I've been making fursuits for a really long time now, and in the past year, things have changed a lot. I've always enjoyed it, but for some reason, recently, its been very Zen-like .. its something that's helped me express creative urges and has been unbelievably fulfilling.
Its not even so much the process (though I enjoy it), its become more a love for seeing others romping around in something I built. In any event, stretched my artistic breadth on my more recent build, and actually pretty pleased with what came out. The owner wanted me to not-say who they were, but the character's name is Ty.
Also, yes, I will be at AC again.
....And another interesting factoid, this guy was the 101st fursuit I've built.
