Adoptables

Welcome to the Adoptable Fursuit Catalog. These are concepts Théa has either purchased or designed herself that she desires to bring to life. Upon an opening event each costume concept is released for bidding offers based on which one has the most sign ups. You can sign up for email notifications at the bottom of every concept. Exceptionally priced offers before an adoptable is released are considered. Adoptables take higher priority slots compared to regular commissions.Extra features such as fans, LEDs, etc are up to the client to request. If you are making an offer be sure to state the currency (as industry standards are priced in USD). Offer amounts do not include the cost of shipping.*Genders stated are for the characters, not the wearer. If you have any questions about a costume simply click the “notify me” link and replace “sign me up!” with your inquiries.

Custom services

Currently CLOSED for new commissions until 2023
I do not give price quotes outside application openings. I have had to turn this business into part-time due to healh priorities and learning curves. Once I get my equipment and work flow sorted out I'll have a better idea of turn around times and base prices.

General Info

- A this time I only do toony/kemono/semi realistic styles for custom commissions
- I do not offer typical plantigrade full suits at this time- I prefer to stay true to animal characteristics
- I do not offer single part custom items or refurbs unless advertised
- I do not start work on a suit until 90% of the cost is paid off and 30% is non-refundable
- There is a design/reference sheet quality screening during application openings - it is not first come, first serve. I pick jobs that are practicable, fun, and further my portfolio as I can only complete a few costumes a year. If you just need a fursuit quick and cheap I recommend checking out the Getfursu.it database.

Terms of Service

Get ahead of the crowd with early email notifications before and during commission opening events! Extra Options
Items like interchangeable or separate outdoor/indoor feet, LEDs, fans, accommodation for cooling vests, etc are available, please inquire with your application for more cost estimates or DTD instructions.

Inside details

WHAT IS FOAM SHELL PADDING/INSERTS?

Foam shell inserts are patterned pieces of 1″ upholstery foam glued together to create forms around the wearer held by tension and friction. Super lightweight and collapsible, industrial fans can blow right through to cool without needing to de-suit during breaks. For clients who prefer more solid forms pillow padding with polyester fiberfill is available but will add weight and heat. Be sure to unpack and let your foam inserts return their form a few hours before you plan to wear your costume.

Total list of materials:

Note: not all materials will be included in every costume. If you have any concerns or questions about using alternative materials for your costume feel free to contact me.A general warning to never let your costume (specifically the head) reach dangerous temperatures in spaces such as a hot car which can easily surpass 40 celcius. Hot glue will melt apart, plastics will warp, and the faux fur will be damaged. Certain adhesives and materials, like foamed PVC, will release carcinogenic fumes past 65 °C /149 °F- always let your costume air out before wearing if it's been in such a situation. Long exposure to direct sunlight also damages costumes.
