Puck - Final Fantasy IX

Complete

Amecon 2016

Showcased 12th September 2016 What is this?


 


Well, the mahoosive FFIX group wasn't so mahoosive in the end XD But I still had alot of fun with everyone who did manage to get their cosplays done :D

This cosplay was alot of work! My first venture into fursuits (even though it's only a partial? If you can even call it that!) I really wanted to do a moving jaw but in the end didn't have time and just had to make it solid instead. This is a mistake I won't be making again as I couldn't really breathe in the thing XD I couldn't wear it for more than about 5 minutes at a time ahaha oTL

I also need help to get in and out of the head and gloves lmao. Thank you to all those who helped me in this mammoth task c:

Thank you so much for the showcase it's such an honor and it really makes all of the hard work worth it X3

Making the feet: Part 3

I now have rat feet! Hurray! I now have to make a pattern for them so I can cover them in the Minky >_< I first covered my foot in masking tape, but it doesn't stick too well and will be easier to cut off in a minute. I then covered the masking tape in duct tape so that I have something sturdy to work with! A long while later I've covered my entire foot and got the tape into all the awkward places. TBH I think I wrapped my foot too tight but HEY HO! I then marked where I wanted all of my seam lines to be. there was more than I wanted TBH but it couldn't be helped. I then cut it all off! And made several holes in my socks in the process c: I'd also highly suggest you have arrows pointing where you want your fur pointing. Do it while you've still got the tape on your foot as it's easier to visualise :) And write on all of your pattern peices so you know which bit is which if it got complex like mine did or you're going to have a bad time!!

Making the feet: Part 2

I do have photos of the steps I explain here, but I can't be bothered to get them off my phone right now. I'll change the photo another time okay? XD Right, so we've cut out the basic toe shape. You need to refine it! Just keep trimming away at it. TBH I probably craved mine alot more than most would, but that's for the sole reason that I'm not really using proper fur to cover my toes, I'm using Minky fabric (you know the stuff on TY Beanie Babies? That stuff). Fur would be very forgiving if the foam was a bit more blocky but Minky is veeeery short fur so I don't have that luxury! Anyway, we've carved the toes! I next cut the bottom of the toes off so that I could place them on MY toes. I tried to cut so they sat nicely on my toes but it's hard to get an exact match :P Once I was happy how they looked/positioned/whatever else I hot glued them onto the sock! While I was still wearing the sock! Because you know, otherwise i'd probably glue them in the wrong place >_>

Making the feet: Part 1

I really wanted to do right by Puck and since it appears that no one else has even cosplayed him it made my inital research somewhat difficult! I like to have another cosplayer to measure myself against. Instead I've been looking at Freya cosplays since her and Puck are both rat people :P Not many had feet I liked though so after some more research I decided to make something called "sock paws". You make paws out of foam and glue them to some socks and it gives you alot of control over them. It seemed really neat to me so I'm going for that option! :D So, we start off with buying some upholstery foam, obviously! I got the high density stuff, only for the sole reason fur suit tutorials appear to use blue foam >_> I drew out a pattern for a toe (on Illustrator, as I do), printed it out and drew it on the foam and began cutting! I did this 4 times (for 4 toes, of course) and shaped them with scissors by carefully carving bits off :)
