I had an idea for a unique fur suit. the suit i am imagining is not only a fur suit, but also a suit of armor. It would be a replica battle ready suit of  armor made with traditional techniques that is painted or engraved with  the desired features. so instead of a fox suit it would be a suit of armor painted to look like a fox.

the two main drawbacks of this that I can think of is that while it might not be as hot, suits of armor can weigh well over 100 pounds. Then of course there is the fact that a good suit of armor can cost over $6,000 and god only knows how much to have something like that custom painted. despite these things I do plan on one day owning a furry suit of armor.


 also I have a question for anyone who owns a fur suit. people in fur suits creep the heck out of me, and I was wondering if other fur suits are less creepy if you are in a fur suit.

I haven't been around others in suit while wearing mine, but I imagine you'll be more comfortable being around other suits when your in one.

Well, I don't know what to say about that. It really depends on what 'creeps you out' about fursuits in the first place. If it is their looks or actions, than I doubt that will change much if you are in a suit. If it is general discomfort from being around fursuitser without a suit of your own, than a fursuit may help you get more comfortable in that situation.

I am making a Hippogryph fursuit at the moment (I only have the head done) And occasionally I will put the head on and walk around my house, to creep my family out.

I would like one, but 1: I wouldn't use my Fursona's main form. Fox most likely. And 2: I will have to wait a few years... *sigh*

I would probably mostly use it at local meet ups and conventions. Though unless I move to the states pretty soon I don't think I'll be going to any of those x3

I made a crappy partial of my wolf character two years ago but tore it up to use for a sheep fursuit I made December of last year; that I wore only two or three times. I'd wear it around my house but it's really hot and I need to repair the mask since my sister ripped it up with her big head when wearing it for a school play. Maybe if it was my main fursona I'd wear it night and day. xD

I wanna fursuit so bad! But alas, I am a poor person at the moment and can't afford the ridiculous price of them. Anyone care to donate?  :fox-:P:

The more you have to wait the more special it is when you finally get one :)

I own two. Both made by myself. I only wear it at conventions, fur meets, and community events. I make fursuits as a job, it's a pretty good job for being self employed and still being in high school.

I've really only got a tail, and two collars. owo
Although I would like something done from DontHugCacti. ;w;
I just want /mine/. When I get everything planned out, and written down.
I prefer the slimmed-down ones to the big ones. ;w;

I've recently become fascinated with the idea of having one of my fursona, but I just don't have the skill nor the money to make/buy one..

I AM POSTING THIS EVERYWHERE so might as well post it here too


This is the same suit, just revamped <3
Mushimagic, the original maker, kindly offered to refurbish it to match her current style. It was made back in 2011 (the farthest left), I bought it last October as the middle, and the farthest right is what it looks like now
Just thought I'd share, because I think its cool to see things like this x)

I do have a partial fursuit, made by Blue Harbor Mascots.

I also have a fullsuit, but that's up for auction on FurBuy.

I want one,I won't get one until I'm older because right now I can't go to many cons,afford one,and I'm probably still growing.
