This toony short faced animal foam head provides a base to make your very own Rabbit, hare, otter, ferret, martin, weasel, binturong, mouse, hamster, guinea pig and many more short faced animals. With modification to the nose, will also work will other short faced mammals such as a bear, bat, different felines and more. Due to the soft and flexible nature of the foam, it is very easy to cut and modify to suit your needs.

*Please note* This base is designed to work with my large eyes selection

uncut, or cut and carved options available  (How to cut and carve a foam base)

With the cut and carved option, this head comes pre-carved ready to attach to a balaclava and begin work on. To cut and hollow out the base, I fully remove the bottom jaw, so the item will come in two pieces but this is ideal if you want to create a moving jaw. (How to build a moving jaw)

All of my bases are made from soft, light weight foam. They are durable for all suiting activities, Ideal for all kinds of costuming projects like fursuits, mascots, theatrical costumes, Halloween, cosplay or LARPing.


The bases have an open back to allow your build work for all shapes and sizes. For reference, the opening at the back of the base measures at: 10.5 inches wide and 10 inches high. But, Once cut, the head will be flexible enough to open out for larger sizes. 

How to build a fursuit head with a pre-made base

With the cut and carved option, I cut and hollow the base out with a one size fits all model. But if you find it hasn’t been hollowed out enough for your project, the soft nature of the foam makes it very easy to cut to your liking with a pair of scissors.

It can even be cut enough to accommodate glasses.


You can also buy eyes to match your base on this listing with the following options:
- Blank Flat eye: flat plastic eyes with a sheet of buckram for you to paint yourself
- Blank 3D eyes: Follow me effect style plastic eyes with a sheet of buckram to paint yourself
- Colour eyes: Flat plastic eyes, finished with mesh painted to your required colour 
- Colour 3D eyes: Follow me effect style plastic eyes finished with mesh painted to your required colour

- Over time, the outer skin will yellow slightly, but this will not affect the quality of the base. Especially once it has been covered.
- Some air bubbles will occur in the casting process, but again, once the base is covered these won’t be noticeable.
- Uncut bases can sometimes have air bubbles inside that are not detectable at the surface level (Especially during extreme weather periods) these are easy to fill in with the foam hollowed from the head.

How to build a fursuit head with a pre-made base (Getting ready to fur)

In this Video I will be demonstrating how I build my heads using the parts available in my store. 

This version is more how I would build suits I intend to wear for myself as the head in the video is for a cosplay. For professional suits, I have a different process that requires more duct taping and copydex adhesive... however I didn't have any copydex left during the making of this video. Anyway, hopefully this will answer some questions:

- How do I line the base?

- How do I attach it to a balaclava? (Sort of answers it, but that's the footage I lost) 6:52 (Can also be seen in "how to make a moving jaw" tutorial)

- What do I do if I don't want a moving jaw? 7:21

- How do I fit eyes to the base? 8:33

- How do I build the back of the head? 9:57

- How do I attach ears? 14:22

- How easy is it to modify? 23:49
