Redstorm Fursuits is a fursuit studio based out of Arizona. They specialize in making heads out of foam with moving jaws. Known mostly for their Felines and Cabbits, they offer many other species such as short-muzzled dragons, and a variety of canines.

The suit-making team of Redstorm consisted of Skye Cabbit and Kitkat Cabbit, both fursuiters who sport an iconic Red and Blue cabbit duo. Redstorm Fursuits opens for suit commissions a couple times a year and typically completes them within a span of 6-8 months. They also do pre-made suits about once a month and auction those online.

Redstorm Fursuits' custom foam bases are hollow and lightweight, but flexible, with an ear vent and wider vision than most makers improving ventilation.[citation needed] Digigrade padding is also hollow so it allows maximum movement and air flow.

History[edit]

Redstorm Fursuits started in Tampa, Florida in 2014 when both makers made their first heads separately from one another. They combined forces and moved to Arizona to continue making suits. The name Redstorm Fursuits comes from a combination of their original fursona characters. Zaro's character was storm or thunder related, and Kets's fursona had various shades of red. As of January 2017, they had made over 18 fursuit heads. By May 2017, they had made nine more, with eight of those having a moving jaw.

The duo continued making suits together until late August 2018, when Skye Cabbit decided to leave the Redstorm team. By this time frame, the team had made roughly 45 fursuits (both partials and fullsuits), and had just been guest of honor for Itty Bitty Fur Con 2018.[1]

It was mutually decided that within September 2018 things will gradually be split. Kitkat will continue Redstorm and Skye will start working under the name Thunderhowl Studios. They will continue the same suit style as one another and commissioners can choose who they want doing their suits.
