Hello all (*wags tail*)! I'm new here and have just recently discovered the furry fandom a few weeks ago. I don't know much right now about the fandom, but from what I've seen around here this looks like a really great place to get started and I hope to make lots of new furry friends. I don't know much about the fandom but one area that interests me is fursuits. I've always been interested since childhood about the "cute, cuddly creatures" that were walking around amusement parks and such, and have always wanted to wear a fursuit as I was growing up. Hopefully I'll have my chance next spring when I buy (I have no sewing skills whatsoever.) an Alaskan Husky (my furry persona) fursuit.
What else can I say about myself? Well, I'm 33, have a very busy job at a department store, enjoy sci-fi and anime, and when I'm not working or navigating the Internet I enjoy building model kits.

Welcome to furtopia! *hug*

I have to agree that this is a great place to start in the furry fandom, I myself am relatively new.  Don't be afraid to ask any questions, and have fun on the forums '<img'>.

If we may ask, how did you find the fandom and Furtopia?
   Now,
       let's go play, together...

To be honest, it was just by accident that I found the furtopia forum while researching about the furry fandom. Even though I've been interested in wanting to wear a fursuit since I was younger, I never really knew the fandom existed until I watched the CSI Halloween episode weeks ago. I didn't watch the episode for the "bad" aspects of fursuiting and furry fandom (which I'm NOT into), merely to pass the time on an otherwise boring evening. But what I saw on the show brought back my interest in wearing a fursuit and also learning about the fandom in general. I figure that if the show is based on real police detective work and scientific theories and such, then everything about fursuits and furry fandom that was in the show must also be real (including the "bad" stuff).

I know your feeling, doggie.  When I found out that other people liked to make/wear fursuits for fun, I was so happy.  And not only that, but these folks would also understand my artwork!  A lot of folks, even my mom didn't completely understand my "human animals" or the anthro dinosaurs I was really into drawing when I was just a Wamplet.
And hey, making your own suit might not be a bad idea.  I learned to sew by jumping in and just doing it.  As long as you have an artistic vision, you can do it.
Good luck!
NYA!  =^_^=

I guess that CSI episode was good for something if it led you to find Furtopia.

*Welcome Hug*

Hello Sno-pak.  I think a couple of furs found the fandom or were spurred into researching it from the CSI episode.  I met a fur from Harrisonburg VA who basically found the fandom the same way you did.

However, just because it's a detective show doesn't mean the stuff is real.  It is a fictional show.  

To bad your not local to DC.  There is a fur, Panda Guy, who does periodic workshops on making your own suit.

Heya, Sno-Pak!
Welcome to the furtopia.org forums!
 
You sorta found us through CSI, eh? That's cool. Some folks found furry through the MTV Sex TV show as it is, so I'm not surprised. '<img'>
 
Good luck in getting yourself a fursuit and be sure to enjoy the forums here in the meantime. '<img'>

*Gives a slobbery kiss, and wags tail*  Another pup on the block  '<img'>  I am currently in the process of creating a fursuit for myself.  We share a lot in common!  I just adore the cute cuddly guys in the costumes making the kids laugh, I hope some day that I can be that person.  Have fun and enjoy the forum!!

Yay! Another Wisconsin furry!!! And a canine at that.  Welcome to the pack!  You wouldn't happen to be in the same neck of the woods (well, hopefully not in the woods till the seasone of orange and beer is over ':p') as Da bear and I?  Any where by lake Winneseptic?  (yea, I know, I'm pathetic, but there arn't many furs here in Oshkosh ':p' )

Well, any way, *pounces and hugs* welcome to the forums!!

To: Varg the wanderer
Sorry, but I happen to be in Waukesha. The last time I was even in Oshkosh was for the 1991 EAA Oshkosh Fly-In. I'm afraid I don't get around anywhere due to the fact that I don't own a car and I also can't drive. I know it sounds embarrassing, but it's a long story and I'm not too keen on telling it. Sorry.

Anyway, thanks for all the hugs everyone! *hugs everyone in return and gives them a wet kiss*

Waukesha, it's not that far away.  I think that the OA meetings are over there.  As for not driving, I can't either.  Hopefully that will change, but untill then I have to stick with my bike.  ':p'

Even though the CSI episode that caused you to check out Furtopia and the fandom is just a tv show and like you said, "it must be real too" is that, yes, there is that part to the fandom but it is a VERY small percentage.

Also, if you noticed on the episode, the 'officers' had to go into a basement and flash their badges to get into a "private" party.

Again, hope you enjoy you romp about Furtopia!
