Never thought id say this... but who are some good fursuit makers in aus >_>

I tried making one myself but I just dont have the equipment or the time. it was ok for my handpaws because they were easy to sew and touch up by hand, but when it comes to larger things that take like 5+ hours to simply sew to a backing cloth, one mistake costs double that with pulling apart the stitches, cutting a new shape and doing it again. Then theres the part where I just cant find the colours I want in SA, or fur of the correct length.

Id kinda want one more tailored to my body size coz im not exactly normal size (im smaller than small when it comes to adult mens business/t/polo shirts lol) so Im interested in how possible makers would deal with custom sizings for parts.
