Rainbow Dash Quadsuit getting there by MadHamsterCostumes Rainbow Dash Quadsuit getting there by MadHamsterCostumes
Still have quite a bit of work to do, but progress is getting there, just have to add padding to the front legs before I can add fur to the whole body and start on the head. Constructive criticism is apprecitated

Just a bit of advice about the padding...

I dont know what your final design is going to be, but I am just warning you that the more padding you have, the harder it is to walk in the finished product...and sitting and lying down is nearly impossible. I would recommend trying to use as little padding as possible, because that makes it easier to move. Plus, less padding helps the costume be more ventilated, and heat will be less of a problem.

However, if having more padding was your intention then this is great!

Although you do have a very good point about limiting the amount of padding which is good advice :), the amount of padding is important depending on character design. For rainbow dash because she is big, she needs a good amount of padding or else she lies flat making the quadsuit unrealistic to the initial design. Also it's not just about the amount of padding that determines how easy it is to move, it's what you do with it, the soles of her rear feet are rounded to cut down on the amount of foam needed, and have a gap at the back to allow fresh air in even through fur. Quadsuits by nature are not easy to make or wear so you need the stamina.
Like I said though, good advice especially for people who are starting out but it's more about what you do with the foam and on character design, so for rainbow the amount of foam is intentional, just have to drink litre after litre of water :p

I agree. However, the amount of foam really does help. When I'm wearing one of my quads, sometimes I find it hard to move due to where the foam is placed, but like you said, cutting stilts in the foam helps.

Can't wait to see the result.
I hope you will add more foam to the front legs too? If not, I would do it if I were you! x3
It looks really awesome!!
