Ok, finally got some time now that I'm mostly recovered from being at FC. I'll try to do a more in depth post this weeken regarding all the people I got to hang out with and upload some pictures I took. I was keeping the details of the fursuit that I was going to bring to FC quiet because I wanted to surprise people. Well, here's the suit I commissioned from the awesome Beastcub.
I have to say, walking around in suit was very cool. The suit fit very nicely and I think the proportions worked out well. While the suit was very warm, it wasn't as bad as I feared it would be. The fan in the head worked very well and there was surprisingly good air flow through the suit itself while I was moving. My additions of belt, quiver, and bow needs some tweaking to get the look right, but overall, I was very happy. I was very pleasantly surprised how many people stopped me to take photos. Was a new experience being on the other side of the cameras for once. heh. Visibility from the suit was very good and other than the couple of hours wearing the suit, I didn't feel like I needed a wrangler to guide me around, though I didn't want to go walking down a dark street alone. I am definitely going to try to go out on more outings with this suit. Can't wait to see the reaction at the local renaissance fair this summer to an anthro unicorn walking around.
