#fursuit builders and #cosplay costumers, how do you interpret embiggened materials? When a small animal has a given texture and you scale the animal up to human size, do you scale the texture up or tile it?
As an example, this #maratus spider is about a millimeter long. I'm going to scale the head to 20cm wide. Replicating the texture would use fake fur. To scale the texture up to match the head size, I'd use pipe cleaners and yarn.
Which approach is better?
