Tiger is real! It's a 3 years old boy named White. So, what is was like? Great! White is absolutely non-aggressive to people or to the other animals but he's very playful, just like a cat. He often tried to play with chairs in the studio or with my bow. 😊 It was a great honor to meet him!
Tiger is NOT on sedatives and he's NOT drugged. White in a very good shape and mood, he have all his teeth and claws, his fur is thick and in a very good condition. Just like raising a baby it all depends of upbringing and training, that's why White is calm and gentle to people, he just got used to them. It's really wonderful when an animal is a partner and true part of the family. 
Sadly there's no left white tigers in nature but they CAN live with the humans who can give proper care and love. And those animals will give love in return!

:( Shame to see you supporting tiger abuse and exploitation in the name of Cosplay. THERE ARE NO NATURAL WHITE TIGERS. THEY ARE INBRED. And please stop trying to feed the nonsense of "if raised correctly." Visit Big Cat Rescue and educate yourself. Instead of exploiting an animal for views. Gross.
LadyKaia Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2018
Albinism and similarly conditioned white animals are rare but not unheard of in the wild. They just sont typically live long because they cannot properly camouflage.

As long as it is properly cared for there is no problem, as this animal couldn't do well in the wild anyway, so shut your hole and go do something constructive, like work at a shelter, or get a job and donate to conservation. 
serratedview Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I do both, so keep swing and missing! Keep supporting exploiting wild life for views.
BoaHanc0ck Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2018
No one is abusing this Tiger. As the cosplayer said, he is in perfect living condition and enjoys its life. Please stop behaving like a retarded sjw. 
serratedview Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Cosplayer can claim all they want but the fact that white tigers are produced for pure cosmetic reason and often suffer serious birth and genetic issues- GTFO with your SJW bs. L2biology 101. Please stop approving of animal abuse because it looks cool with someone in hot cosplay, White Knight.
BoaHanc0ck Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2018
Dude, can you prove anything of that shit you wrote? Stop pulling facts out of your ass! This tiger is NOT suffering from any genetic malfunction or any kind of physical abuse, otherwise fucking prove it. The cosplayer wrote a detailed remark concerning its condition and I don't see anything wrong with it. If you think they are lying then that's your problem, not their problem and I bet a million fucking dollars that this Tiger does not wish to be separated from its family either. 
serratedview Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Man, if you had a million dollars I'd be rich! Perhaps a wild animal would be happier living in a rescue and not being abused by it's 'family'. A big cat can't be domesticated. The ONLY way to produce a tiger or lion with a white coat is through inbreeding brother to sister or father to daughter; generation after generation after generation.  The kind of severe inbreeding that is required to produce the mutation of a white coat also causes a number of other defects in these big cats. In June 2011 the board of directors for the American Zoological Association (AZA) formalized their 2008 ban on the breeding of white tigers, white lions or king cheetahs by their member zoos.  Their report said, “Breeding practices that increase the physical expression of single rare alleles (i.e., rare genetic traits) through intentional inbreeding, for example intentional breeding to achieve rare color-morphs such as white tigers, deer, and alligators, has been clearly linked with various abnormal, debilitating, and, at times, lethal, external and internal conditions and characteristics."

Please stop spreading false, outdated information.

"The white tiger variant is viable in the wild and a natural polymorphism of the tiger"…

"Dr Luo said: “historical records of white tigers on the Indian subcontinent date back to the 1500s, but the last known free-ranging white tiger was shot in 1958. That many white tigers were hunted as mature adults suggests that they were fit to live in the wild. It’s worth considering that tigers’ chief prey species, such as deer, are likely colorblind.”

With the causal gene identified, the team hopes to explore the evolutionary forces that have maintained tigers in both orange and white varieties"

The white coat/blue eyes trait of the White Tiger is caused by normal genetic inheritance from the parents, and follows a simple Mendelian recessive pattern…

Are white tigers still found in the wild? Even if they are present, the numbers would be very few. Under such circumstances, how do you think you would be able to overcome the issue of increasing their numbers without resorting to some kind of inbreeding, even in the wild?

White tigers have not been reported from the wild after 1950s. You are correct that even if they are present, the number would be very few. So the remedy has to come from captivity.

Now we know the A477V mutation at SLC45A2 is responsible for the white tiger coat, even for an orange tiger, we can do a genetic test to know if it carries one copy of the ‘white’ gene. [It is important to note that] a tiger with one copy of ‘white’ gene and one copy of ‘orange’ gene, the so-called heterozygous at the white locus, would appear as orange, because the mutation is recessive trait. Only when both copies of the gene are the ‘white’ ones, so-called homozygous, would it show as white tiger coat.]

Crossing between a wild-type orange tiger and a white tiger will result in all heterozygous orange tigers in their first generation. Crossing two heterozygous orange tigers will have 25 per cent chance of a white tiger offspring. This way of breeding may increase the gene pool diversity of white tigers and still maintain its white coat phenotype. Keep in mind though all the orange tigers used in this strategy should be Bengal tigers so as to avoid mixing tiger bloodlines from different sources.

Will mating of yellow coat tiger and white tiger result in the loss of the white colour trait?

If the orange tiger does not carry any white mutation at the white locus, crossing it with a white tiger will result in heterozygous orange tiger in their first generation. The white colour coat will not appear in looking but still remains in the genome. As said in my previous answer, crossing two heterozygous orange tigers will results in 25 per cent white tiger in their offspring. Crossing a heterozygous orange tiger and a white tiger will result in 50 per cent offspring white tigers.…

From that very study: "Many white tigers in captivity are inbred in order to maintain this autosomal recessive trait [2, 3, 4, 5] and consequently suffer some health problem."

While the coat can be bred, you still need 1/4 POSSIBLE for a white offspring occurs: So what happens to all the other cubs? Hint: Fur trade and not a happy ending for those with boring orange coat. And maintain the genetic pools, you would still need to capture wild Tigers, test them, and then put them in captivity in order to force genetic pool to diversify. And... that's okay for you? Because it's pretty!

Don't go decided that for the Tiger who is sitting there and living together with people, without any problems. If you can show to me that this Tiger has been tortured and abused by the people who made this cosplay, then come again.

Oh yeah, he's treating them well enough to hand them out as gifts to people. Yeah, CLEARLY has the best intentions with his "rescue". And I'm glad I'm not allowed to decide that for the tiger when his master is actively doing that for him. Supposedly without problems. Keep drinking the koolaid.

When seeing photos from this series before I had automatically assumed that the tiger was a model, in the sense that it was a very well created giant cuddly toy. To now know that it is a real tiger makes these even more impressive and that the gorgeous White is a real model, just like your lovely self! :) (Smile)
