I was thinking about getting one, thinking it would be only a few hundred dollars, but a fursuit price made my jaw drop... are most fursuits really a few thousand dollars? This does not bode well for me and makes me very sad.

No no no, partial fursuits can be found under $300, fullsuits around $900. We're talking used or not-top-notch quality. Only when you commission a professional builder and request features like digitigrade padding, etc does the price really go up.

This!
I hate the rumor that all fursuits cost a couple thousand. A thousand, yes, if you're going with an experienced, high-quality maker. But unless you're commissioning a super realistic suit with tons of add-ons, or an insanely popular maker with a huge backlog, it shouldn't top $1500 or so.

I'd recommend getting a partial at your age, anyways, since you're still growing  :fox-:P:

I actually prefer partials to fullsuits. I was gonna make Auburn a full suit but then I said, "naw partial"
I've left (again), probably for good but idk. If you wanna talk to me outside the forum, feel free to email me. Just tell me who you are in the email pls

Yeah, partials are good as long as you have the right outfits for them. I partial a lot because its fun to wear outfits with suits...but I also put clothes over my fursuit, I think that's cute too x)

The only irritating things about partials is how some people pair incorrect clothes with them (like form-fitting shirts and skinny jeans); and wear short sleeves when they don't have arm sleeves, so their skin is exposed. Its not necessarily about ~ruining the magic~, it just looks kinda bad x-x
Also, fullsuits are surprisingly cooler to wear than partials :D Because the fur lets your skin breathe, as opposed to normal clothes

Yeah, I totally know that pain. I'm curious though; since my "fur"suit is made from fleece, is it a teeny bit less hot than fur or equally as hot?

It'll be nowhere near as hot.
The owl costume I made is fleece, (And is very similiar to a fursuit) and I can wear it outside in the heat of the day, running around, for hours without a break.


Put on my partial fursuit- AAGHHH I'M BUURRNING (It did get better after a drink)

Ah, okay. But I'm guessing it'll be a little warm but not blazingly hot. Nice costume btw!! :D

Would a Faun/Satyr costume be considered a fursuit? Considering that it has fur and such

That's funny, all the things I've read have said that fleece is HOTTER than fur because it doesn't breathe. Experience speaks greater though  :fox-:P: Awesome costume, by the way!

I think most people wouldn't consider it one since it doesn't have a full-face mask

I'd like the shorts and tail with ears, but it don't think more than that is necessary to me

I really want a Fursuit, but I guess I'd have to wait; maybe until I leave home.
