    Quote from lzzrdgrrl: “ermn..... USD 788....... let me mull on this a bit......... hqdefault.jpg XDDDDD..........” Way too much. The folks that had the site retired from kig. Not overly well known either. Way overpriced.

    Well a certain red haired kig talked me into going so I'll be there. Don't worry. No fursuit for me. Just fat Texan taking pictures!

    Will preface this by saying that I'm not a kig, but a long time costumer and have seen this topic come up. Really the rules for kig is have fun. The no talking is usually because of the crossplay elements... and the fact that talking while masked is like trying to talk with a bucket on your head. At least in furry, the general rule grudgingly accepted is... are you employed as a mascot/fursuiter as in getting money? Then yes, you keep quiet because that's the employer's rules. Otherwise, it's yo…

    Quote from Kmeister: “I did my mask with half the eye cut out for vision. I kept it in the spots that were all black tho and I think that makes it really hard to tell. I've made fursuit eyes too and they usually (with toony) paint the eyes on a mesh of sorts. You can definitely tell its painted mesh so it looses some illusion for sure but no ones ever really minded.” Yes it's not kig, I know, shush, but my wolf also does the mesh thing for the eyes. It's really only noticeable when someone takes…

    Welcome Carlie! I can vouch for Carlie as I've known her a ridiculously long time from my time in furry. Can't wait to see what you get as far as a kigurumi character and hope you have a nice time here!

    Quote from cici: “TL:DR You put a lot of thought telling others how to enjoy their hobby~” Wow... ummm is there the opposite of the thumbs up button? Maybe I'm biased in that I've talked to Chris for many years. I respect his views on photography and many things in general. These posts that he did were not the Ganondorf Secrets of Kigurumi post, which your reply would seem to signify. Meh.

    I remember having to bork my name after I got the dreaded "We don't think this is your real name" right after Midwest Furfest last year. Seemed that the boosted activity my account got after I mentioned the on the ground view of the evacuation might have triggered something. So I tweaked my RL name a bit, an FB hasn't bugged me in a while, though I hate the name I chose.

    Quote from Chimaera: “Behold! Me sneaking on in the early hours! ...First time I felt the reasonable chance to hop on considering I work overnights... And the first time in a bit I was awake enough. :)” Dang, I missed a rare event! Hope to catch you next time Chimaera!!

    Not to bump my own thread, but subtopic, you might think, ok, since it was brought up, what is the difference between a fursuit, and a kigurumi? Let me just say, avoid that minefield. Folks hate the answer. Folks much more eloquent than me have explained that the animegao or mask form, it encompasses all types of mascot type costumes. So in a technical sense, and this will have folks wanting to throw bricks through their monitors, there is no "TECHNICAL" difference between a fursuit and a kiguru…

    Wow... hate being the token fur in occasions like this but here goes. TL:DR version - Furry is more of a culture, kigurumi is costuming. Furry is more animal themed. Think Robin Hood. Not necessarily just fursuits, but in terms of art, stories that folks write, etc. The focus specifically being on an animal theme. The biggest misconception is that to be a furry, you have to have a fursuit. Kigurumi is more of a costuming style. In terms of comparison, comparing furry and kigurumi is like compari…

    Hello from Kurisu

    Holy crap mr. Kurisu makes an appearance! One by one, the old gang slowly moves over and reforms. On a serious note, Chris is a master (imo) level photographer, and has a cute kig as well. Very friendly, intelligent as heck, major success story as far as weight loss as well. Did I leave anything out other than combine and harvester subjects?

    Ok, so as someone that got to experience that "fun" first hand, let me try to remember all that I can! Around 12:30 in the morning, I was getting ready to head to bed. One of my two roommates got back to the room, after talking for a bit, we started hearing what sounded like a siren. We opened the door, only to see alarms flashing and blaring. Quickly I gathered my wallet, keys, but left my phone which was charging and we were evacuated out of the Hyatt. At first we were routed across the street…

    I watched the first DVD for Zeta Gundam, I want to finish the series. I blame Dynasty Warriors - Gundam for getting me into that anime. Watched the heck out of Mobile Suit Gundam (and loved Gutted Wren's Gundam Abridged before the creators stopped).

    Let's see... Guild Wars 2 just recently, and also occasional Dead Space 3, Civ 5. As far as PS3, will be picking up the Under the Sea pack for Bioshock Infinite soon, and still borrowing GTA V from my friend in Galveston.

    Oh Hai. Some of you know me from arguing with idiots on a certain other site. I'm Mac, 40 something furry guy, and yes I can feel the cringes here just saying the F word. I'll say I've liked costuming and especially intrigued by crossplayers since my time as a season ticket holder at a theme park in the 80's. Pretty much, if you're nice to me, if you actually have a couple functioning braincells and don't resemble a dial tone when we talk, we'll get along fine. Mac
