Thought I would start a thread about keeping cool in a fursuit. I know there are many good
ideas scattered in other threads, but perhaps others can post cooling ideas here as well.
I don't have any real experience with making or cooling a suit. But here are a few ideas I feel
should or might be helpful.
I am sure others have incorporated most of them, but it doesn't hurt to see them again.
Install a fan in the top of the head. Small computer fans are quiet lightwieght and efficient. Then
you can put a colored screen over it. Perhaps some loose fur to hide it if needed.
Keep the head lightweight. Wire under structure can make it light and strong.
Use fine netting or screen in the mouth for good air flow and seeing. Same
for eyes if it doesn't detract from the fursuit appearance.
Use colored netting under the arms, tail, neck, and anywhere else it won't be noticable.
Under clothing should be dark or a similar color of the fur so it won't really show through
Netted flaps in discreet areas should help too.
A loose suit fit should allow more air to move. If you need padding use something that won't
block air circulation where possible.
I am sure there are many more good ideas. Post if you like.
