I wonder, how would one make a costume of Foxy from Five Nights at Freddy's Foxy Emoticon Head - Five Nights at Freddy's

Since Foxy has a boxy head, I'd use a stiffer foam or even embroidery mesh as a base.

What about Freddy? o:

I think it would work for him too. Since Freddy's head is boxier, it might be even easier.

I kind of want to see how your mask turns out, if you make it. I've never played the game, since it's not for Macs, but I love the creepy characters :D

This is brilliant!

I have two questions though.

I think you said it was called an Armature (or as I call it, the head and shoulders block) Where do you get them at? How much are they?

I have a foam head here, but I don't think it'll work that great when trying to make a fursuit head, it's very light and falls over easily.

and yeah, the head form from monster makers is best for making a mask on- it's specifically made for that purpose and is far more accurate than a Styrofoam wig head. :) it's a worthy investment

I think I'll get one, My friend wants to make her own fursuit and I want to make one too. Also I want to buy one. :3

I only use my foam head for holding my hats on, haha

The under-armature (the form i build the mask armature around) is a hard foam head form made specifically for mask making. It's sold at monstermakers.com for about $60.

also, shorter muzzles are more difficult to have the moving jaw effect on. I noticed though that every effective short-muzzle moving jaw has the nose pointed at a lower angle.

It's pretty hard to fix if you already furred it? Also, I take the head off the base several times while it's in the foaming stage and test it out on my actual head to see how things work- checking for vision, jaw movement, comfort and overall proportion. That's what I would suggest in the future :)
