I wore a fixer-upper fursuit once to a meet I organized and it was my first time wearing a suit, ever. It was so much fun. Parents hated me though because I'm not kidding - this suit was a throw-together of several different parts that different people brought. A canine head, an opossum body, a hyena-tiger tail, and leopard paws. The kids loved it, but the parents were like "omfg what is that"
And then the blacklights came on and the suit, being white, glowed.
As for the experience: the head was kind of badly made so it was a little bit of a pain but oh my god it was so much fun and I want to do it again.
