  1. Title is a little misleading, but you get the gist.

    So what style of fursuit do you prefer? Do you even have a preference?
    I for example have a great deal of love for semi-to-realistic fursuits. I love how they look as if they could be a real animal or anthro, and the extra details like the eyes really captivate me.

    Royn Otterest Sergal evah!

    Toonalistic, or realoony. Likem both.
  3. MadKiyo

    MadKiyo Villainous Fly

    A mix of both.

    It really depends on the person wearing it. ♡ I believe both under the right energy would work.

  5. I kind of agree on that point. Telephone and some other DADs work as toony style, but I think it's cause of the characterization.

    Only realistic. Way to go. Tombstone will be a realistic sergal and it will shine.

    My favorite is kemono style suits, so I suppose toony

    racoondevil Minogue be my furname, hello!

    I prefer toony, but when you have a realistic one in front of you, you can't go wrong.
  9. HallowQueen

    HallowQueen Candy is dandy~

    depends on the character and acting style, the build should feel true to that character. but in general a high detail toony is the best option for being cool and approachable!

    Toony is much better in my opinion.

    I respect the dedication to the realistic ones but they kind of creep me out a little bit. I'm all for people being who they are so by all means do what you want to do. Wear a boot on your head. Just know if you walk by me I'm gonna look like this under my mask:

    depends entirely on the character...go with what works better. if it's more "cute", go with toony / follow-me. if it's more realistic, know what to do.

    I pick both because it depends on the fursuit. I like the realistic ones like this:
    Just a head

    But, some of my favorite suiters have too suits. Tayerr, Lamar, Telephone, and Hekiro are my favorites (I know Lamar and Tayerr are both worn by Cameron.)

    I voted realistic. Like the "Uncanny Valley" type of realism. Yeah.

    Depends on the species, character and actor.

    Personally I find realistic-style horses to be REALLY SUPER UNNERVING, but realistic tigers to be some of my favorites.
    As long as they avoid the "dead eye" thing, either can work.

    In general I think I prefer toony aesthetically, but again, depends very much on certain specifics.
    My own stuff is toony. I imagine my sona as toony.

    I've seen some really impressive realistic suits, which have tended to be my favorite... the one I saw in person at an anime con a couple years back was pretty amazing. I am impressed by the workmanship that goes into creating a good toony style suit, but my eye is always drawn most to the realistic ones.

    (but as for me, I don't think I'd want to wear more than ears and a tail, or maybe a hoodie... I love to look at a good suit but I'd probably pass out inside of one)

    I've seen some toony ones that are so adorable and perfect, while some of the realistic ones looks intimidating and badass. I think it depends on what you're aiming for. I feel like I could take my fursona (still under construction) in either direction, idk which yet.

    I myself prefer toony ones, but I´ve seen pretty amazing realistic-style suits. So, I think there is no wrong way to choose
