Balto's fursuit
« on: August 28, 2006, 03:56:50 pm »
I have just updated my online gallery to add pictures of Balto's costume, for which I made the character design, back in 2005. The costume was built by Brokken-T-Wolf and completed recently.

Character design

The costume itself

Balto took it to the Eurofurence XII held this year in Nuremberg, where he wore it for the first time in public

Thank you

The suits cool but I do like the artwork better. The suit came out a big toonier.

You did the character sketch for the anteater costume?  ':shock:' Wow, I never knew. Cool concept I must say. I always look forward to seeing new and unique fursuits and designs for fursuits. '<img'> Though I am kinda wondering how the person sees out of the neck area of the suit. Must be a bit difficult I would think. Here's the link to Brokken's site if anyone is interested:

Yes I worked on it back in 2005: the anteater was actually shown in public for the first time at Anthrocon 2005. If I remember correctly, there is a small "meshed" area on the neck, to allow vision. I hope to get more requests for character design for costumes in the future. Thank you for your interest.
