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 It's very outdated.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.

If your looking for a cheap way to make a head, its best to use foam, it not expensive if you get it in the right place! I got over a yard of foam for just $10 at walmart!

Eee I Love it!
Now, I do have a question for you dear. Would it be possible to replaced the copper wire with metal hangers? I'm merely a teenager and have no way of acquiring anything save for the rare occasion which I have money and actually make it to the store . ^^"
I have a ageneral idea of how to transfer, but I simply don't know if it would work.
Thank you for the amazing tutorial and any help you can provide.

Nevermind heheh, I got it figured out very nicely and it's coming together quite well! I completed the frame using old wire hanger (which are a pain to bend/work with, I might add!), and it looked similar to yours though I've been using an old baseball cap as a base; to keep it from digging into my head, as well as to make it bit more comfortable for me with the extra balance. While I did this, I use a -ton- of hot glue to hold everything together, layering it multiple times to ensure that it didn't pop out of place whilst I worked. I strung some clear tape over it fill in all of the gaps between the sections, and now am in the process of adding more shape to it using sheets of plastic (which I got from cutting apart sandwich bags) and poly-fil.

okay guys, we get it, its ot the best out there. at least she put an effort to it, unlike some who dont. we dont have to keep repeating ourselves. this is an old tutorial anyway, im sure she has laerned, and improved. all fursuiters had to start some where right? you just cant make your first suit, and expect  it to be the best, so shut up. leave her alone.

I'm going have to disagree with you on the "at least she put effort into it, unlike some who don't."
Say that to WildPup11 on FA.
Every good fursuit maker puts a shit ton of effort into every head they make.
This crappy excuse for a head wouldn't take 5 minuets to make. It's THAT bad.

I am a fursuit maker and even I would never dream of using wire because of all those sharp points that could cut you.

I haven't made too many fursuits, but I know from research that the cheapest, but not a very good method, is the wire technique. I realize this is probably your first fursuit, but to make a better one would be to use foam, which can be cheap. I understand budget and stuff, but if you're going to made a fursuit tutorial, you have to use a suitable material. But nice try. You'll get better in time!

its comment threads like this make me sad to be a furry. It seems to me that she is new to it and she gave it her all, the negativity here is sickening. You should all be ashamed of your self's, would you be that hurt full if you were face to face? Pathetic, just pathetic comments.
