    This listing is for one *large* toony African wild dog foam base to make your own fursuit or mascot costume. While this was designed with an African wild dog in mind, it could easily be used for another canine if you use different ears. The original model was created digitally in Nomad Sculpt before being molded so it has perfect symmetry! 

    The base is cast with a plug so the majority of it is already hollowed out. Because of this the base may feel "flimsy" until it is furred and lined. Cutting along the guidelines in the corners of the mouth will allow you to make a moving jaw or prop open mouth for a permanent expression and airflow.

    Please refer to photos for measurements. This base is designed to be worn with a fullsuit or for those who prefer larger heads - a smaller version will be available in the future. Due to the large size this is not available in resin, just foam.




    Ears are an optional add-on in the dropdown menu. They are cast out of foam and fit perfectly on the base. There are little indentations on the base to help line them up when you glue them on for easy attachment!





    The eyes are 3D printed with white ABS. There are visible print lines so if this bothers you I recommend looking up tutorials for smoothing out ABS. Mesh can be printed or dye sublimated and attached to the backside of these eyes for vision and a nice following effect.




    A NOTE:

    All foam bases, especially bases at this large size, will have minor imperfections. These include bubbles on the surface (mainly towards the edges), small air pockets under the surface, and rough patches on the surface. None of these effect furring or the final product. Any bases that major issues will be in my clearance section at a discounted rate.


    About foam:

    Don't like resin? This base is made out of soft open cell expanding foam you can carve and cut to make your own animal costume head! Bases are about the texture and density of upholstery foam.

    Things to know about expanding foam bases:

    -You'll need to hollow and cut them apart yourself, I don't offer a cut option.
    -Foam is cast in layers. You may notice slightly different colors between layers and the foam may feel a little more dense where the layers touch. This is normal and won't effect the furring process.
    -They will fit just about any head size depending on how you cut/hollow it out. I really recommend cutting it apart and gluing it to a balaclava sized to fit your head or adding straps to the back so you can slide it on like a helmet.
    -All foam, even upholstery, is cast foam. It is only dangerous in liquid form when it is giving off gases while curing - I take precautions during and after to expel any fumes.

    Please let me know if you have any questions! :)
