starting from a ready to fur base, or looking for general notes on main construction points?

General notes on main construction.

Well, let's see.  Scoring the surface with a razor/box cutter is best when using hot glue, or any glue for that matter.  Especially if you're using a skull and not a full head resin base.  It'll give a surface more of a traction to stick to.  Painting and sealing the skull first is the best way to start off.  Also, of course, making sure the hinges work (and elastic or springs).  Make a pattern out of paper and tape to use as a pattern to cut the fur while the skull is positioned on the head armature.  It's not really good to use a styrofoam head, as the proportions are off, but if you do, leave a good seam allowance and add more of a length to the neck area.  I sew in zippers to the pieces when sewing them all together, then adding them to the mask, or furred face base.  If that makes sense.  Does that answer anything?  I hope I'm not too confusing! ^_^
