Making History at the Alamo City Furry Invasion 2017!

acfi2

“It’s a sleepy day in the sleepy town of Fur City Bluff…” begins the narrative of ‘The Furry, Furry West’ within the ACFI con-book. The page sets the tone, giving us insight to a dusty town under the watchful eye of the Sheriff and his team, to a place where there is a fair coming up, and the looming threat of the Red-Mask-Gang.

Boots, badges, masks, and moneybags…this was the stage for San Antonio’s first-ever Furry Convention.

As someone living in Texas, I first heard of the San Antonio community back in 2016. I had just gone to a comic-con in Alamo City to meet the Power Rangers and I took my fursuit head with me. I thought this would be a great opportunity to suit for a little while, and get used to wearing my character in a crowded place…Needless to say that there were not as many furries there as I thought, and I quickly became intimidated. Long-story-short, this got me noticed (after the con) by a local who mentioned the furmeets happening within the area, and she asked me to add her on facebook so that she might invite me to said-events so I could attend.

While I was never really in the area to go to any of the meets (as I live over 2 hours away) I did research on them. This lead me to videos, and photos, to chatting with Adam King occasionally, and it really gave me an idea of what a Furry Community really looked like. Never did I think that such a tight-knit community could evolve into something so much greater…but after this weekend, I realized that myself along with 737 other people made history as we celebrated and experienced San Antonio’s new Furry Convention!


  • Standing out from all the rest:
    —Since there is already a Furry Convention held in Texas, a lot of people were wondering how ACFI stood apart. On the Official Website, their statement said: “We are working to bring more of the fandom to the state of Texas. We believe that by holding Furry Invasion on the dates we do, we will be offering more options to those that wish to participate in furry conventions rather than competing for attendees with limited time and resources.”
    There were other ways in which ACFI tried to distinguish itself as well. First was with a narrative: not just the one written in the con-book…this was a “live narrative” that followed the story from the con-book and would pop up during events around the convention. It followed the takeover of the town by the Red-Mask-Gang and the efforts to stop them. It ended with a ransom being collected to free one of the staff at the closing ceremonies, and then ended with a cliff-hanger when we learned that someone had taken the safe-box. This narrative would then pick up at ACFI 2018.

    Also, to set itself apart…the con-book was also made to be something like a yearbook. Attendees could have people sign their books or use the spaces to fill in their favorite memories. All of which I thought was an amazing and unique idea that would appeal to a large amount of those going.

  • Benefits of a brand-new convention:
    —There are several benefits to participating in a newer convention. Some reasons might be more selfish than others but it’s still fun to think about. I think the more ‘selfish’ reason is that you get noticed a lot more and its much easier to be social in a smaller crowd. One thing I noticed about TFF was that there was already established ‘groups’ of friends…and there was so much going on, it was often hard to get pictures, harder to stop and socialize, and it was much harder to stand out. But, with a smaller convention…you get noticed more often which means more pictures, more hugs, more people you actually get to talk to and get to know.

    But, the main reason that I like the idea of a new and smaller convention is because you get to see how it will change! You get to see the convention grow and evolve into something bigger, something better, something greater than you ever imagined…and you do so knowing what the first-ever convention looked like. You are written in as part of that convention’s history, and it’s something really neat to think about. I think it makes those memories in particular stand out all-the more.

  • Breaking records:
    —ACFI ended up placing 2nd place for first-year attendance. There were 737 furries that attended this convention with 100 fursuiters. We raised over $1000 for charities, and this all stemmed from only 200 people originally being invited to the con. So, while we may not have placed first, there were still records broken which ACFI should be proud of!

 

  • Helping Charity:
    —This year, ACFI chose a local charity called: Pets Alive!
    Their mission is that they are a life-saving organization that only rescues cats/dogs that have been selected for euthanasia. They are working hard to make San Antonio a no-kill community which is something I think we can all get behind! This organization provides a neonatal kitten nursery, parvo-ward, ringworm ward, medical clinic, foster and adoption programs, and a transport program- as well as other amazing things!

    ACFI was able to raise over $1000 for charity and if YOU would like to help this organization, links will be provided down below.

Rune giving high-fives
  • Bringing smiles to people’s face:
    —I have always said that while Furries have become more normalized than they were before, there is still a lot of stigma surrounding the fandom. That is why I think that conventions are really important. It is a chance for us to mingle with the general public…to show them what we are about, and to really make a positive impression on the surrounding community. I loved walking off the elevators and the hotel staff asking for pictures. I also loved all the kids running around, asking for hugs and high-fives. I always love seeing the smiles that fursuits put on everyone’s faces. It shows me that we are setting the right example and really putting the fandom in the right light. Furries, to me, means fun and happiness…that is why I love dressing up in a fursuit for conventions such as this one.

  • Scheduling Errors:
    —Since it was a new con, one has to expect that things like scheduling might get a little out of hand. I guess that there was an issue with the schedule being printed in the book versus what was on the website. The schedule of panels that was posted on the website was correct, but, the schedule posted within the con-book were incorrect. This lead to a lot of people missing their events as well as some events having been cancelled that people were trying to attend ( as well as events overlapping and such). It was not so much ‘bad’ as it was inconvenient…and luckily, we still managed to make most of what we had planned to do.

 

  • Very Small and Understaffed:
    —New Conventions are very small, and so one can not predict what may or may-not be there. At this con, there were a few vendors, but nothing on the scale of TFF or Anthrocon. Same as with the panels. They were small and kept simple. There are not so many rooms to utilize at the El Tropicano so panels were few and far in-between, but what they did have to offer was still fun and would still appeal to a majority of their attendees.
    However, the bigger problem was the fact that ACFI was obviously understaffed. I often saw people running around like crazy, there was mixed-info on what was happening at any given time, and sometimes the staff did not know what was happening at all. The Fursuit Parade was one of the biggest examples where the time got pushed back twice, and staff did not know what to do with us in the meantime. People in suit were getting hot and had no idea what was happening…and no one really had any answers for us. There was a booth where they were asking people to volunteer for teardown, and my wife and I (as well as my group) put their names down because they really had no one and we did not want to think that they would be there all night working if they did not get a little more help.

