Duct Tape dummy?
We need a DTD or duct tape dummy of your body to be able to build the costume. Duct tape dummies are exact replicas of your body which makes it easier for us to be able to build a costume that fits you accurately.
How do you take care of the costume?
A quick guide on how to care for your Fursuit
Head cleaning can be done by spraying or wiping the inside with antimicrobial spray or alcohol based wet wipes. Please allow the head to be completely dry before storing after cleaning. Avoid alcohol sprays on the outside of the costume head as it can fade the paint on the eyes or the airbrushing itself. Please do not submerge in water and do not put them in the washing machine. Never place a head in a dryer.
Bodies can be machine washed, cold water, delicate. Never use bleach only use color safe detergent. You can use softener but it's not a necessity. Bodies should always be air dried in front of a fan (fan will help speed the process). Never place them in a dryer or use heat as it will burn the fabric.
If your body is heavily airbrushed , flip the body inside out and hand wash in a tub with laundry detergent (cold water only). This will help keep the airbrushing on the fur for longer. Hang the body to dry in front of a fan.
Both can be machine washed on delicate, cold water and air dried. Never place in the dryer. To avoid the claws getting scratched or chipped put the paws in pillow cases or a bag that can be washed to avoid it affecting the claws. Do not use bleach or place in the dryer.
Machine washed, cold, no bleach, color safe detergent and air dry.
We use Folex to remove stains on fursuits. Take in mind Folex is a really strong carpet cleaner and will remove any and most airbrushing as well. If you are wanting to clean an area please be careful when spraying the affected area and read the instructions on how to properly use it.
