I forgot about this blog I don't think that I mentioned that i'm not using this for school anymore so i'm going to see if i can change the page name and only use it for furry stuff not mostly post assignments but i will soon make a big update about my summer since i did a lot of fursuiting.
I'm working on another suit i did not finish the last suit i was working on yet I may have a slight obsession with making fursuits.
Back in November i made a post about plans for a new fursuit and i was a little late to get started on it. The picture below was from when I started the head and only got one side done. it was taking me forever to get the structure right and my hands were sore and i had to go to school the next day so I went to bed since it was really late. I did not get back to working on the head for weeks, making fursuits takes a long time and if your a school student homework always gets in the way of suit making but if I spend my time wisely I usually get the head done.
the next picture is from when I was done with making the foam structure this is by far my favorite base I have ever made so far and I love it and I am amazed I was able to pull it off it took me a long time but I was proud of it. Making the foam base is my favorite part about making a fursuit head you get to be creative and sculpt however you want even though your hands get really sore it is in my opinion the best part of making a suit.
Sorry the picture is such bad quality. After I finished the base I ductaped it and drew on the patterns. Now I am waiting for my custom mint green that I ordered from Fursuit Supplies.com to come, no offense to Fursuit Supplies.com but it is taking way longer then I expected its been about a month and I don't have my fur yet and im worried they will forget about my order and not send me the fur and I will have wasted my money on something really expensive, also they have the purple and blue fur out of stock its been out of stock for months and I am a little disappointed with Fursuit Supplies.com know its hard to get new fur and stuff but some people might need that fur right away for commissions or if they are trying to finish a suit for a convention, I think I will just order my blue and purple fur somewhere else.
The picture below is all of the fursuits I have made the one on the left is my first it is my angel dragon fursona Valentine and it is very ugly, the one in the middle is my second suit my butterfly fursona Midnight I am very proud of this head, and the one on the right is the new head that is going to be my husky fursona Mint Shadow and so far I love this head. The picture below proves that anyone can improve and if you put your heart in to your work you can improve, I love to make fursuit heads and I think it is one of the best hobbies in the world.
Ugh I have to make another Newsela post again for school I wish I could just post about furry stuff but Newsela does not have anything about furries so I picked a blog post about animals since they are kind of like furries. This blog post is about a article on Newsela the article talks about Killer Whales at sea world and if they should be released into sea pens or if they should stay at sea world. Many animal rights groups are pushing the idea of putting the Killer Whales in sea pens but the workers at sea world don't want to and they have certain reasons why, the whales can not catch food all by themselves, they cant handle certain sicknesses that they can get in the ocean, and they have been in a tank their whole lives and don't know how to act in a environment in the wild.
Sea World had an idea to make their cages double their original size a plan called the Blue World, the California Coastal Commission approved the plan but under one condition if they would allow the bigger cages Sea World would have to stop breeding the whales sadly sea world stopped the project and have filled a lawsuit challenging the commission’s authority to impose the no-breeding conditions. It looks like the Killer Whales will be stuck in small cages for a long time until Sea World stops being so dumb and stops the lawsuit against the breeding and allows the bigger cages but the only thing that matters to them must be more baby whales and making more money.

This is a wishlist of stuff i want for Christmas I have to do a blog post about this for a school assignment
I hope my parents check my blog about furries that I made in school, so they know to tell my family members that i am obsessed with BB-8.
This blog post is about making eyes for a fursuit head. One part of a fursuit that gives it expression are the eyes, there are a few different types of eyes this blog post will explain each type of eye.
Toony standard eyes. Toony standard eyes are usually on the surface of the face of the fursuit and most of the time have black felt, plastic, or foam border to outline the eye. The heads in the picture below have toony standard eyes (the heads below are not mine). Normally these eyes are made of plastic or foam and the iris of the eye is made out of a see through fabric that is usually colored by paint or markers.