    Short staff and poor communication between the staff was also apparent in the closing ceremonies where, they asked for shaving cream pies and a tarp…only to then get the pies but no tarp because: “No one asked for it”. Small mistakes, but things that can definitely be improved upon for next year.

  • Etc:
    —One thing I find that was also poorly coordinated was the group photo for the fursuit parade, and then seating for the dance competition. When they smooshed us all together for the group photo, my buddy and I already knew we would not be seen. There was no lift for the photographer so there was no way that everyone was getting in. The room was much too small. Sure enough, when the group photo was released…people were sad because they were nowhere to be found.
    The same could be said (in a sense) for the dance competition. My wife was standing behind my chair and though she got to enjoy the show, I saw more of the judges than I did the dancers until finally enough seats opened so that I could move in closer. The room was just too small for all those chairs…and it made it very difficult for short people like me to see. This same scenario could apply to the opening and closing ceremonies. I thought the narratives were hilarious but I could not see them and could barely hear them. I could barely see people getting a pie in the face at the closing ceremonies even though I was near the front.

    Another small complaint happened before the convention…
    I was told via the team that there was nothing I needed for the convention except an ID card. I asked them whether I needed a confirmation e-mail (and whether I would get one) and they said ‘no’. But, the first day that I arrive, I am asked about a confirmation e-mail and whether or not I had one. Then I have to go through a registration process AGAIN just to get my badge and bag. It seemed like this took a lot of unnecessary time and, I feel like this is something they should fix for the next convention.

    Also, I contacted the department about the use of “props” – I contacted the team via their website and through the facebook page which said they typically reply within an hour. I even messaged Adam King himself since I had friended him on facebook. I got no reply from any of the 3 outlets. The question about registration I had received in a day…but a question about props got no response. So, if they are not going to respond to questions about it, they need to at least include cosplay props and such as a section within their code of conduct since I could not find it anywhere.

 

  • Suggestions:

    —The Headless Lounge needs to be bigger or at least needs more water and more “trees” for the fursuit heads. One is just not enough.

    —Seating for the Dance Competition should not include chairs unless they are in the back- suiters should be warned of this ahead of time so they can make whatever adjustments they need.

    —People doing the narratives need a microphone, and narratives should maybe just get their own panel or their own little event? Just seemed weird how they were shoved into opening and closing ceremonies, although the ransom thing was hilarious.

    —I think next year should focus on getting more staff and working to make better communication between the teams.

    —Code of conduct needs to include a section on cosplay props ( as there currently is none)

    —ACFI needs to work on getting back to people messaging them through the website with questions (and messaging their facebook page as well). Also, I was given some false information which made my process of getting through registration longer than necessary. This is also something that needs to be fixed for next year if possible.

  • Favorite Memories:
    —ACFI really was a blast, even with all the snags. I have a lot of amazing memories from it, so it is really hard to narrow down my favorites. My biggest and most favorite memory would have to be the Drag Show! Slay Queen was amazing and it was so much fun!!! I was grinning like a goober the entire time and I really hope they continue to bring them back for years to come!!!

    My second favorite moment was actually making a new friend! We ran into @thatstupidsnowfox and he asked to tag along with us. Then we ended up spending a huge majority of the con together and he made for some amazing company. He is an artist and his work is amazing, so if you wanna check it out, his Twitter will be listed down below!!! But it was really great meeting someone new, and really developing what could be a lasting friendship with someone else in the fandom. We had a lot of laughs and adventures together, so here’s hoping we can meet up at cons in the future!

    My third favorite memory was getting to be mummies. There was a panel where people volunteered to be wrapped up as mummies and the other people did the wrapping. In Rune, I got covered in paper towels and toilet paper and then attempted to walk in it. Everyone got a lot of giggles out of it, and we all had a blast walking around like monsters! My wife, Captain, and even my new buddy Nick got to be mummified. We all got a kick out it!

 

  • Least-favorite Memories:
    —I can not really say that there was a part of the convention that I “didn’t like” because there was nothing that was really ‘bad’ so much as it was probably just short or poorly planned. So, this one was really hard. But I guess if I had to pick something, I would say my least favorite part of the convention was actually the fursuit parade.
    So, usually the parades look better on YouTube…people add music and make them seem magical and fun. But, in reality they are quiet, kind of awkward if no one is cheering, and they tucker out the fursuiters. But this one was silent, awkward, and also extremely short. Not to mention it got delayed a lot…so it just made for a lot of unnecessary confusion. But I think that is something that will be fixed in the future, and it will be better once we get more attendees to go, and there are more suiters participating.

  • Conclusion:
    —It was amazing laying in bed after the convention and looking at my wife as we talked about all the things that made this convention special. This was her first convention with me, it was also her first time being in a fursuit, and that’s when we realized that we were part of something special. By being there at that first convention, we were part of ACFI’s history.

    We both agreed that this convention is something special, and, we can only see it getting bigger and better in the future. We already plan to attend for 2018 and we wanna see what new things it brings to the table. We want to support this convention and really help it grow. We wanna keep making memories and look back fondly to this time when it was all new and all starting out.

    so, if you’re in the Texas area, ACFI is worth checking out and taking the time to see. The El Tropicano is great hotel, and as the convention grows, we can only imagine what new venues might host us in the future!!! But, give it a go and I think you will have a lot of fun.

    But, as always…what do YOU think? Did you go to ACFI? What was your first impression of the convention? What did you love about it and what did you dislike about it? Where do you think they should focus their improvements? As always, let me know your thoughts and opinions in the comment-section down below. Also, if you got any pictures of myself (Rune), Escap’e, Captain, or our friend Nick…feel free to link those to me in the comment-section as well.

    Thank you all so much for reading. I will see you all in the next blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

Clumzy Lion’s Fursuit was STOLEN (BLFC 2017)!

18881946_468148380200823_830516523189465008_n

Hey fuzzbutts! Please keep your eyes peeled for this fursuit that might be online (for sale illegally) or might be wandering around at cons. As of right now, it has been marked stolen by the owner, and they are trying to get it back…or, get a replacement.

