|What can I say? I love rabbits! I was looking for a bipedal fur suit to use a pair of digitigrade stilts with and here she is! I main reason I chose her is the steepness of the digitigrade leg which makes her excellent for a stilted suit.|
With a stilted suit comes a lot of different problems. One of which is weight distribution which for me makes it doubly important to have a light fursuit head with good vision. To this end I'm going to be making a mesh head to minimize weight.
I'm also going to be making mesh fists/arms to create her massive fists! They will also be useful for catching me if I lose balance on the stilts.

Toe Supports (Posted 2nd January 2013)
Toe supports have been re-made tonight. We really need to get them right so that I don't want to collapse to the floor from the pain in my toes!
We're hoping that the extended length of the toe caps will stop the problem.
I'll see if I can try taking them out in the next couple of days if the new supports work (and if it isn't too rainy!).
Digitigrade Stilts 1 (Posted 11th December 2012)
We tried on the digitigrade stilts yesterday. We need to do some adjustments to the tension, redo the thigh supports and work out why the left toe support is painful but really - minor inconveniences!
I need to work out the foot angle I need... aaand to work out how to walk on them. One guy said it should take about an hour to get the gist of walking on them. I'm doubtful. They are very tiring to wear.
