Red finding his way at Animethon 14

Red XIII is a character from the video game Final Fantasy VII developed by the company Square Enix.

This version of the character was built by Beetlecat as a personal cosplay fursuit. He was her second full fursuit and her first attempt at a padded body and shaped digitigrade legs. Although based on the original video game character, this Red XIII costume has gradually developed a life and personality of its own.

[edit] Construction

Red is made with a high-quality 1 inch fur. The longer fur on his legs and back is 3 inch black fur mixed with 6 inch black. His mane and braids are real horsehair that has been wefted, glued, and then cut and styled. His eyes are handsculpted in a taxidermy 'glass eye' style as are his nose and tongue. His teeth are a handpainted taxidermy jawset with sculpted lips and his claws are based upon those of a black bear. The feathers are imitation eagle and have to be replaced often.

Red's footpaws were remade in a more realistic style with sculpted, raised pawpads. And his leg padding was redone to make his front profile slimmer.