This was posted a couple of weeks ago when it was found out that this Fursuit was stolen out of the owner’s car after BLFC. The owner lost a passport and some other important items…

The original post was shared around by Sebastian Shepherd (on facebook) in multiple Furry Groups as he asked people to spread the news:


 

SHARE THE FUCK OUT OF THIS.

Everyone be on the look out for this fursuit head. The owner had it stolen out of his rental car, as well as his passport, before hitching his flight back to Canada after BLFC.

Contact : http://www.twitter.com/clumzylion/ if you have any information!


Also an article on Sfist.com discussed the situation and was spreading the news saying that if someone found the missing Fursuit, that they would get a $200 reward…

Unfortunately when the con-times hit us, that’s also when it becomes the season for stolen fursuits. So, please be on the lookout for any post concerning a lost or stolen fursuit, take measures to protect your own fursuit, and just help share the news…hopefully the owner has his fursuit returned to him.

Please feel free to share this around…the more exposure this gets, the more likely we are to find it.


 

Crisis Fund: There was also a charity (GoFundMe) made to help the owner get a replacement head, a new passport, and to replace some of the other things that went missing due to his duffel bag being stolen. But the crisis fund reached its goal of $2,200 and as of today is no longer active. While we are extremely glad that the owner can now get a replacement, we still hope that the original can be retrieved/located/found and returned in good condition.

Lets talk about TFF (still relevant?)

fflogotforwikia

I originally started this blog back in April (if you can believe it). I had the whole first part typed out since I had been taking my sweet time in getting anything done. It read:

Hello everyone! I am finally back from TFF (Texas Furry Fiesta in Dallas)- I actually made it back yesterday but my sleeping schedule and just coming back to reality, well, it has me a little down in the dumps so, it has been taking me a good minute to make any sort of progress when writing and/or making videos.

I was determined to get the blog post done while the con was still relevant and fresh in my mind. But every time I went to write the blog down, it got halted. Maybe it was because it seemed so “overwhelming” to me at the time, or, maybe it was still the post-con depression that was keeping me away…
Either way, here I am again at my desk, trying to put the convention into words while it may still seem interesting and might still be relevant, somewhere.


17342538_10208936401102350_5915332152836065905_n

Texas Furry Fiesta…it was my first furry convention ever, and I must say that it was nothing short of amazing. I HAD A BLAST! There was so much there that was new to me. I went and suited in Rune with my buddy Captain, got to meet some really awesome fursuiters, and got to check out some really nifty events and panels while I was there as well.
I saw some people I had featured in the blog before, got tons of hugs, and I even bought a few things here and there to commemorate the trip…so all-in-all it was an amazing first experience. My furry con cherry has now been officially popped…but goodness did the whole event seem to go by too fast!!!

I know I was there, but everything great and magical all seemed to go by in the blink of an eye. I never wanted it to end because I was having such a good time! I believe this is where “post-con depression” comes from…

But anyways, because the con was so massive and because there were so many different parts to it that it would take much to long to explain…I managed to break down everything I liked about the con and such into some questions that I think people might be wondering about the trip, about my time there, and etc. So, lets go ahead and get that all underway:


17554078_10208947755346199_1095693042306948163_n

  • Was the convention as magical as it looks on YouTube?

—The answer to this is a bit of a yes-and-no situation. YouTube videos of the convention are amazing. They really make you feel emotional with all the powerful music and all the fun people are having. Trust me when I say that those aspects of the con exist! But, only if you put yourself into them. How would it be best to explain? The convention is what you make it. So, if you spend all your time wandering around and avoiding people, then no, the convention will not really seem that magical. But, if you ask for pics, interact with suiters, go into panels that are fun and funny, and you really make an effort to get out and do something awesome, then the convention will be fantastic! And even without the music…if you make it great, the convention will be just as magical as it was on YouTube. So, did I find the convention to be magical? For the most part, yes. It was pretty awesome!

Rune, Tato, and PBJ

  • Did people recognize you?

—It was actually pretty surprising to me, but, there were actually people at the convention that recognized Rune! Now, granted, most people recognized him because of my YouTube Channel…but there were a few people like Spade and Tato that recognized Rune because I had interviewed them for Female Fursuiter Month! So, it was actually pretty cool when I would hear my character’s name and then someone was waving at me! There was also a fan of Rune that said they saw me, but, they were too shy to approach me. Which, it kind of made me giggle. If at any point you see me at a convention, do not be scared to say hello to me! I am just as shy as you but I promise that I will not bite! If you ask for a hug or a picture, I promise you that you are seriously making my day!

  • How was fursuiting?

—Fursuiting was a mixture of the best thing ever and also the most challenging thing I have never done. I realized that it’s one thing to get into costume/suit for a Youtube video, but then it’s an entirely different thing to suit up at a convention and then get stopped every 5 minutes while you wander about blindly. Do not get me wrong, I loved every moment that I was in suit. I loved it when people would ask for my picture or would want a high-five. I loved all the hugs that I got and loved hearing people tell their friends how cute my costume was. I was stopped (along with Captain) by the same people over the course of 3-days because they loved our suits so much, and I got to also be Rune during an improv panel which was great fun as well! Even the fursuit parade was amazing! But, it wasn’t without its challenges. I have NEVER felt more drained in my life then after a whole day suiting! I understand now when fursuiters online stress on the cooling periods and in taking time to hydrate. Headless lounges are a god-send as I spent most the day sweating. It was so great just to cool down and drink some water away from the rest of the convention! But heat was not the only issue…
People would step on my tail, it was hard to get through certain areas with my feet on – I sneezed out my squeaker at one point, and Rune would get super ruffled. Luckily I did not need any emergency repairs or anything like that…but, while Fursuiting is amazing fun, it also takes a lot of practice, and lot of patience, and a lot of care in self and suit alike.

Rune and Drummer

  • Favorite con moments?

