Sewing and working:

Sewing material
  (yarn, pins, etc.)
  10 EUR   Stoffmueller (Cologne)

Electric bread knife
  (for cutting foam / head)

This easily makes a total of about 400 EUR for only the material for a full body fursuit (without the sewing machine, knifes, etc.). And about a total of 500 EUR for all the stuff together if you have to buy everything new (except the sewing machine).

Some of the material I still had at home, but I wanted to list the prices anyways for those who still need them. A lot of stuff I got from local stores (in Germany), I am sorry I probably won't be able to tell you where to get certain things in local stores all over the world.
