Aww, thank you!
Yes, yes, I do make fanbots. Since you own them, you can commission people for them. My prices for custom “Little Me” type dolls (like Little War Rabbit) start at $200. Here is a link to my TOS.
Tips for how to make their own? Trial and error, looking up jointed puppets (marionettes) online, and having an idea of sculpting. Rabbit’s head actually started as a foam sculpt, which I then used some fursuit tutorials to help me get a head pattern for him.
I know I know, a lot of people hate furries. But they do a lot of costume work, and have a lot of tips for how to make these costumes fit, look good, and last. And these tutorials can be used for things other than mascot costumes. Like sculpting a head out of foam, making a pattern, sewing the fabric, and then stuffing it.
Also look into sewing stitches if you have to hand sew, like the first War Rabbit was. If you have a sewing machine, be ready for some really small pieces to be sewn.
Draw out your patterns. You don’t have to be good at art to draw a pattern. But drawing your details on the pattern helps you figure out placement so you don’t make pieces too big or too small. Siding with this, don’t forget your seam allowance! And pick your threads carefully. I found that normal thread and embroidery thread does not make good jointing thread.
That’s all I can think of just now. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me! And if you’re interested in a fanbot “Little Me” commission, go ahead and email me!
