Non-performance uses for Fursuits?
« on: January 13, 2018, 01:04:26 pm »
I saw the article below and it made me wonder:

What are some uses for fur suits that don't involve entertaining?
I'll kick the list off:
1) Saving endangered animals

2) Keeping yourself warm on cold winter days when your heating is broken.

That didn't actually happen to me, so no worries please. Okay? I'm good.

3)  A stuffed fursuit sitting at the dinner table could keep you company...    :-[ 
(No I didn't do that, I don't have a suit. ...yet...  :D)

I immediately thought of the volleyball. Wilson! XD

4) Pretending to be the dog/cat/pet reindeer so visitors you don't want think you're not home.

5)  On a similar note, wildlife researchers (not just rehabilitators) could use a convincing quad suit to infiltrate groups of animals to study them closer? (but may be dangerous!)

6)  You could, again, stuff a fursuit, place it in your bed, and put pillows over the head.  Then escape out of the house!  ;) :D

7)  Put a fur suit in the front passenger seat of a vehicle.  Maybe it could a be close enough to human form (its anthropomorphic after all) to fool car pool cameras?  ;)

8.)  An unwearable/damaged/old fursuit could be used for its material ( if you are not repairing it).  It could be used in animal shelters to comfort animals with the soft fur. This is often done with towels and the like at my sister's work place (she works at an animal hospital).  Many cats seem to react to the feel and warmth of the fuzzy fabrics/materials in a positive way.   :)

Fashion one into classic faux animal-skin rug.

Stuff it and leave it sitting on the couch. That way everyone will think someone's home.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

A fursuit supported by a movable internal framework, might be used as a sort of artists manikin?  To aid in drawing different poses?  IDK?

Stuff it and leave it sitting on a toilet in a convention space restroom. That way you will always have a toilet free any time you need one.

Wear it while doing yardwork to deter neighbors from bothering you.

When stuffed, strap it to the roof of your vehicle during the hunting season to mock successful hunters.
