How do I tell my parents I want to get some art of my fursona
« on: September 17, 2016, 05:54:43 pm »
I want to get some art by an artist on a site but how should I ask for them to pay for it. I don't have a credit card. I haven't even told them I'm a furry.

Saying that you handle transactions for a multi-billion dollar company sounds a lot better than saying you are a cashier at McDonald's

You don't have to tell them your a furry, just go up and ask them to buy it for you cos you like the syle of art! And do t make it awkward, they'll just get suspicious. Make it no big deal and you'll be good :)

I recommend saving up enough for the art piece you want first, you could try walking dogs or babysitting etc to earn this money (I get all the money I spend on comissions from babysitting, it pays well). Once you get the money saved up you can explain the fandom to them and explain that you're wanting to purchase some custome art of your character with the money you earned

Alternatively if you have an older sibling, cousin etc who's over the age of 18 that you feel more comfortable telling about your interest in the fandom you can ask them to use their PayPal and then use those prepaid Visa/MasterCard etc gift cards to pay for the art. I used to use my older cousins PayPal until I turned 18 myself because I didn't want to tell my parents :$

Simple; you don't. That's reckless and very risky. I personally have a PayPal card, but it's always monitored. If you can convince them to let you have your own credit card, make it seem like your purchasing something unimportant, and you have laid back parents, I think it's somewhat feasible. If you REALLY want it, try asking your parents what a furry is, and see if they know it. If they have a bad opinion in it, you're pretty much screwed. If they don't know what it is, there is hope for the art you want to buy. Good luck.
