AND AND AND! Look how happy that kid is petting the soft, big puppy! You can raise all the money in the world, but that kid will NEVER forget being able to pet the big puppy. THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is why I stay a furry, despite all the negative connotations of the group. And yes, that money for charity, it’s amazing stuff.
Thought it was interesting to reblog all these listed charities. I was wondering which specific ones conventions had donated to.
This makes me happy.
Cute suit, cute moment, great cause, great fandom
Just so y'all know, I notice you've said a few times "color safe bleach". UNLESS your suit has intricate airbrushing, regular bleach will harm neither the texture nor color of furs used on suits. They're acrylic blends - each strand of faux fur is essentially a super thin strand of plastic, and the pigment is mixed in the plastic when it's liquid; it's inside the material and bleach can't remove it C: Exceptions for natural materials (yarns, animal hairs) but those are very rare!
When you meet "tourist suits" like the Garfield and Pikachu ones, don't hug them, they're filthy and never wash their suits.
True true!! They’re usually very visibly grimy. u.u
these ones are totally huggable tho
Alright, I’ve got your last message in my inbox which im leaving for raichu to look at and I’m taking down everything. Thanks for being civil, and good luck with your business and your life
(i am being genuine, i hope i don’t sound sarcastic uwu)
Hai wyff, I don't have a fur suit yet as I am broke :P but I have a fluffy fox like tail that I wear around everyday :3 I was wondering how you would wash it? Obvs fake fur too btw...
Hand washing would work pretty good considering it’s (probably) pretty small! Check out our tutorials in the #cleaning tips tag!
Note: We won’t post pictures of the underside of feetpaws (come on people, its the bottom of a shoe) or suiters who are visibly at a rave!
A few posts back you said Ari is on your do not post list. I'm curious.... Why? o:
He’s politely asked us not to post pictures of him on here anymore uwu
