Title: Non-performance uses for Fursuits?
Post by: Varg the wanderer on January 13, 2018, 03:04:26 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 (https://www.racked.com/2018/1/11/16874500/conservation-panda-whooping-cranes-otters)

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.   :)

A fursuit supported by a movable internal framework, might be used as a sort of artists manikin?  To aid in drawing different poses?  IDK?
Title: Re: Non-performance uses for Fursuits?

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.

Actually I assumed you'd be so smart to clean the pan first if that was necessary. And at least I didn't mention my idea to rip a part off and use it as bandage. I might be crazy, but I'm not stupid! Most of the time...

OH!  I have it!   (its catching too, so be careful  :o )

Use the head as a Tea Cozy!   BAM!  (please don't tell me someone thought of this already, I will probably exile myself)
Keep your tea pot hot for longer using the insulation properties of the head!

So stylish!
I can see it now, a line of designer tea cozies made in the style of popular characters! 
"Get yours now for only $1350 USD, less sipping and handling."  so affordable, you can own 2!

Anchor the suit at the ankles. Then blast air through it so it flails about like one of those inflatable arm-waving tube men.
Title: Re: Non-performance uses for Fursuits?
Post by: Jade Sinapu on April 28, 2018, 06:38:11 pm
I would NEVER do this, but...
With the microfiber like behavior of faux fur, and its ability to absorb a lot of water....

Use a fursuit to wash a car!   
I can see it now!  A whole double row of furies all soaped up running towards your car.  Then they start rubbing up against the car, cleaning it, with the suit they are wearing...  :-[
Personally I like Honey Sage Oat double conditioning dog shampoo, if you want to know.  leaves a nice long lasting scent. 

(FYI:  Tails can get into tight spaces like a thin brush, good for cleaning those tires and rims.)
 :D :o
Wow....
Title: Re: Non-performance uses for Fursuits?
Post by: Michen_S on April 29, 2018, 04:58:17 pm
Seeing as fursuits tend to get really hot after being in them for a while, maybe it can be used as isolation material? Or even better, as an additional blanket on cold nights!

Penalty for first-time offenders of minor crimes. Sentenced to wear fursuit in front of courthouse for several hours with sign that reads what the wearer is being penalized. An alternative to jail time or a stiff fine.

Could use a wet fur suit as an evaporative cooler device.  Maybe a bad idea.  Especially if it smells bad. :P

Hey you might use one as a "straight jacket" by modifying the sleeves.  Ehh, maybe not.

What about using one as a more fashionable Snugee type warm clothes?

I bet you could use a fur suit as a dust cloth, if didn't care how damaged it got  :'(

Do what Takata should have done.

Use fursuits as airbags in vehicles!

 No one will get hurt by a big fluffy bag of roasting hot air and fur wrapping around their head at the speed of light!
Only draw back is the size.  Oh well, just make the center of the steering wheel as big as a beach ball.  ...Cuz thats safe...

Who needs to be able to see the speedometer, or that pesky flashing red light when driving.  They just distract you anyway.
At least you will have comfort knowing that a cute furry animal will pop out and wrap its arms around you in your last moments.  :)
(I am a mind reader too)

I think I will ask my dealer for the large stoat option for the side curtain airbags, and perhaps bunnies for the frontal air bags.
Or maybe a red fox, they don't show the blood as bad.

Walking through the mosquito infested park, it became clear to me that perhaps I should have worn more clothes.
Would a fursuit work well to block mosquitoes from biting you?
No chemicals needed,  also has SPF  rating of over 30 I bet.

Embed carbon fiber threads into it, pass 12 volts dc through those fibers.  They make heat like an electric seat heater for a vehicle.  Then wear the suit in very cold climates as an electric blanket.  Seriously...could be a market for these things.  I can just see a hyena on a snowmobile in -40 weather.

I'm doing it...

Could people at an animal hospital wear fursuits that mimic the type of animal they are working on? In an attempt to reduce stress on the animal patient.  Of course when the animal is asleep, during surgery, no need for a disguise.  Or would it stress the animal more.  Or are they not fooled by a suit?

Well, I have suited at a wrestling show three times thus far.  My reasons for going in suit is I used to be involved with this indy promotion, and I didn't want the fans to know I was there.  Thus far, only one fan knows who I am (because she saw me with my fursuit head off).  Even the wrestlers weren't sure who I was at first.

Okay so my last post on this thread maybe wasn't so useful. 

But what about using a fursuit to make cottage cheese, to strain out the watery portion, keeping the curds.
Just fill a glove with curds and whey, squeeze, and get the cottage cheese out.

Stuff one, lay it next to you in bed, to be a stand in for your mate who is away.  *nervous laughter * :-[

Wear it when training attack dogs, that way they don't bite much because you are a bigger dog than they are.

Perform CPR on it for practice. Mouth to muzzle and chest compressions.

Use the hand paws to set hot food containers on to keep from burning the table? Especially if they have silicone paw pads.

Drink champagne out of a foot paw at a furry wedding?

Use one to cast a shadow on the inside of your windows so people think you are home, and you have a false alibi. Kind of like a Perry Mason episode.

Stuff one, set it between two cranky children who are fighting in the back seat of a car during long trips.  Maybe they would settle down.

Stuff one, throw it into a volcano to satisfy the gods by fooling them, and no one dies?

Punching bag.

Now, now, I didn't mean anything bad...I just really liked the idea he proposed, and for some reason, a nice CAT head on the wall of a Dog's house seemed , well, natural.

(I like you Michen!  Honestly! just playing, please do not hurt me.)

Okay...inspired by Charcoal...

Wear a fursuit during swimming, to INCREASE resistance, as a way of building strength.
Just have a helper with an air tank on hand in case the suit is too heavy to get out.
Be safe.

Bring a body suit to the grocery store.  Tie the arms and legs in a knot and close the zipper.  Then put food into the neck hole, and use the thing as a ruck-sack (duffel bag).
Saves on plastic and paper grocery bags.  Its environmentally friendly!

fill it with rubber balloons, and an inflater like on rafts. 
Mail to someone you dont like, and have it pop out of the box and inflate.  Do this at their work, to maximize humiliation.

I can only imagine the drag of the water on that suit.  Got to kick harder to move.
