I agree there with the real feathers. Exactly my point why I wanted them artificial. My clothes were kinda rubbing on the edges of the feathers and made the two canvas layers come apart in places. It's easily fixed, and definetly not Mystifur's fault.
One should always consider a fursuit to be something you have you lay your hands on at times to fix stuff.
My tail is still in almost pristine condition even after almost two years, and it is part of a suit by now.
Don't do it! Real feathers die reeeeaaaly quickly. Instead focus on making your fabric feathers more realistic. perhaps have a layer of interchangeable feathers, a set of real ones and a set of durable fabric ones that velcro in and out, so you use the real ones when you need to look extra nice.
