Non-furry costuming ruins furry cons
Who knew that every time I showed up in my Toy Soldier outfit at MFF I was helping to ruin the con experience for everyone around me?

Props to colley for putting up his entry that tipped me off.

And just to make a furry-Toy Soldier link, here's the obligatory experience-shattering picture of Feren in Toy Soldier uniform:

Hm. I'm not sure what he's proposing the dress code *should* be...I don't think it's all fursuits, all the time, but maybe!

I will just cover myself in carpet, as suggested by colley.

You could always wear the toy solider outfit while being a Jack-booted Thug (TM) for security and really ruin their day, lol.

I actually think this may be a out and out challenge for the security force this year.

It's funny because it's true.

And because of the irony of a furry bitching about not wanting to accept others...

When did they ever?

That's all it takes to ruin the lives of furries? I am SO THERE.

I want to define what the Opposite of Furry is, and dress as that.

Are you proposing we streak the next furry convention while carrying clippers? :o

There's a thought... !

Toy Soldiers for ruining fandoms, 2009!

Wow that was silly.

Cons are one of the FEW places the average person can dress up in costume publicly at all. I think people doing that are only adding to the character of the con, not taking away the furriness of it. In my brain, furry is supposed to be something of a creative outlet. Some people in this fandom don't WANT to get into a suit, or where partials for one reason or another but may have a lot of fun just dressing up at something else instead, as opposed to walking around in street clothes. Geez, way to try and take the fun out of cons! ;p

..though, it would be great if you did have a costume that looked just like your icon. ;)

*sigh* I hear that from more women.... ;)

[it would be great if you did have a costume that looked just like your icon]

You've made me briefly consider a black panther suit that could take the uniform. I guess one could get away with a partial, really. Handpaws, tail, head?
redstorm From: redstorm Date: April 8th, 2009 07:41 pm (UTC) (Link)
I'd recommend a partial over a full costume. I think they look much better with clothing.
Let me know if you ever feel like getting one ;)

ooOOoooh. So it's YOUR fault. And here they had me believing it was Mine. Because, after all, I'm SOOO unprofessional. snerk.

And what the hell is a clingon? Oh wait, isn't that a dryer sheet that you forgot to pull off the back of your jeans? Or that sock that stuck to the back of your shirt in the dryer? Or is it the toilet paper on the bottom of your shoe. No, no that's not it... a clingon is what you get when you DON'T WIPE YER NOSE.

Well, no wonder this guy thinks they're ruining fandom.

Oh and I wasn't kidding about the OMG FURRY UNIFORMZ! Folks who find this all lulz should put their heads together and come up with something along those lines to bring further amusement to the cons.
