Info for the Costume

It is a full suit costume of Foxy from Five Nights At Freddy’s

I made this costume because……

I love FNAF and Foxy is my absolute favourite character

Planning Process

I have been planning to make a foxy suit since playing the first FNAF game.

I started out playing the FNAF games about a year ago, I was very interested in the animatronic foxy and wanted to do a cosplay of him, so I started researching how to make the suit. I started out with his head made of foam, then I went and bought the fabric used to cover the foam shell. I then looked at the rest of the costume and broke it down into processes in order of importance:

  1. Cut out and form the head piece, cut out the ears and whiskers and attach them before they are covered, then cut out the bottom jaw and attach it to a tight elastic piece that goes around my head, in order to make the jaw move, cover it an make and attach the teeth, carve out the muzzle like shape of the top jaw and cover it in the pink fleece and attach the nose (made of polystyrene and painted black) and paint the freckles. Attach the teeth (made out of paper and foil) and glue the jaw to the face. Cover the inside of the ears with the black material and the outside with the red and attach them to the ears using popsicle sticks to make them floppy, use pipe cleaners to make the hairs on top of his head. Cut a polystyrene ball in half and paint a yellow circle then carve the inside out for the eyelight wires and glue them into the eye sockets, use some of the red fleece painted black to make fluffy eye brows and stick them on.
  2. Cut out the body piece out of foam and then cover the two side pieces in just the red foam, and the front piece in first black fabric (for the tear) and then in another pink colored fleece, after it was covered it would then be hand sewn together to form one solid tube and then the rips on the front were done.
  3. Cut the shoulder straps and shoulder pads out of the foam and cover them with the red fleece, then glue them together and sew them onto the body piece.
  4. Resize the pants to fit me and then tear them in a random pattern to look worn.
  5. Cut out and cover the 4 separate arm pieces (first in black fabric, for the tears and then in the red fleece) and sew them into tubes to fit snugly on my upper and lower arms, I would then add the tears and then glue the fleece down around the rips.
  6. Wire the eye lights in and the light switch into my hand and the battery in my arm.
  7. Cut out an old 2L sprite bottle to make the hook base and shape a thick piece of wire (and dull the wire) to make the hook. Then use an old black magician’s glove to use as the base of the exposed animatronic hand and cut cardboard to make the hand shape, spray the card board silver and attach the shapes to the glove.
  8. The last thing to do was make the shoes, which are SUPER comfortable. Use an old winter slipper with a furry inside and shape the box like feet shape out of cardboard and foam, make the legs out of foam sewn together into a tube and attach it to the base. Spray the entire thing with silver paint and attach insulation tape up the legs for the joints in Foxy’s legs.

Techniques Used

  • Painting
  • Sewing
  • Electronics & LED’s
  • Working with glue

I painted his eyes and feet, and sewed his body piece as well as his head, glove, arm, pants and leg pieces. I had to wire the eyes and switch and glued most of the rest.

I constructed foxy in exactly the way I planned it except all was done horribly out of order. First I made the head and covered it and cut and painted the eyes, then I did the pants and the eye wiring. After this I completed the body piece and the hook, as well as made the arm tubes. Next I made the shoulder straps and pads and attached them together, and I also made the gloves. Once this was all done, it was only finishing of the rest of the elements, attach it all together and finally covered everything in fur.

On the day before I was competing at the rAge Cosplay Contest, I made and finished the legs and feet, and on the morning I attached the legs to the feet.

What is COSPLAY PORTFOLIOS?

We are expanding our Cosplay Corner with a brand new feature called Cosplay Portfolios. Instead of focusing on a specific Cosplayer and their cosplay journey, this feature will be taking a more in-depth look at costumes made by our local Cosplayers. We’ll look at the cost and time involved in making the costumes, special techniques that were used whilst crafting as well as make-up tips to complement your cosplay.

We hope you enjoy this feature as much as we enjoyed putting it together and we would like to invite all cosplayers to submit their own costumes via our online link
