Well I'm not a fursuiter myself, however I'd more do like the first movie.

Just act around, acting goofy or something...

It was in the news here in Norway 6-7 months ago..A dude in fur-suit had been sitting around in people lawns (he was in a deer fur-suit) taken pictures of himself sitting there and sent the pictures to the people who owned the lawn...

But I love how the kids were so facinated by the one in the first movie :D

I'm making long-term plans to get a fursuit, and I will obviously be wearing it to cons.  I might go on local outings and stuff like that too, I dunno.  I'm kinda shy.

And, of course, Halloween.  Especially at a party or something when people don't know it's me :-P

With the money I am inheriting from my father, one of the two non-college-bills related purchases is going to be a fursuit of me. I would wear it to cons, local meets, and possibly do charity work with it.

See...I rl, I am not very random (except in my views and comments, simply because those usually are so out there that people just stop talking and look at me funny). Dancing around and singing I just can't will myself to do, I don't move very quickly, and I can't even begin to do a lot of the "tickling and giggling" type physical stuff other teens do to each other at parties. (Thats why I go to very few parties).

But I think that a fursuit might help me, in that it is a full body mask which will allow me to more freely express how I feel inside and gives me a decent excuse to be more playful than I am in RL.

When I get the money I'll get a Fursuit. I want one with a movable jaw =3.

I'd wear to cons, Halloween, Parties, and events or something. Anything that would give me an excuse to wear it lol

I would want to wear mine into petco, I've seen others do that, it was funny to see others' reactions, one girl got scared and went into the back of the store. ^_^

Re: how do you feel about fursuits?

I love fursuits, with ever inch of my being XD Call me obsessed, but I've /always/ loved dressing up since I was a little kid. :3 It's grown from halloween costumes, to fursuits. -le shrug- I'll actually have my partial fursuit by Halloween this year (it's completely paid off; they just have to finish it)...and I have the downpayment for the bodysuit paid. 83 I'll wear it to cons, of course, but I'm also planning on visiting cool events like walks for cancer and such, to help draw attention to the events. -nod- I also plan on just doing fun, random fursuit outings just for the sake of having fun. :3

I guess I love the suits because it gives me a chance to feel how I do on the inside. I've never really been a fan of the human body, and I feel that acting like a canine is much more fun. Call me crazy, but...eh... xDD -snorts-

I wouldn't mind one, but It wouldn't be worth the cost. I'd wear one at Hallowe'en, and maybe in the future if I join/form a band, I could wear it while peforming for the lulz. I'd definetly prefer a suit over real fur - getting real fur would be damn right scary. Besides, I love the skin I'm in

I saw someone in a raccoon fursuit at the Rennaisance Festival nearby. The friend I was with said "I wonder if that's one of those people who has that as a fetish", which gave me a good opportunity to tell her about furries and how it's not just one big fetish community. Now she is among the enlightened.