—It’s so hard just to narrow done the convention to just a few moments. Even when I tried, I ended up with 5 things that were just…so amazing. Unforgettable moments really. But there are several more than just these! So, first amazing moment was getting to meet Adam King (the owner of Xytras and Drummer) – not only do I adore Drummer’s suit and wanted a pic, I see Adam as a icon for the Furry Fandom. His philosophy, his wisdom, just everything he gives back to the community makes him someone to look up to! Though I have not even been to his meets in San Antonio, he has taken so many furries under his wing and provided a place for them to meet up and have fun, and now he is hosting his own convention this year in which I want to attend! So that’s just part of the reason why getting to meet him and take pics with both his suits counts as one of my fave moments at the convention!

Rune and Blueberry

Another favorite moment was getting to meet Blueberry the Dutch Angel Dragon! She was so tiny and cute!!! I have never seen such a young Fursuiter, and she was so much fun and just seemed so sweet! She later found my YouTube Channel which was awesome!

TFF Fursuiters get ready for the Parade!

The Fursuit Parade was another one of my favorite moments. I have never been in a parade before, and this one really makes you feel like a celebrity! There were so many amazing fursuits, and, the minute you leave the lobby to start the parade there are people clapping and cheering! It’s not as lively as portrayed on YouTube though. After awhile the parade gets pretty quiet and all the fursuiters start to get tired thus the line moves a lot slower. Still, I got to give a lot of high-fives and squeak at a lot of people. It was great!

17629898_10208963290174560_6853483827173907328_n

The Fursuit Games!

The Fursuit games was another interesting memory. I just remember asking Captain: “Will it be hard?” since fursuits tend to get very hot. She said: “No, it won’t be anything crazy! They keep it simple because they know people get tired!” so I believed her and we decided to give the games a go. NO…just…NO! The fursuit games were insane!!! I was linking legs with Circuit while trying to do a crab-walk in a forward line…and then I ended up doing my crab-walk with one hand because Circuit has a 6ft tail that I kept sitting on! And that was just the first game!!!!
But, even though it was crazy, the other games were a lot of fun. Rune got tapped my the “scorpion” in one of the games, and I got to do a very dramatic dying scene which made people giggle. So it was actually really fun and I am glad I was a part of that.

Little girl says hi to Rune and Captain

The last ‘best’ memory from the con is a section I like to call: “Hi Pokemon”.
So, Captain and I were leaving the headless lounge when suddenly we heard someone say: “You wanna go say hi to them?”
Next thing I know, this little Asian girl is coming up to us. She could not have been older than 2-3 years old and she says: “Hi Pokemon!” she just kept saying high and giving us high-fives! She was so cute it melted my heart! She was just too adorable! Captain and I may not be Pokemon…but for that little girl, we would be Pokemon forever!!!

  • Post-con depression:

—After the convention, there is the rumor of people getting “post-con depression”, where the sadness of leaving the con just has you in a slump. I kinda thought it was all just people being silly, and of course they would miss their friends making them sad and such…but having been to TFF and then left, I am here to say that post-con-depression is real!!!

I had not even left the son but a few hours prior, and I was on a bus back to Austin when I just started feeling terrible! I think it’s because (as mentioned before), the son just goes by way too fast! Everything happens in the blink of an eye…all those panels, the dance competition, the shopping, and all the photos. All of it feels like it happened in a matter of hours rather than days. That, and, you start thinking of the things you missed, the people you may not have seen, and you start thinking of the things you learned and what could have happened differently (at least I did this).

I also think that suiting for so long and being so tired, malnourished, and dehydrated plays a part in this as well but, I was suffering from this down-feeling for a good week-and-a-half before I started feeling better.

  • Advice for newbie con-goers:

—Listen to people that have been to conventions before! They know what they are doing (most of the time)! But from my personal experience, here are some basic tips for the newbie con-goers out there:

  1. Map out the venue ahead of time and try and figure out where everything is.
  2. Plan out some panels! Conventions are fun by themselves but you will have large pockets of boredom if you don’t find something to fill your time!
  3. Do not stay by yourself or avoid people! Conventions are a social event! You won’t have any fun if you just wander around and keep to yourself! So meet people, start a conversation, try and make some friends!
  4. Do yourself a favor and go watch the dance competition! It’s amazing!
  5. If you’re going in a fursuit, make sure you have a RELIABLE handler!
  6. Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated whether you are in a suit or not!
  7. If you can get a room in the hotel hosting the convention…do it. It may be more expensive but, it will be worth it!
  8. Do not just sit around in the lobby (if you can help it)- you will be missing so much if you do! It’s not worth it!
  9. Take lots of pictures! Majira Strawberry once said that he wished he took more photos because he could not remember most of what he did at the convention (since it went by so fast)! He was right! Without pictures, I would be lost as to half of the things I saw and did at the convention! So take pictures and make memories!
  10. Do not flood the popular fursuiters! Ask their permission to get a pic, if they are busy then come back later. Do not bother fursuiters in the headless lounge! That is our place to relax!

  • Would I change anything about my experience?

—While I loved TFF to death, there are a few things that I wish I could have changed about my first experience. Firstly, I would have planned out some more panels. I had no idea how much down-time there was going to be between panels and people just not really suiting and etc…so I wish I had seen more things and gotten involved in more events.

Another thing I would have changed would have been to have more reliable handlers. It might sound mean, but, while the handlers Captain and I had were good at times, we needed handlers to be there for us at ALL times, but we spent a lot of time wandering alone…and that can be dangerous. Plus, it would have been easier to get pictures. We missed a lot of good photo ops because there was no one there to take a picture for us, so there’s that. But, had there have been an emergency of some kind, without a handler, we could have been in some really serious shit (pardon my language).

I def would have liked to stay at the hotel hosting the convention. We were going for cheap rather than convenient…but with how often I was hopping out of Rune and then back in Rune and not wanting to carry him around, well, it was too many visits to the car to put him away. That and, changing in the headless lounge or a bathroom somewhere is not as comfy as if we had our own rooms. Or, if we just wanted to nap but did not want to sleep on a table…that would have been nice too since convention rules state that you’re not really allowed to sleep on hotel property unless you are in your own room.

Lastly, I wish I had really made more friends. I found that even in my fursuit I was still really shy. I was reserved and even in some pics I look ‘uncomfortable’ even though I wasn’t…I was just shy. But, even though my buddy Captain is the best con pal you can have, when we split up, I was bored and very lonely. I watched a bunch of convention videos after the con ended, and I realized that the #1 reason why those con videos are so magical s because it’s full of groups of friends goofing off together. You would see these groups everywhere having fun…and they had the best pics, the best memories, the best videos…all because they had a group to experience the convention with. Call me envious, but, I would like to have even more people to hang out with next year.

Oh…and I’m bringing my own car this time…
No more of that bus nonsense and relying on other people…

  • Conclusion:

—Overall I could not have had a better time at TFF. It was bumpy, sure…and there are things I would have liked to change but, altogether I see it as a learning experience / something I can really draw from and use to prepare myself for next year. It took me awhile to write this blog because it was my first con, and with that come a lot of emotions. But, I did it.

Next year I won’t put off the blogs for so long, and I will write them sooner to keep them more relevant…but you can trust me when I say that Furry Conventions are an amazing place to be. They can be a bit pricey, they are not always what you might expect…but this can be for the better. I know I spent a lot more money than I thought, got some amazing souvenirs and got to see some amazing suits, even more amazing talent, all while helping a good cause…but yes, if you have a Furry Convention that you have been debating on going to…go…just go…I do not think you will regret it!

So hey, thanks so much for tuning in and reading this blog! I am very humbled by your continued support! Do not forget to watch my TFF videos down below, and as always, I will see you all in the next one ๐Ÿ˜‰

Female Fursuiter Month (part 8)

f

So, the month of March is ending and with it comes the end of “Female Fursuiter Month”. This saddens me a bit because I have had so much fun talking to all the different ladies who came forth to share their pics and their small little writings for this blog. I feel like this has spurred me to be more active in this blog that I have in such a long time, and it’s been such an amazing month and journey for thisย  blog…so, here’s one final entry until we say goodbye (at least until next March)


#femalefursuitermonth


CAMO VOLUNTEER

camo volunteer 1

“This is the old version of my suit (he’s being updated rn and getting legs and feet!) but his name is Volunteer the Firefighting Dutch Angel Dragon. And well I love playing as Volunteer and my other sonas and just being part of a fuzzy family. It also gives me a lot of confidence and joy to talk to people (especially talking about my volunteer firefighting profession)”


TRINITY TROTTIER

Trinity Trottier

“This is me and my character, scaramouche! I live my life as a leading and social, extroverted person, I have seen so many young furries and most of them were female, these girls inspired me to be who I am today, with my best pal moochie! He’s mad at me because I didn’t talk about him, he’s an egotistical bird with the attitude of a horse!”


KIARA ESPADA

Kiara Espada

“This suit’s name is Sanchez.
Since I started suiting, I’ve enjoyed cons a lot more and have started to chip away at my shell. I’m an introvert and find it difficult to attend cons, social gatherings, etc. I’ve started to make a few more friends, or at least acquaintances, since I started suiting. I’m a lot happier when I get a chance to suit and make others smile.”


MANA KLEMP

Mana Klemp

“My name is Mana, I’m a 24 year old cosplayer and new fursuiter. (Like super new, just started on Feb 26). My suit is Tweek, the cockatiel themed dutch angel dragon I adopted from Immortal Fursuits, he’s the reason I became a furry XD I fell in love and my one friend was already getting a suit made. Fursuiting has made be decide to strive to learn the art and do more than just cosplay, plus I have gained friends through it.”


HONORABLE MENTIONS:

^^^Funneh Sky (suit/left) – Tess (Center suit/Right)^^^


The honorable mentions were people that never sent in a written part but wished to be featured anyways. But, this brings us to the last entry and the end of Female Fursuiter Month! Thanks so much to the amazing ladies that participated! Thanks to those who answered my post on “Fursuits=<3″,”Furries With Real Fursuits”, and “The Official Dutch Angel Dragon Community” – you are all awesome! Also to those who found me through Amino and participated…a huge thanks goes out to you as well!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Now that this is over, more blogs are coming in the future! I have a bunch of TFF blogs planned (if I can stop being lazy and just do it) as well as other things coming up! Also I plan on sharing more videos from my YouTube Channel on here and do more fursuit blogs as well! So, be looking out for those!

Anyways, thank you all for reading and for your continued support! And, as always, I will see you all in the next blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

Female Fursuiter Month (part 7)

f

Here we are, back again with another installment for “Female Fursuiter Month”! How is everyone feeling? Has Daylight Savings Time kicked your butt yet? I know it’s kicking mine! But, this series has gotten so many good reviews, positive vibes, and people that really enjoy it!
And I love getting to talk to so many interesting people and seeing all the different suits out there. It has been really awesome! I have gotten to talk to fursuiters from all around the world, veterans of the community, and newbies as well. I have talked to people that hired makers to build their Fursona, and a LOT of people that took on the job of making a fursuit themselves. It’s been great! So, before I babble on any more…lets get down to the next part of this feature…


  • How this works:

—I asked on facebook and Amino for female fursuiters and for those that were interested, they sent me a pic of themselves next to pictures of their fursuits, and then wrote a small passage about themselves, their suit, and how fursuiting has changed or influenced them in any way. If you are also interested in being featured for the month of March, all you have to do is drop a comment down below with a link to either your facebook, FA, or Twitter…that way I might contact you for details.

