    Could furries help bring global unity to North Korea after the inevitable opening of the country?

    ...When did I imply that furries are "an amazing beat all?" I compared the potential of the concept of furries as a unifying presence to the influence of friggin pop music. That furry characters have the potential to be a pop culture focal point in which everyday people can start to interact...

    Financial Struggles and what to do

    Figure out where you need structure in your life, and ask your spouse what he needs in his. For example, it can help some people when to be told to go to bed, or that they need to make that one imortant phone call or something like that. If neither of you are the sort of person wired to get...

    Could furries help bring global unity to North Korea after the inevitable opening of the country?

    North Korea will wind up in some kind of "war." Probably just a spat resulting in their being occupied by someone else, but as I said, China's signalling that they're not going to be the protective older brother at any point. And yeah, as I stated in the OP, Squirrel and Hedgehog is propaganda...

    Help with first-time fursuit making! Big tail?

    May I suggest pool noodles as an affordable, stiff source of core? Noodles with holes could be cut and strung like beads to give some articulation. For a tail that copious, I would strongly suggest having a good 2/3rds of the tail in a sort of coiled position, with attach points at the tailbone...

    Could furries help bring global unity to North Korea after the inevitable opening of the country?

    I'm sure that a lot of you immediately want to ask what I'm on and where to get it. The answer to that is Higher Education! You see, I took a lot of Asian studies classes back in the day. And one of the most fascinating ideas in that particular avenue to me is Korean-Japanese relations in the...

    Should I fullsuit if I'm quite fat?

    bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net: List of Pokémon by height - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia There's gotta be a pokemon for you. Might I suggest Empoleon, Tyranitar or the Nido royalty?

    Dodging dumb accusations as a kid - What did/didn't you do?

    I was a young child, and my big sis was showing me how to give the new puppy a bath. The dog's previous owners used a spray bottle as punishment, so she hated water. As soon as the bath was over, she tore out of the bathtub, straight into the laundry bin, and rubbed herself so vigorously in the...

    How do you tell your family?

    "Just to let you know, I'll be out of town for a few days while I'm at a nerd convention." "Nerd Convention" works wonders, though my manager's son is a brony, so I don't have to explain that at work when I ask off. :P

    First Fursuit Head ready for fur??

    How long is the pile of your fur? I have concerns that the cheeks will be too poofy once the fabric is on, unless you're going for a very short fur.

    Anywhere to get fursuit feet paws?

    All over the place. Etsy, ebay, that oddly-formatted fursuit auction site. .. Are there any qualities that are not sated by a google search? Be more specific and maybe we can help you out.

    Shark furries: head fins, ears, and/or hair?

    So, I'm wrapping up one fursuit partial project and have noticed that Shark furries don't get as much love in the realm of fursuits. So I figured I'd have a backburner Shark head project, but in looking up stuff on shark fur trends, things are all over the map! There are tons of shark/canine...

    Trends in furry character designs

    Hybrids are actually pretty awesome for both "toony" stuff, self-represebtation *and* as subjects for realistic art. Being able to realisticly meld the physiology of, say, a bear and a tiger, is a truly masterful skill level.

    What's a way to describe the furry community to make it seem totally innocent?

    Furries are nerds. Say furries are nerds for cartoon animals, and you want to go to a nerd convention, like comic-con, but smaller and more specific. Assuming they're flexible enough to like animation, have them watch Zootopia. Though if you need some example of furry costuming stuff, I might...

    Badge cutting help?

    The biggest deal in cutting good shapes with scissors is to move the object, not the scissors. Any curves should be actively developed as opposed to being approximated by straight cuts. As for the inner corners around the lettering, don't be afraid of slightly overlapping your cuts- no one...
