I'm amazed this thread has been here since June 12! I would have thought it would have been locked by a mod within an hour or so of being posted.

Correct me if I'm wrong but haven't we had...'issues' with furries in the past?

Considering the issues we had last time, we're keeping an eye on it.

Just the usual silliness that kicks off when a few humorless individuals read a light hearted, throwaway group of posts and get a bit hot under the flea collar about it.

I don't know about how many folks on the site have an interest in things 'Furry'.
There doesn't seem to any great number of threads that mention it.

Perhaps folks just prefer to keep the two things separate?

Your best bet is to go to click on SEARCH (the word, top left, not the search box, top right), do an Advanced Search for "furries" listed by most recent first and take a read, there are only a page or two of results and a fair few of those are in the mod area you can't see, so for you, maybe only a page of results.

Besides, you don't need to worry about keeping the room under control. The Mods, Governors and Admin will step in if need be. As long as it stays forum suitable no-one will have anything to worry about, however history has shown that this subject tends to get quite emotive on both sides.  Hence us already 'keeping an eye' on this thread.

Well, the 'main event' started with picture taken at a steampunk event, it featured one of our well known members aiming a steampunk gun at a group of Furries in a sort of comedy Victorian "safari hunting" scene. It was all in good fun and was agreed to by the Furries involved - no issues at the time, and fun was had by all.

Now add a little time and Facebook (I believe), and the picture apparently caused an uproar in the Furry community. Lots of things were said / claimed, some insults flowed, etc. - all the usual stuff that happens on the internet with angry people...  Complete Mountain out of a mole hill.

To be honest, with the views that were expressed towards Steampunks in general, I doubt you will find many Furries on this forum now. I have not seen any for quite some time, so this thread may be a bit dead...   Undecided

I have looked up furries. It is not for me , but is fascinating. Looking at the artistry of it I would like to maybe talk to more of them

I think it would be interesting to learn more about the people and art behind it all .

Same here.

I have never seen a furry in "the wild". I have seen Steampunk and Dieselpunk in public, without a convention or a gathering. In the city Streets, with all kind of attire, SP en DP is accepted. I can imagine Furries aren't, unless they are part of a street preformance act or something. I think it's mainly because of the hidden faces behind a mask.

On a sidenote, I think have experienced something similair to being a furry in public. I was a "zwarte piet" (the one on the right
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
) a couple of times. It is rather fun to be incognito and in character. The character is so powerfull, it's hard to get out of character.

On a slightly related note, I mixed my steam with a bit of fur at my daughter's birthday - she wanted a Lion Witch and Wardrobe theme so I was Mr.Beaver with waistcoat, fob watch and fur! However, I do understand that this is not being a 'furry' but each to his (or her) own I say.

And welcome! I hope this all goes well...

mr beaver is furry, if it is an animal that talks its furry

anyway, got any pics? Id like to see that

and Idk about other countries but in america there are laws against wearing masks in public in some states, and those suits are VERRYY VERRRYYY hot to wear, like 5 winter coats hot

Does the mask-law include make up? I can imagine with some make up and sculpted/trimmed facial hair, one could create an animal face. (think Wolverine with make up)

Or with Furry you mean full suit and head covered mask?

To bring together Steampunk and Furry, I would think of Montana Jones and Sherlock Hound. Human body and attire with an animal face and tail.

Perhaps not Furry, but creapy awesome: http://melesmeles-faber.deviantart.com/gallery/
This could be combined with Steampunk clothes and props.

there are lots of differant types, the full mascots are most common, followed by partials (a mascot head with arms for wearing under normal clothes)

I havent seen facepaint but Im sure it exists, I have seen some prostedic masks but they are VVEERRYY creepy for some reason, I think its the differance in how the human head is compared to most animals

much like steampunk, there is no real "right way" to do it

Excellent.

Furry culture does sound interesting, but far too warm for me.  Smiley

The ad mentions that this person has a workshop in the house and lives in a seaside town

Leads me to believe that he might be a Carpenter.

I think the full mascotte suit looks rather childish. There are so many children tv shows with them in it. Also, it doesn't look "real" to me.  Undecided
I think, if I had to choose, I'd go for a "rupert" kind of suit. Regular clothes with mask and gloves. I do like centaur stelts though.

They're really cool!

As are the werewolf ones..same principle different 'feet'. I've always fancied a pair of them. The closest you'd get me to 'furring up' is an 'Underworld' style werewolf suit.
