cosplay, dressing up, fursuiting, whatever you consider it to be. I think its
really cute innocent fun, and I love maskmaking and creating costume
items. It has been my hobby for over 13 years now and I
really enjoy seeing what others create too!
Welcome to the costuming section of Matrices.net! This section of my site has
tutorials, as well as lots of tips and hints, as well as many

materials, these are simply dated techniques that I no longer
implement in my own works, but that doesn't mean it won't
work great for you and your project!
Possible upcoming tutorial plans: Buying and
selecting fake fur.
