First off, don't kill me for posting this here, nor for its content.

Those of you that know me, you know i'm a retired fursuiter. I'm planning on coming out of retirement again, but need help with one thing. I build my own suit, and need someone that knows about or has done wireframing, its for the tail of my squirrel suit. After looking around for mats, patterns, and builders, I've found nothing for it, not even on any cosplay/fursuit sites, squirrel suits are kinda rare. If any of you know someone, or has any leads on this, please let me know.


P.S. I really don't care what you think when you read "I'm a suiter," we of the furry community are not all "R or X rated" ppl, if you understand that (keeping it "PG" for the mods). So keep your hate and anti-furry posts where it belongs, the trash. I'm just sick of non-furries bashing us and not even knowing what or who is really behind the fur.
i'm back, for now anyway.

what i need is someone that either knows how to weld aluminum or some type of strong styrene into the framework for the tail. and no, i dont have the plans for the tail, i'm gonna have to build it in a wireframe program so whoever helps knows what its gonna look like and where the doors/flaps go. Think of the tail as a backpack/storage system as well.

Going off of knives, to get the outside framework to shape, use a light weight 16 or 18 gage plastic wire. It won't need to be attached at the base. If you use the same wire up top, it will help give it shape as well. Otherwise, you'll game a beaver tail...

I'd totally love to see this when you're done (if you don't care to post progress shots).
