Anyone know where I can find some long, shaggy brown fur? I need to make a sasquatch costume, thanks.

Awesome! Your location isn't listed on your profile, but if you happen to be Canadian, most of the Fabriclands I've been to have had a selection of faux furs. One of my recent acquisitions is actually a length of black faux Mongolian goat hair. It's about 3 inches long and somewhat kinky. It's actually a REALLY good facsimile considering it's plastic! It looks almost exactly like this pillow:

Just ask at your local fabric store if they have any, and if not, if they know a local (or near-local) source. I imagine shipping could get ugly if you were to buy it online, because even the tiny piece I bought is deceptively heavy.

If you do have to buy online, this is a reputable website, though I've never personally bought from them:

The link is to some 1.5 inch furs.

I also found this faux Mongolian, but it's caramel coloured, not brown:

Just to add another link:

I've ordered from them before and loved the fur I got, plus they cut generously. It is more expensive though. (Agreed that Ludi's find looks pretty great)

Thanks! This seems to be just what I'm looking for. I've a local Hancock Fabrics and a Hobby Lobby here, that's about it. There selection seems to be somewhat limited. My oldest daughter is wanting to make a bigfoot movie spoof. She's got the whole story line and everything. She just needs a costume. Thanks again.
