Any other furries out there?

Was wondering if there's any other furs out there. If you are, or are into the fandom, you'll of course know what I mean, if not, it has to do with anthropomorphic animals, and a good introduction to it can be found here:

Windy, so do you feel any particular affinity towards chickens??

Are you a Rooster or a Hen? Do you like to lay eggs???

Do you have your own coop? :P

I still don't have a full fursuit of my character or 'fursona', but hope to learn to sew one some time soon. He's a husky/malaute mix, as you've probably guessed.

I don't belong to a furry community but years ago when I worked for a costume shop I used to borrow furry animal costumes for the weekend and wear them in the city for fun.

I used to get loads of free hugs from kids and grown-ups which I really enjoyed.

My fave was a hand made wallaby costume, it was so cute.

I can totally understand why you are into it, it was great.

Much love,

Faerie xx

LOL. This is my favorite thread of all time. I rarely wear the chicken suit. I wear it to parties every now and then and when I ride on Mardi Gras floats.

Faerie, that sounds fun. One aspect of the fandom I like is that there is a lot of hugging. Especially at the big furry conventions, hugs galore.

I remember going to church one with a babysitter (my parents never went to church, so have only been in one a few times) and at the end, you hugged the people around you. I was bored the whole time, till then, and was never one to believe in a traditional God, yet I always have remembered that part, it was nice.

We have a sewing machine, and I want to learn to sew, so maybe I can make my own fur-suit, most likely a husky/malamute with a few neon accents. I have a few favorite furries our there, I'd really like a suit like this:



Well, one reason not to drink, to save up and have time to learn how to make such an outfit.

Also, it is a way to let go of the serious side of me, and be goofy, have fun, be silly, and a way to do so without drinking.

I wish the furry scene had been around as a subculture when I was growing up...I was more the literary minded yet angry punk rocker.....furries seem like a mixture of gooiness, with a more down to earth and honest way of accepting their quirks.

Oh dear, confession time has arrived! My fantasy dream job has always been to be the San Diego Chicken! (that's the Padres, right?!? Do they still exist? lol! clueless in that regard!) I've always felt that being the chicken was my real calling... I'm with you on that one Windy, lol! btw, do you have a pix you might want to post for the fans???

Here I am in my chicken suit getting ready to ride in a Mardi Gras parade. My buddies there are cholos. Behind us is our Mardi Gras float. It is a Mexican Space Shuttle(it had smoke and everything). MASA = Mexican Aeronautical Space Administration.

Well, to each their own, but I don't see what it has to do with secular recovery, and thought in might be a bit off-putting to people who were looking for secular recovery..as in it's not taken very seriously on this forum if they see this here. But thats just my view

The threads originally from 2009 Gary - I don't think it's done the forum much harm.

Moving on...

Yes, I'll move on but I have to say this, it only caught my attention because the last post before mine was posted today and that bumped this thread up to the title thread in secular connections on the main page.
I'll butt out now, as everytime I post I am bumping it again
