You order them from suitmakers. Some of the better ones have up towards 2 years of queue.

As for seeing out- it depends on the suit, but most of them are made like proffessional mascots. The eyes consists of a tight mesh, so you can see out, it`s just sorta like wearing sunglasses (although your vision is reduced to a rather narrow angle).

As for th question on mostly canine- for some reason, most suiters seem to be canine, whereas a large portion of the non-suiters, who shy out of the bigger gatherings are feline. And then you have the rest of the species (best suit I ever saw was an armadillo!)

I don`t really understand why you would want to spend all day in a furry suit and how do they see out of those?

Some of the costumes were very well made though creepy.

Why are they mostly canine?
There are so many fuzzy critters to choose from it seems like there would be more diversity.

All of the hate is based on inaccurate generalizations, assumptions, and simple distaste or disinterest taken out of proportion.

People should learn that hate doesn`t make things go away. It just makes life pootier for people.

I just wish people would think before they make hateful assumptions and comments about groups of people they perceive as weird.

*sigh* You what I don`t understand? Why do people make fun of other peoples fandom? Is a furry really different then some one who likes star wars or star trek? And is a star trek / star wars fan any different then a football fan?

The similarities between fans of anything really are hilarious, From dressing up, to collecting crap from there favorite show or team or what ever etc, etc, yet people find the reasoning to say "No they`re weird I`m a fan of something totally better" or "they`re weirdos kill them now, and no my body paint and house full of sports memorabilia doesn`t make me weird at all...." What ever your into, that`s cool what ever, goes for everyone.

everything and more to what IceDragon just said. i`d really rather not go on about it, as many of you don`t really care enough to actually listen to what i (or any others, for that matter) have to say about what the fandom actually is.

I always have been amazed at how well some of these suits are made. It`s actually pretty cool.

I cant help but laugh at some of these comments. Really people? XD The furry fandom is nothing more than a fandom about anthropomorphism. There are not more `weirdos` in that fandom than the rest of the world. =p Feel free to ask me about it, as I have had first hand experience of these people.

I will also say this, as I do see a lot of comments relating about sex. Furries do not have sex any more than the rest of the human race, nor do they in fursuits (which can get in excess of 110 degrees in fair weather). Fursuiting is, also, not a huge part of the fandom. Its merely a way for some to express themselves or a character, and can be an art in itself to make them (you would be surprised in the work involved in it).

Course im sure the trolls will ignore me, but meh. This is for those who actually have a life and can comprehend the fact that it is just another fandom. Nothing too special. Just lots of fun. =p

In my experience, furries are a lot of fun and are mostly really nice people. And they have *awesome* taste in dance music. :)

The furry culture was launched to drive up business for mascot costume manufacturers. I am in the wrong industry.
