im new to the furry fandom and was wondering how to go about acquiring a fursuit. am i better off buying or making? do you have any clue about how to go with ever. i have found a bunch of tutorials on how to make fursuits but none on elephant like creatures. how do i go about making a trunk. will i be stuck with a fixed trunk or can i make one that can flap around some what without looking to tacked on?
thanks for your help and may the source be with you.

There are quite a few interesting thoughts for an elephant fursuit! I have a few questions, if you don't mind. What are you intending to use as the material for the ears/skin? Do you have a budget? Are there other things that you have a particular want for this suit?

You can find that some tutorials on wings would do for an effect ear for an elephant. A trunk can be emulated using similar ideas as a tail. You might want to look at some other tusked creature fursuits.


As for whether you should make your own, or get someone else to make it, do you want one sooner rather than later, or is price a factor? If you want one done quickly, you'd best be talking to some fursuit creators. If you want it much cheaper, learning how to do it yourself is probably the way to go.

i would like brown fur for the majority of the suit with red and orange highlights. i would like to keep it under $500 (if possible). and not really.

as im not in any rush i think making it will be the way to go. the question is now how to acquire all the materials.


thanks for the advise.

Do you mean tusked?

As for tutorials on tusked based animals, search 'tutorials tusk fursuit' in google, ask, yahoo, bing, etc, and you should see a few, see which ones you like or can work with. Most of us here don't actually make fursuits, let alone know how to make tusked ones.
