10:29 am - Megaplex & Update/Fur Supply
So Megaplex is less than two weeks, who all will I see there? :)

Starting to get excited for the con, and I'll be helping out on a couple panels as well. Unfortunately I won't be able to be there the entire weekend, just Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday most likely, since suit work takes precedence and there are still several to wrap up this month.

As most makers have likewise been experiencing problems with manufacturer delay with fur, so have we to a degree. We were waiting for several bolts to come in after AC, and are still waiting on a couple more shipments although we now finally have most everything back in stock. :) There was a supply issue following the Japan earthquake, Monterey Mills was not receiving the fiber used to make the fur during that time, so certain colors became unavailable. We keep a pretty large stock of fur on hand (an entire room of it, pretty much wall to wall fur on rolls and shelved.) But the main colors we use the most are white/black, these get used somewhere on almost every suit, and they were unavailable for a few months from the manufacturer along with several other commonly used colors. We apologize if there are any delays created from this, but it was a situation pretty much out of anyone's control caused by the disasters in Japan.

I'll also be posting one of our personal suits up for auction soon, just need to put the listing together, and that will most likely be up by tonight. Link and info will be posted here. :)

current mood: busy

8:48 am - Email was hacked, getting them secured. Please read.
This morning my Lacybarnett@yahoo and Lacybarnett@gmail accounts were hacked, and a mass email was sent out to all my contacts asking for money to be sent via western union to the UK.

This email is NOT from us. We are not stranded in the UK, please ignore this email.

Good news is we have both the email accounts back already, should be secured this time and I'm keeping my fingers crossed it never happens again.

As a general heads up, we would never mass email all of our contacts and ask for help even if we were stranded. We have our family and even close friends that we would contact directly if a situation like that arose. So in case this ever happens again, please keep in mind we would never ask for help in a mass email.

- Lacy

9:47 am - Fursuiting.com Photoshoot at FWA!
A few of you have asked me if we will be doing a photoshoot of our work this year, and yes, we will be! :) Now that I have a better idea of the schedule and what's up, here's the info:

Fursuiting.com / Fursuits by Lacy & Nick Photoshoot will immediately follow the fursuit parade. Look for us as we will both be in suit for the parade and will do the group photo right after.

Time: SATURDAY 2:30 - 3:00 PM - If you are in the parade watch for us in suit, as we'll be hanging around and waiting to gather everyone

Today is going to be spent wrapping up a few final touches on suits, and then we'll work on getting photos later today of all the new suits. We'll be posting those up after the con.

I'm excited, we'll see all of you going to FWA very soon! :D

9:12 am - FWA right around the corner
With FWA about a week away for us, thought I'd post a little update with what is going on. :)

We'll be at FWA Thurs-Sun, and we will have a table in the dealer's room this year, so feel free to drop by and say hi. We'll have some fursuit parts for sale, T-shirts, Hoodies, and possibly a couple other things as well.

We'll be taking part in quite a few panels this year, including:

- Meet the GOH
- Fursuit Body Construction
- Fursuit Head Construction
- Fursuit Meet and Greet

So if we aren't doing a panel, we'll be at our table or running around in suit for the most part.

Several new suits will be debuting at the con, probably won't be posting up any images here until after the con, so if you're there you will see. :D And if you aren't there, you'll still see, just a little bit later. :)

Looking forward to the fun times ahead!

- Lacy & Nick

12:52 pm - Almost all caught up - Hodari Lion & HowlieTigerpaw

Really close to actually catching LJ up on all the suits we've made/didn't post yet over here. Still a few more to go after this. I post them more punctually from the time they're actually completed on FA, since it's a bit quicker to handle the submission process and all that, but realize sometimes it's nice to read LJ instead.

So, one is a Lion suit for Hodari. Mane took some extra time, but all in all very pleased with how he turned out. :) And the second head is a version 2/remake for a customer that had his original head stolen/lost, but still had his bodysuit and other parts we had built for him. Same design, just in our more updated style/look from the original.

It's Sunday, but doesn't mean a rest day for us, as I'll be working on a head base and Nick should be finishing up some padding on another suit as well. Working on quite a few new things that will be done in time for FWA.

9:58 am - More suits. :) And back from FC.
FC was fun, had a great time and a totally new experience selling as a dealer this year. After the con we took a couple days to hang out with friends/go site seeing, and they were gracious enough to let us stay with them, thanks to everyone that made it a lot of fun this year. It went by in a total blur, but in a good way. :)

We'll probably keep doing the dealer thing at least at some cons in the future, going to try to have more to offer at the table. We'll have a table at FWA this year as well. Seems like a great way to talk to people, especially looking forward to AC since even in past years I think we spent more time in the dealers room than in suit. Should be good times!

I still have quite a few suits to post up over here, so to keep it rolling, here's a couple we finished in the last couple months. A small little fox for SkyFox we didn't have a model to fit, so took a couple floor pics to show that it is indeed a full-suit (floor pics are a bit strange, but nonetheless, it shows it exists.) And also a partial for Stryker Wolf, sent off in time for MidFur in Australia, he's quite the brightly colored guy.

12:21 am - FC here we go!
Finally done packing everything, and Nick and I will soon be FC bound.

