For those of us who always secretly wished we lived in the Bojack Horseman universe.

Wow. I wish these were remotely in my budget.

I discovered inadvertently some years back that I have an animal-headed human (1st edition D&D rakshasa?) kink.

I’ll stick with normal fursuit makers.

…you mean furries?

Oh wait, you mean secretly … never mind.

This’ll be great for Wicker Man LARPing


#7

So that’s where Man With a Mission get their heads.

If only I had a few grand extra lying around, one of those would be spectacular for handing out Halloween candy!


#9

Has anyone here tried one on? How’s the view from the inside?
(Asking for, uh, me!)

They were doing it wrong. They hadn’t asked the Japanese for a furry suit.

Story of O?

I used to have a costume bear’s head that I bought 30 years ago at my university theater department’s annual costume sale, from productions they put on in previous years and were retiring. It was super cheap and well-made, using salvaged and donated fur pieces. The synthetic furs available now are really nice though.

I used to be part of some online puppetry forums and email groups, and many people also made masks and built mascot heads, much like these. I never thought there would be a big market for them though. I guess I don’t move in the right circles to be aware of the demand for them.
