Custom Costumes

Let me bring your ideas to life!


Frequently
Asked
Questions

Materials and Construction

Q: What are your fursuits made out of? Do you use real fur?
OMG Pineapples fursuits are made entirely with fake fur. Heads are constructed out of high density upholstery foam, and most padding is made with spandex and polyfill. Other materials I use in my work include vinyl, fleece, minky fabric, various paints, and resin. I do not use any real animal parts in my work.

Q: How durable are your costumes?
Very! Many of my customers have used my work for dancing or other high intensity wear and found their costumes held up perfectly. Most of my work is made with soft materials to avoid any breakable parts, and tested for durability. I aim to make all of my work easy and comfortable to wear and maintain.

Q: Do you need a duct tape dummy for a full fursuit?
I do require duct tape dummies for all full body suits. Here's how to make your own: Duct Tape Dummy Tutorial

Care and Cleaning

Q: How do I wash my costume?
Most pieces can be put in a washing machine and cleaned on a cold water cycle with regular detergent. Stuffed pieces, such as tails or feet, take a long time to dry and are easier to spot clean unless they need a thorough wash. Pieces can be dried either in a no heat tumble setting on a dryer, or by hanging over a fan.

Heads should be spot cleaned with soap or detergent and water on a washcloth. The inside can be sprayed with rubbing alcohol to disinfect it. I recommend wearing an extra balaclava or face mask under the suit head to reduce the amount of sweat absorbed by the head.

Q: How do I store my costume?
Any storage method is fine, however, leaving fur folded and compressed for long periods of time can cause wrinkles in the fibers. Ideally, boy suits should be hung up, and other pieces should be stored so the fur is not compressed.

Q: What is the best way to travel with my costume?
Most fursuit pieces are soft and can be folded or vacuum bagged and put into regular luggage. This includes feet, bodies, hands, tails, padding, etc. My heads can also be folded flat and put in vacuum bags, just be careful not to let the eye plastic bend. If you're concerned about the safety of you head, the best place to carry it is with you while you are traveling if possible.

I strongly recommend a regular, hard sided suitcase for traveling with fursuits. Action packers or other, similar rigid containers can pop open in flight and may be searched more often. Fursuits are very similar to clothes, and do not really need a special luggage.

Commission Information

Q: How do I commission my own costume? How much will my costume cost?
The basic prices for custom work are listed here. I am not always open for custom work, however I do post information regarding commission openings on a variety of social media, including twitter, tumblr, furaffinity, and weasyl.

Q: When do you open for commissions?
I typically open for commissions every 4 - 6 months. I take a few months' worth of work at a time and open for the next round of projects a month before I finish previous work. Specific opening dates will vary, as each project is unique and it can be difficult to perfectly predict when I will be finished with each round of projects.

Q: How long will my costume take to make?
Wait times will vary based on my personal work load and where your project is in my work queue. Individual customers will be given time lines of their projects with estimated completion time. I aim to keep the wait time between deposit and finished product to under 6 months.

Q: What are your payment policies?
I require 30% of the total cost up front as a non-refundable deposit, and the remaining 70% upon completion. I do not really accept structured monthly payment plans at this time.

Q: Is shipping included? Will you do local or convention delivery/pick-up?
Shipping is not included and is calculated upon completion and added to the final invoice of a project. I ship USPS priority within the US, the average shipping cost is about $60. I am open to local or convention pick-up.

Q: Do you work with people under 18?
I do not work with people under the age of 18 at this time.

Suggestions for good concept art

  • At least front and back view for most characters

  • No clothing, all markings clearly visible

  • Ideally, in a similar style to your costume—I.e. includes desired expression, body style, etc