Toony follow me eyes. Follow me eyes have the illusion that the fursuit head's eyes are following you if you stand at any angle by the fursuit where the eyes are visible most of the time it will look like it's staring at you. The fursuit below does not belong to me.
The description I said for the toony eye was not so clear, so here is a picture of an unfinished toony eye, but it does not have a black border on it.
Realistic eye. The realistic eye looks realistic and does not usually have a follow me effect. These eyes are made out of resin and usually are painted or are glued to a painted piece of paper, these eyes also usually have a border made out of clay and a little bit of see through fabric put in the tear duct of the eye. The fursuit below does not belong to me.
This is a picture of an unfinished head. This head gives a good look at the eye and the tear duct that the fursuiter can look through.
I hope this blog post helped any first time fursuit makers if this helped any furries with making a fursuit eye. If this blog post helped you make a fursuit eye leave a comment.
I never did mention on this blog that I am a swimmer on this blog, I love swimming just as much as I love furries. I saw a post on a page called Newsela about swimming and I thought I would put it on my page, and also I had to make a blog post on this blog about an article on Newsela for an assignment in school. This article is about two swimmers from Syria, after the civil war started the family traveled all around the country to places that haven't been affected by war yet, after Syria was not a safe place to stay the two girls and their family went to Lebanon then Turkey and then paid smugglers to take them to Greece, on their first attempt to leave turkey and go to Greece the Turkish coast guard brought their boat back, on the second attempt the boat started filling up with water so they threw some luggage out but that still didn't help, so the two sisters jumped out of the boat to make it lighter, since they knew they could swim they were safe, they held on to ropes for three hours that were connected to the boat until they reached the Greek island of Lesbos, later they Made it to Austria then Germany, today they swim on a swim team in Germany called wasserfreunde 04.
Sorry for no new posts about the furry fandom lately I was busy over thanksgiving break I dont really have anything to post about the furry fandom right now so I will post about some of the things that I did during thanksgiving break.
on Wednesday after school I went down to the Mackinaw bridge and spent the night
On Thursday i went down to Detroit to spent the rest of Thanksgiving break with my Aunt, Uncle, and Cousins. For dinner the rest of my family from Detroit came to my Aunt and Uncles house.
On Friday i went to my grandpas funereal (My grandpa, Joe Komarzec died on November, 18, 2015) and then I went to big lunch after the funereal.
On Thursday my Cousins and i went to an indoor trampoline park called Air Time it had trampolines on the wall and a area where you could play doge ball on trampolines and a place where you could play basketball on a trampoline also this place had a foam pit, Air Time is a awesome place, I wish that I would've wore my fursuit.
On Friday I went home a long 8 hours in the car
I forgot to mention that I brought my fursuit with me i freaked some of my cousins I told them about the furry fandom, one cousin was a little bit werided out but the others thought the furry fandom was cool.
In the furry fandom furries make fursuits, art, and more cool stuff, they work very hard to make these things, but sometimes in the furry fandom art that looks very amazing is used not only by the person who made it but art thefts.
Art thefts are all over the furry fandom on lots of websites such as Instagram and deviantart, art thefts in the furry fandom take others art and usually post a picture of the art and claim it theirs, sometimes art thefts are underage furries around the ages 9-12 who don't understand art theft, and just want some attention, but sometimes furries who are adults are art the fits doing things such as tracing art or recoloring art and claiming it theirs.
This rarely happens and I think it has happened about 2 or 3 times, but sometimes art thefts in the furry fandom steal a fursuit. This also barely happens, but but sometimes a furry makes a fursuit of a fursona that is not theirs.
These are all examples of art theft in the furry fandom, if you see art theft it is best to inform the original artist right away. If your art is being stolen tell them to stop if they didn't stop ask for help from other furries who have had their art stolen in the past, they might be able to help, whatever you do don't start drama attention is what art thefits are looking for and if you give them what they want they will continue.