We have a table in the Marketplace this year (we're Fursuiting.com in the dealer/con map), so feel free to come stop by, say hi, take a peek at what we'll have up for sale. :) We plan to have hand paws in a variety of colors (standard colors like black and white, as well as quite a few more unique sets), feet paws, tails, as well as t-shirts.

Few new suits will be debuting at the con, and if I have time I'll post pics before we arrive, but most likely pics of all the new suits will be up soon as we return.

We'll see quite a few of you there!

- Lacy

11:18 am - Cold weather Critters - And Happy New Year! :)

Polar Bear and a Puffin head we finished up recently. Just seemed appropriate to post them together, since they are cold weather critters to match this cold weather we've been having here and there.

Hope everyone also had a Happy New Year! Worked all day new years day, will be working as usual today as well. Getting a lot done and will be several new things to show at FC a little later on this month. A bit more on that later. :)

10:17 am - High time I updated LJ :) - Wolf Collab
It's been a little while since I posted new suits over on LJ, and I think it's high time I got back to it. Over the next few days I'll be showing a new suit a day, for about the next week or so, unless I cave and post more than one a day, which I sometimes tend to do. :P

This was a fun side project LV and I both worked on. The head base was done by MixedCandy, and I furred and finished out the head. We wanted something fun and easy to run around in, easy to take places for bowling and small events. :) It's just a partial for now, but will possibly change that in the future if time allows.

More suits tomorrow. :)

10:45 am - Emails & Commission Status
We were away this past week until day before yesterday (November 7) so we are catching up on all emails/notes we received while gone. If you sent in for a quote or asked a question during this time, we'll be getting back to you either today or tomorrow as we get caught back up and back to work. :) I noticed today some quotes didn't get the autoreply we had setup, so in case you were waiting that is what has been going on.

Just as an update, we are currently full until late 2011 (VERY few openings left) - 2012 completions.

9:34 pm - Halloweeeen!

How our yard looks at the moment, got most of the decorations up but might add a couple more things towards the end of the month. Going to be a busy month; lots of suits to be finished up, lots of parties, lots of being in costume. I'm hopeful for lots of fun. :)

11:01 am - Kiwaku Fox & Pawpet Show

Gallery: http://lacy.timduru.org/gallery.php?a=folder&id=160

Little young fox character for Kiwaku we finished up before RF. :)

And, a month or so ago (where does the time go?) we headed down to the Pawpet show and subservient Blondy and Mao made an appearance along with Cake. :) Video of all three of the suits in action:

Pawpet show was definitely a blast, thanks to Yappy and the rest of the crew for having us down. :D We had a great time!

10:06 pm - New Suits and general update

Few new suits we recently finished up, Deoloup, Purple Vixen, and Arina Canine. Some different features on each, Deoloup sports ab/pec muscle padding as well as digitigrade legs. The Purple Vixen includes chest padding for a more feminine appearance. And lastly, Arina has digitigrade leg padding. Lots of interesting colors being worked with as of late. I think Deoloup and the Purple Vixen are an interesting contrast, since although they are similar shades of color (altogether about 5 different types of Purple/Lavender fur used between the two suits), the characters themselves are quite different. :)

The Galleries:
Deoloup: http://lacy.timduru.org/gallery.php?a=folder&id=157
Purple Vixen: http://lacy.timduru.org/gallery.php?a=folder&id=158
Arina: http://lacy.timduru.org/gallery.php?a=folder&id=159

We're working on quite a few new suits at the moment. Basically finished up a little White Fox today for Kiwaku which we'll be taking pics of tomorrow or Tuesday, and nearly done with an Otter and Puffin as well as a secret suit. Going to have lots of new stuff to post up shortly. We've already started working on a few suits that will be finished up for FurFright and MFF completions as well, lots of head bases being started and sitting on the work table at the moment as we tackle a few at a time. There's basically something in every stage of progress in case we're feeling particularly inspired to work on something at a certain point in construction. :)

current mood: full

11:39 pm

The head is lightly used (worn only a few times) and was built by OneFurAll Studios/Scribble Fox; the body, hands, feet, and tail are brand new (never worn except for auction photos) and were built by Fursuits by Lacy & Nick. Head features 3D follow me eyes, which means the eyes appear to always be looking at the viewer. Head also features a fully moving jaw which is very sensitive and moves when you open and close your mouth. Very comfortable to wear and easy to breathe. You see out the eyes (great vision) and breathe out the mouth. Hand paws are seperate and include black pawpads. Feet are built on slippers, very soft and comfortable, fit a max size 13 mens. The bottoms of the feet are hard soles for versatile indoor and outdoor wear. The tail is worn via a belt loop, and can be worn seperately from the rest of the costume if desired.

Measurements for this costume:
- Heads fits a maximum size 24" circumference (most all heads)
- Max height is 6'1" tall
- Chest maximum: 45"
- Waist maximum: 43"
- Hips maximum: 47"
- Shoe maximum size 13 US Mens


Any questions? Please message us through eBay or email us directly at Sales@fursuiting.com. Thanks and good luck!

11:45 am - Cake & Dr. Kesten
Been basically non-stop busy since AC, seems we hop from one busy time of the year right into another. Just a couple suits we finished up over the last month, brand new Cake v.2 and a partial for Dr. Kesten.

Just shipped out a couple other suits for EF earlier this week, pictures of those will be up shortly as we're putting finishing touches on a suit for Arina, probably pics of her later on this week also. :)

current mood: stupid busy
