|You Are Here||Dennis' Lair -> Costumes I've Made -> Moomba|
The origin of this costume revolves around the video game Final Fantasy VIII - in this, one of the characters, Laguna Loire, had met up with these creatures in a work camp wile incarcerated there. From what I recall, he actually helped liberate them, and at that point, the word "Laguna" made it into their otherwise single word vocabulary.
Originally, my ex wife and I intended to go to Anime Central or another anime con so decked out. This never happened due to budgetary constraints, and...well, she's now my ex.
Before that, rather than a "fursuit" costume, I had originally wanted to do something similar to the tiger costumes you see here - that is, have it based entirely off of a unitard. Astrid had actually decided that this wouldn't look so good, given my somewhat flabby physique at the time. Granted, at the time of writing this, I'm still a bit on the fluffy side....
Suffice it to say, though, this costume never came out. It's probable that it could be made into a lion, but I'm not sure what I'd do with this thing anymore - I've been toting it around since it's been completed.

This is actually a pad sandwich, for all intents and purposes. Directly on my body is a Leg Avenue skin tone unitard, on which the padding is sewn; over this is pretty much spandex.
