(Yeah, that'd be very cool! A military artist, or a military fur Group would be awesome! I'd suggest a DAGroup, but seeing as how dead DA has been for the past few years, I can't imagine it would garnish much activity. There are tons of military furs out there, I know, and there's a few piecemeal groups on FA. Though, considering that we're in the military and quite busy, the groups aren't too hoppin,' haha. And thanks! I just fly and draw, and somehow find time to sleep and eat and fursuit sometimes, lol.)
Oh yeah, fursuiting can be as simple as you make it, or with a lot of work! I've found a nice balance that makes for good outings, hence my condensing it here in list form.
I just try to remember, and have included, the necessities and even some important things some folks might not think about - like baby wipes or spot cleaner - you never know when a cosplayer with bright pink makeup will decide to kiss your pale-furred fursuit nose! D: (Happens all the time. *sobs* )
Haha, it's fine. And oh man, I would advise from going to conventions where there are big AoT and Hetalia panels going on - cosplayers looove to run around in as-historically-or-currently-accurate-as-possible military get-ups, complete with ranks and flags and all. I really don't mind the outfits at all, but the ranks, and especially countries' flags, is kind of in that grey territory.
And haha, I think the giant 'FURSUITING SURVIVAL GUIDE' title makes it furry enough.
Yeah, like I said, full-on stars - I had to do a bit of a double-take. I've also seen folks striking full-on salute poses while in camo in fursuit. I get that it's their character and they're military-themed, yadda, but to go to attention and do a salute for a fursuit photoshoot, just... I honestly do think that that crosses the line a bit. I've only seen photos of folks doing the salute, but if I see them at conventions, I may just let 'em know that that rubs the wrong way a little. I know they don't mean it, but it's like, not with standing at attention and all, man. *makes a strange face*
