What the hell is that? Anyway, your answer is wrong.

No need to guess anymore, folks. At the rate this coronavirus keeps getting worse and the U.S. economic situation also not doing well, the odds of getting a new fursuit are pretty slim.  :(

There were a few skull dogs at the convention I went to last year.
Were kinda neat.  The girl who was one  was so fun,  the scary aspect of the skull was lost on me and others.  She started carrying a sign that said " I'm not cute".


Well Kobuk, maybe ill give you mine.  I'm probably never going to use it...
And you never know,  you might get your new one some day, sooner than you think.
Besides,  making one,  is what the whole thing is about.  I wished I had made mine.   ;)

No, you keep yours. You never know when you might use it. ;) It might come in handy some day.

Well, the design (and name) for my next suit may have just been sunk. :(  *ears droop*
I saw on DeviantArt a person's fursona sketch of exactly (or almost exactly) the same thing I had planned. Though their sketch was from 2017 or so. The similarity between their design and mine is like 90% to 95%.  :o

Back to the drawing board.

Skull dogs are just simply dogs or other animals that show their skull. I have some skull animals. Jester(The skull dog) Blossom, a possum, three windigo, and a skull kitten.

Never give up Kabuk! How about this. A hybrid of all three aliens from "Plan 9 from Outer Space" and an undisclosed puppy. No one in their right mind would thing of that.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

Thanks, but no thanks. I already know what I want.

It's a real bummer someone else had the same idea as you. With the fandom's continued growth I imagine this will happen a to a lot of folks.

I haven't completely given up. At least, not yet. I'm still trying to hold out some hope. It just means that I'm going to have to be a bit more creative in my design. But how, I don't know when the design is already 100% finalized and I don't want to change it anymore.
Other than the coronavirus and the economy getting in the way, there's a few other roadblocks like:
a) I have nobody near me to help with creating a duct tape dummy.
b) I don't know of any furs in my area. No groups, meets, etc. Nobody to ask questions, get help, etc.
c) I have no idea who I'll choose to make the suit. I've been "out of the loop" so to speak on keeping up to date with fursuit knowledge, fursuit makers, etc.

1. Primary fursuit that I've been hinting about throughout this thread is now on the "back burner" so to speak. Design is 100% finalized though.

2. Plans for a secondary Kobuk 2.0 fursuit are moving along at a snail's pace. Realllllly slow.  :P Don't have much of anything figured out for a design.

3. 3rd design is for a wolf suit. But the trick is finding if the faux fur exists for the main color I have in mind. The secondary color for additional highlights would be like a silver. Name of character is figured out. Suit might be digitigrade, but not sure? Possibly a 50/50 toony/semi-real mix.

So..........still hoping for #1.
If #1 doesn't work, then move on to #3.
#2 is the last option I'll consider.

 Meetup app might turn up some furry clubs near you for the dtd help. Etc.

After I did one... yes... by myself...i seriously do not recommend it. I became stuck and had an emergency.  I fell down, unable to move, but was able to wiggle to get scissors.  I cut myself out.  I almost passed out.  Never again!!

Seriously, do you have someone you trust enough to have make a dtd??  I just up and told my neighbor lady that I needed help.   I told her I was going to be at a renaissance faire as an animal,  and I needed a form.

Turns out my neighbor used to do cos play costume making!! Thus she knew what a duct tape dummy was,  she just called it a custom fit dress makers dummy.  She did it all in 4 hours with measurements.  She guessed it was for furry. Ya know for a 72 year old lady,  she knew things that I didn't expect her to ( like furry). But then again she also made costumes for strippers, so, maybe she knew more than I did about underground culture stuff?


 Hey,  I'd do it for you,  but I'm here... sorry.  But seriously,  if you ask,  you might get someone who can help, although not a fur. once that dtd is done,  you are set!

Use the stimulus to get clockwork creature to make Kobuk 2.0!!

Clockwork Creature is nice, but they are wayyyyyyyyyy expensive. Probably need a winning lottery ticket just to afford them. And No, I wouldn't have the Kobuk 2.0 suit made by them. The wolf suit, maybe.

 What about a big stuffed plushie husky?  That would be cute!

I saw many suits at my one and only convention.  I loved them all.  I think sometimes there is too much focus on everything being 100% original.   In human world,  there are people who dress similar,  look similar,  sounds similar,  drive similar cars. I say that because you mentioned how what you wanted was already done.   So do it,  make it different enough,  then get it made!!

I bet a great way to look more "original" is simply to accessorize!

You could use a back pack that is a can of dew.
A prop that signifies something about you. Hats, ties,  harnesses, 

I saw a very cute simple white wolfress and, well,  I'll just say I wish I could have taken her home.. :-[ :-[
Nothing unique or special really to speak of. But it worked.

You have no idea how close to reality that almost got made. Almost.  :(
