Description
I'm currently in the process of making a Fluttershy fursuit. Hopefully she will also be wearing armour, as she was shown wearing a suit of armour in the 1st/2nd episode of season 3. I wanted to make this as a fursuit cuz I love Fluttershy, and when I saw her in the armour, I just really wanted to do a fursuit of her more and include armour too.

If she will be wearing armour, it will be real aluminium armour. My dad makes armour for films (he had a stand at the October 2011 Expo once) and he is happy to help with this project.

I also plan to have changeable mane, if that makes sense. For example, when Fluttershy wears the helmet with her armour, her mane goes up with it, and when I don't want to wear the armour, I can add her usual normal hair.. That sounds a bit strange but idk how else to word it x\

I've been hoping somebody might do the armour versions. It's really interesting to read about your dad doing armour for movies and such, I think I remember seeing him that October. Good luck with it all!

Fluttershy will debut at MCM 2013! (Posted 24th May 2013)

Guys.

The Fluttershy fursuit is about 95% finished.

omfg you don’t believe how fucking proud and amazed and just afgsdfd I am at nearing completion of this damn project.

Just need to make the mane, finish off the bottom of the legs, making the nose and cutie mark and then it’s finished.

AND ALSO.

THE ARMOUR IS COMPLETE.

I didn’t think it would, but my dad has been working so hard to try and get it done in time and omg I am so proud of him. It looks fucking amazing. Like seriously I just want to cry.

I’ve got photos of me wearing the whole thing with the armour, but I’m not sure whether to upload it yet cuz it’s looking a bit scruffy cuz I rushed putting it on and also it’s unfinished so yeah I don’t think I will until I’ve completely finished it.

But yeah. It’s going to get done in time for the expo :D

Bad news. (Posted 20th May 2013)

Unfortunately, Fluttershy won't be appearing at the may 2013 London Expo, as she is still incomplete ):
I still need to work on the mane, tail, hand hooves, wings and armour, and in the space of 4 days, it's not going to be finished ):

But hopefully she'll be done for the October expo in which case if I do go then I'll be taking her :D

I was really looking forward to going to the May expo as Fluttershy, but I guess it can't be helped ):
