New Rat Costume (Partial Fursuit) [Nov. 22nd, 2011|11:50 pm]
Nicodemus
Thanks to help from Kit and Trey, I got some nice pictures of the rat costume that I completed for Halloween!

This is Hazrat. I believe it was Uck that came up with that name, based on the biohazard raver goggles. Apologies to my fursuit friend, Hazmat, for any potential confusion. I'm still debating whether I should say that's his last name and his first name is Ikan. :)

Here are a few pics to give you an idea, with more in the gallery. It's a partial fursuit: head, paws with arms, tail (attached to customized pants). But I think it works well for the character.

He should show up at FC, his first con. Overall, I'm quite pleased with how he turned out. Hope ya like him! :)

Thanks! T-shirt was from a collection over here. Seemed very appropriate. :)

Looks awesome! :-) Certainly appears like it would be comfortable enough to wear around for a while. He also has cuddleability, which is important for any rat!

Thankee. :) Yes, one of the goals was to have an easy (well, easier) character to wear around cons and to dances.

Seconded!

He turned out really well, and I love the side profile angles in that one pic. You're making me want to work on another suit, but I haven't decided what yet! So many cool things to choose from....

Thanks. Okay, okay. He'll be Ikan Hazrat. :D (Sounds vaguely Persian? Nah, don't think I can pass that off. He must be of Memish descent.)

Wasn't modeling on him but, well, if you want a cartoony rat there are going to definitely be some similarities. :)

He's got tons of personality - really nice work! Cute name, too.

But I think we're all wondering what your smallest critic thinks. ;)

She says "Yay!"

As for Timothy? "Daddy rat!"

Ikan looks great! Will you be showing him off at Masquerade?

Probably not. I've more or less retired from showing in the Masquerade. (Unless I do a full costume that's really unusual and would show well. Nothing against masquerades, you understand.) Also, I find I'm usually booked in events opposite rehearsals or the actual show at FC.

Thank you! First time doing perspective eyes (beyond some concept tests). Came out pretty well.

Awesome work! After hearing about this idea in its early stages as a WIP it's neat to see the finished product :)

Very nice! You gotta go with Ikan Hazrat! That's too good not to use.
