all started in the middle of January of 2003. I talked to Thrash
on AR about a quadrupedal themed Merfox fursuit. I had seen his
work and that of his partner and was very impressed. His partner,
the coolest paws around and I wanted some of my own. Who wouldn't?
we talked. Thrash is a pretty cool fur. We chatted about the merfox..
about quadrupedal.. Decided it to be difficult for both options.
They weren't willing to do the mertail just yet, so we decided on
the bipedal red fox; though mostly non-morphic as possible. Carousel
themed, of course!
and I discussed options, decided on the general idea of the suit
and at that point I started talking to Dogz. Dogz is pretty sweet!
He and I fleshed out the idea a bit more, discussed the carousel
theme idea along with keeping the whole look as animalistic as possible
while being on two legs. Here you can see a concept sketch.
is a really good artist and is able to visualize the ideas very
nicely. Pet the fox!
has been busy working the head and the hind paws. Oh my, those hind
paws are sexy! And the claws, murr!

the first version is done, as you can see. A lot of work went into
it and my thanks for Dogz and Thrash for making it happen! Check
