Riley the GSD [WIP2] FC Photoshoot +VIDEO! by CanineHybrid Riley the GSD [WIP2] FC Photoshoot +VIDEO! by CanineHybrid
Update!

Video now on YouTube!



Here is an updated look at how Riley is coming along!
I took her to Further Confusion 2013 in a half-finished state (avert your eyes I'm naked!) so I could show off the foamwork and she got a lot of reactions from it. It was also a great test run to determine how the suit would hold up and perform. The biggest goal besides obvious promotion for my work and business was to show others how a suit is put together. I wore a sign on my back that said "What brings a character to life? Come talk to me about suit design and get a sneak peak at what happens behind the scenes in creature costume construction!" I became a walking panel and an visual aid for panels I attended that weekend, which has led me to the idea of keeping her in a half-finished state for panel demonstrations. I'll be making a second version that I'll finish.

Sorry for ruining the magic! |D

Not sure yet... though it's looking to be about $1500 or so because of the amount of padding.

Gotcha. As soon as i get paid again ( which should be around the....monday after the 5th. ) I plan on placing an order with you guys. I'm in need of a resin head ..its got some special things i need on it but not too bad. I'm in UT so it shouldn't be much to ship it either. I really really like your head designs , they are excellent.  I'm excited to start my project. I built one fursuit head but it wasn't too good the first time around. It wasn't bad, just not the calliber i wanted. 

Anyhow...i wont have the money till that monday..however..do you know how much it is to ship to ut if i expedite it ? Your site says to ask.

I ship priority mail so once it's in the mail it's very quick to arrive. Are you looking for an uncut or cut mask? If it's uncut there's no extra charge as I already have one ready to go. To finish and ship off a cut mask in one day, there's a 15% service charge, but if I can work on it in advance and just hold it for you for a week to get the funds, don't worry about a fee... unless your special request is really crazy. But the sooner you let me know what you want, the sooner I can start getting your order ready and the turnaround will be much better. If you want me to start early on your order, send me an email with the details of your rquest (sales@caninehybrid.com).
Additionally if you want 1-day express shipping it would be $30, instead of normal 2-day priority which is $10.

Thank you very much on your compliments on my work!

Hello, I LOVE your suit! I was wondering If I could borrow the design for the digigrade legs, and possibly use this as a reference for my next fursuit? Thanks!

Do you have any WIP or tutorial pics on how you made that work? I'm looking to do a Bunnymund cosplay for Halloween this year, but my last attempt at a 'fursuit' didn't go so well mobility-wise.
