Suiting Prep: Your fursuit and you!Was talking with another maker and we started chatting about suiting experiences and some of the not so nice things that follow. When you hit a con you usually see all the fluff first before some of the stink hits you. We discussed seeing suits that looked real mangy, smelled horrid, or just needed a good burning due to miscare. While you take care of yourself, your suit needs care too!!Suiting Prep: Your fursuit and you!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's how to keep you smelling really awesome at a con out of suit:
1. SHOWER. No one wants to smell your funk, no matter how 'natural' you're going for. Soap, water, scrub, repeat if need be.
2. Deodorant. Kill the BO where it really starts. It's a serious put off when you can smell the suiter before seeing them but its even worse if the person is out of suit.
3. Toothbrush/toothpaste: Fresh breath is also important. Keep them pearly whites white
4. Pack several sets of CLEAN clothes in a SEPARATE container than your fursuit stuff!! Don't wear the same stuff over and over again, that's just... nas

If you go down to your respective area, you'll find the download link-- like, if you have a Windows and are new, go to: IF YOU ARE A NEW PESTERCHUM USER OR ARE INSTALLING ON A NEW COMPUTER:
If you have a Mac, it works there too-- go to: IF YOU ARE ON A MAC:

I have gotten a few questions about if it is safe to use or if it installs viruses, and as far as I am away, it doesn't.
And as for if it's not working, it is likely an issue with the computer itself, because it works for most people, I think.

All new fursuit makers, are you ready?Something that has been going around in my head for the past week as I've watched a ton of new makers jumping out of the woodworks, eager to take on commissions. Making suits is great and can be a great hobby, but for those that are wanting to continue making them beyond the Hobby mark, ask yourself these questions...All new fursuit makers, are you ready?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
1. Do I have the time to dedicate to this?
On average I will work 12-16 hour 'shift' days making suits, 6 days a week. I will take a day or two off to loosen up and relax, but perhaps ever 2 weeks or so. To keep up with the demand and the work load it takes a ton of my time, often sacrificing fun events such as the movies or a bon fire.
2. Do you have the space?
I started working off of my bed, then out of the spare bedroom. Small projects don't take up space, but larger ones certainly do. Do you have the space needed for furs, tools, cutting, sewing, and other things of the sort?
3. Do you have the dedication?
Fursuit making can not only be rewarding, but it can also be

When I created my first account on deviant long ago(2009 I think) I believe with all my heart I was the best artist in the world. I thought I was a perfect person who could do no wrong and I got mad at people who told me otherwise. Then one day my parents decided to tell me the truth and in short it was a wake up call that was much needed. At that time nothing mattered to me here besides a few of my friends and becoming some internet sensation artist. I wanted so much popularity and so much attention and it was most likely caused by my family life and situation at the time I was facing. After a year I went through some rough times in which I wasn't sure who my family was or who I was and I did some thinking about everything. I really matured from that point on to be honest. I didn't want the attention anymore and I noticed wha

Well, I have news about wolves, as I have promised to keep you informed.
If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!
Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.
So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.
The ZOO repeatedly applied te

Hello everyone! This is Shawn-McClurg, the other Co-Founder of this group. I just want to apologize not being on for awhile, and that I will be helping a lot more in the summer. Thank you, and have a great contest everyone.
P.S. I am also excited about this too!
With some points flying about and some generous people willing to donate prizes, I'm thinking it is now to to hold a contest with the group. Now, seeing as we don't have many people joining in the past for the writing prompts, I hope that this will miraculously become the fame and fortune of hugging everyone back together again.
For the contest, there will be three prompts that you may choose from. However, I want to make sure we are picking something that people will generally like to be doing. So, I have three options that each have three prompts.
If you like one in particular, it will be much obliged if you post which n

An Iconic Villain is a MustAs I was wondering around Comicon yesterday I found myself looking at the costumes and wondering...where are all the modern day heroes and villains?An Iconic Villain is a Must4 years ago in Personal More Like This
After a little consideration I realized there nearly aren't any.
It seems a little odd but even for grand heroic fictional tales the most readily memorable element is generally the villain. No matter the diverse collection of noble protagonists, its the bad guy that tends to make the most lasting impression, the heroes distinguishing themselves best if they triumph over an especially menacing foe. A good story should have heroes we can admire and villains we despise, or at the very least opposing sides that instigate emotional impressions. This might seem simplistic but the truth I've discovered is that when there's no one we can feel anything about a story gets dull very quickly. Villains are intrinsically more interesting then heroes because they're more dangerous, unpredictable, and unrestrained. Many are often conflicted as well and if

To make it perfectly clear:
NO, i am NOT Culpeo Wolf, the person who was seen on Dr. Phil lately. I don't like wolves, i'm not a furry, i am not American.
But I am:
Culpeo Fox. The one who pretty much brought the word „Culpeo“ to the world wide web (aside from Wikipedia, that is) since most people had no idea this was an actual fox species back then, prompting dozens to actually ask me whether this word/name was made up by myself.
All these others: Culpeo Wolf, Culpeo Rat, TheDarkCulpeo, CulpeoFox1, CulpeoFoxElizabeth and whatever else their names are came after me. I would lie if said that it doesn't irk me in a way. No, i didn't patent the word „Culpeo“, for it is an actual species of fox, as mentioned above and people will choose their names how they feel. And yet...whenever i see another „Culpe

Fan character questionare - (werewolf)I found this questionare from hereFan character questionare - (werewolf)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Let's start – what's your FC's name?
Stephen Hunter King
Is the name a play on words of any sort (eg; name meaning matches the character's personality)?
No, not really. But I named him after Stephen King, my favourite horror novelist. And Hunter I chose because it's a name I love. Although, it does also suit the fact that he's a werewolf, and loves being one.
What universe did you drop them in?
Does your FC have any attributes to match the universe they are in?
Yes, he's a half-blood wizard.
Friendly face, intense eyes, big ears, and really cute smile with dimples. He's got black hair usually in a swishy/spikey style, his eyes have strong brown, greenish-gray, and clear blue when looked really closely but usually appear just brown/green. The blue takes completely over in h
