Living as a furry.
« on: August 11, 2005, 01:54:57 am »
Ok, When i get my fursuit done, I'm planning on doing a project in which I will wear my fursuit for 2 or more weeks straight (that includes sleeping and shopping in it! ) ,only takeing it off for eating and hygenic resons (suchs as bathing), I will film the whole experience and put it online when I'm done.

Just wanted to know if people think this would be a good or bad idea.

If you survive: congratulations. You are indeed winnar!

If not: it would still be entertaining, but do be sure to

I don't think it's a good idea, myself. If you wanna do it, then I wish you good fortune, though...

I think you need to come up with a way to keep the inside of the suit clean and not smelly, because that thing is gonna be rancid by the time you're through. Especially if you're gonna sleep in it!

Yeah Heat exhaustion would probably be the biggest one, not to mention the roving gangs of children that will be chasing after you and tugging on your tail. I think you should find a nice airconditioned safe zone to go to when things get too hot.

Good point, I may have to take it off to quickly wash it :\.

Uhhhhhhh....I certainly wish you the best of luck!  

It's kind of an odd idea, and I'm not really sure what it would prove.  But I certainly see no harm in it, though I doub't I'd suggest doing it for such a long period of time.

There are a lot of things in life where it seems wearing a fursuit would be really cumbersome (like going to work, getting groceries, heck, even watching TV).  It'd definately be interesting to see how you handle those sorts of situations, but other than that....

Again, best of luck!

That would be rather interesting......I think after a couple days you'd get really sick of it....and it would be really uncomfortable.....and.....really stinky....and jeez, imagine trying to sleep in a fursuit!? (the head part most importantly)


But....otherwise.....Go for it! '<img'>

I think it is a good idea but it’s not really feasible. What I mean is that it sounds great on paper but lets be realistic, warring a suit almost 24-7 will make even the most mundane tasks difficult and could be seriously departmental to your health….wearing a suit out in public will make you an easy target for harassment and ridicule by those who don’t like us.        

But if you think you can pull it off I wish you the best of luck

There is one thing you can't live without when wearing a fursuit, a
battery powered ventilation fan, I have a 12 volt high output fan built
into the nose of my fursuit blowing straight into my face and up out the
ears, and still I had to be helped to the lounge while playing twister,
at MFM 8 because sweat poured into my eyes and blinded me and there was
no way I could get to my eyes to clear it, and you can't just take your
head off in front of hundreds of people, mine buckles on with a collar
and doesn't come off easily.
Even if all your doing is walking you'll need the fan for fresh air.
I can wear my suit a couple hours at a time, in cool weather, anything
more then that and it gets uncomfortable.
Last Halloween I entered and won second prize at the Terrell Wal-Mart
Halloween contest, the first prize winner was a man wearing a Fred
Flintstone costume that was bought at Wal-Mart.

Halloween Contest.
*
After the contest I walked around Wal-Mart for about an hour or so, some
of the little kids were scared of my suit, but most just looked in
fascination, later on I walked down the main street of town in my suit
with the other trick or treaters, a lot of people liked my suit and
Tevnon's and Hobnose's.
As for wearing it all the time, no way, my suit means the world to me,
so I wear it only on special occasions.  '<img'>

The more I think about doing it for 2 weeks the dumber it sounds.

whell, it was just and idea, maybe not a good one, but and idea. either way, I'm gonna atleast go shopping and stuff in it and film it, I mainly would like to see everyday peoples reactions to seeing someone in a fursuit do things you would do in an everyday life.

It's not that the stunt is unreasonable...

If you don't have any fursuiting experience, you want to build up your acquaintance with it. Suddenly throwing yourself into a two-week marathon is NOT the way to do that.

Nonetheless, it would be interesting, and you should get someone to film it for you if you decide to attempt it for a shorter period of time (three days, maybe, would be better.)

2 weeks or 24/7 is not a good way to go but only for a few hours is much better for 1-2 days is still ok but make sure u wash the suit when your done, and also if u don't have that much experience get the feel of the fursuit before you try that for 2 weeks but other then that we would like to see the video of it when u get around to that.

It would definitely be cool to see a video of someone just going about and doing regular things in suit.  Like going shopping or seeing a movie, though you'd have to sit in the back, lol.

And as far as sleeping in suit, I have known people to do so because it was comfortable to them, but I think they had their head off. '<img'>

I'm going to echo everyone else's comments about this project you're thinking of doing. IT'S A BAD IDEA. Simply for the fact that I worry you might not have good vision out of the head and might get into an accident. You need to wash and clean the suit a few times every week or so. You'll be HOT, period. Even in the winter time, fursuits can still get hot after wearing them for long periods. Even while wearing paws, you'll lose your dexterity when grasping stuff such as door knobs, pushing buttons, etc. I've heard of a few fursuiters that have tried living in a fursuit but they have only managed to do it for a few hours at best, nothing more. IMO, the health risks such as hygene and heat exhaustion are too great. There are fursuiters out there that can wear a suit for very long periods of time. But those suiters have had years of experience and do a lot of entertainment work where they have to be in suit for a long time. If you still want to go ahead with your idea for living as a furry in a suit, then all I ask is that you check into two threads I wrote in the Fursuiting forum below:
