So, Ive been wondering lately...

At conventions, gathering, and many other things, which suit type gets more "love" so to speak.
Meaning, for those of you who suit often, what type of suit gets more positive reactions, more interaction, more fun, and dare I say is more "popular".

Do people interact more with toony styles more than semi-realistic or realistic?
Is it just a preference, and there is no rhyme/reason to it?

I ask, because I like toony for the fun and cute aspect, but I REALLY like semi-realistic and very realistic, and also find those totally awesome and even cute too.
Is there a right or wrong style to make/buy if a person has a specific goal?

Like for example, browsing YouTube, most fursuiters there have toony styles.  I don't remember seeing any realistic fursuiters on Youtube. And if you know of one, please post a link!

I can also see how some videos might want to star a fursuit that is very realistic, if the video is more artistic and serious in nature.  Where as maybe a toony style fursuit in a video is geared towards a video mainly for fun and play.  Is there any truth to that idea?

If I were to make/commission a realistic suit, would I be , well, not all that "cool" even though I love being that way? 
If I were a realistic representation of my character in public, would it "scare" people away?   

Oh and if veteran Furtopians already know of a previous post like this, please let me know.
Thanks!
