We make Mascot/fursuit costumes.
Our costumes are lightweight and hollow and built for performance. Our heads are made with the goal of giving the wearer maximum hearing, ventilation and vision capability while wearing the suit head.
Our suits are ideal for long duration costuming, dancing or for performing while in costume. We offer the option of LED's in the eyes, or even a fan built in.
Our Costume heads feature follow-me eyes and moving jaws. No resin or heavy interior needed to have these effects. Heads are made with various foam types and a magnetic mouth hinge.
Bodysuits are made with Zip-on feet for digigrade suits and a zip-on tail option for most tails. These Zip-on features allows for easy cleaning and seamless appearance.
Zaro wolf (Skye Cabbit) is the founder and owner of Thunderhowl Studios. She has been making costumes since 2014, her goal is to make suits just as lightweight, comfortable and wearable as they are cute.
Aiko wolf joined Thunderhowl Studios in 2018, and has been helping with all aspects of design and production of fursuits plus being a personal photographer for Thunderhowl Studios. His amazing video and photo editing as well as direction on suit production has made him a valuable part of the Thunderhowl team.
Seeking a method to allow moving jaws in foam heads, we discovered a method involving helmets and more rigid foam. After 5 years of perfecting these helmet base heads, we've been able to incorporate
*ear vents for better hearing and ventilation
*wide range vision in the eyes for the best vision possible and minimum blind spots
*ultra lightweight foam heads (roughly 1.8lbs)
*more sensitive moving jaws
*Fully lined interior
In our journey finding our design style, we first perfected the insides of the heads. Then only after that have we decided to focus on the exterior and appearance. You haven't truly seen what our suits are capable of until you've worn a head by Thunderhowl Studios.
