Rainbow stripes go down to the left and right of his chest, and from the head down the back to the tip of his tail. The individual paw pads each have a different color: red, yellow, green, and blue. He has a piercing in his right ear and nose, and wears a spiked collar.

My personal fursuit project, made in collaboration with my partner Kiza. A digitigrade black jaguar fursuit with the theme “RGB panther”, inspired by my profile icon.

3D-printed black PLA base using the Panther Feline Fursuit Headbase by Maimface, sublimated fursuit eye meshes by WMW66 Costumes, and ears made using the Big Cat Fursuit Ears pattern by TinnatuPaws.

It also has soft teeth made of stuffed minky fabric, magnetic eyelids, and two swappable magnetic tongues (short & long).

Parade tail

Photo of me wearing my fursuit tail: it has long shaggy rainbow-colored fur running along the upper half of the tail, and black fur on the bottom and on the tip.
Parade tail

A “super-motion tail” based on tutorials by Neffertity and Adamoshi, with a few modifications: The hole for the belt has been reinforced with a leather tube to prevent tearing of the foam, and it has an RGB LED strip running under the fur along its back for a little extra rainbow effect in the dark.

This is a very big tail that makes it difficult to sit, so it’s mostly suited for fursuit parades or dances.

Hand paws

Photo of two fursuit hand paws lying on soft white fabric: they have long black fur on the top, shorter charcoal fur on the palm, and short black fur and gray claws on the fingers. The palm and thumb paw pads are black, the other finger paw pads are red, yellow, green, and blue.
Hand paws

The hand paws are based on a slim-style puffy 5 finger pattern from Skunky Designs.

We used a slightly different option for the lining, with one half-lining sewed to the top half of the paws, then another half-lining put on the bottom half of the paws, and then everything sewed together.

Paw sandals

We’ve also made fursuit sandals to protect the indoor foot paws when going outside. They’re made of a softshell-like material wrapped around an EVA foam base, with anti-slip rubber soles glued to the bottom. They’re attached to the paw with 2 cm webbing straps with rainbow-colored ribbons sewn to the top side.
