Gender Neutral Shoebill Head Base
Description of options:
What is a chinstop?
A chinstop is a 3d-printed wedge-shaped piece which is glued into the bottom of the headbase. It meets your chin and translates more of your jaw's movement into the head's jaw movement and prevents the base sliding under your chin into your neck. Some form of chinstop is required for the base to function properly.
What does plastic color mean? Can you do other colors?
Plastic color is the color the base is printed in. We only offer black and white standard. We may be able to print in another color upon request, and will charge the difference in the filament cost. Please contact about any non-standard colors before ordering.
Wait, we can have these customized? What's a redline?
Yep! Because these are 3D printed, it makes it easy to make alterations to the base. There's no need for molds. We alter it, we process it, we print it. Customization such as eye shape, nose shape, and expressions are free, but you have to redline the renders of the base so we know exactly what you're looking for. Click the “Customize Base” checkbox for more instructions, including which views need to be redlined for each kind of alteration.
A redline is a sketch of the changes you want over the renders with red lines, hence the name. If you want larger changes such as horns, tusks, or accessories, please contact us before ordering so we can collaborate with you to identify possible design issues and give you a hard quote for the additions. Easiest way to do this is to join our discord and say hi!
Why buy a FuzzButt Head?
Lightweight and vents heat:
Ask anyone with fursuiting experience what detracts the most from their ability to enjoy suiting and one answer will stand out above the rest: Heat. All our heads come with vent holes specially placed to make the head easy to pattern, reduce weight, and help vent heat. More vent holes can be added as requested. Further, we offer a range of fans to fit in the muzzle to force air through the base and across your face. Stop spending all your time cooling off in the headless lounge and get back to suiting faster!
Doesn’t snap like a rigid resin head:
Our heads are printed with a non-petroleum thermoplastic that will flex before taking damage. Make no mistake, though! These heads are still stiff and will maintain its shape perfectly.
Comes Cut, Hinged, and Springed:
Does your fursona need a moving jaw? Awesome! Don’t break the bank getting your jaw cut and hinged for you. We print your order as two separate pieces, and take care of all the hardware assembly for you. When your base arrives you can unpack it and get right to the fun part!
What’s more, our hinges are designed right into the base! No more worrying about snapping the hinge off the back of the head, getting it caught on something, or having to hide it with foam. These moving jaw heads come assembled and ready to pad and fur!
Because our heads don’t rely on pre-made molds, we can modify each print to suit your needs. We offer this customization free to our customers. This applies to species not currently in our library, a custom species you created, or perhaps you want one already in our library but with a longer muzzle, larger or smaller eyes, etc.
Interested? Contact us with what you’re looking for and we’ll email you back an example for you to approve or adjust.
(*additional cost may apply for large extra features e.g. horns or antlers, toothy design)
Old models and Replacement Parts Always Available:
Ordered a base years ago and need half the jawset replaced? We can do that! Still in love with the old head shape, but want to fur up a version 2 of your sona? Not a problem! Want to add LED eyes to an old custom base? Done!
Our files are stored in three separate places locally, and versioned backups are uploaded daily to an off-site third-party datacenter, so you can rest assured that we always have your files on hand!
