The woods are lovely, dark and deep... by MissRaptor The woods are lovely, dark and deep... by MissRaptor

This one of a kind fursuit head was so much fun to make!


VIDEO in action

--Lightweight hollow plastic shell
--Moving Jaw
--Cast resin eyes hand painted with iridescent irises
--LED eyes (yellow) with hidden mounted toggle switch
--Tearduct vision with additional peripheral vents
--Airbrush detailing
--Lightweight hand cast plastic jawset (with protective gloss)
--Latex cast nose with permanent wet look (nostrils open for additional air circulation)
--Latex eyelids
--Latex tongue (with gloss)
--Soft whiskers with no memory (can be bent to any position desired)

All faux fur.
Slip on design, one size fits all. Additional foam pad will be included for a tighter fit. Mask fit can be easily adjusted by adding the additional foam pad included to the top of the mask, right on top of the installed pad.

Vision is through the tearducts, with additional peripheral vision vents.

LED eyes take a 9v battery (included) which rests in a pocket on the back fur panel. Tiny bubbles present in resin eyes which are impossible to avoid. I mix the resin very slowly to decrease their formation. They are invisible when LEDs are off, and only slightly visible up close when on. Main gold iris color is iridescent paint, which adds a live wild look to the eye.

Cast latex nose and eyelids. Nose has a permanent wet look and nostrils are open for air circulation. Latex tongue has a gloss applied. The painted teeth also have a gloss coat which acts as a protective barrier.

Lightweight hollow construction makes the mask easy to wear for long periods of time. Jawset is roto cast to be very lightweight. Whiskers are super soft and have no memory which means they can be bent to any desired position and then rebent again and again. They are NOT wire and will not poke anyone when giving hugs.

Hi, did you make a tutorial video for your led eyes? I'm trying but... I don't know where I'm making mistakes. And btw they aren't as beautiful as yours!

I have not made a tutorial on LED eyes.  And thank you for the compliment! 
I had an experienced technician help me learn a little about electronics.  But if you can read the packages of the LEDs (and I mean the specs and such), check out this site:
It helps a bunch when calculating resistor values if needed and you can plug in everything even your power supply (battery voltage).  It will automatically design the circuit for you once you plug in all the values.  I love it :D

Omg, thank you for your answer! I'm so excited! Thank you!! I wrote you another comment about your "silvery blue blind eyes" cause that effect is so nice!
Can you help me with that? I wanted to do the same effect but with yellow/orange eyes... But i don't know if I have to use trasparent resin eyes and coloured led or put ink while casting the eyes... In Italy we are like 1000 years late in this beautiful art of yours. I have no help :(

hello your masks are very beautiful, I wanted to try to create one but I wanted to know how to create jaw teeth?
MissRaptor Featured By Owner Oct 3, 2012  Professional
Thank you very much :)
There are a few different ways; some sculpt them out of sculpey clay or air dry clay. I cast my own in plastic from a mold. The easiest way is buying them from a taxidermist website like Van Dyke's or McKenzie.

Wow! That's so awesome that any fursuit makers can glow the eyes like that! That's amazing! :wow:

I'm not one that's into the furry scene, but i do allot of cosplay. So i can honestly say WOW! This is AMAZING. I can really appreciate the Hollywood level quality here. My dear, i don't know what you do for a living, but you should be working for Jim Henson studios. I also took a look at your gallery and love your custom plush. The glowing eyes just put it over amazing!

Wow, many thanks! I love Henson; I've wanted to work at the Creature Shop for many moons ^_^
Thank you so much! /blush

What are the whiskers made from, and how do you apply them on the heads?
wingwolf88 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012

... but I have promises to keep... one of the few I learned during my year in USA - and I can still remember every single word. I love it _

Nice head, for sale I think a video is always helpful (and I'm interested in it, too :D ). What do you mean with plastic shell? Did you use a deep drawn mask??
MissRaptor Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2012  Professional
The plastic is a heat formed type, similar to vaccuforming.
I'll try and get a video up soon; I agree that would help to see things :)
luthien368 Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Neat, I always like to find out new ways of making good masks. Do you need special machinery for that? Do you have a picture of the mask without fur?

And I'm looking foreward to the vid :)
