The thing that bothers me is when furs go out and buy REAL tails from real once-living animals. The Renn Fest had a whole shop of purses and blankets and tails made from real animal furs/skins and they were packed, which sickened me. I hate to see animals killed for something as stupid as fashion.

I hope furs here are more conscientious about whether the tails they're buying are real or fake fur. Even the green or blue or purple tails can be real tails that have been dyed.

I have to agree with Flinch but then again I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the fur trade
Whats done is done. You can't change the past any more then you can change the number of stars in the sky. However, you can change the future, and when it comes to that, I have but one thing to say, and that is "Go for it". Because, when you're old and crippled, the things you'll regret most are the things you never did.

Mate made his own fursuit, weird-ass looking thing, but it inspired me to make one, myself. The hard part lies in my fursona's different shades of color on his fur (black muzzle, widow's peak on the head, dark back).
He's gonna use it for some Halloween party, probably not resulting in heads being turned, but a good occasion to use it, though.

I'm making a dragon fursuit, just to practice. I want to be a proper fursuit maker one day :D
I have an ear and tail set from Beetlecat, too. ^_^ I might be getting matching handpaws and feetpaws for christmas. I guess when you add on my fangs, collar and fluffy jacket that qualifies as a fursuit.

Ooh I have ears and a tail from her too! Amazing quality stuff right there.

Just wondering, what does everyone think of those quad fursuits? For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, here's a link: http://lilleahwest.deviantart.com/art/Quadraped-wolf-fursuit-98270469

I personally think they're pretty cool looking, and would want to own one in the future after I get a regular fursuit.

Personally, I think they're overly inconvenient, and therefore are likely to "ruin the illusion" for all fursuiters just by being in the vicinity, unless done by really awesome people, who somehow manage to move naturally on all fours.
If they are done correctly, it would be the best type of fursuit ever, though.

Quads do look awesome but are very unhandy and can't be walked in for long. Also most of them aren't toony enough for my taste and super expansive.

The maker of the quadsuit said they're really not that hard to walk in for a long period of time... but IMO that would kill your back.

Judging by videos I checked on youtube, it's easy to walk in a way that makes you move forward, impossible to walk like I want it (which isn't surprising, seeing as how I want a two-footed being to walk perfectly on all fours. The skeleton simply doesn't allow it, it seems)

No Full Fursuit for me.

I have thought about buying or making a full fursuit.

But it would be too much money or too much work.

I might just get a fox tail and ear combo instead. :fox-;):

You probably shouldn't have started a thread for this.

^Seconding the new post thing
I'm actually making a partial fursuit right now for Halloween. I like the ears-tails combo, but I think fursuits are more my thing. More goofing off and weird looks that way x3

Thread merged with one of the older fursuit threads.  There are several, but this one is the most relevant.

I met a really good friend out here by me and she is going to make a headpiece and paws for me, for just a measly 70$.

She makes really high quality stuff, and her work is phenomenal.

I will post pics when it is done.

That would be a problem when getting a fursuit. That's the single reason I don't have one.