LILI DOUGHTY:

Lili Doughty

“Hey my name is Lili and my suit is Skittish SugarBlush the skunk. I live in Australia and I’m 20yrs old. I recently graduated from university achieving a bachelor of creative writing. Fursuiting changed my life and my whole perspective on it, I have crippling depression and stress disorders and one of the major passions in my life was cosplay. I met my first fur at a supernova 2 years ago, and I knew that this is where I belonged. I created my own fursona and made my own suit. And I can’t imagine life without my baby Skittish in my life. She gives me the wings I need to step out of my room and enjoy life. Even on my bad days I spend it drawing her or dreaming of new things to do with her (eg. Videos ect). She is one of my main reasons to live and I owe her so much for helping me find confidence to make friends and even just get outside my room often. I’m now trying to make and sell suits for other people because my desire to create hasn’t stopped with just one. I hope the suits I make in future will help other people battling social and mental challenges find some relief through suiting <3”


KATIE GAY:

Katie Gay

“Awesome! Well I’m Katie, and my suit Sky was made by myself (muffinpolice on deviantart). Making fursuits has been a way to express myself artistically, and wearing them and performing has been a way to make people happy and just be myself. I love the creativity in the fandom and how kind people are. I can’t wait for many more years making suits and meeting new people!”


NYREE MOORE:

Nyree Moore

“Hello I’m Nyree, I’m 16 years old and a very devoted furry. My fursuit is my fursona Lilac. Fursuiting have influenced me because I love the culture and the impact it has on people. I love how I can bring smile to people’s faces when I wear my suit. Mostly I love how confident I feel inside Lilac, the fact that I can immerse myself into a character I MADE is what I love the most. Bringing my characters to life.”


RACHEL NOBES:

PicMonkey Collage

“I’m Rachel, my fursuit here is of my fursona Hazel and she is made by me. I’m 36, I have arthritis and as I’m off long term due to surgery, I’m using my time to help the StrongBones charity and Post Pals, both are charities for disabled/unwell children.”


Newbie or veteran…younger or older, this fandom has something for everyone! And the creativity! I don’t think we see enough Bugge (Bug) characters in the fandom! Nor do we see enough skunks! I think all the colors, the designs, the different species we get to see in this fandom – just seeing how people choose to put themselves out there and represent themselves is truly something amazing!

And, it always warms my heart when I get to see a fursuit being used for awareness or being used for some sort of charity. Yes, they may be luxury items…BUT, they can still be used to do something good in the world. Whether that’s producing laughs or smiles, whether that is being a role-model to someone, or whether it’s raising money for charity…we can all do a little something to make this world a little bit better!

Thank you all so much for reading! I love all the support I have been getting recently, and it makes me so happy that someone is out there enjoying my blog! All these women are amazing, and they adorable fursuits! So many thanks to them for helping me out with this project! Remember to drop me a comment down below if you are looking to get featured here!

…and as always, I will see you all in the next blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

Female Fursuiter Month (part 6)

f

Wowee!
A whole six parts and we are still going! We have even more female fursuiters to show off since the month of March has been dubbed: “Female Fursuiter Month”! It has been so cool seeing all the amazing suits that people own. Ad it has been even cooler to hear the stories behind them, to see what women use in their writing to really define them. It’s awesome to know what people say about themselves because it shows the things they find important and this life…and it’s all just very fascinating!

So I am very happy and lucky that I get to showcase these amazing ladies and their suits for you all! ๐Ÿ˜€


  • How it works:

—Are you interested in being featured for Female Fursuiter Month? All I need from you is a pic of yourself next to a pic of your fursuit. Then, if you want to, a small written passage about yourself and your suit, and/or how fursuiting has changed or influenced you! If you are interested in doing this then please drop a comment down below linking to a facebook, FA, or Twitter where I might be able to reach you for details.

STEFANY BELISLE:

Stefany Belisle

“Here is me and my d.a.d Spade. I absolutely love the creativity and origiality that comes from becoming a maker. I love how diverse the community is and before getting i to fursuiting I struggled with what it was I wanted to do with my life. The feed back and joy I see others have with suits and characters, whether I’m in suit or watching others, it’s one of the best feelings ever.”


BRIANNA PHERIGO:

Brianna Pherigo

“The fandom itself has done alot for me. It’s allowed me to explore my creative side and I’ve started attempting to build suit parts. I’ve always wanted to create things. I’ve always loved Halloween and the costumes, that evolved into cosplaying and anime conventions and then before I knew it I became a fursuiter.”


SAMMY PANTHER:

ELI HALEWOOD:

Eli Halewood

“This is the only picture I have with my fursuit, he’s a lot older in that pic as I still hadn’t finished him when I took it. He’s my first ever fursuit I have made, he’s my main fursona Jupiter. He’s a dragon. I love him to death, I have had him for just over a year now.”


So there it is, another part down, and we still have more to go!

The great thing about this Community is the creativity…but also the ability to grow and to really appreciate the small achievements and the small steps towards a greater goal. In this community, I see a lot more people appreciating just the little things…like some gift art, or maybe a new ref sheet, or a badge, or even that frst fursuit that might not be Mischief-Maker level, but, they love it none-the-less. Also that magic when a character is finally able to come alive…it truly is amazing!

Thanks so much for reading and thanks to all the amazing ladies that posted their entries for submission! It has been such great fun and an honor featuring you! Stay tuned for more of these in the future!

…and as always, I will see you all in the next blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

Female Fursuiter Month (part 5)

f

Hello again furries and fuzzbutts! Welcome back to another part of Female Fursuiter Month! This by far has been one of my favorite blogs to work on because the responses to it have been amazing! So many wonderful ladies stepped up and were so excited to show themselves and their suits and be featured here…and some of them I got to actually stay and talk to online and learn so much more about them, and it really does put into perspective the range of people you will meet in this fandom!

This community has done so much good for so many people, and fursuiting has changed so many lives. So, doing this blog and getting to share those stories…it has all been amazing. So I am really glad that I get to do another part for you guys ๐Ÿ˜€


  • How it works:

—So, for those interested in being featured here for Female Fursuiter Month, all I ask is that you first send me a pic of yourself next to a pic of your fursuit. Then, in your own words, you can either say a little about yourself in your suit, or you can tell me how fursuiting has changed you or influenced you in any way (or both)! So, if this is something you want to do, just drop a comment down below with a link to your facebook, FA, or Twitter so that I might contact you for the details!

KAT WATSON:

Kat Watson

“Heres a selfie with my own suit. Cocoa the doggo
I got into suiting as i can be more open with confidence and be myself. Outta suit i feel insecure like im an outcast but when i go to my local meet and suit up i feel like ive found my missing family.”


