I decided I needed more sloth in my life so I made this:



The faux fur was originally white. I dyed it with sharpies like in this tutorial: http://fursuit.livejournal.com/2826105.html

The face and claws are made of polymer clay that I painted then covered with liquid polymer clay to stand up to lots of wear. I then basically hot-glued them on. They are pretty well on there I would say. This is the first time I've tried doing anything like this guy ever. I even made the pattern for the body. Its arms are jointed with safety eyes because that's what I had. If you want a pattern for it I will certainly give it to you.







Weeeelll thanks for looking!
