This is a youtube video that I made back in may of 2014.
This video has a lot of special meaning to me. Both personally and in other ways.
I made this video back before when no one knew I was gay or a furry and both were seen as bad things. This was back before gay marriage was legal and furries had very bad media representation. Not that their media representation is much better now but it’s made progress.
One reason this video is special to me is because it gave me an escape to something positive and the fandom gave me a feeling of acceptance and it did the same for many of the people who watched it too.

This is a podcast I made a 2 years ago. It features some of my friends that I’ve know between 4 and 8 years. The people featured in the podcast are Storme, Fuzzy, Rae, George and myself. It was an experimental thing we did that did not end up taking off very well due to us all having a very hard time getting together on a regular basis to do the podcast due to our schedules not meshing. We were originally going to do 2 funny 1 serious but we decided to keep it light hearted and do 3 funny topics. The 3 things we ended up talking about were, describing your sex-life with a videogame tittle, sponge bob quotes and finally PVP derps. PVP derps is related to a popular video called “World of warcraft” it’s not something everyone’s going to fully understand but it was something that we all had in common and experience with. PVP is related to the Player v.s Player aspect of the game and derps is referring to the stupid moments we’ve had while playing.
This is a picture of an old fursuit head me and my grandmother tried to make about 2 years ago with a reference sheet we were using for my fursona right underneath it. Both the head and reference sheet are a bit out of date by now. We also scrapped the plan of making the rest of the suit for now because the head didn’t look “cartoony” enough in style for what I wanted in my suit. Although I am planning on revamping both the ref sheet and the entire fursuit from scratch once I get together with my cousin in a few months because she offered to help me build a new suit.
Many people are curious what a furry actually is and what the furry fandom is about, along with the social normal within the fandom and around fur-cons. (or furry conventions) I find people are also curious as to why they’re in the fandom along with what furries normally do within the fandom and whether you’re a long time furry or don’t know what the fandom is I thought this video would be a great topic starter to see what your guys opinions are on furries and what they do from cons, to fursuits and everything inbetween.