ALISYN O’LEARY:

Alisyn OLeary

“Myself on a normal basis, I love cosplay, and dressing up, but most days I’m at work at our local fabric store, or sewing at home. If I’m with friends, it’s out for hikes or watching horror movies In suit, I’m just as confident, but much more outgoing, my hippogryph Orion really shows who I am. Mystical and brave. And I’ve always known, if I where any animal… I’d need to be something with wings. In suit, I also have armour, as I know I’m a warrior and will always fight for what is right. (In suit or not) I’m usually more sassy in suit which makes a lot of people laugh. It’s my main goal in life honestly, to make others happy and smile. If that’s all I get done at the end of a day…. my day was well spent!”


AMY LANGDON:

Amy Langdon

“My name is Amy, I am French and Tate is my fursona.
It reflects my personality, he likes to be a clown and have fun with people.

Mon nom est amy, je suis franรงaise et Tate est mon fursona
Il reflรจte ma personnalitรฉ, il aime faire le clown et amuser les gens”


TAYLOR WEBB:

Taylor Webb

“I’m not good with talking about myself but I’m a very sweet person and I try to help everyone and anyone as best as I can just too make them smile and I stand up for what’s right and if someone’s harassing my friend or loved one I will defend them. I’m a kindhearted person and would give the clothes off my back to help someone About my husky Shea she’s basically the same as me she loves too make people smile and spread love wherever she goes it does make her sad when she’s confused for a cat but she doesn’t mind as long as it isn’t hateful she loves to dance and be cute.”


Furries are located all over the world…and one of the amazing things about the Community is knowing that no matter what, you are never truly alone. We have seen 2 people from France already, some people from the UK, and then people scattered all across the USA.

Another thing I have noticed is that a lot of people, once they are in a suit, all their shyness, their anxiety..it all seems to go away and these people can be more free, and can be more of the person they feel they should be. That is always a great thing too. It’s amazing to hear all these stories of why people love to fursuit and the lives they have touched by doing so. Also, in hearing the changes they brought on for themselves…it can be very inspiring – and all these ladies are lovely and so great!

So thank you all for tuning in and reading! More parts of this to come! I will be doing this for as long as submissions allow, and the submissions will remain open until the end of March! Thanks to all the wonderful ladies that sent in their entries to participate! You are all awesome!

And as always, I will see you all in the next blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

Female Fursuiter Month (part 4)

f

For those that might be tuning in just now: I have been asking for women to submit their suits (and themselves) to be featured in this blog for Female Fursuiter Month! And I feature anywhere from 3-4 entries per post! Hopefully this will give me a good chunk of content this month to show off all these amazing ladies and all these lovely fursuits!!!


  • How it Works:

HOLLY WILLIAMS:

Holly Williams

“Hi. My name is Holly Williams, and my suit is Myrl Frostfang, although I have a few different characters. I work as a cook and moonlight as a writer, hoping to get my first book out by the end of year. Suiting helps me get to be me. I have anxiety and normally don’t do well in large groups but if I’m in my suit I feel more relaxed and more confident. I absolutely love to interact with different people and kids especially love when I go to the medieval fair.”


TAYLOR YODER:

Taylor Yoder

“I am Taylor, a Southerner from Alabama, I’m 18 yrs, 4 year experienced costume designer and fursuit maker, and I live in Northern Indiana. I’ve been a furry for about 3 years now, I have 2 fursuits, Bytes my Dutch Angel Dragon is my second suit, and made him myself.”


EMILY CHALKER:

Emily Chalker

“I made a Gidget just as a fun costume to wear at first, then the first time outside of a con I suited for a trick or treat for little kids. While there this one little kid loved me so much that it mad me so happy for the rest of the week. Now I try and suit as often as I can just to make kids happy, because that makes me happy.”


CARLIEGH PAIGE CARSON:

Carleigh Paige Carson

“Well here’s me in one of my favorite heads I’ve done (Lucy)! I just recently got into the fandom about 2 years ago but before I found it I was in love with animal masks. I’ve been making heads for 3+ years now & they have helped me greatly with opening up and giving me the guts to show who I truly am โค The fandom is my favorite thing to follow and I truly appreciate all the suits people have made โค It’s such a awesome art & I’m so glad I’m not the only one out there that likes dressing up; Especially as cute & awesome animals ^-^

Also the people in this fandom are super nice and it’s probably the best thing about it! <3″


So there’s another batch of such awesome ladies shedding a bright light on the furry fandom! Sending good vibes to Holly in that she gets her book published! I’m on that long road myself and so I def know that pain! Also sending good vibes to all those aspiring fursuit makers features because they are a billion times more talented then I will ever be for sure XD

Still, thank you all so much for reading and checking out this post! More to come as we continue to celebrate Female Fursuiter Month, so please stayed tuned! Thanks to everyone that has participated thus far, and, as always, I will see you all in the next blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

Female Fursuiter Month (part 3)

f

Wowza!!!
Welcome back to another installment for “Female Fursuiter Month”! I am still blown away by how many people wanted to enter into this, and I already know that more requests are piling in. Through this, I have seen a lot of amazing suits…and it’s been so fun getting to chat with people about fursuiting! I mean, I get to do it with my Fursuit Friday features, but, never to this extent really!!!

And I think seeing all these suits are getting me even more hyped for TFF as I really hope that I get to bump into and actually meet some of the people that have submitted for this ๐Ÿ˜€


  • How it Works:

—The whole month of March is dedicated to female fursuiters. So, all I ask is for a picture of yourself next to a picture of your fursuit.

Kelly Ludovice

Kelly Ludovice

“Hey my name is Kelly Ludovice. I have been furry for about 6 plus years now I live in Houston, Texas. I am 20 years old. Fursiting has made more outgoing because I have special needs. I have been bullied for most of my life because of it. Fursuiting makes me have a more playful side I never had before and makes forget for moment that I do have disabilities and that I am just like everyone else.”


