SHIBA GIRL 2012 / 2014
The "original" suit is to the left which I made for myself. It was my first ever mascot costume built in 2012. What I made was the head, gloves, and tail. The eyes are also built to "follow" the viewer based on where they're standing.
DreamVision Creations made the claws, paw-pads, and nose. I purchased the parts from them and installed them myself.
In 2014 the parts were refurbished, as seen above, and sold to a new owner. On the head I added eyebrows and replaced the ears, hair, nose, and tongue. I also lined the inside which cannot be seen from the photos. For the paws I removed the paw-pads and claws for comfort reasons.
To create this head, I used upholstery foam for the base, luxury fashion furs, felt, fleece, and hot glue. I also purchased DreamVision Creation resin claws, resin nose, and silicon paw-pads.
