Why is a Foam Base better than a Resin Blank?
A foam base is superior to a resin (plastic) blank in many ways. Foam is lighter than resin, and so does not strain the performer's neck like a resin blank will. A foam base is also easier to work with, because you do not need any power tools or dangerous Exact-o blades to cut it. A pair of household scissors can cut the blank perfectly well.
Resin blanks can also be uncomfortable to some people to wear, because of hard edges and size limitations. CityMutt's foam bases are perfectly soft and can be made to fit any size head.

The recommended species for this base is the hyena, but with some creative changes it can also be used for quite a few other animals, such as bears and dogs. The only limit is your own vision for what this base can be.