Alexa Beers

Alexa Beers

“Hello I’m Alexa!
My fursuits name is Blue Keaton.
There really isn’t much to me just a girl out there who wants to make life as it is.
I discovered that people make and wear fursuits in 2011 and actually I’m pretty impressed how far and how well fursuits are being made today! I have become, really, a better person ever since I found the fandom. I found my passion. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sewing
Eyo come check out my dev art page magic boi- http://ggirtc.deviantart.com


Bryanna Miller

Bryanna Miller

“Hey! My names Bryanna, I’m only 16 and this fandom has impacted my life in such a positive way since 2010! It has made me way more outgoing and happier. I have suffered harassment and many mental health disorders such as major depression, ptsd, anxiety, and ect and a form of personality disorder that’s not super affective but occurs in bad situations, the point is these problems and more have really messed me up , but this fandom keeps me grounded and happy, And I know my suit I made isn’t perfect, but nor am I, everything about it speaks me, I am so thankful to be part of this amazing fandom with many amazing suitors along with it , You all are an inspiration to me and I hope to make many new friends here. Today’s the day we woman get to speak and be noticed, And I’m proud to be among many ladies in the fursuit world :)”


Christina Raymond

Christina Raymond

“A little about me:
I’m 26, got introduced to cosplay in 2008 and have spread my creative wings since. My first cosplay was a suit of shadow Lugia. This suit gave me great respect for others wearing them because of the time it takes to Make and put on. It also made me feel free emotionally to see all the smiles on adults and kids to :)”


So there you have it, there’s another part down!

But, we still have more to go! So many awesome women, so many amazing suits! I was and continue to be blown away by these gorgeous submissions and all the hard work and love that goes into these fursuits and just fursuiting in general. The way it has affected people…the way it has made lives better. This is partly what this community and fandom is all about! The spread of joy, love, and fun! Getting to be creative and getting to feel so free and just be yourself! Possibilities are limitless here!!!

Anyways, thank you all for tuning in! More blogs to come! I will see you all in the next one! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Female Fursuiter Month (part 2)

f

Hi hi furries and fuzzbutts!
Welcome to another part of the “Female Fursuiter Month” series! When I posted asking for female fursuiters, I did not expect to get the response that I did. Now here I am looking atย  a 2nd and possibly even a 3rd part now, and I am overjoyed! There are so many awesome suits out there and it has been so fun getting to talk to these amazing women in the furry fandom! I think this has been one of my best blog ideas in a good while ^^;


  • How it works:

—So throughout the entirety of March, I will be taking submissions for people to be featured for “Female Fursuiter Month” / all that is required is a pic of yourself next to pic of your fursuit, and then you tell me a little about yourself along with why or how fursuiting has changed and possibly influenced your life! If you want to participate, feel free to drop a comment down below with a link to either your facebook, FA, or Twitter where I might reach you so that you can send me the details ๐Ÿ˜€

Zelera A R Montieth

Zelz

โ€œHi, my name is ZeleraARMontieth, Zelz for short. I am a full time college student hoping to create a business making fursuit and Cosplay/props. My two suits are Akuma the demon monster kitsune, and Tato the monster unicorn! Both of these suits are near and dear to my heart and mean alot to me personally. Both represent a different part of my personality and are very special. Fursuiting has changed my life because I am very shy and unsocial, and with my sonas I am able to actually meet new people with and I have become more outgoing. This has also given me the opportunity to make a career doing what I love.โ€œ


Amanda Marie Smith

Amanda Marie Smith

“I’m a 26 year old Florida Fursuiter! My main fursona is Senshine the Fairydog (On the bottom with my family <3) which I created way back in 2004! I’ve always been interested in fursuiting, but it wasn’t until 2015 that I got my first fursuit, Phan the Opossum! Sense then I’ve gone crazy for it, and invest a lot of time and money into maintaining and acquiring my fursuits! These are three of them, and a fourth is on it’s way!
I go suiting for local charity events, and occasionally can be spotted marching around a nearby flea market for fun! Over the years I’ve grown more tolerant and understanding and aim to be even more so thanks to friends I’ve gained through my suiting. During the week I work a simple 9-6 dayjob as a desk jockey to support my three dogs, two cats, and my partner’s education. <3″


Jade Harleybutt

Jade Harleybutt and Lemon

“I’m 19 years old and live in the north East of England. Lemon was my first fursuit and my only one. I have no job and currently get benifits due to bad health. I have a disease known as crohn’s disease and I am in hospital quite a bit, fursuiting helps me break free of all that as it’s something I enjoy and takes my mind off things. I enjoy watching stuff on youtube, reading webcomics like Homestuck and BitterSweet Candy Bowl, Watching cartoons and Anime and also drawing in my free time, which I have a lot of.”


Amandine Lebiot

Amandine Lebiot

“Hi.
I have a revelation for you, Liverpool is a girl!
I am 24 years old. I live in France.
I created my 2 fursuits myself and am currently making the third.
Liverpool is a dragon/sergal mixed with deadpool (i love this character)
When i have my suit on me i am free, happy nobody knows who i am, i can laugh, play, run, and jump.
I am feeling like i am myself.
I like to be my OC – play with children, laugh with the parent(s)
I can be the happy side of me.”


So how awesome was that? Getting to see all these awesome and amazing ladies???

I will admit, I had a fan-girling moment when I saw that the owner of Liverpool had commented on my post. I had seen the suit on YouTube and always thought it was amazing, but yeah, getting to know a little bit more about the person and such really made my day! Also, that Opossum suit is just too cute! Such a unique suit as you don’t see many people using that as their fursona.

But isn’t that what is so amazing about this fandom? It’s all about creativity!! I see all these creative characters with people that love them! Some bought their suits, others made them themselves with time, blood, sweat, tears, pride, and joy…and these characters, no matter where they came from, are all important and make the fandom that much brighter!

So happy “female fursuiter month” to everyone! Thanks so much for these lovely ladies that participated and helped me out with my blog!

More parts to this coming soon! So thank you all so much for reading, and, I will see you all in the next blog ๐Ÿ˜‰
