Hello!





Dyeing fur with acrylics - my way
fursuit, ocean wolf

I know there are already tutorials out there for colouring fur with acrylic paint, but I've started using a somewhat different method that I think is really easy and quicker than some others! So, I wanted to share it with the community. My method works well if you have a lot of area to cover, or many pieces that all have to match.

CONVENTION HIGHLIGHTS


-Having Captain Buck Rabbit (newest fursuit I've made) ready to show up at the con! Not 100% yet, but who is?!
-The Dance competition. More like recorder-tooting competition, as one congoer put it! Many fursuiters dancing, many great moves pulled, mainly Theron's shuffling and RL's corgi twerking, as I seem to recall! RECORDER DROPS awwwww yeeahhhh.
-Essh randomly being called up to judge the dance comp!  "RUSSIAN JUDGE" while I held his Timmy's awwww yeeea- no.
-TURNING A MUNDANE INTO A FURRY - beginning of con: what is this, these people are weird but okay (buys a one-day pass). End of day: I WANT 100 FURSUITERS TO LAY ON TOP OF ME AND TOUCH ME ALL AT ONCEEEEEE
-Meeting Shnellz there after SEVEN YEARS OF NOT SEEING EACH OTHER A'PLEASE.
-A'please.
-Drunk-drawing WHILE IN FURSUIT while wearing my fursuit for SEVEN HOURS on Saturday night awww yeeeaahhhh. Meeting ALANA and getting to stay overnight in a sweet awesome hotel room there (THANK YOU BULLDOG CAL) oHGod A'please.
-Dancing in fursuit, can't see anything through the fog and lights. Random person comes up and gets all up in my grill dancing in my face. STILL DON'T KNOW WHO
-Having Univaded Fox test out DANCE PICTURES of me at the dance :D
-Getting ART OF KAI for the first time (okay, second time) ever: by Sixel and Onnonoko: :D  ((NEXT UP, Etuix and Nico))
-Doing FREE ART for Essh, Koya, Ryluen, and Sevrin (SHH IT'S A SURPRISE)

Howloween 2013... plus general updates
fursuit, ocean wolf

SO I FIGURED there really ought to be a place I can put my thoughts, updates, etc. since I've joined the Vancouver furry community. In that regard I've decided to unearth my Livejournal and use it for its intended purpose (for once).

This is Kai speaking! Coastal grey wolf, moved to Vancouver in August.
My username here is old, but maybe you can tell from the icon. Maybe not. I'm still new around here. I'll be changing the username eventually, but not until I've got nothing better to spend the $15 on :P


HOWLOWEEN

Was actually my first furry con. Although I know it's not TECHNICALLY a convention, as nobody calls it that. But it's held in a hotel so my brain classifies it as a con. I had a great time there, and it's really making me look forward to VancouFur 2014 since it's hosted in the same hotel (pool and hot tub, here I come) :D

I met a bunch of furs there I had only known a little so far (Kuviare, Ja'Nathun, Kowoto, Bloopy, Jack, Temrin)
As well as chatting with some totally new to me (Haley, Errol and Keianna, Essh, Arrea, Sniffum, Choco, Marfles, Duffy, Daiten Puma, Selkit, Loial)
Meeting some greats of the local community (Scribblefox, Lace, Aphinity, Akonite)
And talking fursuit business with Professor Whovianart, Bella FluffyPuppy, and Essh.

Many extra thanks to the Professor for providing my transportation to various places over the two days, plus introducing me to more people than I can remember (sorry!). Apologies if I missed your name here, there were like 200 furries at this thing and my mind was all over the place.

Some highlights:
Drawing for Nath, Bella, Sniffum, and Choco; being accosted by a friendly Anon in the hallway!! "You're an artist, right?" - sorry buddy, I still don't recall your name - fursuit dancing in an AWESOME light/fog show; not getting trampled in the Fursuit Games, hunting down room parties until 4 am (including the time change!) and paying for it later, conking out in the Professor's van... then going to see Errol's very nifty workshop!

I will be at VancouFur 2014, as well as VCON (already confirmed, yeaahhh!) and I'll continue to scope out further events on the BC Furries board. See you around!

First head finished!

I am really excited to be finally posting this, since it's been in the making for a long time - two years to be exact! It's come a long way from its humble foam shell beginnings, and hopefully I've picked up enough skills along the way to allow my next head to be made a bit more quickly.



Long post and lots of pictures under the cutCollapse )

Aargh!

Oh my god it's amazing

My mom just dropped off a bunch of stuff she cleaned out of my great-aunt's house for me. I got a bike (which I am so happy about!) but it needs to have all its rubber parts replaced. But anyway...

This was also in there.

GIANT FANCYFEAST 80'S SWEATER OF DOOM!

I think I'll turn it into a Cheshire cat, and sew the face onto a different shirt, eventually.
