Question: What runs on two legs, looks super cute and is yellow?
Answer: A Chocobo!

I fell in love with Chocobos when I was younger and the fascination has never quite gone away! So after watching THE MOST inspiring talk on fursuiting at ALcon 2009, I decided to give it a bloody good go!

I spent weeks shaping and creating my very first head - until my hands were so sore from being burned with the hot glue, and I was so sick of the smell I gave up for a while.

I saw the best base fabric for the head the other day I bought it and went back to making the lil cutie!

So here, for your perusal, is my Chocobo head! Still unfinished (have yet to fur and make reins)!

Um, i've actually no idea what it is called! But it is like a fine netting stuff... im really bad at explaining! But i had to get like, 1/4m of it - i have a fair bit left over. It costs about £14 a m so i dont wanna throw it away! But i dont think i'll use it again for anything else. So if you want something black for your yoshi for the eyes or anything, let me know and i'll post it to you Smile

Ive no idea why - its a bit ridiculous really! Hence why I only got 1/4m! Nah I dont mind at all Very Happy I'd rather it go to good use rather than sat in a drawer never to be used again! Smile Thanks hun ^^

The ALMOST finished Chocobo head. Has been a long time coming to be honest! Very Happy
The eyes need finishing - blue and white detail to be done - but other than that, here we are! I also have used two different colour feathers in the front to give it a better look - it just isn't too well reflected in photos! The head will be making an appearance at ALcon for anyone who wants to see it in person :3

Hehe as I said on facebook WOW!
I am soooo impressed and just a little jealous Wink
Looks absolutely amazing Smile
Would be great if you could put a step-by-step of how you made it onto the furry section, you crafted it alot like a furry head right?
