Fursuit Head Tutorial by RoseHexwit Fursuit Head Tutorial by RoseHexwit
I'm sorry that this picture is so gigantic, but this tutorial will teach fursuiters how to make their own fursuit heads with wire frames. I know that most tutorials use foam, but I wanted to be different.

Wolfbird's "follow-me eyes" tutorial can be found here: [link]

Also, if you use my design for your fursuit, please give me some sort of credit! It would be great if you let people know that RoseHexwit helped you with your fursuiting. :3

EDIT: I submitted this tutorial several years ago. It's very outdated. Haters are going to hate, but I've made two heads since this one that look WAY better.

I suggest for future heads that you should use foam. It is much softer and more squishy to the touch, also it is much easier to work with. It's cool that you want to be creative with a wire base though :D (Big Grin) ! I also think you should try using long pile fur. Yes it is pretty expensive, but Distinctive Fabrics has really cheep and good quality faux fur. Cool tutorial!

There is a much safer way to do this with plastic mesh, it works close to the same, and holds in a much more sturdy fashion <3

the wire could cut  you badly, (im sure you don't plan on getting bandages or or stitches when you're having fun suiting!) or even damage the fur! do not use this method unless you're crazy and fine with (maybe) taking a trip to the hospital!!

just be extra careful, although I've never witnessed any suit-related injuries (or suits, for that matter) I know the dangers! maybe line the inside of the suit/wires with tape or foam or something? (Or not, if you're sure what you've done already is enough, but I wouldn't be so certain) also, the pointy edges can cut fur in more severe cases, as well as warp and shift the head so it looks weird. (That is, if you have a lot of things hitting and applying pressure to the suit)
