Some of you may have seen the moving-jaw costume heads being offered online for about $60. First there was that white fox or wolf. Now a reddish-brown wolf and even a white tiger are being offered.
I was able to find some examples of these products in a local store and examine them closely. In this case, the canid masks.
First, keep in mind that these are import costume masks and the quality of the fur is not comparable to fursuit materials. However, these can be instructional to someone interested in fursuit masks and their construction.
It occurred to me that the masks could be customized with different noses, ears, eyes, fur, color. The colors of the masks are basic and easy to match or compliment when making accessories like tails or paws. Online tutorials can provide other ideas.
The masks that I examined, were simply attached to large illustration board placards with nylon tie-wraps so they could be hung on a wall display. So any number of people could have tried them on. There was a mirror nearby after all. So, spraying them with disinfectant, once purchased, is advised. Only four masks were out in the store I visited but they may have had more in stock.
IIRC, the white fox/wolf head mask sold out online last year. Customer comments are a must-read, but being able to view this item personally is the best option in my view.
