|Characteristics:||Orlando's a fun, lovable red fox with a pattern involving colors, no one usually see's together often :) |
When speaking art-wise, I love whenever Orlando's portrayed in any wacky style presented, especially toony! <3
One very noticeable thing about him would have to be his hair, which is usually a BIG/large tuft of hair, usually consisting of at least four hair stalks.
ALSO, to speak more into how he acts, Orlando overall just loves to have fun, meet new people, make a new friend, and always thinks and is on the positive side of things in life.
Plus, speaking for both him, and me being the actual performer, our speech can be noticeably accented at times if yah pay close attention!
I usually jus' toss out th -t's-, -d's-, -g's-, and all letters of the sorts in words where its allowed, an' go off by the accent! I feel it represents Orlando with a bit more personal, true character to 'im, hehe! :3
But, yes...fun, loving, positive fox. HOW ORIGINAL, I KNOW 8U
But, I love 'im. Orlando makes up me as I make up 'im. Its great enough to see him with such expressions and pose drawn on paper, and makes it all the more glorious that I actually get to suit like 'im too!
And I couldn't have asked for a better maker (and friend) than Kishowolf (or, Basil, as I like to call 'im) <3
I originally commissioned only Orlando as a partial from Basil, as I wanted to experience suiting in heads as big as Basil's before considerin' goin' more so with fullsuiting. I not only commissioned the partial because, well, I really wanted Orlando done by 'im, but I also was gettin' mahself a birthday present!
I mentioned this small detail while givin' 'im details and such about what I would like for mah suit. Things went off from there, him contacting me on and off, whether suit buisiness or our friendly chats in general. At some point, he asked for email of my mom to let her know info about what's goin' on with my suit as well (and to make sure she was okay in general with my getting a fursuit, let alone something from someone from online).
Being that she was, communication went back and forth, there being VERY progressive progress with how fast things were gettin' done, and wonderful outcome with W.I.P pics I got from him.
It took 'im only...three months mainly to finish up mah suit (being I commissioned him late March, be finished from last week of May-first week of June). And being my birthday is in July, that made things all the more exciting for me! :) Coincidental enough as it was as well, the week he finished was also my last week of my last year at middle school, meaning graduation was that particular week as well.
Welp, when I recieved my suit the second week of June (being Basil had a convention to attend [Califur]) and couldn't ship out mah suit till the next Tuesday. When I recieved mah package on Saturday...I had a big surprise. I had a few props (small plush ticks, a legmeat, hat, etc) as additional surprise. Badges I also commissioned from him seemed even more lovely in person.
And at the bottom of all my partial parts, the bottom of the box...
I find a bodysuit for Orlando, with a big sheet of paper sayin' a big, 'Happy Birthday!'.
Considering the costs of bodysuits from Basil (being at least $500), it really touched me (and surprised me a bunch!) that he made me one, in secrets, all for mah b-day (and graduation too apparently, hehe). When tellin' 'im I got everything plus the surprised, he relieved to me mah mom also knew about the fullsuit and kept it secrets from me!
Really, both of 'em got me!
I really didn't deserve such kindness from Basil, yet he gave it, no charge <3
Basil, in general, is a great person to work with and an EXCELLENT suit maker. All parts, especially the head, fit me perfect and with comfort.
I highly, always suggest him to commission <3
